Greetings everyone!

The Featured Deviations for October are up! Please take a look at all the wonderful deviations here.

We haven't had a contest in a while, so I think it's time to open up another! We have done "Characters from LOTR that were not in the films" and "The Ainur". We haven't done anything specific to the Hobbit or other Tolkien works yet, nor have we covered a topic that covers more than one book. Have a suggestion for anything? Please leave it here, and I'll put up a poll soon!

Due to the huge amount of non-English speakers in the club, as well as the several people who don't realize we have a folder system (grin), there is now an "Unsorted" folder for those who have no idea where to put their works. If you know where a piece should go, though, please put it in that folder and save the mods some time!

And finally, a reminder that the Favorites Folder is *not* for favorites, but works by our members that want critiques. You only submit your pieces to it, and all Tolkien-related pieces that you made make it into that critique/fave folder, regardless whether it made it into the gallery or not.

If you have any questions, concerns, comments, please leave them here.

I also would love something about the life in the Shire as contest.

I have got a qusetion about the Ainur contest: Do we only consider the Ainur, who stayed with Illúvatar or also those, who became the Valar and the Maiar later on?

How about... couples/families?

What about Númenor? That would be a great topic.

It woul be interesting as well to focus on one concrete tale or storyline from the Legendarium, i.e. A contest on Beren and Lúthien´ s story, or The Children of Húrin, The fall of Gondolin, etc...
