Gondor or Rohan?
Join to comment
Whenever I meet another person that seems to be equally obsessed with the Lord of the Rings as I am, I always ask them "Gondor or Rohan? Why?"

I am a definitely a Son of Gondor.

So, I thought that I'd just throw this out there.

"Gondor or Rohan, and why?"

Though i like both i think i'd go with Rohan i don't know why,
i just like them more.
Maybe because they're are based on vikings and im Norwegian,
(Not that we still travel around and plunder people, hahaha),
and then there is that music.....

I am definitely a Gondorian. They are my favorite peoples of The Lord of the Rings universe.

Hmm.. I like them both but think I like Rohan better, because they play a more important role in LOTR, I especially like their part in the movies and I really like many Rohirrim (like Theoden, Eowyn, Gamling etc...)

Rohan by far. I would much rather live on the plains with the horses than in the large cities. (But I'm an elf anyway, not a man, so it doesn't matter)

I like Rohan just because the plains are very cool and maybe you can sneak away and play at Helms Deep with friends? =D

I would defiantly go with Rohan because their fighting skills whilst riding a horse are epic!!

I'm definitely Rohan! Their armor is cooler in my opinion (works great for my Lego sig fig :D). Also, they've got horses and are famous for that!
I also like the plains.

I agree. Gondor isn't much without a king in my opinion.

I have mostly the same thoughts.

Er,,, Gondor has plains too, if that's all you going with Rohan for. Rohan used to be a part of Gondor.

Well, Gondor. It has a king now, (or at least at the end of the trilogy) and it's just plain awesome. Not to mention they have cooler weapons and stuff.

Rohan. I'm not saying Gondor isn't cool, just that Rohan is cooler :) I mean come one, The freakin' saved Gondor at the Battle of Pelenor fields! But did Gondor come to save them at Helm's Deep? Nooo...

Rohan didn't call for aid. Also, Gondor probably could have withstood the siege until the Ring was destroyed. Rohan simply prevented a massive loss of life. Plus, Aragorn did come with the Army of the Dead, which could have single-handedly taken out the entire orc army.

Well, on another note, I like the People of Dale and Esgaroth even a bit more than those from Rohan and Gondor... :)

I hope we get to see a lot of their culture in the upcoming films. And I hope they're able to portray them properly! When I watched the sneak-peak the people of Esgorath seemed a bit too renaissancey! If that makes sense, haha

I don't really like Esgaroth, but Dale's okay. Although, the people I like even better than Gondor or Rohan, are... The dwarves of Erebor!!!

Rohan. Theoden had the coolest War-speeches of any race ever. Denethor always got on my nerves. Plus Shadowfax (coolest horse ever) was from Rohan, not Gondor. It's funny that my two favorite horses in the world are fictional.

I agree. They are indeed a bit disappointing, but then again they are still better than beardless dwarves like Kili or Ori.

Kili's beard was quite disappointing. Ori's wasn't bad but I didn't really like Ori in the movie. He was far too naive and childish.

I think Ori was OK, but I didn't really like Dori's behaviour. He is supposed to be brave and the strongest dwarf in the company, but in the movie he is more like an arrogant upper class lady.

Beard? More like an 8 o'clock shadow.:-P Anyway we are getting pretty off-topic here.

Yeah, the discussion was so interesting that I totally forgot about that. I think we should better continue it in the Tolkien Debate Forum of this group:

I think it's interesting that there were a number more Rohirrim than Gondorians (I am to lazy right now to calculate the exact stats) but I would have expected about even numbers.
