small quibble this morning [In reply to] Can't Post

It's probably the late coffee talking and the impatience with technology ...

But I wouldn't go so far as to say that Bard had the only kingly destiny or compare it too closely with the dwarven throne. That gets taken up by Dain, a very worthy ascension given his aid offered in a time of need at great risk to himself. Also, we have the classic Thranduil who I think maintains his stature as a voice of peace but also one who is willing to make moves to get what he wants (just maybe not at any cost like Thorin - a very rare intensity of passion that is almost required for the success of the quest for the Lonely Mountain - I guess leaders like Thorin with their uncompromising passion are good for the startup but not so much the end-game positioning).

                        But surely Bard wasn't motivated by greed alone SirDennisC Send a private message to SirDennisC Oct 23 2012, 4:16pm
