Thanks Daniel! [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, I found it a little humorous that they would write that. [In reply to] Can't Post

On another note, Arkenstone confirmed?

Will the flashback to the Dwarven-Goblin war be during the Goblin Town adventure? [In reply to] Can't Post

If Thorin's history in the war is connected to his treatment in the hands of the Great Goblin, that could indeed be a good place for that flashback sequence. Dwarves and Bilbo could be spending some time together while prisoners, and some of the Dwarves, such as Balin or Dwalin, could explain the old hostility to Bilbo. Or just a good old honest flashback to some of their memories.

Also, thanks for the link!

I run a Richard Armitage website Wink

There's not much new in the annual to be honest, it's a puzzle book for children essentially.

So this is the actual Thorin look we're getting [In reply to] Can't Post

It seems they originally had Richard with a fake beard, crazy forehead piece and different nose to what we're seeing in these pics. I'm glad they changed it cause he just looked weird before.

DanielLB strike again! [In reply to] Can't Post

I thought i'd seen all of those pics, and then I saw the Thorin page and the pic with Dwalin and Balin w/Bilbo in the back. Nice shot!
And, I hadn't seen the shot of Thorin with his original sword . . . I LIKE that sword, and it looks right on Thorin's hip.
. . . don't get me wrong, I love the Orcrist sword . . . but, I love it as a beautiful sword, a piece of crafted art . . . however . . . honestly, that sword IS NOT Orcrist . . .

There's just something wrong with Thorin having 'come hither' eyes! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm still not quite used to the idea of 'hot Dwarves'.

Dwarves have been hot since the First Age! [In reply to] Can't Post

Only fans made them look ugly. To me, they've ever only been rugged... and hairy... which doesn't need to be bad. But no Michelin Men. Sly

Richard doesn't have an official site [In reply to] Can't Post

He has a few 'unofficial' ones but no official site. I honestly didn't notice you'd written 'his' website, I was just saying 'that's my site' Smile

Other snippets? There are brief character descriptions for each dwarf (2 per page) and a double-page spread for Bilbo, Thorin and for Gandalf, single pages for Elrond, Gollum and Thranduil.
A few choice lines:
Fili - a skilled fighter... Fili has never travelled far in the world
Kili - ...usually acts before he thinks. Courageous and brave, Kili aims to make a name for himself...an expert with a bow.
Balin - wise and gentle at heart...Uncertain of the wisdom of even starting out on such a dangerous path, Balin is not sure any of them will return alive.
Dwalin - never afraid to say what is on his mind, no matter what people might think...famous warrior.
Oin - Oin has spent a large sum of money to pay for Thorin's quest
Gloin - a temper almost as large as his strength and bravery...one of the only dwarves who is married
Bofur - always willing to see the best in whatever life brings his way
Bombur - chief cook...quite a fighter
Dori - strongest of all the Dwarves...never looks on the bright side
Nori - always up to something...expert at picking locks
Ori - a brilliant artist...a surprising amount of courage and determination
Bifur - unable to talk, Bifur grunts and uses hand signals to communicate


Most pages have quizzes, puzzles and games for children.

Descriptions [In reply to] Can't Post

All of these descriptions sound much like the English translations of the German descriptions. Bodes well for the rest being accurate.

What did Oin have to pay for? Food? Horses? Armour?

Perhaps being a herbalist is more profitable than being a blacksmith

Not good. We need a better picture of him. [In reply to] Can't Post

I definitely do not like the one we have now, probably partly due to it's low quality. I guess we'll have to wait for the trailer (if he's even in it).
