fea [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes you are right. I read some more about it. (Am astounded how bad my memory is). Men cannot remain within the Halls of Mandos and leave the world so their fea would not be usable for Necromancy in Arda, unlike Elves who can refuse the summons and wander without hroa (body).

However I cannot figure out what Tolkien intended for Dwarves though, except for the 7 Fathers with the "rebirth" option for them. What about all other Dwarves? They don't seem to be subject to the influence of Morgoth in other ways so maybe in this way too they aren't subject to any Necromancy. Maybe the fea simply sleeps in the body, but not leaving Arda? In which case no chance for Necromancer influence if it just stays pu t(?) Or do they leave ?
Anyone know?

As a PS: PLEEEase, I second, no zombies.

...she took the point at once, but she also took the spoons.
