1420!

Greetings and salutations Orodruin. If you are looking for a broader view of Tolkien's books, or Jackson's movies, I assure you this is the place.

Halbarad has just left Hobbiton.
White Tree

Hi all. Back after a few year absence. I left shortly after the FotR came out in theatres, for reasons that may be guessed at. Now the furor has died down, so I'm back. Sad to see some of my buddies left at around the same time and haven't returned (Heren-Istarion where are you?).
Looking over the various threads I see things are largely back to normal, apart from everything being far more awesome than it was when I left.
I still have no idea how people manage to accumulate so many posts without spamming...

Anyway, I'm back.

I'm pretty new here too, guys. As you might guess, I'm from Australia! I absolutely love everything to do with the LOTR. My family has all the books and all the extended DVD's, and I love all of them. Legolas rocks!

I just realized I ought to come here and say hi.

I'm in the same boat as Halbarad- I haven't been here in a very long time, almost two years!

But I'm back. I was glad that at least a couple people recognized me from the good old days. How long will I stay? Don't know. Depends on how busy I get, but it looks like I'll be around for a few months anyway.

Encaitare, I haven't seen The Boy From Oz, but I just loved the sound of the name. Of course I changed it to fit my gender , but Hugh Jackman IS one of my favourite actors.

BTW, my name really has nothing to do with that musical/movie/whatever-you-call-it! it's just I had a sudden inspiration!

It would seem that I neglected to welcome back lord of dor-lomin! Pure accident, my good sir, I assure you but wherever are my manners?

So let me do it now... welcome back!

And a welcome back to Memory of Trees as well... pretty name!

Hello, everyone. Not new to Middle-earth at all, but haven't read a lot of the newer publications...my knowledge stops after Unfinished Tales and Silmarillian, both of which I loved.

Would love to read these other books, but unfortunately am in a part of the world where such books are almost impossible to come by and would cost an arm and a leg even if they weren't.

Have enjoyed all the new info learned from the website so far, though.

Cheers!

I am Malkatoj. I enjoy hitting people with swords and having romantic, candlelit conversations in Esperanto.

Other than that, I believe the most important thing you guys should know about me is that Sam Gamgee is my hero.
