What to do? Well, if you have any curiosities about places or people in Middle-Earth, go to the Books section and ask them. The people there are very knowledgable. Just don't ask either of the following, they've been argued over endlessly:

'Do Balrogs have wings?'

or

'What is Tom Bombadil?'

::waves at everybody:: Hi, y'all, I'm another newbie. Wandered here after finding the personality and location tests linked to another site. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] My personality says I'm most like Aragorn but also like Legolas and Merry, and my ideal location is Rivendell but I'd also like Bree or the Grey Havens according to the test(don't know how Bree got thrown in there!). Looks like a great site.

I've been reading Tolkien for several years and love the Silmarillion and others. The books are my first love, but I also enjoy the movies. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Good evening folks, not only am I relatively new to this site, but also relatively new to the net. Please bear with me while I find my way. I hope not to upset people, but if I do, please let me know. I'm big enough to handle criticism. That said, I'm off to try to find something about Tevildo. Wish me luck.

Welcome, newcomers! In answer to White Lady's question, you cannot change your forum name. The only possibility if you really want a different nick is to register anew with the new name. That means you start all over again with 0 posts. If you have any additional questions, feel free to PM me.

Hi everybody [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
I'm new myself. I kinda pride myself in that I'm not over-the-top insane about Lord of the Rings, but just fascinated by it, and I love a good discussion as much as anybody.
Apart from that, my claim to fame must be that I'm one of very few people to have leafed through the actual original manuscripts to Lord of the Rings. And yes, it was a knee-trembling moment.
I'm american, currently residing in Denamrk, and moving to Ireland in 6 months.
that should be enough said for now [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Mae govanenn!! Welcome to the Downs, everybody!! Isn't it great to be dead and rotting?

Merenwen~ It really doesn't take too long to get a lot of posts. After less than three weeks of being on the Downs, I already had over 100 posts. And Bekah hasn't been on the Downs as long as I have, and right now she has about 360 posts. But, as she said, remember to POST WELL!!

I'm a BIG fan of Lord of the Rings, both the movies and books. I'm currently about half way through the Silmarillion, and am loving it. I actually just found out about this forum yesterday, (taking the personality tests and quizzes).

I also enjoy Star Wars, drawing (I'm currently working on a Elf soldier), reading, writing (fan fics especially), riding horses, and hanging out with my friends and my 8 mo. old German Shepherd.

I'm really looking forward to posting on this message board with a bunch of other LOTR fans... (maybe 'twill give my mom a break.....) [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

I could also use some help with the Sindarin language pronounciation... I'm attempting to learn it.
