Hello WaitingCynicism, welcome to CoE! A most unusual username, I must admit. Any particular backstory to it? Thanks for the short intro, enjoy the site!

Post Introduction
on: August 05, 2018 07:50
Name (or what you'd like to be called here in CoE) - MacNab
Age - 48
Gender - M
Where are you from (country/state)? - Georgia, U.S.A.
How did you find CoE? - Randomly searching for Sindarin translations.
What are your hobbies and interests? - Food, music, various crafts (I'm a chef, glassblower, leather-worker, something of a jeweler, woodworker, guitar picker, etc. Feanor, the greatest of all craftsmen, is a hero of mine, flawed though he was.) And, of course, reading Tolkien.
Have you read the 'Lord of the Rings' & 'The Hobbit' and/or seen the movies? - Yes, many times.
Do you have any questions about finding your way around CoE? - Not yet.

Greetings to all, and thank you for having me on board! One of my primary interests here is obtaining help with (mainly Sindarin) translations for various projects, whether it is inscribing a drinking horn, designing a tattoo, carving a walking stick, or having a silver ring custom ingraved in Tengwar. I am no scholar or linguist, and, being a full-time chef, I have little time to pursue my other craft projects, much less delve into the study of a fictional foreign language. Although I promise to do what research that I can before asking for help!

Hello and welcome MacNab23. You’ve come to the right place for Sindarin lessons. Have a look in the Elvish Forums as well if you haven’t yet. Enjoy the site!

Welcome, MacNab! Good to see a fellow Feanor fan! Never enough of them if you ask me.
May this be an injury-free season for Yamamoto-senshu. What a skating talent! Image

Nothing really particular about it, it's just a username I got off some generator or whatever on reddit and started using

Welcome to CoE, fool_of_a_took_12! Regarding you avatar, Frodo is actually directly half Brandybuck through his mother Primula. But then Primula's mother Mirabella was née a Took, younger sister of Bilbo's mother Belladonna, and both of them were daughters of Gerontius, the Old Took ...

Thank you for that information, Gandolorin! My avatar was originally Pippin, but since Frodo is my favorite character, I decided to change it, not really paying attention to his complex family tree. This whole place seems rather dead right now. I have been wanting to role-play for some time now, but no one is around.

It’s true there are less members active than in the past. But you can still find some, if you look . I believe the games forum still has a very active bunch of people, if you feel like playing games. It’s not RPG exactly, but still fun.

I compare our current state to Imladris: full of knowledge and with unexpected pleasant people around the corner. But not so full anymore with singing and laughing elves as in the early days. More like a cozy comfortable place for an autumn afternoon, with a quiet talk and a good book near the fire.

Thanks, gondolinian. Your comparison of this site to Imladris is very accurate. I will definitely check out the games forum.
