    Servant of the Secret Fire : 46 posts

    We just finished recording the podcast for the final chapter of FOTR. But, sadly, they made the decision to put it behind their paywall now… I’m trying to convince them to get it out there for other fans — there’s a chance I may be able to put it on a separate feed–that doesn’t require paying $5/mo–eventually.

    I’ve updated the forum to “Inspired by Tolkien

    Check it out, and let me know if you have other good ideas! 🙂

    *Full disclaimer, I couldn’t even bring myself to watch the third movie, the second was so bad.

    I watched the extended edition of the 3rd movie, and have regretted it ever since. The nonstop cgi, the superfluous battle, so much noise signifying absolutely nothing.

    We did have one at http://forums.theonering.com/viewforum.php?f=11

    It wasn’t very active (8 active threads over 2 years), so I’m hesitant to add it again.

    Maybe we can create a new forum and call it “Inspired by Tolkien” and make it for anything that shows how folks have been inspired by Tolkiens work to create their own things…

    Definitely open to this! Maybe call them:

    Other Authors

    Other Media

    Not so sure about “Other Media”, actually. Maybe there’s a better name…

    I’m a little leery of this title. I’m not sure what kind of engaging gameplay there can be when playing exclusively as Gollum.

    A lot of SNEEEEAKING I guess 😉

    You can subscribe to topics (and forums)… just click the “subscribe” button in the upper right!

    The connections and following will be fleshed out more in the future. It’ll include private messaging, creating your own groups, creating your own private forum, and more.

    It’ll take time. Some of it may be behind a patreon-style membership. Or not. Playing it all by ear, right now!👂

    This forum is built on a fork of BBPress + BuddyPress… so, right now that code won’t work. Getting a better editor running here is a high priority for me in the next few weeks. Hope to have a solution for you.

    I have a task to re-build The Reading Room… sadly, we lost all the authors on there when the site was updated in 2012. I need to change them from standard “posts” into another type of article that allows better grouping by story and type. It will get better eventually… right now I’m just focusing on the new boards/community here for the next few weeks.

    I’ve changed the settings so that editing is allowed after 1 hour. See if you can make the change now!

    There’s actually a chance it may be coming back, in a slightly different way. More details to come, but I think we’ll be recording the next episode next week (which usually means the podcast will be released the following Saturday).

    So good to see so many coming back… I expect we’ll see more new faces as the series on Amazon hits later this year!

    Thanks roady! It’s been a lot of fun to be a part of it… I have so many bits of Tolkien’s works in my head, sometimes I’m remembering things I’ve head before… and hoping my memory is staying true!

    Maybe we should add more? Any ideas for nice shiny new titles?!

    Thanks for catching that! Fixed!

    Well…. the problem lies in the base coding of the new community software. Post counts are automatically updated… so if I were to change it manually, it would just reset again the next time you post. I’m looking at adding some more features so that there’s more than just post count titles for users… Something for the dedicated long-time users of TORC 🤔

    Great! I’ve made it a sticky topic now…. lemme know if you need anything else as you get the pony rolling again!

    Thanks! Just recorded another episode today (they’re released each Friday/Saturday right now), and I think they’re getting better. Can’t wait to dive into Tom Bombadil with the guys.

    Regarding the guidelines, if you want to transfer the guidelines over to a new post, Hunter, I can make it sticky in the pony forum…

    As for the old RP stories, copying them over is indeed a daunting task (I actually tried to see if I could get the 3.5 million posts–gave up after a couple days of trying to make it work without tons of coding). But, if anyone wants to collect them, I can try and help post them… there’s just no way to correlate each post to the original poster.

    The old forums will stay up as long as the server it’s on stays up (it’s a server hosted by my business)–I expect that will be at least 2 years.

    Appreciate that! I think there are something like 5 thousand posts in The Reading Room… it’ll take time to separate the wheat from the chaff 🙂

    Added a sticky post in welcome showing the titles!

    What are those titles next to your name?
