Silmaril So who's still around?

I guess I fall back into the 'back after a long absence' category.

Long absence being about 3 years!

But I was feeling nostalgic and was compelled to visit.

Well, I'm still around for one! And I'm still actively moderating, so I'll move this thread to the Barrow-Downs forum, where it will join others that concern our membership rather than discussions of Tolkien's works.


Welcome back, Varda!

Oh yes. I'm still here too. After being abandoned for years and years and years. I love this site and I get kicked off! If it makes you feel any better just know that during my sabatical I was always watching you lot and smiling
I love this place. And now we have a Hobbit movie it's time to convert an old friend back to the 'Downs!

Well hey there, V.

Gosh, the 6th year anniversary of me joining the site is coming up, and I do pop in here every so often. Mostly to read.

Hope you're doing well.

Every so often. A little stiff and worn now that age is starting to press down on me but still reading. And looking for that perfect rpg to be in....

I dont want to start a thread, but as my sig says I will not be around much for a while, and hopefully it is soon when I get to post properly on this thread. Just thought I would say my temporary goodbye before bolting without a word!

Wow, some of you have been here forever. That's awesome.
I joined in... 2003, I believe. I had a different name and for some reason it stopped letting me post. I don't post much any more, but I am here.

Good to see you drop in. Your contributions to rpgs are missed. Remember Corsairs and Corsets?

I still come by every now and then and launch a mortar barrage of posts and disappear again.

Oh, it feels so right to be back. It's been a while... But hey, 5 years seem to fade away when you come back and find same old faces once again.
Seems I have to do some reading first before I can even start dreaming of posting myself - but I'll be around. Hope there'll be time for an RPG, too
(though I can only hope Child has forgiven I deserted her without explanations during our co-owned Shire game... ).

I poke my nose in from time to time. You do get to missing the old place.
