I created this society for two reasons. The first is that I love Peter Jacksons interpretation of the Lord Of The Rings trilogy. From the dark beginnings of the prologue, to the charge of the Rohirrim, I love the lot. The second factor for creating this society is that there isn't one anywhere on H2G2. Not that i've looked but there's no Tolkien society. Well that changes now1. This is the place to be if you love Tolkeins works.
Now before I (Asmodaidark) go any further with this I want to make a few things clear. I haven't read any of the books yet. I tried a couple of years ago but found them difficult reading. However, having watched the films i've started reading them, and am nearly half way through the return of the king. I am desperately ploughing through them as we speak but silly things like college are getting in my way.
When starting a new thread- Make the title relevant to the topic. That way its easy for people to find current conversations and it means that there arent multiple conversations on a single topic.
Obviously im updating this when ever i get a chance.
Basically listen to other people and keep an open mind. There are a lot of people with there own opinions on whether the films/books are good. Feel free to discuss this, but dont let the conversations fall apart in arguements2. This a place for everyone that enjoys Tolkien to come and want to talk about his works.
Anyway all Tolkien fans enjoy!
Heres a few bits and bobs you might want to have a look at:
Tolkien crossword- A great crossword that had me stumped. Enjoy!
The Encyclopedia of Arda- Brilliant Lord Of The Rings source site. Its basically a Encyclopedia detailing lord of the rings, with information on bloodlines as well as maps.
What did Tolkien mean?- Probibly the most interesting Tolkien debate on h2g2, which goes over hundreds of issues (and i add, the birth place for this very page).
The Lord Of The Rings won this years big read (as if it was ever a competition).
You can find out more about Tolkien himself at this guide entery
