Down the rabbit hole...
May I ask what the topic is? Or hasn't it been decided yet? If it has, then please tell me or PM me as I certainly need all the time I can get to study up!

Usually the topic is announced just before every debate.One of the teams picks up one of the sides and posts its opening posts.Then the debate begins.It lasts exactly one week and then the judges have to post their opinions.
You can read this thread about the rules of the Tournament:

http://www.thetolkienforum.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=12102


The same rules(with some very little changes )will be used.
As you probably know the coming debates will be part of our preparation for the next debating Tournament.
You can also read some of the debates(I recommend you the one between The Guild of Tolkienology and The Guild of Ost-in-Edhil-magnificent debate!!-

When is the debating starting?
I have to admit that I'm not sure. But since the other team already has all his members, they are only waiting for us. So as soon as a fourth member appears, we'll probably start. Oh, and we have to decide which members will be exchanged (from our Guild I mean).

Draug, interested?:)

:D Nobody knows it...except ithrynloin.;)

The topic is announced just before the debate, actually it is announced and the debate starts.:)
I think that you should participate, everybody learns, right?;)
If you find out later that you really cannot say anything at all, then you can stay asaid and watch in the first debate. After all, that is what the preparation debates are for - to gain experience.:)And it is going to be a friendly debate, so dopn't worry.;)
So, what do you say?:)

The debate will be an educational one, friendly. We have two teams, four members. Two of the Tolkienologists 'become' Eruhini for this debate; two of the Eruhini 'become' Tolkienologists. The idea is to gather experience and different style of debating; to see others' methods towards debating; strategies. When the debate is over, members return to their Guilds and tell their co-guildmembers what they have learned from the other team. Thus we exchange experience, tactics and prepare for the next years Debating Tournament.
More or less, that's it.:)
