[edit] Hornburg

A sentence (which I removed from the page), read:

"and that they helped the Rohirrim win an important battle at the Hornburg."

I haven't been able to find any support for the claim the Huorns helped the Rohirrim. Please let me know if I've missed any reference. --Morgan 18:37, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

They went to seal off the Deeping-coomb from retreating Orcs. That's what was probably meant. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:43, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll have a look into it later. --Morgan 18:48, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Blackhearted trees

The MERP section in this article seems to include a Tolkien quote on the "blackhearted" trees of Mirkwood. Is this from The Hobbit (I haven't been able to locate it, though), or is just "fanon"? --Morgan 18:37, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
