Another reason I made the switch from a gag comic to a more story/character driven comic was because I wanted the underlying theme of seeing new places and new things that you’ve only just read about before. In this current era, due to the internet, I think that the thirst for discovery and adventure has been overridden by Google Search. Not that I’m knocking the usefulness of Google, it helps me quite a lot, but it shouldn’t replace the desire to see and do things first hand.
For funsies, though it has no bearing to story flow:
The Elvish (Sindarin) is transliterated as:
Lim sui rych brand, i duin daer rimma
I arya beleg o nin pain, i cuil-rant o firen erdh
A! i gened o Belegsir celefn,
I arya mirwa o men pain
tyr naeth pain gwanno
… though the grammar is probably atrocious haha.
