I always wonder about the arkenstone. [In reply to] Can't Post

What if Smaug had been more humble and actually aware of his own weakness? He could have grabbed that Arkenstone and but it in his sensitive chink-in-the-armor or even covered up with hands or any piece of armor around the place (mithril no less ... ).

Would the elves and men have been able to make the same claims of needing reparations if the dragon had never burned the mannish town down and just made off with whatever treasure he could get his hands on?

So much depended on that dragon misbehaving foolishly in specific ways ... this whole chapter for example.
