Beorning characteristics

I was interested to read the Wiki section on Beornings, and to see how they are being interpreted for use in SoI. I know there is a lot of room for interpretation with Beornings, given that not a great deal was written about them by Tolkien. I was just wondering though, if there's a reason why they ...

Re: Middle Earth behavior and you

I don't think anyone is arguing that curse words "didn't exist" but rather that, much like today, they weren't used in polite company. If everyone runs around cursing like a sailor, then my character for one is going to have a very poor opinion of them and view them as the dregs of society and all ...

Re: Middle Earth behavior and you

Re: swearing. This is an interesting one. I'm a big fan of the canon, but I'm not sure I see a problem with the words "snarfagle" or "shit" being used, in moderation. Tolkien may not have used them, but that was not because the words are modern (they're not) but because as an author writing in the 1...

Re: Relative Location of Locations

The map looks great Hazgarn. I think the Long Marshes should extend further south, though, all the way along the river, to the point where the Old Forest Road exits Mirkwood. http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Long_Marshes http://www.glyphweb.com/arda/l/longmarshes.html ETA: Just realised this isn't act...

Re: An In-Depth Look: Great Spiders

There, beneath the sheer walls of the mountains and the cold dark sea, the shadows were deepest and thickest in the world; and there in Avathar, secret and unknown, Ungoliant had made her abode. The Eldar knew not whence she came; but some have said that in ages long before she descended from the d...

Length of Full Description

As many of us are working on creating characters at the moment, I wanted to get people's thoughts on full description lengths. I can see the appeal of fully detailed lengthy descriptions, stemming from a desire to flesh out a character as much as possible in the space provided. I've done this myself...

Re: SoI 2014 Player Overview

Really excited that this MUD is opening up again, especially with the new setting. I've always loved this area of Middle Earth, ever since I found an old battered copy of the Hobbit in the attic when I was 8 years old. It's just such a rich and atsmospheric area. Been playing The One Ring tabletop R...
