    He's done a Vlog specifically about Goblins in celebration of The Hobbit! (plus steampunk and an author interview!)

    Clearly, (at least in the movies and video games), Fell beasts were powerful creatures and were deadly offensive predators, especially with the Nazgûl on them. They could choose either to bite their prey (less attacking radius but increased damage) or swoop down on them (larger attacking radius), scattering enemies apart or outright crushing them. If a Fell beast snatched a soldier, they could easily fly high into the air and drop their hapless victim to his death far below. Fell beasts were feared for their ferocity and speed, and were known as the fastest creatures in Middle-Earth since Smaug, the last great Fire-Drake.


    Being a fully-grown dragon, Smaug was both massive and powerful, possessing physical strength great en…

    So before I get started on this wiki I need to tell you I see a lot of things wrong with this wiki a lot of things that should be improved or changed. Many articles talk about things that a seperate (movie potrayal vs book potrayal) through one another like they are the same thing. Also a lot of information is missing regarding the history of middle earth series and finally a lot of templates are unclear or far to white to stick out as templates.

    Was Túrin blind?

            "....[Turin : ] What a sweet grace of fortune! Brown as a berry she was, small and slim as an elf-child, none could mistake her" Then Mablung was amazed, and he said "But some mistake is here! Not such was your sister. She was tall and her eyes were blue, her hair fine gold. The very likeness in woman’s form of Hurin her father. You cannot have seen her!"
    "Can I not, Can i not, Mablung?" he cried "But why no? For see, I am blind! Did you not know? Blind! Blind! Groping since childhood in a dark mist of Morgoth!"

    Was that pararaph proof? Or was he perhaps being metaphoric? Or maybe he was describing Lalaith being unaware of Nienor? I can hardly believe he was able to fight so many Orcs and slay Glaurung while not a…

    Hey everyone,

    Recently Wikia launched the "map" feature. As soon as I saw it I thought of using them on the lotr wiki. It would be neat to put them on location pages, showing where, for example, Gondolin is, or more notably, Minas Tirith.

    Just a thought. I think it we should activate the Maps feature here.

    Black Arrows

    November 13, 2014 by Dnxz0015

    In Peter Jacksons Hobbit trilogy we see his depiction of the black arrow.

    So what exactly is a black arrow and what do we know about it? If large iron arrows launched from seige devices are all that is needed to penetrate a dragons hide than what is the signifigance of a black arrow? Let's do a thorough analysis and come up with some rational, logical theories as to what exactly Jacksons black arrows are.

    Balin: Girion, the lord of the city, rallied his bowmen to fire upon the beast. But a dragon's hide is tough, tougher than the strongest armor. Only a Black Arrow fired from a wind-lance could have pierced the dragon's hide. And few of those arrows were ever made. The store was running low when Girion made his last stand.

    Dwarves are some of …

    Hey all, hoping everyone is doing great and in fine health. My album is finished - called The Silmarillion Symphony EP.1: The Deeps of Time. My pre-order sale is ending in the next 24 hours or so, and I hope many of you Silmarillion readers will go and grab one. If you order in the next day, you'll get the digital copy before the general public does, and get a great deal too. I'll be signing the hard copies, which are $12 shipping worldwide if you get them now. If you're overseas and think 5 of your friends would like one, I'll set you up with a great deal that won't be possible after tomorrow.

    We're kind of excited about this news! Hypable reports that a much beloved actor from the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy will be contributing to the soundtrack for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, but can you guess who it is? If you guessed Billy Boyd, aka Pippin, give yourself a pat on the back!

    Boyd will perform a new song titled “The Last Goodbye” for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ end credits. He co-wrote the song with Hobbit producers Phillipa Boyens and Fran Walsh. We will forever remember him as the adorable Pippin, but Boyd is actually the lead singer in a band named Beecake, which means he does have music experience!

    Of course, we will forever remember that scene in Two Towers when he sang "Edge of the Night" so we'…

Please can somebody tell me Tolkiens motives for making manwe the king of the valar?

    Greetings, fans of Middle Earth!

    Many tales have been told of the ever-menacing Black Gate, gateway to the land of Mordor, but there are more adventures still unwritten. We'd like to invite you to join with other Middle-earth fans to create an original story set in "The Dark Land" using Wikia's new interactive mapping feature!

    Set in an impregnable stone and iron wall stretching from the Mountains of Ash in the north, to the Ephel Duath in the west, the Black Gate was built by Sauron during the Second Age. And there it would stand until the last epic battle of the War of the Ring.

    You know the stories of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, but what could've happened in the Black Gate's shadow during the 60 years between these tales?

    A tribute to dragons.

    January 17, 2014 by TheWarrior29

    Dragons were ancient, powerful creatures, as feared by others as they were admired in Middle-earth. They were immortal, powerful, and intelligent. Their exact origin is debated, though it was clearly stated that they were created by Morgoth in some sense. Dragons lived throughout the First, Second, and Thirdages of Middle-earth and may have lived longer. They were originally bred by Morgoth during the first age to serve as gigantic shock troopers and mobile artillery. The first dragon ever seen in Middle-earth was Glaurung, who Morgoth used to great effect during the third and fourth battles in the War of the Jewels. Like most of the creatures made or twisted by Morgoth, they were capable of reproducing natually. Dragons were sometimes ref…

    It's a pretty neat idea right? 

    I'm not saying it would be easy but just imagine using a software that 'Google Maps' uses?

    Imagine being able to go in 'street view' at Hobbiton, Minas Tirith or even Gondolin (in the silmarillion) and also the Mines of Moria.

    Just an idea..

    The Lord of the Rings film trilogy is full of epic battles, iconic scenes and beautiful locations. Many of the scenes stand out, and choosing a top five was very difficult. However, after much pondering, I have come up with (in my opinion) the five most powerful, moving and stunning scenes in the cinematic trilogy. Enjoy!

    (WARNING: SPOILERS!) 5. Sam and Frodo's battle against Shelob. This scene could not have been more perfect. The scene is dark (as it should be), creepy and visually striking. Peter Jackson excels at creating an intense and suspenseful atmosphere for this scene. 

    Not only does this scene keep the audience at the edge of their seats, it delivers a picture-perfect scene of some of the deepest and darkest evil that dwells in the…

    Lego Hobbit Petition

    December 23, 2013 by LOTRfan394

    So a lego hobbit game has been announced in 2014. But it currently seems it will only contain events from An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug. If you enjoyed playing the Lego LOTR game then you will probably enjoy playing a Lego Hobbit game; but without the complete trilogy in the game, it will probably take away some fun of it. So please everyone on this wiki, please sign this petition to push the game's date to 2015 so it can have the events of the 3rd hobbit film. It will mean a lot to the fans. Thanks!
