Total Tolkien #005 Two and a Half Swords

Total Tolkien #005 Two and a Half Swords

 

Image

 

This episode of Total Tolkien looks at the Elvish Blades of Glamdring, Orcrist and Sting, owned by Gandalf, Thorin Oakenshield and Bilbo respectively. 

 

We look at the place and the people who forged them, their powers and properties, why they glowed blue and cut spiders like butter.

 

Three of the greatest swords not only of the Lord of the Rings Stories, but in all the History of Middle Earth.

  1. As a huge Tolkien fan (I first read the books during the resurgence of interest 40 years ago during the counter-culture movement)*, I will have to come back and listen to some of these podcasts. THANKS for subscribing to my funny-caption photoblog! I hope I can bring you a smile (or at least a groan) every weekday.
