Guys I need big time help my mom is putting on a lord of the rings/ Hobbit party and she asked me to write the trivia question SHE WANTS 50 TRIVIA QUESTIONS!!! Can you guys give me some please? If you do want to help the question can be from book or movie she wants mainly book trivia question but it doesn’t mater.
What's on your mind?
Should Gandalf have not allowed Saruman to live when they captured him in Orthanc? I mean, was it necessary for Gandalf to give him a choice of redemption?
I think he should have killed him on the instant or he won't have got the chance to take control over Shire?
I think that Nibin-noeg(Petty-dwarves) are very similar to Drúedain. Both people were considered to be "animals" by some people and races, just by being different from other sub-groups of their species. For being considered to be "animals" they have suffered for centuries. In my opinion they deserved better.
Do you found them similar too? And would you give them a better chance?
I found this picture on the Pinterest:
It is said that it was found in Erebor but one person commented that it is possible since one of the silmarils was buried deep somewhere in Middle Earth so that intrigued me. Then again, elves would probably know about it but they don't seem to care about the Arkenstone.
Do you know anything about that?
A lot of anti-sjw's and Tolkien purists are fearful that Amazon's show will have actors who are not white skinned, insisting that Amazon remain truthful to Tolkien's descriptions. Since the books were written in the 40's and 50's, it's no wonder why no major character had non-white skin, and with more and more anti-sjw's feeling "oppressed", this route may have to be taken to avoid this.
On the other hand, times have changed a lot since Tolkien died, and our values have changed. Nowadays we allow more people to work in the acting buisness, regardless of their skin color. DC even had a Maori actor play Aquaman. So there are arguments for diversity in Amazon's show. And I think I've found a way to have diversity, without contradicting anything Tolkien wrote. Have some original characters be Easterlings, Haradrim, and Variags.
We know so little about the nations and cultures of the men who serve Sauron, all we get are ponderings from Sam (in the books) and Faramir (in the movies) when he looks at that Haradrim corpse and wonder what his name was, where he came from, if he really was evil, and what made him leave home?
And that's a good question. Are the men who serve Sauron evil? Were they deceived? Were they forced or blackmailed into fighting? Do they have families back home in Rhun, Harad, and Khand? And since those nations fought in the War of the Last Alliance, this is a perfect oppurtunity to explore the lives of the people of the East. Maybe even have some who are protagonists who see through Sauron, but the rest of their nation laughs at them.
Is anybody learning or know some Elvish or any of Tolkein's language? Which of his languages is your favorite and why do you like it? Do you ever speak it to people? What is your favorite phrase? Just curious!😊
I went skinny dipping with Sauron and I have absolutely no regrets.
I have read The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, I am currently reading Unfinished Tales and I plan to read the three Great Tales books. I also plan to read some selected parts of The History of Middle-earth. I am not that interested in earlier versions of stories published elsewhere, or collections of information that mainly summarise information from other books. What I'm looking for is the most final versions of stories and collections of information that aren't included in other works or greatly expand upon what is included in other works (similar to the content of Unfinished Tales). In any case, I will borrow the books from a library so I will not buy any of them.
Do we have OFFICIAL Discord server for LotR FANDOM? If we have please share me link in the comments.
