If you live near Akron, Ohio [In reply to] Can't Post

go to the Stow Walmart on Hudson Drive. There are several copies in the very middle of the mag section in the rear of the store. (I slid two of them behind the Family Handyman - Special Tool Edition magazine. ;) ) What a wonderful treasure hunt!

I did a detailed write-up [In reply to] Can't Post

in the thread on Pg 2. (What has it got in its handses.)

Ah, so that's who wrote all this stuff! I am still reading it, I don't like to rush these things, I like to savor thisstuff like..well, fine Dorwinian wineEvil. (So that article *was* yours, Altaira? The first time I read that, I nearly choked on my tea, I was laughing so hard. But everyone's work is FANTASTIC...how did you manage to have so few ads?
(and what IS "Blowfish" anyway? Maybe it has Longbottom Leaf in it, precious...Sly)


Pssst....I know it's late in the game, but seeing as Altaira hasn't gotten back to me,..... I have 5 copies on hold at the bookstore until Friday, anyone who isn't covered with a copy PM me and I'll see if we can work something out.

Josh Long is Elessar and Josh Rubinstein is Sarumann, and the second Josh works in creating DVDs and Bluray, so he got the technical article by default.

Patiently waiting [In reply to] Can't Post

Two sibs have promised to get me a copy and Aunt Dora Baggins has been so kind to scan the page my work is on Smile (although that Glaurung is staring quite fierce at my work, I hope he keeps his flames away from it).

I can't wait to see it, from what I read here, it must be very pretty.

Well done all!!

No profile of TOR rpg? [In reply to] Can't Post

Copies of the magazine have showed up at our local (Buffalo, NY) Wegmans supermarkets. I haven't seen it at B&N yet, or anywhere else, but I'm sure that more copies are surfacing.

One minor disappointment: While the magazine does include write-ups for the Games Workshop LOTR strategy game and the latest Middle-earth video games, there is not even a mention of Cubicle 7's role-playing game The One Ring: Adventures Over the Edge of the Wild. The core game was released over the summer, including an Adventurer's Book, the Loremaster's Book, two 22" X 17" maps and a set of customized dice. Since then, the campaign supplimement Tales from Wilderland has been released and Lake-town (which includes a Loremaster's Screen) is due out late-October or early-November. Individual sets of The One Ring dice can also be purchased.

I'm not sure if I like the game better than Iron Crown's old MERP, but I haven't actually been able to play it in a group setting yet. It definitely has a unique flavor, being unlike any other fantasy rpg that I've played, especially in its treatment of magic.

Video games [In reply to] Can't Post

For me I just concentrated on the two upcoming video games to be honest. Those two games seemed like the biggest deals and ones that would draw the most interest from fans.

I understand... [In reply to] Can't Post

It is still ironic that the game that gets ommited is the one that has The One Ring in its title!

I am NOT a happy camper... [In reply to] Can't Post

Every copy I've found at several vendors has been either creased, torn, gouged, the edges dented or had the shiny film covering the magazine peeling off.

I really hate it when they deliver the bundle of magazines tied up with plastic "rope"... it always ends up damaging all the copies because it cuts into the sides of the magazines... and having the "gloss" peel off is just tacky.

So much for a "collectible" copy... it's not worth a dang to me if it's damaged... Mad

Niche [In reply to] Can't Post

Games like that tend to be a niche of a niche. Just didn't think it was something that would generate much interest.

I'm sorry :( [In reply to] Can't Post

The shipping and packaging sounds so shoddy. I'm glad you found some, but you should be able to expect good copies that are intact. Especially since it says right on the cover that it's a collectible!

Okay... everyone fess up... [In reply to] Can't Post

who told the clerk why you were buying the magazine?

I couldn't help it. I did. She opened the window for conversation by asking when the movie was being released.

I didn't.... [In reply to] Can't Post

Though when I put my copies on hold I told the manager, "You might be interested to know that not even the people who worked on this have copies yet..." he didn't ask what it was, or blink an eyelash. I'm stilla little embarrassed about all this. It's a far cry from 10 yrs ago (or even 6 or 7) when I worked at this bookstore, did all the Harry Potter midnight release parties, and spent a good deal of my time talking up Tolkien and my other favorite authors to customers. Oh, what fun I had---makes me wish I had the time to work there again, so I could geek out with TH! But too many things take up my time now, for me to adhere to the schedule I had the better part of a decade ago...

In my case... [In reply to] Can't Post

it was the clerk who started the conversation, first by asking me if I knew they were making it into three movies and talking about how they must be filming every little thing in the book, and I told him they were including stuff from the LOTR Appendices, not just the Hobbit book, and the conversation went on from there....and then he enthused about Game of Thrones for a few minutes until another customer got in line at the counter.

Oh yeah... ol' blabber-mouth blabbed ;) [In reply to] Can't Post

Especially when I was first trying to hunt down a copy and NO ONE had anything on their shelves and I resorted to phone calls to bookstores way out of town "But I'm a contributor! I really want one!"

When I finally did find one, I went through self-checkout and so couldn't speak directly to a cashier... but I DID hunt down a manager and thanked them for stocking it. "You are the ONLY ones in this whole town who had this on the shelf... and I appreciate it so much!"

"Uh... thank you," he said backing away. He was very busy.

"No, you don't understand! This was important!"

"Good. Okay. Thank you."

"No! Thank YOU!" *geeky twitter* And I skipped out the door.

and without a car, so I won't be able to search until I get home this weekend. I'm sure I'll find some, and I'm taking a bunch of copies to New Zealand with me in November.

lol... I love the backing away part. [In reply to] Can't Post

Maybe it's the geek smell that comes off us. I've had people do that when I was talking folk dancing or Morris dancing. It was like I was trying to hand them a religious tract. They wanted to put just enough room between us so they could flee if I tried.
