    Session 6-11: Beren and Lúthien Finale

    I know I sometimes pick silly things to nitpick about, but it's usually because they are long-term ideas rather than the right-now issues that are already settled. But, why does Narsil have to end up on the Hill of the Slain? There has to be an easier route to get it to Nargothrond before Turin...

    Session 6-11: Beren and Lúthien Finale

    Just listened to the session. Wow. A lot got rearranged in 11-13. Am I correct in remembering that the Narsil discussion led to getting them into Brethil and meeting Andreth and Emildir, but we've now decided that Narsil is no longer there now, but in Nargothrond? Or is it going to Nargothrond...

    Season 5 Scriptwriting

    While we are currently on Season 6, there are still 8 episodes from season 5 with no completed scripts, so I wouldn't turn down someone offering to pitch in. While writing for the previous season may be less of a priority and less likely to be reviewed on the actual SilmFilm broadcast, it could...

    Script Discussion S06E03

    I am watching the recording of this episode's session on Twitch. Does Nick's audio kick in at some point? I feel like i'm missing half the conversation :confused: Edit: nevermind. I saw it came up in another thread...

    Session 6-11: Beren and Lúthien Finale

    I'm ok with Melian having "mirror of Galadriel powers" but we need to have it be... different? Like, not a mirror. Melian served Vana and Este. Este is where she learned of healing and rest, what if her affiliation with Vana gives her some powers of flowers or birds? What if her "mirror" is...

    Session 6-11: Beren and Lúthien Finale

    I just remembered I started a conversation a week ago that I never jumped back into: Re: Narsil. First, i think I am against either Beren or Luthien meeting Emeldir. I wasnt suggeating that specifically, just that we'd have to go to Brethil to see Narsil. Are we even sure she survived? Maybe...

    Session 6-11: Beren and Lúthien Finale

    Don't they need to head over the mountains soon? Her song says she and Celeborn left Beleriand before the falls of Nargothrond and Gondolin. And we are only a few seasons away from those kingdoms falling.

    Session 6-11: Beren and Lúthien Finale

    I had a few thoughts listening to one of the previous sessions. This is is both looking forward a bit, but also looking back: shouldn't we show Narsil at some point this season? I don't know where we last left it; I do know Andreth was in possession of it, last I recall. But, if we are doing...

    SilmFilm: The Adaptation: The Audio Drama

    It actually popped back into my mind again a few nights ago, when I was reading the 6.01 outline. I'm considering it for one, but it seems like it would have a rather large cast as well. But, this show seems like every episode will have a rather large cast, so yeah. I'm fine with any of the...

    Session 6-09: Beren and Lúthien, Part 3

    We do know there are at least 3 (not including Sauron); the one Finrod kills, the unnamed one Huan kills and Draugluin. It does make sense to maybe include some warg-riders, though were there any among Sauron's troops? I don't recall if they were aligned with a certain sect of Morgoth's forces...

    Session 6-08: Beren and Lúthien Part 2

    Yeah, yeah, I know. Harry Potter happened to be on tv while I was reading this conversation and I just thought there would be a slight Snape parallel if he was to come back to help, mentor and hopefully not bully Luthiens child after she passes.

    Blank Shield, session 218

    It's really not fair to say Boromir's shield has no device or design. Yes, there is nothing on the main shield part, but the boss has Gondorian Wings©️ and Seven Stars™️®️.

    Session 6-07: Beren and Lúthien, Part 1

    I'm saying if Oropher is not staying at Tol Sirion, but is in Hithlum under Finfolfin. If he fled with some other Sindar after the Bragollach, he could pass near Tol Sirion around the time Sauron takes it over. Like I said, just a hypothetical.

    Session 6-07: Beren and Lúthien, Part 1

    Theres no explicit evidence that they do. But I dont think they have a reason not to. The Sindars grievance is more with the sons of Feanor than the other Noldor. Even if they have a reason not to stay there, we can some some captured by Sauron en route from Barad Eithel to Doriath.

    Session 6-07: Beren and Lúthien, Part 1

    Yes, there were many Sindar who were in the North of Beleriand before the Noldor came along. Many of them intermingled with the hosts of Fingolfin when he arrived (including a pretty big portion of Turgon's people actually being made up of Sindar, I believe). In the aftermath of the Bragollach...

    Session 6-07: Beren and Lúthien, Part 1

    Being in Tol Sirion is just a hypothetical at this point. As far as I can find, he's not been introduced yet. He could also be introduced as one of the Elves returning to Doriath from other kingdoms. Hithlum for example.

    Session 6-07: Beren and Lúthien, Part 1

    It's just... a bit late to dig into that much this season. while this season isn't exclusively Beren and Luthien, it is mostly Beren and Luthien. I don't dislike the idea of having them both imprisoned on T-i-G together, forming a bond even. We just won't have much time to focus on them much...

    Session 6-07: Beren and Lúthien, Part 1

    The C-Bros are new to the scene in Nargothrond, and they are likely not gone yet. Even if he was a resident of Nargothrond or Tol Sirion before being held by Sauron, I dont think he would want to be in the presence of Feanorians. Or, he could just want to return to Doriath after growing weary of...

    Session 6-07: Beren and Lúthien, Part 1

    I think that Gil-Galad being High King of the Noldor, rather than a descendant of Thingol would give Oropher enough resentment in the future that age and seniority doesn't really need to play into it. I thought so, but didn't want to say so without being certain.
