About the Valar Guild:
Guild came into existence October 4,1997.
We still have a number of the original members and
have not yet missed having a Sunday meeting.
We are a guild for literate, polite people who want
to actually play a
game. Courtesy is also to be given to the "enemy".
Valar Guild full members are
Tolkien fans who
enjoy writing and
chatting about Tolkien-inspired subjects and
playing online games to which we give a Tolkien theme.
site includes Gaming and Tolkien.
Tolkien interests include all works
including Lord of the Rings, which are the source for inspiring these
articles, stories, poetry,
humor, art, language work, and book reviews.
play many games. Our the current favorite is Lord of the Rings Online
(the official Valar Guild branch is on Turbine's Landroval server).
Our number two game is World
WarCraft (official branches in the Americas are on the Lothar server
for Alliance and Uldaman server for Horde; in Europe on the Argent Dawn
server for Alliance). Other games played are Diablo I, Diablo II:
Lord of Destruction, StarCraft/
BroodWar, WarCraft III/Frozen
Throne, Dark Age of Camelot, EverQuest, Eve Online. We use
our Tolkien-named characters (for recognition and theme) in legit,
cooperative play style.
Each full member owns his
own Tolkien character to interact with the others in ready-made
relationships, yet in a friendly manner even if one is an Elf and the
other an Orc. The name helps in recognition for gaming, articles, the
Forum, and Sunday AIM meetings. Maiar and Valar honor names have to be
earned after earning full membership.
Tolkien-only members work only with our Tolkien
Guild-friends are non-member gamers of the same
philosophy who have not yet passed the minimum requirement to read Lord of the Rings , but who
like to play with us anyway.
We allow membership in other guilds, clans, kinships
etc, as long as this causes the Valar Guild no harm.
Your general contact for anything concerning the
Valar Guild or Tolkien is Varda.
