Welcome Idril...I can see by signature that you're an elf from Rivendell. Perhaps we're neighbors!
You will find PT a warm and welcoming place. There are many members who are well informed about Tolkien's work and will give any discussion a good run for the money. Lots can be learned at this site, and many new friendships await you. Pull up a chair and a cup of java and enjoy the conversation. Again, welcome and well met Idril!
