Hmm. I guess I can see how it could be inadvertent, then, but given that so many parallels hit in such a short span of time, I was beginning to fear this was not only 100% intentional, but would continue to occur. One way around it would be to say "hey, Rich used the dwarves are afraid of trees LOTR trope already, so lets subvert it and do something different, or use another dwarven trope."
I don't want my criticism to appear too harsh, as I said, I love the work you guys are doing. I think its great.
