Audiobooks

For years now on account of my job I have found myself with more time and headspace to listen than to read and so of course I have delved the available Tolkien audiobooks but honestly some of them are not to my taste. I expected far more from the Serkis versions to be honest and regretted paying the...

Re: Dwarven Totem Animals/Nature

Can we make Eofor an honorary Dwarf?? Cimrandir is engaging in wordplay shenanigans with you - Eofor means 'boar' in Old English. So rather than an honourary dwarf I am content to be a dwarven totem. Certainly the job description seems suitable for Eofor. Wreck shit, muck up the watering hole (i.e....

Re: On How Strictly the Society's Standards Are To Be Adhered To

Eofor - you have especially echoed my own EXACT feelings about this hobby, and precisely how I try to personally run my local group of Rangers and Tolkien enthusiasts here in Colorado! In fact, if you don’t mind, I may quote you directly in future when and if the subject comes up Of course not, the...

Re: On How Strictly the Society's Standards Are To Be Adhered To

What Greg said. The boards here are a very safe space and even if I see something that I personally don't like, don't think fits or is just plain wrong for middle earth I would never come out and openly condemn it. It's elitist, I've seen that approach in reenactment and I think it's counter-product...

Not really a fan of this look and doubly so if it's just a camp knife.
I wear mine around the neck or stow it in my satchel and it's ever been easy enough to reach in a hurry.

You should be rightly proud of what you've achieved with your local group Manveruon, this looks like a huge amount of fun.

Re: Shield of Eofor

Progress update on the shield project - Shield clasps are done and on their way to me. There was a change made to the design as the previous design would have had much smaller detail making the horses harder to make out. Next step will be the shaping of the board though I will wait until I have all ...

Re: MERF Random Adventure Pictures

It’s funny you should mention this, because the last time I was out and about with folks in full kit (when we did the visit to the Breckenridge Troll, incidentally), there was a kid in the parking lot incessantly yelling, “Look! Star Wars! Star Wars! Look! People dressed as Star Wars!” Did you beat...

Re: Forum update discussion

For my part i think that now, being on the other side of the RoP release that we haven't seen any great increase in membership either here or on the Facebook group and so can safely say that a surge isn't coming. I still think that some tidying and change is due but let us wait for Jack to have a lo...

Here are the proposed changes to the forums for which there seemed to be a modicum of support. Please bear in mind that I have no idea how involved some of these are and am just distilling the previous thread. I have numbered and grouped them to make discussion easier, if I have missed anything then...

Re: Thoughts on Dwarven meat and cuisine?

There is this from the Silmarillion but of course Mîm and Ibun are petty Dwarves In the waning of the year Mîm the Dwarf and Ibun his son went out from Bar-en-Danwedh to gather roots in the wild for their winter store; and they were taken captive by Orcs. For my part I always assumed that the Dwarve...
