    LOTRO Player Releases new Book About J.R.R Tolkien!!!

    It is finally out and available at major retailers. Due to the high-quality paper needed for the colored images, the physical copy usually runs between $34-39. However, the eBook version is under $10. I would love your support if you're able to help.

    J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth has captured the imaginations of millions of readers around the world for generations. He is considered the father of modern fantasy, but few understand how Tolkien’s worldview impacted his mythology. The Road Goes Ever On and On is the first book of its kind to place Tolkien within his proper context, giving the reader a deeper understanding of Tolkien and Middle-earth. Smith takes us on a quest through a wide range of Tolkien’s writings to unlock Tolkien’s perspective—a perspective that, like the elves who have sailed into the West leaving Middle-earth, has faded away from our world. You will gain an in-depth knowledge of Tolkien’s views on politics, environmentalism, religion, and much more. From the Valar to Hobbits, the free peoples closely follow Tolkien’s sentiments. In contrast, forces under the Shadow represent what Tolkien believed was immoral. Covering a wide range of topics, The Road Goes Ever On and On is filled with breathtaking illustrations bringing Middle-earth to life like never before, making this the ‘one book to rule them all.’

    Reviews

    Engrossing...Tolkien’s principles—patriotism, Medievalism, localism, Catholicism—are certainly out of fashion today. And yet they’re the foundation for all his books, which have sold hundreds of millions of copies. Mr. Smith does a wonderful job of explaining why modern readers are so enthralled by Tolkien’s reactionary vision. Whether you’re a casual Lord of the Rings fan or a serious Tolkien scholar, every page of Mr. Smith’s book will delight and fascinate. And if anyone ever tells you that fairy-tales are only for children, hand him this book. Tolkien ought to be regarded as one of the great social critics of our time, as Mr. Smith so masterfully demonstrates.

    As the popularity of Tolkien's work continues to endure, the importance of Jeb Smith's work continues to grow. This is because of a prolonged siege against Tolkien's work: the attempt to dislodge it from its Christian and Biblical foundations. Jeb Smith's insights are immensely helpful to this and future generations of Tolkien admirers.

    Its the Tolkien family of milking the product for all its worth, most likely an attemt to modernize his works as well, making it fit the political landscape.

    Look a bit closer; this is the perfect OPPOSITE of Amazon or the modernization of Tolkien. It places him in a reactionary, medieval and traditional Catholic mold to which he belongs.

    I have Tolkien-related items for sale. I'd like to know if I can post links to those sales here on the forums. The forum rules specifically disallow doing that but this advertisement has been here for a couple of days now so if it is actually permitted I'd like to know in advance so that I can take advantage of the new policy without worrying about a(nother) forum strike or an immediate ban.

    Item 8 of the "Code of Conduct" states:
    "8. You may not market, promote, advertise, or solicit products or services within the Game or Game Website."

    So has that rule been suspended, or not? Because I have computers for sale with LOTRO pre-installed and guaranteed to work that I'd like to move.

    I try to be lenient when players do something creative in the space and want to tell others about it. This one is borderline, but seems fine. As someone who uses forums for retro game collecting trades and sales, I'd be ok with a subforum for player to player memorabilia and LOTR trading/sales, but I don't think the community would be able to maintain such a forum without using it to try to sell in-game items or accounts, so it seems unwise.

    That seems reasonable. But it doesn't answer my direct question: Can I post links to my eBay sales?
