Ah, the last one. Surely inspired by Christopher Lee, but he makes a good Saruman, so why chance it? I'm looking forward to what the whole White Council scene will become. (You are still planning on Erestor and Celeborn as well?)
Yes, and I'm thinking about adding Thranduil to the charac. sheets series, given his role with Gollum. He's considered as one of the possible participants. He may have participated at one session of the Council at least, since there were many gatherings between the wizards and the wisest elves, and not particularly in Imladris.
