CE-EX-28.4: Okay, so we propose {Vorotemnar}[Voronutalė] and {Ilterendi}[Laterendi]. Let's see if Aiwendil does agree to this.

Just wanted to pop in and say I'm reading through the latest discussion and writing some comments. Sorry, once again, for my tardiness. I hope to be able to get on with this next week.

Just popping in to say that there's a lot of new material to consider for this chapter from the Nature of Middle-earth book which was published last month. I wanted to ask everyone's opinions: should we hold off on any additions/changes stemming from that book until we've all come to an agreement on what we have so far? I feel like we should settle our central debates before introducing more, but if we think it's fine I could propose some inclusions and changes based on the new material.

Aiwendil, what do you think about ArcusCalions question?

I have learned in some older cases that to hold any impulse for posting in this project back has always done more harm than good. But that is only my oppinion.

Yeah, I expect we're going to have some interesting discussions about a lot of the new material, and I don't see much point in holding those back. (As a matter of fact, reading and thinking about that book have already rather distracted me from the response I was working on here, for which I apologize!)

My personal opinion at this point is that the large corpus of new material from part I of that book is, in the end, not actually going to have a huge impact on the project, but naturally I expect rather a vigorous debate on that subject! At any rate, I do still intend to lay out my thoughts on the latest proposal here, but I don't see any reason that couldn't happen in parallel with the other discussion.

Hi there. I would propose to try in another thread the making of a new Yenonotie with the additions of NoME if they can be taken into account. And then try to incorporate them into the text. In order to be as faithful as possible to the narrative sequence.

Gondowe, I actually have made a draft of a 'Yenonotie' style work combining several of the 'time' related texts from NoME and HoME. I can post that at some point, but it was not actually as difficult as might be thought once a thorough understanding of the texts, their history, and the applications to the legendarium are considered.

gondowe 10-13-2021 08:07 AM

Hi Arcus. I also started a Yenonotie but I see that adapting to the new situation is very difficult. Seeing that Aiwendil opened a new thread about this we talked there.
