Smaug, Azanulbizar, all this is missing is a talking purse and a few Entwives!

Almost to 50!

My Elf guard Gilibor just leveled to 49. That is all.

Out of the Frying Pan and Into the Fire

Out of the Frying Pan and Into the Fire

I found a mural of Goblin-graffiti that depicts the Hobbit chapter ‘Out of the Frying Pan and Into the Fire’. So….. goblins from Goblin Town in Gazatmur in Moria? or maybe the Moria goblins joined the chase in the Hobbit? Either way it was quite a fun find.

I have begun to explore Moria and quest as my 48 elf guard Gilibor

A (very) long expected post

A (very) long expected post

Well, I’m back. After a leave of absence I am back and will be posting regularly again. So here is a picture of me and my shadow in Sarnur, right before leveling to 48!

Just found the Tolkien Professors Faerie and Fantasy course.  Middle English is a beautiful language.

A Foolish Exploration

A Foolish Exploration

This is in Rohan, I made it out of Moria with a guide, and then to Rohan by using the RFDL method (Run For Dear Life)
I ended up dying by warg riders.

Adventures in the Black Pit

Adventures in the Black Pit

My level 46 Guardian (Gilibor on the Snowbourn server if you wanted to know) just recently entered Moria. I am playing without the benefit of the expansion (getting it soon I hope) and so have had to fight enemies five or six levels above me individually to get XP.

The Mightiest Mariner of Song

Earendil was a Mariner (my own writing)
‎(to the tune of rudolph the red nosed reindeer)
Earendil was a mariner,
With a very shiny brow,
And when Morgoth touched it,
He did exclaim: “OW!”

All of Feanor‘s silmarils,
Used to be on an Iron Crown
Til’ Beren Twice Mortal,
Went and cut one down.Then one foggy First age,
He heard Manwe say,
“Earendil with your brow so bright,
You and your ship must take flight!”Then all the Eldar loved him,
And they shouted out with glee:
“Earendil the Mariner
You’ll go down in history!”

If you are counting the days until the December 14, 2012 release date of The Hobbit (Part I) chances are you do not have a girlfriend and therefore need to find ways to pass the time. (I kid the geeks… I kid. Some of them do not have boyfriends.)

Not to worry. Since its original publication in 1937, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy that followed (between 1938 and 1949) Tolkein’s world of Hobbits, Ringwraiths, elves, and wizards has enthralled generations, inspiring countless songs, studies, puzzles, tributes, and cosplays. Here are just a few ways you can count down the next 35 days… or however they measure time in Middle Earth.

(Sing along now!)

Mine’s a tale that can’t be told, my freedom I hold dear.
How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air.
