When TheOneRing.net 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 TheOneRing.net’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, TheOneRing.net!








As a special treat every year we reprise posting the TORn ‘Valequenta’ below. The TORn ‘Valequenta’ was written by member Alassëa Eruvende and set most beautifully to paper by our dear friend Daniel Reeve, calligrapher and artist for Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings movies. Enjoy!
