Legolas brags about nearly fighting the Balrog. Escorting people to Helms Deep is lame.

    name of a metal band. definetely.

  2. Trick says:

    Alright. When Legolas is talking about how they defeated a balrog… It sounded SO much (to me) like he was trying to woo Eowyn.

    I can think of two resulting scenarios:

    Legolas: We defeated a balrog, you know.
    Aragorn: She’s a woman, you realize.
    Legolas: Yeah, so?
    Aragorn: *raised eyebrow*
    Legolas: Okay, enOUGH of that already!

    Legolas: We defeated a balrog, you know.
    Aragorn: I… wouldn’t try, if I were you.
    Legolas: Why not?
    Aragorn: Just… bad idea. Take my word for it.
    Legolas: *raised eyebrow* Alright…

    As a singer, songwriter and guitarist, it’s been really, really hard for me to not play bards just to the dramatic musical recap.

  4. Joe says:

    to DO the dramatic musical recap. The verb “do” is important. Grargh.

    Is it sad that I found a Monty Python reference in that strip?
    Probably about as sad as the fact I find this funny even though I never played a D&D kind of game….
    I’m just ridiculously obsessed with LotR.

  6. joesolo says:

    yea, apperntally running in fear while a npc gets slughtered is still supposed to get you loot, xp and a reputation as a brave warrior.

  7. Spiritbx says:

    the bard song… like in the holy grail? those were the best bards ever… too bad they died the way they did…

  8. k9feline says:

    “Our brave heroes bravely ran away!
    Bravely ran away, away!
    When the Balrog reared it’s ugly head
    They bravely left their NPC for dead!”

    Yeah, that’s all I got.
