Re: Episode 5 (Spoilers, including discussion of the preview)

One way or the other, it's definitely a different story than the one that Tolkien wrote!

Re: The Stranger of Udûn? - New Info and the Identity of Meteor Man

Out of curiosity, why? Halbrand seems on the face of it to be a more sensible option. What is sensible about having Sauron/Annatar pose as a human, a lesser being, when he is supposed to pose as a great giver of gifts able to provide the Elves with skills that they don't already have? What is sensi...

Re: The Stranger of Udûn? - New Info and the Identity of Meteor Man

To be clear, I don't *want* the Stranger to be Sauron (honestly, I don't want the Stranger, period). But after the Mithril/Silmaril thing, nothing will surprise me, and there seems to be a lot of signals that he is Sauron. To be clearer, I would much rather that The Stranger turn out to be Sauron t...

Re: World News Thread

The good news is that Italy elected its first female prime minister, Giorgia Meloni.

The bad news is Giorgia Meloni appears set to become Italy’s most far-right prime minister since Mussolini

This seems to be much ado about nothing. More about someone trying to capitalize than actual information.

Re: Episode 5 (Spoilers, including discussion of the preview)

For what it's worth, "an ephemeral idea" is how Christopher described the idea that Gil-galad was Fingon's son ( HoMe XII, p. 351). When I said "I don't recall what that is" I was not referring to what the ephemeral idea was, which I do recall (and discuss at length in my book)....

I seem to recall something that indicated that they were using the "ephemeral" version, but I don't recall what it is that is.

Re: Episode 5 (Spoilers, including discussion of the preview)

I'll still wait and digest the Mithril-Silmaril bit and see how big of a thing they make it into eventually and how much of it is just shrugged off as an urban legend. To quote the book, the show hangs at the edge of a knife. Stray but a little and it will fail. I dunno, I feel like the in-universe...
