A Very Special Founder’s Day / Fan Tribute

We’re happy to say that our Founder’s Day 2011 celebration has been a resounding success (see Founder’s Day story below)! Of the many wonderful contributions of the day, one stood out as especially representative of the camaraderie that many of us share as fans of J.R.R. Tolkien, Peter Jackson’s movies, and fantasy in general.  Discussion board member One Ringer put together a wonderful retrospective of fan gatherings to mark the special day. In One Ringer’s own words:

“After twelves years of constant coverage of everything Tolkien, stands as the top site for a social gathering for fans of the late Professor and his work. In honor of Founders Day comes the One Slideshow to (hopefully) show many of the great memories that the members of TORn have had in the past years. Click on the link below and watch at your desired video quality. I hope you enjoy.” — One Ringer

We definitely *will* enjoy, One Ringer! Click on the link below to see this wonderful video.

Welcome to TORn Founder’s Day – 2011!

When marked its 10th anniversary in 2009, we celebrated in style. In fact, we had such a good time, we decided to continue to celebrate every year on April 26, the date that TORn was established.

Founder’s Day is’s official holiday, filled with the best that a virtual party can offer.  If your new(er) to the site, it’s a chance to find out about the roots of the site, about the four founders, and/or just explore the place (hint: start with the links on the left of the page).

If you’ve been around for a bit, it’s a great day to reminisce, tell war stories, and reflect on all the adventures and friendships that have been forged over the years. There will be new things popping up all day on several of the message boards — so don’t be shy! Hunt around, find a party game you like, or a conversation you enjoy, and dive in! Or, join us in Barliman’s chat room.

Here’s to our Founders (from left to right below: Corvar, Xoanon, Tehanu, Calisuri). Happy 12th TORNiversary,!

A photo tribute to 10 years of TORn

During my association with I have often felt very fortunate to know great people and be in great places. Sometimes I have been lucky enough to have my camera along.

Out of that vast TORn photo library that includes digital images, and old scratched negitives, I put a few images together with some music from Arjan Kiel, (with thanks to fan film ‘Born of Hope,’) to pay tribute to the whole community of
