they're all really cool [In reply to] Can't Post

they're all really cool, problem is Tolkien himself focused so much on the Elves that even Hobbits and Dwarves were something of an afterthought and don't have as clearly worked out a backstory.

I like the Dwarves most, because (probably The Hobbit intro I guess) they actually fight (unlike Hobbits), are really technically skilled, hold a strong grudge and have quick tempers but are undying loyal to their friends.

Rohirrim, definitely [In reply to] Can't Post

I have no clue why, but I've always loved them. Possibly because I'm fascinated by anything Celtic...

but i thought [In reply to] Can't Post

JRRT based the Rohirrim (linguistically at least) on Anglo-Saxon, and the film version of Edoras looks that way too

Elvish [In reply to] Can't Post

for me all the way....Always just have a sense of orderliness, cleanliness, wisdom and elegant beauty when I think of the Elves. Also the sense of things slowing down and being able to capture each moment, seeing the forest from the trees so to speak. The magical quality of seeing everything as you did the 1st time, and it never becoming dull; a childlike wonder of all things new. That's what I think of when I think of Elves.
