I just love that we have so many returning each year ( which should prove that this challenge may seem intimidating; however, it's so rewarding and provides such a sense of accomplishment you can't help but want to come back.

Can I just take a moment to say how badass I feel in my custom Team NaPo avatar? Courtesy of our very own Ahavati. She truly outdid herself this year.

A mashup of JohnnyBlaze, Aragorn, JohnnyDepp, and Viggo Mortensen - what more could you ask for?

And here's a great site to familiarize yourself with all the characters and people involved in the Tolkien mythology.

https://lotr.fandom.com/wiki/Main_Page

During a scene in The Two Towers in which Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli find the band of Uruk-hai that had captured Merry and Pippin in Amon Hen, Aragorn, in his sorrowful anger, kicks an Uruk helmet. In the filming of this, Viggo broke two of his toes.

https://lotr.fandom.com/wiki/Viggo_Mortensen

And then Viggo continued filming the scene until it was finished.

Badass, I tell you.

ďThe sound of her footsteps was like a stream falling gently downhill over cool stones in the quiet of night.Ē

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Good morning, DUPeeps!  It is only Day 6 of Registration and we have already surpassed the number of participants who completed NaPo 2019! However, the Dwarves are getting nervous in the company of all these fair haired immortals. Can't we all just get along without the teasing and beard tugging that Elves are notorious for?

Speaking of graceful stealth and mischievousness, PoetsRevenge ( aka Lady PRadriel of the Mothlorien Elves ) is back with a vengeance on Team NaPo for her 2nd year!

https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/poets/PoetsRevenge/

Captain of the Word Counting Department, PRadriel leaves no wyrm unturned. If you fall short of the minimum of 50 unique words required in your entries, you are going to hear about it. That haunting voice inside your head telling you to go for 70 or even 80 just to be safe? It's hers. You can bet your Arkenstones she's going to linger on your every word.  

PoetsRevenge has also been Instagrammed & Tweeted!

Still undecided about going on an adventure with us? You've got until Midnight of March 30th to join. That's plenty of time to have the snailmail armor polished and Elvish cloaks picked up from the drycleaners.

Our Fellowship so far!
