Rudi, I have to say that I completely agree with you regarding Tolkien's books. What kind of instrument do you play?

I'm foremost a bass-player but I can manage playing the saxophone even if i don't practice regulary. Do you play anything?
Welcome to PT Rudi. Enjoy your stay. I'm Arwen. I'm one of the council members(moderators) of this forum. You can recognize us by the small label under our avatars(picture on the right, next to your username) saying "council member"
Wow! Sweden, such a beautiful country. I myself live in the Netherlands. And I'm 14 years old.
As you said you're a musician I wanted to give you a link to the musicians guide thread. But I saw you found it already! Good! You might like to have a chat with Otto(Oerath Windsoul), he's a musician as well.(as you may have read in the musicians guide. )
What you said about the polite tone used on PT is more than true. We are like one big family. And we always like to see more people joining and becoming part of it.
As I already said enjoy your stay. Make friends and have fun. See you around in the threads.
Welcome to PT Rudi Share and enjoy
Thanks everyone for the warm wellcome!
Galandir - Both are amazing instruments. Practice is everything! By taking small baby-steps you'll soon find yourself being able to play things you never imagined you would.
Hi guys, I'm Lurtz, I have only just become a member of this golden site yesterday so I am very new to this. I am at work at the moment and the big boss man keeps wondering why he can see a Balrog on my screen... LOTR is too important in my life so he can look all he wants Nice to meet you all and I am looking forward to having some discussions and talking with you all, have a lovely day
Hello, Lurtz! Enjoy your stay at PT. I'm looking forward to your posts!
My name is Rita and I come from a small European country called Portugal. I've always been a fan of Tolkien ever since I can remember but after the last Hobbit movie I've been trying to deepen my knowledge about the wonderful world Tolkien created.
In the non-virtual world I'm in college, currently at the end of the second year of my Design course. Some of my favorite hobbies include drawing, writing, reading and editing videos/animations. I'm a very straight-forward and non-judgemental person who loves a good conversation; I've been lurking in this site for a while before deciding to register, so hopefully I'll be able to contribute for its growth and amazing threads!
Greetings, puny ones! I am Frushkul of Isengard!
(I am not "new" to Tolkien, but I am also no expert. I've seen the movies, but never read the books I play WoW and I've become interested in Orcs as a whole. Anything here on Orcs would be a treasure trove.)
Hello! I'm Draven, and actually very new to PT, but i LOVE it already. I watch the lord of the rings trilogy religiously and i don't think that will ever stop(X I'm in high school and because i don't really know anyone my age that's as big a fan as i am, i set out to find a place where i could babble as much as i wanted about all things LOTR, and have stumbled upon PT! Though, i really wish i was an elf princess living in Lothlorien and could talk to all of you in real life so very badly <3
Hi, I am Alex, I read this forum for months and now decided to join.
I am a medical student and I read Tolkien's books as a form of relaxation between my studies. I read the LOTR trilogy, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion and Lost Tales of Numenor.
I want to thank you all for creating such a great forum and I am happy to join.

Hi Molly and welcome to PT! Nice to have another person from the UK here
Hey there Molly Welcome to PT Share and Enjoy
Hello everyone! I am from China and I love Tolkien's masterpiece. The Lord of the Ring is bravo while I prefer the history of Middle-earth because I found chronicle is more fascinating to me and I also love the movie series. Tolkien's legendarium is a universe I am obsessed with. Tolkien devised this universe and I think I entered by reading his work and maybe one day I would like to create a world of my own using my imagine.
Welcome everyone! Glad to have new faces around
I'm Zanian_art, you can call me Zanian or Zan; I like physical activities like bike riding, taking walks, working out, running, and various other things of that nature. I also enjoy reading, watching anime or other videos with my family, playing chess, drawing, photography and just hanging out with my family.
I love meeting new people. I love the latest LOTR movies by Peter Jackson and I'll be honest, until a year or so ago I'd never read a LOTR book and so far have only read The Fellowship of the Ring, and The Hobbit. I loved them both so much! I am a bit of a critic and honestly a tad disappointed in The Hobbit movie so far though they are wonderful and a good bit of my disappointment probably is just because I read the book. Ok so this is turning more into an autobiography of sorts rather than a simple "Hey I'm new" so I probably aught to end it. Anyway, I'm new and I'd love to get to know you all and get in on some discussions!
Hey, I'm absolutely new here (and I don't even know why I've registrated myself).
I love Tolkien, he was genius!
I'm playing scottish bagpipes, piano and guitare. I'm active in scout organization and I do medieval swordfighting ("Living History"
Nice to meet you

Hello everybody, my name is farin and i am new here.
I like the LOTR movies and i'm also playing the games and if there are any problems than i will help you so much as i can.
G'day, I am Gror Falkbeard, I am a dwarf of Moria,
I come from Australia and I have a strange passion for the short bearded men depicted in the Tolkien works as master smiths and hardy warriors. I love Tolkien and his works, I have thoroughly enjoyed the first 2 hobbit movies and I love Peter Jackson's interpretation.
p.s I would like to start a thread about a story of dwarfs and a war fought by Dain Ironfoot and Brand of Dale, but for that I need to know how to start a new thread, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hello everyone, well met. I am Burkrandir of Gondor.
Looking forward to friendly discussions of Master Tolkien's works.
Posting this from chilly Canada. Thanks for letting me join.
Welcome Rudi! Hope you like the website. Yes, we try to be more polite, or more "reserved" because what you get when you get Tolkien fans on a website! Hope for you to get to know everyone and everything here.
Hello, I'm Amrod from Rivendell
I live in Argentina. I like listening heavy metal, playing videogames, playing the guitar and the keyboard, watching sci-fi and fantasy movies, and obviously I love Tolkien's work. My favourite book is The Silmarillion, but still I have to read the lotr books. I have read The Hobbit too. I've already watched the Peter Jackson's lotr trilogy, and also both of The Hobbits movies, and I'm waiting for the third one.
I'm sure I will enjoy my stay on this page, and I hope to make friends, to learn from you, and to have a lot of fun
Hello, I'm Eva Edensnake, from Mexico, I'm currently studying Hispanic Literature and Linguistics, I'm 24 years old and been quite intense about Tolkien since I was 12. I work as a freelance translator and High school tutor. Besides that I enjoy reading about cosmology, astrophysics, ontology, sociology, economy, mythology, neurology, pop culture and counter culture. I love to sing/dance/perform/draw/write and I'm a bit of a music geek. Greetings. Thanks for reading.
Welcome to you Newbies
Welcome to PT's halls, Amrod and Morwen!! ---

Welcome to PT, Amrod and Morwen and all other members too, who I've - in my absence - forgot to greet and welcome.

Hi, I'm a 20 year old Australian finance student and will go by Anborn, I suppose. I'm principally familiar with the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, but have read the Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales and am currently rereading the Children of Húrin. The films I could take or leave, though I found the soundtracks/scores to be brilliant. However, the films introduced me to the world/s of Tolkien, so I owe them a debt. I'm rambling.
I only recently discovered PT this week (long after I wish I had, as is my wont) and hope to explore it further.
