The Philippine Tolkien Society
The Philippine Tolkien Society (TPTS) is an exclusive organization of Filipinos who collect, admire, read and discuss all works of popular British philologist and author John Ronald Reuel Tolkien.
All TPTS members are fond of Tolkien's popular Lord of the Rings series, set in what Tolkien calls "Middle-earth." Their interests mainly involve science fiction and fantasy books, products, films, and Middle-earth collectibles.
TPTS members include filmmakers, artists, toy collectors, I.T. professionals, costume makers and writers. They actively participate in various local and international sci-fi and fantasy events and conventions.
They hold monthly meetings called “Moots” and have a sister group called the Philippine Order Of Narnians (tPON).
Activities and Organizations
This group is a part of the New World Alliance (NWA), a prestigious league of various fantasy and science fiction fan organizations in the Philippines. It often takes part in CosPlays, costume events sponsored by the NWA. TPTS regularly attends the Philippine Science Fiction And Fantasy Convention which is held every year.
