Almarë, ilyë... []

Thought I'd peek in and introduce myself....yes, another new citizen of this fair city...

My name is Mirëandúnë, or Mirë to be quick about it. It means "Jewel of the evening sky" in Quenya, which is the Tolkien language I am most familiar with (though no expert, I assure you!!!) I love this little icon, as the moon/stars theme was what I was going for when choosing it.

I'm a long time Tolkien lover. And have found, with this mythology, that the longer I read it, the more I realize there is to learn. I'm always fascinated to hear the insights of people who are far more expert about it all than I.

But lest you think that I am but a dry old scholar....pah!! I love a good laugh and a clever joke, and can lift a pint with the best of them....and look forward to doing so here with some new faces. []

Welcome, Mirë, to the fair White City of Gondor. May your stay be full of learning and friends. However,

Then why is your thread title in Sindarin, I'm curious to know? Even so, it is good to find another Quenya lover. []

Mára tulda, Mirë!

I see you are a lover of the most-mellifluous High Elven. Bravo! But, *ahem* I noticed you used that sinda lambë greeting. [] [] Try this instead:

Mára ovantië, nildorenya!

Welcome, Mirë!
Yes, there are a few of us here who are also learning Quenya - and some others who know enough to teach us. I've only just started to learn, but I think it is a beautiful language.

My character, Varnafindë, is an Eldarin scholar and of course speaks both languages fluently. Just don't ask her to give any examples. []

Hope you'll have fun around the board!

Welcome to Minas Tirith, Mirë! []

My first impression is that you'll do well around here. [] We are always glad to welcome any citizen who has a true love for Tolkien!

I hope you enjoy your stay, and if you've got any questions, you may want to check out the "All Newbie Questions Answered" thread in this forum. Don't ever hesitate to ask questions, if you've got them!

Too bad you didn't stick around Mirë.
