All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shal be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Interactive video games along the sidebars! [In reply to] Can't Post

Like a Mario-type game, only with Gollum chasing after Frodo, and Sam chasing Gollum!

Cool, huh?

what do you call those games [In reply to] Can't Post

where you control a line of people, dots, etc. and the line keeps getting longer and you have to make sure they don't run into each other
(horrible "sentence" I know, too lazy to fix it though)

there could be a version of that game, only with the ring as the front of the line, and other characters chasing it Wink

It's virtual... [In reply to] Can't Post

and I don't drink in real life, so pretend it's whatever you like. ;)
And since your posting habits led me to search for it *grin* ...my first post on the new boards:
[in response to Tampa Phil's "It's been 10 Minutes since I first posted here on the new boards.

When I think back to when I made my first post on the new boards (10 minutes ago), I get misty eyed. So many old and new faces. But in that time (10 Minutes), the new boards have kept their essential friendly character intact.

So now, I offer a mathom to celebrate my 10 Minute Anniversary.

Or, possibly, I don't.

Feel free to use this thread to congratulate me on my 10 Minute Anniversary."]

Quote
I'd congratulate you, but I want to be the first newbie to complain about the outdated format of these message boards and ask when TORn is going to get with the program. *hee!*

Seriously though, this is going to take some getting used to.
:)

I think maybe I'll have another glug for old time's sake. =)

I don't drink NEARLY as much as I used to - must be either that "gettin' OLD thing" or else just other things interest me more now. But I'm curious, virtual or no, what do you IMAGINE is in there? To me it tasted a lot like something strawberry. Smile

Do you mean "competitions" or "companions" or something entirely different?

There have been a few competitions [In reply to] Can't Post

I've actually won two pretty spectacular prizes in competitions (feeling lucky enough that I won't enter any more).

One was for the Cryptic Crossword puzzle:
http://greenbooks.theonering.net/crossword/
http://archives.theonering.net/...orts/9.08.03-9.14.03

The other was for the Show Your Hobbit Pride competition:
http://newboards.theonering.net/...cgi?post=42342#42342

I can think of many others. At least one, I remember, involved gaming of some sort. Some are simply drawings rather than competitions.

Prizes are donated by companies and companies are usually looking to promote with their donations. Therefore, I think we saw more such competitions and drawings during the hey-day of LOTR when there were many products to promote. I suspect we'll see it again when The Hobbit starts nearing completion.

I'm curious how long you've been 'hanging' around TORn? If it's only been a short time, you wouldn't be able to judge whether TORn has competitions or not. But soon, you might be able to look it up in a repository of TORn History. A TORn Mathom-house, so to speak. :-D

If we're going to have animals with lasers, [In reply to] Can't Post

they should be sharks with *frickin* lasers on their heads. Or should I say "Lay-zers"...

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
