Alliance of Númenor - La dee da...

The varied peoples of Middle-earth at times found unity in their pursuits, and all too often experienced deep rifts. Engage in lively conversations as we banter about the differences between the Alliances, and recruit for our People as well. Remember, keep it friendly.

Nyx and Aragorn, welcome!!! I'm glad to see you.. *whew!* I thought nobody was comin'. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0><BR><BR> Aragorn, you're right.. Numenor is definitely the coolest place (to me) in Tolkien. Maybe because it's got that Elvish quality about it, but it's still mortal men dwelling there. I dunno.. But you've gotta love it! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR> Nyx, you like the Ringwraiths? OOooh... they're mean, those Ulairi are. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> They do have cool outfits and horses, though. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> I want to know what that screeching noise they make is. You know, like when Aragorn (not you, Aragorn..) is carrying Frodo past where the trolls are (FotR), and you hear that noise. Isn't that a Ringwraith?<BR><BR> --Alassë (my nickname)

I do like the Numenore, well before they looked to the Undying West with jelousey in their eyes, hearts and minds alike. I choose Numenore for my Allience becuase I love the Elves beauty but I am not into the whole living forever deal... I know that death is a gift not Atan's Doom. I would really like to join, I was thinking about starting a Numenore Allience Guild myself but I hadn't seen much of us Noble Folk & Elven Kin around. I hope I'll see more of us in the future!<BR><BR><BR>Blessed Be!<BR>Liadan

Ah! Two more! Excellent, excellent! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Holofin and Liadan, welcome to the Alliance of Numenor!!<BR><BR> We are very glad to have you!<BR><BR> Liadan, yeah, I know what you mean. The Númenoreans have it all, in my opinion. They live(d) in a beautiful place, and they had all the glory and splendor of the Elves, and they didn't have to live forever, but they still had a very long life. <BR><BR> There was already a Númenor alliance, but nobody had posted in it since the summer of 2002, so I figured that if I wanted a Númenor Alliance, I'd have to do it myself. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> So here we are! I'm glad there's some other Island fans.. I thought I was the only one! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR> -Alassë

Liadan, that's a pretty poem! Where did you hear that? It does seem to fit.. really well!<BR> Has anybody read the tale of Aldarion and Erendis? If so, which one made you madder? Because both of them kept themselves apart (does that make sense?). Meaning, they both had something to do with the separation. I think Aldarion made me more mad at him, but Erendis could use an attitude adjustment, too.. I don't know. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR> -Alassë

Oh.. oopsies! Sorry. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I can be SO absentminded sometimes... You'll have to excuse me. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif"border=0><BR><BR> The Aldarion and Erendis story, as well as the First Ruling Queen's tale, Ancalimë (their daughter), and some other tales of Númenor are from The Unfinished Tales. I think that is my favorite Tolkien book next to the Hobbit and the Sil. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> <BR> -Alassë

Sorry it took me so long to get back here! It's been a busy week *sigh*. My sister is getting married on Saturday, so we have our relatives down (trifle early in my opinion..), and we're cooking and just doing everything imaginable to get ready.. So *sigh* again! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR> How many of Tolkien's books have you read? I think I've read The Hobbit, all three 'Lord of the Rings' books, The Shaping of Middle-Earth, the Sil, the Book of Lost Tales #1, and Unfinished Tales. I get credit for it in school, and I never mind reading Tolkien! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR> <BR> --Lady of Andor (Alassë)

Well.. I'm kinda disappointed. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> Nobody's been to Númenor's Alliance in a good deal of time. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-crying.gif"border=0><BR> Maybe if some folks see it on the first page instead of the third, it'll kind of pick up and get going. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR> -Alassë

Of course, mithrandir!! Welcome, welcome! I didn't put Wizards in the title.. I think I ran out of room, but yes, ALL folks are welcome in Númenor. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <BR><BR> A note to everyone.. Is there anything you guys want to do here that would be a fun thing, such as maybe Númenor trivia, or something of that sort? I'd like to make it a fun place if we can.

Ai! Perhaps Númenor was not meant to be..

Elessar! Greetings! Yes, I am here, and everyone is welcome! I'm very glad to see you.. Every time I'm about to just give up on this thread EVER getting any attention, somebody comes by! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR> My nickname is Alassë, my Elvish name. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Can I call you Elessar, or do you have a different name you want me (and anyone else) to use?<BR><BR> I think Númenóreans are the best ever.. They're cooler than Elves in my opinion, though Elves are certainly neat. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> What's your favorite story about Númenor?<BR> -Alassë <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR> *Um, I'm not exceptionally gifted with computers..

mithrandir, that's ok. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> I figured you got busy, or something of that nature. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR> As for what to do with the guild, ai! I confess I am clueless. It seems to me that after so long a time, simply posting will get to be very.. monotonous. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> But I really don't have an idea that will save us from that. Do you know of anything we could do that would be cool? ALL suggestions are appreciated! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR> -Alassë

Elessar, okay! Elros you shall be! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> *heehee*<BR><BR> I like Númenor's grandeur too, but I think my favorite story is of Aldarion and Erendis, and their daughter, the first Queen. It's just so.. I don't know, but if both of them had behaved, then they could have spared themselves LOADS of grief and heartache. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0><BR><BR> I've read the Silmarillion, Lord of the Rings (all three books), Unfinished Tales, The Shaping of Middle Earth, and the Book of Lost Tales #1, and the Hobbit, so you've got me beat! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I'm hoping to get to read some more Tolkien this summer, since school's gotten rather busy right now. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> Blah..<BR><BR> Do you like to write things, Elros? I'm currently submitting two stories to TORC, and I hope, when I have more time, I can do a Númenor story. So if you liked to write, or you wanted to try, it would be neat if the people of this guild could all write a story about Númenor together. just an idea.. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR> COOLNESS! I'm working on Quenya too! And yes, thank you, if you could find my screen-name translation, that would be awesome! Where did you find your Elvish information? I don't have enough together to be very effective at learning it, I'm afraid. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> <BR><BR> -Alassë <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0>

Mithrandir, right about that! No wizards. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> But surely there was somebody in Númenor that practiced magic?
