Coming soon! Your chance to add a new holiday to your dwarvish calendar! Can't Post

Because Hot Dwarves are not just for Durin’s Day – they are also for Founders Day!”

How do you celebrate Durin's Day? With a thrush egg hunt? By going to a fireworks show by Gandalf -- or Smaug? With an expected or unexpected party?

Now, you don't have to wait a whole year to enjoy your favorite Durin's Day activities. Join us next weekend on TORn when we celebrate Founders Day,. the biggest party of the year for theonering.net community.

Founders Day is TORn's official holiday, marking the anniversary of the founding of this site. This year we're celebrating TORn's 15th Anniversary, so some extra special fun is planned.

Come and enjoy the party threads and surprises you'll find on the site, starting with a big Kick Off Party at Fiesta Friday on April 25 and continuing on all day Saturday. April 26 -- we'd love to see you there!


"Check out that buffet line..."


"There's plenty for the both of you..."


"May the best dwarf win!"

See you at Founders Day!

I'm kind of hoping a hot dwarf will make a pass at me, actually... [In reply to] Can't Post

But you can bring whatever "hot dish" you like as your guest! Smile If I see Legolas, I'll let him know you are looking for him...

As for dress code, well -- feel free to put a party hat on your avatar if you wish!

Nope [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't even know TORn existed a year ago. This means I have a lot of lost time to make up for! Angelic Evil

Here is but a taste of the party that will be unleashed... [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's a link to one of the threads from the 10th Anniversary Party, just to give you a flavor of what's in store:

But really, every year is different -- whether you've been here a year or forever, everyone who joins in adds something special to the day. Looking forward to what newer folks like you will add to the weekend!

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 beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Mods up! [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know what I expected when I opened up your post but it certainly wasn't this! What a riot!

You know I think you could make money selling that calendar. Or just that one calendar page!
