About the Valar Guild:
Guild came into existence October 4,1997.
We still have a number of the original members
have not yet missed having a Sunday meeting.
We are a guild for literate, polite people who
to actually play a
game. Courtesy is also to be given to the "enemy".
The Valar Guild's Full Members are
Tolkien fans who
enjoy writing and
chatting about Tolkien-inspired subjects and
playing online games to which we give a Tolkien theme.
site includes Gaming
Tolkien interests include all works
including Lord of the Rings, which are the source for inspiring
articles, stories, poetry,
humor, art, language work, and book reviews.
play many games. Our current favorite is Lord of the Rings
where the main Valar Guild branch is on the Landroval server
with small branches on Ithil and Anor).
Our number two game is World
WarCraft (official branches in the Americas are on the Lothar
for Alliance and Uldaman server for Horde). Other games played
are Diablo I, Diablo
Lord of Destruction, StarCraft/
BroodWar, WarCraft III/Frozen
Throne, Dark Age of Camelot, EverQuest, Eve Online. We use
our Tolkien-named characters (for recognition and theme) in
cooperative play style.
Each Full Member "owns" his
own Tolkien character to interact with the others in ready-made
relationships, yet in a friendly manner even if one is an Elf
other an Orc. The name helps in recognition for gaming,
Forum, and Sunday AIM meetings. Maiar and Valar honor names have
earned after earning Full membership.
Tolkien-only members work only with our
Guild-friends are non-member gamers of the same
philosophy who have not yet passed the minimum requirement to read
Lord of the Rings
, but who
like to play with us anyway.
We allow membership in other guilds, clans,
etc, as long as this causes the Valar Guild no harm.
Your general contact for anything concerning
Valar Guild or Tolkien is Varda.
