I am currently reading Ch-3 of The Fellowship of the Ring. I am also from the Harry Potter Wiki.
It's really confusing and i can't type anything that isn't the title and when i publish it it says error. help?
One thing I love about LOTR so much is the fact that the main villain. The evil Lord who threatens to take over the world, never physically appears (in the movies).
-Been a while since I read the books but I recall that he could physically manifest but only within Barad-Dur.
Either way I find it fascinating that such a minimal presence can create such an awesome sense of dread and terror.
And even if we never actually see his face in the movies. Not even his fair form, he still goes down as one of the most iconic villains in cinematic history
I cannot think of another example of a villain written this way
Hello! I haven't read lord of the rings and I don't know if I should. Can somebody please give me a rundown of the books? Thanks.
We have a chance to delve into the books AND the cinematic universe with this question, so let the lore flow like water 😎
DISCLAIMER: No main/ specific characters allowed for this question, so brace yourselves 😉
We know that both sides in the War of the One Ring had numerous allies in the form of creatures, beasts, magical beings, etc. (remember, we are talking about general characters or groups, not main/ named/ specific characters ✊🏻). You know, the ones who were just game changing for each side.
Which brings us to our discussion:
1) Who were the most valuable players for the forces of evil? Why so?
2) Who were the most valuable players for the forces of good? Why so?
Even in the War of the One Ring, each side certainly had their Most Valuable Players 😉
Which one would you pick?
Does anyone know any good Hobbit or Lord of the Rings video games?
In the book he invited 144 hobbits just because it was the sum of 111 (Bilbo's age) and 33 (Frodo's age). If i were Bilbo i would've invited
I thought I will show you guys my collection of Del Rey Middle Earth books. Tell me your thoughts of my collection in the replies.
Where’s the middle earth chat room now?
So in that scene in the Council of Elrond, Gandalf chants in Black Speech. He was unwilling to do this in the Shire, but why did he do it in Rivendell? He doesn't seem like the person who would talk in Black Speech just for the fun of it...
Hey everyone 😉
I couldn’t help but post about this, partially for fun, but also out of genuine interest in possible alternatives. I would say this discussion might involve some degree of tactical/ strategic reasoning, so let’s get started ✊🏻
When Sauron first distributed the rings of power, he was quite the deceiver, the extent to which is better outlined in the books.
We know that, once Sauron tried to use the one ring for the first time, the elves immediately knew something was up and the dwarves essentially weren’t affected (at least not in the way the rings were intended to).
So it got me thinking and I’d love your thoughts here:
1) Was the ploy of gifting magic rings a bit too overt or shady? Would anyone have reason to question his intent when he first offered them?
2) Could Sauron have taken a different approach to controlling the races of Middle Earth? Gifting items less extravagant, maybe?
3) If so, how might he have done it?
Elaborate gifts from Sauron, but perhaps a little TOO elaborate. How could he have better set his plan into motion and truly become Sauron, the Deceiver, as opposed to...
Sauron, the Sketchy? 😉
I drew the Doors of Durin!!
