2006-08-27 [Angel Dreamer]: In Middle-earth, they're the same. Unless you're going to argue with Tolkien about his own creation?

2006-08-27 [Deadlock jester]: That's dumb. Why describe one creature from one writers' view, when nearly all the others in the creature_list are based upon the rules of D3.0?

2006-08-27 [Angel Dreamer]: Because the point of the creature_list is to collect the various differing versions of mythical creatures in one place. It's not just for "one writer's view", it's for all of them.
