I'm a LotR purist, I guess, so maybe I'm weird that it bothers me, but that's just not how magic works in Tolkien's universe. And most especially not with elves.
Gandalf doesn't chuck fireballs.
I'm such a nerd... !
Edit: Who is Aragorn? I don't even...
Ok, I can see not having an interest in seeing the movies. But to exist in gaming culture and not have read LotR... I mean, just for his job he should. Fanatasy wouldn't exist in its current form, Sci-fi would be drastically different, were it not for Tolkien. Thus, the gaming landscape would be another beast altogether. Man. Poor Jeff.
Double edit: Then again, if all he's been exposed to is tripe like this, I can see why he has no interest.
This post is incredible.
