VardaValar1: He has 6 new ones.
VardaValar1: They are listed at the bottom of his Cave page so you can see the latest updates.

FinduilasV: no trying to find you :-)
VardaValar1: hah! That could take a long while. 7 pages of thumbnails. : )

VardaValar1: That's the ticket. Distract them!
VardaValar1: Did anyone play anything besides WoW and allowed to talk about it? : )
FinduilasV: /me breaks out onto loud laughter

Arwen V1: =o
Arwen V1: Forgot this was up =P Hi folks :-)
VardaValar1: Hello Arwen : )
ArPharazonV: Aiya Arwen
VardaValar1: Think you might be up for a Zul Gurub run in about an hour and a half, Arwen?
Arwen V1: I've never done a raid before =o It might be interesting.
VardaValar1: Eonwe, think you might be available?
Eonwe Valar: Afriad not.
Eonwe Valar: *Afraid
VardaValar1: Okies. Those programming projects are eating you alive. : )
ArPharazonV: hmm... my mouse is worn out
ArPharazonV: left mouse button hardly working anymore
ArPharazonV: opened the thing and tried to clean it, but didn't help...
VardaValar1: Keyboards are cheap, Phar : )

FinduilasV: great :-)
VardaValar1: sorry, side-windowing too many : )
VardaValar1: WoW Europe have a report? Finduilas?
ArPharazonV: well, I've had a busy week, and not that much time to do anything outside our normal raids
ArPharazonV: I talked to Finduilas in whispers for a bit
FinduilasV: Not really, since I only came back yesterday, I just levelled my druid and my Pali , and showed my face on Lightbringer
VardaValar1: Which server were you two on together?
FinduilasV: Argent Dawn
VardaValar1: Seen the ent, Fladrif, this week?
VardaValar1: Valandil?
ArPharazonV: seen them, didn't talk to them much though... which is too bad
FinduilasV: He has shown online in the chosen ones, but havent seen him yet
FinduilasV: Flad that is
VardaValar1: okies, sounds as if homework and raids are keeping the Euro folk pretty busy, and work. : )
ArPharazonV: that, and I'm starting to dance again... had our first lesson again this week
ArPharazonV: our raidgroup went through some troubles, moral was a bit low since we've been trying to kill Patchwerk for weeks...
VardaValar1: Tough getting back into the dancing?
ArPharazonV: and our Main Tank left for a while, and it's still not sure if he'll be back for real
VardaValar1: Becoming a long-term goal, is he?
VardaValar1: ouch!
ArPharazonV: as for the dancing... yeah, it's a bit hard since I haven't done some dances for a while, and hard to remember the steps :-)
ArPharazonV: but we should be fine in a few weeks
VardaValar1: Is WoW Euro's report done?
FinduilasV: aye done
ArPharazonV: we have some members in our raidgroup in the WoW BC beta
ArPharazonV: it's looking good so far :-)
ArPharazonV: BC is Burning Crusade, the expansion
VardaValar1: Good to hear!
VardaValar1: Heard it was moved back to January?
ArPharazonV: yes
ArPharazonV: but they'll be releasing a content patch before that to keep us busy ;-)
ArPharazonV: including talents and honor system
ArPharazonV: I've already set up my talent spec for when the patch comes, can't wait to try some stuff out
ArPharazonV: but yeah, that's it for this week
VardaValar1: Thanks folks : )
VardaValar1: WoW Lothar had our usual get-together for Friday
VardaValar1: Eonwe was past his neck in programming homework and couldn't come
VardaValar1: so we did a different type of run this time.
VardaValar1: As we started gathering, Merryv and Fainan (Varda) played in Searing Gorge picking up the Key to the Searing Gorge for Fainan and dispensing "Dwarven Justice" for the dwarf hiding in the outhouse.
VardaValar1: Then we gathered together to help Evenstarr with the Maraudon instance quests, filling in a few not credited for others, and introducing Elwingv to Maraudon.
VardaValar1: Elwingv, Evenstarr, Fainan, Merryv, and Sauronv started in Orange Maraudon.
VardaValar1: We filled the vial in the orange lake, without staining our armor or hair.
VardaValar1: We did the plants, Twisted Evil, collected both halves of the Scepter of Celebras,
VardaValar1: killed Corrupted Celebras, and went to the ghost of Celebras who put the staff together for us.
VardaValar1: While at it, we did most of the Khan quest, but accidentally killed a Khan while two members were dying and releasing.
VardaValar1: We intend to go back and see to the Khans again another time.
VardaValar1: Gimli dropped in about 1am, a bit late for the run, and chatted with us a bit.
VardaValar1: Valar members are usually good about being able to chat and fight at the same time. Yay us!
VardaValar1: That's it for the Lothar report.
VardaValar1: Uldaman server has been a bit neglected by me.
VardaValar1: Arwen, you've been on Uldaman lately?
Eonwe Valar: Pardon, mention of Uldaman reminded me that Merry says hi :}
Arwen V1: no, I've been playing with friends on Alleria recently, when not on Lothar
VardaValar1: okies, Arwen. Thanks
Arwen V1: np =)
VardaValar1: Merry is on Uldaman quite a bit, needs us to show up : )
VardaValar1: once in a while anyway : )
VardaValar1: Ancalagon also plays there a lot
VardaValar1: He likes it better than Alliance
Haleth V has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Haleth, hi!
Haleth V: Aiya Varda! =)
Haleth V: Sorry for being late.
VardaValar1: No worries. You beat all the people who didn't come at all. ;-)
Haleth V: ;P
ArPharazonV: Aiya Haleth!
VardaValar1: Haleth, did you have any news for Membership, Web, or Gaming that you would like to catch us up on?
Haleth V: Aiya Phar
Gamatzgamatz has left the room.
Haleth V: Nope, not yet, I'm afraid
Haleth V: one moment, dogs are misbehaving again.
VardaValar1: okie dokie
Haleth V: Back.
Haleth V: Is the Tolkien chat still going on? Or are we at the after-meeting?
VardaValar1: We are just coming to the Tolkien chat
Eonwe Valar: Still in the meeting part :}
Haleth V: =)
VardaValar1: Finishing gaming
Haleth V: Well, good to know I made that part then. =)
VardaValar1: Did you game any this last week?
VardaValar1: Nice timing : )
Haleth V: A little bit on Warcraft III
Haleth V: Mostly on US West though - a friend of mine just got the game, so...
VardaValar1: Go ahead, Haleth
VardaValar1: The guild defaults gaming to East by the way
VardaValar1: and uses Valar as the friend channel.
FinduilasV: Which i managed to change as my gateway
Haleth V: I'll try and find some time on US East this week =)
FinduilasV: the log in seems to be a bit slower though
VardaValar1: Maybe your friend would like to try some time on East also? : )
VardaValar1: Eonwe has a bit of Gaming news. Go ahead.
Eonwe Valar: Thanks.
Eonwe Valar: Just thought everyone might be interested to know Blizzard's created their own Warcraft Encyclopedia, and it's probably about time :}
VardaValar1: Cool : )
Eonwe Valar: Right now stuff about Elves, the Emerald Dream, mortals, immortals, etc are in there.
ArPharazonV: they plan to update it several times a year
ArPharazonV: so that should be some massive updates :-)
Haleth V: =)
FinduilasV: sounds great :-)
VardaValar1: Much easier to update a little at a time.
Glorfindel VG has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Aiya Glorfindel!
Glorfindel VG: Hello!
Haleth V: Aiya =)
VardaValar1: One more reminder since we've had several enter.
Eonwe Valar: Hopefully they'll read their own lore now before writing up more :}
VardaValar1: Watch your email for Lord of the Rings Online beta invitations.
VardaValar1: Aye, Eonwe! Might help Blizzard more than us to have that Encyclopedia!
VardaValar1: Ok, on to

VardaValar1: Tolkien!
Haleth V: =)
VardaValar1: Finduilas has been researching quite a bit lately and I'd like to bug her to tell some of her impressions. : ) She's learning about her character and the way the book versions operate.
VardaValar1: Go ahead, Finduilas. : )
FinduilasV: Well, as you know, dear friends
FinduilasV: Finduilas was the daughter of Orodreth of Nargothrond
FinduilasV: a niece of Finarfin
FinduilasV: at least in the Silmarillion
FinduilasV: She was tragically torn between her lfeelings for both Gwindor, and Turin
FinduilasV: who lived in NaRGOTHrond under a different name at the time
FinduilasV: Gwindor was her lover of old, from before the Dagor Bragollach but he was caught
FinduilasV: and held prisoner for a long time
FinduilasV: When he managed to escape finally, he helped Turin to find the way to Nargothrond
FinduilasV: and she recognized her old lover
Haleth V has left the room.
FinduilasV: spoke for him , when mistrust was coming up
Haleth V has entered the room.
FinduilasV: but her heart went to Turin ..
Haleth V: Sorry about that, internet periodically breaks down =/
FinduilasV: no worries, internet does that at times haleth L)
FinduilasV: She knew it was hopeless, she knew it was not right
FinduilasV: but on the other hand she knew that *the only way to Turin leads via pity*
FinduilasV: and she had preknowledge there was some greater fate involved, som mishap she wanted to avoid
FinduilasV: to come to pass
FinduilasV: but alas ..
FinduilasV: to no avail
FinduilasV: That is the version, that I read in the lost tale
FinduilasV: As you know the Dragon , Glaurung attacked Nargothrond and both men went with Orodreth to fight him
FinduilasV: Turin was held in the dragon spell for long long time , bewitched and b elied
FinduilasV: much too late he returned to Nargothrond via Doriath and Brethil ..
FinduilasV: He heard from other escapees the brutal and sad truth, that Finduilas was taken prisoner 0 Turin had seen and heard her
FinduilasV: but could not rescue her
FinduilasV: Some refugees, who tired to free the prisoners while Turin himself went to look for his sister and Mother
VardaValar1: There was a minor prophecy that Turin must rescue Finduilas or else bad things.
FinduilasV: right
FinduilasV: /me nods
FinduilasV: she was to be taken to Angband with the other woman and girls
FinduilasV: but the orcs who took them were assaulted and killed, and they killed all their prisoners before
FinduilasV: the men buried her beside the Teilin stairs
FinduilasV: Haudh en Elleth - the tomb of the Even maid it was called
FinduilasV: Strangely enogh Turin came there always after when he wanted to be alone or wanted some thought over a matter
FinduilasV: and Turin protected her tomb fiercely
FinduilasV: so orcs never dared to come near
FinduilasV: That is how far the narration goes and what i do remember about her
VardaValar1: Very well told!
FinduilasV: the middle bit about gwindor and turin in details only appears in a fragment in the lost tales
FinduilasV: /me smiles
VardaValar1: So if you have a significant other, he might come in as Gwindor or Turin. : )
VardaValar1: Sorry. : )
FinduilasV: *grin*
FinduilasV: that let him know, hehe, unfortunately he shows no interest in tolkien in details
VardaValar1: Enough for entry maybe?
FinduilasV: I can ask him
VardaValar1: Does anyone have anything they would like to add?
FinduilasV: but doubt it
VardaValar1: Although that was a pretty complete telling.
VardaValar1: Folks, I'm going to call it

VardaValar1: After-meeting!
VardaValar1: Free chat or choose to get together for gaming

Eonwe Valar: If you have the latest, aye, there'd be no reason for it.
Menelvagor Valar: probably some internal error then.
Menelvagor Valar: solved now, so no use dwelling on it :)
Menelvagor Valar: I have a tidbit of WoW news though :)
AuSteinM: Sorry, I wasn't here...AIM trouble?
Menelvagor Valar: non-Valar, I have to admit, but fun to know regardless.
Menelvagor Valar: couldnt get into this room.
AuSteinM: ah, okay
Menelvagor Valar: exiting and restarting AIM solved it.
Menelvagor Valar: so anyone interested in WoW news or should I just keep it to myself? :D
Eonwe Valar: Waiting for you to share :}
Menelvagor Valar: Okidee :)
Menelvagor Valar: Yesterday me and some of my guild got together for a Blizz beta screenshot contest.
Menelvagor Valar: or rather, just a screenie contest for beta keys :-P
Menelvagor Valar: Anyways, the contest's aim was to have a scene from Pirates of the Carribean re-enacted.
Menelvagor Valar: The scene to be screenied was the one where 2 ships were close together at sea and the "undead" pirates fighting Jack Sparrow and his pirates.
Menelvagor Valar: So my guildies all ate Devias Fish to get the Pirate Costume, a hunter brought his pet gorilla.
Menelvagor Valar: and I got to play the part of ... Catherine I think it was (female mage)
Menelvagor Valar: The screenie was taken on the 2 boats in the Pirate's Compound in Tanaris, and we aggrod most of the 2 boats to get enough pirates :)
Star of Phaet: well, I'm off, folks. past my bed-time
Star of Phaet: Namarie :-)
Menelvagor Valar: Unfortunately, I couldnt stay the whole time, as I had other plans, but I did get in 1 screenie :)
ArPharazonV: Namarie
Menelvagor Valar: Namarie!
Menelvagor Valar: basically, thats the news.
Star of Phaet has left the room.
Eonwe Valar: Cool :}
Eonwe Valar: Sounds like it was fun :}
Menelvagor Valar:
Menelvagor Valar: there is the screenie :)
Menelvagor Valar: I am actually in it, just below the text bubble in the white wedding dress swinging my blacksmithing hammer :D
ArPharazonV: well, I'm going to bed, I guess
ArPharazonV: will be saving and sending
Eonwe Valar: Sleep well :}
