|Welcome to Tol Harndor
Tol Harndor ("Southland Island") is the official Australasian Smial (founded 1st May, 1996) of the Tolkien Society, which is incorporated in the United Kingdom.
The primary purpose of
Tol Harndor is to discuss, discover and delight in the works and life
of the late Professor John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1896-1973), through
the media of personal contact, postal mail, electronic mail, the
internet and any other suitable medium. The spirit of communication
will be one of friendly, liberal, easy going and obligation free
Secondary objectives include:
|Membership of Tol
Harndor is open to all interested people, whether or not a member of
The Tolkien Society. To join either contact Michael (below) or visit
the online discussion forum (click here).||
Membership is free of obligations and free of charges although certain articles produced as an adjunct to membership (eg. badges, certificates, memorabilia) will be charged for at cost.
Sadly due to fading interest, the last surviving 'active' member, the lonely webmaster, has closed the final page on Tol Harndor, just one year shy of its 20th birthday (even if the smial has been asleep for the past two years). This site will remain as a memorial to those years and anyone passing by who may be interested in the smial (perhaps one day someone else may like to revive it?), as well as anyone who may wish to browse the smial's journal, Tilkal.
For those with time on their hands and even more interest, the original mail-list archives are still available at google-groups.
If you really need to contact someone about the contents of this website or about Tol Handor, you can contact 'the last man standing' ... David Powell.
