I was gone on vacation for a month and now I'm back. My, how everything has changed! New members, new threads, new posts. I suppose I was just naively (sp?) imagining that time would stop here at the Downs and I would come back to it exactly as I left it.





Wow, it's good to be back...

Don't worry, Ohtatyaro. I think we all get past the newbie stage amazingly fast....some of use didn't even wait a week after being welcomed before they started being a welcomer *whistles nochalantly....*

I'm sure you'll post exceedingly well, Witchking, even if you have completely overwhelmed us with your loquaciousness here. Kidding, kidding...no, seriously, posts should be written wisely which I think you will do. Unlike me... So welcome to the Downs, have fun being dead, enjoy the conversations you'll get into and show the utmost respect to our beloved mods. We all have great fun here, and if you need any help, we're almost all friendly, and you can PM me if you want to ask any questions. Or anybody else, for that matter.

Oh, and read the FAQ before. It may help. That goes to everyone...

Cheers,

Silmaril yes. yes, yet another noob.

I usually go to tolkienonline.com, and have recently joined with entmoot as well, but am still serching for more. I'm sure that this site will be just as good as the others.

Hope you all won't mind a girl who's looking for help in keeping her devoution to Tolkien books and not totally fall into Rowling fandom.

See you around the boards!

I'm not exactly a new member as you all can see -- but I haven't been on the Downs for the longest time and I feel like a newbie. Certainly many things have changed since the mentioned 'renovation' of the forum and I'd just like to say hi to those active members who have been posting.

Hi, I'm known (to you people) as Vlakorados. Well, there's not much for me to talk about for now.

I suppose I should tell you that Saraphim is my sister. Everyone laugh at how she spelled her name wrong. *laughs*

Well, elronds_daughter, there are three years between my brother and myself. I've tried to keep him off of the Downs for as long as I've been on, but I suppose it was only a matter of time until he caught on and joined up.

What he supposes to do, I'm not sure. I'm starting to be afraid, given his track record out here.

Just don't act like an idiot, Vlaky, and you'll be fine.

Welcome, The riders of Rohan! I'm curious.... are you, by any chance, skizophrenic? Your name seems to imply that there are more than one of you... Anyway, I hope you enjoy being dead. Most of the rest of us have found no problem with it so far, except that we tend to alarm our non-dead friends.
And Hobbits do indeed rule.

Cheers!

Silmaril I'm back!

I've been busy with other stuff, so I haven't had too much time to visit the Downs. I see we have some new members here. I'm still quite new myself, but welcome anyway!
I'm pretty lucky in the sibling area. My sister (who is a year younger than me) can't stand anything to do with LOTR, so she definitely won't be bothering me here.
Adieu for now.

Ah, well, my younger sister is yet to read Tolkien (funny how over a thousand pages of very small type in a book the size of the yellow pages can put one off...), and my older sister doesn't have much interest in computers or the internet, and wouldn't touch forums with a barge pole - to which of course, you could reply 'whose got a barge pole?!'

Riders of Rohaan - ah, a hobbit man! So The Saucepan Man has a fan? Interesting... Welcome.

Vlakorados - ooh, this could be interesting...*evil* And hey, I like her name - your sister's an excellent writer and RPGer, by the way - don't suppose it run's the family...? I mean, you know, if you wanted to drop by The Shire and try it out...*shamelessly plugging the RPG forums*

Shia'tan - lol, an interesting self-description! Hmm, I wouldn't bother coming to Merry Olde England really...the weather is up and down like nobody's bsuiness at the moment. You like rain, right? No, sorry, sorry...welcome to the Downs.

Mattius - *mouth drops open* Good lord, the dead are rising! Mattius, welcome back, how are you? Ooh, excellent, 'tis all well... Welcome back, my friend, welcome back!

Arie - welcome back to you as well - like Mattius said, 'it's all for the best'. You'll get used to it again - welcome back.

Oh, I wish there wasn't a smiley limit on each post...

Hello everybody, and welcome to all the newbies (and welcome back all y'all other peoples)! Especially-The riders of Rohaan and Vlakorados! Sibling rivalry... I wonder how many siblings we actually happen to have on here? Anyways, I'm back, and I hope everyone had a safe summer so far!

White-Hand Greetings

Greetings fellow Tolkien fans, I have been looking around the Barrow Downs now for some weeks and finally decided to join.

I have been reading Tolkien’s works for around 20 years now and in that time I have built up a nice collection of books based on Middle Earth. I have an extensive library starting with my favourites the Sil, hobbit, LOTR, HoMe; I also have many books written by other authors on Tolkien works. I hope that over time I can share my love of Tolkien with you all.

Hi, Namo Mandos! Welcome to the Downs. With a name and avatar like that, you fit in perfectly.

I'm also a long time book collector. The stuff sure piles up over the years!

Come down and introduce yourself in character at the Green Dragon Inn in the Shire. We'd love to see you.
