That probably would have been smart to start with. [In reply to] Can't Post

I have access to the public library as well as the university library. I'm pretty sure that I can include other sources that aren't books but that would be limited to article and journal kind of thing.

Also, looking at my original post I probably should have worded that as sources that aren't the Silmarillion, the trilogy, The lays of Beleriand, The Children of Hurin (which I'm still not sure if that's going to be helpful or not), and the hobbit. I also have The Magical Worlds of the Lord of the Rings.

I have a 10-12 page max so I'll probably research the spectrum of Elves, Men, Hobbits, Orcs and goblins, The Valar, and most likely a portion on Iluvatar (read: tiny intro portion probably). I had planned to just stick to just Tolkien and resource books, but if I can find some good sources for it I would include the film aspect as well.

I think that's about it. My teacher is a lotr fan so that makes this look like it will be more fun. XD
Questions, comments, help, and/or people telling me I need a life are all welcome. Smile
