Re: Is Legolas coward? Question Im not Sure Was Ever Answered.

I don't think so. Archers do not fight in close combat, because their strength is in accuracy and speed. They can hit enemies from afar, without exposing themselves to danger.

Re: Two Towers - Observations and “mistakes” that don’t really matter but are fun and curious

Uruk-hai restaurants? So funny! I can picture a tough Uruk-hai boss complaining about the "mystery meat stew." Another one argues over who gets the last "second breakfast." Maggoty bread was definitely stolen from Rohan. Served with some rude orcish "hospitality" on the...

How Did Smaug Stay Fed for So Long?

I've been thinking about Smaug the dragon from The Hobbit. He admits that he was young when he first took over the Lonely Mountain, and now he's much older. Dragons must eat a ton to stay alive that long! But after Smaug came, he totally decimated the countryside around the mountain. All that was le...
