Huh. So "Sindarin" really is a derivative of "Sinai"?

Well, the Sindar were the ones who never entered the Promised Land... but that's because they were, quote, Left Behind...

I'm really enjoying this. I'm picking up stuff that I have missed, or forgotten.

Thanks! Though I'm sure there are things I'm also missing or forgetting as I go along...

"Hey guys, look at that mountain over there. It looks kinda lonely. Hey, this wine is awesome."

Stop giving away the plot of the next comic! :) (Yes, I used that line about the lonely mountain almost word-for-word...)

So what's the story behind that circle in the middle of the journey?

It's not actually canon. I just thought it would be funny. :)

*ahem* I mean, Oromë left them for a while to attend to personal business, and some of the Elves decided to turn back, until Ingwë persuaded them to keep on going.

Yes, that's it. :)
