bnetValar (16:48:45): Varda-(Valar) (Bnet): !restart SigmaChat
(16:50:16) VardaValar1 has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Aiya :-)
VardaValar1: Got part of the bridge working. Still wrestling it
Menelvagor Valar: Aiya
bnetValar: Varda-(Valar) (Bnet): Bnet's working. Nothing on SigmaChat.
bnetValar: Varda-(Valar) (Bnet): Can't tell on IRC
Menelvagor Valar: I can check, but I doubt it
Menelvagor Valar: no one in IRC
Menelvagor Valar: it's odd there's no one here yet
VardaValar1: I haven't invited anyone yet ;-)
Menelvagor Valar: except for the two of us that is *smile*
VardaValar1: I was trying to get the Bridge to work
Menelvagor Valar: not many on AIM either
VardaValar1: Many can't seem to come in without an invitation
VardaValar1: Tomorrow is July 4th. Lots of folk out of town
Menelvagor Valar: ah, of course
VardaValar1: Weekend running around to places that allow fireworks, like their grandparents
Menelvagor Valar: and for many people summer break has already, or is about to start
VardaValar1: Then they have no excuse not to be here ;-)
Menelvagor Valar: they do if they are going on holiday
VardaValar1: Did you see the bridge on IRC?
Menelvagor Valar: lots of people plan their holidays on the very same minute summer holiday starts
VardaValar1: Aye
Menelvagor Valar: unless I am online on the wrong server, nope, no bridge
VardaValar1: They can't come because they are at school, work, or on vacation. So when can people come? : )
Menelvagor Valar: when Easter and Christmas are held on the same day, I guess
VardaValar1: hehe
Eonwe Valar has entered the room.
GilraenV has entered the room.
GilraenV: Aiya
VardaValar1: When east and west meet : )
VardaValar1: Aiya!
Menelvagor Valar: too bad Phar isn't here
Eonwe Valar: hey
VardaValar1: bnet Valar works, but I can't get the others going yet
VardaValar1: Still working on it
Menelvagor Valar: I really want to tell him I spent the weekend about 10 miles from his place *wink*
VardaValar1: hehe
Menelvagor Valar: too bad I had too much to do and no address or phonenumber I could reach him on so I might reschedule a bit :-P
VardaValar1: All my connections are very slow. Hope you guys are going to help save the transcript
VardaValar1: You can still email him. He checks it about every 4 days
Menelvagor Valar: unless I fall asleep behind my comp, I will (and that is a very real possibility, since it has been a very very busy and very exhausting weekend)
VardaValar1: Reason coffee was invented ;-)
Menelvagor Valar: that wouldn't have helped in the 2.5 days I stayed there
VardaValar1: I show time. Let's invite
Menelvagor Valar: I think coffee the 2nd most disgusting food/ beverage on the planet, so that won't do...
VardaValar1: Soda?
Menelvagor Valar: resistant to its effects
VardaValar1: I guess this is all we can bring in at the moment
VardaValar1: Lots of soda : )
VardaValar1: We must be the cream of the crop then ;-)
Menelvagor Valar: but I think that some quality comp time after a weekend without, I might just be inclined to simply ignore my sleepiness

VardaValar1 (17:07:22): Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo
VardaValar1: Membership News:
VardaValar1: Menelvagor needs caffeine
Menelvagor Valar: hah
Menelvagor Valar: I am online at my moms though
VardaValar1: Any further member news? Like do you know where everyone is?
Menelvagor Valar: so the new connection is up and runninh
Menelvagor Valar: running*
VardaValar1: Thank you to Menelvagor's mom!
VardaValar1: That's great!
VardaValar1: Farmer Maggot is traveling, but sends pictures via his blog
VardaValar1: The link is on the News
VardaValar1: The guy sleeping on the boat is Farmer : )
You have just entered room "valarguildmeetingplace."
VardaValar1: Aiya Phar!
ArPharazonV: sorry I'm late
LiberalHound has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Aiya Huan!
ArPharazonV: just had to finish the Monastery
VardaValar1: uh huh ;-)
ArPharazonV: finished all the quests, got the key, a new dagger and a new mace...
ArPharazonV: all in one very succesful first try :D
Menelvagor Valar: Aiya
VardaValar1: Congrats
ArPharazonV: thank you
ArPharazonV: Aiya all!
VardaValar1: Any further member news?
ArPharazonV: yes
VardaValar1: Go ahead, Phar
ArPharazonV: I'll be going on vacation starting next saturday
ArPharazonV: will be gone for 2 weeks
ArPharazonV: so will miss the meetings
VardaValar1: So the rest of us need to save transcripts : )
ArPharazonV: heheh
VardaValar1: Gwaihir at work, Gilraen?
VardaValar1: July 4th and WoW are taking their tolls on the meeting membership today
VardaValar1: May all of them be having fun!

VardaValar1 (17:13:56): Web News:
VardaValar1: Tolkien Encyclopedia updates should be done for the Elves and nearly for the Dwarves pages
VardaValar1: New article:
VardaValar1: "Gimli, after the War of the Ring" by Varda-(Valar)
VardaValar1: We had practically nothing on Gimli
VardaValar1: The Fellowship is neglected in our Encyc.
VardaValar1: The group seems to love the Sil though : )
VardaValar1: Farmer Maggot's blog is running pictures of his trip
ArPharazonV: what's not to love..
VardaValar1: Does the LotR have to be the sad stepchild, though?
VardaValar1: Updated the WoW Lothar player page a few minutes ago
Menelvagor Valar: seems unable to open the page
VardaValar1: Any further Web news?
Menelvagor Valar: too busy this week to do anything unfortunately
VardaValar1: Can't open? Or blank?
Menelvagor Valar: will update the trainers page coming week
Menelvagor Valar: can't open
Menelvagor Valar: says the page cannot be found
VardaValar1: eep. I'll try another upload
VardaValar1: I hope that didn't happen to the dwarf page work too
VardaValar1: Eonwe, any web news?
GilraenV: (sorry, had to go help mom sort socks. Gwai's sleeping)
Eonwe Valar: None from me at the moment
Menelvagor Valar: just found an image from FG's site using Google, probably temporary inability to access it
VardaValar1: np
VardaValar1: FM's site is being used at the moment for the bridge stuff. I wonder if that is messing with it
VardaValar1: Re-uploaded Lothar players
ArPharazonV: it's not the WoW-page that's not working
VardaValar1: FM's
ArPharazonV: aye
ArPharazonV: lothar players working fine
VardaValar1: If there is no further Web News,

VardaValar1 (17:22:13): Gaming News
VardaValar1: We don't seem to have a coherent Friday WoW gaming report for Lothar yet
VardaValar1: It was hardly a group effort, just Niequi and Fainan
VardaValar1: Should that be considered a reportable thing, Eonwe? [Note: Auros was present for the middle part]
Menelvagor Valar: Niequi is Ulmo, right?
VardaValar1: yes, early name
Menelvagor Valar: ok :-)
Eonwe Valar: I've posted reports with just me and one other before, so sure.
VardaValar1: Okies
Eonwe Valar: If people don't like it, they need to get involved too :}
VardaValar1: We ran alongside the shore of Feralas, zapping giants with a ray gun to shrink them, and attacking water elementals
ArPharazonV: heh
VardaValar1: A goblin requested materials from them, as he is trying to start a new shop in a dangerous area there. At least he has a tent up :-)
Menelvagor Valar: hehe
ArPharazonV: is that one of the new quests?
ArPharazonV: from the patch?
VardaValar1: I wouldn't know. It's new to me
VardaValar1: He's by the dock going to the island of Feathermoon, if that helps
ArPharazonV: not sure, have only been to Feralas a few times, and only to this border town
ArPharazonV: what's it called...
VardaValar1: Zapping Giants
Menelvagor Valar: now that's new, I've been there on several occasions, but haven't seen him yet
ArPharazonV: Thalanaar
ArPharazonV: that's the town
Menelvagor Valar: that's on the east side
ArPharazonV: I know
VardaValar1: amd Fuel for the Zapping
Menelvagor Valar: and it's not a town, but more like an outpost :-)
ArPharazonV: but it's the only place in Feralas I've visited
VardaValar1: I found my notes : )
ArPharazonV: so I really wouldn't know anything about questing there...
ArPharazonV: looks beautiful, though
VardaValar1: We also tried, in Tanaris, escorting the robot chicken, but it was bugged
Menelvagor Valar: you should be in level range to start questing there
VardaValar1: Aye, Phar : )
VardaValar1: Niequi dinged : )
ArPharazonV: congrats to Niequi then
VardaValar1: Then we were sent off to snap a picture of a hostile turtle named Gammerita
Menelvagor Valar: also, if you intend to quest there, get a quest from a troll guy in the harbor east of Gadget for a quest needed later in Sunken Temple
VardaValar1: Got it, thanks
ArPharazonV: I know, Menel, but still so many quests in other zones...
ArPharazonV: Stranglethorn, Swamp of Sorrows, Badlands, Dustwallow Marsh...
VardaValar1: Then we slaughtered yetis
VardaValar1: got the 4 flames for the Stave to take to the monolith
Menelvagor Valar: true, I probably skipped more than half of what's available, simply because I was doing other things elsewhere
VardaValar1: Ok, guess you guys want to talk?
Menelvagor Valar: never did any serious questing in the badlands or Stranglethorn
ArPharazonV: no, no, continue
Menelvagor Valar: whoops, got carried away, sorry
VardaValar1: Why don't you give the European report now? Go ahead
ArPharazonV: well... wasn't at the guild event this wednesday myself
Menelvagor Valar: due to changing my connections, I'm not completely up to date as to what happened last week, but I can give some member number
Menelvagor Valar: numbers*
VardaValar1: Are they Valar numbers?
Menelvagor Valar: counting Valar, we're at 4
ArPharazonV: indeed
ArPharazonV: Menel, Fladrif, Valandil and I
Menelvagor Valar: including non-valar, we're at 45
Menelvagor Valar: that number may increase by some 30, as negotiations for yet another merger is about to start
ArPharazonV: has any merger so far been truly succesful?
Menelvagor Valar: this will bring us up into the charts of the largest guilds on the servers, and probably breathing hard on the #1
Menelvagor Valar: I would like to think so
Menelvagor Valar: but truth be told, it's too early to say
VardaValar1: And it is held together how?
ArPharazonV: excellent leadership!
Menelvagor Valar: *bows*
VardaValar1: What do you do that attracts them in?
Menelvagor Valar: our simple, yet effective rules
VardaValar1: Which are?
Menelvagor Valar: no swearing, no leet talk, no abbrasiveness
ArPharazonV: don't kill thy fellow guildmember... :-D
VardaValar1: heh
Menelvagor Valar: basically all the Valar Guild rules
Menelvagor Valar: with the added exception that we are on an RP server
VardaValar1: Aren't those common rules?
Menelvagor Valar: yes, but not every guild or person sticks to those rules
Menelvagor Valar: or has such rules
Menelvagor Valar: and a guild that does state those rules become rather.... attractive...
VardaValar1: Where do you state them?
ArPharazonV: good question, that...
VardaValar1: Apparently so : )
VardaValar1: You certainly have the numbers
Menelvagor Valar: we're in the process of getting a new site (completely forum btw) where those rules will be states
Menelvagor Valar: stated*
ArPharazonV: hmm... might have to look that site up once in a while ;-)
VardaValar1: You are already attracting them in without a site
Menelvagor Valar: because one of our members, who was handling the previous site has dropped in activity quite a bit, we have decided we needed a new site
Menelvagor Valar: and it will be announced next tuesday
ArPharazonV: who was that?
Menelvagor Valar: well, I could account to that because of me being rather persuasive
Menelvagor Valar: Bimpwinkle, or Kadrim
VardaValar1: A club over the head? :-)
ArPharazonV: sounds familiar
Menelvagor Valar: quite the contrary
ArPharazonV: bribes?
VardaValar1: It would not help anyone believe your cause ; )
Menelvagor Valar: I'm making use of the politician way, without letting it show that I am using that way :-D
ArPharazonV: again: bribes?
VardaValar1: lol
VardaValar1: I've seen people do that. They get laughed at too
Menelvagor Valar: let's just say that I haven't earned the title "The one who knows the way with words" for no reason 8-)
Menelvagor Valar: which is, if I may add, one of many titles I have amassed already (laugh(
VardaValar1: So you talk to a lot of people, are charming, play nicely together?
Menelvagor Valar: yeah
VardaValar1: And don't have to mention Tolkien
Menelvagor Valar: aye
Menelvagor Valar: although I am thinking of introducing some Tolkien into the guild :-)
Menelvagor Valar: like setting Aiya and Namarie for regular greetings and goodbyes
Menelvagor Valar: adds something to the dimension of RP as well :-D
VardaValar1: If it is not a Tolkien group, it would not really make sense
Menelvagor Valar: well, that�s the politician part, I�m going to `disguise` it as an RP thing :-D
VardaValar1: Might have a special hi and bye of some kind though
ArPharazonV: we're not even all Elvish... and you want to bring in Quenya/Sindarin?
VardaValar1: We aren't all Elvish, and we use it ; )
ArPharazonV: heh
ArPharazonV: you, ma'am, have a good point
Menelvagor Valar: well, we do know that the Numenoreans used Sindarin for a long time
VardaValar1: Do you just talk to peopl and bring up the guild? Do you advertise it saying want to join the guild that is yada yada?
VardaValar1: Many of the learned scrolls were in Quenya too
Menelvagor Valar: well, usually the guild is brought up eventually as part of a conversation
VardaValar1: That sounds like how we do it : )
Menelvagor Valar: like I was on the boat some time back, and I found this guy unguilded on it
Menelvagor Valar: so I just asked him about the game in general, did some RP�ing
Menelvagor Valar: and casually brought up the guild, its rules and its command structure
Menelvagor Valar: it�s more or less a subconscious subversion of their minds to our `cause` :-D
VardaValar1: Is that what we did to you, Menel?
Menelvagor Valar: nope
Menelvagor Valar: it was my choice
Menelvagor Valar: in the end, it is the people who make the choice to join or not
VardaValar1: Subconscious subversion so that you think it is your choice ;-)
ArPharazonV: the Valar Mind-trick
VardaValar1: True
VardaValar1: True, Menel
Menelvagor Valar: it took you nearly 5 months to subvert me, Varda, doesn�t sound like subversion to me
VardaValar1: Slow it is
Menelvagor Valar: I remember emailing you for the first time in july �99
VardaValar1: Nope, not trying to subvert anyone. Just kidding around
Menelvagor Valar: I�d rather have someone sound of will and free of choice than a mindless slave anyways
ArPharazonV: I think I joined 12 days after I discovered the website...
Menelvagor Valar: way more fun to play with
VardaValar1: *bows*
ArPharazonV: would have been 5, had I had enough time to finish the test on the first Sunday...
Menelvagor Valar: well, back then, playing games on the net was a big issue for me, with a simple modem, and prices of phone internet being as high as they are
Menelvagor Valar: not to mention I didn�t like Diablo at the time
VardaValar1: Each free person can be the nucleus of keeping the guild going in the future
Menelvagor Valar: I was too eager to join not to give Diablo a spin though
VardaValar1: But Diablo was not the draw?
Menelvagor Valar: indeed Varda
Menelvagor Valar: nope
Menelvagor Valar: but I did get to like it a lot though
VardaValar1: :-)
Menelvagor Valar: I never ever regretted buying it, even though the game itself was at the time not the reason to buy it
Menelvagor Valar: I still remember half of Tristram strewn with items from Varda, Aule and Ulmo :-)
VardaValar1: hehe - fun
Menelvagor Valar: and me walking around in a daze at the wealth and splendor
VardaValar1: Stuff to trip over everywhere
Menelvagor Valar: and my big eyed amazement over getting Feanor�s Battle Mail
Menelvagor Valar: which is just about the unique version of godly plate of the whale
Menelvagor Valar: at least, in the ME mod
Menelvagor Valar: loved my 33 rogue with that warrior armor on my back
Menelvagor Valar: heavy to the extreme, but very protective
Menelvagor Valar: protecting*
VardaValar1: So what did bring you in?
Menelvagor Valar: I�m not really sure actually
VardaValar1: You remember what the email was about?
Menelvagor Valar: but I do know that I was just starting to like Tolkien, and had read Hobbit and LotR
GilraenV: I should go sleep, work in the morning (the weekend is far too short for my liking)
GilraenV (17:53:59): Namarie, folks
VardaValar1: Good night, Gil : )

Tolkien chat begins by accident:
Menelvagor Valar: also, because I was very insecure at the time, and needed a place of tranquility, and I think together with Tolkien, that is what attracted me in the Valar Guild
GilraenV has left the room.
VardaValar1: You were working on a story
Menelvagor Valar: I haven�t completely abandoned it, but I have more or less given up hope of publishing it
Menelvagor Valar: besides, with school coming up, I�ve got more pressing matters at hand
VardaValar1: You can still write shorter things for us : )
Menelvagor Valar: I know
Menelvagor Valar: but it seems poetry is what I am best at
Valandil Valar has entered the room.
Menelvagor Valar: even though some of my poems are a little childish
VardaValar1: We have a poetry section, no problem
VardaValar1: Aiya Valandil
Menelvagor Valar: Aiya Valandil
Menelvagor Valar: glad you could come
ArPharazonV: Aiya
Valandil Valar: aiya everybody
VardaValar1: Send the good, Tolkien ones, then, that you are proud of
VardaValar1: Glad you could make it, Val : )
Menelvagor Valar: most of what I�ve got are up already
VardaValar1: Most seem to be out for the Fourth of July and summer vacation
Menelvagor Valar: I usually write my poems in a blinding flash of inspiration
VardaValar1: Maybe you will be inspired again : )
Menelvagor Valar: I don�t doubt it
VardaValar1: Any further business from anyone?
Valandil Valar: we missed you on wow menelvagor
Menelvagor Valar: I�ve been away this weekend, uncle celebrated his 50th birthday
Menelvagor Valar: and hadn�t seen my family in like 4 or 5 years
Menelvagor Valar: I had to go
VardaValar1: He won't be doing that often : )
Menelvagor Valar: anyways, I think that the `Trollish ode to themselves� and `Rohirrim Battle Hymn` were my more brilliant ones :-)
VardaValar1: Those were fun : )
VardaValar1: Business meeting is over
VardaValar1: Tolkien chat
VardaValar1: Good spot to comment on poems like that : )
ArPharazonV: well, small bit of news... I finally got my printer working correctly again...
VardaValar1: Yay : )
Menelvagor Valar: too bad my Valar Guild poet got lost somewhere though
Menelvagor Valar: poem*
ArPharazonV: turns out we had the colored ink switched around.. yellow was where red should be and the other way around
VardaValar1: Not on the page?
Valandil Valar: still working on the sindarin list
ArPharazonV: that explained a lot!
VardaValar1: Thanks, Valandil : )
Menelvagor Valar: no, it got lost a year or 2 ago
Valandil Valar: anyone has ideas for sentences ?
VardaValar1: Maybe you can rewrite it even better, with more experience
Menelvagor Valar: hehe, I doubt it would be better
Menelvagor Valar: as it was straight from my heart, and those cannot be surpassed, not even by the most skilled of poets
VardaValar1: Val, have you looked at Irmo's role-playing section? They might be helpful translated to Sindarin
Valandil Valar: a poem is usually best the first time around
VardaValar1: Ok, Menel, you are getting yourself out of writing it.
Menelvagor Valar: no I�m not :-)
VardaValar1: Guess you'll have to think hard about a subject and let your feelings come up and write a totally new poem
Menelvagor Valar: I will rewrite it and recite it at next weeks meeting
ArPharazonV: I'll miss it :-(
Menelvagor Valar: I still remember bits and pieces about it
VardaValar1: How about sending it to the poetry section?
Menelvagor Valar: will do that as well
VardaValar1: Thanks : )
Menelvagor Valar: but since you are so intent on me rewriting it, I am intent on reciting it :-D
ArPharazonV: I'll read all the transcripts though!
VardaValar1: Some of the most entertaining were the ones from unusual viewpoints, from a troll's or orcs
VardaValar1: The dragons and balrogs
Menelvagor Valar: especially the trolls!
Menelvagor Valar: `
Menelvagor Valar: `With our maces great and long, if we slam ground it goes klong!`
VardaValar1: Val, did you ever type up a list of Sindarin you used to train your horse? Would not be all that long would it?
ArPharazonV: :-)
Valandil Valar: it is rather long yes, I use it to learn him tricks
Valandil Valar: even colours
VardaValar1: Ahh, cool!
VardaValar1: Is that the list you are working on? It would make a fun page alone
Menelvagor Valar: bet your horse�s name is Asfaloth too
Menelvagor Valar: or Voronwe
Valandil Valar: no Sam, or annun
Valandil Valar: then he would be called Nahar
VardaValar1: For those of us in the Meo/LotRo rp, I'm waiting for your next post after mine. ;-)
ArPharazonV: heh... not sure if I want to make my next one yet
Valandil Valar: can somebody explain ?
VardaValar1: Val reminded me, since I offered Estarion a ride
VardaValar1: Valandil, have you looked at the guild's Forum?
Valandil Valar: no, not really
VardaValar1: The role-playing text game is there
VardaValar1: Most of the ones writing it are in the chat room at the moment
Valandil Valar: ah ok
VardaValar1: Feel free to drop into the Forum, read, post
VardaValar1: We have a number of people who are mostly interested in languages
VardaValar1: If we could get all of you on the Forum together, it could be fun : )
VardaValar1: You need to set your display name to Valandil so we will know who you are.
VardaValar1: So, did everyone alt + tab to the Forum? : )
ArPharazonV: uhm... I did now
VardaValar1: It was so quiet, I wondered
Valandil Valar: how do u do that ?
Eonwe Valar: There's a link to the Forum on the Guild's Index page
VardaValar1: choose Forum
ArPharazonV: 1 Member, 2 Guests. Most users online was 10, Jun 6, 2005, 11:34pmArPharazon
ArPharazonV: I'm alone...
VardaValar1: Really?
VardaValar1: Sign in guys, so he won't feel alone
VardaValar1: There you go, I signed in
VardaValar1: It shows who is on the Forum in a line on the very bottom
ArPharazonV: great!
VardaValar1: I like the way Eonwe posted to put the WoW Friday gaming in that post. Well done : )
VardaValar1: You can also go to the bottom of the Forum to read the most recent messages
VardaValar1: Helps me a lot
Eonwe Valar: thanks :}
Menelvagor Valar: that reminds me..
VardaValar1: You're back : )
Menelvagor Valar: less than 2 months away from the MB�s 2nd anniversary
VardaValar1: Time flies
Menelvagor Valar: yeah, have to spend some time with my mom to at least let her know I am alive :-P
VardaValar1: Good plan : )
ArPharazonV: '"Time flies," she said... as she threw her alarm-clock out of the window.'
Menelvagor Valar: and aye, time flies indeed
VardaValar1: Does anyone else have any more they want to say before we fly to different places?
VardaValar1: Maybe to WoW, Eonwe?
Eonwe Valar: The road goes ever on and on, down from the door where it began.
ArPharazonV: Now far ahead the road has gone...
ArPharazonV: and I must follow if I can.
VardaValar1: That sure speaks for the Guild too : )
ArPharazonV: Pursuing it with weary feet, until it joins some larger way.
Eonwe Valar: The greatest adventure, is what lies ahead.
ArPharazonV: Where many paths and errands meet....
