Re: Cubicle 7 Forum Closing

I'm sad to see it happen, but these things are the way of the world.

I'm active on RPG.net and Enworld, and just joined the Google+ group. I hope to see see you wonderful adventurers out there too.

I'm happy to add some new forums to the mix too if there are some good ones.

Re: Moria

...as long as it has perforated, fold-out Balrog wings. Balrogs do not have wings. (mic drop) And so it begins, the great war of our time. oh snap it's on! Durin's bane clearly has shadows that stretched like wings, which are later referred to as wings. Whether or not these are indeed actual wings ...

Moria... I suspect I'm a dwarf trapped in a 6'5" human body.
I think how we see ourselves influences this a lot.

Re: Favourite Place in Middle-earth

Ah, Lake Evendim: Good fishing, boating, ruins to explore, probably a stray Wight or two to battle, maybe even a lesser Wraith sorting through the debris. Who could ask for anything more? 8-) And just a quick jaunt down to your friends in the Shire or a little further for a pint of the Butterbur's ...

Well, Barliman Butterbur of Bree certainly knew the significance of the land called "Mordor" when Strider informed him that the Black Riders hailed from there. His response was "Save us!" Hero of Canton Yup, Mordor is so bad that it's badness has lingered down the ages and rumor of it has traveled ...
