So join us this evening (Saturday March 10) from 6pm EST (that’s New York time) in #thehalloffire on our IRC server ( where we’ll be indulging in a fun battle of wits where that will test your Tolkien geekery to the limit!

Plus, as a quick a heads-up, next weekend we’ll be starting a chapter-by-chapter read-through of Fellowship of the Ring. So haul your copy out and brush-up on A Long Expected Party!
