I'll be giving away a bunch of free points to a bunch of members for the asking as long as they last...no strings attached. Well, maybe a few little strings.
For example,
  1. Points are for each member ONLY, not for the friends of members. You can do what you want with the points after you receive them.
  2. Request must be made by CURRENT members ONLY. "CURRENT" means you must be a member as of April 4, 2021. Any new membership request(s) after that date will have to wait for next time. Sorry.
  3. Request points only once per member. (If you request points in this group, please do not request points again if you are a member in any of my other groups)
  4. Yes, you may request points even if you've received points from me in the past.
  5. If you intend to request points using your multiple accounts, please don't. Remember, other deviants might really need some points too.

The Rules

THINKING OF BECOMING A MEMBER?

READ THIS FIRST




RULES FOR JOINING
:bulletyellow: Anyone and Everyone who is a fan of Tolkien's Middle-Earth related work is welcome to join. The only pre-requisite is that you are a fan.

:bulletorange: To join, simply hit the "join" button. Can't find it? Send a note to the founder/Co-founders to receive an invite.

:bulletblack: All of our members are kind, polite people. I would ask that you treat fellow members and contributors with respect. Please do not leave any rude or spiteful comments on the club page, in the club gallery, or on any member's deviations. This will not be tolerated. We'd like it if you didn't leave any such comments ANYWHERE on dA, but that's not our choice. Nevertheless, it won't be tolerated here.

:bulletwhite: The first violation of this rule will be a verbal warning.

:bulletwhite: The second violation of this rule will be suspension from club activity for three weeks, and automatic disqualification from our next contest.

:bulletwhite: The third violation of this rule will be removal from the club. You will not be allowed to re-join.

:bulletyellow: The club moderators reserve the right to decline any request to join, or to remove any member of the club for rude behavior. We will not accept rude, demanding request to join, and we will not tolerate the mistreatment of other members.

:bulletorange: Any persistence of bad behavior and rude, offensive commenting on the page or on deviations will result in the offender being reported directly to deviantART for misconduct.

:bulletblack: Anyone who responds to rude behavior with rude behavior of their own will be punished as well. Do not respond to rude behavior, please. Report it to a group moderator, and to a member f the dA staff.

RULES FOR SUBMITTING

:bulletyellow: The work in question MUST be your own. We will not accept art that has been done by someone other than you. Whether you claim it as your own (in which case it is stolen), whether you acknowledge the actual artist or publish a link to the original artwork, does NOT matter. We only accept art that is done by you. You acknowledge that, when submitting, the work you are submitting was drawn, painted, written, made, photographed, etc. by you. We also do NOT accept Doll Generators. If it is discovered that the work is stolen, you will only get one warning before you are removed.

:bulletwhite: The first violation of this rule will result in suspension of group activities, such as submitting art and writing for three weeks, as well as disqualification from our next contest.

:bulletwhite: The second violation of this rule will result in removal from the group. You will not be allowed to rejoin.

:bulletorange: You will only be allowed to submit a maximum of three deviations per day. This will ensure that our members are not overwhelmed with notifications, and that there's something new to see every day.

:bulletblack: We DO allow crossover pictures, however, Tolkien's characters MUST be the main focus. Examples of things we will NOT accept:
-The Golden Trio from Harry Potter hanging out with Frodo (one Tolkien character vs. three from another work)
-A 30 character piece of art, with characters from 15 other works, featuring only Merry and Pippin. (two Tolkien characters vs. 28 characters from other series)
-A character from a different series dressed as a LotR/Hobbit/Silmarillion character.
-

Within reason, any versions of Tolkien characters must CLEARLY show which character/characters they're supposed to be without aid from description or title.



(For example: There have been no images of certain Tolkien characters. If the artist has a concept based on a description of one of these unseen characters (places, objects or creatures), there would have to be a description or title. Therefore, it will be accepted.)


:bulletyellow: We also do not allow submitted pictures/screencaptures of the characters or actors that you've found on Google, MSN, Tumblr, etc. We do NOT accept Doll Generators.

:bulletorange: We do not accept work done of actors from the series. While they have played these characters, the work is not of the character itself, and we will not accept it.

:bulletblack: We DO accept memes and photo-manipulations. HOWEVER, we will not accept poorly done/rushed work. We're not going to accept something with MS Paint text slapped onto it, or a photo-manipulation that looks like it took five minutes. This rule applies to writing as well.

:bulletyellow: All submissions MUST be appropriate to post on deviantART, and additionally we ask that they be kept PG-13, keeping in mind that we do have some younger members.

ON SUBMITTING ORIGINAL CHARACTERS
This group DOES allow the submission of works involving Original Characters, or OCs, but only under these conditions:

:bulletorange:- Your character must be strictly a Tolkien based character. Unfortunately, we do not allow crossover characters, or one single character that you use as an OC for all of your fandoms. The reasoning for this is to prevent confusion.

:bulletblack: Please try to keep your character believable to the Tolkien universe. No time travelers, girls who got sucked into the book, etc. please.

:bulletyellow: Your character must be depicted as believable to the Tolkien universe. We will not accept a picture of a girl with long blonde hair and pointed ears in blue jeans and a tee shirt.

Please depict your character in traditional Tolkien costuming.

Don't worry about skill level, here. We don't judge based upon your drawing skills, as long as we can tell you put effort into it, which the vast majority do.

If you have any questions or are unsure when submitting a deviation, please contact :iconmelalina:

Our heroines, the aptly named Longshots, have been tasked with the infiltration of the Onyx Keep and assassination of the reviled King Kaj, but unbeknownst to them an even more dastardly regent has taken his place. Who is this oddly costumed conquerer and how do the three bravest, talented women of Glenhaven defeat and dethrone him? Find out in Planet Threadim Chapter 1.

Hi, I have a question about crossover submissions: what if there is one Tolkien character and one from another fandom - would that be allowed?:)

I don't know how I missed this question. Did I answer it?

I don't think one to one would be a problem.
