You mean, which is the least strong?
Well, "young" for an Ent is a bit different than "young" for a human.

But let us not forget that Numenorians went there, and there were most likely natural Spirits of Arda on the continent. Creatures like Tom Bombadil, Badger-Brock, or the Nameless. They had to exist here when the world was flat and disc shaped. Being magical they had more of a chance to survive and let us not forget that many of the said tribes had mythologies that could very well relate to the Spirits of Arda.
Also, though I am sure no one cares by now--I feel that the Land of the Sun is based off of Japan, and the New Lands are a continent that has sprung up from Valinor's departure.
Tolkien had an idea that Middle-earth would evolve into our world, so that Harad was Africa, most of the Northwest would become Europe, I guess Rhun would be Asia and Russia, and the Sun-lands would be the Americas. It actually makes sense if you shift it a bit.

It’s just a hassle to actually tame all of them so you can figure out which one is fastest, has the most health, etc.
For Rohan, it’s Dunlendings.
He would've became an Imperial pilot, and anyways, if he had failed to graduate at the Academy, he would have been likely to join the Imperial Army.
Funny...if not for a strange twist of fate, Luke would've wound up as a stormtrooper...
Eh I'm like 5'7" and I look older than I am, that might be a thing for bullying with me...
@sir lazuli, have you ever had cats? if so and you still don't like them it's just your personality. If not a lot of people feel different when they actually get a cat.
You've gotta give it up for how stealthy those cats are though...I went to my cousin's house for Christmas for three weeks and did not even see their cat until the second-to-last day.
When I don't have school, I just play with dry ice and eat cheese :P
Well, they have to have broad enough backs in order to realistically support an Orc. Having a thinner spine would make it more difficult for its back to support humanoids when they ride into battle.
At present, quite large areas of the Barrow-Downs look like this:
However, in The Fellowship of the Ring, it is clearly said that there are no trees: "There was no tree nor any visible water: it was a country of grass and short springy turf".
My suggestion is simply that these trees be removed from the Barrow-Downs biome in the interests of lore-accuracy.
Already been suggested, but it's a good suggestion so whatever, you have my kudos.
Also, @WoodenBox, the downsizing of forests in biomes known to be plains (Rohan, for example) was an endorsed and popular suggestion on the forum some time ago.
I'm actually gonna do that lol
Like a Tauredain pyramid...actually, it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a maze leading to it...
They relied on their fear aspect as well, and this worked much better than their actual fighting skills. They would often ransack coastal villages or churches because they could strike fast enough to escape attack. Aethelred, an English king, even gave the Vikings an annual fee just for not attacking England.
Well, a lot of the Europeans saw them as very unique due to their paganism.
Well, but the Woodmen literally live in the Anduin Vale. They’re just the Eóthéod who stayed behind after the Eorlingas were given Calenardhon by Gondor.
