Okay, we start with our four Fellowship hobbits. Each one is put in charge of one of the White City's trebuchets with unlimited ammo and no training. They are set in front of a field full of 10,000 orcs. Who would manage to kill the most? Invisible extra credit if you tell us how things go. Cool

Oops, hobbity luck is going to decide this. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm thinking the competition would mostly be between Merry and Pippen. Frodo doesn't seem the competitive type and Sam would probably be distracted trying to help Frodo. And considering Pippen's tendency toward using rocks (e.g Moria) I would think that he has the slight advantage. At the same time Merry seems like someone who actually stop and find some directions first. (He did actually look at the maps in Rivendell.). In the end though I think Pippen (who was trying to hit a group of orc chieftains) accidentily takes out Sam's Trebuchet and then the rock bounces to the ground rolling over more than a thousand orcs in the process.
Pippen wins!

What happened when Legolas and Aragorn road with Eomer in the van.
Aragorn: Eomer, Legolas has his bow on my side of the seat!
Legolas: Well Aragorn keeps slapping me while practicing his "heroic" poses.
Eomer: Don't make me turn this van around.
