True the boards are a bit slow these days
But you can always find some good conversations anywhere on them.
It just might take a bit before someone replies is all.
Right now the most frequented of them seems to be in the "Talk" forums.
It's more like a light conversation though.
"Manwe" is busy, too, but that can get into some heavy discussions.
Books and Movies are still active, just not like "Talk" and "Manwe"

If you follow the link in my signature,
You will come across the TVM.
It's in Talk and just a fun place to visit.
We'd love to have you drop by. :D

Travel about

Postby prmiller » Wed Aug 17, 2016 10:47 am

Now that I have greater freedom these days to come and
go about the realm that is TORC, I leave this behind:

Allow your feet to find a path
that takes you to a brand new door;
do not rein in your appetite
for Bardic beers...there's always more!
The folk who often visit here
know where the ebb and flow of life,
so bring your harp and come and sing
and bring your flagon, plate, and knife!

Always glad to be here,
Parm :)
Hooray for the joys of June!

Hello Everyone!

I am new here and I would like to say hi :) I have been here just for a moment, but I can see this is a great forum.
Is here anybody from Poland? It would be great.

Hail and well met, nowak1! :D
Happy to have you with us.
Don't know if anyone is from Poland any more.
Used to have Rodia, but she's been absent for quite awhile.

Hope you like it here.
Have fun and I'll see you around the boards!

Hi! I recently rewatched the trilogy for the first time in forever and it's prompted me to read stuff such as the Silmarillion. This seemed like a good place to talk about all things Tolkien related so yeah, here I am! Nice to meet everyone!

Hi all. I'm re-reading LOTR at the moment; I don't know how many times I've read it, over the last 40 years, but I've worn out a couple of paperback editions, and now I have the 50th Anniversary Edition, a hardback box set, which includes a "Reader's Companion." The Companion is quite interesting, but I don't always agree with the comments - I keep writing margin notes in it!

I'm not a fan of the Jackson films. I thought the casting was mainly good, and they are visually stunning, but PJ took too many liberties with the plot for my liking. I accept that anyone dramatising the books will have to edit, because there is just too much in the books to use it all. But I can't see any justification for inserting new material which Tolkien never wrote. As dramatisations go, I prefer the BBC Radio version from the 1980's. I felt that that stayed closer to the spirit of the original.

I look forward to chatting about the novels here.

Thanks for the welcome, Ladykat and Calma.

In view of both your signatures, it's probably relevant to say that I am also a cat owner... :)

Hello everyone

I just want to stop by and tell you what wonderful work you are doing here! Thank you.
I've been an avid fan of Lord of the Rings (books and films) for a looooong time (so much so that I lived in New Zealand for the past 5 years) but I've never gotten around to come on the board here and actually post anything.

But now I'm hoping I will find some more time to read through everything (ok, maybe not everything) here and find some like minded people.

Hey Barfrau welcome to this site. If you have any questions then you can probably either go to the adoption forum which I think is still active or you can just ask some of the more experienced posters here. Also I'll answer any questions I can. Welcome to Torc. :TORC:
