Eonwe Valar: Elen Sila Lumenn Omentielvo!
Eonwe Valar: Membership:
Eonwe Valar: I'm back to my normal schedule tomorrow, so I won't be able to make it to meetings again.
AriehnV: awww :-(
AriehnV: glad you could join us for a few weeks tho
ArPharazonV: Indeed!
AriehnV: i hope that means at least that your shoulder is well again?
Eonwe Valar: Well enough to work.
ArPharazonV: Can't get more paid sick days, eh?
Eonwe Valar: Still have to be careful.

Eonwe Valar: Hope you made the most of your time off :}

Eonwe Valar: Web:
Eonwe Valar: From Varda via the News page:
Eonwe Valar: "Tolkien Site / Art: The links for DeepGroover-(T)'s models that won in the Nationals are now listed below on the day of the win."
Bust of the Living Dead

Eonwe Valar: Gaming:
Eonwe Valar: WoW:
Eonwe Valar: Darkmoon Faire this week.
ArPharazonV: Yepper, more attempts for the pet from the darkmoon pet battle supplies.
Eonwe Valar: Just a little over a week for 5.4. Hope you've all got what you want from Battlefield:Barrens.

Eonwe Valar: LotRO:
Eonwe Valar: Patch 11.3 came out this week.
Eonwe Valar: Patch notes:
Eonwe Valar: Also going on from now until Helm's Deep launches is the Bounder's Bounty.
Eonwe Valar: Long story short: You collect tokens by doing stuff in game, turn them in to the bounders in Michel Delving, and doing so unlocks stuff for you and contributes to a server unlock.
AriehnV: grats to Deepgrover really nice work
ArPharazonV: That a bit like the opening of AQ?
Eonwe Valar: When the server gets its quota a vendor unlocks so you can buy stuff using those same tokens, including a mount.
Eonwe Valar: Probably a close enough comparison.
Eonwe Valar: It's not going to actually unlock Helm's Deep, of course, as that's an expansion entirely, but it'll be running that long.

Eonwe Valar: Any other gaming news?
GwaihirValar: Final Fantasy XIV relaunched last week
ArPharazonV: Biiiit of flashgaming. Delved into Creeper World 2, but that's a lot harder than the first one, and the levels take a lot longer :-)
GwaihirValar: with A Realm Reborn, and it is a really well-made game... although they've had to briefly disable digital sales due to an unexpectedly large turnout
GwaihirValar: They're planning to expand server infrastructure early this coming week, and once they've done that they'll be reopening sales... and if you're looking for a new mmo to try, I recommend it.

Eonwe Valar: In other Membership/Gaming news, I intend to send out the GSMU mail soon. As I will not be able to make it to meetings, all responses will need to be via e-mail.
Eonwe Valar: Keep an eye out for the GSMU mail.
ArPharazonV: Bah, I wonder if I've ever done it through email before.
Eonwe Valar: Any other business before we move to Tolkien? Now would be the time to whisper me Tolkien topics.

Eonwe Valar: Tolkien:
Eonwe Valar: Ok, Tolkien game: Take last letter of previous name and think of a Tolkien name (person, place, thing) that starts with that letter.
Eonwe Valar: Type Aman if you're here.
ArPharazonV: Aman
AriehnV: Aman and a half
Eonwe Valar: Hehe, for a minute I thought it was just me and Phar :}
ArPharazonV: Aman and awoman?
AriehnV: *gg * Phara hehe
GwaihirValar: I'm a bit here but I cant' commit to a game... doing too many things at once
AriehnV: men and multitasking tsk
ArPharazonV: We want to, but we're terrible at it.
AriehnV: ;-)
Eonwe Valar: Eh, depends on the person, heh.
ArPharazonV: Sure. Some men don't want to.

karakedi25: it's partly the morphology of his languages
ArPharazonV: final round? Need to come up with a good one then.
karakedi25: plurals, derivational suffixes
ArPharazonV: Let's stick with Orthanc.

Eonwe Valar: Still with us Arien?
ArPharazonV: Let's wait until Arien actually says something.
