Oh, I do recommend it, it's one of my favourites (actually all of the UT is something I really like, so much lore in there ).

Now, on to a new quote:

-----/ --/ ----/ --/ ---/ --/ ----/ ----/ ---/ ----/, -----/ --/ ---/ ------/ ----/.

Now, let's hear some letters!

Samwise has indeed the 100% correct sentence, however I'll give this one to Tuor, since I myself very well know how easy it is to make the "then/than mistake". Why, I still make it today in many of my posts...

So, Tuor, take it away!

Well, I realised it was a mistake since the E's had all been given, so it could only be an A at that spot.
