TLDR: Sindarin Class is on break until the website is fixed. If you’re a student in the current Sindarin class, you may have noticed some technical problems plaguing the textbook’s website. The menu has gone all wonky, certain pages are giving nothing but errors, and you can’t login. Well, it’s not a problem on your […]

There are a bunch of new essays listed in the Essays page, thanks to a reader sending me a list of good ones that they like. If you know of any good ones, and think that they should be listed on my website, feel free to send me the links! It’s been a while since […]

Because of the work I’m doing on the Neo-Sindarin textbook, I ended up giving the calendar pages a much-needed overhaul. In the Calendars of Arda essay, I removed the words I made for the Sindarin version (the Sindar weren’t interested in dates as much as others were, and the Noldor and the Gondorians preferred Quenya […]

I got a nifty little pluggin that allows me to manage users of the website much more effectively! So, I’ve opened registration here. Now registered members are the only ones who can make comments. I’ve gotten tired of clearing out hundreds of spam comments (the actual reason for this update!) You don’t need to be […]

LotRO Neo-Sindarin Plugin It’s finally complete! After months of translating coding and testing, you can finally get it! It’s available for free download from The Dwarrow Scholar’s website. The plugin is for the Exilic and Woodelven dialects of Sindarin, since it is for talking with fellow elves in the 3rd/4th age of Middle-earth. I had […]

I handle all kinds of translation requests, including translating lyrics! If I translate lyrics for you, I’ll also help you learn how to pronounce them. That’s what I did for Rebekah Eden. Her album, “Rowing in Eden” that includes “In the Days” (the song with Sindarin in it) is available here: http://www.rebekaheden.com/

I don’t usually post about personal things, but I’m breaking that rule today, because I’m trying to process something that happened to me recently. I was diagnosed with high-functioning autism a few weeks ago. At first, all I saw was the downsides. How it makes me difficult to work with, how it makes it difficult […]

Welcome Valaraen! Valaraen is the first beta reader to sign up with the new system! You can read their profile on the Beta Readers’ page. If you know anyone who would be interested in this, give them a link to the Beta Reader Application form.

Another thing that I ended up changing extensively is how the beta-reader system works. The changes I made will hopefully make beta readers feel a lot more secure and have more control over their profiles. Change #1 – Beta Readers are now members of the website. If your application is accepted, I’ll make you a […]

Hello everyone! It has been a long, long, long, year. I graduated from college at long last, got a job, quit that job, and somehow, amidst all of that, I finished modernizing the website. My good friend Phil Smith has moved on to follow his own writing projects (should be something amazing, I’m sure! I’ll […]
