Quote from the Isle of Estë
Enjoy these lines from Sam Gamgee’s song:
“Above all shadows rides the sun
and stars forever dwell.
I will not say the day is done,
nor bid the stars farewell.”
The end of December and beginning of January is a holiday season in several religions and many countries of the world. The Realm of Estë wishes everybody Happy Holidays, whatever special day you may be celebrating!
Wanted: Active, Enthusiastic New (or returning) Members!

The Star Of EstÃ« has been created to be awarded to the member who in the Realm leaders opinions has most embodied the spirit of the Realm of EstÃ«. The award will be given to one realm member each month. It is often a very difficult descision to choose among our members who are contributing to our Realm. All your efforts are much appreciated.
Congratulations and Thanks to each of the following:-
Remmirath October's Star of EstÃ«
Morwenna November's Star of EstÃ«
Malifur14 December's Star of EstÃ«
Merenwen~Goldsand January's Star of EstÃ«
rider_of_rohan32190 February's Star of EstÃ«
Charter for the Realm of EstÃ«
First and foremost we strive for the good of the Council of Elrond. Realms are intended to provide a new and exciting way for interaction between people on the site, to have fun, and to help build the community. In that spirit, there will be no aggressive or untoward competitiveness between Realms. Name-calling, or otherwise inappropriate or derisive behavior will not be allowed.
Members of the Realm of EstÃ« should:-
- be gentle and calm
- strive to heal others of their hurts and weariness
- make others feel restful in their presence
- tend to the well being of the spirit
- eminate a feeling of peace
Choose your Realm carefully.
We ask that you do not switch Realms without contacting the Realm head.
Members of the realm of EstÃ« may either: mention in your sig file that you are a member of the realm of EstÃ« , but may not put down other Realms, or boast about your own being the best OR may include the insignia of EstÃ« in your sig file. You may not do both.
This is the Insignia for The Realm of EstÃ«
To insert this into your signature, place the following code into your signature box:
The Realm of EstÃ« will not accept the following behaviour:-
- breaking the rules on regular basis,
- starting a fight, either with internal Realm members, or members of another Realm
- being rude or offensive to any other Realm member
- ignoring requests to follow the rules
- excessive negativity
- anything else that might disrupt the Realm environment or make other members feel uncomfortable
All normal site and forum rules apply to the Realms.
Anyone found breaking the aforementioned rules will cause their Realm to lose points, and face the possibility of being asked to leave their Realm.
The Head of the Realm makes the final decision about removing people from the Realm.
One unique feature of the Realms is that members can earn points for their Realms in the same manner that they earn personal points on the site. For every personal point that a member earns from contributing to the site, the member's Realm also earns a point. However, unlike personal points, Realm points can be taken away if a member breaks the rules of their Realm.
There are two leaders underneath the Head of the Realm of EstÃ« . One is appointed, one is elected, and both serve 3 month terms. They may not serve more than 2 total terms.
Leaders may be removed at the behest of the Realm Head for the following reasons:
- neglecting their duties
- not getting things done in a timely fashion
- trying to take the Realm into a place not consistent with its purpose
- flaunting authority
- bragging about their 'leader' status
- Giving special treatment to their friends
- discouraging members from joining other realms
As a Realm leader they should be an example of working 'together' with realms, and they should be people with the attitude of "the good of the Council" at all times.
- Build a Herb Garden â€“ EstÃ« was a healer so the realm should find out more about the herbs she used.
- Build a collection of Elvish speaking sound files.
- Find the Star Constellations- EstÃ« walked at night and was therefore very close to the stars.
- Contribute to the collection of Tolkien poetry on site.
Inactive Members Purge
Those who had been members of EstÃ« for over a year, but totally inactive, and didn't answer in due time to the private message asking if they're still around, have been removed from the realm memberlist. If this has happened to you accidentally - for example, you didn't get the PM for some reason - and you would still want to belong in the Realm of EstÃ«, you're welcome to rejoin!
