  • Aragorn is Christ and Gandalf is the Holy Spirit. Get it right, Shea!

    Forth, Eorlingas!

  • We’re Men of Rohan? I always wanted to be an Elf of Lothlorien. (Or are they angels?)

      Elves are pansies. Be a Dwarf!

      • Dwarves live in dark caves. Elves live in beautiful woodlands. Light triumphs over darkness; the choice is simple: be an elf.
