Any word yet on when and where in Denver they'll be tonight? [In reply to] Can't Post

I've heard rumors about the Buckhorn Exchange, but I can't find confirmation anywhere.

Yep, I finally saw that, too. [In reply to] Can't Post

Bummer. I've been downtown all day and don't particularly want to turn around and go right back. And two hours is just too long to sit down there cooling my heels waiting. :(

Especially when I'm feeling kind of bleah anyway.

Dragon Con group in Denver (re-post) [In reply to] Can't Post

TheOneRing.net, with major sponsor The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, will arrive in Denver, Co tonight (8/31/11). After a day spent touring Gandalf around Moab, UT and driving through the rugged mountain scenery of Colorado our Fellowship of drivers are looking to rejuvenate with new friends in Denver. The festivities will begin at approximately 7pm at the Wynkoop Brewing Company after a full day of LIVE streaming madness and banter. The day on the road was spent with trivia contests, overcoming technical challenges to hook up the new on-the-road phone (970-210-6130) and learning from fellow fans that they really are watching the LIVE broadcast. The nighttime drive will see us through Kansas and into Missouri and onward to Atlanta and DragonCon! As usual, you can follow the entire LIVE road trip at theonering.net/live and contact us via barliman's chat, roadtrip@theonering.net and our phone! And don't' forget to support our sponsors: The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, Badali Jewelry and Anglotopia! [Roadtrip to DragonCon Sub Site] [Support the Trip - T-Shirts]

Watch our DragonCon Hobbit Panel LIVE! 1pm ET/10am PT (re-post) [In reply to] Can't Post

Our fellowship of travelers have made it Atlanta, GA and as you can see by the black screen on the feed, they are sleeping soundly, catching a few winks before the madness of DragonCon begins! We have a few exciting events taking place on our LIVE stream today. First, you can tune in LIVE as we present the latest news and information about The Hobbit Movies at our panel presentation. Like the one from Comic-Con, we will LIVE stream the entire panel, including any questions and audience participation. The panel begins at 1pm ET/10am PT and you can view it all in our TheOneRing.net LIVE section. [Here] The second scheduled event on our LIVE feed is the ever popular Evening at Bree! That will start at 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT and feature our good friends Emerald Rose performing with lots of fun and frivolity! And of course, today is the anniversary of JRR Tolkien's passing, so we'll take some time to honor the Professor. We will most likely be streaming other events during the day, so we encourage you to stay tuned and participate in the LIVE stream area. [TheOneRing.net LIVE] [DragonCon.org]

Dragon Con 2011 Wrap up! (re-post) [In reply to] Can't Post

ATLANTA — DragonCon 2011 marks the 11th year of involvement with the Atlanta based convention, where it has grown dramatically and yet remains true to its fan-based roots. (We dug up the earliest reports we could find, well worth a look here and featuring Karl Urban, Corvar and Calisuri.)

But this DragonCon had significant differences as well. With an over 2,500 mile journey from Los Angeles to Atlanta sponsored by War In The North, this convention featured the Fellowship of Drivers on The Road to DragonCon. They not only went there but back again with the help of Badali Jewelry and Anglotopia.net.

And on content partner Stickam.com, TORn was the most watched event for the week and the month. A special thanks to those who supported the trip with personal meetings, donations, texts, phone calls and other help.

The journey helped promote the forthcoming video game but it also served as a chance to get one of the Gandalf World Tour statues to Europe. (A story coming soon!)

TheOneRing also presented two panels on the two forthcoming Hobbit movies but because the first one was standing-room only, a third was added to accommodate more attendees. Presented by TORn staffers Deej, Greendragon,
MrCere and Quickbeam, the panels took a look at what is known and then speculated about the structure, division and tone of the films. Three of the staffers also attended a further panel discussing putting the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis on the big screen.

Tolkien programming ran around the clock as part of the Tolkien Track, giving Tolkienites plenty of content in a packed weekend. In a late surprise, Sylvester McCoy was announced as a guest and although he was part of the British Track of programming, he talked briefly about his role in The Hobbit and even suffered a question from the TORn staff. And we promise a full write up with more pictures soon!

Make your plans for next year as it will be like Christmas Eve before the Hobbit movies arrive the following December.
