Greetings from a new addition to the Downs. I have come to this site many times to read over various discussions, but today I finally decided to sign up so I could join in on all the fun. I'm definitely no Tolkien expert but I have read the Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, and Unfinished Tales. Plus, I own the Complete Guide to Middle-Earth and The Atlas of Middle-Earth so maybe I won't be completely useless. Anyway, I justed wanted to say hello and I look forward to being a part of this great forum.

Welcome to the downs Captain and King (interesting two titles of status, Captain and King, ha). I'm tired of saying the same greetings, or saying other peoples greetings, so hopefully this one hasn't been used yet. Enjoy your stay here in Tyrn Gorthad.

Come now, Gil-Galad! Is that all you can say to welcome the newbies? They`ve been a bit scarce lately! Hopefully it`s just because of the holidays.

Welcome Captain and King! Hope you enjoy being dead as well.

Thanks, I hope to. Oh, and I don't mind having the same greeting said to me as was previously said to someone else -- there's only so many ways you can say "Welcome"!

Elrond's_Daughter, I was wondering the same thing, but didn't want to ask. Figured I'd figure out sooner or later . . .

And Elennar Starfire, it's not so much the worms that get to me as the @#%* dirt! LOL

Hello lucyannalulu.

If you haven't, you might want to check out the HoME books.
There are some interesting, longish songs/poems otherwise
not in print, including Beren and Luthien.

Boro, do you think you could use your imagination and come up with a different greeting, instead of using the same one? Not that I have any room to talk....

Haha, I stick with the same greeting until I can think of another one, and right now I'm dried up. So, if you have any suggestions feel free to spill 'em out.

Ha!

You newbies think you can just stroll onto this forum without proving yourselves?!

You must earn the right to be called "Barrow-Downer".

To earn the title, you must complete the phantom's diabolical and torturous challenge of death!

First, you must rescue an innocent pun from the clutches of the evil Dr. Gil-Galad.

Second, you must steal three green boxes from the Terrible Trio- Saucepan Man, Davem, and Fordim.

Third, you must start twice as many threads as Boromir88.

Fourth, you must....

...start a redundant thread on Balrog wings!!!

MWU HA HA HA HA HA!!!

Only then will you be granted member status.

Truly too harsh a challenge for the newbies! Sauce will beat them over the head with a pan, davem will unleash his legions of spiders, and Fordim... well, he'll just overpower them with big words. It's too cruel!

Just kidding, guys, don't come after me...
