I see a couple of places on that map where the runes are switch around or there are different ones in place of those that should be there.

...

The "N" of the word "Stand" is missing in the first word of the second runic paragraph.

Kelsey

Is it possible that the "d" in "stand" is supposed to be "nd". The rest of the occurrences of the letter "d" in the passage are the other form of the letter (without the "box" around it).

A.

There is a Dwarven rune for d, which is missing from the second passage.
Also, the translation later on in the second passage should read, "..and the setting sun with the last light OF Durin's Day will shine upon the keyhole."

Luthien

can anyone tell me what the runes on thorins key says?

mulubinba

Luthien - I'm sorry for not replying earlier. I will have to check out the runes and get back to you :)

Safic

Luthien - They read Durins Heir

Thanks Safic :). Forgot all about looking into this for Luthien.

About this blog


  • Actor Richard Armitage has been cast as Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit Movies. This blog aims to explore the stories about Tolkien's dwarves and any other material that may be related to The Hobbit. I have been a long time follower of Richard Armitage's work and have also developed a great love and appreciation of Tolkien's writings. I was captivated by Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movies and will wait with great anticipation to see how he can bring "The Hobbit" to life for audiences.
