Scale & Size? Can't Post

Sotra 2 Thread ideas intertwined together...

One of Most endearing Aspects of Tolkien's writing
the SCALE of the entire World of his MiddleEarth
What its 1,000s of miles in SIZE
The depth of its History SCALEd in timelines of
100's or 1,000 years.
"For 3,00 years...I've.. (Elrond)
soo. you as reader are somewhat
overwelmed by that, no matter how old you were when you first read any of it.

SIZE..okay Hobbits are Half the size of people.(Halflings)
Dwarves are somewhat taller. (Still just approaching 5 foot tall)
Men are about 6 foot..
Then Elves are usually even Taller?

So to think that in these three Movies,
PJ is forced to SCALE up the SIZE
of any conflict.

AUJ was pretty small in Comparsion to FOTR
(Except for GoblinTown)

sooo. DoS will have to Scale up the Size
of distances covered, more intense conflicts,etc.
Leaving TABA's BoT5A or par with Pellenor Fields?

The time it takes to conclusion?
Will probably wear us out (In a good way)

Bomby is convinced
PJ & Howard Shore won't let us down.

(these are exciting times are they NOT!!

Bomby believes in good Dreams.
