Hall of Fire chats return with The Hobbit!
“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.” It’s one of
literature’s most famous opening lines. The hobbit Bilbo Baggins is
smoking a pipe and minding his own business when Gandalf the wizard
arrives, offering adventure. Bilbo, comfortable in his Bag End home,
isn’t keen on anything remotely adventurous. But fate has other ideas.
The very next day Bilbo — and without so much as a pocket handkerchief
— is off on a great adventure in the company of Gandalf, and 13
dwarves keen to avenge their forefathers against the dragon, Smaug.
With Peter Jackson and his crew about to begin filming, TheOneRing.net
is delighted to announce a series of book-based Hobbit chats over
coming weekends that will analyse Tolkien’s text chapter-by-chapter.

After 40 years in hibernation, Tolkien Conference Returns
After lying dormant like Mount Doom for 40 years, the Third Conference
On Middle-earth (C.O.M.E.) returns on March 25-26, 2011. The weekend
devoted to J.R.R. Tolkien and his works such as “The Hobbit” and “The
Lord of the Rings” includes papers, panels, a party, banquet, and a
film screening. C.O.M.E. takes place at the Westford Regency Inn &
Conference Center in Westford, Massachusetts (USA), about 40 minutes
northwest of Boston. “It’s too long since I chaired the First and
Second Conferences on Middle-earth,” said Peregrin Took II (aka Jan
Howard Finder), who helped organize the first two gatherings. The
first conference took place in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois at the
University of Illinois in 1969; the second, in 1971, was held in
Cleveland, Ohio.

LOTRO Book 3, Echoes of the Dead – New Skirmishes

Garrison from the hordes of Mazog. These Skirmishes are waiting for
you to test your mettle and hone your skills whenever the call of
battle sounds.
