LadyoftheRings: Welcome to the forum.

Elves are cool. Smile Smilie
Big Smile Smilie Thanks!

Being a dragon is fine as long as you are used to also being a loner where your only source of social interaction (conversation) is either trying to rob and/or kill you or and is destined to become your next meal. Smile Smilie


hmmm ... never thought of that. But I gues I could talk to whom ever I want to if I was a dragon even in the middle of the night. And dragons have always fascinated me ! They are so ... well, big, fiery,terrible ... I can't find a proper word for that ...
Yes, Dragons are VERY cool. Have you ever read The Last Dragonlord? If you like dragons you HAVE to read it. It's So good!
A big welcome to Orange, LadyoftheRings and all other newbies.
Hey Boring! Welcome back! Good to see you here again! Big Smile Smilie

Oooh! I hadn't thought of being a dragon. Would be so cool! Scaring the hell out of everyone! Big Laugh Smilie
Elves totally rule! Legoals is an elf! Elf Smilie
Thanks for advise LadyoftheRings (hope I got your name right) but it's not likely that I will use it - not a very large selection of books in english in my country.
Elves are nice beautiful creatures. But I always wanted to be big and evil, so I gues I would make a better dragon than elf.
Nope, wouldn't want to be a dragon. Too many hotshots out there trying to kill dragons! Super Scared Smilie
not sure if ive posted in here or not, but im sure you can figure out which race for me! The one with the fine bearded ladies of course! Big Laugh Smilie
I would want to be an elf or a hobbit. I love them both.
Cool Smilie Yay, another dwarf! 'Bout time too Gimli, I was feeling all lonely in here!

But being a dragon would be cool too. I'd want to be a fire-breather like Ancalagon the Black, not some wimpy land-bound cold wyrm.
I'd come back as an elven warrior like Lord Elrond Cool Smilie
Hey Gromdul, good choice and welcome to the forum if I forgot to do it yesterday. Smile Smilie

I think I to would like to be a Dwarf; however, if those bearded lady Dwarves don't use an underarm deodorant, I may change my mind. Some of those underground halls and passageways can be Shocked Smilie quite close. Winking Smilie

I now find that I did welcome you yesterday Gromdul, so consider yourself doubly welcomed. Ha Ha Ha Smilie

I want to be an ranger so I can sleep under the stars. Smoke Smilie
Why, you can sleep under the stars anyway Red. Just watch out for those coyotes, Super Scared Smilie they're getting nastier all the time.
That's cos the d*mn roadrunner keeps getting away. Mad Smilie

I think other than being a hobbit, a wizard is kinda cool with all the power and stuff. Of course it 'd be better if I could be a young witch with the same amount of power as a wizard - I don't think there are any witches in the book or maybe I'm mistaken. Wink Smilie
According to many folk, Galadriel was some fell sorceress, so I suppose in a way she was a bit of a witch.... and then there was Lobelia Sackville-Baggins of course... I'd have definitely called that cankerous old biddy a witch (not to her face though).

Yet she had no spells, but if she set out on you with her old umbrella, you might be in for a dizzy spell. Her fiercest weapon was a sharp tongue. I doubt if she had any swear words in her repertoire, knowing no sailors from which to learn them: she was of upper crust Hobbiton after all. Very Big Grin Smilie
Big Laugh Smilie Yep, I'd avoid her at all costs. Super Scared Smilie

Hi there Naira! *waves* If you want to be a female spellcaster, try Luthien, the greatest spellcaster of them all. She whupped Morgoth's arse! Go Tinuviel!

Unless you bring the Maia in of course, then I suppose Melian would be the most powerful (in my opinion).
Hey Naira!

What about the Witch King? Big Laugh Smilie
Tommie, the Witch King of Angmar wasn't female!
I know, Grondy, therefore I put the Big Laugh Smilie smiley. Oh well, guess I was in a weird mood yesterday. Tongue Smilie
And pray tell when are you ever *not* in a weird mood, Bombadil? Big Laugh Smilie
Hmmm. I'd have to think about that! Tongue Smilie
I know what I'd be. An Elf. 'cause their COOL.
I would have to go with..um..hard to say..NOT! An Elf of course! I agree with Ally on this one Orc With Thumbs Up Smilie But I`m not sure where I want to settle..either in Rivendell or Lothlorien..I LOVE trees and forests, but I also love Rivendells open and warm enviroment...maybe I can travel between? Smile Smilie Yup, definetly an Elf Smoke Smilie

I think not, I have much nicer hair than Legolas. Tongue Smilie


LOL a little off the topic here but Plastic, you DO have nice hair! i saw ur pic from that 'what do you look like' thread- what shampoo do you use? Wink Smilie
/me blushes

Awww... thanks. And what's shampoo Wink Smilie
At first I DEFINITLY wanted to be an elf, but then I felt they seemed so serious and sad. Then I thought maybe I'd be a elven freindly hobbit. But they are all fun and games and eating and it's a long way to Rivendell with such short feet. And I'd be even shorter than I am and hobbit men aren't all that attractive. (Short, fat, hairy men..) So I decided that a human might suit me best. I can party with the hobbits, enjoy and learn from the visdom of the elves, hang around yummy guards in Gondor and wear pretty dresses.

Or maybe a female wizard, I'd get to do all those things AND do magic. *lol*
Ok, well, I look like a Beorning and I kinda have the attitude of one. And I really like Honey, honeycakes and cream... But I like meat, too, and T think they don't eat meat.

I respect the hardiness of the Dunedain and their wisdom and ability to affect the plan of Illuvatar where no one else can... But they are not immortal and seem to have lots of problems govering themselves.

Dwarves are cool but just too stodgy and i like living in the sunlight.

I have been accused of being a really overgrown Hobbit due to my fondess of an uncomplicated lifestyle and desire to get as many meals as I can a day. Second Breakfast anyone? And their hobbit holes look really comfortable... So that is a definite possibility.

I love music, song, singing, listening to stories and storytelling, good food, the Moon and the Stars and being in Nature. I would really love to have the gracefulness of an Elf. Preferably a Vanyar or Noldorin Elf, but any will really do. And immortality is a really nice bonus. Yes, I would like to be an Elf. Not an overbearing, distant, imperious, too full of himself Elf, but rather a friendly giving elf with a big house for guests to hang in and food and music to share. Actually, just like Elrond.
I would be an elf as well, most likely a Nandor. Ahh to walk in Ossiriand maybe now and again travel to Doraith but stay in Ossiriand most of the time. I guess it's because I'm a bit of a tree hugger.
Hey no one has thought about being an eagle?
I'm still a Nandor though.

Failing that being Maiar would be pretty sweet, get a nice mortal avater but even if thats destroyed just return to Valinor and get a new one....I mean can the Elves do that??


It depends on if the doom af Mandos hangs over them or not!

Actually, I remeber reading somewhere that the Noldorin Elf Glorfindel, that helped Frodo get to Imladris by lending him Asfaloth was the same Glorfindel that sacrifced himself to kill the balrog leading the enemies that pursued Tuor, Idril and the refugees of the fallen Gondolin.

If this is the case, then elves can come back. Maybe they just have to do something really bad-assed and righteous to pull it off.

I think I read it at another Tolkien site called The Grey Havens.

I must admit, I hadn't thought about being a Valar or a Maiar... I wouldn't mind being a Maiar. Valar have too much responsiblity. Though, i still think that I'd like to be and elf Like Elrond the most. Especially with a nice big house... and lots of meals. Big Smile Smilie
It implies in the silmarillion that they are two different Glorfindel's but it would be cool if there the same. The mother of Feanor can also come back at anytime, she just choose's not to, she didn't do anything that much out of the ordinary. I mean Feanor wasn't that super.
I don't know who I'd be, most likely an Elf but I don't know if I am Elfy enough. Big Smile Smilie I would rather be like the noble,brave, long living Aragorn types!!

Dwarves are cool though.

I read a long and detailed essay on this subject on another site some months ago. A lot of research had been done into the subject by the postAuthorID of the essay, but even his answer was unconclusive. Evidence did seem to suggest, however, that Tolkien had written the Fall of Gondolin very early in his career, and had included Glorfindel in this story. He had also included this first Glorfindel and a couple of other elven lords in another unpublished story, in which they had failed in some quest or something (I think it might have been something to do with guarding Aredhel), after which Glorfindel was seeking some sort of penance.

It then suggested through his evidence that Tolkien had introduced another Glorfindel in Rivendell, and at first Tolkien had intended the two Glorfindels being the same elf. Apparently, however, as his writing increased and his stories evolved, he ran into difficulties explaining how the two elves could be one and the same. The main arguement had been, if Glorfindel had died in Middle Earth during the First Age, how had he managed to return back to Middle Earth for the Third Age, when Aman was effectively closed to passage for the Noldor.

Anyway, having come across difficulties of his own making, Tolkien had then gone to pains to make the two Glorfindels different elves. Not painful enough maybe, in my opinion, but like the fate of Elrond's sons, and the mystery of what is Tom Bombadil, he has left us with another mystery to muse over.
Tulkas!!! I would like to kick Morgoth's butt.
What do you mean "what race would i be"?
I am an elf!
It also says that Finrod was seen walking below the trees with his father in Valinor!
If I culd be any other race i'd be an elf because then i'd have the chance to talk the cooliest language ever and i'd also be as light as the wind...

elfs ar just the cooliest Elf Smilie
There are so many races to choose from but theres no question about it, I would choose to be an elf. Theyre just so smooth and beautyful and they cant die from old age. Wink Smilie
i think Einar should be a numenorian as she/he (delete as appropriate, i dont mean to cause offence) is obviously afraid of death!
Of course I would be an elf, they are wise, beautiful, graceful.........I have been fascinated with them since I read the part when Frodo meets them the first time.

But maybe I could also be an ent, I can go really mad when I see people hurting trees, once when I was little our neighbour cutted a tree and when I saw him I started to cry and to tell him to stop......He came to speak with my mother about "that weird little girl..." *grins*

Nothing weird about that "little" girl, we tree-huggers come in all sizes. Christmas Tree Smilie
A fellow Norwegian! How nice! Smile Smilie Welcome! That makes you Norwegian number three (if I'm not mistaken).

I live on the west coast (sunnmring!) and we are not that bothered with snow. When it does snow it melts into slush and then into ice far to quickly. The ability to walk on ice without falling might be a better one for me. Wink Smilie
if I was to be any race it would have to be the hobbits. They are so laid back and just like to chill out in the sun. Soak up some rays have some mead and pipeweed, what more can u ask for and maybe going on a few adventures if it took their fancy Smoke Smilie
Darous: Welcome to our forum. Happy Elf Smilie Hope you enjoy your stay here.

Yes, living the life of a hobbit has its advantages over that of our hectic lives. Of course they don't have pizza, TV, computer games, and Planet-Tolkien.com, but some of the things at the first of that list we might be better off without. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Welcome to Planet Tolkien, Darous. Although we all dream of heroic adventures, at the end of the day most of us prefer dreaming about them rather than actually taking part in them. I think there's a bit of Hobbit in everyone who enjoys a putting their feet up in front of the fire after a good meal, and watching a bit of TV etc.

Maybe not Grondy, but I bet they'd have taken advantage of them if they had.
