I just watched several Tolkien documentaries earlier today! Smiley Wizard Equip - 006

I love the picture. I am just missing the head of the monster...

Tolkien never really says. He describes it as both fire and flame. "like a great shadow, in the middle of which was a dark form, of man-shape maybe, yet greater".

Moria... You fear to go into those mines. The Dwarves delved too greedily and too deep. You know what they awoke in the darkness of Khazad-dum... shadow and flame.

I LOVE that Moria segment. Especially when they enter the chamber of Mazarbul and Gandalf starts reading the book.

This foe is beyond any of you... RUN.

"I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn.


You shall not pass. "


Great image of this epic scene.

I wondered how long it would take before seeing a "You shall not pass" comment.

Now I wonder how many there will be. xD

Do you want to say that I am not genuinely creative and unique.


You may be right.

No, just surprised it took... according to the time I commented, seven hours before the comment was made. No offense meant friend,
