I just resurfaced the Hobbituk's wedding thread. I had forgotten how good it was back then. Sigh, well anyway what I wanted was to bring up the last page and specifically the last post.. as The Boss said, for quick reference. The last time Erinhue felt the way he is about to feel, well, all hell broke loose. :wink:

It's the middle of the night and I'm feelin' talkative... so I'll talk.

The Champion of the Light is something I started way way back in the days of The Lady LeGrace, Barad-dur and the whole Dark Tower thing (ah, those were the days). The Bard and The Berserker always were part of a triangle with the Champion being the third, combined entity. The long drawn out process has been pretty much developed in the course of this adventure, so........

Since this is the end of an era and SB has killed Dirk off ( regretfully) I suppose it is time I wrapped up this long simmering development. Time for the Champion of the Light to finally evolve. It's been so long I no longer remember where I was originally going with this, but I'm sure I can come up with something. I know that might be a bit far out but I do have Jon's permission for this. I told him all about it long ago and he let me keep the Bard ( and Agarak) as the sort of Marvel super hero he was always meant to be. And with the looks of this particular dragon, we need a hero. :twisted:

Figured I'd throw my two cents into the story, and a nice triple post here. I need the practice... at both. :twisted:

Yes, C-R, Dirk is well-and-truly dead. As I had hoped, his death and the release of Mauglar the MIghty have already begun to spark some life into this story. Now I can't wait to see y'all put an exclamation point on the thing! Look for a new character to be knocking at the door of a Guildhouse once ya'll get through the story and the well-deserved initiations that are upcoming. Incidentally, I'll be glad to play parts in those, perhaps even act as our intrepid founder Elbren and preside over the proceedings. But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
Rest In Peace, Dirk. 2002-2013

SB, I am sorry to see Dirk go so soon!!! :( Tempest will be devastated when she learns of it, but will remain under the hope that he is alive for the moment.

Thanks for leaving behind a monster for us to handle too. :nono: Whatever will we do? Erinhue, I hope you have some ideas that don't get any one else killed in the process. Because we can't lose another Mithril Knight!!!!!!

CR, how do you think your Eagle can fare against a dragon?

I'm not sure how Meneldor will do against the dragon, but I have some ideas. Oboy, why'd you have to have a flock of cold drakes as well? It's going to be a challenge, and no cavalry coming. John Wayne, where are you when I need you? :P

Finally back here...

Erinhue, I'm eagerly looking forward to see what you come up with! Please feel free to use my old elf if you feel necessary.

SB, I'm off to read your end. Wish it didn't have to come...part of why I wrote an elf instead of a man. But I'm looking forward to seeing who you come up with next!

Well, we're getting to the end...guess I better show up again, dust off these writing fingers, and participate!

Keep writing guys! I am yet another one who has crawled out of the woodwork and is keen to see how you wrap this up.

Moreover SB (and Bardy) have got me writing again, maybe even on TORC in a bit, and I suspect that is a good thing for this little soul of mine.

Also, I really want to know what SB's going to put in his 'epilogue' - hope it's worth waiting for.

[b]PARADOR!![/b] :yippie: Glad to see you again! And I'm already composing a song for Meneldor to sing over Dirk at his funeral when all the battle is done. My muse is singing to me now.

I was hoping to see the Argonath in your sig, Parador! Hopefully, it'll be back.

Wow!! So much has happened. I just dont know what to add to it.

I must admit I have mentioned to Guru that I would be willing to let Vana die as well in the destruction of the dragon if need be. Partly because I just dont have the desire or the drive to do RP anymore. I cant say I dont enjoy it but I dont seem to have any idea of how to continue with this for myself. I feel that my character has been in the way for some time and I dont want her to be a burden to anyone anymore.

:Q What's with this everyone wanting to kill off their character? Hmmm well I ain't killin' the bard anytime soon. Gotta think of a way out of this that don't get too fantastic. I've seen that but I don't wanna take advantage of Jon's good graces. I'll think of something soon as I kill off this flu bug. :wink:

Well, I admit I only resurrected Nin in the MK to give her a clean death and to be over with that RP character I created so long ago. I'm weary of her, she doesn't speak to me any more and I find her posts boring. In my personal story line all is in stage for some melodramatic dying scene. And I will just do that as soon as I can.

Collective character suicide anybody?

I hear ya C-R. I wouldn't like that much either, but it could make for a dynamight ending.

OK so lemme know who's for dying and I'll forget the rules and get fantastical. If the Mithril Knights are collectively going down, let's go out with a BANG :twisted: ...And I'm just the guy that can do it :wink:

Hmm...collective suicide...I'll pass on that one. Old Anorast may be making an insane move, but he's planning on being alive at the end.

As I told Vana, I believe in retirement for characters. I'm never a fan of closing doors on anything: I never know when I might want to reopen them. That said, as sad as I may be to see a character fall, I'll respect it and raise a glass in their honor. I just hope it's not too many glasses or I'll get too drunk...

I'm with Guru on this one. Why not have your character subjected to grevious wounds of mind and body and retire post-battle to live as a hermit to the end of their days. Or leave the Mithril Knights and run a pub in an out of the way place somewhere. Or retire from active service to go and raise funds for the order. There are lots of creative options out there. ;)

I went for one of the creative options first... have her wander off... and found I was not happy with it. Nin is a burden in the background of my mind - not good for creative moods....

But I would not mind starting the whole procedure over and join the MK again with a more fitting character for a warrior guild than a short sighted lightweight elf-murderer with a guilt complex.

I think much better when I can breathe. I write much better when I am not feeling like someone beat me with a bat but after all the talk I had to post something. Still not sure where I'm going with this but this is the right direction for starters I sure picked the wrong time to quit drinkin' vodka :twisted:

A great post, Hue! And I agree. I'm not going down. Not when I'm on the verge of becoming a full-fledged Mithril Knight. I want this so badly I can taste it. I'll have to think up a post now. I've got some plans for Meneldor.
