Which of these loathsome men would win...Bill Ferney spills ale all over Wormtongue in a Saruman run former "Prancing Pony"...renamed "The White Hand Barracks and Dungeon - your pain is our pleasure"

Ferny [In reply to] Can't Post

Ferny throws curse words and slanders learned in Bree (and thrown at random Rangers), and Grima, used to the proper etiquette of Meduseld, simply can't take it and cowers before the might of his tongue.

... though if apples were involved, that's a whole different issue.

Me, I'm gonna go with... [In reply to] Can't Post

...Wormtongue. He showed good service to Rohan at some time in his life, so you would expect he was trained as a knight in some way and has maybe a smidgen of fighting skills.

Middle-Earth stands on the brink of destruction.

I'd go with Grima. [In reply to] Can't Post

He has the added help of an additional face. (He's got to be the most two-faced villain in the story.)

For Gondor!

Edge - Wormtongue [In reply to] Can't Post

I think Wormtongue would feign backing down and then slip a blade in Ferney's back ..ala Saruman or slit his throat. Ferney is less sophisticated....whereas Grimma can present whatever face is required for the situation.

A Crown wager on Grimma Wormtongue.

My thought exactly! [In reply to] Can't Post

Grima pretends to be frightened by Ferney, then stabs him in the back when he's stumbling home drunk at the end of the night.

With caffeine, all things are possible.

The pity of Bilbo will screw up the fate of many.
