Can anyone tell me a bit about Morgoth? What is he? Where did he come from?
User avatar #136 - enemyoftrn (09/18/2013) [-]
That last fact; not only Sam did all that, but he also pretended to be a mighty Elven warrior, in order to scare off the Orcs that has taken Frodo to that tower, after Shelob the Spider stings him. He only use shadows, words and cunning, and half the remaining orcs fled that tower/castle.

I went to Hobbiton this summer, and it wasn't left for a year for the Lord of the Rings films, as it was all made of polystyrene and plywood and destroyed directly after filming so no-one would see Hobbiton before the films, it was, however, built again permanently and left for a year before the filming of the Hobbit, and the dirt pathin the grass that Bilbo runs down was deliberately formed by tourist groups visiting the set by the instruction of Peter Jackson, so the path looked natural rather than manufactured.

Samwise Gamgee is based off of 'Batmen' used in the British armies in 1914. They were personal assistants assigned to commanding officers.

One of the things that really pisses me off about Lord of the Rings fans who haven't read the books is that they automatically take Peter Jackson's take on things as literal. I mean sure, Peter Jackson is a massive fan of the books and did an incredible job of taking a huge and difficult piece of fiction and adapting it to the big screen but he missed out a lot and interpreted things in a lot of different ways. Frodo for example was portrayed as a useless tit for most of the fims, despite the fact that in the books Frodo is pretty badass, one of the bravest in the group and often comes up with plans to help the Fellowship out. Rant over.

So basically there are demi-gods, known as the Valar,  which helped create the entire world, "Ea". The God of these gods is known as Ilúvatar. Morgoth was one of these demi-gods who helped create the world, but became a total cunt and sundered the 						****					 out of it a bunch of times. His fortress was in Angbang which (was) in Northern Middle Earth. When the elves "awoke" in Middle Earth, Morgoth knew about it before the other Valar (because at this point Morgoth had fled to Middle Earth to escape Aman, the "undying lands" to the West across the Sundering Seas from Middle Earth). He lured and captured many of these elves, and tortured and twisted them into the orcs. He also created the Balrogs and other dark creatures.  Sauron was one of his captains, and betrayed the elves and deceived men for his own gain. Sauron is a Maiar, basically a demi-demi-god (handmaiden to the demi-gods...?) along with Gandalf, Sauruman, etc. After capturing and imprisoning Morgoth once for an Age, hey basically 						***********					 them into believing he'd changed, then went and sundered some more 						****					 and fled back to Middle Earth. Around this point, some 						****					 goes down with the elves living in Aman, and a bunch of them go over to pout in Middle Earth.

If i am not mistaken, there are 6 lands like Mordor, only bigger, with the same lords as Sauron, only more powerful, but none of them helped Sauron of three reasons.
1) they considered him unworthy
2) they could take Mordor for themselves when he dies
3) They are dark lords, they don't help anyone but themselves.

Which means Morgoth was only one of 7 dark lords, but Sauron was the only one that sought to take Middle-earth. the others didn't bother and should they try, it would be an easy match for them since they didn't use rings that could destroy them in the end. Because it was a weakness.
User avatar #80 to #51 - EventHorizon (09/18/2013) [-]
No, Morgoth was one of the Valar of which there are a limited and clearly identified number. Sauron was a Maiar, of which there a large and unidentified number of. There may be other dark lords like Sauron, but none of them are involved in the history of Ea.

frodo acknowledges sam quite clearly when he says "Frodo wouldnt have made it far without sam" and sam tells him to stop joking and he says he wasn't. come on... I know people remembered because that was one of the biggest feelz moments in the movie.... Samwise the Brave.

Wasn't Morgorth mentioned a few times in Nightfall in Middle-Earth?

i thought no one knew legolas's real age at the time? it was just estimated to be around 2000-3000 years old? Also I believe JRR Tolkien said nothing about Sam being the hero? It was something many readers decided for themselves?

i could be wrong..

In the past sauron was a good guy living in the numenor's island.
Than he said:
>"who cares lets just became the villain. i see no way i could possibly fail, even tho my master morgoth, who's stronger than me, got tossed outside existence with his arms cut off fron illuvatar himself."
