I was checking the list and saw you. Thanks for letting me know!

Each cloak was fastened about the neck with a brooch like a green leaf veined with silver.
`Are these magic cloaks?' asked Pippin, looking at them with wonder.

The simple rule of playing comedy is to play the truth of the situation -
Amos Starkadder is deadly serious in the pulpit and puts the fear of God
into his congregation. Only the audience, outside the situation, sees the
fun. There is nothing less amusing than an actor who can be seen trying to
get a laugh.

I would have to say the email [In reply to] Can't Post

from Ian is worthy of a frame and a place on the wall next to the map!!!! What a nice sentiment to have!


A myth is far truer than a history, for a history only gives a story of the shadows, whereas a myth gives a story of the substances that cast the shadows.~Annie Besant
Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole, and once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I hope he does delurk! [In reply to] Can't Post

I wrote to Daniel apart from placing my order, and had a little conversation you might enjoy:

I said:

Hi, Daniel. After all this time I feel like I know you :-) I was told you looked at some of my photos of the Unmasking; I was honored at the thought. I was one of the few people who have had the privilege of touching your fabled Map with my own hands. It is so incredibly beautiful. I've been a TORnsib since 2001. You captured the spirit of the place perfectly. Back in February, I think I was the first person to post a tentative list of correspondences between "places" on TORn and places in Middle Earth (Main should be in Hobbiton, etc.) Other people amended the list, but I'm thrilled to see so many things in that list come to fruition. You put so much love and care into the map: as many people have said, it *is* TORn. Thank you for doing this for us, and for doing it so incredibly well! I loved the look on Altaira's face when she said "How did you guys do this?" and Anne said "We didn't. Daniel Reeve did." And then she made this face: http://s226.photobucket.com/albums/dd62/AuntDoraBaggins/A%20conspiracy%20unmasked/?action=view¤t=Altaira.jpg

and then he said:

Thanks for your compliments Karen!

I've read many of the posts on the messageboard, and I feel like a part of the community now, having made a contribution by way of that little map! I'm so glad to have been part of the adventure - thanks for the opportunity!

Daniel

And then I said:

I'm so glad you've seen some of the excitement on the board. If you ever delurk, grammaboodawg will probably explode.

And then he said:

"delurk"!!! :'-D love it!

I don't think Gramma would be the only one.. [In reply to] Can't Post

.. but let me ask a hypothetical question.

If the chance were to arise that you could meet Daniel Reeve, now that we have seen what kind of magic he can make with a pen/brush etc., would you take it?

That is a silly question ;-) [In reply to] Can't Post

To be perfectly honest, I had no idea who he was before this project began. I loved the movies, but I didn't follow the careers of the people involved. But now that I've seen what a lovely person he is, of course I would want to meet him if I had a chance. (I did love his work in the movies, I had just never connected it with a name before.) Actually, I want to go back now and look some more at his board games. I'm a big fan of games with yummy boards. And now that I've looked at his site, I'm seeing a lot of things I would buy if I hadn't blown my budget for a while ;-)

I need to tell him [In reply to] Can't Post

that his sign "No Admittance except on Party Business" and Thror's map were the two things that caused me to fall in love with the Fellowship movie. I was so scared that the movies would be horrible, but as soon as I saw those two items I let out the breath I had been holding and knew my favorite books were in safe hands.

If Daniel ever does come to TORN, I kind of hope he does it anonymously so people get to know him as a person instead of as Daniel Reeve. As much as I know we appreciate what he's done I would want him to enjoy talking Tolkien as much as taking well-deserved congratulations for his work. He can uncloak once he's a regular and hoisted a few with us on Fiesta Friday.

Each cloak was fastened about the neck with a brooch like a green leaf veined with silver.

That would be marvellous. Since we know he has been here on the boards more than once already, I would dealry love for him to sign up and post here. Anonymously, as entmaiden suggested.

It would make a fun little game -- a newbie starts posting, and we all wonder -- "Could this be Daniel?"

As others have said, done and done! [In reply to] Can't Post

I was so afraid I'd missed it, as today is the first day I've been at the computer since last weekend! But it seems I made it in time. Woo-hoo! Smile

In all the excitement to order my copy of the map, however, I forgot to identify myself in the "note to seller" box. Entmaiden and Eledhwen, look for a PM from me. Blush

The map is so beautiful, and I'm very happy that we're able to order copies for our very own! I intend to frame mine and put it up on the wall right next to the computer where I can always see it.

Many, many thanks to Daniel, and to everyone else involved in bringing this treasure to us. Heart

HELP! [In reply to] Can't Post

I finally took a deep breath to plunge in and buy the map -- but it won't let me! As soon as I click onto Paypal, it comes up and says "The recipient of this shopping cart link is not an approved shopping cart user. Please review your selection and try again.".

So now what do I do? I'm running out of time. And I can't send a PM because it tells me I'm not a user and to sign in, and each time I sign in, I still get the same message!

I emailed Daniel, too. [In reply to] Can't Post

And, great glory and splendor he wrote back!

Here it is:

Dear Daniel,
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your recent work
on the The One Ring.Net message board map. The finished product is
more beautiful than we all imagined. I'm sure by now you have heard
what a great thrill it was for Altaira and BG to receive it. I was
only a very tiny part of the conspiracy, mostly contributing things
like, "I love it!" or "Great ideas!". However, the finished map has
turned out to be greater than the sum of its many parts. Thank you
again for your brilliance, talent and time. I especially love the
fox! You're a gem!
AlassŽa Eruvande (although I did use my real name when writing to him.)

Daniel's reply:

It truly was my pleasure to create the map, [AlassŽa's real name]! (wow, what a neat name!)

I added some ideas of my own of course, but many things (such as the
fox) came from you TORnadoes. I guess I'm just lucky to have been
given the job of showing you guys your own ideas in concrete form
(well, paper and ink in this case, rather than concrete...).

Glad you like it!

Daniel
