Welcome to TORn Founders Day – 2017!

April 26, 2017 at 12:51 am by grammaboodawg  - 

When marked its 10th anniversary in 2009, we celebrated in style. We had such a good time, we decided to celebrate every year on April 26, the date that TORn was established.To us, however, this is more than an Anniversary.

Inspired by TORn Discussion Board member weaver, April 26 has evolved into Founders Day!  It’s become’s official holiday to celebrate our four Founders and is our time to say thanks to them and the people who keep this place going.  It’s a great day to find shade under our FD Tree and reminisce, tell war stories, and reflect on all the adventures and friendships that have been forged over the years.  If you watch closely, you’ll see that every year a new leaf sprouts with its own unique look. [Here’s more about our FD Party Tree]


Come to our Discussion Boards where the day is filled with the best that a virtual party can offer.  Everyone is invited to join in — so don’t be shy!  Look for special party threads clearly identified in the subject line on our message boards (mostly on Main, Off Topic and Reading Room).  Hunt around, find a party game you like, or a conversation you enjoy, and dive in! Plus Barliman’s chat is always open, as is our facebook page, of course. While we understand they don’t currently have a special event planned, they always welcome both old friends and new visitors, so why not drop in and say Hi!

Here’s a link to this year’s list of games.

Here’s to our Founders: Corvar, Xoanon, Tehanu, Calisuri!

Happy 18th TORniversary,!!

As part of our celebration every year we reprise posting the TORn “Valaquenta” shown here. The TORn Valaquenta was written by member Alassëa Eruvende and set most beautifully to paper by our dear friend Daniel Reeve, calligrapher and artist for Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies. Enjoy!
