"Boromir had a real hardon for saving Gondor"
"Dain Ironfoot rolls a 20 and gets a critical hit on Azog"

Needless to say, we'll see you on the frontpage

My voice was heard, thank you galgawine. I would like to know about Minas Morgul and the ringwraiths. Wasn't it men who built Minas Morgul (and the Black Gate) but it fell to the ringwraiths?

Is there a part about the Nazguls and the Witch King?
If not, any chance you can get any thing at them?

I see ringwraiths, The Witch King and Minas Morgul being requested a lot. They would be awesome for the next part!
But I'd also like to know more about dragons, ents, balrogs etc. You know, the creatures of Middle Earth.

The Tom Bombadil thing is actually not correct. We know what Tom is because we know what's been implied by his appearance.

Claiming that Tom is "the personification of the Earth," and is thus unaffected, is an old theory about what he is, but it's also factually incorrect. The power Sauron wields can corrupt the Earth. The spiders represent that, as do the Wargs and a few other things. The One Ring holds the power to poison and corrupt the earth and all things upon it, because of how it was wrought (which is another explanation entirely involving Melkor and what the elves were trying to do when they made their three rings).

Furthermore, Toms own statements place him at a point 'before' the Earth began. He didn't awaken at the first drops of rain, or was born the moment the light came into being. He bore witness to them taking place. He was already present before they happened, in other words. He remembers the before time, when there was only darkness and it was not terrible, because evil had not yet come into it

Tom isn't "the Earth."

The only explanation that's made sense is that Tom is one of the Ainur, or the Primal Spirits created by Iluvatar, who is essencially YHWH. The Ainur, not quite Archangels and not quite polytheistic gods, but in the same general category, sang the world into being, at Iluvatar's prompting.

Many of them descended to Arda, or the world, afterwards, for various reasons. Of them, there were fourteen that we know by name, that were greater than the others. Those that were great were known as the Valar, and were in essence gods. Those that were lesser were known as the Maiar, and were rather like demigods. Gandalf, Saruman, Sauron, and Radaghast are all Maiar, just for reference.

Tom must be one of the Ainur. There is no other thing he could be. The debate is not what he is, but rather, which ONE is he. There are many theories as to this.

I have my own, if any cares to hear it, but he can't be a personification of the Earth.

Can someone tell me what tom is? Also I'd like to hear about where all the races came from. I know you covered the dwarves, elves, and humans, but here did the hobbits come from or goblins, or ents.

The only answer on what Tom is, is what his wife, Goldberry said. She was asked: "What is Tom?" and answered "Tom is". He simply is. Tolkien himself said that Tom was one of the questions that will never be answered...No matter what you hear abozt him being, it´s just theories, as there really is no answer.

What are the other books that Tolkein has written which connect to the LOTR and the Hobbit? I am very interested to read them now!
