Boots A Statement From the Lord High Scorekeeper

No, they are not.

Years ago I haughtily decided not to track the Junior games because in the beginning they were intended to be a more...introductory setting.

I agree this changed over the...

This recent event has led me to pick up Tolkien's works again, which I haven't done in awhile (I know, for shame! :o)

I don't know that it matters, the game is almost certain to be horrible.

Is there any hope that since GoT is commonly held to have ended on a sour note, that perhaps that will pour some cold water on Amazon wanting to pursue this enterprise too avidly?

Probably not. :(

Boots Time to indulge in some serious pedantry

The Orocarni (if that is what those are supposed to be) should be a much larger mountain range.

Given the names on the map, I agree with Huinesoron that the Second Age looks more likely.

What about the theories that King Scorpion II and Narmer were one and the same person?

I think that would tend to undermine your theory a bit.

Boots Just some thoughts

1) I would like to express my gratitude that Tolkien abandoned the term "Gnomes" for the Noldor. I realize this is a post facto preference because if he hadn't I would have never know, but every...

Boots Birthday Wishes

I drift back to the Downs today for the first time in a few months and notice that today is Lush's birthday.

A long departed but still missed member here, I hope she is doing well wherever she is.
