I'm Christopher, I come from Germany and am a student of German and
French literature and linguistics at the University of Giessen.
(Hope that translation was right - feel free to correct me)
I read the Hobbit and then LotR back when I was 10, the Silmarillion
following shortly afterwards, as well as the MERP role-playing game
when I was 13. Since some months, I try to dive into the secrets of
the Tengwar and 'the language', Quenya. I have written a german mode
for them, 'cause the existing modes I saw in the web didn't suit me
and I wanted a stronger dependance on the Quenya mode. So, here it
is, as a gift of arrival in this group, sort of. :-)
