Reading these posts makes me understand why I like Dagorhir. To me, it's not a game. It's a lifestyle. Dagorhir is a veritable microcosm, fully functioning and thriving.
Two years ago, when my two fellow friends discovered Dagorhir, you'd think we discovered the meaning of life. It took us about a year before any Dag-Legal weapons were produced, and another year before we had our first practice with several people. Now, nearly four and a half months after forming a Dur Dagnir, a unit of Anvard, the game has become more to me than anything I've ever known. My interests are not limited to combat, they include all-day-role paying events, camp outs, foam smithing sessions, etc. I also have a great interest in film making, and I have a couple scripted movies, planned and ready to be shot. While I'm only 15, I think I've begun to comprehend what Dagorhir is truly about.
My point in this message is simple: Dagorhir is a community, people like you and me, sharing a same passion. Anything you do to help the unit will only help you. The cliche "You reap what you sow" demonstrates this perfectly. In order to get anything out of the game, physically, mentally and socially, you must first put effort into it.
Finally, to those who started the game, and those who keep it going, you all have my eternal and undying thanks. To those who have yet to learn this lesson or understand what I'm saying: do not lose faith. Your time will come.
Wishing everyone a joyful and healthy new year,
Your friend and fellow fighter,
Turgon Evenstar, Warrior of the Light, High Lord of Dûr Dagnir.
