Lego is releasing models for the Lord of the Rings. This is a combination of two of my favourite things, and is hence awesome! 🙂
There’s one thing that’s bothering me though. One of the panels in the Mines of Moria set is decorated with text written in the cirth…
Cool, no? Except that I can’t for the life of me figure out what it’s meant to say.
If my interpretation is correct, it appears to read ndigwbndio pdy eobo.
I have no idea what this means.
So, am I using the wrong mode? Is it written in Khuzdul, or Sindarin? Or maybe Maori or Danish? Or is it just decorative gibberish? I have absolutely no idea, and it’s going to drive me nuts until I figure it out.
Later: Bah! It’s not the Cirth, it’s standard Futhark and says “Diordie was here”. Bastards! ;D

Actually, we’ve gotten confirmation that it says “Djordje was here”– Djordje is reportedly one of the designers that was working on the LOTR theme.
Ah! I figured it might be the name of one of the designers. Thanks!
( The Futhark system has no ‘j’ so ‘i’ is usually used instead.)
