Cumberbatch ‘Grab’ Fires Up The Internet

It can be argued that the biggest internet story coming out of the premiere is not spiders and bears, but a playful behind grab caught only by TheOneRing.net cameras! During our exclusive red-carpet interview with Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch sneakily snuck up and shared a pinch and a bird with his Hobbit co-star. Animated gifs have turned up everywhere on tumblr, and even Gawker’s Jezebel says this is the greatest thing to come out of it all.

Tune in to TheOneRing.net Live on Sunday for our brand new show: TORn Book Club!

TORn Book Club

This Sunday, November 10th, at 3PM PST, TheOneRing.net Live is proud to premiere our brand new show: TORn Book Club!

Hosted by long time staffer Sarumann, this show will focus on literature and all things to do with reading and writing. While we certainly have a bias toward Tolkien, this show will not focus only on Tolkien and his works, but also on all manner of classic fantasy and science fiction. As the title implies, this will have a book club feel to it. Every month, we will choose a book for you, the viewers, to read, and we will have a discussion on the book at the end of that month. We know that our fans are voracious readers, and love to discuss what they find.

But the show isn’t just book discussions! With November being National Novel Writing Month, fans who are participating are encouraged to tune in and share your progress! Each week in November, we will be discussing the ups and downs of writing, and giving advice and pointers to the aspiring writers in the crowd.

When we can, we will also have author guests on the program to discuss their works and their experiences as writers.

We will also be announcing the monthly winners for our “Rewrite Tolkien” contest on this show!

As you can see, there is plenty to talk about, and we’re excited to bring this new show to you!

Be sure to tune in at theonering.net/live on Sunday, November 10th, at 3PM PST and join in the fun!

Twas a long ride filled with much entertaining and lore-banter via the crystal slab. They talked of the rings of power and heir respective fates, the Line of Durin and what sealed their doom, and of the secret greed of Sauruman, coveter of the One.

As the sun set below middle-earth so did they set down in the bustling metropolis of Atlanta, City of the Sweet Fruit. The company unloaded their precious cargo of outerwear and delved into the fabled convention.

Crytozoic’s Lost Tales: The Road to DragonCon 29th of August

Wildwood Rabbitry - The Road to DragonCon 2013 - After a night of narry a wink of sleep, the companions set out at first light on what would be one epic day.

Winding country lanes called their name and they answered. Among the winding mountainous roads they found one of Radagast’s hidden dells of unspoilt nature, The Wildwood Rabbitry. The two sisters who call this haven their’s were strong and of the earth, like the Entwives of old.

Among many Shire-like services they did for the community and the land itself, they bred giant Rhosgobel (Flemish Giants) Rabbits, the ones that in times past pulled the woodland sleigh of the Brown Wizard. They fed the weary band with homemade rolls that would’ve made Beorn himself blush, crystal clear spring water reminiscent of the Ent draught of legend, and desert cakes that Bombur could only dream of.

The Road to DragonCon – The Tale of the 27th of August

The Road to DragonCon 2013Buoyed by their educational experience from the day before, Cryptozoic and TheOneRing.net’s Road to Dragon Con fellowship set out in high spirits. Before hitting the road proper, they stopped at a treasure trove entitled Toys R Us to seek out jointed, miniature busts of their favorite heroes and villains, not to mention replicas of legendary weapons.

On the way out of the trading metropolis of Denver they picked up a new member, Katalena! A master of masks and trickery, makeup and mirrors. She joined them to be a player in the masquerade that is Dragon Con.

The flat, empty, fly-ridden plains of Kansas opened up like a hungry maw before them, they had no choice but to enter and cross. All across the never-ending plains they shared stories with their companions watching via crystal slab, and chatted awhile with Cliff the Unmoving, The Adamant Wizard.

Finally the weary band made their way in the outskirts of Kansas City, where after multiple tries they found an inn to rest their weary heads.

What is next in store for the Fellowship of the Dragon? Moridan himself can’t tell you that secret.

- Doug Brochu

Goblin's in Arizona??

Goblin’s in Arizona??

The Road to DragonCon team is frolicking around the mountains of Colorado today on their way to the first fan meet-up in Denver. Details on that in a little bit! First a bit of a recap from yesterday.

We’d like to welcome Cryptozoic as an official sponsor of our Road to DragonCon! Cryptozoic has an amazing line-up of trading card and traditional games, including their recently released Hobbit Board Game and soon to be released The Two Towers Deck-Building Game (Aug 28th).

Justin, Doug and Ryan woke up in the rain at Lake Powell, Utah – allowing them only 4 hours of sleep that night. Rain in the desert is not as uncommon as one might think! They made their way to a local Denny’s where the manager and waitress gave them the all-star treatment.
