White Tree Hi guys :)

Hi. I'm new here, but I want to tell you a little about me:

I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led. And through the air, I am he that walks unseen. I am the clue-finder, the web-cutter, the stinging fly. I was chosen for the lucky number. I am he that buries his friends alive and drowns them and draws them alive again from the water. I came from the end of a bag, but no bag went over me. I am the friend of bears and the guest of eagles. I am Ringwinner and Luckwearer; and I am Barrel-rider.

Just kidding I have read the Hobbit, and I am almost through The Two Towers. I am very happy to have joined you guys here.

So I guess you could say I'm a typical Tolkien fan Tolkienology ftw!

Welcome, Barrel-rider!

One thing I've definitely come to believe since I joined the Downs is that there is no such creature as a 'typical Tolkien fan'. Here we seem to have them all: the learnéd, the eclectic, the young, the old, the in-between. Movie-fans, and movie-not-fans.

Enjoy yourself!

White-Hand Welcome!

Welcome to the Downs, Barrel-rider!

Like Inziladun, I found since joining Tolkien fandom that us fans come in all shapes and sizes, although I don't think there are any dragons among us; so no one will miss a cup...

Welcome, Barrel-rider! Your barrel has brought you to the right port. Any pickled Dwarves to declare? Otherwise proceed and enjoy being dead.

Like Zil and Faramir said, Downers come in infinte diversity and infinite combinations, and the only typical Tolkien thing about all of us is, well, being Tolkien fans. You'll fit in fine.

White Tree Welcome Greybeard

Welcome! Glad you decided to join us! I'm a relatively new fan myself, though I am inspired by Tolkien's works. Hope you enjoy your stay!

Hello! I used to visit this forum a lot around 2003, when I read Lord of the Rings for the first time. My favorite area was the humor thread. I'm glad to see that the Barrow Downs are still around.

Welcome back, Shire Flower.

Now, just to bring you up to date- these days we have a rule that all new (or long absent) members must sign up for the next available Werewolf game, or face permanent banning. We are very strict about this.

You can read about the rules here.
