To all Durin's folk: we have our honor to protect

The varied peoples of Middle-earth at times found unity in their pursuits, and all too often experienced deep rifts. Engage in lively conversations as we banter about the differences between the Alliances, and recruit for our People as well. Remember, keep it friendly.

How about you offer me something too! The shire will give you 50\% of all pipeweed for the first 10 years, then 25\% for the next 10 years, then 10\% for the rest of the alliance.<BR><BR>All that in exchange for the shire being left alone, and the ownership of Rivendell.<BR><BR>(silently) i also would like to have one of them human rings..<BR><BR><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0>

I'll agree to those terms as long as you don't live with us!!! Anything!!! <BR><BR>Seriously, I think we have a deal, IF, instead of our 'already' agreed free access to Mt.Doom, we treat the Mithril payments as payment for Moria, and as entry fee to Mt. Doom. because Dwarves don't pay tribute. I think that is quite reasonable, you get mithril, we get moria, mithril, and Mt. Doom. (sorta). And we split the rest.<BR><BR>agreed?

Just so you know thorin, there is no such thing as 'alliance' with the Dark Tower, only alleigance.<BR><BR>Also, no deal with Valinor if there's a deal with Mordor.

Samwise-JR,<BR><BR>Your offer is interesting and the Dark Lord is certainly interested. Your division of Pipe-Weed has potential, but the idea of "leaving the Shire alone" is unacceptable! <BR><BR>The Shire must pay hommage to the great lord! And it must pay for it's meddlesome ways! However, once the Shire is throughly laid waste, the Dark Lord will need a servant to oversee it's reconstruction into an effcient Pipe-Weed plantation that will serve Mordor.<BR><BR>....and I dare say, Samwise-JR, you may just be the type The Dark Lord is looking for...<BR><BR>Interested?<BR><BR>Think of it: Mastership of ALL of the Shire; your own private "villa"; a share in the profits that will make you the wealthiest Hobbit ever; your own private army of enforcers to do your bidding; all the Hobbit women (or men)that you could possible want...and all for a simple "yes"....<BR><BR>Interested?<BR><BR>...oh, I'm sure Sauron the Great can arrange for you to get a Ring of Power as a gift for your absolute loyalty.... <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

WEll i would say yes, but you didn't promise Rivendell and i don't want the entire of the shire laid waste. I would at least like my private villa to have a nice landscape. I will take all the hobbit women if you don't mind, and the children ( don't want to break up familys. I'll make absolutly sure that they don't escape to safety. The women and children are always first, that is to try and leave!<BR><BR>So whrn will you be delivering my ring, then we can make a deal !<BR><BR><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0>

Hey, Gorgemil, part of the original agreement was that the Dwarves got the Shire, and we were just gonna leave it alone, because of past friendship. Now, if they wanna join, they join on their own terms.<BR><BR>The Dark Lord doesn't have any other, unknown motives you've just, failed to mention does he?? That would not be a good idea.<BR><BR>I feel my terms are above acceptable, You have avoided them, so, deal, or no deal?

Thorin,<BR><BR><BR>I don't remember the Dark Lord ever agreeing to "give" Durin's Folk the Shire. I believe the idea was that the Shire was within your sphere of influence.<BR><BR>Remember, the Dark Lord, like former President Clinton, NEVER lies....only misleads... <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>I am altering the deal. Pray I alter it no futher.... <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>No matter. Now that we have a willing ally in the Shire, the Dark Lord is less willing to allow outside interference with the Shire. Circumstances have chaged. However, the Dark Lord still values greatly the loyalty of Durin's folk.<BR><BR>We offer as compensation The Glittering Caves (and the White Mountains of the vanquished realm of Gondor), exclusive mining rights within the Ephel Duath and Ered Gorgoroth and a gaurenteed percentage of Pipe-Weed from the Shire.<BR><BR>Oh...and of course the Dark Lord will still require his standard 10-percent tribute of all precious metals found.

Samwise-Jr,<BR><BR><BR>The Dark Lord hasn't decided on the fate of Rivendell just yet. It might amuse the Black Hand to make the former House of Elrond his nothern capitol of a sort. I must admit that the image of Elrond's so-called "last homely house" becoming a center of terror, torture and death is quite inviting. Not to mention becoming a prison for the bride of Sauron: Arwen herself!<BR><BR>However, the Dark Lord might be ammenable to allowing LOYAL Hobbits to administer Rivendel in his abscents.<BR><BR>Also, the Lord Sauron INSISTS that a "scouring" of the Shire (or something to that effect). The halflings MUST know terror and FEAR the dark fist of Sauron the Great! All Hobbits must tremble and bow before the servents of Mordor.

The loyalty of the Easterlings pleases the Dark Lord. Yes, you and your men will be given the pleasure of attacking and plundering the Shire for a 30-day period! For 30-days, you may do with the Shire as you please. But after that, it must be turned over to our LOYAL TRAITOR amougnst the Hobbits. So, don't kill too many Shire-folk, as they'll be needed to run the Pipe-weed plantations....<BR><BR>But rest assured, the Easterlings will get their fair share of Pipe-Weed and any other spoils that come from the conquest of Middle-Earth! All hail the Dark Lord!

The shire will only accept if you drop the 30 days down to 15. We are a small folk and can't handle that large amount of stress. I will happily take over Rivendell for you, and comand it in the name of the dArk lord. I will rule the shire from afar.<BR><BR><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0><BR><BR>So is the ring on its way?

Our leaders agree. The halflings are but a tiny stumbling block in the Dark Lord's conquest of Middle-earth, and making bargains with them is a waste of time. Why must we have their approval to take their land and pipeweed? It is our belief that we should simply take the Shire and its resources, no questions asked.

Oh man...How did this gem lose itself through the years? I love the topic discussed here. I have to bring this back to the forefront. We dwarves will oust these puny elves and men of the west. It's only a matter of time.
