Hello all!

Hello Tolkien Forums!

I'm not really new to Lord of the Rings in a sense so I cant say I'm a full beginner, but theres still a lot I dont know and thats the reason I've joined here. To be honest I'm actually vary interested in the lore behind it all and while searching the net for a site to explain parts, I came across this forum. I've heard a little about this site before so I'm definetly looking forward to learning from the masters (a friendly compliment).

To say a bit about myself: I'm a full-time student with interests in philosohpy, theology and birds with a curiosity in J.R.R Tolkien's created mythology. That's at least the short version.

I look forward to many discussions!

Mithrandir,
Welcome! This a great place to learn all sorts of things about Tolkien and his works.
Find a thread and jump in. There are various games that share that desire to learn ~ The Riddle Game, Middle-earth A to Z, The Quote game, are a couple of them.
But the best is just make a thread about the things you want to know and let the others folks contribute.
I am not a beginner myself and share a kot of your interests ` philosophy, mythology, and theology.
Anyway I can help I will be glad to...PM, Thread, or even our chat box.
Again - Welcome Grey Traveler,
Bear
