ARGG

Any Hobbit meat around here? I'm lookin to chow down.

A Balrog in a coal mine sounds like quite the fire hazard. One Balrog sneeze, and the Blue Mountains would become known as the Middle-earth equivalent of Centralia.

In the book Piglet is shown to possess great power — a common interpretation of the word Te, which more commonly means Virtue — not only because he is small, but also because he has a great heart or, to use a Taoist term, Tz'u.

A lovely interpretation. And in more generalised terms, this is the hobbit spirit. Sam carries it and it shines in his actions, but also Frodo, Pippin, Merry. And back home, Fredegar Bolger, too. Lobelia. Farmer Cotton...

Welcome, welcome... I mean... I guess it's advisable for The Free Land of Halflings to bolt their round doors?! :D

The sticker on the back of the truck reads I passed through Mordor and lived to tell the tale.

Yes, absolutely Samwise as the Te of Middle Earth.

I love those books, too. It's been awhile since I have read them, though, even longer since I have read the Tao de Ching **updates reading list**

I think it is advisable for The Hobbit too-oh, too late.

Mmmm, halflings you say?

They taste quite good skewered on an open flame!

No admittance except on party business!
No, wait.... ... ...

Great discussion, wonderfully imaginative region!

But we can't stay forever. Many, many thanks for your warm welcome and your kind hospitality.

Well the appropriate fare thee well is surely..

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes, a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king

My Sindarin is a bit rusty. Ta-ta will have to do.
Thank you for hosting us.

Time to roll on.
Adios.

Welp, 'twas a lovely stay. But I must be going! I'll make a nice photo album with the pictures I've taken to remember you all by!

*floats off into the sunset*
Thanks for hosting us!

Destined to Drift,
why what a blessing indeed,
to trek over mountains, and take dips in the sea.

Bon Voyage!

Yo HO HO,

Gimme Hobbit thumb stew,
With a pint of ale, well, maybe a few!

Namárië!

The Sindar might say:
Navaer!

Happy travels all.

Gollum! Gollum!

A giant THANK YOU to the region for all its kindness. As Geese said earlier, we must keep moving.

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

Bless you.

The Flock has voted: Middle Earth is hereby inducted into the Guild of the Magical Realms!

Technically we're a magical realm by default.. but glad you all enjoyed your stay - now we have to do the dishes..

Oh, what a cool list of regions in that dispatch. Do you all compile lists of regions which meet other criteria than "magical"?

EDIT:

A telegram from the Balloonists, kindly answering my query:

The Guild of the Magical Realms actually has little to do with "magic" at all, it's a list of the best regions we have encounter over our years and years of long travel. The RMB post below shows you the criteria we use to nominate regions. While certainly Middle Earth's regional character played a part in our selection, most of the region's we admit have a regional character that does not revolve around magic. The Flock has determined Middle Earth to be among the best regions we've visited, a very short list, and we thank and congratulate you on your induction.
