--Moved from article:--


  • this entry needs to cite sources as there is no indication in the Histories of Middle-earth that the werewolves could not change form or that they were Maiar. When they are first mentioned in The War of the Jewels, they are grouped with Orcs in the Hosts of Melkor, giving the implication that they were lesser beings and 'made' rather than fallen or lesser Maiar such as Balrogs.

  • I have removed the following section from this page
"In Battle for Middle-Earth II:Rise of the Witch King, the faction of Angmar has a power called the "Shade of the Wolf" which when cast, summons a giant ghost of a Were-Wolf under the caster's control."

The reason for the removal of this sentnnce is due to the fact that the video game "Battle for Middle-Earth II: Rise of the Witch King" cannot be considered to be a canonical piece of work, since it has not been authored by Tolkien himself, or by anyone considered to be a canonical authority on Tolkien's legendarium (such as Christopher Tolkien). As such, any information on Tolkien's legendarium that is sourced from a non-canonical text cannot be considered to be relevant, and therefore holds no place in this article.

Attack on the Fellowship[edit]

The attack on the Fellowship of the Ring (before the company enter Moria) it is implied that the wolves that attack are not normal wolves, as they the bodies have vanished in the morning. Does anyone have anything on this? Carl Sixsmith (talk) 19:18, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
