Somewhere around 2012 I stumbled upon a link in a forum for a fantastic treatment of a Numenor screen adaptation. It was quite lengthy and very well-thought through.

I can no longer find any trace of this on the internet and was wondering if anyone else could point me in the right direction, if they also had encountered it.

I seem to remember the author was a bit of a language-phile and the adaptation was possibly found on his site dedicated to Tolkien languages?

TIA!

You are most likely thinking of Helge Fauskanger's Westernesse.

I am sure that Manwe is correct, as always.

Wait, how is it that we get 2 very rare posters both popping up on the same day? How are you Manwe and Shiggy?! Good to see you both!

I agree with some of what Fauskanger suggests might work here . . . and with me as casting director, art director, scriptwriter, cinematographer, and . . . erm. . . director . . .  it could work.

Also, I would like to play the part of a character named Elthir, a ridiculously handsome Half-Elf/Half-dark-grey-horse who ends up convincing a young Dunadan named Fauskanger that orc is a Westron word and should finally be added to the Ardalambion Westron wordlist.

Somebody make it happen!

I thought it interesting that all of the quotes from the movie were not Tolkien's own words, but were actually well written interpolations put into character's mouths.  They were well chosen and I think point out that at times the script writers really did do a good job at interpreting the work.

All the Amazon actors announced are for the first season; I think there is still hope for you on upcoming seasons, Elthir.  No doubt they are holding their best for later.
