I agree Sam, I like the UT version better too. There is also more about Turin in Lost Tales 2. I went back and read all 3 versions together, and it really filled in a lot of details for me. It also made so much more sense.
Well, if this thread is suppose to be about the ironies of Turin, lets talk about them. There are quite a few out there. Courtman14 this is YOUR thread, so I'll let you get the ball rolling so to speak.
