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

      Unless another couple or more nominations for Lúthien come in, we won’t break the record of nine nominees for a role this season.

        So do we want to break the record? There’s a chance to break it with Beren and Turin.

        I don't think there's any real need to, just in order to break the record. But nominations are still open. If anyone wants to make a few more suitable suggestions, I'd say go for it.

        I wasn’t suggesting that we had to break the record. I just made an observation for fun - but it also tells us something about the casting process in different seasons.

      So I believe the only characters with no casting nominations are Eldalotë and Amarië. I won't do them, since I'm going on vacation.

      I know people will engage more in casting closer to deadline, but we've only 12 days left!

        Another thing is, theoretically I do have actors and actresses lined up for most of these roles but for a lot of them there's no real compelling rationale beyond "this face more or less works for what I was thinking". So technically I can get some nominations up there, but there wouldn't really be any strong reasoning, per se... :-/

        Don’t worry about the reasoning. If you look at my nominations you will notice a few marked “I think he/she would be great”....

        There’s nothing to be sorry for. Except that I’m off on vacation in three weeks (which is a good thing but makes it hard to participate). So that means Casting is even further down the road...

        Casting nominations will close on June 25th (tentatively).

        Is there a calendar/timeline anywhere? I guess that the 29th is a sets session. I don't know if the 22nd is a session, or if the 15th was. Does anyone know when the other topics will be discussed, or at least what order they will be discussed, and which already have been finished?

        Yeah, getting started on time is not this project's strong suit. Perhaps keeping in mind how much we probably need to get done, we can convince the hosts to act as time-efficient as possible. >.>

        That typically happens whenever I try to log in. I have to press the option for stay signed in to get in at all.

        Just a subtle reference to the casting of Lúthien, which is a bit difficult and interesting. It’s not a battle, so the hint went wrong, I guess Haha

      I nominated 27 people in the season 1 casting. In season 2, I nominated 39. But it looks like that was an exceptional year.

        Yes you definitely contributed with a number of important nominees. My point wasn’t really my elected nominees but that there were so many roles to fill last year.

        "Boldog" also sounds like a breed of dog in English. So for the bilingual, it's potentially "Happy, the bulldog".

    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.
