Hello all!

Sadly, it seems, for the time being at least, that Erendis is no longer active on DA. (Actually she got in touch with me recently and she does plan to come back! I look forward to her return :-))

However, for the time being I'm going to take over the full running of the club. I've never done anything like this before, so bare with me as I find me feet!

With regards to submissions and whatnot, keep them coming in! We've had some really great art in here, and I'd love it to continue. I'd like this club to be a kind of hub that collects and showcases the best of Silmarillion themed art all across DA. We've also had quite a steady increase in our membership, so welcome to everyone who's joined recently.

Following on from that, I thought it might be cool if when you happen to be surfing the site, and find something you like that is Silmarillion related, to note me here and bring it to my attention. That way at the very least I can favourite it and everyone else can see it too.

I'd like to keep the Valar competition open, though I may be looking to recruit help with the running, judging, and prize selection for that one. If you've already submitted a Valar themed image, and would like to enter it in the competition, please let me know in a note.

Well, that's all I can think of for the time being, and any suggestions, assistance or whatever you may like to render would be greatly appreciated.

Take care,



Here's the Valar comp again just to remind you all:

Contest : Like the Valar? Think they're swanky? Well, now's your chance to enter art based upon your favorite Vala/Valie! We (meaning myself and co-administrators) have not yet come up with an appropriate reward but we promise that it will be worth your time!

Now traveller, perhaps you're wondering how best to join the Silmarillion-Club! Well friend, it's quite simple. There are only three things we ask of you:
1: Please note the administrator to add you to the listing.

2: If you have any art that you would like to post, add links to these pictures.

3: If the administrator has favourited your work, also make this known, because by Deviant Art rules there can be no favourites that are club members' pieces. This is seen as an abuse of the favourite system.

Good links for the weary traveller:

The Council of Elrond: Large and very thorough Tolkien resource site. Definately worth a look!

Henneth-Annun: A treasure trove of fan fiction from a large collection of talented writers.

The One Ring: a resource of information concerning characters from all ages.

The Encyclopedia of Arda: a VERY exhaustive encyclopedia of all terms associated with Tolkien's Middle-earth, complete with interactive maps. Recommended if references are made that you or someone else does not recognize.

The Barrow Downs: good for LotR as well as Silmarillion. Complete with quizzes, artwork, humor, and a horrible name generator that makes absolutely no sense! ^_^

Of Lords and Ladies: a Silmarillion character fanlisting

The Tolkien Sarcasm Page: the infamous home of "Balrog :With Bunny Slippers?" and the epic (and extremely humorous) review of Ralph Bakshi's "Lord of the Rings"
