VardaValar1: So after Indis, Menelvagor goes alphabetically.
Menelvagor Valar: Sorry, I was slightly afk at that particular roll call :-)
VardaValar1: As were most. : )
AriehnV: one .. two in all i think
Joldahks: i think gloin said something about the third and final visit coming soon, but whether it did or not i dont know
ArPharazonV: hmm, I'll be saving and sending transcript
VardaValar1: We will stop after my question. Most need to leave.
Menelvagor Valar: I'd have to say that Arien will get it.
VardaValar1: (I am being sneaky by whispering)
Menelvagor Valar: Although Ancalagon has a good point, it's only an assumption the third came, not fact.
Menelvagor Valar: therefore, grats Arien.
VardaValar1: Who was the first child of Samwise Gamgee?
karakedi25: golden hair, un-hobbitly beautiful
ArPharazonV (6:03:47 PM): saved [note: times in CST, add one hour for EST]
VardaValar1 (6:04:10 PM): Not the right name, well-described.
Joldahks (6:04:22 PM): elanor
karakedi25 (6:04:27 PM): ah right
Menelvagor Valar (6:04:31 PM): that's the correct one.
VardaValar1 (6:04:57 PM): Elanor is right.
Menelvagor Valar (6:05:02 PM): Named after the flowers around (can't remember the name) in Lothlorien.
VardaValar1 (6:05:11 PM): Thanks for a fun game and lots of good memories!
karakedi25 (6:05:17 PM): Cerin Amroth
AriehnV (6:05:23 PM): thats it aye
AriehnV (6:05:52 PM): *This is the heart of elven doom* Aragorn said
VardaValar1 (6:06:03 PM): Almost, Elvendom
AriehnV (6:06:07 PM): lol
AriehnV (6:06:17 PM): aye , grin
VardaValar1 (6:06:22 PM): After-meeting:
VardaValar1 (6:06:38 PM): Menel is wanting to ask another for fun. Go ahead, Menel!
Menelvagor Valar (6:06:56 PM): It's quite simple for people with good memories for names, otherwise it's rather hard.
ArPharazonV (6:07:05 PM): then you'll need to make your own transcript, Varda, because I won't have caught it
Menelvagor Valar (6:07:28 PM): What does Treebeard name Lothlorien? (and I'd like to hear his full description for bonus points).
email@example.com (6:07:35 PM) has entered the room.
karakedi25 (6:07:44 PM): Laurelindorinan is at least part of it
VardaValar1 (6:07:53 PM): What Indis said. : )
karakedi25 (6:07:59 PM): there was a long string of names after that
firstname.lastname@example.org (6:08:21 PM): (hmm apparently something went wrong at 12:22)
Menelvagor Valar (6:08:26 PM): possibly, but I don't remember that particular bit.
email@example.com (6:08:28 PM): Suilad
karakedi25 (6:08:32 PM): suilad
VardaValar1 (6:08:32 PM): Hiya
Menelvagor Valar (6:08:38 PM): I know Laurelindorinan is correct.
VardaValar1 (6:08:40 PM): We are just finishing up.
AriehnV (6:08:40 PM): the vale of the singing gold it used to be called .. now it is the dream flower
pallandovalar (6:09:05 PM) has left the room.
Menelvagor Valar (6:09:08 PM): And Treebeard said that it was just a short name in Entish.
VardaValar1 (6:09:26 PM): Takes all day to start a meeting. Sort of Valaritish.
Menelvagor Valar (6:09:38 PM): take all week rather *grin*
Menelvagor Valar (6:10:04 PM): we've done 1 meeting over the course of an entire week.
VardaValar1 (6:10:38 PM): Chat marathon. : )
fladrifv (6:10:49 PM): we did that :=
ArPharazonV (6:11:23 PM): allright, the transcript is sent
VardaValar1 (6:11:38 PM): Thank you, Phar!
ArPharazonV (6:11:54 PM):
didn't catch the last question or the previous answer, but you'll take
care of that of course
ArPharazonV (6:12:02 PM): now I really should be going
VardaValar1 (6:12:21 PM): I should have it
VardaValar1 (6:12:24 PM): Sleep well!
Menelvagor Valar (6:12:31 PM): Namarie Pharzie.
Menelvagor Valar (6:13:18 PM): and with that, a fun quotation from Pharzie himself:
Menelvagor Valar (6:13:21 PM): Ar-Pharazon's tombstone:
"Arphy you can do anything,"
is what Sauron said.
I attacked the gods,
and now I'm pretty dead.
VardaValar1 (6:13:26 PM): lol
VardaValar1 (6:13:48 PM):
That is a humor bit we are supposed to be adding to. What our
characters could have on their tombstones.
ArPharazonV (6:13:55 PM): yes yes, the last line still bugs me, but it'll do
firstname.lastname@example.org (6:13:56 PM): Losta vaer
ArPharazonV (6:14:22 PM): namarie all
VardaValar1 (6:14:24 PM): The last line makes it funny!
Menelvagor Valar (6:14:32 PM): Aye, I agree.
ArPharazonV (6:14:35 PM): the "pretty" doesn't ring well
email@example.com (6:14:39 PM): Happy anniversary, all ...
Menelvagor Valar (6:14:49 PM): well, you're not exactly dead are you?
Menelvagor Valar (6:14:52 PM): just more or less.
ArPharazonV (6:14:56 PM): true
ArPharazonV (6:14:59 PM): and still pretty
Menelvagor Valar (6:15:02 PM): which is pretty much the same as "pretty"
VardaValar1 (6:15:07 PM): Thank you, Luthien!
ArPharazonV (6:15:15 PM): goodnight
Menelvagor Valar (6:15:16 PM): Thanks Luthien!
ArPharazonV (6:15:20 PM): sleep awaits... for 4 hours
ArPharazonV (6:15:27 PM): I'll live
VardaValar1 (6:15:29 PM): I should grab that line for the News page. : )
VardaValar1 (6:15:34 PM): Sleep fast!
Menelvagor Valar (6:15:35 PM): so you're going to sleep in 4 hours time?
fladrifv (6:15:36 PM): sleep well Aphar
Menelvagor Valar (6:15:39 PM): it has to wait until then?
ArPharazonV (6:15:48 PM): well after 4 hours it goes away again
ArPharazonV (6:15:56 PM): but yeah
ArPharazonV (6:15:59 PM): namarie
VardaValar1 (6:16:00 PM): Run Phar run!
ArPharazonV (6:16:01 PM) has left the room.
Menelvagor Valar (6:16:02 PM): sounds like something I'd like to skip
Menelvagor Valar (6:16:13 PM): I'd prefer to catch the sleep, not keep it waiting *grin*
VardaValar1 (6:16:19 PM): hehe
VardaValar1 (6:16:28 PM): Menel, are you still able to work on the Humor page?
VardaValar1 (6:16:44 PM): We had that server switch
Menelvagor Valar (6:16:44 PM): I haven't in a long, long time.
VardaValar1 (6:16:58 PM): Then maybe I should boot you from the page. hehe
Menelvagor Valar (6:17:10 PM): And I haven't had, or taken, the time to get acquainted with the new server stuff.
TulkasValar61 (6:17:20 PM): Sorry was AFK for our rather orcish supper I made
VardaValar1 (6:17:20 PM): Aww, you can send in stuff for humor and I'll do it.
VardaValar1 (6:17:33 PM): Orcish supper? Meat on the menu?
Menelvagor Valar (6:17:47 PM): Ah yes, of course.
VardaValar1 (6:17:59 PM): Storming here.
Menelvagor Valar (6:18:01 PM): Well, that is one of my little projects for november 29th
Menelvagor Valar (6:18:05 PM): added to the list.
TulkasValar61 (6:18:12 PM): Roast leg of lamb...feels sort of bad...but tastes so good
VardaValar1 (6:18:12 PM): Sending in a funny?
VardaValar1 (6:18:33 PM): Sheep, a Biblical meal. : )
Menelvagor Valar (6:18:35 PM): rather add more than a few.
VardaValar1 (6:18:53 PM): Good! Needs some injections of new stuff.
VardaValar1 (6:19:10 PM): Anyone can send in humor bits, email to me, I'll stickt them in there for Menelvagor.
Menelvagor Valar (6:19:16 PM): Aye, but humor of that level is kinda inspirational, so no promises!
VardaValar1 (6:19:22 PM): (I can reach your page, Menel. Mwuahahaha)
Menelvagor Valar (6:19:50 PM): You can reach every page of the site *grin*
TulkasValar61 (6:20:00 PM): An orc, an elf, and a dwarf walk into a bar.........
VardaValar1 (6:20:03 PM): True. It's good to be a Valie.
VardaValar1 (6:20:07 PM): lol
VardaValar1 (6:20:14 PM): Go Tulkas!
Menelvagor Valar (6:20:15 PM): Back on the old server I had access to your stuff as well.
Menelvagor Valar (6:20:22 PM): I wisely left them alone of course.
VardaValar1 (6:20:33 PM): Aye, we trusted each other. And if one of us needed help, the other gave it.
VardaValar1 (6:20:52 PM): This whole guild is based on trustworthy people. : )
VardaValar1 (6:20:58 PM): Website is no exception.
VardaValar1 (6:21:19 PM): Eonwe can get to anything I have, and really helped the art site recently!
VardaValar1 (6:21:50 PM):
I was having a hard time handling the massive link change from the
server switch, he wrote a program and fixed the whole cavern!
Menelvagor Valar (6:22:09 PM): and immediately were flushed out by Barliman's speech waterfall.
VardaValar1 (6:22:17 PM): heheheh
Menelvagor Valar (6:22:25 PM): Thanks Tulkas!
VardaValar1 (6:22:28 PM): Barliman's Bar
Menelvagor Valar (6:22:39 PM): That single line will get a rush of new jokes up!
VardaValar1 (6:23:10 PM): That's a thought. Do a "Complete this..."
Menelvagor Valar (6:23:35 PM): several would be good too
VardaValar1 (6:23:52 PM): This
is the lowest number of Tolkien Site additions for an anniversary and
an all time high for the number of active gaming responders.
VardaValar1 (6:24:14 PM):
Feel free to send in late material for the anniversary, but label it
that it's for the anniversary.
VardaValar1 (6:24:47 PM): Sauron says hi, just came home. : )
VardaValar1 (6:25:15 PM): We made contact with Theoden-(V) during the chat, over in WoW Argent Dawn server.
VardaValar1 (6:25:26 PM): He said hi to everyone here. That is very cool.
Menelvagor Valar (6:25:29 PM): Hey Sauron.
Menelvagor Valar (6:25:40 PM): I've got something especially for Sauron!
VardaValar1 (6:25:43 PM): Thank you Arien for contatcting. : )
Menelvagor Valar (6:25:48 PM): Complete this:
VardaValar1 (6:25:53 PM): uh oh : )
Menelvagor Valar (6:26:00 PM): If I was [insert name here], I would....
Menelvagor Valar (6:26:07 PM): So, for Sauron that would be...
VardaValar1 (6:26:22 PM): Might want to add a situation to that.
Menelvagor Valar (6:26:28 PM): If I was Sauron, I would be more Evil than Sauron could ever hope to be. mu. ha.
VardaValar1 (6:26:35 PM): ha.
Menelvagor Valar (6:27:11 PM): I'd sure like to know Sauron's response to that *smile*
VardaValar1 (6:27:20 PM): I'll go tell him.
TulkasValar61 (6:27:46 PM):
If I were tulkas, I would be heading to night school to catch up on
this LOTRol thingamajig.
VardaValar1 (6:29:16 PM): Sauron-Valar laughed at yours and said his completion would be: "I would invent lawyers."
TulkasValar61 (6:29:47 PM): lawyers with real estate broker minions?
VardaValar1 (6:29:49 PM): Our school is reading the books and chatting and doing stuff for the Tolkien Site.
VardaValar1 (6:30:06 PM): Sauron laughed and said they could have those minions.
VardaValar1 (6:31:18 PM): I just showed Sauron the Shadowfax, the ship, and he said it looked pretty darn awesome.
TulkasValar61 (6:32:24 PM): The
minions would bedazzle you with small print....and then the lawyers
would slam you with the Law Suit spell..which takes all your stuff
TulkasValar61 (6:33:45 PM): shouldna mentioned lawyers...It gets me worked up
TulkasValar61 (6:33:53 PM): but in a good way
Menelvagor Valar (6:34:17 PM): If
I were Melkor, I would give up on being trounced on Arda and dominate
the rest of the bazillion gajillion stars in the universe.
VardaValar1 (6:34:28 PM): That's thinking.
TulkasValar61 (6:35:03 PM): but would he be Melkor without the challenge?
VardaValar1 (6:35:05 PM): That's what Sauron thought of when he thought of evil, so he agrees with you, Tulkas.
VardaValar1 (6:37:10 PM): About this chat room,
VardaValar1 (6:37:24 PM): some have again suggested that we keep it up all the time.
Menelvagor Valar (6:37:48 PM): well, I found this week to be very refreshing.
VardaValar1 (6:37:54 PM): That
may be very difficult, it is for me, but what do you guys think of
having it up when we have people just sitting their AIM characters
Menelvagor Valar (6:38:00 PM): Got to meet up more with everyone.
karakedi25 (6:38:14 PM): I've enjooyed having it available
VardaValar1 (6:38:16 PM): Get yourself to LotRO!
Menelvagor Valar (6:38:22 PM): especially with the non-european guildies, who I see precious little.
VardaValar1 (6:38:23 PM): It is really nice. : )
karakedi25 (6:38:24 PM): that too
Menelvagor Valar (6:38:31 PM): I know, I know.
VardaValar1 (6:38:53 PM): It's like having bnet back super-sized.
Menelvagor Valar (6:38:56 PM): but still.
TulkasValar61 (6:38:59 PM):
The time indicator helps to see if people are recent or just sitting
afk..and you can leave stuff to scroll back to
VardaValar1 (6:39:18 PM): So, anyone who wants to, make the room and keep it going whenever you take a notion.
VardaValar1 (6:39:28 PM): Between us, it may be available quite a bit.
VardaValar1 (6:39:40 PM): A giant message machine!
TulkasValar61 (6:39:42 PM): unless your puter tends to melt down and turn off without notice
Menelvagor Valar (6:39:45 PM): Aye.
VardaValar1 (6:39:46 PM): Aye
VardaValar1 (6:39:56 PM): In your case, just leave it up now and then. : )
VardaValar1 (6:40:15 PM): Email is still best for leaving me messages, gang. : )
Menelvagor Valar (6:40:18 PM): You can always hop in, see if anyone responds and take it from there
VardaValar1 (6:40:23 PM): True
VardaValar1 (6:40:46 PM):
Doesn't have to be constantly open, but with people from so many time
zones, it could be up a lot!
Menelvagor Valar (6:40:54 PM): Aye!
VardaValar1 (6:41:01 PM): Anyone can make it
VardaValar1 (6:41:09 PM): Fladrif, questioni on Pidgin
Menelvagor Valar (6:41:11 PM): and unless I have a comp crash, I can leave it up 24/7.
karakedi25 (6:41:33 PM): Yes, I have a question about pidgin too
VardaValar1 (6:41:33 PM): Can you make a transcript of these meetings in Pidgin as we do in AIM?
Menelvagor Valar (6:41:34 PM): and usually if my comp crashes, I'll have it up within a few minutes again.
VardaValar1 (6:41:45 PM): I am seriously considering migrating there.
VardaValar1 (6:41:58 PM): We have major power outages sometimes.
Menelvagor Valar (6:42:07 PM): I'm not, I got too used to AIM to switch now.
VardaValar1 (6:42:11 PM): Last year we were down for 2 weeks.
VardaValar1 (6:42:27 PM): Pidgin has a section that is supposed to be just like AIM>
VardaValar1 (6:42:36 PM): If so, I would probably be fine.
VardaValar1 (6:42:58 PM): We also have the Forum for contact.
Valar (6:43:07 PM): I don't like multiple IMs incorporated in
a single program, have had bad experience with it before.
VardaValar1 (6:43:21 PM):
We need to get those LotR and Sil trivia threads going again, maybe ask
some easies so people get back in the habit.
VardaValar1 (6:43:50 PM): Fladrif seems to like it, and it might be good for a contact person to use at least.
VardaValar1 (6:44:16 PM): I'm nervous about the switch, concerned that it will be a mess.
VardaValar1 (6:44:46 PM): AIM has not been very good about letting people into their own chat program.
karakedi25 (6:45:08 PM): I think I have one posted in trivia already. Not too hard, I believe.
TulkasValar61 (6:45:18 PM):
Well people, happy anniversary, I am going to go to LotROL to try to
snag level 31 before bed..Good night all
karakedi25 (6:45:32 PM): Good luck Tulkas
VardaValar1 (6:45:39 PM): Good idea!
karakedi25 (6:45:41 PM): I do have a question about Pidgin...
VardaValar1 (6:45:44 PM): I may join ou. : )
VardaValar1 (6:45:53 PM): Fladrif is not answering, our expert.
VardaValar1 (6:46:13 PM): Where are you gaming, Tulkas?
karakedi25 (6:46:24 PM):
How can one join this chat room from Pidgin? I currently have AIM
up as well, and I was hoping to avoid that.
VardaValar1 (6:46:45 PM): You use Pidgin in place of AIM.
fladrifv (6:47:08 PM): pidgin can join chat rooms
karakedi25 (6:47:27 PM): Yes, but I haven't found out how to invite myself into a chatroom from pidgin
fladrifv (6:47:35 PM): ok buddies, join chat
fladrifv (6:47:49 PM): and then type there valarguildmeetingplace
fladrifv (6:47:57 PM): oh and select AIM as protocol
VardaValar1 (6:48:07 PM): Does it ignore spaces in the chat room name?
karakedi25 (6:48:29 PM): OK I see it.
fladrifv (6:48:34 PM): you need to write it as one word
karakedi25 (6:48:39 PM): ah
IWF519 (6:48:41 PM) has left the room.
karakedi25 (6:49:05 PM): dropping out to try it
karakedi25 (6:49:09 PM) has left the room.
Menelvagor Valar (6:49:45 PM): AIM ignores the spaces when we create the chat room from AIM itself it seems.
karakedi25 (6:49:56 PM) has entered the room.
VardaValar1 (6:50:04 PM): On the Silmarillion chat thread, it's Ancalagon's turn.
VardaValar1 (6:50:09 PM): Aiya Indis!
karakedi25 (6:50:13 PM): I had to use AIM again.
karakedi25 (6:50:24 PM): Pidgin sent me to a room of my own.
karakedi25 (6:50:27 PM): Not this one.
TulkasValar61 (6:50:42 PM): afk I am around estedlin
VardaValar1 (6:51:10 PM): ok
karakedi25 (6:51:19 PM): any suggestions?
karakedi25 (6:52:17 PM) has left the room.
karakedi25 (6:52:17 PM) has entered the room.
karakedi25 (6:52:42 PM): Aiiya!
VardaValar1 (6:53:00 PM): Hail
karakedi25 (6:53:21 PM): OK, now I'm in from Pidgin
VardaValar1 (6:53:29 PM): What did you do differently?
Menelvagor Valar (6:53:43 PM): I'm going off to bed, I'm knackered.
VardaValar1 (6:53:50 PM): Sleep well!
Menelvagor Valar (6:53:52 PM): Thanks for an unforgettable anniversary!
VardaValar1 (6:54:06 PM): Thanks for being part of it.
karakedi25 (6:54:20 PM): I used the wrong account the first time (I have 2 aol screen names as well)
VardaValar1 (6:54:35 PM): ahhh, a snag others could run into as well.
VardaValar1 (6:54:37 PM): Thanks.
Valar (6:55:11 PM): Namarie! Elen sila lumenn omentielvo. (

VardaValar1 (6:55:27 PM): Might ask Luthien?
AriehnV (6:55:35 PM): Namarie .. Anar kaluva tielyanna
karakedi25 (6:55:37 PM): Namarie, Menel
