A rich dwarven welcome to The Dwarrow Scholar!
Through this blog I hope to serve all those with a keen interest in the dwarves of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works. Both Lotro dwarven RP-ers as those searching for more information on the bearded mountain dwellers will surely welcome the regular articles, pictures and videos published by The Dwarrow Scholar.
The Dwarrow Scholar, a fanatic Tolkien fan with a passion… nay… a truly insane obsession with dwarves.
An obsession I gladly wish to share with all of you!
Roy 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 ipods, 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 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 dwarven treasures on the net he’s enjoying time with his wife and son, re-reading his tormented Tolkien paperbacks, watching a good movie or playing a game of Lotro on Laurelin as Kandral Strongbeard.
