Hullo Tolkien chat fans! I hope that December stretch didn’t leave you wanting too much for The Hall of Fire, but the good news is… we’re baaaaack!
Our next topic:
The Physical Ability of Men and Elves
It seems that even before Humans walked Middle-earth, they were in competition with the elder race of Elves. How do The Firstborn and aftercommers stack up when compared to one another in physical ability? Can a Man equal an Elf in stature and strength? How about fighting ability and dexterity?
Bring your thoughts on down to The Hall of Fire at any one of these times:

Due to the holiday weekends we’ve postponed our twice monthly Tolkien discussion at The Hall of Fire. However, if you’d like to read logs from past chats, check them out at the above HoF link, where you can also find times for the chats. Our next topic will compare and contrast the physical ability of Elves and Men: can a Man be as powerful a warrior as an Elf?
