Re: News from Bree and other random discussions

You know what I would really like? An edition of LOTR but published under the title "The Downfall of the Lord of the Rings and the Return of the King". Bonus points if it's issued in a beautiful red hardbook cover. I just read a Wikipedia article that lists the original titles that Tolkie...

Re: The Wheel of Time TV Series

I think I remember it being discussed around the boards, and the reaction was generally unenthusiastic, so I didn't bother.

Re: The Tolkien Translation Game!

Is the first sentence accurately translated as a statement that the addressee cares about himself? Or a command to take care of himself? Or something like "If you care about yourself..."?

Re: The Tolkien Translation Game!

This is a long shot, because that translation doesn't have the word "hobbit(s)" in it:
I will come with you. Farewell, my hobbits! May we meet again in my house!
