New RPG: Elves wanted [Nov. 20th, 2009|09:05 pm]
Edhel
2ndage_gm
[mood |excitedexcited]



the_second_age is a brand new Tolkien-based RPG set in Eregion, at the time when the Gwaith-i-Mírdain were at the zenith of their power and inhabited a thriving kingdom, one of the last realms of the High Elves east of the Sea, which was eventually ruled by the ring-maker Celebrimbor, last descendant of Fëanor.

We hope to chart the rise and fall of the Mírdain, their work with Sauron in fair form leading up to the creation of the Rings of Power, and the various interconnected relationships, friendships and enmities both, between the Noldor of Eregion and the other Elven, Dwarven and Mortal kingdoms of the time.

Applications are now OPEN, we are looking for canon characters and OCs both.

Research Project Help [Nov. 11th, 2009|10:25 am]

peachesviii
Hello,  I am in the process of writing a research paper for my cultural anthropology class and I am needing to interview individuals of the sub cultural I am researching.  I have chosen to research Otherkins and I am hoping someone will be willing to take a few minutes to answer my questions.

Some of these might seem mundane but I promise they reflect directly to what I am required to cover in my paper.  I have tried to word these as not offend anyone but I might have failed, so if something is offensive I apologize in advance and if you would explain how it is offensive that would help me greatly.  As of right now everything I have found is either from a book or what I have read on the internet so I am at a disadvantage. Here goes.

1.  Is your identity as an Otherkin as a whole, more or less important than you identity as a specific creature?  Do you feel more connected with people of your own identity or simply otherkins as a whole.

2.  How does your identity as an otherkin affect your daily life?

3.  Do you feel that your friends and family understand the meaning of your otherkin identity?

4.  Have you awakened?  And if so would you tell me about it?

5.  What otherkin do you identify with?  Has this changed over time or have you always been the same creature?

6.  I have read that there are some biological explanations for a blending of species.  How do you feel about these explanations and does it matter to you if this can be explained by science?

7.  Do you practice a specific religion?  If so what and how does it affect your otherkin identity?

8.  How has identifying yourself as an Otherkin improved your life?

Once again I appreciate all the help I can get.  I have to turn my paper in the beginning of December so the sooner a response can be sent the better.

Thank you for all your help.

Unplanned Hiatus = Deadline Amnesty [Sep. 21st, 2009|10:09 am]

When the cats away the mouse will play ... but there's also no last minute notification that deadlines are approaching. :-) Nominations for the MOME Awards closed on September 14 but due to an unexpected computer hiatus it came and went without a word of warning from your friendly organizer. We've received an amazing number of nominations even without any announcements, but to be fair to everyone I'm going to open the nominations up for another two days before shutting it down for good.

If you didn't have a chance to submit your favorites earlier this month, if you already nominated but forgot a particularly loved story, if you've also been away and want to at least get a few things in, now is your time.

Awards are presented to both new and classic stories based on story length and pairing for both RPS and FPS (including crossovers). Complete details are listed in the nomination guidelines.

On September 23 the nomination doors will close for 2009 so stop by the mome_awards and get in those last minute nominations today!

Hello !  I just wanted to introduce myself to this com... and apologize for posting just one link.  

In an effort to not spam everyone, I just wanted to post this:

A link to all the Silmarillion related fan fiction I have ever written.

I'm currently working on a 18-chapter-long fic of the Dagor Dagorath centered on Aredhel, and would love to have some feedback. My fic journal is public and open to all.   Everything is rated and summarized.

Needless to say, I'm only playing in the professor's sandbox.

Thank you in advance, concrit is love! 

x-posted to other relevant coms, apologies in advance.
