I had the idea to work in Olorin into this season, but ended up just imagining healers praying to Nienna, Irmo, and Estë, ... and Olorin. Mar 4, 2019

        Yeah that’s better, thanks! My English is a bit simple sometimes, since it’s not my first language.

        To help nail it down, I would consider pleas to the Valar to be invoking, but pleas to Illuvatar to be praying.

        But if the terms match the corresponding Swedish terms at all, praying is a broader term. In Christianity, the term invoking seems to be used in various ways depending on what kind of Christian you are (at least Catholics or Protestants). Well, anyway, it doesn't matter, you're right.

      Boring complaint: Again problems with the Webinar on the phone. Really limits my participation....

        It also does not work on Firefox or Chrome. HOW do you use GoToWebinar? I have used it fine on Firefox with webinars from other presenters.

        I found the webinar ID now on the computer webinar so I could type it into the phone app and that worked! So it was a dysfunctional link.

        Faelivrin you register on the site and receive a link on the mail. Then you need to download the GoTo app/program.

        Faelivrin knows how to move posts across sub forums; I got into an argument about Amras getting KIA in the Second Kinslaying and her next reply was in the Feanorean Storylines, with the post before that attached.

        Well, actually the only thing I did was to quote your post, then copy that reply and paste it into a reply to a different thread. I don't have moderator permissions except in the Community Hearth and Creative Writing sections (don't know why I have those.)

        I just want *someone* to be there to discuss locations, because as of right now, the slides are just some photos without any commentary, so...I could see that being confusing for the Hosts to go through. Like, "I'm looking at mountains, I think?"

      Late thought about the palantiri: Since most of the stones were with the Teleri and the Noldor had just killed a lot of them ->

        -> and stolen their precious ships, it would maybe be a good move by Fëanor to not bring any palantir along, or the Teleri would be able to track them more easily. (Of course, the route of the Noldor was not a hard guess anyway.)

        Palantiri are scrying devices in the hands of someone who knows how to use them, right? So I think they can track people who don't have a palantir of their own.

        It was. And especially you and Nick and everybody who worked on scripts did a really good job. My wish for next season is that we put more work on season outlining. We ended up in a good place but it was after some unnecessary struggle back and forth.

    My real name is Håkan, but it wasn't accepted as username. So I chose the Norwegian version of the name. It's close enough. Also, I have Norwegian ancestors.
    I found the Simarillion Seminar on iTunes a couple of years ago. Loved it! Then I began to listen to Riddles in the dark.
