Greetings!

I'm Jubal, known in realspace as James: I run the Cambridge Tolkien Society (and hold the august title of Steward of Gondor as a result!) and am generally muchly a Tolkien geek. I particularly seem to specialise in knowing & speculating excessive amounts about Dwarves, about whom I have written several papers etc. :)

Greetings, Jubal! Welcome to TORC. :)
Image<-- Are you looking for me? It's Squirrel Month in the TVM!

Life is short; break the rules, forgive quickly; kiss slowly; love truly; laugh uncontrollably; and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Grab a chance and you won't be sorry for the might-have-beens. - Arthur Ransome

Just because I have the vocabulary of a well-educated sailor doesn't mean I'm not a lady.

Hi! I'm hoping to learn a lot more about this magical and extensive legendarium.

So far I'm loving this site's academic mindset, and thoughtful, intelligent replies. Glad to be here with you fine people.

Hello.
I'm professional artist in early thirties and long time fan of Tolkien's works. Nature lover, trekkie, whovian and observer type, which is why I had to register again, as my first account made few years ago disappeared, because getting to write first post took me so long I forgot. I try to be more active this time, let's hope for the best.

Hello! I am Sam, female here. I'm not much of a talker but I might be able to join in some discussion rather than lurking around. I am also a Tolkien fan, obviously and would like to learn more about the Middle Earth in my stay here. Hope to make friends with fellow fans too. Please take care of me! :)


P.S. How do I get to change my dp?

Welcome to TORC, lurker.tomato!
Always good to see a new face on the boards.

Sorry, you can't change a dp,
But you can use your edit button in the top right corner
To delete the words and put something else in there.
Most just put an "oops" in the space.
You're not the first to double post and you won't be the last.

See you around the boards!

Greetings folks. I am a wobbly old wizard (with staff) that first read JRRT when Led Zepplin sang; "Gollum and the evil wargs crept in and slipped away with herher." <L> I am a happily married, (blessed in Spirit really) markkur of all trades, that is fighting a serious dragon. I am a long time Poet and newer wannabe writer. Tolkien is my earthly Hero; not by his awesome books only but moreso his academic excellence covering Myth, Language and all things Faery/Creation.

Whether the Professor did the same idk but one late enjoyment of mine is perusing Ordinance-Survey Maps. I have found when I read archaic lit, it is a wee enhancement to track a story with these old maps; with the elevations, I get a better knowledge of the land and also see many interesting place names.

Happy New Year to one and all!

I've been a Tolkien fan for eons it seems and, while I am a member of a number of other Tolkien-based sites, for some reason I just never got around to joining this one.

My favourite book is the Silmarillion and I like to represent the darker side of things; hence the name. :) I look forward to spending time perusing the threads and getting to know other members of the site.

Hi! I'm new!

My name is Liz and I'm from Australia. I haven't been on a board in a while, let alone being a newbie! I was previously a member of The One Boards, which was unfortunately overrun by bots and had to be put to rest. I was Peregrin, a Hobbit there.

I've been a fan of Lord of the Rings only since 2002. I saw the trailer for The Two Towers on TV and wanted to see it. I didn't (at the time) know it was the second film of three films. I soon found out and asked for The Fellowship of the Ring on VHS (yes, VHS!!) for Christmas of 2002. I watched it and then went to see The Two Towers at the cinema. I got the books, read them and loved them!!! I guess I haven't looked back since then! I've loved the Hobbit movies too and can't wait to see what's next!!
