ok i didnt know if this should be in the movie forum or not but i dont think it should so here it goes....


i watched lord of the rings, return of the king, special edition today and it was so awesome but i couldnt help notice something



the dwarves were one of the largest races back then and they were very powerful and such and i was just wondering what happened to all of them... the only dwarf in all of the movies is Gimli and i was just wondering if there was something in the books that explained what happened......

also was Gimli some kind of king?

First of all, what do you mean by 'back then'. You do realize none of that ever happened... its a fantasy world... Secondly it explains in the book that the dwarves refused to fight alongside the humans. They didn't think it was their war to fight becuase Sauron wasn't bothering them.

The dwarves and the elves were actually in decline anyway, that's why there are so few elves, they called that the age of man because humans were coming into power and the elves and dwarves were declining in numbers. Read the books it makes everything a whole lot clearer.

well he destoryed the 3rd movie. Mixing in the boring parts of book 2. Still great job. Cept for having the spyder fight in movie 3 instead of the end to 2 like it should be. I mean perfect cliff hanger!!

Well before the war of the rings took place. There was the battle of kazadum, the battle of the 5 armies along with alot more crap. I will spare you the history. But there was many fatty battlies with dwarves and orcs for a long ass time. The remaning dwarvs lived in a mountain (forgot thr name) BUT IT ISNT FEATURED IN THE MOVIES. DAMN CAPS LOCK.

the battle that your talking about took place in the hobbit, the dwarves were all killed by the goblins and orcs. remember when they entered kazadum for the first time and gimli was upset cause he saw the dead dwarves? and the war of the rings took place even before the hobbit. the only book that explains what happened before is the simlarillion.

um, wasn't he just proven wrong? i only skimmed through but I coulda swore he said something was in the LOTR trilogy, and like 3 people said it was in the hobbit?

if that's the case, you got some brown stuff on your nose

like angered fist said, the dwarves as a race were in decline, and the ones that remained were very solitary.

they only lived in several mountians and caverns throughout middle earth, and humans didnt even know where those places were.
