Sting NEW MEMBERS - INTRODUCE YOURSELF HERE (Part 2)

Unlike other message boards, the Barrow-Downs does not require new members to introduce themselves before posting. If you feel the need to announce your arrival, please do so here rather than opening a new thread for that purpose.

Welcome to the Barrow-Downs everyone!

Hello everyone!! I'm Orofniel, but you can all just call me Oro...(which means gold in Italien, just thought you wanted to know... [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] )I'm not Italian, though.

Hm.....what is there to tell?
Well, I love Tolkien and his books...And I'm trying to learn Quenya. I find that very interesting...I just started learning it so I can only say small sentences, but I'm hoping to learn more...

Hi, I'm a big Tolkien fan from India. I've been registered for a long time but have never come to the forums before. At least, I came once and made a couple of posts or so.

I was introduced to Tolkien 6 years ago when I was only 10. I don't mind "any" of the changes made in TTT. I think that Peter Jackson has done a great job. I'm a big fan (almost as big as Tolkien's) of Blind Guardian which is a metal band. They have recorded a whole album (Nightfall in Middle Earth) dedicated to The Silmarillion.

I am new here I joined a few days ago but time just seems to run away with me. I have looked around the Barrow-Downs Forum and I find it very interesting, the debates, theories and the magnificent Tolkien conversation you Downers have. I can not wait to be a part of it.

Hi everybody,

I've been a member for a couple of days now, and I'm already addicted to this site and forum.

Most of my collegues here think I'm weird because of my LOTR obsession, so it is nice to know that there's a lot of people like me out there!

thx [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Greetings, all.

I am new to this board, but not new to Tolkien. I've been looking around for a while, and thought I'd just stop by to say hello to everyone here.

I've read The Hobbit, LotR, the Silmarillion, the UT, and all of the histories except #11 (which I can't find!!!)

My favorite of Tolkien's works is Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth (hence my name) - it makes me cry every time I read it, from the poetry of the language and the tragedy of the story.

I'm sure I'll have fun exploring this site!

Welcome Finrod Edennil
You sound like you are very educated in the works of Tolkien. You should probably rush over to the Books forum as soon as possible, because that sounds like the place for you.

Oh my, we are already at 8183 members, how the number has increased since I came here [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
