    I have heard rumors about a hidden Balrog in Moria for a few weeks now. However, despite my searches, I have been unable to find him. First of all, if it doesn't exist, please tell me right now, as I really really do not want to waste anymore of my life. If it DOES exist though, it would spoil the fun if you guys just told me where it was. I have an idea, though. If anyone here could give me a cryptic riddle or tricky hint on where this balrog is, I would really appreciate it. Or, if you just want to keep me in the dark, that's fine too I guess. :)

    Following your logic...

    Firetrucks have 4 wheels and 8 men.
    4+8=12
    There's 12 inches in a ruler
    Queen Elizabeth
    was a ruler
    The queen Elizabeth
    was also a ship
    That ship sailed the seven seas
    Those seas had fish in them
    Those fish had fins
    The Finns fought the Russians
    The Russians wore red
    Firetrucks are always rushin(g)
    Is that why firetrucks are always red???????????


    The point?
    Don't read too much into things.

    Nice Logic! I always knew that there was a good reason!

    At the time of the War of the ring there was ONE Balrog left
    Balrogs have TWO wings
    2+1 = 3
    Half Life 3 confirmed

    I did some fairly extensive exploring (getting lost) in Moria and I didn't find anything that resembled a Balrog. However, I also know I didn't go down every path possible so who knows. Maybe there is a creature hiding in the deep...

    You know, I am starting to suspect someone made this up to trick me....... But, until we prove that; we must keep searching!

    I did a fairly-thorough search myself at some point, but it came up empty. Pretty sure it's just a line to keep droogs busy.

    Once I saw a giant red statue of someone close to the east gate, but I don't think it is a balrog. Maybe someone thought it was one.

    That would be the dwarf statue in the hall of the droogs.
