Re: THE FANTASY RANGER - Historical Origin And Most Effective Weapons (Video)

I don’t want to harsh anyone’s mellow here but from a historical perspective, Shad is full of crap. I hold him in pretty high disdain and wish less people would listen to him. He is egotistical and doesn’t admit when he is wrong which is frequent. He doesn’t back up anything with sources which is t...

Re: When and Where should the term 'Ranger' be applied?

‘Do you really mean that Strider is one of the people of the old Kings?’ said Frodo in wonder. ‘I thought they had all vanished long ago. I thought he was only a Ranger.’ ‘Only a Ranger!’ cried Gandalf. ‘My dear Frodo, that is just what the Rangers are: the last remnant in the North of the great pe...

Re: When and Where should the term 'Ranger' be applied?

- of (mostly) Dunedain extraction - who serve the Steward of Gondor or the Chieftain of the northern Dunedain (or arguably their designated vassal authorities) - who typically work in wilderness environments - who typically work as irregulars I definitely like this. That fits well...particularly th...

Re: Forums Miscellaneous Media Forum Lord of the Rings TV Series Gets Amazon Premiere Date, First Look (Articl

YOU AND YOUR ELVEN EYES! ... of course you're right. :mrgreen: ...which could be a good thing, could be a bad thing. I've decided at this point I'm just not going to pass judgment until I physically see them screw something up. I don't have high hopes, but at least it's a lovely image, with good po...

By the landscape and vaguely WETA-Gondorian architecture, I'm assuming that's Annúminas?
I see the trees in the background, not a Sun. I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be Valinor.

Re: What's with all the spambots getting in?

The spam posts are coming in at a rate that isn't excessive, which tells me they aren't robots. When we've had robots in the past, we get dozens a DAY, and these have been isolated accounts...which makes me believe they were isolated account applications. Odd, but not uncontrollable. We have securit...

When and Where should the term 'Ranger' be applied?

I got into a short discussion with someone on social media yesterday involving what exactly defines a "Ranger" in Middle-earth. I described loosely my knowledge on the origin of the word in Eriador and its non-military source (the Breefolk and those living in the surrounds), and came acros...

There could definitely be some interest there...would you care to share what your moots have been like, where you host them, and maybe some photos from past events? We'd love to see what you're all up to!

Re: New Member Introduction

It's all looking great! Might I ask what the cordage(?) hanging off your right shoulder is? Is it a part of the hood, or something I'm not seeing?

Thanks!
