Welcome to the group for fans of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, including The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, and his various academic works. We are a mix of veterans and those new to the father of modern fantasy. The atmosphere is casual enough for someone wanting to learn but deep enough for those beyond knowledgeable.
*We are currently based in Discord ( https://discord.gg/HBbeNyN ) for virtual discussions until the state of the pandemic changes. After we begin meeting in person, Discord will continue to play a vital role in our group.*
Meetings range from discussion of Tolkien's legendarium, book readings, movie watching, trivia, trading theories, exploring canon-inspired music and art, games, and food. Topics focus on Tolkien's work, but we do explore mythology and literature that inspired Tolkien.
We have a Discord to continue these discussions when we can't meet in person. We also have a continuous read-along of The Lord of the Rings so that no matter when you join, you can discuss the master's most famous work.
The end goal is to meet like-minded folk and to have fun, in a way that both veteran and new JRRT fans can enjoy!
