Not all spirits are Ainu or Eruhini. The description of Creation somehow skips quickly over the flora and fauna and other things "not quite human". Animals are spirits - both normal animals, and the...

The (totally not) Last Chapter

I was gonna call this version final, but I think a more apt term is the Completed Version (https://drive.google.com/file/d/13H5uqbvtMFykrvdHRYWCNftr8xK_l15i/view?usp=sharing). ;) It is still subject...

Oi! That animal can nearly talk - or would talk, if Tolkien let Frodo & co stay in Rivendell for just a bit longer. :p




I think part of it really was that the Nazgul were deliberately "being...

Yes. The plan was not to lay siege to Minas Tirith to starve it out, the plan was to conquer by fear and fire and dark magic within a few days and more onward to presumably secure the lands beyond -...

11 sounds like one of the -grims. Apparently Isengrim II dug the Great Smials, so I'd go with him.

If it's any help, this is what I have up on the score right now (attached).


ETA: "...fear that's only felt by slaves and cowards in the dark!..." - it just gets better. Still going on repeat. ^.^

Well, yes, and I had an internal debate about that. See, the chord technically belongs to Sauron. But then when I put the flute's note, it sounded a bit like a string snap, and musically it was...

Never go to Tolkien for council, for he will say both no and yes. ;)

But my (much less scholarly) opinion is that if Elves served as the prototype for orcs, whether directly or as a "model" for a...

So I have a question:

If a woodchuck can chuck wood, how many Finwes can a Finwe Finwe? ;)


I am also imagining this scenario, which probably confirms exactly why Noldorin mothers named their...

As long as they are somehow separate and recognizable, doesn't matter to me how they are written - just wanted to make sure they don't become the same chord!

Quick note:
- Credits with portraits sound like a nice option

Would it help if I made the recordings equal to the time of the music (ie start recording on the first note)? Because for Melian I haven't been doing that, as she only starts singing 2 stanzas in.

No answers, just thoughts.

3. Sounds like repetition is in order. Maybe a name structurally akin to, say, Fingolfin, or Ghan-buri-ghan. But don't have one to fit the clue in a way that makes...

Sauron wouldn't be any more after Bree than after any other settlement not yet under his rule, I don't think. It has strategic importance as a "crossroads" town, but no inherent value beyond that....

I re-recorded Melian (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZIEssv406j-SBCsYUqZ2D0OD2HPaX6kn/view?usp=sharing), I think this sounds clearer, but there are a couple thumps during the breaks in singing. How...
