    Was there ever a war between Dwarves and Elves? I am wondering why there is so much hostility between them. In the Silmarillan they got along pretty well, except for the slaying of Thingol for the Nauglimir. Is that one of the reasons?

    Yes the dwarves were at war some with the elves. Especial the issue you named. But many of the dwarves, mainly the petty dwarves believed that Finrod had stolen their homes and treasures.

    Thanks for the info EBM. Were there any major wars, or were they just sort of skirmishes?

    I don't think there were any major wars. They did have their little scirmishes, but the petty dwraves hated the elves just as much as orcs because the elves would hunt them thinking they were evil beasts. The only major battle between elves and dwarves was when the dwaves attacked thingol and then the greenelves attacked them in their way bacl home. Other than that I think they were usually allies against Morgoth.

    Dwarves also had a war with the Dragons once but I think most people know that.

    I don't really like the petty dwarves. What was that one's name who met Turin (I think) in the Sil. Was it Mim? Anyway, he bugs me a bit.
