** Founders Day - Praise them with Great Praise! Thank You to the Founders Can't Post

For providing us with our wonderful online Home, a massive THANK YOU to Xoanon, Tehanu, Calisuri and Corvar.

Where would we all be without this crazy, fun, magnificient place we know and love as TORn?

*hugs, love & blessings*

Bag ENZ Home of the Hobbit *with thanks to cameragod ;D*

One by one they faded, and fell into shadow...

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

Where would we be without you? [In reply to] Can't Post

Probably wandering through cyberspace, alone and forlorn, searching for hints about what's going on with our favorite books and films. Thanks so much.

A heartfelt thank you to our fearless foursome [In reply to] Can't Post

that came forth with grand ideas and heart, to sing into existence a peerless, dynamic and cozy house for all those who believe Tolkien has come into, and changed forever their lives.

May this house be forever blessed with warmth and fellowship that honors the one that still live vibrantly in our hearts.

To Corvar, Xoanon, Tehanu and Calisuri:

*Deep bow* I am honored and humbled before you and before all the wonderful souls that grace this place.

''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III

May the grace of Manwë let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of Manwë Súlimo

My profound thanks to the Fearless Four! [In reply to] Can't Post

And to everyone else -- such as you, Kel -- whose imaginations and good spirits and friendship have made this place the best place on the 'net.

(A special thank you to Tehanu, who I was fortunate enough to have breakfast with in Wellington in '08. All the best to you and your family.)

Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?

A man may do both. For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!

Yes! Thank you muchly // [In reply to] Can't Post


..The land of long-forgotten name:
......no man may ever anchor near;
..No steering star his hope may aim,
......for nether Night its marches drear,
..And waters wide no sail may tame,
......with shores encircled dark and sheer.

..O! Haven where my heart would be!
......the waves beat upon thy bar
..For ever echo endlessly,
......when longing leads thy thought afar

*raises mug* To the Founders! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for all you have done in the past, for all you continue to do, and for a grand future ahead for you and for TORn! Heart


"I desired dragons with a profound desire"

"It struck me last night that you might write a fearfully good romantic drama, with as much of the 'supernatural' as you cared to introduce. Have you ever thought of it?"

An absolutely huge ton of thank you to all the founders... [In reply to] Can't Post

for this fantastic site where TORn folk can play together (nicely, thanks to the admins). Thanks for maintaining the site for so many years, and bringing us all the news that's fit to print (and some of it that isn't.) Hurrah! Hurrah!

If ever there were people who should have a day named after them... [In reply to] Can't Post

..it's our founders. It's one thing to create a place like this, it's another thing to keep it going, through all the things that have happened over the last 12 years...TORn evolves and changes, the new are always welcome, the veterans are never forgotten, and they keep on recovering the furniture when it needs it!

Thanks for founding the place and keeping it going! Happy Day Named After You!
