In the Dwarrow Scholar Library you will find dictionaries, articles, support documents, translations tools and plugins, which are ALL available absolutely FREE. The aim of this library is to provide you with all the information you would ever need regarding the dwarves of J.R.R. Tolkien. Whether you are looking for information about their language, their culture or their customs, you've come to the right place.

These "Support Documents" are materials that expand on a specific topic. They are listed in the order in which I started to work on them. Though these documents are aimed to provide further information to support the lessons provided on this site, they are not lessons themselves.
* These files are made available for free download through Dropbox, you do NOT require a Dropbox account to download these files.
* Important Note on File Sizes: The two "Full" dictionaries linked here are very large .PDF files (over 100MB each) and as such might be very challenging to work with for some computers. For this reason "Compressed" versions of these have been made available (4 pages per page), that should make searching for content easier and faster. If you however are having challenges using these versions it is recommended to use the translation tool in MS Excel (see below).
The Neo-Khuzdul Translation Tool (in MS Excel) allows the user to translate lines from English into Neo-Khuzdul, including phonetic and cirth script. Further info on this tool can be found HERE.
Document related to Neo-Khuzdul are in a blue/red box, where non-language related documents are in a green/yellow box. New documents have been marked with a tiny red band in the corner. Documents in a white box are currently being worked on (do not have an active link).

2) Drop the unzipped “Simbo” folder in your Lord of the Rings Online “plugins” folder. In case you already have a plugin by Simbo (which you really should have to be honest), you’ll have to drop the contents of it into the already existing Simbo folder.
Annals of the Dwarves
Khuzdul is the language of the Dwarves in J.R.R. Tolkien's legendarium set in Middle-earth.
For these Neo-khuzdul documents both the original Tolkien material, David Salo's Neo-Khuzdul and Khuzdul used in SSG's LoTRO have been used.
This is my personal interpretation of Tolkien's dwarvish language, I do not claim this content to be canon.
This document is an interpretation of Tolkien's work and any Khuzdul-related material, all rights are reserved for their proper owners.
Any reference to The Lord of the Rings Online or any other brand name is not meant to claim ownership of material.
