Re: Recycled Plots

Shelob, Shelob. In the dark looks like a blob. Spins a web, any size. Catches orcs just like flies. Look out! Here comes the Shelob. Is she strong? Listen bud. She's Ungonliant offspring blood. Can she swing from a thread? Take a look overhead. Hey there! There goes the Shelob. In the chill of night...

Re: Recycled Plots

I'm goin' west to Elfhome, gonna have myself a time. Friendly faces everywhere, humble folks without temptation. I'm going west to Elfhome, gonna leavy my woes behind. Ample singing day or night, Elf-lords spouting poetry. I'm heading' west to Elfhome, gonna see if I can't unwind. Tra-la-lally ha-ha...

Re: Recycled Plots

This is the story of a time long ago, a time of myth and legend. When the ancient Maiar were petty and cruel, and they plagued mankind with suffering. Only one man dared to challenge their power: Aragorn*. Aragorn possessed a stature the world had lost long ago, a stature surpassed only by the power...

Re: Recycled Plots

Frodo, Sam, and Gollum,
On a trip to Orodruin,
Found the greaaaatest chasm ever known.
Hiiiiigh 'bove the abyss,
The hobbit claimed the Ring,
Then Gollum fell a thousand feet below.

In the laaaaaaaand of Mordor.
In the laaaaaaaand of Mordor.

Re: TV series set in Middle Earth may be coming

Boba Fett in the parade was just a Lucas character being shown off before its on-screen appearance in the Star Wars Christmas Special. The owner of the rights to Star Wars also owned the rights to Boba Fett as part of Star Wars. This was not a literary property with separate film and television righ...

Re: TV series set in Middle Earth may be coming

I think you're making some pretty big assumptions. I am speculating on very little information, yes. As are we all. I would think they still own their own inventions, including characters and plots. If Amazon can legally use the Aragorn character I'm skeptical that C7 can't license, say, the Gibbet...

Re: TV series set in Middle Earth may be coming

I think it would be awesome for Cubicle 7 to offer up some of it's creativity and source material from it's games to Amazon to help add some continuity to the stories. That is not at all how the licensing for all this works. Basically, what has changed is who is in control of the non-movie rights. ...

Re: Recycled Plots

It's time to pack the pony. It's time to move at night. It's time to meet the hobbits in the Fellowship tonight. It's time to wield our weapons. It's time to dress up right It's time to stick to shadows in the Fellowship tonight. How do we avoid Sauron? I hope he doesn't know. It's like a kind of to...
