The Bare Nessa-cities
A song parody of Bare Necessities from Disney’s “The Jungle Book” by our own Nelvellon
Look for the bare Nessa-sities, The simple bare Nessa-sities, Forget about your worries and your strife!
I mean the bare Nessa-sities, Llamas and poptart recepies, Let’s bring the Realm of Nessa back to life!
Wherever I wander, Wherever I roam, I couldn’t be fonder of my forum!
The Nessians running as they please, With sponges just to have at me, Look behind you don’t close your eyes, Or you will get a soaked surprise! Come in and grab a sponge!
The bare Nessa-sities of life will come to you, they’ll come to you.
Look for the bare Nessa-sities, the simple bare Nessa-sities. Forget about your worries and your strife! I mean the bare Nessa-sities, Llamas and poptart recipies, Let’s bring the Realm of Nessa back to life!
Now when you pick a Sponge fight, or Alpaca unfair, and you get the worst end, well next time, beware.
Dont pick a sponge fight without shouting, If you’re alpaca’d don’t be pouting! Us Nessians like to have our fun, If you like a fun group, we’re the one!
Don’t you wish you were one, too?
Current Realm News
We’ve certainly had an active month! A hearty thanks to all my wonderful realmers for keeping me so busy counting posts for the Nessa Challenge. Its wonderful!!! Mareth has created a new game in our game forum, and on the site games forum called “Chain game” in which each post the poster must add a word starting with the next letter in the alphabet to create one long, and really wacky sentence. It’s great fun, and I encourage you all to try it!
I’m naming Nelvellon our New Member of the Month for all her activity and just embracing her wonderful Nessianess!!! You’re wacky, and we love it! Congrats Nel!!!
Other than our fun abusing the “hacker”, there really hasn’t been too much new happening. Poor lil hacker, I wonder what we’ll have him do after he cleans out the llama stables??? *grins evilly* Teach him to mess with our beloved CoE!!! HAVE AT YOU!!!!
March 20, 2013
Been awhile since my last news update, but we have been very busy indeed! I am naming Mareth as our new MoTM, for all her hard work in keeping the Realm active! Congrats Mareth!!!
Currently, we are trying to revive old members and get them active again around the Realm. We have dubbed this Zombinessathon…so feel free to send out some PM-s and get some old realmies active! We’ve also added a fun new twist to llama, llama, alpaca…so be sure to check that out!
November 5, 2012
Sorry I haven’t updated in awhile! We have a few new members I’d like to warmly welcome! Mareth_Ravenlock and Dwellerofthewest have given our forums a nice dusting welcome to our Nessainity!!!
I have updated the Nessa Challenge and will be doing a new Random Discussion in the near future,so look forward to that! Since this month contains Thanksgiving I’d like to say that I am very thankful to serve as Realm Head to such a delightfully silly and caring bunch of individuals. May your Poptarts stay fresh and tasty thank you!!
May 22, 2012

April 8, 2012
Suilad! I hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter! Not a whole lot going on right now in the realm. We finally finished our Inter-realm project with Vaire. I’ll let everyone know as soon as its published to the site. We need some kinda new contest to inspire us all to log in and post more often. Any suggestions??
Also, a hearty welcome to our newest member, propertyoflegolas!!! Watch for flying sponges!!! That’s all for now.
March 17, 2012
Hello realmers! As some of you may have noticed, CoE has changed a bit. Rivka still has some sections down, but our beloved realm is still alive and kicking! We’re currently still working on “The Worst Hobbit Script Ever” so feel free to stop in snd move the story along. Currently, Bilbo and the dwarves are floating towards Laketown.
Also, since we don’t have poll options right now (no word on if it’s coming back yet) we can’t do our weird surveys. I therefore have started a new thread! “Random Topic” will be goong for however long we can’t do surveys, or longer if you guys enjoy it.
That’s all for now. I encourage all of you, new and old members alike, to check out the new CoE! Thanks, and happy 10th anniversary CoE!
Valar/Realm Information Page
"[Tulkas'] spouse was Nessa, the sister of Orome, and she also is lithe and fleetfooted. Deer she loves, and they follow her train whenever she goes in the wild; but she can outrun them, swift as an arrow with the wind in her hair. In dancing she delights, and she dances in Valimar on lawns of never-fading green. And it is sung that in that feast of the Spring of Arda Tulkas espoused Nessa the sister of Orome and she danced before the Valar upon the green grass of Almaren." ~Excerpts from the Valaquenta and the Quenta Silmarillion found in J.R.R. Tolkien's Silmarillion. The author gave very little mention of the Lesser Valier, or Queens of the Valar. In fact, Nessa's name is mentioned only thrice in all the pages of the Silmarillion, all before the second chapter of the Quenta Silmarillion.
What to say about us Nessians??? We're a fun-loving bunch that's ready to laugh at anything. We're obsessed with llamas, poptarts, and the ancient art of Sponge Fighting. We love playing games, and have too many thread games to list off here, but trust...we got game...s....lol. We're also fond of writing. We always have inter-active parodies or stories going. Most importantly, we're caring and close-knit. We're a little family here on CoE, and do our best to uphold each other through any crisis, no matter how big or how small. We're quick to love, and slow to judge, and eager to make new friends, so if any of this appeals to you so far, please consider joining us!
IndilwenLanathiel: "Nessa means more to me than Poptarts and Llamas(though those are two things that make this Realm so special to me). I love being here and chatting/talking/be silly with all you Nessians because I can be myself. I don't have to worry about walking on eggshells or offending someone because I made a typo.
When I first joined I was so careful not to make one typo, say one thing that might be taken just a little bit wrong, or do anything that might be frowned upon. It took a while before I realized that wouldn't happen. Here, people take each other the way they are, don't make fun of each other, and don't try to change each other to make themselves happy."
Vanyar: "To me, Nessa has always been about sharing laughs with people who are just as crazy as I am, sharing concerns with those in need, and giving or recieving guidance when days seem a little dark. This group has been there for me always,"
ILoveEowyn1: "This realm has always been a place I liked to go when I needed a laugh, a pick me up, or just a *huggle*. I'm so happy to have been a part of this crazy-awesome realm of Nessa for 7 years now. You guys are the best!! :hug: *huggles all around* :hug: "
We Nessians love working with our fellow Realmers on various projects and contests. If you think you have a great idea for an inter-realm project or event, feel free to pm me, or another realm head and we'll see if we can make it happen!
The Worst "The Hobbit" Script Ever
Art by ElwingandEarendil of Vaire
This was an inter-realm project between us and Vaire. It currently resides in the Fan-Fiction part of the Fan Creations bit of the site. It was great fun working with our friends in Vaire, and I hope to do so again anytime! ElwingandEarendil made this awesome graphic to commemorate our collaborartion.
Created many moons ago, by many members who are no longer active, but we still proudly display it, for its sheer awesomeness!!! Interested in being added on? Pm me, and I'll see what I can do!
This one we did at the Realm party in 2011. Talk about having a BLAST!!! Input was from all other participating Realms.
Welcome to the Realms and the Realm of Nessa!
The basic purpose of the Realms is to help build a sense of community among the members of the Council of Elrond and to provide a means for members to interact and have fun. The Realm of Nessa is headed by vanyar. If you have any questions regarding this realm, please feel free to PM her and she will do her best to either answer your questions or direct you to someone who can.
Certain characteristics are essential to a Member of the Realm of Nessa:
- Nessa was a kind and joyful Valar. Therefore, a Member of her Realm shall display a joyous and caring attitude when representing her to the rest of the site.
- Nessa delighted in dancing. We must strive to reflect her dancing and lilting spirit and try to bring light-heartedness to our fellow Council Members.
- Nessa was a swift runner. While some might not be great athletes, this characteristic can be displayed by completing any and all tasks given to a member in a timely manner and efficiently help in any realm projects.
Any members who join must remain in our realm for 3 months time, unless they have exceptional reasons to leave early. Any wishing to leave the realm before their time is up please PM me so we can talk about your reason for wanting to leave. I also delete inactive members from time to time. If you have fallen inactive, and I have sent you a pm warning you about your imminent deletion, don't be surprised if you end up deleted. I do give fair warning, and am willing to forgive legitimate reasons for inactivity.
Rules and Guidelines for Realm Heads and Leaders, as put forth by Rivka herself:
- appoint one leader, and oversee the election of a second leader, every 3 months
*Smaller realms may just have one until such time 2 is needed.
- meet with leaders on a regular basis (I'd define "regular" as at least once a month) over chat, PM, or other suitable means to discuss Realm activities, direction, or anything else necessary
- appoint or validate any other realm staff, such as welcomers, as desired
- be open to suggestions or ideas from other realm members as far as activities
- organize, or appoint the leaders to organize, specific realm activities -- this requires some actual time and effort on your part.
- Contact LadyCeleborn to set permissions for new leaders.
- deal with problem members/situations within your realm (severe situations should be brought to the attention of Rivka)
- investigate inter-realm activities and cooperation
- update your Realm news regularly, or delegate the task to your leaders
- make sure your Realm charter and info are up to date
- read your Realm forum regularly, and stay aware of the issues and discussions within
- report on a regular basis (once a month) the activities of your realm in the Realm Admin forum
- read the Realm Admin forum regularly
- overall, provide a direction for the Realm, and be an active leader, as best befits your Realm
- moderate the Realm forums regularly
- organize Realm activities, as directed by the Realm Head
- meet with your Realm Head on a regular basis
- report problems directly to Realm Head
- update realm news, as directed by the Realm Head
- answer Realm specific questions (i.e. "What is your Realm like?") over PM or in the General Realms forum
- encourage cooperation and friendliness among your Realm members
- overall, help to make the Realm a friendly place that people will want to participate in.
Replacement of Realm Leaders
Each Realm should have 2 leaders. One is elected, and one is appointed by the Realm Head. Each serves a 3 month term. Leaders should not serve more than two consecutive terms in a row.
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
Also, We have a Realm Insignia and a Realm Banner should you like to proudly display them in your signature. To do this, simply go to Edit your forum options and then scroll down to your signature.
To put in the Realm Insignia:
insert your cursor where you wish your image to be, then click "insert image" button on the toolbar. (it's the one that looks like a picture) simply type, or cut and paste the following link in the space between the img brackets.
November 9, 2011 Hello Realmers! After some careful thought and consideration, Maianna has stepped down as Head of the Realm and I am taking her place. Maia is currently very busy with college, and we both think that this is for the best. I'd like to thank Maia most sincerely for her time with us and her amazing contributions as our beloved Head Llama. Now then, in other news.... Indilwen_Lanathiel has been appointed as our new Birthday Wagoneer! Congrats Indi!!! We have re-vamped the Birthday List, so please check in and make sure you're name and birthday is on the list if you want an e-card sent to you. We also have some exciting contests going on right now!!! We have a captions contest, a photo contest, and a llama trivia contest! So stop by, have a poptart, and get sillynessa!!! ~vanyar August 1, 2011 Hello Everybody! Well, unfortunately we have been a little slow this summer, but we have really started to pick up the activity recently. I would officially like to say Welcome Back everyone! Some great things are about to start both on CoE and in our Realm. The one I would like to announce at the moment is the Realm Parties! Nessa's Realm PArty will be from September 15th to September 29th. So stop by the realm and help us plan for what we are going to do. Its time to show CoE that Nessa is back and ready for fun! I hope to see you around! ~Maianna June 10, 2011 "A Very Important Contest" Hey Everyone! There is going to be a new section in the MultiMedia part of the site featuring banners. To start it off, we're doing a contest in the realm to see who's banner will get submitted as the banner for Nessa! Each member can submit 3 banners, and each banner must be 450 x 60 pixels. All banners must be submitted by June 26th, and we'll leave voting on them open until June 29th. For more info, please visit our Sceptor's Arena subforum in the Realm! Thank you, and have fun with this one!!! ~Maia May 27, 2011 Hey Everybody!! Like the flowers in spring, Nessa has been coming out of its slumber and waking up! A lot has been going on recently in our realm, and even more is planned. But first, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Maianna (Maia for short). I am the new Realm Head (or Ness: Head Llama as we (the leaders and head of Nessa) are calling ourselves. A little birdie told me that Nessa needed a new Realm Head and, having loads of time on my hands, I volunteered. Nessa sounds like it is a GREAT realm and just needs a little more action. I love to help and always have tons of ideas floating around in my head, so I thought this would be a lot of fun and a great way to spend my free time, and make more friends. I hope to live up to all your standards as a realm head and I promise to do my very best. Now for the exciting stuff, here is what we have going on in the realm and what we are planning to bring in: Contests – We have started and are about to start many contests. We currently have going a Parody Contest where a scenario is given to you, and you have to write what happened. This week is really funny, but you will have to go there and find out! Here is the link: Parody Contest page the winner of the contest will get their submission into the Humor section on CoE, it will be posted on FaceBook, and it will be announced right here on our realm page! The winner will also get to choose and judge the next topic. We also have a very new and exciting contest going called our Twitter Contest. Yes that’s right; We have our very own Nessa Twitter account and page! If you win, you will not only be announced here on our realm page and facebook page, but you will also have control of our twitter account for 1 week! You will get to post anything you want!

September 15, 2003 Woohoo! The banner is back! Thank you, Little2, for helping me out with it! September 7, 2003 Because of some changes to the site, the banner for the Realm of Nessa was lost. Unfortunately, I did not have it saved onto my hard drive. I'm going to try and re-produce it. My apologies. ~*Vala*~ September 6, 2003 Thank you to our Charter Members, those who joined the Realm of Nessa in its first month, for making it so much fun! Thanks for making our first month a great one!
