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,
-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).

letter to us fans. Hit "Enter" at the top to ooh and ahh over his
art, read more info, see photos including him, or jump into the
John Howe's comments (from his FAQ) on web sites
using his images:
sole UK dealer: ADC Books
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 www.john-howe.com
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.
