Hello and welcome to the Barrow Downs, Idril Groenblad.

The barrow downs being the burial mounds of the ancients in LOTR, well, we just naturally assumed we are all ... dead ... and under the dreadful spell of the Barrow Wight. There be treasures buried here, too, at the edge of the perilous Old Forest.

The treasures include not only discussion threads, games, and fanfiction, but role playing also. If you are interested, hike over to the forum The Shire and visit the Green Dragon Inn for some creative spelunking in Middle-earth.

Bthberry,
Moderator for Rohan, the intermediate role playing forum

What do you mean with 'enjoy being dead'?
Erm, since we're all on the Barrow Downs, we tend to think of ourselves as lesser wights who are slaves to the great Barrow Wight. The fact is, all wights are the ghosts of deceased persuns... however, it's nothing to complain about. My post-mortem is much more fun than my life was, I assure you, and I'm quite sure yours will be too, as long as you adhere to the policies of the forum. Have a nice afterlife!

Ithaeliel, it's good to see you back around the Downs again!

Ah, Bethberry...Idril, she makes it out to be such a bad thing, most misleading! Welcome to the Barrowdowns and, now you understand what we mean, enjoy being dead.

Erebrandir - Back off when you mention it? Hmm, well, certainly it won't be us doing the backing off..Welcome to Downs. May we lead you in dark places.

Marared - woah, since '87! You almost qualify for the 'Coming of Age' thread - those who have read Tolkien for 18 years or more. Ach, maybe you can sneak in a little early... Hope you enjoy it here.

Hmm, now why can't I post smileys...

1420!

Right then... *pulls fold-out chair closer to circle*

My name is Quicksilver_Sprite, and I first read Tolkien at the piddling age of six or seven, though my mother had previously read it to all of the children several times. On my ninth birthday, I recieved a paperback copy of LotR, but did not get further than the third page of the first chapter for quite a few years. As I grew older, my reading habits became more voracious, and at the mention of the much-hyped FotR movie, I decided that the time had come to once again pick up LotR. So, slowly and carefully, I made my way through it, digesting it and remembering the magic of Middle-Earth from my younger years.

Currently, I'm trying to write a piece of orginal fiction, fit in Algebra II and World History, and retain the shattered pieces of sanity still in my grasp. (siblings will do that to you)

Hi!

just about me.....

Hello my name is Lothiriel (I wish I was really her!) I have a big crush on Eomer. I love to read fanfiction and write and of course draw! I began reading The Lord of The Rings about 3 years ago when my boyfriend Shawn (who by the way has a striking resemblance to Celeborn....wierd) suggested them to me. Well I read it and loved it and later read the Hobbit, Silmarillion, and Unfinished Tales. Something really strange you might know is that I always read the end first, the think it makes the books better go figure... Anyway, I am also a big fan of the movies, they did an amazing job with it.
Okay, so really I only wish I was the queen of Rohan and spent my childhood on the beautiful beaches of Dol Amroth.... really my name is Andrea (I go by Andi) I am fairly tall and skinny with long brown hair and green eyes. I am 16 and live in Kentucky. I used to be in competitive gymnastics and have danced all my life. I used to want to be a dancer but recently changed my mind because I became borderline anorexic a few years ago and I don't think its a very good field for me ( yeah life sucks and nothings ever perfect) anyway.. now I want to be a writer and illustrator.
I absolutely love anything Tolkien or Lord of the Rings....don't know what I'd do without it....
well if you read that, wow! hehe I tend to get real wordy.... hope to talk to you around the boards... I am a little shy though.....well byebye!

Welcome one and all!

Well, Lothiriel94, I take it you enjoy writing! Come check out the Are YOu Writing Serious FAntasy Part II thread. It has quite a few interesting conversations, and you might be interested if you write fantasy. If you write FAn Fiction, there is also a FAn Fiction place on the 'Downs...basically, there's a place for everyone! Have fun being dead! It's a blast!

Lothiriel94,

If you like writing, you may also want to check out the Shire and the Green Dragon Inn. You can introduce yourself in character and later join an RPG.

Welcome to the Downs.

Suilad! I am Bethelarien Lothmiriel, the Jewel-flower. I am quite excited to be here, and hope to both have fun and contribute here at this site.

A few little tidbits about myself...I am a writer. I love to write, whatever it is, it doesn't matter, but mostly fantasy. I do poetry on occasion, but it takes something...rather emotional to get me to do so.

I sing. I enjoy singing very much, and I've been told I'm good at it. Whatever.

I also act. I have acted in several roles, from Juliet to a French *ahem* dancer named Fifi. Okay, not quite a dancer, but.... Anywho, I enjoy it very much!

A quick question, one which has likely been asked and answered many times before--how does one go about obtaining an avatar? I would very much like one.

Thanks so much!

Hello, glad to have you here Bethelarien! We have several discussions about writing going right now that you may be interested in. First check out Are You Writing Serious Fantasy II and then go to Writer's Out There - What About Gender? . Oh, and don't forget about roleplaying! Start at The Green Dragon in The Shire.
As for an Avatar, check out the FAQ Page. For a good LOTR one, try www.lordoftherings.net. You can have any type you want though.
Hope you enjoy being dead!

Hello, fellow dead ppl! now that i'm one of you, i guess i should introduce myself. I am currently the functioning 'Evenstar of Country Folks', just because there's no one else to fill the void, i guess... there is too much about me to say here without sounding self-centered. (not an image i exactly want ) but i think i'll actually like being dead ~LoL~

Hello Everybody!

I'm a new one here, too. And yes, I have read Lotr, and The Hobbit, and Sil many, many times.

I have already studied some of your discussions as a guest. And I've been glad to share your knowledge and good points about the Tolkienity.

That will be enough for an opening speech! Except that please excuse any flaws with my English, it's not my native language. (Sindarin is, of course! )

Hey guys! I'm new here(hence why I'm posting in this thread). I LOVE LOTR's. I've read the trilogy about 7 or 8 times and the hobbit twice. I tried to read the Sil.... but I fell asleep. Way too much like a history book for me.

But anyways, I've been going to barrowdowns for a while for the name generator and such. But today I found out about this forum from Eowyn Skywalker who had recently joined a Star Wars RPG I'm a part of. So here I am!

I normally don't double post, but here I am....
I will be gone from home for a little over a month and I really don't know how much time I'll have on the internet, so a big hello to all future members!


P.S.- I know a lot of members try to visit this thread every now and then, so would everyone tak a gander at the Books forum, even if you are normally an anti-book forum person? There is a read-along group starting up, and EVERYONE is invited! The plan is to read a chapter of LOTR a week and discuss it. (every last detail that we all love !!) Thank you!

Hi, all! I'm Audreidi...well, obviously...
I joined up because, while I consider myself a relatively avid Tolkien fan, I don't know as much about Lord of the Rings as I do Star Wars. I've got a little bit of brushing-up to do (as well as actually buying the books, though I have some really nice posters) so I thought Barrow-downs would be a good site to sign up on.
Um...yes...I got referred by a certain Eowyn Skywalker, my good Padawan.

Hello everybody I am new here at the barrowdowns forum but I have visited the site frequently.
Well....a short presentation then. My name is Marcus and I come from a country which lies in northern regions of Europe. Yes that is right I am a swede

I am only 17 years old so therefore I am still a student. My maine subjects are social science and languages.
In my spare time I like to hang out with friends but that I seldom do, instead I am home and studying.

I have read the lord of the rings trilogy several times(3), the hobbit one time, The silmarillon two times at least!, the book of lost tales (1 and2)
Part from that I have also read different articles about JRR Tolkien and his life.
I consider myself a true Lord of the rings fan and I am pretty sure I have decent knowledge about the books and middlearth.

My main interest in middlearth is the valar, I find them very intersting beacuse they posses such great power.

At this forum I hope to learn a lot more about middlearth and the various cultures that exists there.

Yours sincerely/ Marcus.

Welcome to the Barrow-downs, Marcus, and Audriedi... enjoy being dead... mwha-ha-ha-ha. I know that I have, anyhow. *giggles*

Okay, enough with the... ummm... formalities... and now I must demand how on Earth you made it to the Barrow-downs without me noticing, master! *glares, and hides garlic pizzas that she WAS using to take over Barrow-downs with...* (And to the uninformed, which should be about everyone, it's a joke between Jandalf/Audriedi and I that I'm her 'Padawan'. Insane one, I might add... with garlic... anyone who was at the Barrow-downs birthday party would've noticed that...)

And Marcus, you will learn here... the Barrow-downs is the most informitive site on the internet when it comes to Tolkien, and that's saying a LOT!!! You'll like it here, or my name isn't' Eowyn Skywalker!!

Mwha-ha-ha... I'm no longer a newbe... giggle.

Hullo!
Ive been lurking here since January and have finally decided to join the ranks of the dead. I love this site, it is definitely the best Tolkien-related forum Ive been to. Im 14, and am a newbie to Tolkien, only having read LotR last Christmas, but since then Ive re-read it three times and also The Hobbit twice, The Silmarillion twice, and I bought UT recently and will certainly read it soon.

My nickname is from Quickbeam's song about the rowan trees. I really like the sound of it, and was surprised it hasn't already been taken.

Firefoot has been trapped in the Barrow!
Welcome to the Downs, Carnimri! I like your name, and I think you'll enjoy UT.

Enjoy being dead!

Yes, welcome! It's actually fun being dead once you get used to the whole disimbodied voice thing... giggle. Also, being a blue wraithy thing isn't that bad either, I mean, Obi-Wan survived.

Oh... yeah... I'm suppose to be welcoming people.. sorry. Anyhow, welcome to the Downs!!!!

How long does it take to stop being a newbee anyhow? Giggle.

Welcome, welcome... Live long and prosper. Or not... more appropriately for this place, die young and stay long. To all newbies, welcome, and may you enjoy your death.

A tip for all, whether ye be young or old, new... or not...: Don't be afraid of the Books Forum. We may talk like boring old teachers who know more than is probably healthy about LotR, but we really are nice people. Don't let the 'academic' speech intimidate you, just throw in your own two cents. Chances are good that it'll be appreciated.

If you aren't into the book-style stuff, I heartily suggest haunting Middle Earth Mirth for a few laughs.

....Um, actually, if you don't think that you can write book style posts, be afraid of the Books section, because someone'll rate your posts down... stick to Middle-earth Mirth... *giggles* That's my haunt... so... much... fun. Also, don't feel intiminated by the RPG section's high standards... it's really quite easy, you know. (Plus, when I first started, I knew NOTHING about RPing... Barrow-downs is a great place to learn how to role play!). Welcome all the new people! May the Force be with you... or, maybe, may the RING be with you... snrk.

But don't be too afraid to post... most of us don't bite, and our bark isn't that bad either... it's the really REALLY oldbe's that you'll have to worry about... the one's who think that there's no need for mods, because they know everything... sigh.

Mae govannan!
