True... [In reply to] Can't Post

Durin's Bane wasn't mentioned at all in the Book of Mazarbul, apparently it was mostly orcs who had slain Balin and his colony. It would have been much scarier had Tolkien written in the Balrog as the destroyer of the failed colony, instead of orcs.

As for the Battle of Azanulbizar, the Balrog probably could have wiped out the remainder of the dwarven army, who were left reeling after the war with the orcs. But instead he chose to avoid the battle, and just sat inside and looked scary. Yeah, you're right - Durin's Bane seems to have been very lackadaisical at times.

    Don't forget Ugluk. Perhaps of the orc who are named and encountered, but certainly they would not AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Aug 22 2013, 4:08am
