Want to be a Mithril Knight? Initiantion thread OOC

Postby erinhue » Fri Feb 21, 2014 9:29 pm

Upon the shores of the sea sits a building that looks lonely and weatherbeaten. But, in truth, inside lies the history of the Mithril Knights along with many reminders of the rich history of this Guild. Those that have petitioned to join the Guild have been summoned to this remote place in order that they might swear their allegiance and take the Oath that has lived through the Ages of Middle Earth...
With these words our guild master, Lord Elbren, began the first Initiation thread that established TORC’s Warrior Guild, The Mithril Knights. The guild has been a mainstay of the Prancing Pony ever since, even though our founder Lord Elbren went into the West long ago.


At this time the lists are open and the Mithril Knights will be accepting new recruits. This thread which will serve as the OOC for the new Initiation Thread would be the place to contact the guild if you would like to try out for membership.

I sure hope folks are still interested in taking another go at creating a bang a rang story here. Sure hope this will entice the old gang to give it one more once. The gate is opened, let's see who, if anyone is gonna come to the party

I'm in. Who's with me? :? 8)

Very good posts, Hue! I emailed several of the Knights I know, and hopefully they will respond. I left the two at Caras Galadon, but next they'll be over at Minas Anor for my next one. I tried to email Parador, but it bounced back for some reason.

And no, the Stone that Brondgast speaks of is NOT a palantir. We have seen the last of any to be found, as the stone of Osgiliath is forever lost, at least as far as any know. What it is...well that would be telling. Wait till the initiation scene and you will find out, hehehe. :twisted:

Well, I'm here, but in a bit of a bind, as I can't use Tempest since she's wandered off to the East. Maybe I'll write as another character---I can write for Elbren if you wish, or one of the stewards? I use to do that for her in our older threads when she wasn't around to fulfill her duties.....

Glad someone has an idea where this is going, cause I don't got a clue. With a little this and a bit of that thrown in I am basically following Elbren's pattern for an initiation and that's alls I gots...for right now =:)

That sounds WONDERFUL, Tempest! I'd love to see that happen. I found Claymore's email, at least what was by his signature, and contacted him. I hope he responds, as he's in on this as well. Djazi deserves it the wonderful way he's been participating.

I agree D'jazi was a great character I do hope Claymore can join us soon.

Tempest, my love, so good to see ya around. I have a feeling that this could be the opener for the new adventure. I'd love to have Tempest at the initiation (sure ya can't swing it?) if not yes be as steward or elbren if you like but then you should be leading things and not me but I don't really care long as you're in.

My thinking was that some news could come as the initiation draws to its end and we could all go off after it and or in search of you I can see that dance hall taking shape, and I am ready to dance :wink:

Yes, yes, that's what I was thinking too, Erinhue. I think news will come, and the new thread will begin with a search into the East for Tempest (and others). I already started writing a post awhile back that would introduce this, so I'll try to dig it up. I think you should go ahead with letting Erinhue run point for this initiation, but I'm going to write as Elbren, who has just returned from the East himself, which would explain why he isn't in charge of things again yet. :) How does that sound?

Hey guys
Sorry for falling of the face of the world again. ( I seem to have a tendency).
I got Cock-Robin's mail though so here I am.
I would love to get going again and I hope I can stay around for a bit longer this time
I am studying medicine though and am now doing what they call co-schappen in the Netherlands and what roughly matches the first years of a residency in the States, I think.
Free time is a precious precious commodity and mostly used for sleep :wink:
I have circles around my eyes that would put a panda to shame. :rofl:

Also Cock-Robin last time I checked I didn't go through a sex-change so I am still female despite the name and Djazi's gender :wink:
Though according to some male friends I am tomboy enough to be one of the guys :rofl:

No need to apology Cock-Robin.
You aren't the first, you probably won't be the last and I am certainly not insulted in any way.
If anything it makes me laugh.

For further notice Djazi can't write worth darn.
He learned to write at eighteen, using a stick and the dust of his and Baran's cell during what little free time they had left after training and before sundown.
Chicken scratch is putting it mildly. So Tempest, if you do something with those messages Djazi left with those innkeepers feel free to describe it with all the loving detail if you want. :wink:

Bang-a-Rang post Claymore darlin' yep we are gonna be taking this one East. :wink: I'm poking around with this to give folks a chance to put themselves on the page. Tempest's Elbren has still to enter the tale and some of the old gang might see the smoke signals and come nosing around. Hope so.

I been doing some nosing around myself checking on the threads I posted around the boards announcing the guild is accepting new members. We're getting views so the word is getting out I got a feelin' (wooo hooo) that it might just draw us a prospect or two. That would be grand.

All I can say to that is some people's "it was OK" is better than most could accomplish. BTW Love the way ya stuck in that line "farewell where ever you fare" Think I just might have heard that one before :D

I'm gonna be moving right along. I was really waiting for Tempest to get an initial post up, I knew it was coming. If anyone else shows up they can plug in to the story where ever we happen to be with it. Since everyone is on site I'll do maybe a welcome or something and move us right into the initiation. And yes after dinner we will be headed to the armory.

All you initiates be thinking on what sort of item you will chose and what sort of message you get from it. it can be anything you want. we got stuff in there from the First Age right on to the Early Fourth Age, the present in our tales, stuff from everyplace and every when in Middle Earth

I'll take you there one at a time. Once the door is shut, go for it. In terms of the two steps, the armoury and the tapestries the first should not take as long as the second. For the armoury you are there for a short time, although it can seem longer while you are in there if ya like. The tapestry can be a longer piece because we are looking for a story from you. Just a few hints but really it is your show so go as big or small as ya like 8)

Tempest darlin' if Elbren is not going to lead the initiation then I do think that at dinner he should say something like maybe it is the job of the Guild herald to do it or somethin like that there. :D

BTW I said the tapestry piece should be the longer one because while you are only in the armoury for a few minutes (on the outside of the door) When you are placed in front of your tapestry you will be told to spend the night there, so you got more time story wise with this one. Got it? Good :wink:

I dunno but I think I have an idea what you want for our Beorning. looking for something to make a suitable tapestry so you can go on with it if ya want. Let's see that's three tapestries... I better hit the Encyclopedia of Arda for some ideas myself :D

And yes I know this was a triple but I just hate to log off on an odd number =:)
