Name the current Age of TORN!

If you've been on the TORN message boards more than a short time, you'll know that we date message board eras - and ourselves - by "Ages". Here are the first four Ages as traditionally defined:

First Age: April 1999-Dec. 2001 From the founding of TORN to the theatrical release of FOTR.
Second Age: Dec. 2001 - Dec. 2002 From FOTR to the theatrical release of The Two Towers.

Third Age: Dec. 2002 - Dec. 2003 From TTT to the theatrical release of Return of the King.
Fourth Age: Dec. 2003 - April 2007 From the theatrical release of ROTK to......

Lately there's been a lot of talk about whether we entered a new Age with the move to the new boards and the prospect of The Hobbit movies, and we (the Admins) think we have. The problem is, we have no consensus on what to call it. So we thought - why not take a vote?

What Age do you think we're in?


"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."
