Another idea: Chapter/section exploration, or . . . Can't Post

When we run out of characters that have enough interest for people to discuss, what about favorite chapters or sections?

Or, areas/cities/civilizations like Gondor or Arnor or Eregion?

Let me know what you think, and I may post a Pollantir at some point.

That sounds great! [In reply to] Can't Post

Either locations or perhaps certain chapters or themes would be great to explore?

Locations would be what you mentioned but in relation to certain race?
like Eregion would be dwarves and elves in the past?

As for theme and chapter, we can explore theme of say bravery in Flight to the Ford and talk about the instances where we see the characters' bravery.

"By Elbereth and Luthien the fair, you shall have neither the Ring nor me!" ~Frodo

"And then Gandalf arose and bid all men rise, and they rose, and he said: 'Here is a last hail ere the feast endeth. Last but not least. For I name now those who shall not be forgotten and without whose valour nought else that was done would have availed; and I name before you all Frodo of the Shire and Samwise his servant. And the bards and the minstrels should give them new names: Bronwe athan Harthad and Harthad Uluithiad , Endurance beyond Hope and Hope Unquenchable.." ~Gandalf, The End of the Third Age , from The History of Middle Earth series

"He knew now why Beregond spoke his name with love. He was a captain that men would follow, that he would follow, even under the shadow of the black wings."- Siege of Gondor, RotK

Oh, very nice set of ideas! Thanks! [In reply to] Can't Post

Lots to explore.
I may do a Pollantir soon (remind me if I don't post something-or-other by next Tuesday . . .).

All of them at once! [In reply to] Can't Post

I really find all of your and Elentari's ideas great. Favorite scenes/chapters + key themes like bravery would provide much fodder for discussion.
