Ar-Pharazon-V (23:11:30):    fighting Emeriss for the anniversary, so many mushrooms, so many corpses...
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 questions there.
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 mid-late.
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 the week.
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 (23:17:18):    Membership:
Varda Valar (23:17:33):    In AIM we have Arien, Ar-Pharazon, Eonwe, and Varda
Eonwe Valar (23:17:38):    What code changes daily?
Eonwe Valar (23:17:43):    And why?
Varda Valar (23:17:57):    In Discord we have Arien, Frodo, and Melilot and Varda
Varda Valar (23:18:14):    In LotRO we just lost Fangorn, have Frodo, Melilot and Varda
Varda Valar (23:18:31):    The code to invite to Valar server changes daily for security
Varda Valar (23:19:00):    I can give you my friend name individually if you think you can find it again. :)
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.
Varda Valar (23:20:48):    Any other membership news?
Eonwe Valar (23:21:03):    AIM will push us soon enough, heh.

Varda Valar (23:21:28):    Web:
Eonwe Valar (23:21:31):    Whisper me your friend name please, so I can use it if I need to during the week.
Varda Valar (23:22:08):    Christopher Tolkien resigns as director of the Tolkien Estate, Ltd, and Tolkien Trust. He remains the Literary Executor. We /salute you, for the vast amount of meticulous work you've done and the pleasure you've brought us all.
       One article.
       Tolkien Society article.
       Old 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.. norse.. thing?
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, heh.
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 were. :)

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 news.
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 affected.

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: Battlegrounds.
WoW's thirteenth anniversary celebration is going for the next two weeks. Get some easy Timeless Badges, and a chance at lvl 900 loot from the bosses.
Check out the VoD with Ion Hazzikostas.
There were also some hotfixes this week.

Eonwe Valar (23:35:06):    Heroes of the Storm:
Eonwe Valar (23:35:27):    A new patch came out this week. Check out the patch notes.
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 is.
Eonwe Valar (23:35:57):    Check out the new blog Kobolds & Catacombs - Tale of the Fox Part 1.
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 privy to.

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 in LotRO:
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 (23:42:58):    StarCraft2: Fangorn, Eowyn, Faramir.
Varda Valar (23:43:03):    Any others to mention?
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:43:11):    More Fladrif seen, mostly Hearthstone!
Eonwe Valar (23:43:18):    WoW Lothar: Bofur.
Varda Valar (23:43:24):    Thanks!

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 guardian
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 though?
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 Thrones."
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 intro :D
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 up.
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 barely mined.
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):
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 hammerpad*
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 comment.
Arien V (00:06:24):    Thank you .. very agile hammer tonight
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):   
Arien V
ah right .. i forot the age factor ^^ . he kind of always was there
4:24 PM
Arien V
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 hat.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:13:31):    Oh, the good morning scene.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:13:48):    yeah, I never would've gotten that...
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 find anyone*
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 off."
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 Varda :)
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 time ~
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): 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): 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): 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 advantage.
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 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 achievements.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:12:04):    Part of Lysanna's journal, it seems. I was curious about the background of that boss, Ravencrest's daughter-turned-demonhunter.
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 this week!
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, namarie!
