Khazad: What is a Dwarf?? tolkien and otherwise Can't Post

I have always wanted to start my own forum topic of ideas for Dwarves and fill it with insane ramblings and ideas (that need to escape from my mind). YESS! the voices are calling and YESS I have a love for things Dwarf.

I want to write for me, but that shouldn't stop Dwarf haters and lovers to post as well (I want to hear both bashing and excitement). I bring this discussion up from a discussion topic in the Barliman chat room about Dwarves versus Elves and wanted to expand the topic to Dwarves in general! [maybe somebody can take some of my insanity and run with it to a book, video-game, or movie].

Topics I've been thinking of: Dwarf Weaponry, Dwarf Armor, Engineering, Tools, Building, Construction styles, Dwarf Civilization, Dwarf Heroes, Dwarf Religion, Mounts and Beasts of Burden, Fighting styles, Growth Patterns, Apprenticeships, Tolkien Khazad versus other fiction, RUNES, Jewelcraft!!, Dwarf MAGIC, Dwarven magical items, Dwarf Trades, (etc.)

I also want to talk about differences between Dwarves and Elves a little bit more [Tolkien and in fantasy in general]. I have a couple of ideas that would flesh out the two races and make them more understandable to people.

Opinion: I really feel a lot of movies, artists, and comics don't really have a good idea of a Dwarf (Khazad). I always go back to Tolkien to find and understand their character, characterization, strengths, and flaws. While Tolkien had a fascination with Elves (Eldar), he had a certain fleshing out of a Dwarf race that was what I most envisioned. Hoorah! I have (maybe) a place where like minds can dispel (or even create) stereotypes, if needs be!

Peter Jackson, Phillipa Boyens, or Fran Walsh (or anyone else on the Hobbit production) NEED to come out to the Seattle Comicon, @ www.emeraldcitycomicon.com
