    Delousing powder. Goodness knows my elves are apparently infested with them, as often as they're scratching themselves as they stand around waiting.

    A cellphone so he wouldn't have to ride back and forth just to "speak to" so and so.

    As someone who had to heal many people after the Pelennor Fields, I could see Aragorn wanting modern medicine to help save and recover as many people as possible, as fast as possible. Even the Black Breath is nothing compared to disinfectant.

    As for my own personal character, I roleplay my hobbit, Clarance Tarrins, as someone haunted. As a participant in the Siege of Gondamon, he suffers from guilt, PTSD, and being kicked out of his family when he finally managed to return home. Though his situation improves thanks to an interest in studying the history of the Elves, he's never going to completely heal without enough people to talk to. A modern day therapist who would help Clarance improve would be a massive boon to him and his psyche.

    A microwave. It'd save hours of cooking for those hobbits and all those meals they love so much.

    Well, we got a lot of nearly modern things, like mobile phones for VIP (which is what I call the mailbox which can be accessed anywhere) or fast trains (ok, stable horses with swift travel) or a navigational device (mini-map), a cinema (erm, session-play), internet purchase (auction house), ... So I can't think of anything which isn't there in one form or another. Ok, maybe planes, but then again you have milestones for everyone and port points for hunters and wardens. Cities even have a sewers system, at least Gondorian big cities, that is.

    The only thing that comes to mind that would be really handy is a pencil for the map and quest log to take notes. This is something I really miss sometimes.
    There's something good in this world, and it is worth fighting for.

    I think Gandalf would want a torch lighter for his pipes. Much easier than matches.

    A tin of breath mints. It would be great to constantly make people wonder "what the heck is that Captain eating all the time?"

    Also, good breath is always good.

    Maybe not actually modern but a boat I could actually use.

    Beat me to it. I'm going to vote for Ioralor to win the points this week for this genius.

    Just think of how many quests would be cut to mere seconds! Go tell this guy something for me. (done) Go back to that first guy and tell him thanks for me. (done) Thanks for your help, hero! Now wash my dishes. Okay...so the cell phone wouldn't help with the domestic servitude quests...but still.

    Hey, how about a dishwasher?

    [re: to others above: We already have cell phones to "go tell so-n-so"... They're just on a Pay-As-You-Go plan, 1 MC per call. ]
