The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 205 - Breeding programmes

16th April 2015 (14:10)

Sauron's involvement in breeding orcs and werewolves is canon; his involvement in breeding big scaly lizard things that breathe fire is my extrapolation.

Also, in his earlier writing Tolkien described there being hordes of Balrogs - entire armies of them. Later on he wrote that pehaps it would be better if there were only a few, maybe seven or so.

Or maybe there were hundreds of lesser Balrogs, but only seven of them had wings? :)

Next time: Part 206: King of the world

Chibis by the website formerly known as 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.

After reading all these I will probably never be able to take Sauron seriously again, lol.

When he became the Dark Lord of Mordor Sauron had all these records of his early years confiscated and destroyed. :)
