Battle of Dagorlad by shadowdark3 Battle of Dagorlad by shadowdark3
Next Scene:

Previous Scene:


I've been pushing to get this one out, so I'm like, typing this description up with my eyes trying to close, about to fall asleep. I did all my final revisions/proofing while in a similar state, so hopefully I didn't miss anything major. I'm really really excited to start on the next one, so, yeah. It won't be long now before we're leaving the prologue behind and starting the real journey. Just have to cut the ring from Sauron's finger, and have a quick chat about how it was lost, then we're off to the Shire!! :D

Ooooh, I can't wait! :happybounce:

P.S., y u so big file size??

P.P.S. Sorry for rushing through this without getting into detail about the origins of the Dead Marshes or emphasizing just how long the campaign in Mordor lasted. I'm just so excited to get to the CMC and Mane 6 playing their parts. :excited:

If that is what Orcs look like as ponies... What would the Uruk-Hai look like? o_0

I'd like to see that. X3

So, they'll be the Uruk-Hai of Isengard as well then?

Every time someone comments with a quote from the movie, I wish so hard for the movies to be animated with ponies, especially after the ponified Hobbit trailer.

Do I see Octavia there? Yeah, I'm gonna assume this is just a 'play'. Even though Daring Do is fictional in canon Equestria.

Awesome! Faved! :D Also, some suggestions regarding villain roles:
-Trixie as Saruman since Twi is Gandalf
-Discord as Grima Wormtongue since Discord twisted the minds of the mane six by feeding them with lies, similar to how Wormtongue controlled Theoden, who also turned quite grey while poisoned. And Gandalf used a spell to make Theoden better again, just as Twilight used her magic to save her friends from Discord's curse.
-Queen Chrysalis as Sauron since well, changelings are orcs and plus her eyes fit well with the eye of Saruon. It could be a green-ish fire surrounding the eye.

Anyway, just my current thoughts regarding those roles. :P

Ah.

Make sure you get a few insights on Uruk-hai beating the crap out of orcs. I wanna see a drawn representation of the Diamond Dogs' obvious superiority to Changelings.

Damn locustponies...

If you are a weakling and are in the midst of this kind of war, sit down, stick your elbow in your ear and practice yoga (It's all an illusion anyway)

It might, if Sauron were a pony. ;)

I tried drawing him as a pony, and it turned out pretty bad :hmm:, so I'm going with a non-pony character to play him.

Octavia is playing the role of Elrond Half-Elven in this series based off of The Lord of the Rings, and Daring Do is portraying Isildur, ancestor of one of the protoganists of the books and films - King Aragorn II Elessar (Rainbow Dash will be filling that part). ;)
