Faithless in this context = no fidelity/optimism/honesty. Not religious connotation.

faithless
ADJECTIVE

The Orcs in Middle Earth are bipedal, tool using carnivores. Some of the sources basically claim they're 'Changed Elves' and changed not for the better.

Not sure just how much 'Influence' the various dark powers have in the setting. Been a very long time since I perused the old pen and paper material. Just as long since I read any of the books.

Considering Gandaf, Sauron etc are all diety type critters. There's probably not a lot they can't actually do. It's just 'Setting rules' that keep them behaving as they are presented in the books.

Cheers.

If you play LOTR PC game from 2002, you can actually meet Tom Bombadil in that one.

No, most of them are the failed attempts of jesus. Others are trumps, comforts, hams, and hovinds. At least one of them is your mom.

I don't play computer games these decades, but you did tempt me there for about ten seconds, so kudos to you.

Atheists are not fantasy creatures.

Are bears that maul children theists?

23 Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, young lads came out from the city and mocked him and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead; go up, you baldhead!” 24 When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number.
I don't have an anger problem, I have an idiot problem
