The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 9: War! What is it good for?

18th February 2013 (12:12)

I'm actually managing to keep to a regular posting schedule for these, and I did a couple more yesterday so I've some in the bank for the foreseeable future. Wonders never cease.

On the 'Buffy' reviews front, I didn't get into town for a long time recently (still convalescing) but I have finally got to the comics shop and acquired about a month's supply of Season 9 comics, so hopefully there'll be reviews of them at some point.

In this episode - how do you fight a war when everybody's immortal?

Word List: Eru = God (literally, "The One")

Part 9: War! What is it good for?

Next time: Part 10: Victory in Arda

Chibis by tektek.org
Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series. Apologies to any Australians reading this! The "Elf" and "Human" chibis are ones I designed for Beren and Lúthien, so you'll see them again later.
Questions and comments welcome!

Parsley good
Weed bad

No wonder metal fans are so fascinated with Sauron.

That's actually Giant Hogweed that Melkor's growing there (Heracleum mantegazzianum), though Wikipedia tells me it's sometimes called "giant cow parsley", so perhaps that's what you meant?

Ah, I figured the parsley bit was the "life" that whatsherfrigg planted, and Melkor added the (presumably undead) spider.

I have to say that as supremely evil deeds go, inventing garnish isn't the vilest one.
