What are everyone's thoughts on the disfavor toward Rings of Power?
What's on your mind?
And I am thinking of starting the books with Silmarillion. Do you think it's good to start with?
While I always see Sun imagery as cool, especially with blue and gold colors, I never thought Numenor to have it. Sure the race of humans awoke with the sun so the sun is probably an important symbol for humans, but I expected Numenor to have either a white tree, the Star of Earendil, or some marine imagery in its flags and armor. So a sun feels weird to me.
Will other iconic third age characters like Glorfindel, Thranduil, Haldir and Celeborn be in Rings of Power? They would be around i think right? Also first age characters like Feanor, Beren and Luthien etc?

So mist of us must have seen the map of middle earth and beleriad so does tolkien have ever showed a map beyond what most people see just like what are the lands beyond mordor
Does anybody think or know if Tolkien used floriography references in the books (idk why he would but it would be cool). Maybe there is a reason there are snapdragons and sunflowers in Bilbo's garden??
I feel like Eagles would be Maiar

Okay. So Ive been listening to and reading the novel of the Return of the King, and it says that aside from Merry's Barrow-blade of Westernesse, 'no other blade ' could've harmed the Witch-King during the Battle of Pelennor Fields. However, this begs the question: what about Glamdring and Andurìl? This passage in the book seems... strange to say the least. I say that because both swords are extremely powerful and of great reverance, and have cut down or pierced foes that are FAR MORE POWERFUL than the Witch-King; Narsìl/Andurìl bested Sauron, and Glamdring bested the Balrog, respectively. Narsìl/Andurìl also has an unbreakable enchantment on it thanks to its sheath from Lothloríen, making it the strongest blade in Middle-Earth. While the same can't be said of Glamdring, it is still powerful enough to slay the Balrog in combat without breaking or disintegration, which is all the more impressive, given the fact that the aforementioned creature was a corrupted Maiar, the equivalent of angels in Middle-Earth.
(Although the novel doesn't explicitly say Glamdring was used during the Battle of the Peak, it can be assumed since Gandalf still had the sword with him during his resurrection, and wielded it throughout the rest of the War of the Ring).
So, with all this in mind, I think it can be safe to assume overall that Glamdring and Andurìl could also deal harm to the Witch-King
Some trolls turn to stone in sunlight
The sun is the vessel for the last fruit of Laurelin
The Phial of Galadriel (along with her hair) hold the hallowed light of the Two Trees of Valinor
Therefore - would Galadriel’s Phial, or merely her presence, turn these trolls to stone?
