Dissagree about Uruks of any kind or description having feelings.

Didn't Tolkien say just the opposite? Or at least that they only feel negative emotions like hate, fear and the need to inflict cruelty on others?

True, Tolkien did say that. But they must of had feelings, otherwise where did all the baby Uruks come from? Just cause they didn't have feelings for other beings (except maybe their lunch) doesn't mean they didn't have feelings for eachother.

Good point. I'd love to read an Uruk love story, that'd be fantastic!

LOL *Plastic

as for a computer game of lotr a RTS would be nice... maybe you could play one of the wizards or sauron or the stuart of gondor or the hobbits...

or something like diablo... not a great thinking game just go and slay loads and loads and even more enemies

Halo_Black

You are probably right about Orc feelings, but do you need to experience positive feelings to procreate?

I am a writer and the idea of an orc love story intrigues me. If I decide to do something, I'll post it.

Yes please Alyssa!!!!!!
Plus, you definitely don't need positive feelings to procreate, a couple of gallons of Tequila usually suffices!

No idea, but yeah I am! Got a window over on the Chatroom as well. Nobody else there though. Despite both you and Golly being here in spirit at least! (And if you're reading this Golly, Arsenal are gonna get trashed in an hour and a half!!!)

Grrr. 1-1 halftime. Trust Chelsea to ruin my Christmas.

bttt, didn't Melkor create Orcs by corrupting them in the darkness? So like Elves, they would have feelings, unless they had evolved too far from their source ancestors. And I read somewhere that Uruk-Hai were bred by Saruman by the mixing of Orc and human (Dunleadings) stock, so that they could resist sunlight. So they could derive their ability to feel from that side of the gene pool, I guess. Unless I'm wrong again, and you guys are talking about the trolls. :( *ungoliant

No, I think you're right, *ungoliant. At least, that's what they said in the film too. :)
But why shouldn't Uruk-Hai have feelings? They were elves once, right? There must be something of an Elf left in them, hidden deep down somewhere...
As for the computer game, I agree with Halo. They will have to make it damn good to be half as good as the book or the film.
Btw, did we meet before, Alyssa? I don't think so, so hi! :D
