Erutulco, núrolya!

Aiya, meldonyar!

I’m Erutulco Eruntano, and I have been honored with a position in Quenya101 Language Institute. Though I made some contributions before, now I’ve been given the chance of helping more actively in task of spreading the awesomeness of Quenya to every corner of Arda.

My encounter with Professor Tolkien was at the age of 12, through his most popular masterpiece “The Lord of the Rings”. Since then I started to delve deeper and deeper in his whole mythos. Now I count 22 years of life, and this passion has done nothing but increase. Needless to say, Quenya played a primary role in this process: in 2009 (age 19), I stumbled into Helge Fauskanger’s Quenya Course. I instantly began to study it, though very slowly due to life’s other obligations.

A little before finishing the Course, I found Erunno on Twitter, and he helped immensely in the task. And when, afterwards, he opened this site, I became an avid reader. Since then I’m up to perfecting knowledge, translating, and helping others to learn Quenya.

Finally, for the curious ones, here’s some information about me:

  • Age: 22 years old
  • Studies: currently studying Computer Engineering
  • Country: Uruguay
  • Languages: Spanish (mother-tongue), English, Latin (though a bit rusty lately), and Quenya.

My most notorious previous contributions to Quenya101 are these two: Tenwar Quenya Quick Guide & A Varda! Elentári!. Also I’ve been awarded with the title “I roquen taraso!” and a Quenya101 t-shirt for solving a challenge here.

Great, now you know me! But how do you contact me? I’m in a bunch of social networks, and on email. These are the most effective means of reaching me:

Twitter: @joaquingatica | Google+: link | Email: erutulco@quenya101.com

Do not hesitate to get in touch at any moment. I check this networks very frequently, and I’ll be pleased to help anyone anytime. We are here with that purpose. As the title states: Erutulco, your servant!

Enter Ondo Carniliono

Aiya ilyen!

My name’s Ondo Carniliono and I’m a new writer here in Quenya101. You may know me for some posts by our friend Erunno, like “All that is gold does not glitter”, “Bard’s song” and, I would say this is the most famous of them all, “Soft kitty”. 

I’ve started studying Quenya in October 2010, and on my first comments of it on Twitter I found the @Quenya101 guy. With his help, before the end of the year I was already translating parts of some lyrics into Quenya and I still remember my first translation was “When life leaves us blind, love keeps us kind” by Linkin Park (Song: The Messenger).

But… who am I anyway? I’m a 17 year old Gondorian, studying to be a physicist, I speak Portuguese, English, Spanish and, of course, Quenya and I live in Brazil. You can find me on twitter (@_Ondo) or you can email me (ondo@quenya101.com), so, if you need any help, got any comments or anything, hit me up there!

See you later guys! Namárië!

Pretty cool the trick, huh?

But…wait…don’t despair if you can’t read Tengwar alphabet yet…this is just an Easter Egg of Quenya101 and with it, I’d like to propose a challenge here (just like old times).

So…it`s not an easy task to get this Easter Egg, I know…but if you do, take a picture of you and your computer screen proving the deed!
