My real name is Jacob, but Eldorion is the main pseudonym I go by in the online Tolkien community. Most people shorten it to Eldo. I first used this name on LotRPlaza.com – a Lord of the Rings discussion forum and all around cool site. I live in Maryland in the United States and graduated from university in May 2013. I can be dangerously obsessive about The Lord of the Rings, but sometimes this comes out more than others. Check out my personal page!
Which Eldorion am I?
I don’t know exactly how many people go by the name Eldorion on the Internet, but I know of several that aren’t me. I have joined numerous Tolkien websites under this name, but I do not post as prolifically now as I did a few years ago. The following sites are the ones where I am or have been the most active.
- Forumshire: The Hobbit Movie Forum
- The Lord of the Rings Fanatics Plaza
- TheOneRing.net (TORn)
- Tolkien Gateway
These days, I can most often be found on Forumshire, where I served as owner and administrator from early 2011 to early 2016.
About this site
While WordPress is of course primarily a blogging service, I’ve used it to build more of a traditional website with static pages. I originally made this site in 2009 as a permanent home for my essays about Purism, but it grew considerably in the years that followed. However, it has been a long time since I posted regular updates here and in 2016 I essentially transitioned this site into an archive while posting more expansive Lore essays on my new blog Nolondil.
