Welcome to our collection of TORn’s hottest topics for the past week. If you’ve fallen behind on what’s happening on the Message Boards, here’s a great way to catch the highlights. Or if you’re new to TORn and want to enjoy some great conversations, just follow the links to some of our most popular discussions. 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 highlight of this past week was the TORn-Boards’ Annual Baggins’ Birthday Party!  To celebrate the occasion, the whole community covering several Discussion Boards comes together with games, poetry, riddles and more!  You can still join the fun even after the tents are down and party stragglers are carried off in wheel-barrows.

Have you ever wanted to take a walk through Middle-earth?  Since 2003, TORn posters have grabbed their cloaks, handkerchiefs and a pocket full of apples as they Walk to Rivendell…and Beyond!  Come join the Fellowship as they head South and Bilbo heads West with a Company of Dwarves.  Poster Arandiel hosts the re-launch of our Quest to travel the long miles with the aid of maps, mileage and conversion charts, and postcards to mark your milestones.  She’s also devised an inspired Challenge for us all!!  Here’s where to start…

The sky is falling!!! The Off-Topic Discussion Board was buzzing and everyone looked to the heavens as the world anticipated the burning debris from a dead satellite re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere somewhere near North America!  TORn poster Patty warned Canada to “look up –the space junk may be falling on you!”  Thankfully, the flame of Udûn DID pass us this time!

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 over 6,900 registered Tolkien fans, just like yourself! Let your voice be heard.
