My issue isn't with what is almost certainly a touch of confusion for the reviewer [In reply to] Can't Post

it is the way he describes the confrontation of dwarves and "trolls" orcs. It sounds like the Dwarves loosing a battle that they won. Which is a big damned bit of revision if true.

On balance it seems more likely that the author believes himself to be discussing a single thing I.e. has rolled up Dale, Erebor and Moria into one.


That's what I thought too. If the two setpieces occur adjacent to each other, it wouldn't be surprising if some reviewers unfamiliar with the source material failed to realize they were seeing two completely separate events.

Even accounting for the team's penchant for geographic compression, Moria and Erebor are still two different places.
