Some interesting places around the internet. Cliché, I know. And I don't care what you think. These are some places I think you will enjoy. Links will open in a new window (or tab), unless otherwise noted.

Links in the Miscellaneous category: When I get links three links or more in a related category, I will add the category to this page, at the bottom, but above Miscellaneous.

Is a link not working, gone, or otherwise broken? E-mail me with the title of the link and I will check it: icemephit | @ |



Glǽmscribe – The Tolkien language transcriber
From the about page: "More than a classical tengwar transcriber, Glǽmscribe is a generic transcription engine, the behaviour of which is driven by mode files written in a custom programming language. A mode in Tolkien’s parlance refers to a specific system assigning phonetic values to the writing signs. For Glǽmscribe, it is a system defined by a set of rules describing relations between input (Latin letters and diacritics) and output (Tolkienian writing signs)."

I don't know how accurate this is, however, you are welcome to visit.

Eldamo : Search
From the page: "This search mixes words from various periods of Tolkien’s life, as well as neologisms invented by fans."

A tengwar transcriber. It takes something written in the Roman alphabet (and possibly other languages) and converts it into the tengwar writing system. It does not translate.
