Name honor extensions:
    -(V) full member of the Valar Guild, includes ability for Tolkien, gaming, scouting, forum, AIM live meetings, and may include webwork.
    -(Valar) attained Tolkien honors as a full member of the Valar Guild and can do entry tests: Maia honor or Maia plus Vala honor. Maia is a LotR expert who contributed to the overall guild. Vala is a Maia who added being a Silmarillion expert and did a great deal for the overall guild.
    -(T) Tolkien-only member of the Valar Guild, meaning the person added to the Tolkien Site but does not game with the group. Changed format from -(TV) in 2008, otherwise identical.
    -(TV) Old designation for a Tolkien-only member of the Valar Guild. These folk are in the guild because they added to the Tolkien Site. They are also welcome for scouting, meetings, and forum.
    -ex  Unable to contact, so the membership dropped as gaming members.  Full members usually need to re-test and may re-take their old name if no new person has picked it up yet. Maia and Vala members need to restart as Full Members. (This is starting to change over to date instead of ex, since they aren't really exes in most cases, and may be site contributors.)
    No name extension means a friend who contributed, but did not say they would like to be counted as a member. Any accepted contributor to the Tolkien Site is eligible for the -(T).

Rotating images for the index page:

Rotating art is found under Tolkien in our art section: the Glittering Caves.
Artists showcased this way are:
    Bohemian Weasel-T
    Elatan-(T), previously Amillo-(Valar)


    Individual members, see above, or see The Glittering Caves of Aglarond 
    Bohemian Weasel - professional artist, including Tolkien subjects, by Soni Alcorn-Hender. Take a look at her art, but it is copyrighted and she does not normally allow direct links.
    The Dark Side of Tolkien - (Down). About the evil in Tolkien stories that had to be fought. Images, articles, links. By Jason Volonakis
    Glittering Caves of Aglarond - Valar Guild collection of original Tolkien-inspired art.
    Hildebrandt, Greg and Tim - see below for copyright and web site.
    Howe, John - see below for copyright and web site.
    A Journey to Middle-earth - personal page of the artist, Alexandra Helena Koskoinen. Permission is needed to use the images (for which we thank her kindness!) (Note: 9/29/2005 permission was given for the old site. Ask if linking allowed to new). Due to the bandwidth problem, going through Rolozo's page for individual pictures may be better. A Journey to Middle-earth (site closed). Her new gallery art site is in English with all her pictures, and in Finnish, but no longer has a separate Tolkien section.
    The Monastery of Ages - multi-user role playing. Includes a section of artwork including Tolkien art
    ROLOZO Tolkien page - our major contributor of images with his magnificent, huge image collection and kindly emails. By Ryan Lovett
    Tuvo-(V) - original art: painting of The Black Gates of Morannon; original sculpture of Frodo. His work is collected in the Glittering Caves of Aglarond.

    John Howe's comments (from his FAQ) on web sites using his images:
To put it in a nutshell, there are four conditions for use of any of my imagery on a web site (not including of course photos by other persons; in that case their permission must be requested).
1. That the use be strictly non-commercial.
2. That the work be properly credited.
3. That a clear link to be provided.
4. Last but not least, that the use of the image be in accordance with the image itself. This is perhaps hard to make clear, but I would refuse, for example, use of one of my pictures to promote ideas, concepts or undertakings with which I disagree, or for which the image's prime purpose is only to attract attention to something entirely different.
