Thorin Oakenshield vs Gimli son of Gloin Can't Post

Hmm, tough one....I may have to give the edge to Gimli due to his known experience in war.

That all depends on the manner [In reply to] Can't Post

of their fighting.Wink

If it's words: Thorin
If it's battle: Gimli
If it's drinking: Gimli
If it's humor: TieCool

It's Latin. Loosely translated, it means... we cheat.

"Strange treasures in this fair world appear, strange all, and new to me." That is a poem by Thomas Traherne and I have absolutely no idea what it's about. But, when I was small I was made to learn it by heart so I don't see why you shouldn't suffer too.

Gimli Son Of Glion! [In reply to] Can't Post

He isn't prideful like Thorin. Tongue

If our honorable friend continues to scrape the bottom of the barrel for objections he is in danger of getting splinters under his nails.

Thorin, no question about it whatsoever [In reply to] Can't Post

Thorin Oakenshield - King Under the Mountain would easily take down Gimli.



The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.

Gimli [In reply to] Can't Post

Gimli is younger and faster, though Thorin does have a rather special sword. It would depend on what weapons they use, but I'd honestly go with Gimli. Thorin's just a little too old.
