What were the dwarves like back when Tolkien intended them to be evil servants of Morgoth?

On the other hand, the only two named winged-dragons (Ancalagon and Smaug) were also urulóki: they breathed fire. There are no other dragons explicitly stated to be like Glaurung, both fire-breathing but not flying, making it difficult to argue from Tolkien's published works that he intended Glaurung's brood to constitute a discrete lineage. The Rings of Power were forged by the Elven-smiths of the Noldorin settlement of Eregion. The smiths were led by Celebrimbor, the grandson of Fëanor, the greatest craftsman of the Noldor, working with Dwarves from Khazad-dûm (Moria) led by his friend Narvi. Sauron, powerful and ambitious, but humiliated by the fall of his evil master Morgoth at the end of the First Age, had evaded the ... Númenor, also called Elenna-nórë or Westernesse, is a fictional place in J. R. R. Tolkien's writings. It was the kingdom occupying a large island to the west of Middle-earth, the main setting of Tolkien's writings, and was the greatest civilization of Men.However, after centuries of prosperity many of the inhabitants ceased to worship the One God, Eru Ilúvatar, and rebelled against the ... The Elves were pushed back almost to the Blue Mountains, while their Dwarf allies (who had also rejected Sauron) retreated behind the walls of Moria where Sauron could not assail them. Sauron was the Dark Lord of almost all of Middle-earth beyond the coasts, but the Númenóreans responded to the Elves' call for aid and sent a relief force. After a 1000 year sleep, she and her clan were awakened in Manhatten, a strange new world to them. To Chelsea, it somehow seems familiar to her, but she's not sure why.

Dwarves were a race of Middle-earth also known as the Khazad (in their own tongue) or Casari, Naugrim, meaning 'Stunted People', and Gonnhirrim, the 'Masters of Stone'. The Dwarves were made by Aulë, whom they themselves called Mahal, meaning “maker.” Aulë was unwilling to await the coming of the Children of Ilúvatar, for he was impatient and desired to have someone to teach his lore ... The Nírnaeth Arnoediad, also known as the Battle of Unnumbered Tears, was the fifth major battle in the War of the Jewels that took place in the late First Age and fought between the Union of Maedhros and Morgoth's forces.

2021.10.16 23:32 chilachinchila What were the dwarves like back when Tolkien intended them to be evil servants of Morgoth?

I watched a YouTube video on Wired about a Tolkien expert explaining each race in middle earth. He brought up that before The Hobbit dwarves were meant to be evil, greedy, not craftsmen at all and created by Morgoth. I found this really interesting since it’s not how dwarves are commonly portrayed, but makes sense considering how they acted in Norse mythology. Is there any more info on how they were originally, or where they just a few notes by Tolkien at that point?

2021.10.16 23:32 GodxImmanic The game lost its fun

Rocket League started off as a game with new mechanics, a new way of looking at games, it was entirely physics based but most importantly it was fun as hell. Now I've always wanted to be one of the top played which I can say that I'm most definitely not, I mainly only average around GC 1/2 but got stuck in C3 for some time. I thought that it would be fun to be as skilled as these players but it just isn't. Obviously I'm not as skilled as them but given GC was something I wanted from the very beginning. Achieving it and maintaining it just wasn't fun.
Everyone in your rank is just incredibly good (most of the time) sometimes way too good for the rank and every game just feels sweaty, doesn't feel fun, it feels like it's just RLCS but without any achievement other than 9mmr and a win to your streak. It doesn't feel the same as a game like trackmania where even in the higher levels it's still really fun because you're constantly challenged by people at the same level as you. I've played a decent amount of ranked in that game and it's almost completely fair, there's very little smurfing, there's less overskilled and underskilled players, it's almost completely fair gameplay and very intense but still fun.
The problem with rocket league is it's just mindless grinding now, there's nothing like there was in Sarpbc where you had those really fun modes where you had to avoid being demo'd or when you had to score all the balls in a short period of time, go into unfair games against the bots. All of that was super fun and the fact it was not and still isn't in rocket league is just a bummer. I usually just play the community maps now because those are fun and engaging and I actually feel a sense of accomplishment from completing the rings maps or dribble challenges.
Ranked is just boring and the same sentiment goes for casual, but have lost their fun, the LTMs they release are just shit you can play in custom games with your friends, there's nothing unique or different, the only reason people care is because it's something they asked for, for a long time but to me, the wait for LTMs or new modes just wasn't worth it when all we are getting is pretty much recycled content.
I have hopes for UE5 Rocket League and that things change but I don't think anything will. It's basically the car soccer equivalent of fortnite. A game that was fun in the earlier stages but now that everyone watches top players, thanovic, musty, leth and so on they are just aiming for the big leagues and sweating hard. Sucks cause this used to be a favourite game of mine.

2021.10.16 23:32 no_underage_trading Need help improving my Swedish so I can understand normal swedish

I am in a very strange situation and would like to improve my Swedish. I speak a little Swedish as my mother tongue, but only the Finnish dialect. I can speak fluently, read reasonably okay and write quite badly. But I don't understand normal Swedish at all, which I find very unfortunate. I only understand the Finnish dialect. Could you guys help me find any way to learn the normal Swedish dialect? Any TV series or YouTube videos? I don't know how to start as many resources for complete beginners are far too easy for me.

2021.10.16 23:32 jame5p420 Really want to start the series but had a couple questions

I wanted to start this series, but had a couple things I wanted to ask first.

  1. LN vs the anime’s for index, should I just go with the LN right from the start? I heard the anime’s were worse than fates adaptations and if that’s the case I’d rather just go the route where the MC is actually represented properly. So is LN the best way?
  2. For accelerator and rail gun are the anime’s good adaptations of their mangas or should I just go with the source material for them aswell?

2021.10.16 23:32 blue-fort Can you change suggested workouts?

I had no time for a run today. While I was out and about doing errands I checked my Garmin for today's suggested workout. It was a threshold run, which I really wanted to do.
I know when I run tomorrow, and get Garmin suggested run, it will be different, likely a base run.
Is it possible to change it? I could just do a threshold run on my own, but I really like the screen Garmin has for the suggested run with the high low range very visible... and the alerts. It's just convenient

2021.10.16 23:32 pleasegodhelpme23984 Locked Oneplus 7 Pro

So I was watching videos on my phone one night when I accidentally hit the power button, when I turn my phone back on it disabled my fingerprint scanner as if I had tried it a bunch of times even though I hadn't touched it. So I go to put in the pattern (with the 9 dots) and even though I've been doing it from muscle memory for literally 8 years (I've used the same pattern through several different phones) and very vividly remember what the password is for some reason I still can't get it. Now the only way to get into it is to factory reset it and I was wondering if there would be anyway to get the pictures before factory resetting it. Even if I have to hack into it somehow just is there literally ANY way possible to get the pictures out without unlocking it?
