The Lord of the Rings Fanatics Plaza Write Your Name in Elvish in Ten Minutes Write Your Name in Elvish in Ten Minutes You want to write your name in Elvish, but every place you go seems to make it harder than it ought to be. Elvish writing looks beautiful and mysterious, but does it really have to be impossible to understand? Here's the alphabet. That's it. Generally the vowels go above the consonants, but sometimes, in the case of Y and silent E, they go below. The straight line underneath is just one way to make one character do the work of two. The line above a consonant means that a nasal N or M precedes the consonant in question. Here's one last example with two different letter combinations. I am often asked how to handle double vowel situations. That's all you need to get started. Please be aware that there are many ways to write English words in Elvish. Good luck!

The Grey Havens - The Ultimate J.R.R. Tolkien Resource Web Page Weapons Weapons are tools and objects designed for hunting or warfare and in the world of Arda they have been used for both. Origins (speculative) and History Edit As the Valar used the powers of the Ainur given to them by Eru, they had no real use for handheld weapons at least not any of any recognizable conventions, and their greatest champion bore no weapon and fought only with his hands. As Melkor began corrupting and despoiling the world creating many unnatural monsters, weapons became necessary or at the very least preferred for Oromë was a great hunter and was often in Middle-earth hunting these unnatural abominations. The weapons that he used were probably fashioned by him or perhaps Aulë assisted him, as he worked with and used many hand tools. The elves in Cuiviénen no doubt fashioned their own weapons or perhaps fathomed their use. List of known Canonical weapons Noted Weapons Edit Aeglos Edit Aeglos was a spear that belonged to Gil-galad. Anglachel and Gurthang 'Hail Gurthang! Anguirel Grond

The World of Tolkien's Hobbit | Art Beat Since its first publication in 1937, J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” has been adapted into a 1970s cartoon, a Russian animated short and fan-fiction musicals and parodies. But no adaptation may more closely resemble Bilbo Baggins’ greatest adventure as Peter Jackson’s film “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” which premieres in U.S. theaters Friday. Jackson’s cinematic vision couldn’t have been conceived without the imagination of Tolkien, whose creation of intricate languages and dynamic characters are immortalized in the inimitable world of Middle Earth. Earlier this week, we talked to Jason Fisher, author of “Tolkien and the Study of his Sources,” about Tolkien’s ability to bridge mythology and language, and his constant revisions: Tolkien, who was a member of the Inklings at Oxford, studied Old and Middle English literature. How did language play into his creation of mythology? “The Hobbit” went through three editions from its first publishing. Jason Fisher: Indirectly, yes.

Narsil "...and the sword of Elendil filled Orcs and Men with fear, for it shone with the light of the sun and of the moon, and it was named Narsil." —The Silmarillion, Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age Narsil was the powerful sword wielded by King Elendil of the Dúnedain, during the war between the Last Alliance of Elves and Men and Sauron of Mordor, at the end of the Second Age. History Edit The sword was forged during the First Age by the Dwarven smith Telchar, the most renowned weaponsmith of Nogrod. The sword's name is a portmanteau of the elvish words Anar ("Sun") and Isil ("Moon"). Narsil's most famous bearer was Elendil. Isildur took the shards home with him. The shards of Narsil were passed down as an heirloom by the heirs to the throne of Arnor among the Dúnedain of the North. Before the Fellowship of the Ring departed Rivendell on the Quest of the Ring, the shards of Narsil were reforged by the elves into Andúril, which Aragorn carried throughout the Quest and the War of the Ring.

The Encyclopedia of Arda The Encyclopedia of Arda is a personal project - a tribute to and a celebration of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. The site is evolving into an illustrated hypertext encyclopedia of Tolkien's realms and peoples. It already contains about four thousand entries, and we're constantly adding new entries and expanding existing ones. Inside the encyclopedia The Encyclopedia of Arda contains thousands of articles covering topics from J.R.R. You'll also find a selection of interactive tools, including a chronicle to help you explore Tolkien's fictional history, and calendar to translate dates and events, a lexicon of names, a glossary of old and rare words, and much more. Context and approach The content of the Encyclopedia is written in the same context as Tolkien himself used; he presented himself simply as a translator, rather than originator of the tales. About the name Arda Special thanks But the real Special Thanks, though, belong to the memory of J.R.R.
