"I have excluded the Werewolf Sauron as it's a Silmarillion character and (reluctantly)the Watcher of Cirith Ungol. I would love to include it but with current workload, it is very large and would have to be cast in many pieces.To do it justice the throne would also have to be made separately and itself probably cast in at least 2 pieces. Maybe we can include it at a later date." CHRIS TUBB.
Welcome back to the Fellowship March 2009 1st Round Vote. Just select your favourite idea and vote. One vote per member.
This is a blind vote so you will only see the current status of the vote AFTER you submit your vote so vote honestly. Remember you do not have to support your original idea if you prefer another.
This month has some stunning new suggestions.
The top 3 or 4 suggestions will be put into the 2nd round on the 26th of March. This vote ends at 16.00 GMT on the 25th (british time).
For now I've stuck with my own suggestion - Bob, his shovel and his cat - but at least half a dozen of the other suggestions appeal to me - Aragorn, Targon, the Black Numenorean. etc. In fact, I'd be quite happy with whatever wins this month!
"A worthy man, but his memory is like a lumber-room: thing wanted always buried."
I know this is pointless, that's why I'm going to say it. The Sauron in the Silmarillion is the same old Sauron from the Lord of The Rings. Sauron's transformation into a great wolf in the Silmarillion, though perhaps unutilized for ages, was the Dark Lord's inherit ability until the very end in the Return of The King. Of course, that's my opinion, and we all know what they say about opinions. Well, now that I've said that, I guess I'll vote for that horn-blowin' orc! Grrrrrrr!
On Sauron: afaik he lost the ability to change forms when he drowned at the demise of Numenor, so any "other" forms would predate that. I am not sure, however - it may be that he only lost his ability to assume friendly forms, like Annatar.
I would like to see Sam as a cook of fine rabbit with taters . . . Altough it´ll be the X`th mini of him . . . But I love Wendy´s idea. This cooking scenary is one of the scenes in the books that give you a glimpse of what and how Hobbits are: even if the world is falling apart one should have some good meal that reminds you of home, where you come from and for that you do your deeds! All the simple and good things on (Middle-) Earth.
I knew someone would come forward mein Bruder im Deutschland! Yes, that is debatable. In the ensuing downfall of Numenor, Sauron lost his mortal body and was no longer able to assume a "pleasing form". No where is it written, however, that Sauron lost his ability to shape-change into a wolf or bat. It's also written that in the 3rd Age Sauron took shape again and was referred to as the "Necromancer" or "Sorcerer" of Dol Guldur. To me, that implies a humanoid form. And still his power continued to grow, mesmerizing and manipulating tens of thousands of people, beasts, and monsters. So, it is likely (and still only my opinion) that Sauron's physical form was not limited to that of a large lid-less eye, floating atop a black tower. Instead, I believe that Sauron could ever shape-shift into a mighty and terrible Werewolf.
