“…You have come and are here met, in this very nick of time, by chance as it may seem. Yet it is not so. Believe rather that it is so ordered that we, who sit here, and none others, must now find counsel for the peril of the world.”
Welcome to the Council of Elrond! You have stumbled upon one of the largest resource sites on the web offering a variety of unique features based on the creative works of J.R.R. Tolkien, including The Lord of the Rings. Come on in and register, then jump in and get involved. If you are looking for tons of quality images, feel free to visit our Gallery. We also have a forum if you’re interested in serious discussion, drooling over your favorite characters, or roleplaying with other site members. Other sections of the site, such as the Languages section, Elrond’s Library, and the Encyclopedia offer opportunities to learn more about the worlds and cultures that Tolkien created. Of course, there is more on this site than we can mention here, so feel free to jump right in, and experience one of the best Tolkien sites on the net.
For more information on where to see the live stream of the event, which takes place starting at 6:30 PM PST and 9:30 PM EST, just click here.
