[Resources] Quenya

Quenya is an elvish language invented by J. R. R. Tolkien. Begun in 1910, he worked on it for the rest of his life. There are several online resources for this language (1, 2, to name a few).

The usefulness of the language for special place-names, character names (good guys and bad guys) or even evil magic items (a cool Elvish name is awesome but make sure it doesn't rhyme with a feminine hygiene product).

  1. Tolkien was more of a linguist than an author, I took a English class in college on him and according to many sources The simerilion, lord of the rings and hobbit were produced to give a history to the languages he was creating
