Sure, it would be fun to look at. If I have some time next year, I'm up for participating for a while again.

The day to day business of running the region remains of course in the hands of those who have their WA membership here to help protect this region. I appreciate it, and I appreciate your dispatch Dwarven Mines, just can't cut my WA membership in two.

Fighting zombies is an amusing once-a-year effort. Who else wants to be in an anti-zombie committee? We could already prepare a strategic dispatch together, from the lessons learned here and in other regions.

Red Star of the West wrote:Hi everyone, visiting Middle Earth from my very quiet home of Philosophy 115. I have admired JRRT and his works for many, many years, so glad to see he has a home in Nation States.

Welcome. You have a very nice region in Philosophy 115.

I like the idea of an "anti-zombie committee", I fully support that, but I would like to know what the inhabitants think...

You say "anti-zombie committee" - I hear Anti-Zombie White Council :)

Hey, don't go accusing any of us of developing STDs..

The short speech by Christopher Tolkien is touching. He's over 90 years old now. At this age, sometimes childhood memories can appear all the more clearly.

Glad you like it. If we decide to plan ahead to do it, and you're around for the occasion next year, hopefully you can do the influence-cost free lockdown again. I don't think we'd have a chance, if zombie-exporting nations came in and joined the throng. The current poll is open to all nations in the world. A few may need to be discounted, if everyone and their distant Brandybuck cousin drops in.

Noldoria, it fits the anti-necromancer theme.

No danger. I'm sure Bombadil is faithful to Lady Goldberry.

Yeah, I did not realize, for many years now I have not generated a poll so ... The ballot box is open once again!

Lady Eowyn wrote:I should explain that my father used to work very very late at night, for his painting and writing. And I, when I was very very young, very very very young, at night, I used to worry about my father, in that way: was he still alive? One night, when the whole house was silent, I went downstairs to find my father, and there he was. I was so relieved that, poor little idiot, I started to cry, and one of the tears, one tear, but a substantial one, fell on the painting. Imagine that! But my father wasn't angry at all. What he did was he got his small paintbrush, and he rubbed out every trace of the tear. And he had to change the leaves in the tree a little bit. Because the tear had fallen on the beautiful tree in the foreground. The title of the painting is Rivendell. And in this house, Frodo said the words that are fundamental in The Lord of the Rings. He said: 'I will take the Ring, though I do not know the way.'

Wow. That story shook me.

I wonder what it's like to grow up the child of someone who looms so large as J.R.R. Tolkien? And considering how much of Christopher Tolkien's own life has been spent preserving and carrying on his father's memory and legacy...I imagine it's a rather unique life.

Agreed. That story was pretty touching to me.

Greetings Middle Earth! Today's poll - on the silly side again - is about one of Tolkien's literary devices, onomatopoeia. As there are many, this time round they are only taken from The Hobbit. And it doesn't even yet include the most famous one: Gollum, Gollum! That will have to wait until another round.
