    Is that a bow and arrow, or a mini-gun?

    10,000 BALROGS?! C’mon! One is bad enough!

    Certainly Tolkien would never have played “Monty Haul” D&D, which is what these guys are playing. He would have preferred something that offered a challenge.

    If he were alive today, he might play something like World of Warcraft until he got bored with it. But he would be frustrated at the lack of depth in the languages spoken by the various races.

    If Tolkien played RP fantasy games today, players would have to speak in the native language of their race.

    Clearly Bill Amend never played D&D either.

    @Dr Dave

    Gygax and Arnson might disagree with you, except both are dead. RIP to the creators of Roleplaying Games.

    Vedui!
    I have a friend who speaks Elvish very well. She often spoke such in our DDO games.

    Seen those before. Wonder how you could fire one off without killing yourself.

    Gygax always swore up and down and left and right that D&D wasn’t based primarily on Tolkien. Trouble is, I can’t find anything that comes close to hobbits/halflings in any pre-1970s literature.

    It would have been an interesting exercise to go back in time and ask the Grand Old Man himself what he thought of the idea of a roe playing game. Once the basics were told him, how would J.R.R.Tolkien would have had to say about the concept. Maybe he would have ideas to improve it.

    My hero Detritus the Troll (Discworld) fires a multi-arrow siege crossbow called the “Piecemaker.” I think it would do the job!

    Nope—I grew up devouring Norse alongside Greek and Roman, and there’s nothing like a hobbit in it.
