6/11-Change your name to something obscure from Lord of the Rings Day!

Post by Strong Vader on Thu Jun 10, 2010 4:38 pm

To breathe new life into the forum, at least temporarily, I will be hosting a "Change Your Username Day" tomorrow. Change your name to something obscure from the Lord of the Rings, and there will be a vote to see whose new name is the best obscure name from LotR.

Both. I'm using one from the Fellowship of the Rings.

Well I tried to change my name to something obscure from the Lord of the Rings, but it was too long, so it got cut down to this. Sorry!

I am the slightly obscure and slightly important Glóin! Guess who that is (Without looking it up. Like I had to.)

Easy. One of the fifteen who went to the Lonely Mountain to take it from Smaug the Dragon, and fathered Gimli.

I am Éomund of Eastfold, Chief Marshal of the Mark, Man of the House of Eorl in Rohan, Husband of Théodwyn, and father of Éomer and Éowyn, who were of great importance during the War of the Ring. I was slain in 3002, and am mentioned ONCE, count it, ONCE, in The Lord of the Rings. Beat that for obscurity!

Mine's from the Fellowship of the Ring, mentioned once:

JRR Tolkien wrote:Chapter II
The Shadow of the Past
The talk did not die down in nine or even ninety-nine days. The second disappearance of Mr. Bilbo Baggins was discussed in Hobbiton, and indeed all over the Shire, for a year and a day, and was remembered much longer than that. It became a fireside-story for young hobbits; and eventually Mad Baggins, who used to vanish with a bang and a flash and reappear with bags of jewels and gold, became a favourite character of legend and lived on long after all the true events were forgotten.

Why not just call yourself "Obscure LOTR Character"? That'll fit, right?

You guys do know there's a poll on this, right?

But you can only get so obscure with characters. By using "something obscure from th"e Lord of the Rings, I'm covering every last inch of the book. My name could be referencing some line of dialog so minor, so brief, so unmemorable that even SV doesn't recognize the reference.
