In this debate, I will argue in favor of the resolution. My opponent must prove that the Lord of the Rings is not in essence the story of Aragorn and the Men of Numenor. BOP is shared. Legitamate sources are anything authored by Tolkien, and this website:

I'll accept that challenge and look forward to my opponent's argument. Thanks to PotBelliedGeek for the opportunity to get my geek on.

I just bought an unedited original copy of the silmarillion at a thrift store for a dollar. They didnt know what they were selling.

The US edition with the mountains on the cover? Is that particularly valuable?

Reasons for voting decision: Arguments to Con because his point about the Irishman was never addressed by Pro. I want to give conduct to Con as well because of Pro's attempts at starting a racist joke, but Con blew it with his new argument in the final round about the value of Pro's new book. Sources to Pro since he was the only one to utilize them.
