Greetings, Orlando. Yes, we're all dead and in various stages of decay. But we're happy about it because we're morbid little wights.

Egads, it smells in here...

Oh Lordy Loo! Now we've got Agents in this system!? It's the crossover to end all crossovers. Can you imagine...LOTR and The Matrix...can it be done?

Don't look at any of the welcomers. It is a fact that dead corpes stop smelling after awhile, so it must be the Newly deceased.

Welcome all, look forward to seeing you in my favourite threads.

Hi...

Hi all, I'm Kira, i'm new to LOTR boards. I've been looking at the boards and i don't think i nearly as much about Tolkien etc as some of the people on here...slightly intimidating, but oh well. I blame any ignorance on my youth.

A warm welcome to Achuwen and Vagabond, hope you enjoy your deaths! And don't worry, the worms don't bother you . . . . much.

Kira, don't worry about your "ignorance". That's what these boards are all about -- learning more about the works of Tolkien! Don't worry, you'll catch on!

Welcome, Vagabond! Don't be intimidated by the uber-intelligence you see some of our more esteemed members exude. It's not as if they're snobby about it, and don't worry, you'll learn.

Welcome - and yes they are scary - it was about 6 weeks before I found the courage even to suggest an answer to a quiz question but even the scariest ones are very kind and encouraging

Welcome to the Downs, Morquen.

Unlike a Chat Room, it often takes a while for someone to respond to your post in a Discussion Forum, so you may need to wait a little bit. In the meantime, it's worth reading a few of the threads here to get a feel for the place - and the forum FAQs, if you haven't already.

Edit: Link to Forum FAQs

Welcome, Morquen!

Your screename is derived from two words in Quenya- morë meaning 'black' and quen meaning 'one' or 'someone'. Therefore, your name means '(The) Black One'. Very nice .
