Morgoth did have limited orbital capacities [In reply to] Can't Post

We know Morgoth attacked Tilion, a.k.a. the Moon, in his orbit by sending "spirits of shadow" against him (Silmarillion, Of the Sun and Moon). Tilion fended them off, though. So Morgoth did have at least limited capacities for an orbital strike, though not very formidable ones if a single Maia gave them the boot. I doubt these spirits wold have been terribly effective against interstellar battlecruisers.

So a win for the Empire, but they would have at least to do some work up there before being able to melt Thangorodrim with da laz0rs.

        So when the screams and the blood and the horror of battle take him, he would not stand and fight. He would flee, and he would be right to do so. Istaris'staffs Send a private message to Istaris'staffs Aug 17 2012, 6:22pm

            Ha, that's kind of like saying, "Why didn't Frodo just ride an eagle over the crack of doom?" I guess I'm assuming only ground forces here. Istaris'staffs Send a private message to Istaris'staffs Aug 20 2012, 10:03pm
