Olórin versus Nyarlathotep Can't Post

Who wins?

"The Crack of Doom is a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port. The shaft leads directly to the reactor system. A precise hit will start a chain reaction which should destroy Barad-dűr."
-The Briefing of Elrond

Maia versus the Messenger of the Outer Gods [In reply to] Can't Post

This one's tricky! Olórin is described as the wisest of the Maiar; Nyarlathotep is cunning and quite crafty--perhaps the nearest thing in the Cthulhu Mythos to Sauron. This might be too close to call with both of them scoring points off each other throughout the ages.

Alas, poor Olórin! I knew him Darkstone, a fellow of infinite vision, of most excellent wit. [In reply to] Can't Post

To sleep, perchance to dream … Unsure

‘. . . the rule of no realm is mine . . .
But all worthy things that are in peril . . . those are my care.
For I also am a steward. Did you not know?'

Gandalf to Denethor
