I've been adding a few bits to the guide but have been working in areas outside of those mentioned here. These lists of names.... Are they work in progress by somebody, or are they there for anyone to have a crack at? I've been leaving these subjects alone up until now incase one of you is currently working through them, ready to post your work in one go.
I'm planning to work on them, but feel happy to have a go. I was planning to work on them, I mean, but I haven't found the time yet. Maybe sth to do for next week. Must try...
Great job Tom Wiggle Smilie and greta job to Ungoliant as well Exclamation Smilie

ON THE ORIGIN OF TROLLS: Aule's other Big Idea, other than Dwarves, was Rock Giants. After the Awakening of the Elves, Eru graciously allowed these to have souls as well. Like the Shepherds of the Trees, these were intended to be Shepherds of the Rocks. But from their very inception, they were too stupid to be of much use to anyone. For Aule they cared not at all, since he was always away in Aman and not around. But Melkor was around, and to him most of the Rock Giants gave their allegiance. He quickly bred them with Entwives, to produce the first Trolls (who also had a judicious dash of Dragon genes). Trolls were utilized as heavy infantry by Melkor in his Wars, and were crossed with Orcs by Sauron to produce the Ologhai. As for the Rock Giants, their use as Breeding Stock greatly depleted their numbers. There were very few left by the time of the War of the Ring. They probably died out altogether in the early part of the Fourth Age. The Trolls definitely came to an end with Sauron's passing.
