Welcome to Badshah. I guess my question to you is whether there is a good shah?

Very good question, Voronwë! And Badshah, you're very welcome. I hope you'll join the conversation!

It means High King or Master King, V. Higher than just a "shah".

Welcome Badshah!

I just think it's cool someone here could interpret the name. <hugs Inanna>

A big welcome to Finarphin. I particularly appreciate the old school spelling of the name. I hope that you will jump in and share your wisdom.

Thank you for the welcome. I don't see a thread for self-introductions, so I would like to introduce myself a bit here, if I may. I am originally from California [love those giant Sequoias!], which I consider to be my native land (rather than the USA) but I have been living in Japan for a number of years now. I grew up in a family heavily into Tolkien. What brought me to this forum is the fact that my primary way of enjoying the works of JRRT is by reading and re-reading various passages from HoME and dreaming of what a "Reconstructed" Silmarillion might be like. I have not, however, read Arda Reconstructed as of yet. And although I would like to read it, I'm afraid that I suspect I might disagree with some of its conclusions even if I indeed greatly sympathize with the aspiration and both respect and admire the toil that went into the work.

One further thing that I like about this forum: I appreciate the fact that courtesy is a requirement for interactions here. However, I arrive to find that many of the really interesting discussions in which I would perhaps have something to say have been mostly inactive for quite some time. On the other hand, there are discussions of contemporary events that I might be able to enter. It greatly dismays me that a singularly discourteous and morally bankrupt individual who may perhaps even be delusional has been invested with the highest office of the United States and I worry that he may end up leading the whole world even quicker towards self-destruction than it already seemed to be headed. Actually, my views on the predicament of the world correspond rather closely with those of the distinguished Prof. Jared Diamond.

Again, thank you for the welcome. :toast:

Good to meet you, Turumarth. While most of the active posters here are in America, I'm also outside the USA, in Australia.

Mae govannen, Turumarth! I am very happy that you have found your way to our little community. I hope that you get a chance to read Arda Reconstructed at some point, but even before then, I would love to hear your thoughts about what a reconstructed Silmarillion might look like. You should also feel free to comment in any thread of interest to you, no matter how old the discussion is. I for one would be very interested in your thoughts about any of them, particularly the Tolkien related discussion. I am also very glad that you value courtesy; in these dark times we need all of the courtesy and respect that all people of good heart can generate.

I look forward to getting to know you more in the future!
