A young (you think) Ent detaches himself from the crowd and takes you aside. 'I am called Hastybough,' says the Ent. 'You will find I can speak more at your pace. Treebeard tells me you wish to join the Entmoot. Once you get to know the good Ents involved, I believe you will discover the Entmoot to be quite an exciting place. I will take this opportunity to introduce you to the Moot's more prominent members...'

Experiences at Entmoot: I've never been at a board before with both such deep and such pointless discussions combined! (religious discussions vs. The Anything post)I had a lot of fun being the Diet Caffeine-Free Pepsi villain in the nameless thread. >:-j. Also, as some may note, I tried to hide my other identity at first by frequently using the letter "z" when I posted combined with strange grammar. I stopped doing this after a while, and was inevitably discovered.
