The TORn Message Boards look a little sharper these days with the addition of Hobbit banner circles at the top left-hand corner of every page.  Since day 1 on the Boards, we’ve enjoyed film snippets of the LotR films; but now they’ve been infused with film snippets of The Hobbit.  Check out our in-house celebration led by dernwyn here.

While Discussion Board Members mourned not being able to participate in the many Tolkien-related Conferences and Symposiums held all over the world, poster elaen32 had a great idea!  Inspired by Roheryn sharing news of yet one more out-of-reach Conference, elaen32 suggests that TORn hosts it’s very own. Check out the logistical, scholarly, and creative challenges discussed for such a stimulating event here.
