LOTRO

Really great of you to do LotRO edits - afaik, none of us regulars are players. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:36, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm glad to help out. I have been into The Lord of the Rings ever since I first saw Rankin/Bass' The Hobbit. I read the books once or twice a year and I'm always finding some new discovery. I have been into video games for a long time as well and try to pick up every Middle-earth title that I can. LOTRO is by far one of the best ones out there. --Pinkkeith 19:17, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Twofold bother

Two things, really:

  1. I'm currently working on a better fairuse template for adaptations, which would include the official disclaimers. Could you get the Lotro's for me?
  2. Re: Sandbox. I did some scouring. Maybe interesting are (should be available at most university libraries, maybe mythlore is online on Muse:
  • Leslie Donovan, "The Valkyrie Reflex in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings: Galadriel, Shelob, Éowyn, and Arwen", in Tolkien the Medievalist (ed. Jane Chance)
  • Mac Fenwick, "Breastplates of Silk", Mythlore 81
  • Candice Fredrick and Sam McBride, "Women Among the Inklings" (maybe interesting background?), Contributions in Women's Studies, page 191
  • Doris Myers: "Brave New World: The Status of Women According to Tolkien, Lewis, and Charles Williams.", Cimarron Review 17 (1971 - perhaps a good example of early studies)
  • David Pretorius, Binary Issues and Feminist Issues in LOTR, Mallorn 40

Such an article on the wiki would be interesting, but rely heavily on secondary research rather than original. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 19:50, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
