Try posting your fanfic on a British or American LoTR fansite. Those are the true fans.

Nah language does not affect understanding, they also read the English version.

So I plan to let Durge replace the Witch King's place after the Witch King was killed by Eowyn, let Obi Wan, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli fight him in the battle of the black gate.

It's not about language, it's about nationality. You yourself are Chinese, right? I expect them to think in a manner similar to you. I am willing to bet that most of them only care about the looks of an actress and not the acting, like you.

I don't like this sentiment at all. Who are you to say who is a true fan and who is not?

The truth of one's appreciation for a story is commensurate with the ferocity with which one assaults those who disagree with one's perspective.

In case it's not clear, when I say things like this I'm not actually being serious.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

Not at all, they like the movies but also read UT and The Silmarillion well. I don't like The Silmarillion for the reason I said before, but I do like the trilogy a lot.

I really think it's hard to give so many characters things to do since I don't want to let SW characters take away LotR characters' achievement. So Obi Wan did little other than use Battle Meditation to enhance the morale. I compared the book and the movies a lot these days, in the book Legolas really got little achievement and characterization, he's just Aragorn's elf sidekick that's all, even Gimli has more presence since his dialogue is funny.

Well the full version of the word fan is fanatic, so liking it very much goes without saying.

Also about love story, I think the trilogy's love story is a bit vague, so Tolkien have to explain Aragorn and :raptor::raptor::raptor::raptor::raptor:'s love story in the Appendix. Eowyn and Faramir is also a bit rushed. Not sure how to expand it.

LotR isn't a lovestory, it doesn't have to be expanded upon because it isn't that major.

The Silmarillion did a better job on romance and overall characterization, but I don't like the value of almost all characters are decided by bloodline and ancestry, no more underdog save the world.

People like Slowpoke give me the impression that Chinese LotR fans are all like him, considering that they liked his disgusting SW-LoTR fanfic.

Okay I figured I should let you guys know what's going down. Cantus asked me a while ago to think on some stuff to keep the fan-fiction portion of this community active and busy. I've managed to get two main ideas and I would like people to say which they would prefer and how interested they are in the idea.

The first idea is to have our own Scrolls of Lore short-story contest, in the same theme as Blizzard's ten leader stories. It would be the same format only with a different theme, perhaps ten famous Warcraft villains or notable heroes. Something along those lines. Then there would be some prize at the end of it and we would all judge which story we thought was the best. But we would need about ten people who would be interested in participating first.

The second idea is to brainstorm our own original fantasy universe. Take ideas from everyone and see if we can craft our story that is interesting with compelling characters and situations. This idea would be a lot more casual than the first with a heavy group-focus, with people posting ideas as soon they think of them with the rest of us deciding how appropriate they are. Hopefully by the end of the process we would have some semblance of an interesting RPG world.

So let me know what you guys think, how many would be interested in participating or even just if you have an entirely new idea you would like to propose. Thanks for reading and I hope to hear back from you.

Well, the War for Lordaeron is quite huge, But a shortstory-thing will be very nice!

I prefer the latter, if for no other reason that I would be able to participate : a short story is far too long for me to write, I'm afraid.But the two ideas are very interesting.

There are two different Lordaeron war RPGs going on in these forums, and nobody wants to play a game of Diplomacy?
