So, new digs huh? And so tastefully decorated. :thumbsup:

Welcome, Fëalócë! What a lovely polite person you seem. We can soon fix that here. :evilaugh: Don't struggle too much against the duct tape, it tends to rub the skin... :roll:

Maybe we should hog-tie the wench as she seems to have flitted off again... :shock:

Hehehe, Tooks! Do you feel like you should go to the naughty corner when someone uses your full name? :nono: :wink:

ST, how was the exam?

Okay, I'm compiling a Christmas card list for this year. I think I have most peoples, but some like Iris and Parm, may have changed. Also need to check the spelling of Tyg's street with someone else who received a card. Is it an O or a C? :doh:

Whoa! someone at work just sprayed their desk with cleaning stuff. It smells, giving me a bit of a sinus headache!

Hey, nl! :hihi:
How are things down under?

I see you've met our newest member.
She's just trying to be polite, being that it's her first day and all.
Just wait until she gets her sea legs. :wink:

Hey, someone's got her first sword.
Keep it up, kiddo. You're doing great.

I'm dog tired today.
Think I'll turn in early.
Have a good evening/morning/afternoon.

Welcome Fëalócë!!! :hug:

I see you have met most everyone already and that you are getting around quite nicely. To get the sword all you had to do was post 10 posts around the boards. You will get three more swords before you have to trade them in for a Silmaril (50) posts, then you go to the boobie shields for 100 but in the mean time you will earn another 4 swords with the Silmaril.

So it is a sword for every 10 posts
a Silmaril for 50
a Boobie shield for 100
a Horse Shield for 500
a Spikey shield for 1000
a Mariners shield for 5000
a ring for 10,000

So you can see how many I have to know where I sit around here. ;) No where special just a busy poster over the years. :D Mae Govannen dear!!!

Hey Frelga darlin, :hihi: I need your address to put on my Christmas List too. I lost everything so have just a few that I have gotten this month already.

You People are Incredible!

As swift as thought, with star-shine speed,
yes, with alacrity, indeed,
this brand-new place takes on the air
of folks who have lived long in there.
The posts appear as breaths of glee,
filled with this season's gaiety,
and I, with mud-stained boots and cloak,
find respite with this merry folk.
You people are incredible!
Creating mirth indelible.
Though I may have some skill with rhyme,
you people seem to master time.
Hooray for this new happy spot,
and for the friends each has has got!

Blessings,
Parm :)

:hihi: Fëalócë - welcome to the madness. (You'll soon discover that "tranquil" is not a word used to describe this place! :evilaugh:)

nl, about Tygs' address: on my envelope it looks like an "O". (And a quick Google comes up with that road in that place, so I think it's an "O".)

I'm now going to stagger off to bed, but shall return later and sort out the Christmas card list. :)

Bye! :hihi:

Edited to add:

  • Rose
  • rowan
  • nl
  • Vana

No relation to him/her ??? My eyes are bleeding after reading this blasphemy ! It's even worst for me, as I'm working everyday with part of this so inventive elf's work... You have to read more, Fëalócë... The Silmarillion is a good starting point after The Hobbit and the LOTR (tell me you read them already at least... if you didn't, better not telling me, I could need intensive care to recover...)

Nevertheless, I should be able to forgive you someday, and in the meanwhile I join everybody here to welcome you and I hope you'll enjoy your trip with us !

SilverScribe wrote:Isildime, how is the poll on the nickname going?

Well, as we could expect, nobody answered yet, and probably nobody will ! I'll post the suggestions I received here, to see if it helps people to tell what they think... :roll: And for now, I only received here diminutive suggestions, no nicknames... but I guess people will need to know me more before being able to suggest nickname ! I try to imagine myself giving nicknames for all of you, and I know I could not for now ! With diminutives it's easier.


And Heliona, what is this card stuff ? You send Christmas cards to these TORCers every year ? I mean real cards in the real world ? How sweet from you ! I started to do some calligraphy stuff (an inevitable interest when working with Tengwar, which offer so many possibilities !), and I started to do my own Christmas cards this year because of that... it's funny, but a bit long, and I have a high respect for people who send cards to all their friends and relatives each years (even if they don't do all the cards by themselves ! I was just doing nothing, except a couple of email greetings before).
Concerning the Official Tengwar Transcription Thread - VI
To all the newbees, Welcome to TORC !
Before posting anything on this thread, READ THE INTRODUCTION. For now, I didn't have the time to update the intro, so I let you read the intro of thread #IV here.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the threads or by email (isildilme@hotmail.com - write "Tengwar" somewhere in the subject in case you fall in my junkmail, because if I don't know, I wont open the message !). Note that I don't accept transcription requests by email, you have to post them here !

You can address yourself to me in French, Spanish or English as you wish.


Special message : I have now two precious sons. They are my priorities, and an additional explanation for the delays in my answers. I WILL answer you... but you might have to wait. Thank you for your comprehension.

Now, I don't mean to be picky but isn't there one too many "has"s in that last line? =:)

I'm glad you're enjoying the community here Fëalócë, it is a rather unique place and we're all rather fond of it our ownselves. ;) I hope you continue to feel welcomed and explore more of the site. :D

I think you'll fine the better response here, Isildime . . . my impression of the Language forum (whenever I cruise through there to ooooh and aaaaah over some of the transcriptions) is that it's mostly populated by folks who come in, get some work done and then leave. I don't think it's as "social" a place as Talk mostly because the focus there is supposed to be languages and not just chin wagging. :D

Ack! Christmas Cards! :shock:

That means that Christmas is coming . . . fast. :shock:

I need more coffee . . .

I must confess that my reaction was similar, however we shall just have to introduce Fëalócë to the joys of The Silmarillion. :)

Yes, quite a few of us do now. Obviously, I send cards to the TORCers that I have met in real life, but those of us that frequent Talk also send out Christmas cards to those people who want them. :) Last year I even sent out some smashed up biscuits/Christmas cookies (they weren't smashed when they went in the post, I promise!) but this year I unfortunately don't have the time to do the baking. :(
