This May, a new theme is coming to the stores - and the theme is Money. Writing or drawing for it is completely free!

Monetary system in Middle-earth is something we don't know much about. We know, for example, that Bill Ferny wanted twelve silver pennies for his pony, which was three times its value, and there are some other mentions of coins, but not much more than that. There are many interesting question about currency of different races and cultures, and its origin and value, but we would like this to be more personal than an academic discussion.

Money is an important part of our lives. Sometimes we wish it wouldn't be so, but the world's economy is based on it, and we can't escape it. We have to earn it and spend it, save it, worry about it... Do you think that Tolkien's heroes have the same worries, at least at some point in their life? How does a lonely ranger make money, so he can stay a night at the inn and buy some provisions? And whet about when he becomes a king and suddenly has to care for the economics of the whole kingdom? Where does the wealth of Elves come from, and does Legolas get pocket money from his father?

And the winners are:

Ada’s Begetting Day Gift by Horsegirl
A Sudden Sense of Liberty by Telemachus 3rd place
Currency of Heroes by Shire Rose
Fountain of Hope by Cassie Hughes
Govon Hood and his Merry Band by Wynja2007 3rd place
The Bride Price by Sian22 1st place
The Elf Preservation Society by Palanotar
The Wealth of my People by ElfofMirkwood1379
Wealth and Want by Linda Hoyland 2nd place
Worth more than any gold coin by Kiara Kay

Happy reading and congratulations to the winners!

Your Teitho-moderator,
Mirach
