Hall of Fire Tolkien trivia contest tomorrow!
How’s your Tolkien trivia? Do you know the difference between a Balcoth and a Brandybuck? All the seven names of Gondolin? How many great rings of power there were in total?
Well, if you’re up for the challenge, we’re powering-up our trivia master Elrond for this weekend’s Hall of Fire session. Elrond knows more than 700 questions — some easy, some not so easy! So join us this evening (Saturday March 10) from 6pm EST (that’s New York time) in #thehalloffire on our IRC server (irc.theonering.net) where we’ll be indulging in a fun battle of wits where that will test your Tolkien geekery to the limit!
Plus, as a quick a heads-up, next weekend we’ll be starting a chapter-by-chapter read-through of Fellowship of the Ring. So haul your copy out and brush-up on A Long Expected Party!
