You Shall Not Pass on the chance to meet a Wizard and a sword named Glamdring!!  Long-time poster Roheryn did just that when she and NZ Strider attended an earthquake recovery fundraiser in Christchurch, NZ featuring Sir Ian McKellen on Stage – with Shakespeare, Tolkien and You.  Roheryn shares their adventure here with the very talented and delightful Sir Ian.

If you had the chance, what suggestions would you give to Peter Jackson about The Hobbit films?  Hobbit Discussion Board poster Mybear is compiling a list of thoughts and input for our intrepid Director.  What would YOU like to suggest?  Just remember to play nice!  😉

There’s another flurry of speculation on what these pictures discovered by poster Shelob’s Appetite could be!  Is it Dale?  Give them a peek and tell us what you think.

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 7,700 registered Tolkien fans, just like you.  Let your voice be heard!
