“The only hope you have is to accept the fact that you’re already dead. The sooner you accept that, the sooner you’ll be able to function as a soldier is supposed to function … all war depends upon it.”

Band of Brothers.

You just quoted it as Band of Brothers, that's why I specified it. Speirs was a total badass, though kind of an asshole.

so was Sauron killed in the old war or was that the witch king too?

That was Sauron, his physcial body was destroyed but because hes a Maia he has a really strong sort of "spirit", and enough of him lived on in the Ring that he was able to rebuild himself

**kwanzalord used "*roll picture*"**
**kwanzalord rolled image**So why didn't Sauron fight in the war. If he's a Maia wouldn't he have been able to turn the tide?

If Sauron was a fresh young Maia out of Valinor then yes he could have likely done so. The thing is that the Valar/Maiar kind of run on batteries and to recharge you need to go to the head god Eru and with Sauron being evil, he wasnt getting any favors from Eru. So Sauron poured all of his power into other things being able to fight for him and changing the earth. The Ring is a big example of this, a lot of his power went into it, also controlling Nazgul and hundreds of thousands of orcs, all that evil stuff wears on you. And even when Sauron HAD the Ring he was killed in combat so now that he doesnt even have it, its doubtful how strong he would have been.

"powerful kong" lol jk

so who gets killed by the girl at the end of the 3rd movie? the witch king?

Eowyn kills the Witch King by stabbing him in the face yes. Sauron is represented by the Eye in the movies vut in the books he does have a body its just that he never leaves the tower he is in so peter jackson needed a way to show sauron. Characters always referenced Saurons burning eye and that was his symbol in the books so jackson went with a giant eye

First i'd like to say i love your comps and please don't stop.

Second, lotr.wikia.com/wiki/LOTR:Canon
For the purposes of this wiki, canon will be defined as anything pertaining to Middle-earth that was written by J.R.R. Tolkien or developed under license from Tolkien Enterprises. Although elements of the latter will be regarded as non-canon relative to Tolkien's works, they are both officially approved by his estate and internally consistent with themselves and any other directly related works. For example, the three films comprising the Jackson trilogy are internally consistent with each other and licensed by Tolkien Enterprises, so they may be included if the information from these films is clearly indicated to be derived from Jackson's work as opposed to Tolkien's work by being placed under Portrayal in adaptations. Should some element of an adaptation be unique to that adaptation or not found in Tolkien, it is still permitted, but must clearly be categorised as non-canon.

tolkiengateway.net/wiki/The_Silmarillion

I realize that is a LOT of reading but if you are looking for an indexed source of information those 2 can tell you anything on the subject that is known. If there is any conflict in these i would use the Silmarillion but you have to understand much of what is considered canon comes from materials that were put together after JRR died like letters, notes and unfinished books. He even said himself there were things that were left intentionally vague.

People sent to kill the wights with specialized swords who died in the barrows and their treasure and bodies stayed there cursed by the wights. Also the info from the wiki is from the silmarillion which confirms almost all of it. Some of it is supposition but the majority is published fact.

I do not recall this info from the Sil, and i do not believe the sil makes any reference to ages past the first in the main text. Do you have any quotes or references to where the Sil mentions these things for me?
