I think she means using actual Tengwar fonts, Loni.

If you have a copy of Return of the King which contains the Appendices, Marian, you will find a Tengwar alphabet in Appendix E. I'm afraid writing in Tengwar, however, is a little more complicated than using an English alphabet, but reading through that section may give you some idea on how to proceed.

Well met Marian. :happyelf: I have known two or three male Marians.

This next bit isn't meant specifically for Marian, but for all newbies: When new members with generic confusable names introduce themselves, they can reduce embarassment all around if they state their gender right off: That might keep the rest us from guessing wrong, or having to write "he/she/it" all the time. :tongueelf:

Or you could just learn Latin and put the he/she/it ending on the noun. :grin:

think she means using actual Tengwar fonts, Loni.

Ah, yeah. I just noticed that. And I was like "You're SOO stupid, Loni. THICK THICK THICK!!!"

With the help of the alphabeth in the RotK book I could easily teach myself writing Tengwar, it's really not that difficult. Now I want to learn reading it fluently, I think I'll soon manage to. Try it, I don't think you'll have difficulties.

Tengwars are fun, but it isn't something you learn over night. But I don't have as much time to practice as I'd like. I would like to see how a professional would write "aure". I wonder if there is a better/other way of writing two vowels following each other (like au in aure and ie in Amarie).

Does anyone know...

I thought bilbo had a pocket watch...and if so did they have time zones.
They wouldn't really be necessary except for the palantir.

I don't remember if they had watches or any concept of time for that matter.
