Welcome to Role-Playing with Lore

This forum has been made to provide the Plaza with a dedicated place to ask questions about the Lore of Middle-earth for Role-playing purposes.

How long does it take an Elf to grow up? What kind of trees grow in Ithilien? Most such questions should have direct support from the text or at least be supported conjectures, providing a venue where those who want to be more accurate to Tolkien can find the information they need to achieve their aim.
For questions related to the films, please go to the Movies Forum and ask your question there; someone will be happy to help you.


Please heed the words and guidance of Plaza's dedicated Lore Steward team (especially if they are telling you to cut it out).


A few guidelines should help things go smoothly and keep things accurate:

When answering questions, please back it up with quotes and citations (book & chapter, or letter number), so others can go check your statements.
When asking, wait long enough for people to answer and for people to quibble with the answers.
If you have a quibble that bears on the question, post it! But if it's going to be a tangent, open a thread in one of the Lore Fora and link back to the original thread.
Furthermore, as always, rudeness and flaming are not tolerated. Should you feel that you have suffered these, please contact an admin.
Spam and adverts are not tolerated here. Please report any you see in the Spam Reports thread.
