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!

How many people do you know who could resist a sneak peek at the Dwarves?  Or Bilbo?  Or anything to do with the filming of The Hobbit?  Artanis is doing just that and asks others on the Off Topic Discussion Board how they’re handling the anticipation.  Are they peeking or waiting?  How about you?

This is a TIME of excitement and danger for the Fellowship in The Lord of the Rings.  Follow the day-by-day account as Bilbo and the Dwarves wait at the Hidden Door of the Lonely Mountain and Frodo rides to escape the Black Riders over on the Main Discussion Board.

Speaking of the Fellowship’s and Bilbo & Company’s journeys across Middle-earth, come join TORn posters during their Walk to Rivendell as they follow the various paths of Elves, Dwarves, Men, Wizard and Hobbits.  Every Thursday on the Main Discussion Board, Arandiel posts our progress in the Challenge to reach The Lonely Mountain by the release of film 1–The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on December 14, 2012.  Come join us as we Walk to Rivendell… and Beyond!

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 7,000 registered Tolkien fans, just like yourself! Let your voice be heard.
