Eonwe Valar (23:12:38): Those Emerald Dream dragons
don't leave anywhere to stand.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:12:44): Emeriss is the worst.
Arien V (23:12:51): bugs can fly .. bugs do creepy
crawlies .. it is all bugs when nothing works on a computer .. oh and
now you mean bugs are really eating dead bodies so you think a bug is a
bug when it cleans up ?
Varda Valar (23:13:49): Bugs are useful. ;)
Varda Valar (23:14:02): Aiya Eonwe!
Varda Valar (23:14:25): We are setting up in Discord.
Trying to get in practice before AIM goes poof and they can't ask
Varda Valar (23:14:49): Would Phar and Eonwe like to
have it in parallel before we lose AIM next month?
Varda Valar (23:15:01): Let's us get the hang of it.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:15:09): I said I'd go there on our
first December meeting. Is that too late?
Varda Valar (23:15:38): You might not have anyone to
ask questions or give you codes if no one has AIM
Varda Valar (23:15:48): Ok.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:15:50): No, AIM won't go out until
Varda Valar (23:16:17): yep, that works
Varda Valar (23:16:26): Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo!
Eonwe Valar (23:16:28): I'll look into Discord during
Varda Valar (23:16:44): Luckily it loads fast
Eonwe Valar (23:16:48): And I'll still have AIM till
the end, so if Phar needs help he's got me, heh.
Varda Valar (23:16:52): but our code changes daily
Varda Valar (23:17:00): I'll have AIM til the end too

Varda Valar (23:19:09): Arien already has it
Varda Valar (23:19:14): Anyone want it?
Eonwe Valar (23:19:49): Hmm. On bnet I can send a
link to join our community and set a life for the code.
Varda Valar (23:20:20): I can force it to stay the
same, but rather not. You can call me by my friend name and get it.
Varda Valar (23:20:43): Just be simple to do at a
meeting, but not pushing anyone this early.

interview posted on World Crunch.
Arien V (23:22:35): hmmm whythat?
Eonwe Valar (23:23:05): Well, he's got to be somehere
around 90 by now?
Varda Valar (23:23:22): He's 93. Plus there's a push
to do a Middle-earth TV show etc. He's underwhelmed but other families
are ok with it.
Varda Valar (23:23:32): other family members
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:23:46): TV show? Interesting.
Varda Valar (23:23:50): Been very hard to collect
royalties even on the movies, had to use lawyers.
Arien V (23:24:00): ah right .. i forot the age
factor ^^ . he kind of always was there
Arien V (23:24:05): or is there :)
Eonwe Valar (23:24:31): Movie rights were sold by his
father long ago, so I imagine it would be hard, yes.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:25:23): Through that article I
found a few of the books he published, realizing I still don't have Beren and Luthien. Added it to my
webshop wish list.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:25:27): Maybe for Christmas?
Varda Valar (23:25:42): Sounds good :)
Varda Valar (23:25:49): He has a poem out too, new
Varda Valar (23:25:57): new to publishing that is
Eonwe Valar (23:26:10): Oh bah, I think I don't have
that either, lol.
Eonwe Valar (23:26:25): I better take a closer look
at my collection.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:26:39): Last I got was that..
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:26:47): Sigurd and?
Eonwe Valar (23:27:05): Sigurd and Gudrun.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:27:10): Sounds about right.
Eonwe Valar (23:27:31): I thought I bought a copy of Beowulf Tolkien was involved with,
but I don't see it so I must not have.
Varda Valar (23:27:56): I have that problem. :)
Eonwe Valar (23:27:59): I miss my local bookstore,
Varda Valar (23:28:42): Ours was gone a long time
ago, very sad. Now the local library has been flooded [again]. At least
this time rebuilding on higher ground.
Eonwe Valar (23:30:19): Good idea.
Varda Valar (23:30:34): Was relieved to hear they
Varda Valar (23:30:44): Gaming:
Varda Valar (23:30:57): Eonwe, do you have time to
give the Gaming Report?
Eonwe Valar (23:31:13): Aye, but first a bit of web
Varda Valar (23:31:37): Thank you for both
Eonwe Valar (23:32:45): The Games
Site may be down for a few minutes at some point during the
week while I make some updates. All other portions of the Valar Guild site will not be
Eonwe Valar (23:33:42): Now for the Gaming news.
Eonwe Valar (23:33:57): World of Warcraft:
Eonwe Valar (23:34:43): This week's bonus event:

week. Check out the patch
Now going is the event Dragons of the Nexus.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:35:32): Been sending out my three
highest chars for those every day for unique loot appearances. They're
all very much a pain to get to and to kill (Emeriss the worst).
Eonwe Valar (23:35:42): Hearthstone:
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:35:51): The anniversary bosses that
Eonwe Valar (23:35:57): Check out the new blog Kobolds

Eonwe Valar (23:36:26): Yeah, I've been using my two
max level chars.
Eonwe Valar (23:36:41): That's it for gaming news I'm
Varda Valar (23:37:25): Dis is now with us from
LotRO, unable to use LotRO and Discord simultaneously.
Varda Valar (23:37:59): Fellow Valarites seen this past week
Varda Valar (23:38:19):
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:38:20): (that's why AIM is better!)
Varda Valar (23:38:53): Dis doesn't enter AIM either.
Varda Valar (23:40:24): She requests help for the
Deeping Wall epic, after the meeting. (In LotRO)
Varda Valar (23:40:57): Please note Arveleg's name in the above list.
Varda Valar (23:41:04): He's reactivating.
Varda Valar (23:41:26): He says he can only come to
LotRO now and then, but was relieved to hear that was ok.
Varda Valar (23:41:44): He's been a big Tolkien Site
contributor. See the Timeline for one.
Varda Valar (23:42:48): StarCraft/BroodWar: Fangorn, Varda

Varda Valar (23:45:22): Tolkien:
Eonwe Valar (23:45:23): (Side note: Aha, there's my
copy of Beowulf :})
Varda Valar (23:45:26): Melilot-Today
at 4:44 PM
I just finished my most recent reread of the Silmarillion!
Varda Valar (23:46:12): Melilot-Today at 4:45 PM
I remembered closing the book and realizing that, for all the epic
beauty in Lord of the Rings -
it's merely an echo of an echo of what has already passed.
Varda Valar (23:46:22): Melilot-Today at 4:46 PM
Minis Tirith is beautiful, but it's practically squalor next to the
beauty of Valinor.
Arien V (23:47:07): oh i ve got that open with my
Arien V (23:47:23): if she wants i can help her there
Varda Valar (23:48:55): [Kinship] Luithien: woot
Varda Valar (23:49:00): (that's Dis)
Varda Valar (23:49:15): You have a time problem
Varda Valar (23:49:46): What about the rest of us?
We've all read the Sil and LotR in here.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:51:21): I've always thought I
wanted the Silmarillion in LotR scale :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:51:29): Might fill an entire room,
but I'd still like it!
Varda Valar (23:51:54): yay for ebooks then. ;)
Eonwe Valar (23:52:51): If they're looking for a good
setting for a tv series, Silmarillion
would be the most open for "new action" so long as they don't change
the premise of the world it's built in. I don't want "Game of Noldorin
Varda Valar (23:53:22): Chris gave us a start, with
such things as Children of Hurin,
Beren and Luthien. Afraid he
won't be giving us more of them though, can only hope.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:53:22): I dunno, I'd like to see
the map of Beleriand like in the GoT
Arien V (23:53:32): hehe that would be entirely
inapropriate for Tolkiens works Eonw :)
Varda Valar (23:53:50): Melilot-Today at 4:52 PM
The name index alone would be a novel.
Varda Valar (23:55:06): That map would be nice.
Arien V (23:55:07): and to be honest .. i dont think
that the Eldar ever behaved as bad as the Houses of Westeros :)
Eonwe Valar (23:55:20): And aye, any of of the events
the Sil actually gives
information on would be a book or three in its own right, hehe.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:55:24): "We're in the last season,
and still haven't seen the flying dragons." *Ancalagon appears, gets
shot down by Earendil* "Well, that was underwhelming."
Varda Valar (23:56:54): Kinship] Suelle: I mean, Beren and Luthien alone could make
for a great TV series.
Varda Valar (23:57:11): (Suelle is Melilot in LotRO.
We're talking all over.)
Eonwe Valar (23:57:18): Well, miniseries maybe.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:57:29): Oh, could make a good
season out of that, perhaps. Think 13 episodes is too much?
Eonwe Valar (23:57:47): Or at most a 10-13 episode
season. Don't know if I want them to stretch it on too long and mess it
Varda Valar (23:58:54): The Sil is huge and deep. It has
material for tons of stories, articles, ;poems, art and would still be
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:59:38): If you can make an MMO out
of LotR, what you can do with the Sil
should be endless.
Eonwe Valar (23:59:42): The longer it ran, and the
more they have room to fill it in for themselves. Well, I just don't
have that much faith in movie or tv writers.
Monday, November 20, 2017
Varda Valar (00:00:40): Guess we'll just have to
write the stuff ourselves for some Tolkien Site or other.
Varda Valar (00:01:18): Still be interesting to see
it as a graphic novel, done well.
Varda Valar (00:01:48): Just want to see it fleshed
out. Soooo much there.
Varda Valar (00:02:33): It's been an hour and some of
us need to leave shortly. Shall we call it here?
Varda Valar (00:02:51): Maybe that would let Arien
and Dis join up?
Eonwe Valar (00:02:58): Yeah, if only there was some
--Guild-- of people who liked all of Tolkien's characters, like the
--Valar--. Maybe we could find a place like that, and contribute
stories and stuff that tries to actually pay respect to the world
created. Anyone know where we can find one of those? :}
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:02:59): Ahh, the best Tolkien
topics are when you don't even realize we're in a tolkien topic.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:03:03): More freedom, perhaps ;)
Varda Valar (00:03:21): I know we're in one. ;)
Varda Valar (00:04:11): Cue music:
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:04:10): Ack, I had plans once, I
recall, of doing a stickfigure series of Tolkien moments, that's close
to a graphic novel ;)
Varda Valar (00:04:14): http://www.valarguild.org/
Eonwe Valar (00:04:44): Ooh, I've never been there.
Gotta check that website out! lol :}
Varda Valar (00:04:52): hehehe
Varda Valar (00:05:14): How did this turn into an ad?
Arien V (00:05:26): btw did anyone recognise the
quote i was hinting at when i entered the room :)? Just to give you an
idea for a Tolkien moment :)
Varda Valar (00:05:32): *hammers dance out to music*
Varda Valar (00:05:44): *run down the hand onto the
Varda Valar (00:05:53): *da da dahhh!*
Varda Valar (00:05:58): *run back to the Shelf*
Varda Valar (00:06:02): After-meeting!
Varda Valar (00:06:15): Scrolling back for Arien's
Arien V (00:06:24): Thank you .. very agile hammer
Eonwe Valar (00:06:27): I missed it, unless it was
about the bugs.
Arien V (00:06:46): that was the one :)
Varda Valar (00:06:55):
ah right .. i forot the age factor ^^ . he kind of always was there
or is there :)
Varda Valar (00:07:59): Better just hit us over the
head with it, Arien.
Eonwe Valar (00:08:11): I didn't catch it then. Don't
remember that unless it's from something in the Hobbit.
Eonwe Valar (00:08:31): Well, I don't remember it
either way, but sounds like something from the Hobbit :}
Arien V (00:09:38): what we all mean with bugs bugs
can fly .. bugs do creepy crawlies .. it is all bugs when nothing works
on a computer ..
Arien V (00:09:42): bugs can fly .. bugs do creepy
crawlies .. it is all bugs when nothing works on a computer .. oh and
now you mean bugs are really eating dead bodies so you think a bug is a
bug when it cleans up ?
Arien V (00:09:50): yaaaay!
Arien V (00:10:17): Eonwe has a 100 points and wins
.. fireworks !
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:10:19): I'm... still lost.
Arien V (00:10:52): oh i shall explain ...
Varda Valar (00:10:58): Please.
Arien V (00:13:00): "Good
morning, " said Bilbo, and he meant it. Burt Gandalf looked at him from
under his bushy eyebrows , that stuck out further rthan the brim of his
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:13:31): Oh, the good morning scene.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:13:48): yeah, I never would've
Varda Valar (00:13:58): Thanks. I was lost too.
Arien V (00:14:15): "What do you mean?" he said. "do
you wish me a good morning, or that it is a good morning , or that you
feel good this morning, or that it is a morning to be good on?"
Arien V (00:15:33): "All of them at once," Bilbo
said. "And a very fine morning foir a pipe of tobacco, out of doorf.
There is no hurry"
Arien V (00:16:53): "If you have a pipe of tobacco on
you, sit down and have a fill of mine!There s no hurry and we hjave all
day before us!"
Arien V (00:18:49): Then Bilbo sait down on a seat by
the door, and blew out a grey beautiful smoke ring that sailed up into
the air without breaking and floated away over The Hill.
Arien V (00:19:34): "Very pretty, " said Gandalf "but
I dont have the time for smoke rings this morning.
Arien V (00:20:33): and i am looking for someone to
share in an adventure, that I am arranging, and its very difficult to
Arien V (00:22:07): I shouikl think so , in these
parts " said .. Bilbo .. Nastyu disturbing things that make you
uncomfartable, things, make you late for dinner. Cant see twhat anyone
sees in these things .. "
Arien V (00:22:23): a bit further down
Arien V (00:24:30): "Good morning!" he said at lastWe
dont want any adventures here, no thank you, lyou can try it over the
The Hill or across the Water. "
Arien V (00:26:12): "What a lot of things you use
"Good morning for" said Gandalf . " Now you mean that you weant to get
rid of me and that it would that it wont be good at ull until i move
Arien V (00:26:22): Quote (ish) end :)
Eonwe Valar (00:26:36): hehe
Varda Valar (00:28:11): Thanks. :)
Arien V (00:28:20): :)
Varda Valar (00:29:49): Fangorn-(Valar) was looking
over the shoulder and says "Hello, everyone."
Eonwe Valar (00:29:58): Heya :}
Varda Valar (00:30:11): He gave a chuckle for the
Good morning quote.
Arien V (00:30:51): Hello Fangorn :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:31:05): Good morning probably takes
a long time to say in Entish!
Varda Valar (00:31:12): We are in After-meeting, so
everyone please feel free to dance off with the hammers if you need to
go. Or stay and just have fun.
Varda Valar (00:31:24): Aye, we're still saying good
morning from our first date in college.
Arien V (00:31:32): hum hom
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:31:42): And the way Gandalf can
apparently go on about such small things makes me wonder if he'd take
centuries to have a conversation in Entish.
Arien V (00:31:54): thats been a long time as well
Arien V (00:32:02): how long ago was that?
Varda Valar (00:32:17): 1972
Arien V (00:32:34): uh .. i was 2 years old at the
Eonwe Valar (00:32:38): I will take my chance to get
moving then. Take care all and Good Morning :}
Varda Valar (00:32:41): hehe
Varda Valar (00:32:47): Happy movie-going!
Arien V (00:32:58): Enjoy :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:33:03): Namarie!
Varda Valar (00:33:13): Namarie!
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:33:12): 1972?
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:33:17): I was -13!
Arien V (00:34:14): youngling :)
Varda Valar (00:35:17): :)
Varda Valar (00:38:41): Namarie :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:38:54): namarie!
Arien V (00:55:23): Namarie all :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:55:47): namarie!
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:00:19): Personal gaming report to a
mostly empty room!
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:01:21): finding some flashgames...
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:07:48): https://www.kongregate.com/games/tonys139/picnic-panic
is the first! Rather gruesome, but fun. See how long you can outrun the
bear! One button game, jump, double jump, and when you've got enough
coins, glide over obstacles.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:08:18): Not much to it other than
that, that I can see, but it's a simple time-waster ;)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:22:19): http://www.kongregate.com/games/mafagames/cake-connect
is the second game, seems familiar to me, might have linked something
like that recently, but I think I recall that one as being more
annoying, so probably not! Stack cakes of various kinds, don't let them
fall off the screen, and collect the orbs by making sure cakes are
positioned at those locations.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:27:17): Simpler than it sounds,
perhaps, and nice music!
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:28:43): http://www.onemorelevel.com/game/kirigami
is the third! A puzzle platformer where you have to slice the screen in
order to slide parts of it, so you can reach the goal without dying.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:33:42): Blizzard gaming!
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:36:29): Heroes of the Storm: Level 231 now,
a few more loot chests, including the last one for the Halloween event,
which is over now. Got to level 2 with a hero I'd never played before
through a brawl (bloodlust brawl, occasional bloodlust on some players,
giving extra attack speed etc), Chen I think, the brewmaster tank.
Interesting hero, might level him after I'm done with Rexxar. It's fun
to throw barrels and set people on fire, it's closely based on the
brewmaster hero from Warcraft 3.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:38:02): Diablo 3: Working on season some
more, moved up to master difficulty because hard just felt too boring
and too slow experience gain. Hope to be able to keep up on master
until level 70, currently at 36.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:54:50): Hearthstone: Had the chance to push
along some classes that were a bit behind in experience, to the point
that there's now only one or two games between the highest and the
lowest. Almost halfway to the next level! This week's brawl was styled
after the upcoming expansion, with the players getting a shared quest;
when it's completed both heroes get a treasure mob to be killed by the
other hero, with the person who completed the quest getting an
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:55:03): Bit of luck and some smart
play required :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:59:13): WoW:
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:59:48): Got myself a blazehound
from the old raids! Only 4 pets to go from the Cataclysm achievement.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:03:21): Again cleared the Tomb of
Sargeras in one raid, and this time I got a whole bunch of loot,
completing my gear from heroic difficulty for several specs, so I'm
pretty much ready to move on to Antorus now, loot-wise, as well as
getting me the set achievement for the Tomb tier. Also got my last
feral legendary in that raid, a headpiece shaped like a cat, visible at
http://www.wowhead.com/item=151801/behemoth-headdress for those
curious, around which I shaped an entire orange and furry transmog set
for my guardian spec which uses claws. Feral spec might have been
better thematically but I preferred the claws over the daggers, and I
still like my winged mantis set for feral.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:05:38): Worked further on my
Talon's Vengeance rep, now well under 300 marks required. Almost
halfway from honored to revered.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:06:04): Battlegrounds were useful
for that, and this was a week with a battleground weekly quest, so I
made good use of it :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:07:17): Fourth falcosaur questline
still on schedule, completed the ninth quest today, giving another toy
to dress up any of the four falcosaur hatchlings you're using, this
time a dirty spoon. I've now got all 4, and the combination looks...
rather random and silly.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:07:28): They don't compliment each
other or anything.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:07:36): Still, fun to have.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:08:27): Legionfall supplies almost
done, got my 49th contribution on one of the buildings out of 50.
Should be completely done during the next week.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:09:58): Did the pet dungeons again,
working towards the third pet reward for Deadmines, but still no luck
for Wailing Caverns on the third pet. I did get a duplicate of one of
the others, but I'd rather have had the rare spore pet.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:11:31): And since we'd completed
the raid on thursday, a few of us dove into mythic 5-mans tonight for
achievements. Completed about half of them, I think. Not bad progress.
Found out there's one in Black Rook Hold which requires a bunch of
pages to be found, different with each instance ID, but that can also
be done on normal, so I'll farm it later after I get the other
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:12:04): Part of Lysanna's journal,
it seems. I was curious about the background of that boss, Ravencrest's
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:12:20): Still am, but now I know
where to find the info :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:13:50): And finally the 13th
anniversary. Painful, time-consuming. Callback to the old bosses which
are no longer properly in the game, with unique loot appearances.
Including one druid-targetted mace (at the time) which I apparently no
longer had to unlock the appearance of, but which can now no longer be
looted by a druid in any spec. A bit silly, but I hope to get it with
my warrior for nostalgia's sake.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:15:20): Using 3 characters to visit
all the bosses they can get missing appearances from every day, which,
alas, takes up so much time that I still couldn't get anything
Argussian done. Getting the crucible before raid comes out is... not
gonna happen. Just when I think something's ending, another event or
project pops up. Well, let's get through the next week first, that
should see 2 daily projects coming to an end, anyway
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:15:22): .
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:16:10): And that's my report for
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:20:22): Oh right, one more Heroes of the Storm thing: Had a
quest combination for Overwatch and Assassin this week, so I bought
myself a Genji. Odd hero, rather squishy, but can get some nice kills
in with a bit of luck. I even had a lot of Genji-themed stuff from the
lootboxes already, like a banner and announcer. So he started off in
full outfit already, which is nice :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:20:42): And that's it! Hopefully!
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:22:46): (there, 3 more marks from
an arena wq, now halfway to revered)
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:57:45): Transcript tomorrow,
