For the weekend of February 24th and 25th The Hall of Fire will focus on the work of Tolkien fans far and wide. Our guest moderator will be Smeagol7, long time Barliman’s regular, who has been working on his very own animated Lord of the Rings movie, complete with a trailer! We’ll check out Smeagol7’s work and explore what you other Middle-earth minds have created.

To get warmed up for the chat, you can check out our very own Fan Section. It’s loaded not only with pictures and writing, but also multimedia pieces, wallpaper, screen savers, and more. Bring your fannish thoughts down to the Hall of Fire as we discuss and share our favorite JRR Tolkien fan creations!
