Welcome to Formenos, fortress of Fëanor, mightiest of the Eldar...

...which sadly, I am not.

Anyway, this is my website, predominantly about my hobbies, which in my vanity I think might be of interest to other people. Other than the most important part of living, i.e.: family, some of the most important things in my life, in no particular order, are: Karate; role-playing games; science and fantasy & science fiction literature. All accessible from the menu above. Enjoy.

Why Formenos?

Because Formenos is the citadel built by the greatest Eldar, by any measure, ever to exist within the bounds of Eä. I am talking, of course, of Fëanor. Those of you who take an alternate view, that is to say, that there was another Eldar greater than Fëanor, you are wrong. Period! You can quibble and jabber as much as you like.  Fëanor he was the greatest at almost everything. Just accept it! After all Tolkien should know and here's what he wrote about this great Eldar:


Chapter 11 - Of the Sun and Moon and the Hiding of Valinor
...For Fëanor was made the mightiest in all parts of body and mind,

in valour, in endurance, in beauty, in understanding, in skill,

in strength and in subtlety alike, of all the Children of Ilúvatar...

Now, he had a temper, for sure, but no one is perfect, right. But there can be no debate. Fëanor was the greatest and most powerful of all the Children of Ilúvatar that ever lived.

Aside from the fact that is may not be how you might see Formenos, let's just say it is, then the smart alec's among you might spot the error in the above image, if Fëanor was is residence anyway.
