Talk:Nameless Things

How do we know that these nameless things create tunnels? This is, I think, an unsupported assumption. They may simply use the caves and cracks below the earth, mightn't they?

Perhaps this possibility should be included? (as a newcomer, I didn't want to start changing content)

Perhaps the assumption is based on the quote that says the nameless things "gnaw" on the earth? But I could also imagine that these creatures use underground caves and cracks, as you say, and the delvings by Morgoth of the Underdeeps. --Morgan 19:26, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
