Zai dashunizu! (At your service!) – 2013 Updates

For those that might think I have forgotten about the affairs of the dwarves, fear not!

In fact, you could not be further from the truth! 🙂

As in the last weeks and months I’ve been tremendously busy updating all the neo-khuzdul documents (with brand new “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” material).

In addition The Hobbit movie has really kept me busy as I’ve received a ton of emails from friendly and eager enthusiast wanting to pick up the language of our dwarrow friends.

To all of you that have sent me emails… thank you so much.  And yes, I’ll soon publish all the new documents and you’ll get them in your mailbox in a neat little package – a grand thanks to David Salo (linguist on “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”), consider it a late Christmas gift 😉

– for those Khuzdul enthusiasts that haven’t yet “signed up”, no worries… just drop a reply on this post and I’ll add you to the list.

Finally, there is more from The Dwarrow Scholar still to come in the weeks and months ahead… including a massive project that will surely please all dwarven fanatics! (stay tuned!)

Now, for those that have a hard time waiting for all of this juicy content, I would like to point you in the direction of the monthly Khuzdul lessons I provide via LotRO (Laurelin Server), for dwarves only (obviously 😉  )

This week’s Khuzdul lesson will provide a new twist on our monthly lessons.

For the first time, we are going beyond our class room and will see to use Khuzdul while exploring the world around us.

It goes without saying that we must only use the ancient tongue of the seven fathers when dwarves are around, hence our exploration will focus on the dwarrow lands of Ered Luin.

Not only will we practice our Khuzdul, in addition we will learn new words, numbers and verbs by playing games while we explore the grand lands of the Blue Mountains.

All dwarves, of all kinships, are welcomed at the Gates of Thorin’s Hall, at 3 past the noon ((3PM LotRO Server time – 8PM UK Time – 9PM Central European Time)) on Friday 11th of January.

Those not on Laurelin, merely create yourself a dwarven character on the server and you’ll be most welcome.  In game questions can be directed to “Kandral”  –  See you there!

May your beard continue to grow longer!

About The Dwarrow Scholar

The Dwarrow Scholar first experienced the brilliance of Tolkien when he received a copy of The Hobbit from his uncle as a kid, reading it feverishly again and again. Some years on, when he got his very own walk-man (aye forget about tiny phones, this thing was a brick and played cassette tapes) he made his own little audiotape of The Hobbit, so he could listen to it on his bike on his way to school. Between reenacting the Battle of Five armies with 4 of his school friends (still feel sorry for the kid that had to be the Orc) and before the days of the internet, you would find Roy frequently in libraries trying to find all he could about Tolkien and his beloved dwarves. When Roy isn’t delving into Neo-Khuzdul or searching for lost dwarvish treasures on the net he’s enjoying time with his wife and son, re-reading his tormented Tolkien paperbacks, watching a good movie, learning new languages or playing a game of LoTRO or other dwarf related games.
