    varde was an early version of Quenya. Its more of the root form that Tolkien created. Where did you get your dictionary?? Thats awsome to have.e

    I see!

    The dictionary was with the lessons...I think I put a link a while back but I'm too lazy to go find it again. It's really small. There's another one too from somewhere else that's longer but not as accurate, but that doesn't have varde in it either I think. But there are so many versions of Elvin out there, because people have tried to make it more speakeable by adding vocabulary, but they didn't always make up vocabulary together, so there are different words for the same thing and stuff.

    Aayla Secura is a absolute beuatiful Jedi.
    Amy Allen is just as good.

    Just wondering...
    Who do you guys think is the best/most intriguing character in Tolkien's works?

    Most intriguing character?

    Being a monster fan I found the Orcs to be extremely interesting. Ugluk and Grishnakh and their power struggle. I really loved that Tolkien brought Smeagol back into the story. He was my favorite character, next to Smaug from "The Hobbit". The Witch King is a favorite of mine too.

    As far as the good are concerned... I'd have to pick Samwise, Eowyn and Elrond.

    I would have to say Strider/Aragon. He is so mysterious and you don't know if you should trust him in the beginning.

    Bombadil is certainly the most interesting, since we know so little about him (and because HE ROCKS!! : ) )

    After that, Aragorn, Feanor (wish he'd had a bigger part, which I know, is asking a lot), and Gandalf (ditto, wished he blown some orcs away as the white rider) and Elendil.

    Another interesting character is Mandos (God of Justice) Never quite understood why he doesn't do more to prevent all the stuff that happens, considering how much he knows of the future...though I guess he does have a certain responsibilty..still, why allow the Trees to die!!!

    (sigh...) Just for the heck of it, I'd like read an AU where that DOESN't happen...

    Guess what!!! I looked up stuff in my dictionary and figured out how to say "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away" in Quenya! It is:

    Anda lúmë yá, mi nomë haira, vahaira...

    I might have done something wrong...please tell me if you know. Actually, there's no word for galaxy so it really says "A long time ago in a place far, far away," but oh well.

    No, you didn't ;)

    Most intrigant characters:Treebeard,Galadriel and Tom Bombadil..
    In the Darkest side...Gollum...AND SAURON,NO DOUBT!!!And what about the Balrog?

    By the way, where do you find those Elvin dictionaries? Is there anyone that can be downloaded?

    Thank you Greesha!Cool site! I didn't know that this kind of things could even exist...Elvin!When you told us you had translated a poem into Elvin, I thought you had invented the words, making them sound as the few Elvin we've heard in LOTR movie! :eek:

    BTW,I have just fixed my eyes upon your signature.I like it a lot. :)

    Jedi_Tabee:so you are 119 years old, uh?Not bad.But you still cannot reach me...
    I'm Yoda's progeny!I've got...450 years, more or less... :cool:
    A bit like the Elves, that Yoda, don't you think so? Long life, (not eternal, but long)
    very wise, able to survive in all kind of environment, and with that large, pointy ears...
