Welcome, welcome all new members!
Post a post here to let us know you have arrived and let us welcome you!
Happy Elf Smilie
Hello to everyone!

My name is Rayne and I live in Pennsylvania, outside of Philadelphia. I'm a true Pisces and a lover of science fiction/fantasy. I'm 42 and the mother of three daughters and a granddaughter. Two of my daughters received my love for reading but not sci-fi/fantasy (rats! can't have everything I guess.) I did, however, force my youngest to watch all three "Lord of the Rings" movies with me.

I joined this awesome website at the end of October . I was in need of help for a paper I was doing on the Ents and their role in the battle for Middle Earth. I had been searching the internet for sites when I stumbled onto this one. I was under the impression (a very wrong one, I might add) that I knew enough about my topic to produce a great paper. (ugh! how arrogant is that!)

Thankfully, I was lead to this site and all of you were amazing. The help you gave me was so needed by me, the one who thought she knew soooo much, and I thank you all. It is you incredible people, with your knowledge and insight, that has kept me returning here on almost a daily basis.

I am looking forward to beginning some real work into the extraordinary works of Tolkien and I'm sure I'll be visiting this site for a very long time.
It's great to see how much you love PT! Hope your stay here is a good one!
Hiya Rayne and welcome! Hope to see you in some Tolkien discussions. Enjoy the site.
Welcome to P-T Rayne; glad we could help you with your paper. Happy Elf Smilie Feel free to ask questions. Share and enjoy.

Hello.

I'm new here and this is my first entry, so I'll guess I'll tell a little of myself.
I am a 17 year old boy, who lives in Trondheim, Norway. I am about
1,85 meters tall, have dark hair and dark eyes. I play Football and Ishockey
on my speartime. I also Enjoy skateboarding and snowboarding.

I first read the Lord of the Rings after the first movie and have been in love
with Tolkien's world eversince.


And I just had to copy and paste it here so we all could say hi. Though mostly it was becuase he was a fellow Norwegian. Welcome Ian! Smile Smilie
Oh No! Another Viking!!!!!!!!


Well, Ian, if you are as nice as Amarie then welcome welcome welcome!
Hi Rayne, glad to give you an official welcome to PT (Iím a Pisces too btw)! Happy Elf Smilie

Oooooooooh stabbed through the heart and in the back.... (pout)
Welcome Rayne and Ian. I hope you will enjoy your stay here at PT. Its an awesome sight, with lots of friendly people from all over the globe. By the way Rayne, we're sort of kindred spirits as I too live in the States (Iowa), am 42 and have three children (boys in my case.) And I too love sci fi/fantasy, which I'm trying to pass on to my children also. And Ian...the culture of Rohan in the movies reminded me alot of what I've always guessed the Viking culture to be like. Ah well, welcome to all!

Hello all,

I'm Dutch, live in a small village, in the east. 17 years old. Read the book after I saw the first movie, and then came to the conclusion that the books are better Big Smile Smilie.

And Merry Christmas everyone!
welcome Valaraukar. I hope you enjoy your visits with us. And you are right, the books are much better than the movies. Smile Smilie
Well met Valaraukar. There are more Dutch here on board *pokes Gildor*, so feel welcome and enjoy your stay.
