Re: Valinor scene in Opensim

Hi - I have the basic server running now. It is only a small island for now, even though I have the landscape also set based on that map from the Atlas. But if you are interested in trying out, pm or mail me and I'll give you the login details ... I first thought to put them here, but I think this b...

Re: Valinor scene in Opensim

thanks Arodring! I am currently rebuilding the overall landscape because it turned out that that map that you can see above is not doing justice to what's in the books. Aikanar attended me to that fact, and reminded me of the map of Valinor that's in the Atlas of Middle Earth which *is* true to the ...

Valinor scene in Opensim

Suilad, the Blender Valinor scene project has stalled sometime ago. I could not get past "getting the mountains right" and after I had let it sink in for some time I realised that I was trying to do something that might prove to be very hard. Blender is not really designed to create such large scene...

Re: Sindarin poems

here's a link to a recording I just made of the whole thing. Nothing fancy, just reading it aloud.
Athariel tells about Tinúviel  ;D

LOL it just occurred to me that _aegais_ sounds almost identical to English Hi Guys  8) ::)

Re: Sindarin poems

Glassen, Arodring! I have been in a sort of translating spree I think ... strange thing is that it is a skill that I cannot really describe. I've been working for one whole day and another half to make the last 6 verses. I can only describe it in metaphorical terms like 'kneading' where the verses a...

Re: Sindarin poems

And another tweak suggested ...

Na dail dîn, nestas aphadol

Linnol am nadhras úbrestol

Re: Sindarin poems

Faster, kids, faster!  ;D * 6th verse - When winter passed, she came again, And her song released the sudden spring, Like rising lark, and falling rain, And melting water bubbling. He saw the elven-flowers spring About her feet, and healed again He longed by her to dance and sing Upon the grass untr...

Re: Sindarin poems

This may throw a spanner in the works.  ::) But as I read JRRT's English version, I thought it was Beren shivering, not the stars. I realize the punctuation and pronoun usage don't make it out that way, but that's still the way I read it it. (I still wouldn't choose "shuddering", but if my interpre...

Re: Sindarin poems

heyyyy that is cool!!! Thanks!
I've looked wide and far for something like "tremble" or "quiver" indeed, but this document I did not see. Where did you get that from?

Re: Sindarin poems

Ah thanks!
_Gir-_ which is used here, however, rather means 'to shudder' ie. the very physical meaning.  I consider it both too strong and too literal in meaning to use in this context - to apply it to stars.
I really like any suggestions though! The poplar one was very good.

Re: Sindarin poems

next verse in yella - as the changes :) ----- original by Tolkien ---- The leaves were long, the grass was green, The hemlock-umbels tall and fair, And in the glade a light was seen Of stars in shadow shimmering. Tinuviel was dancing there To music of a pipe unseen, And light of stars was in her hai...
