Here on this site I hope!

A question for those of you in Australia. What do you think of America/Americans? Go ahead and be honest, I'd really like to know.

Hiyah Fingy! Haven't we met before? Why did you loose your 'surname'?

Btw, I'm from Unquendor.

HerenIstarion, I think Georgia is considered to be European. The 'borders' between Europe and Asia being the Urals, the Caucasian Mountains, and the Bosporus.

I can tell you as a former Slavic and East European Specialist, that in U.S. academic circles, Geogia is considered to be in Eastern Europe.

Re: Georgia

I was born in Boston (Bahstin) and lived there (thayah) until 1991, a total of 30 years. I lived for a while in the South Shore (Shoah), Waltham and Brookline.

I'm from England, Buckingham*shire* if ya want to get technical, lol. I thought There would be more brits here, this board really is diverse.

I have a confession, I only started reading the Lord of The Rings in January this year. I read the Hobbit a long time ago, but never realised that LoTR was kind of like a sequel (if I'd have known it had more Bilbo in it I would have picked it up in a flash) I'd always known about it, but I think I assumed it was a bit too geeky or something (I know, I'm hanging my head in shame!) until my dad bought me the set for Christmas. Now I can't believe I didn't read it sooner, and I can't imagine what it was like not to have read it! It touched me that much. I read most of it on Holiday in The Alps in March, sitting by this snowy, fastflowing river with no-one around(yes, I'm also a hopeless sap, hehe) so the whole book is linked up with this wilderness picture in my mind and I'm now a Tolkien freak. <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Re: location

Hi and welcome to the board Galenriel.
Some here call it Tolkienist instead of Freak or Nerd - but it doesn't really matter as long as you enjoy the books <img src=smile.gif ALT=""> - If you wanna get more geeky - read the Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales - more about Elves - and no hobbits - Still the same world, just earlier!

I'm from New York...but just the state, not the city.
I'm about 2 hours north of New York City though. <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Lived here pretty much all my life, with the exception of after I was born. I lived in another part of New York...closer to the city the first 11 months of my life.

small town, USA. Otherwise Known As Hagerstown, Maryland
I grew up on a farm as well, with little to do at night, until you get your drivers license. So playing D &amp; D with my brother, magic the gathering, video games, and reading tolkien.

If I recall correctly, there was a road that went through Gettysburg PE, where the Cicil War battle was fought, called the Hagerstown road, It was a North-South Road, so I assume, it might have began or ended at your town! <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

<img src="http://www.barrowdowns.com/images/posticons/narya.jpg" align=absmiddle> Re: The Downs, an international board. Where are you from?

Hello, I am from Zoetermeer, The Netherlands, 23 yrs.

I think I was here before, but I can't remember...
Anyway, as most students, I had to read something for my English literature list, and my teacher recommended Lotr. I borrowed the book from the library (Fellowship), but upon finishing it, the second part (Towers) was already lended out. So I read the Hobbit in between. Everything became clear after that. Finishing the complete Lotr, I just HAD to read the Sil. And now I am a genuine Tolkien-freak like the rest of you (no offense, but compliments)

My knowledge for the most part comes from playing MERP, the game. I think there is no better way (apart from reading the books) for getting the 'feel' of Middle Earth. Currently, I am combining MERP with Rolemaster and AD&amp;D, making it a complete game in a Middle Earth setting. Where MERP the first edition was much to simplistic, and Rolemaster was much too difficult, I created a good mix between the both. I am now facing the hideous task of translating over 3000 spells in Quenya. All in good time, I will place all my files on the internet, for free and downloadable for all. It will be the best RPG* you've as of yet laid your eyes on!

Anyone who is interested please, feel free to correspond

* By RPG I mean RPG the real stuff, not some lame, fantasy-robbing computergame

I'm from Texas, floating around somewhere in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metromess. I love it, it's home, but it's hot. I'm jealous of you Scotlanders, I want to go there so bad! That and Ireland, since I'm of a stron Irish dicent. (Hence my inability to tan! <img src=frown.gif ALT=""> ) Alas, I digress...

I got into LOTR when I was about 8. My dad read them all to me (including the Hobbit. In fact, one of the three times I've ever seen my dad cry was when Fili and Kili died! No joke...) so they've always been special. Like some others here, I see, I've just recently experianced a Middle-earth rennasciance. Ah...
