@urban_ninja_x: I can't get passed them treating his board like it's a separate entity with it's own personality. As if it hasn't been explained a million times in the last 50 years that it's an extention of himself. It been bad characterization since the beginning. I didn't like the art at first but it grew on me.
Most men of Rohan died in their 70s and 80s. Men of Gondor lived longer with about an average of 100. Denethor was in his late 80s when he died and he was still in good health. Faramir lived to be 120.
Only the Dunedain, the descendants of Numenor were very long lived.
