This is our Realm song:
Trees and hounds, horses and music
Life in a woodland Realm
Collect your bows and daggers front
The dawn calls us to hunt
The hounds call out and the trees reply
Mounted on our horses we fly
Quick-silver through our wilderness homeland
A song in our hearts
Walking thru the forest, we do not fear the night
The stars above guide us, and keep our paths in light
And journey on from dusk til’ morn,
We hear the call of Orome’s horn.
Thanks to all our members who contributed to the composing of this song
and a special thank you to Mellon for arranging it for us
Music by Lingalad “Navadrom”
Oromë is one of the Aratar, the eighth most powerful of Valar. He is the spouse of Vána the Ever-Young, the younger sister of Yavanna. In Yavanna's woods he is often found with his folk and his beasts to train them for hunting Melkor's monsters. He loves all trees and spends most of his time in the woods. For this he is called Aldaron in Quenya, or Tauron in Sindarin, both meaning 'Lord of the Forests'. He holds a great love for the lands of Middle-Earth; he was the last of the Valar to come to Valinor. He did return often to ride across the lands, and so he was the first of the Valar (except for Melkor) to have found the First Born Children of Ilúvatar, which he named the Eldar. When he found the first, most of them hid from him, for Melkor had been spreading lies among them, saying that he was a Dark Rider that would hunt and devour them. And so they feared him. But those that were brave stayed, and they saw that he was no dark creature, for the light of Aman shone bright in his face. They feared him no more and he became a mediator between the Eldar and the Valar. Oromë is a great huntsman, but he does not hunt animals for sport or for nurture. He hunts the monsters and wild beasts of Melkor to rid the world of them. With him are hounds and horses, in which he delights. The horse he rides is Nahar, a stallion white in the sun and sliver shining at night. He also carries a great horn, Valaróma, of which the sound is louder than any horn ever heard. It is said the sound is like the upcoming of the Sun in scarlet, or sheer lightning cleaving the clouds.
The Realm of Oromë Charter
Rules All normal site and forum rules apply to the Realms. Anyone found breaking the aforementioned rules will face the possibility of being kicked out of their Realm. The following actions can get you kicked out of a Realm: - 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 The Head of the Realm makes the final decision about kicking people from the Realm.
Choosing A Realm Choose your Realm carefully. You may not switch out of a realm into a new one until you've been a member of the Realm for 3 months. In very rare cases, if a member is having troubles in a house before the 3 months is over, they may request a transfer, but the final decision is at the behest of the Admin (Head) overseeing the house.

Which Realm do you belong to? You may do one of the following: mention in your sig file that you are a member of a Realm OR you may include an insignia (only one) in your sig file. You may notdo both. You may not put down other Realms, or boast about your own being the best.
old new *** To add either one of our realm insignias to your signature, add the following code as the first thing to your signature box: old: new: *** If you can't see the code or have any trouble adding the insignia to your signature, check the realm forum or PM fogriipus for help! :) Realm Leaders There are two Realm Leaders underneath the Head of the Realm. One is appointed, one is elected, and both serve 3 month terms. They may not serve more than 2 total terms in a row. Leaders may be removed at the behest of the 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 - favoritism - 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.
