Well...we did chop down one tree. you know, Circle of Life and such.

And then there was the time that we almost burned down our own grove.

That one was not really planned.

Thain is, in Tolkien's works, a hobbit military leader.

It's not from Tolkien's works. "Thain" is an alternate spelling of "Thane" or "Thegn" which is a lower-ranked aristocrat/noble soldier in Anglo-Saxon England and the Scandinavian countries in I think the 8th-11th century or something.

Most of the non-Elvish words in Tolkien have a real-world meaning, I suspect. He was after all a scholar of Anglo-Saxon language and culture.

I was aware Thain meant something like minor noble, but that sounds a bit different from military leader.

Evil brings men together.
If it were not for evil, Paladins would be lazy fat drunk holy men.
Whenever I'm caught between two evils, I take the one I've never tried.
If you kill one person you are a murderer, if you kill thousands you are a warlord.
Mages stand behind others just long enough to gain the power to stand on top of them.
