Tar-Telperien has just left Hobbiton.
Thank you.

If we are going to use that Ros segment, should we replace Atani with Edain? This is potentially a big issue—sometimes the word Atani means "all Men", and other times it is used as a synonym of its Sindarin cognate, Edain—"the Men of the Three Houses who aided the Elves in their war against Morgoth". This Atani/Edain conflict could easily come up in other places, too; has any consensus been made on it?

Aiwendil, I had also considered cutting out that line, but I like its "definiteness"... I was wondering if there was a way we could break up that long sentence about the languages of the prayers and sneak it in somewhere. But if not, oh well.
"Ye are my children. I have sent you to dwell here. In time ye will inherit all this Earth, but first ye must be children and learn. Call on me and I shall hear; for I am watching over you." —Eru Ilúvatar
