Ar-Pharazon-V: Aiya
Eonwe Valar (Eonwe Valar) has entered the room.
Eonwe Valar: Heya :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: Aiya!
Eonwe Valar: How goes it?
Arien V: Aiya Eonwe and Phar :-D
Arien V: goes fine enough , tired though since i was working early this morning
Eonwe Valar: Ah. Well glad you could make it :}
Eonwe Valar: One moment and we'll begin.
Eonwe Valar: OK, here we go!

Eonwe Valar: Elen Sila Lumenn Omentielvo!
Eonwe Valar: Membership:
Eonwe Valar: The Anniversary is this Tuesday. Happy Anniversary!
Ar-Pharazon-V: Hurray, happy anniversary!
Eonwe Valar: 19 years old :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: That means my anniversary is coming up too, at... 13 years?
Eonwe Valar: You joined in 2002 I think?
Eonwe Valar: Membership pages says 2003.
Ar-Pharazon-V: That would place me in high school, so.. yeah. 2003 it is.
Eonwe Valar: So 13 years sounds about right.
Ar-Pharazon-V: First year of university.
Eonwe Valar: Happy Anniversary to you as well then :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: Yay!
Eonwe Valar: Thank both you and Arien for coming to meetings so regularly :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: I'm just glad the chatroom's no longer bugging me ;-)
Eonwe Valar: Varda is out of town this week, but says you can still send in stuff for the Anniversary.
Eonwe Valar: Hehe :}
Eonwe Valar: I hope I didn't miss inviting anyone in. I invited everyone in my list that was one, and besides we three, that's Gilraen, Gwaihir, and Farmer Maggot, all of which seem to be busy.
Eonwe Valar: *that was on
Ar-Pharazon-V: I've got Elladan here, will invite.
scott92027 has been invited.
Eonwe Valar: Thanks :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: Also got Galdor and Meneldil, but they've got blue signs instead of green, not sure what that means...
Eonwe Valar: I think it indicates they can't accept invites, but I forget off the top of my head.
Eonwe Valar: Don't forget the Chat Marathon starts tonight as well :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: And that would be the main reason I'm glad chatrooms aren't bugging me anymore, I can join on my own now ;-)
Eonwe Valar: I'll need to turn off my computer after the meeting to let it get some rest, but I'll try to be back in for a few hours later in the night to cover it for a while.
Eonwe Valar: :}

Eonwe Valar: Web:
Eonwe Valar: Right from the News Page: Tolkien Site / Stories:
       "Pet". Little Legolas brings home a pet. Why? New story by Little Jewel-(T).
Ar-Pharazon-V: "It's not just a squirrel... it's a flying squirrel!" *tosses in the air*
Ar-Pharazon-V: Eh, obscure reference there.
Arien V: 19 years?? that is another "Big one" next year =-O
Eonwe Valar: Also from the News Page, on Anniversary celebrations:
Eonwe Valar: October 4 will be the 19th Anniversary of the Valar Guild. Congratulations to you all for making this possible!
Eonwe Valar: The theme for this year ("more actual guidelines, really"), is what brings contentment or even joy to a particular character or race as shown by a character, which can use original characters as well as Tolkien's. These can be solo, contrasting, or parallel. An example might be a comparison of Eomer and Ugluk ending with their fight, or Smaug contentedly snuggling down in his bed of stolen gold.
Eonwe Valar: For the Tolkien Site, these can be articles, stories, art, poetry, or even language illustrations. The theme is not required, just something to help give ideas in front of a blank screen staring back at you. Please email contributions to Varda and mark that they are intended for the Anniversary. Please have them in before the end of October for this event, although being later will not prevent acceptance.
Eonwe Valar: For gaming, we intend to have solo and group fireworks in towns or randomly in groups, with a cheer for the 19th Anniversay of the Valar Guild. Lines of mounts coming into towns or planets are fun, such as a line of flying mounts in WoW or horses in LotRO. Coordinated feather hats or gold and white coloring or all green for a group could be a bit of added fun. In LotRO, fireworks have been provided in the kin chest for any kinmate's use on the Anniversary.
Eonwe Valar: For the AIM group, (my note: that's us :}) please feel free to indulge in the tradition of keeping the chat room open from the Sunday meeting before the Anniversary to the meeting after.
Eonwe Valar: Feel free to email a report of what you or you and your buddies did for the Anniversary in your game(s) of choice to be added to the Anniversary page, with your gaming name for credit. (I don't always recognize folks just from the email, sorry.) Show off your game! If it shows happiness or contentment of a Tolkien-style character, kudos! *troll snores happily under the bridge*.
Eonwe Valar: Varda should be back in town, possibly late in the day, on Oct 4, possibly shoving other spaceships out of the way to make it. Please jump in anyway and email your report (maybe even screenies) for the Anniversary page.
Arien V: haha love that story
Arien V: i will be in tomorrow as soon as i can make ikt
Arien V: i ll be off tomorrow and Tuesday
Eonwe Valar: Cool :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: I should be able to get online for most of the afternoon and evening tomorrow, tuesday's a bit trickier, wednesday's almost impossible...
Ar-Pharazon-V: Eh, we'll see.
Eonwe Valar: Aye, we can only do our best, and all members are welcome to come in, help keep it up, chat, reminisce, get to know other members, etc. :}

Eonwe Valar: Gaming:

Eonwe Valar: GSMU:
Eonwe Valar: It's been completed. I'm in the process of putting together the final report, but some highlights are as follows:
Eonwe Valar: Before the GSMU : 153 members playing 12 games
Eonwe Valar: After the GSMU: 155 members playing 17 games
Ar-Pharazon-V: Profit!
Eonwe Valar: :}
Eonwe Valar: 16 members responded, 22 more were gleaned from Guild branches, for a total of 38 members with something listed on the Games Site.
Eonwe Valar: Lord of the Rings Online is still by far our most active game at 31 members, WoW a distant second at 10 members spread across regions and servers.
Eonwe Valar: Steam has 4 members there.
Eonwe Valar: Eve Online has 4 members, Starcraft 2 has 5 members playing, everything else 3 or fewer.
Eonwe Valar: At least, those that admit to playing. As always, any member who wishes to update their gaming info is still welcome to send it in, and hopefully find that there are other members that play the same games they do.
Eonwe Valar: Thank you to everyone who responded to the e-mail :}
Eonwe Valar: Now on to gaming news:

Eonwe Valar: World of Warcraft:
Eonwe Valar: See what's going on This Month in WoW. LFR and Mythic difficulties are now available for Emerald Nightmare.
There's two new blogs out: Unleashed Monstrosities: A Look at World Bosses and Becoming a Legion Archaeologist: Can You Dig It?.
Blizzard has announced that they're not going to be referring to as for reasons I'll let them explain in this blog on the subject.
Check out this week's hotfixes.

Eonwe Valar: Diablo 3:
Eonwe Valar: Season 7 is ending soon. A new blog is out: Developer Chronicles: Eras.

Eonwe Valar: Starcraft 2:
Eonwe Valar: A new preview blog is out: Patch 3.7 Preview: Separate MMR Per Race.

Eonwe Valar: Heroes of the Storm:
Eonwe Valar: A new patch came out this week. Check out the patch notes.

Eonwe Valar: Hearthstone:
Eonwe Valar: Some balance updates are coming. Check out the blog for more info.
Eonwe Valar: Any other gaming news?
Ar-Pharazon-V: Kinda!
Ar-Pharazon-V: Met Fladrif in Hearthstone this week, he had a daily quest to play against a friend, so he chose me :-)
Eonwe Valar: Go ahead :}
Eonwe Valar: Cool :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: We poked the brawl a few times and both got 80g reward after completion!
Ar-Pharazon-V: So yay, guild action ;-)
Eonwe Valar: Indeed :}
Eonwe Valar: Anything else, or shall we transition to Tolkien?
Ar-Pharazon-V: Not until aftermeeting! :-)
Eonwe Valar: OK :}
[Note: LotRO kin member listing for the past week in the After-meeting.]

Eonwe Valar: Tolkien:
Eonwe Valar: Are all three of us here?
Ar-Pharazon-V: I am! Even just left WoW for the day.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Level 107 now. Slow, but steady.
Arien V: hneh sort of
Eonwe Valar: Congrats :} I'm surprisingly not 110 yet either. Just haven't had time.
Arien V: uhm got .. three at 110 .. how sad am i :O?
Ar-Pharazon-V: Same. Couple of local holidays, getting used to a work routine, and this online ccg game on kongregate has some timed events that are more time-consuming than I thought...
Eonwe Valar: Ok, I have a fairly easy Tolkien chat topic, which if you two are willing to indulge in, I think fits the fact that it's the Anniversary.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Hmm. I'm sure there are people with 12, Arien :-)
Eonwe Valar: hehe, Congrats Arien :}
Arien V: yeah the demon hunter made it to 110 too ^^
Arien V: the belfi one
Ar-Pharazon-V: To be fair, it had the least far to go!
Arien V: hehe  I know ^^
Eonwe Valar: OK, Tolkien chat topic, should you choose to accept it:
Arien V: which topic is that?

Eonwe Valar: In a few sentences, why did you choose your guild name? Can include previous names as well if you want, but current name at least.
Eonwe Valar: What did you like about the character, that kind of thing.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Interesting question...
Ar-Pharazon-V: It's been 13 years ;-)
Eonwe Valar: Aye :}
Eonwe Valar: Did we want to take turns or just put it out there?

Ar-Pharazon-V: If I recall, I decided to go for one of the "bad guys" because I figured most of the good guys were taken (was considering Fingolfin at first) and I figured they were easier to live up to :-)
Ar-Pharazon-V: The Akallabeth always fascinated me, and Pharazon was in many ways the pinnacle of human history in Tolkien's lore, even if it came with corruption.
Ar-Pharazon-V: A tragic story too, redeemable in a way... not so much evil but more of a product of his time and his family, and he did do some great things.
Ar-Pharazon-V: So I guess I felt the character needed some sympathy?
Eonwe Valar: :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: Actually, if I recall, I was rather more in to playing bad guys back then.
Ar-Pharazon-V: They always just felt more powerful, mysterious, interesting. Fun. I guess that's part of why I had what happened to Calaron in our RP, happen.
Ar-Pharazon-V: That part's faded a bit over the years, but I think I've done a decent job of carrying the name with me as I went nearer the light side :-)
Eonwe Valar: :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: There's ambiguity to Pharazon's fate, anyway, he might as well choose the right side at the end of the world...
Eonwe Valar: It is interesting, if he will have the opportunity for a choice, and if he will choose wisely.
Ar-Pharazon-V: I believe that in the end, he's always been loyal to (most of) his people, and what he thought was best for them, even if he fell to Sauron's persuasion in the end.
Ar-Pharazon-V: So yeah, I think that's my story :-)
Eonwe Valar: Thanks Phar :}

Arien V: Arien .. well  basically it was a Maia name i needed at the time and i was looking through the name list .. so really boring .. i liked the name , but then as character . as pilot of the Sun carrying vessel she is fascinating
Arien V: as helmsgirl so to say .. powerful but she is being chased as well (by the moon and apparently was fancied by Sauron at a point very early )
Arien V: I wonder whether that is why she accepted that role .. i mean she cared for Illuin so it was a logical choice to keep on caring for that what remained of it
Arien V: but it kept her moving, occupied and safe from him ^^
Eonwe Valar: Iluin was one of the lamps. Did you mean Laurelin, the Golden Tree?
Arien V: aye i meant that
Arien V: thanks Eonwe ^^
Arien V: i dont do names really .. *sigh*
Eonwe Valar: MP :}
Eonwe Valar: No worries. :}
Eonwe Valar: Is it my turn? :}
Eonwe Valar: (Don't want to interrupt :})
Arien V: uhm .. so she is fascinating to think of a fire spirit with such a momentuos task but an entirely almost human background story
Arien V: with various would be lovers after her ^^
Arien V: Silpion and Sauron :-)
Arien V: anyway that is my story , not as fascinting and outformed as Pharis , but something anyway :-)
Arien V: and something different after Finduilas as well ,... starting off as Finduilas T
Eonwe Valar: Thanks Arien :} I don't remember the Sauron connection. Now I have to take some time to look into that :}
Arien V: a fairly tragic character in the end

Ar-Pharazon-V: To be fair, my story kinda angled away into a defense of the character in question, rather than my motivations for choosing him, but I think I still got a bit of the point across ;-)
Eonwe Valar: Did you want to talk about your previous name as well, Arien, or just stick with your current?
Eonwe Valar: Sounded like you were about to, so if you want to, you can, but don't have to :}
Arien V: shortly

Arien V: Finduilas .. daughter of Orodreth
Arien V: former lover of Saeron , if i remember right .. then Turin fell in love with her but her father warned him of an entanglement with him  .She liked him nontheless, but as brother friend i think.. Turin ran away from Nargothrond it was I think and got entangled in a lot of adventures. Finduilas got captured by the orcs and killed by them .. we know Turin chased after her and  well that is another story ^^
Arien V: Personality wise i like her .. loving caring, brave as well .sad she had to die like that.
Arien V: That is it :-)
Arien V: oooh another name meddle up here#
Arien V: Gwindor she was betrothed to but he got captured
Ar-Pharazon-V: That didn't go well for him!
Eonwe Valar: Indeed.
Eonwe Valar: Lost a brother and a lover.

Eonwe Valar: OK, I'll keep mine brief.
Eonwe Valar: Way back,.. 17 years ago almost,... I chose Aragorn because he was a good, noble man (and not just a nobleman, heh), line of kings, just, and the name was available :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: Kinsman!
Eonwe Valar: :}

Eonwe Valar: When I became a Maia, there weren't any male Maia names available, so we allowed constellations as well. We were more stringent on changing the name to a Maia name back then, and some deliberation I determined Valacirca was the best option. I liked the lore behind it, being a symbol of Morgoth's ultimate fall and of hope to the Free Peoples.

Eonwe Valar: When I became a Vala, all the major Vala names (the ones from the Sil) were taken, so I had a handful of options from a selection of those who were Valar in the Histories, but either did not make it to the Silmarillion, or were changed to be Maiar.
Ar-Pharazon-V: I wonder what the three Time-guys from the Book of Lost Tales would fall under..
Eonwe Valar: I chose Eonwë, who was Fionwë, son of Manwë and Varda in the early tales. I liked the connection in the old tales, as well as the his description as the best with weaponry.
Eonwe Valar: He was a fighter, and a guy committed to Good, faithfully serving Manwë as herald, taking on Morgoth himself in the old tales.

Eonwe Valar: I believe they were classified as "Valar" at the time.
Eonwe Valar: In reference to the "time-guys" question.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Too bad, they would've made an extra few Maiar names :-)
Eonwe Valar: hehe :}
Eonwe Valar: That's my reasoning :}
Ar-Pharazon-V: Fionwe destroys the world to destroy his foe...
Eonwe Valar: Yeah, sounded cooler back then, heh.
Eonwe Valar: Now I look at it and wonder if he did that because it was the only way to stop him, if the world could've survived, or if the world was already in such disrepair that no one was left but Morgoth and the Valar anyway.
Eonwe Valar: Or if it's more that it happens in the fight.  We saw what happened when the Valar took the fight to Morgoth, and that's the very reason they held back once the Eruhini arrived.
Eonwe Valar: One would imagine that if they were no longer holding back, the Eruhini were already accounted for in some fashion.
Ar-Pharazon-V: I think I always interpreted it as the first one.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Can't truly take out Morgoth without taking the world with it.
Eonwe Valar: It's a valid point, with as much as he's poured of his power into it, making it, as the HoME aptly names it, "Morgoth's Ring"
Ar-Pharazon-V: Right :-)
Eonwe Valar: Anyway, I need to start getting ready to head off, so I shall bang the gavel here for Aftermeeting, and let the chat marathon begin!
Eonwe Valar: *Raises gavel into the air*
Arien V: *flares up ray on it *
Ar-Pharazon-V: *throws some gold at it*
Arien V: Fireworks =-O
Ar-Pharazon-V: I don't have your fancy powers ;-)
Eonwe Valar: *the gavel hits the podium, the sound resounding throughout the channel* Let the Chat Marathon begin!
Arien V: noticed an npc in WoW in the hunter class hall btw called "Moorgoth, Lord of Darkness .. i forgot and i dont have her logged on atm ^^ ]

Eonwe Valar: And Aftermeeting, of course :}
Eonwe Valar: Hehehe.
Eonwe Valar: OK, I must be off. Don't forget to send Varda a copy of the transcript with your Aftermeeting gaming, Phar :} I'll send her a copy of everything up to this point.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Will do.
Eonwe Valar: Take care all :} I'll try to be in later tonight :} For nw, my comuter needs rest :}
Arien V: have a good shiftg
Arien V: bye bye
Eonwe Valar: *for now, my computer
Eonwe Valar (Eonwe Valar) has left the room.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Namarie when you read this!
Ar-Pharazon-V: Perrrrsonal gaming time!

Ar-Pharazon-V: 3 shorter games for flashgaming this week, but fun!
Ar-Pharazon-V: is the first! Another point and click game from a commonly mentioned series, wherein you play a jester ordered to make the queen laugh.. or down the bottomless pit you go!
Ar-Pharazon-V: is the second game, a reaction and, ultimately, balancing game. Trick is to catch the numbers falling down and add equal numbers together until you end up with a 2048.
Ar-Pharazon-V: You can lose as many as you want over the edge of the couch, and feel free to continue until you get it, but you're still going to have a tough time getting all the way up there, because you'll need to stack them up eventually :-)
Ar-Pharazon-V: Note, though, it can get a bit laggy as you go on, which provides a bit more of an unintended challenge.
Ar-Pharazon-V: is the third game, third in a series of fun, simple puzzle games where you have to find clues and logic your way through the room, in this case getting all 20 sushi pieces.

Ar-Pharazon-V: Blizzard gaming!
Ar-Pharazon-V: I was hoping to have done more Diablo 3 this weekend, but hey, time ;-) Just wanting to get chapter 4 done before the season ends. Gotta have that dark unicorn pet!
Ar-Pharazon-V: Hearthstone: Did some of that, getting quite close to the next level for all classes. Played against Fladrif for a few matches in tavern brawl, for which I had a quest to win 5 as well.
Ar-Pharazon-V: This week's brawl: 2 robots facing each other, each with a different mechanic and a bunch of pre-set cards to fit the theme and abilities of each robot.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Heroes of the Storm: 2 of my heroes leveled to 8 this week! The stimpacks for the event have helped.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Zagara and Nazeebo. I'm not sure I like what the patch did to Nazeebo, might have to switch to a toad-based build from here on.
Ar-Pharazon-V: I'm definitely not going to be as effective with him as I was before.
Ar-Pharazon-V: WoW: Level 107 after today!
Ar-Pharazon-V: Evergreen in my class hall paid off, got my first new pet, the nightmare lasher.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Finished questing in Azsuna, now moved to Stormheim. Should hit 110 before I finish it, at this rate.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Finishing Azsuna included doing my first Legion 5-man instance, and getting the first of the 5 pillars.
Arien V: :-)
Arien V: from 107 to 110 doesnt take very long
Ar-Pharazon-V: Finished what I wanted to do with Brewfest, and continued getting stuff from Blackrock Depths. I'm down to 2 items from the same multi-loot encounter, though, so it's slow going, probably going to take me a lot of tries.
Ar-Pharazon-V: But that will have to go on hiatus, I have been requested to stop doing that stuff for a while in order to get to 110 faster, they want me ready to tank raids ;-)
Arien V: nice one
Arien V: a few guildies started doing mythics and lfrs ^^ but .. i am not in much hurry for that and need to figure out dps techniques that wont get me kicked of every group ;-)
Ar-Pharazon-V: hehe
Ar-Pharazon-V: Well, that instance I mentioned was my first tanking in Legion. Bit getting used to again after a month.
Ar-Pharazon-V: But fun to be bear :-)
Ar-Pharazon-V: And I got the movie dvd with some interesting goodies, though I haven't entered the codes yet :-)
Arien V: nice one
Arien V: has it been released then?
Ar-Pharazon-V: Yep. Supposed to be some new scenes too. But just haven't had the time yet, besides, I've got like 50 other movies on the recorder waiting for me ;-)
Arien V: hehe where did you get it?
Ar-Pharazon-V: Ordered it online in a webshop where I get all my stuff like that. Books, movies, games.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Except for a bit of a mishap with one of the Warcraft books which turned out not to be available, it has not often let me down.
Ar-Pharazon-V: (even now, said book is still showing as available when it isn't)
Ar-Pharazon-V: So yeah I think that's my news!
Arien V: very good
Arien V: well done
Arien V: good night and Namarie :-) i ll see u tomorrow
Arien V (AriehnV) has left the room.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Namarie!

Varda Valar (VardaValar1) has entered the room.
Varda Valar: Aiya Phar :-)
Ar-Pharazon-V: Aiya!
Varda Valar: Happy 19th Anniversary Marathon!
Ar-Pharazon-V: Goody, you're here, that means I can leave in a couple of hours ;-)
Varda Valar: heh, yay? :-)
Varda Valar: Just got home. Did we have a meeting ok?
Ar-Pharazon-V: You missed Arien by just under 20 minutes.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Yep!
Varda Valar: Huzzah!
Varda Valar: Got home two days early
Varda Valar: Thank you both so much!
Ar-Pharazon-V: So why are you home 2 days early? :-)
Varda Valar: Most of the family went hunting. Deer and hog
Ar-Pharazon-V: Ah.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Bit sad, but good food, I guess?
Varda Valar: You bet :-)
Varda Valar: We went on to see Fangorn's dad at the nursing home, quite a long way from the hunting party
Varda Valar: Did some deliveries for the family on the way home
Varda Valar: Cool that so many of the family could go hunting together. Schedules don't usually allow so they grabbed the chance. We got to hang out with them first and help with their very early breakfast. :-)
Ar-Pharazon-V: Indeed, it's always good to have family activities :-)
Varda Valar: We didn't have our gear. They would have loaned but gone without some of their needed gear.
Varda Valar: We helped out with building on the log cabin too.
Varda Valar: It's coming along very well. :-)
Varda Valar: Hmm, nothing new for the Tolkien Site or Anniversary yet.
Varda Valar: Maybe the gamers will send in some screenies. :-)
Ar-Pharazon-V: Tough to think of something, things are a bit busy ;-)
Varda Valar: got our theme going. :-)
Ar-Pharazon-V: No time for screenshots of me relaxing!
Ar-Pharazon-V: No time for relaxing.
Varda Valar: Stuff that makes a Tolkien character/race contented or happy, like a troll snoozing under a bridge
Varda Valar: It's also what makes them happy
Ar-Pharazon-V: An elf snoozing on a couch.. might need to play a blood elf for that.
Varda Valar: A dwarf may be happy swinging his axe, or an elf using his bow
Ar-Pharazon-V: A bear druid sleeping near a fire, like a Beorning.
Varda Valar: An elf climing a tree, or dwarf in a cave
Varda Valar: Aye :-)
Varda Valar: or going after honey or other fun stuff
Varda Valar: Doesn't have to be something sleepy
Ar-Pharazon-V: No honey in WoW, I think...
Ar-Pharazon-V: But it crossed my mind.
Varda Valar: Neat :-)
Ar-Pharazon-V: Wish you could do some fishing in bearform, that'd be something.
Varda Valar: ohh, aye!
Ar-Pharazon-V: and that's just one of several ;-)

Varda Valar: Report for LotRO:
Varda Valar: Kin members showing in the last seven days:
Varda Valar:
Ar-Pharazon-V: Ah good, looking up I don't see LotRO mentioned in the gaming news :-)
Varda Valar: Eonwe may figure I'm covering it enough under general News?
Ar-Pharazon-V: Perhaps!
Varda Valar: If there's no new update or LotRO event, he won't have any news.
Ar-Pharazon-V: Oh, btw, that Heroes of the Storm quest finally got changed to where all artifact pieces picked up by the entire team, not just the single player, counts towards your quest. So yay, should be easy enough to get now :-)
Varda Valar: Nice :-)
Ar-Pharazon-V: saving and sending transcript
