Hello, I'm looking for the name of this font since I'm unable to find it anywhere... Can someone tell me?
It's the font he uses in the title...

hehe, some people have the weirdest hobby, copying fonts, that's even weirder then making maps :)

When I try to download Tolkien Regular, my virus checker (Kaspersky) has a fit....is it safe? (as someone else once asked about a ring).

Never downloaded from there myself, only found the page so I can't say one way or the other. I just went on the website linked and opened it up in Firefox > Firebug to see what font the guy had used then did a quick google search. Did a quick check on a few "advisor" sites and ffonts.net seems to to have a green light, so don't want to scaremonger anyone into not using the site if it is perfectly legit.

However, whenever in doubt, there are plenty of places to DL fonts from (I always use 1001freefonts as, like DJ, no .exe files to DL).

Looks like I'm late to the party. If you still need the font files, just PM me and I can send them to you.
