            there were plenty of human allies with Sauron. Plus, remember Sauron interned under Aule, the sort-of archangel of smithing, plus many of Sauron's servants were Black Numenoreans who were pretty smart.

            penus is a very useful appendage for creatures of evil and malice. Not having one would be very limiting.

              I really don't get the fanboy obsession with Tom Bombadil. He's a character that only appeals to the losers who say shit like "Oh I'm actually really smart, I just didn't apply myself in school". Cutting him out of the movies was absolutely the correct decision and I will not pretend otherwise.

                It's just that the fellowship of the ring is a constant slide from fairytale fantasy towards darker fantasy.
                Tom is just a part of that whimsical fairytale part of the early book, who then gets contrasted by and replaced by some horrors like the ringwraiths, the watcher in the dark and balrog.

Sure their battle is beneath you, and you're so powerful compared to the ants that it's incomprehensible. That doesn't change the fact that you did befriend those ants, and if they were able to communicate with you their issues, you'd take the 30 seconds to just go over and stomp their enemies and lazer a few with a magnifying glass.

                You're applying a false analogy, Bombadil never had the power to destroy the ring (making it "disappear" is just a parlor trick, it wasn't actually destroyed) nor does he have the power to crush Sauron's armies like a vengeful God from on-high. I think you're simply misunderstanding the nature of the character. Yes, he's a flighty nature spirit who doesn't care about mortal affairs. No, he doesn't have the power to simply snap his fingers and defeat Sauron.

                No, he's a different category of mythological being. He can't exercise power over others and in consequence they can't exercise power over him. He's a prelapsarian nature spirit, basically the innocent pagan version of what Shelob is on the Lovecratian spectrum, he represents the inconsistencies every realistic mythology inherits from the previous ones.

                He's like an even more powerful Fangorn. Doesn't give a shit, so he could easily lose the Ring eventually. As I understand it, Tolkien wrote him to represent well-meaning pacifists. The "good men who do nothing", so to speak.

                That's not what the book said. It more or less said he could keep the ring but that would still be only a temporary solution, because the ring would still exist and Sauron's power would continue to grow. Nowhere was it suggested that he had the power to destroy it.

        He did in the book, and it never said he didnt in the movie.

        The problem is that Rohan horses which can ride "Three days gallop" without stopping (which would kill any real horse 100 times over) could easily overtake any scouts you had, meaning they'd arrive before your messengers even if they didn't kill them.

        >Larger catapults,
        In the book, their siege weapons were largely ineffective, and there is a critical size past which any seige engine cannot be scaled upwards with the same materials.

        In the film, the catapults were something like 200 times more powerful than any catapult ever built.

        >siegeladders, armored siegetowers
        He didn't run out of either of these, and if he doesnt want his seige towers moving at a snails pace compared to their already slow pace, he's limited in their number by the number of magical beasts he has, he cant print off more trolls like in an RTS.
        They would have never punched through the gate or outer wall, and never would have been able to deploy their greatest advantage in an open melee, the trolls. They would have bogged down on the first level for days, giving extra time for reinforcements not only from Rohan but everywhere else. Gondor is a Kingdom, not a city.

        In the book he did have a force to block reinforcements from Rohan. Sauron was not stupid in a strategic or tactical sense. He was only stupid in that he saw things only through the lens of power and the desire for it. This made him a great statesman, but with a very narrow and cynical view of the world. As a general he was clever and thought ahead. Easterlings to besiege Erebor and destroy Dale. Orcs from Dol Guldur to keep Lothlorien in check. Saruman to tie up the Rohirrim (and Sauron saw through Saruman's bullshit immediately because in him he had a kindred spirit). That left Gondor isolated while he mind-raped their ruler through the Palantir. Even had the one ring been dropped into the ocean, he still would have won through sheer military might.

        As a politician, he was highly capable, and he was somewhat vindicated in his disbelief that anyone could actually destroy the ring willfully when Frodo succumbed to its temptation. It was the mode in which Sauron thrived (violence, greed and deceit) that led to the ring's destruction, not selfless altruism. And that is just how Tolkien saw evil, that of being wasteful and self-destructive, out of which greater goods can be acquired.

          This is what people tend to forget, I think the movies didn't harp on it enough. Sauron was gonna win a conventional war, destroying the Ring before that happens was the only hail-mary play they had left

          Wasn't it implied that he would eventually win if the ring wasn't destroyed, as he could just send endless meat waves at his enemies, even after losing major battles? I mean, a major theme in the books is that it's not just the heroes and that great battles that decide the fate of the world, but also the actions of the small and seemingly insignificant, which in LOTR is represented by the hobbits and Gollum.

            Yeah in the books or was said that he was about to simply roll over the West with military force. All of the armies and forces seen in the three books were only a fraction of the might Sauron had amassed behind the black gate and was about to unleash.

            Sauron did not originally plan to attack Minas Tirith when he did. He was quite content to wait and continue massing his forces, knowing that with time his enemies declined and his forces grew more powerful and numerous. That changed when Aragorn challenged him through the Palantir (which happens before he takes the Paths of the Dead in the books). Sauron mistakenly believes that Aragorn has come into position of the ring. Since he is the heir of Elendil, and has a powerful enough will to best Sauron's control over the Palantir, he grows very concerned that Aragorn has the ability to master the ring (given enough time). He also believes that his enemy is underestimating him, since Aragorn reveals himself before mastering the ring. So he moves the timetable forward with the dual aim of reclaiming the ring for himself and defeating Gondor before its king can turn Sauron's ultimate weapon against him. The same thing happens again after Pelennor Fields. When the forces of the West march on the Black Gate, Sauron thinks they have completely underestimated him (thinking they've spent all his forces), and thus happily accepts battle rather than simply wait them out.
            Long story short, Sauron the great deceiver is defeated by deception (that, humility, the perseverance of two Hobbits, and an act of God).

          He really wasn't though, because despite all the forces the two hobbits had to sneak through to get there, the actual access point to Mt. Doom had zero guard presence. In what fricking universe would anyone with the tiniest modicum of common sense not have a fortified garrison of hundreds of orcs directly on top of every single opening that led to the mountain's interior? He also had access to a fairly robust industrial base and could have, I don't know, built a fricking giant steel door over the fricking top of the lava. Even if he didn't know the ring's exact location, why the FRICK was it even possible for anyone to gain access to the place it could be destroyed? That whole area for miles in every direction should have been under 24/7 surveillance, it shouldn't have even been possible to sneak through.

            I think that just proves the anon's point about Evil being high on its own supply of arrogance and deception. Sauron couldn't imagine that they'd undertake some mission to destroy the ring, rather, they'd claim it for themselves to fight Sauron

        They came out of a forest that was infested by tribals that killed intruders on sight. His forces were more spread out than the films would indicate also meaning they could isolate large groups.

        Are you people moronic? Did you people think Grond was a wasteful ego project or something? The Great Gate of Minas Tirith were made from some ancient lost super engineering art and guarded an archway which no enemy had ever passed. It was a HARD defensive point. Grond was needed to do the job. Even with the Witch-King providing magic buffs it took 4 strokes to do it; a common siege engine probably would have been useless.

        Minas Tiriths gates weren't magic, they were steel and wood. They were in fact made stronger after the war using Mithril. The walls were magic of the early age though, making the gate the weakness.

      The contrarian part of me wonders why Sauron didn't just have Sauronman make him a few more of those frickhuge bombs used at Helm's Deep, but I guess Sauronman probably kept his trade secrets close.

        Nothing in the movie suggests it isnt as strong as in the book. The orcs have been hammering it with a conventional ram for so long there's a growing pile of their bodies on the ground and they haven't made a single scratch in it.

        In the book, the walls and towers of Gondor were made by ancient Numenoreans, which means they were practically invulnerable. The walls and towers in the book didn't just collapse like legos when hit, like in the movies, they stood strong. In fact, the orc's were actually smart and their strategy was to make really huge trebuchets that outranged Minis Tirith's tower defenses, and they perlted inside the city with fire bombs that set fire to the lower levels.
        Also, I think Sauron already distrusted Saruman's true intentions and he turned out to be right.

        They "breed in the manner of men" according to tolkien. Being an anglo he could barely bring himself to talk about sex at the best of times. We're lucky he was Catholic, otherwise there would have been no women in the entire series and new men would have just sprung out of holes in the ground.

        In the films, we see Uruk Hai emerging from pits in the ground full grown, but they're stated to be the children of Orcs and Men. The idea the filmmakers had was that Saruman rapidly grew them by placing them as newborns into a kind of magical earth-womb.

            Rape

            In both the films and the books, the implication is that Saruman's human forces (The Dundelings of Dunland and the Hillmen of Rhudaur) are their "willing" parents, whether through their own degeneracy or Saruman's magical domination. Remember that when Tolkien says "men" he means "Human". He never refers to male orcs or dwarves or whatever as "Men"

            "But these creatures of Isengard, these half-orcs and goblin-men that the foul craft of Saruman has bred, they will not quail at the sun."
            From Gamling

            "It became clear in time that undoubted Men could under the domination of Morgoth or his agents in a few generations be reduced almost to the Orc-level of mind and habits; and then they would or could be made to mate with Orcs, producing new breeds, often larger and more cunning. There is no doubt that long afterwards, in the Third Age, Saruman rediscovered this, or learned of it in lore, and in his lust for mastery committed this, his wickedest deed: the interbreeding of Orcs and Men, producing both Men-orcs large and cunning, and Orc-men treacherous and vile."

      Tolkien actually wrote down that if elves were about to be raped they would immediately choose to die from the sheer trauma (elven souls can seemingly leave their bodies if they deem corporeal life to be too burdensome, although they will eventually be re-embodied).

          Tolkien orcs are Mongols and Turks

          Tolkien famously hated allegory so no, he wouldn't make them look like any irl races
          Also, this is something the Poles should know because they shit up every Youtube video of the Pelennor fields and Helms Deep battle with how Tolkien wrote the Rohirrim's charge after the charge of the Winged Hussars in Vienna.

            >Tolkien famously hated allegory
            The full quote is a little more nuanced than that:
            >"I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence. I much prefer history – true or feigned– with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of readers. I think that many confuse applicability with allegory, but the one resides in the freedom of the reader, and the other in the purposed domination of the author."

            It's a very fine distinction, arguably not even very distinct. Tolkien is basically saying "you can read it that way if you like or you can read it another way, it's up to you". That doesn't mean there ISN'T an allegorical parallel, Tolkien just fancies that the way he writes it, it can be applied to more than one relationship.

            Tolkien was no fool, no post modernist, no atheist. He understood that everything had a pattern, that there were going to be echoes of real peoples, real battles, real events, in anything he wrote, and he didn't arrogantly steer away from it, he just accepted it with humility and did not believe it should ever be a goal.

            If you write about a foul, corrupted, degenerated race, you're going to see reflections, to various degrees, of every real people who have been made ugly in form and spirit.
            If you write about sieges and victories and rescues and you're not an idiot, you're going to retread the past even if you DON'T know that's what you're doing.

        Tolkien orcs are Mongols and Turks

        >t. someone who reads

        Tolkien Orcs are Germans. They rape the German way.

        In Tolkien's writing, Orcs are called "clever" craftsmen despite the crude and rough appearance of their gear. They are markedly weaker than ordinary humans, and shorter, basically splitting the difference between hobbit and man. The Uruk Hai, a huge improvement over regular orcs, were still smaller than the average human soldier.

        In the films, Orcs are roughly the size of men, and appear to be similar strength on average, with some stronger, some weaker. Uruk hai are larger, and stronger than the average man.

        Tolkien himself said Orcs were something like asiatic people but made horrifically ugly, so he couldn't have had the lowest opinion of Asiatics if he thought they had to be made *worse* to be an orc.

      Sauron's Tax Policy is actually very progressive. He just glares at you and you willingly give him all of your money and resources to make him stop.

      ...These donations are then tax-deductible until next he feels like glaring at you.

    nta, but Numenoreans were supposed to give up their kingship while they were old but still sound of mind/body and rather than letting themselves become "unmanned" with age, they would settle their affairs and willingly let themselves die. That stopped with Sauron's arrival, and ties in to the whole "restoring the holy lineage and customs to regenerate the people" bit Aragorn was doing.

    It's in the Tale of Aragorn and Arwen in the appendices chapters of the ROTK, nobooks. He literally wills his body to die after giving the crown to his son, because without the will to accept death he will continue to linger on. Arwen goes on a grief-tour of the empty elven lands and then does the same.

    Re: orcs and rape and elves in particular, Tolkien flip flopped on the subject in his notes and letters. Broadly he accepted that orcs probably had to breed conventionally (consensually or not), but didn't know how to fix that with his elven structure and toyed with the idea of elves dying if violated instantaneously (an idea revisited in an abandoned version of the Silmarillion where Morgoth tries to rape the Valar of the sun and her spirit departs in rage and leaves only her corpse as a burning but empty star). But as the other anon above said, Tolkien strongly implies that Elrond's wife was raped by orcs, thus her leaving for Amman for healing and her sons' serial killer tier hateboner for goblinkind

      I'm not saying you're required to enjoy it, I'm a contrarian myself but you really can't even understand why people like it? People credit Tolkien with redefining high fantasy single-handedly and if you don't understand why they say that look at the depth of his universe compared to the high fantasy/epic fantasy that came before him.

    I so wish we got to see what went on inside Barad-dur, its many courts and halls. Where Sauron would be holding councils with allied nations’ leaders and commanders, his general staff and lieutenants handling business, etc. I wonder if Sauron personally held court like Melkor had done, or if he was usually hanging around his pinnacle suites doing sorcery, far-sight, etc and let his staff handle everything else? Personally I think he would take after Melkor, especially if was starting to claim he was Melkor himself lol.

    Also, let us look inside Minas Morgul ffs. Could Men even live in there or was it only orcs besides ghosts and whatever weird shit the Witch-King ruled over. Even after the fall of Sauron the place was ordered sealed so I bet there was some pretty heinous shit hanging around in there.

    Man you people…where was it said that Bombadill was all-powerful? The Ring simply held no sway over him due to fundamental differences in his makeup vs Sauron’s. He held sway over a small realm, but it was directly stated that he would, eventually, fall to Sauron. Fall last as he is the first — but fall all the same. He didn’t have the strength to hold off Sauron forever, period.

    Now, about Shelob. Where, exactly, did she COME from? Was she a distortion introduced into Arda by Melkor’s discordant notes? Another Maiar who went under the others’ radars? A being Melkor met in the void spaces and who smuggled her in?

      She was a daughter of Ungoliant, who was basically Tolkien’s Cthulhu. An evil spirit that came from outside of the world and was so powerful that she almost killed Satan!Morgoth himself when he double crossed her.

    i'm not sure that building huge wooden siege towers was such a good idea when he had air superiority with the fellbeasts and could have just flattened all of his enemies using a ready supply of mined rocks.

      The siege towers in the movie looked really impractical. They'd get stuck in the dirt really easily.

      How did a few Gondorians mog these guys but 8000 Rohirrim got rekt instantly?

      You'd think the Rohirrim would instantly switch to horse archery and pelt them from afar since their horses are faster.

      Charging the elephants was also dumb. Maybe Theoden thought they would get spooked, but even then, they'd be so dangerous to be around. Much better to just shoot them from afar.

      He got rekt at Halms Deep then was stuck in his tower before the could share the tech with his boss. Plus he wanted to overthrow Sauron anyway so there was no point in helping him.
