Hi :D I am Ashwyn Laurelwin! I actually made that one up by myself......I like to make up stories especially involving elves and middle earth (duh) and I couldn't for the life of me figure out what to use as a unique feminine elvish name! Then as I was walking (pacing :dunce: ) I see my grandma emptying her ashes pail and it hit me! I really wanted something with wyn on the end and so I put two and two together! Ashes......wyn.......Ashwyn! And THEN since I couldn't be satisfied with that alone I wanted to add something.....interesting to the end. Laurelwin oddly enough just came to me so there was no deep thinking needed for that one :hahaha: So after boring you with all this useless information on the origins of my elvish name I shall present you with a random poem I made up of Ashwyn's coming through middle earth :D

One spring morn to the Shire she came,
A fair elvish lass, a warm-hearted dame,
Then with guide she left and travelled afar,
Through many lands under sun and star,
And all who met her firmly agree,
Never such a fair maid did ever they see,
And so since her beauty made all stop and stare,
She became known as Ashwyn Laurelwin the fair.

Wow that's not too bad......I actually made another one that's slightly better then this but I can't remember where it is so this is just the rough copy :P Well sorry for boring you with long introductions! I love LOTR and am sooooooooo glad I found this site :D

Mae govannen, welcome to Planet Tolkien, Ashwyn! I wish you a long and happy stay here. It all may seem a little daunting at first, but here's a mini-guide to get you started:
• There are different types of forum for different subjects. The one you posted on is for greeting newcomers, as you found out, but there are also ones for discussing the books/movies, the website in general, polls, Tolkien-related trivia, games, posting your own stories and poems (as you seem to be good at), and many other things that I can't think of at the moment. You can even create your own character and journey through Middle-Earth with other members in a Role-Playing Game (RPG). Drop in at the Khazad-Dumish Inn, or go on a more dangerous adventure in A Dark Threat from the North or Eruheran's Quest, the three active RPGs at the moment.
•Editing your account: You can change different features of your PT account through 'My Account' (top left on menu bar). You can upload an avatar (picture when you post, must be 70 by 70 pixels and must be in .gif format), change your personal info, view updates on PT, and send Private Messages (PMs) to other members if you want to alert them about something. However, it does cost mithril (20 pieces of which you get when you login each day). It depends where this member lives in PT (I, for example, live in Osgiliath, and you in Lothlorien, so it'll cost something along the lines of 5 pieces to send). It costs 400 mithril to change your location.
•Under some members' avatars you may see a little black box with 'Council Member' written on it in white letters. They are a part of the Council for being old and distinguished PT members (hope I didn't just offend anyone - hee hee) and have administrative powers, meaning they can edit other people's posts if they go against website rules (we are a Family Friendly website, so no swearing or profanity please).
Phew! Hope I've covered all the important stuff. To finish, I'll quote Grondmaster (a.k.a Grondy, Council Member, something in the region of 25'000 posts under his belt, off sick at the moment) and say: Share and Enjoy!

Hello Ashwyn! Welcome to PT! I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself very much here! :wavehello:

PS: Drop by at the Khazad Dumish Inn sometimes. Most of us are hanging there at the moment. We have only one requirement. All new customers must sing a song or a poem ;)

:D Thanks guys and Hello to all of you!! I'll be sure to stop by the Khazad-dumish inn. And thanks for being so helpful! It's awesome to have found such a great Tolkien website! My friends haven't read the books so I can't really talk to them about it, so this is awesome!
Thanks again everyone!!!

:D Thanks Fornac! I spent like two hours trying to find one I liked that meant the requirements and I thought this one was cool :cool:
Edit: Btw I like yours too Fornac :D
Edit:Edit: I changed it to a blue eye now since Ashwyn has blue eyes. What do you think?
