Ahh look at all the excitement in here. I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted in this thread. So many blasts from the past, my old friends Loopy, Didi, Nim, Mono! Now all long gone it seems. Or taking an extended hiatus 8) Thought I'd have a look to see when I started posting in Newbies - Page 22 apparently! Lovely memories.

Hello newbies, you'll have a great time here. Welcome to TORC! Post well, make friends, keep smiling and have fun!

Hello, everyone!
I hope you all are doing great. This is my first post on the forum so thought to dedicate to you all! :)

I read LOTR 2 years back, The Hobbit last year (was reading again these days but had to postpone due to my exams) and The Sil too last year but it didn't get into my head properly, so shall read it again this year! :D

Calma, thank you!
By the way, if you don't mind I want to know if there are some writings related to Tolkien here. I'd love to read them.

Hello everyone...I'm new to this site but not to RP, I have just a couple of questions:

1. Is there a character sheet that I need to use to create my RP character or is this not required?

2. This goes alone with question #1, can I be any race or entity on this site?

No problem :). In fact I didn't really expect a welcome at all so this is nice being able to ease into Torc. By the way even though I haven't been here very long I've already had a really cool time on this site :TORC:.


Sorry about your illness though :(.

Postby monte williams » Thu May 21, 2015 8:31 pm

Hello, everybody! I'm a noob.

I assume I'm not half the Tolkien enthusiast you are, although I am reading The Hobbit for the fourth time; I read it in third grade, didn't understand much of anything past the first few pages, but stubbornly stuck with it for some reason. Revisited it a few years ago, then taught it to my English 9 class during my year in Pakistan, and am currently reading it to my eleven-year-old daughter for her first time.

Like I said, despite repeated readings of The Hobbit I am not a big Tolkien fan, nor even a fantasy reader (although I love Lev Grossman's Magicians series).

I'm here mostly because I bought a Bilbo action figure on clearance and unexpectedly fell in love with it, but since the new movie trilogy was generally not as well-received as the earlier trilogy, it seems the franchise is at something of a low ebb, where mainstream opinion is concerned; put simply, I registered in the hope that I'll have an outlet for my burgeoning Hobbit toy obsession.

Thanks for having me!

Cheers,

Monte

Afternoon all! Stopping by to say hi from North East England. Avid Tolkien fan a LONG time ago, but since marriage and kids and working, well, it kind of fell by the wayside, but I am intent on picking up the books again and re-immersing myself into the fabulous world he created! Although I don't have amazing amounts of free time, I really want to re read the books as well as reading some of the others I never got round to, like the History series, and the Children of Hurin. Would love to get back into the role-playing again, and might eventually get around to writing some stuff of my own, which is my eventual ambition!
