    Seems to me there are only two possible reasons to merge worlds:

    (1) Game Company benefit -- lower operating costs by requiring fewer machines to run to handle the population.

    (2) Player...

    No, Kobe, that's not true. I mean, it is true that the wolves were invested with evil spirits. But it's not true that they do not change shape. At least, it's not necessarily true. See, there...

    Quite simply not worth my time. Many people and creatures have shape-shifted in Tolkien's works, including werewolves. If one or two Beornings become heroes, no problem.

    Perhaps you aren't aware that werewolf comes from old English, and literally means man-wolf. Tolkien was certainly aware of it. We can forgive him for being so smart on the topic; it was kind of...

    Now you are grasping at straws. Many who read LOTR also read The Hobbit (and vice-versa). Including a couple of references back to the Beornings is explicitly nodding the head to those readers of...

    Your English is very good, TT! And you're right, "a bit" could be interpreted fairly loosely. In fact, saying "quite a bit" really does mean a lot. Thanks for clarifying that people won't have too...
