I apologize for complaining so much.<BR><BR>I understand that part of the fun of RPing is making it up as you go along, I just have no idea where we're going. Maybe I should just drop out and let the rest of you have a good time.<BR><BR>Right now I feel as though I have nothing at all to add.<BR>

Tarsa, I think that is okay, with this many people in the RP, there will be lots of times when some of us are going to have to be "along for the ride." <BR><BR>Before I write my next post, anyone have any notions about what they want us to be up against. SB is about to see something and I want to make sure it fits with your ideas.

Okay, I hate to sound stupid or anything, but,<BR>WHERE ARE WE GOING???????<BR>It's hard to give anything a direction or a definite response because I have no idea where we are going, and I cannot just decide for the group, because that would be evil, and it might cause in leading everyone in two separate directions, or something weird like that.

I believe Lothlorien was the last destination that was discussed. We are currently on a trail that runs parallel to the main road, heading Northbound on the West side of the Great River, Anduin.

Yea thats right we are currently following the Anduin upstream towards Lorien. We have the river to our right and abt 40 miles to the west (left) is the misty mountain ranges southern tip.<BR><BR><BR>DB

Well, one option would be to encounter some sort of trouble on the way to Lothlorien--it's supposed to be impossible to get into Lothlorien, isn't it?<BR><BR>Then, there's the evil force I wrote vaguely about, that was sucking men away never to return--we could explore that. Are people being enslaved? Spells casts over them? Perhaps that was who was attacking. Will "they" steal away some of our party?<BR><BR>Those are just some ideas.<BR>

Hey all! Please let Nurvilya do what she is requesting - I am dying to get some good ring action in - and it would give a good chance for Nurvilya to become less catty - much to the relief of you all, because perhaps she could get trapped somewhere, and something could happen to make her "eternally thankful" to her rescuer. I think it sounds like a good plan, but it's all up to you... <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> This is getting good!<BR>Thanks!<BR><BR>~*Nurvilya*~

We didn't polish off the baddies just yet. It was just a feint on their part a quick raid. You can bet they'll bet back again.<BR><BR>

Oh good <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Go for it Nurvilya. If you need rescuing I wouldn't mind a bit of action (if I can beat SB to it! Or we could even work together if we make it on to the boards at the same time and if the internet is any faster than it's been tonight!). I couldn't think how my Water Ring could be useful at this stage, although I feel sure I can work it in somewhere.<BR><BR>I'll be back to kick some Warg *rse tomorrow evening (alas, 'tis bedtime for me!)<BR><BR>

I think your water ring, although I don't know how it works, could somehow get us across the river? maybe? Nurvilya, you could post as to the use of your ring. Then Leoba uses hers so we can escape across the river. <BR><BR>It sounds like Nurvilya should post next. To tell us about her plan to create a diversion. Then Leoba about the plans to use her ring. Everyone should chime in regarding destination. Then, once Darin settles the destination question, Nurvilya and Leoba do the **RING ACTION** thing. Sound good? (notice I didn't say I was going to post anytime soon.)

Leoba, I think the Lady would be really interested in checking out your ring, and the only way she can do that is by letting you into Lorien...and don't worry, if need be, I'll cook up a relation somehow...you know, all those elves are related to one another...like being from Kentucky or something.<BR><BR><snark, snark><BR>

Postby Silver_Magiccraft » Tue Feb 26, 2002 7:24 pm

OK i should have posted here first.My bad. This is my character: <BR><BR><b>Name:</b>Silver Magiccraft<BR><b>Age:</b>1900<BR><b>Home Realm:</b>Tancu<BR><b>Weapons:</b>Silver is a weapons master, though she favors thowing daggers, twin blades, and the longbow. <BR> Her daggers are numbered 1-38 and are normally hidden about her body. She even sleeps with them on. They seem, at first glance, very plain, but in truth they are made of methril, platnium and steel.(as are her longbow and twin blades) They are only an inch in width and are thiner than any other known weapon, due to large amounts of magic poured into them in they're smithing. The hilts have an intracit pateren seemingly 'woven' into them. There is writing on the blades, twards the tip, in Mix.(the langage of Silver's race (the Mix)) There are many notches in each blade, for the number of assinations(sp) each blade has completed.<BR> Her twin blades are exactly the same as the daggers in design, except without the assins marks. And of course the blades are the right size for twin blades.<BR> Her longbow is the most amazing of all of her weapons. In fact as such it is hard to describe without you acually seeing it. The main shape is much the same as Legolas' second bow that he gets in FotR, but everything else is different. It is made of a special wood only found in the Royal Palace in Tancu. It is of a silver color, like Unicorn's blood. It is also smooth and soft. It also has Methril and platnium plating in intrcite designs, much like Legolas' first bow in placing, but it also has a unique verse written on it about betrayal and love, written in elvish.<BR>Betrayal is much of life,<BR>As life is much of betrayal.<BR>And without eachother this world,<BR>Evil as it is,<BR>Would seem at rights.<BR>But then,<BR>We are cursed,<BR>With a world,<BR>That may never,<BR>Be at rights.<BR> That is what it says, word for word. Now on to the string. The string of the bow is strung with four hairs from a Nightmare' tail braided together. The colors of fire, blue, orange, yellow, and red, for a Nightmare is a creature of fire and darkness, and great evil.<BR><b>Physical Discription:</b>Silver has silver-green eyes,silver hair, and silver tinted skin. She is lean built & 5 foot 9. She is very beautiful.<BR><b>Race:</b>3/4 Mix and 1/4 Nightmare<BR><b>Bio:</b>Silver is a queen in her own realm, But she ran away one year after her corination (when she ran away she was 15). 1885 years later she was torn into this dimention(sp) She is still hunted by one of her enemeies who came to this realm at the same time as her. <BR>At home she is the general of Tancu's army. Shae is a great leader of the war and has won many a battle.<BR><b>Horse:</b>Her horses name is Dea-Bara. He came with her to this realm. He is a stallion. His coloring is jet black.He is 22 hands, or 7 foot 4. He is one fourth Throughbred, one fourth Draft Horse, one fourth Arabian, and one fourth Nightmare. He is immortal and was born on the same day as Silver in the palace stables. He was trained and <i>he</i> trained, Silver. She has only ridden another horse once before,despite her being 2000.That one time was a desaster. <BR><b>Other:</b>Silver doesn't like humans,halflings,orcs,or darves. Though she is good at hidding all but her dispise of orcs. She likes to flirt with guys she thinks are cute, even if they are human. She is a great magic weilder, and she is part every race,even orc(thanks to her being mostly Mix). She can transform into any of these things. She is also part Nightmare. That means she has a very nasty temper, and she is very likly to go evil once that temper is unleashed. She met Legolas Greenleaf once,when she was still young. She had gone to see his father about a peace matter. She is very afraid of going back because the King would most likly contact her living relitives so she could be sent back to ruling.(whitch she hated very much)<BR> <BR> I hope that was good and i hope you end up liking me lots. <BR><BR><BR>Oh. and by the way Silver is just very magically drained. not physically hurt. though u people don't no that. She was drained by being brought here against her will. K?

I’ll post next about my ring and then be back in about 7 hours. I was thinking about it this morning, whilst I was supposed to concentrating at work (disgraceful I know but can’t be helped). I can use the ring to control water but I can also use it to vanish. At least, I disappear in the eyes of those who hearts are treacherous whilst those who are loyal will still be able to see me. I think that could come in useful, but the effort to do that with it will take an awful lot out of me, unless the adrenaline is going in a battle/attack situation. So I think it’ll have to wait until we are somewhere safer where I can recover myself afterwards.<BR><BR>Hi Silver! We’re having a bit of a crisis at the moment, but we’ll work you in somehow as soon as we can! <BR><BR>SB, please pop into my adoption thread some time? <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>

Alright Darin, I've left it up to you. Let us know if you think the ladies should go ahead with their plans. And how we should go about treating Silver, given how she has approached us. I hope this kind of prompting is okay. I like the way the story is going and I am just trying to keep it on track.

Do I get to join the RPG if I post a bio here? I'm going to anyway. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR> <BR>Name: Ciarnait, often called Kit for short.<BR><BR>Gender: Female<BR><BR>Weapons: Longbow and arrows, sling, long dagger and a spear.<BR><BR>Appearance: Tall, about 5 foot 10, long straightish brown hair, wide- spaced grey eyes. Dressed in fairly run-of-the-mill traveller's clothes; nondescript hooded cloak, green tunic, leather riding boots. Coat of ordinary chainmail (not mithril! <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> ) although a small piece of mithril mail (which cost an absolute fortune!)was patched on just where the heart is. <BR> My horse is a big gelding called Bleca, dappled grey. Being a gelding, he won't run after mares or fight with other stallions. And he can be mean when he wants to. Oh yes. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-devil.gif"border=0><BR> I have been wandering ever since I can remember. I was found by one of the House of Earendil, who adopted me, and that is why I am allied to the house. First I earned money as a healer's apprentice, then as a messenger. <BR> <BR>

Ciarnait, <BR><BR>DB and I already call another friend Kit. I am afraid it would get too confusing. Is there something else you'd like to be called? Also, are you an Elf? What is your race? I am sure DB will be okay with you joining, please wait though, until the current dilemma we are having shakes out and we are at a better place to add you into the story. <BR><BR>Welcome!!!<BR><BR>Thanks.

It's starting to feel as though all of this is coming together, which is all to the good!<BR><BR>BTW: I just edited my earlier post. For some bizarre reason the link between brain and keyboard became disengaged and I wrote about crossing the Limlight rather than the Anduin. Later on in the afternoon I was staring in a moment of boredom at my computer desktop (with its Middle Earth map wallpaper) and realised that we'd have to cross the Anduin to get to Greenwood/Mirkwood. Then my internet connection died.<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0> Anyway, I've drafted my ring action ready to cut and paste, if you want to go ahead with it.<BR><BR>

I think that would be great. But I think that Darin should chime in with his opinion before there is any more big action. This is going to be so much fun!!

Hey Leoba - do you want to do your ring action first? I think it would make more sense if you do it after Nurvilya leaves you guys. Then theoretically, the wargs will not know where you went. it's so funny - I also have my ring action all drafted and ready to go...just say the word, and we're off! Hurry up DB!<BR><BR>~*Nurvilya*~
