Re-imagining the Ringwraiths

As I brought up in a different topic I've been doing a reading of the books after several years and I had an almost complete change in my views of the Ringwraiths.

The Nazgul might just be the...

Glad I stumbled upon this thread Huey. Thanks for sharing! I'll try to read his Helm's Deep analysis at a later date.

I believe there is a mention that Aragorn was taller than Boromir, but Boromir was stronger.

Although the line of Stewards in Gondor was separate from their line of Kings (Anarion's line) that...

Iím ok with waiting but I see a few others would have to drop if it doesnít start in a week?

Iíll poke morm and Eomer who were too busy for my game in June, but said August might clear up for them.

Ahh, thank you. I recalled Aragorn mentioning Bree was also guarded, but didn't think or remember it was to the same extent as the Shire. Aragorn using 'ceaselessly' suggests that it was.

What's...

The Ordinary People of Bree-land

I'm in the midst of a Lord of the Rings re-reading and finished Book I today. The movies sort of muddle a lot details, which makes more of a mess of things than I remembered.

One part that I did...

I'm keeping my expectations very low. I'm willing to give it a chance early on, just because I think it's a good thing to have some new blood in adapting the world. Jackson/Walsh/Boyens had sort of...

I agree with G55, at the time you're referring to, whether it's book-Eomer or movie-Eomer, I don't think there's a reason Eomer would seek out the Elves for aid.

Granted, I can't think of a movie...

Agreed! The Cold be heart and hand and bone is probably my favorite poem (more like an incantation but still) in Lord of the Rings.

I'm going to hold you to sharing that Ghost writer role you were brain-storming. :D

Inspired by Legate's Kafka quoting.
