Watch this space as every weekend we will spotlight the most popular buzz on TORn’s Message Boards. Everyone is welcome, so come on in and join in the fun!

The activity on TORn’s Hobbit Movie Discussion Board is showing no sign of easing… especially with announcements like Saorise Ronan/Itaril Rumours Can Now Be Laid To Rest (which is also discussed in Hobbit in 5) or when pondering The issue of Sauron’s appearance keep our keyboards so busy!  The action and excitement on that Board is hard to keep up with, but it’s great fun to try!!  

Did You Ever Notice… Aragorn’s Black Gate Armor?    This past week had a treat from our talented regular, Arwen’s daughter, who highlights details of different costumes  from The Lord of the Rings films.  She even provides links to all her past costume discussions since 2007! 

Finally, the Reading Room is preparing to begin a new chapter of discussions as they near the end of an intensive look at The Return of the King. Even if all you want to do is lurk, come and settle into a comfy seat as we ponder Whither the Reading Room and the value of following Tolkien’s written words.

We’ll share more topics next week and hope you can join in on the conversation! Don’t forget, TheOneRing.net’s message boards have almost 6000 registered Tolkien fans, just like yourself! Let your voice be heard.
