But of those unhappy ones who were ensnared by Melkor little is known of a certainty. For who of the living has descended into the pits of Utumno, or has explored the darkness of the counsels of Melkor? Yet this is held true by the wise of Eressea, that all those of the Quendi who came into the hands of Melkor, ere Utumno was broken, were put there in prison, and by slow arts of cruelty were corrupted and enslaved; and thus did Melkor breed the hideous race of the Orcs in envy and mockery of the Elves, of whom they were afterwards the bitterest foes.
So, the Uruks weren't different from the Orcs then?
The Uruk hai were a strain of Orcs bred by Sauron and first seen in Middle Earth in TA 2475 when they sacked Osgiliath
Sauron was sending a Ringwraith to Isenguard to retrieve Pippin from the clutches of Saruman, thus Gandalf wanted to get Pippin away from the area. For if Pippin was captured he would spill the beans about Frodo's mission. The safest place in Middle-earth for Pippin to be hidden was Minas Tirith.1. What was the point of taking Pippin to Minas Tirith?
I think they considered the project so hopeless, that Elrond just wanted the Ring out of Rivendell and Gandalf was going to have to play it by ear once he had conferred with Celeborn and Galadriel.2. What was the expected path for Frodo to take to Mordor which would have been thought about at the Counsil of Elrond?
From all the little people in the country's savings and plowshares. The rulers would also go into debt to finance their wars, thus requiring higher taxes; and sometimes they would even trump-up charges against their creditors to keep from having to pay off their war debts.3. Where do they get all the metal and stuff required for the armies from???
Why would an Elvish rope hurt Gollum?
