Challenge: Let's Tolkienize BT!
« on: 25 December 2020, 17:58:57 »
Who wants to try their hand at coming up with at least an outline for a remix of the early 31st Century that would read like something written by a reincarnation of J. R. R. Tolkien, albeit one who was not a technophobe?

Some ideas suggested for your consideration:

Hanse Davion and Melissa Steiner as Aragorn and Arwen (with Victor Steiner-Davion as their future son Eldarion).

Katrina Steiner as Galadriel.

Dr. Tony Banzai as Gandalf.

Morgan Kell as Theoden.

Dan Allard as Eomer.

Aldo Lestrade as Grima Wormtongue.

Yorinaga Kurita as Muar the Balrog.

Takashi Kurita as Sauron.

Theodure Kurita as Er-Murazor, Lord of the Nazgul.

Hassid Ricol as the Orc General Gothmog.

Myndo Waterly as Saruman.

Maximilian Liao as Gollum.

Grayson Carlyle and Lori Kalmar as a Frodo Baggins and Sam Gamgee who want to give away memory cores rather than melt down rings.

Any more ideas, anyone?

Ever felt that The Powers That Were at FASA, WizKids and FanPro never gave Victor Steiner-Davion and the Federated Commonwealth a fair shake in the canon timeline? Then you might be interested in my Victor Victorious AU at

If it's closer to 3050 than 3005 I'd got with Myndo Waterly as Saruman and The Master as Sauron

I was thinking in terms of an alternate version of the Fourth Succession War, actually... .

Katrina Steiner is more Elrond than Galadriel (as "Arwen's" parent).  I'd think a Centrella would be more Galadriel...

Hmm... yeah, I think you're right there.

I'd think a Centrella would be more Galadriel...

In the suggested timeframe, that would mean the psychotic Kyalla Centrella. Somehow I can't see that working out very well. :(

Another thought... Alessandro Steiner as Denethor and Frederick Steiner as Boromir?

As long as we can somehow fit in Aldo Lestrade as Wormtongue...
