@Oak - oh do take photos! I'd love to see your herd. Sadly, I only have a back patio where I live now and a small slice of garden, but I have some small potted trees. I admit I'm jealous of your backyard - sounds so beautiful! I used to have a nice yard before I moved, but I'm glad you get to enjoy such beauty. The photo was of one of my favourite parks I used to frequent back in BC. In the spring, camas flowers cover the ground in purple! The bees liked it, too.

@Flame Fried Ent - purple is one of my favourite flower colors. (The other being yellow). And there's never too small a scale to start gardening! :) You can start a nice miniature garden on a balcony!

@Nienna - ooo I really like those!! I think the first is my favourite because the little flower evokes the notion of growing to me.

Thank you @Lailyn and @Nienna for your lovely banners.
I have to agree with Lailyn, that first one of Nienna's really captures the element of growing, so I will use that one for the first thread. If we get enough interest, I will come back and use the others you have both contributed for subsequent threads, as I like them all!

Thread will go up tomorrow :)

@Lailyn , I'll take your word for it! I also like some red flowers...favourites are poppies, lilacs, lavender. I"ll see what I can find here.

Mojo has a heart? I thought his had fossilized after so long away. :smiley17: :smiley17:

My heart has always, and will always, lie in the forests of Fangorn.

(Heck, I remember writing a Song Parody of Zeppelin's "All of My Love" for Fangorn once)

My heart will also always be in Fangorn. I have loved trees since I was but a little sapling. I was fascinated with particularly large trees that cast deep shade. There was just something soothing about the dappled shade.

@Mojo @Fairy Nuff @Oak @Flame Fried Ent !!!!!
Oh, so many old friends, warms my heart to read all of your names again!! Been a very long time indeed— shame to hear about the old Plaza, I’ve been trawling web archives and reading what I can find. I was 13 when I joined and I’m now 31, but not that much has changed :smiley8:

@Flame Fried Ent I sure did, I now look after the fluffier members of society, not so much the leafy ones!
@Oak yes I believe I was! A little pesky one!

Just as a side note, my IRL job doesn't really permit me the time or mental space to engage with anything on the regular. However, I'm a chronic lurker and it's really great to see everyone coming back :smiley8:

In this thread:

https://web.archive.org/web/20100104080 ... TID=236427

which was the very last post, I think, that I ever made on the old plaza, it says that Ducky spends most of his time in Fangorn these days, so my plan is to stick to that. I spent a good 18 months as a tree icon on the old plaza anyway, so Fangorn has always been quite near and dear to this wizard's heart. Cheers! :mrgreen:

You are always welcome in Fangorn @KingODuckingham!! Of course, we tried to persuade all the Wizards to come here into the canonically accurate Treegarth of Isengard and explore the dusty halls of old Orthanc but they decided on Rohan instead.....

But really, drop by as often as you like!

@KingODuckingham I think Orthanc is a bit overgrown with trees and even Hourns these days. No circle. I hope you don't mind that. :)

The Discord server is here -> https://discord.gg/65WHx5f (There was an OOME thread about it, I think)

I just signed up for Discord last week to join the Plaza server so I'm still learning the ropes of how it all works, but it's fun!

I did mention it to Region a few weeks back. He definitely took a look cause he replied delighting in the super nostalgia, but I guess he must not have enough time to join right now.

And we do welcome our Dwarven friends, particularly those who are friends with the famous axe-makers Fen Der, Iban Ez and Gib son of Lespaul.

Hi friENTs! Would anyone like to see a Fangorn free RP thread? We can stretch our imaginations a little and you could play Eagles in it if you would like that @Oak and @Dis! I saw you mention that a while back.

I'd love that @Lailorn! I've been meaning to write something for the Treegarth, but a Free RP would suit just as well.

On a similar topic, Taeth pointed out in the Character Development CoLP thread that we... Don't have a character thread. Obviously the ratio of discussion / game to RP threads is a little higher on the discussion end here in Fangorn than in other regions, but ought we make one?

Oh well maybe its better to stick with the Treegarth for now.

I say go for it @Androthelm! I did not realise we were the only ones without until I saw that. I have an Ent character floating around in my head who I need to flesh out a little bit and would like to start RPing once I do.

@Lailorn that's my position exactly -- I've always wanted to write as an ent, but never happened to get around to it. I'll make a thread momentarily.

EDIT: Done! @Mojo if you want to stick it in the OP for this thread as well it's here. Also, if anyone has a good header image please let me know, it's looking a little bare.

Geez, now I need to start thinking about characters and RP? Now I remember why I went so much into Lore on Old!Plaza.

I think I"ll need help on developing any character!

also, I'm sortakinda back? I've not been faithful in terms of posting much.

@Flame Fried Ent - don't feel obligated to. :smooch: but also happy to help if you want it. There's a Character Development Thread in CoLP but I don't know if its more than what you need or not. I have no in-depth plans for my Fangorn character.
