This page is devoted to
the monsters and races belonging to darkness.
Here you will find Orcs, Goblins, Balrogs
and many more fearsome creatures.
According to a hobbit rhyme, a race of
insects called hummerhorns was said to have battled a questing knight.
Wheter these ferocious insects were of giant size, or the knight was of
some diminutive race, or wheter the tale was a product of hobbit humour
cannot now be learned.
