Aloha gang!!<BR><BR>Leofric- You got caught up in real life....sounds interesting. What is that? A life I mean...much less a real life. I've heard rumors and stories....legends and myths of real life.... <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Anyway...just thought I'd harass everyone...bye<BR><BR><BR><BR>"You die, she dies, everybody dies"

I reckon that there ain't enough elves in this RP.<BR><BR>Leofric, if you can make it here (I sure hope you can), I think another elf character would balance out things nicely.<BR><BR>Anways, Menecin sounds like a rather dour chap. He could probably do with some company, if you could stand him... <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Snowdog, great post. I did not find it confusing at all, and I am blonde! I think it will be necessary to use NCE's in this RP, so I have no objection to them. Afterall, Naiore would have noone to kill without NCE's.<BR><BR>

Character audition? Yegads... okay, time to think. Hmmm... okay...<BR><u>Shirr</u> is an assassin and a spy of sorts.She will be hired by anyone willing to pay her fees, to kill any one, anything, whatever. She doesn't care. She doesn't choose sides. The ruffians and wildmen could hire her to knock off a king that only a week ago she murdered a foe for, and she won't give it a second thought. She's not exactly the most classy thing in middle earth, but a bit of a feminist. She'll go out of her way to do something because a man told her she couldn't. She'll do anything for money... well, <i>almost</i> anything.<BR> There's a lot of oppurtunites with this character, I think... if you wanted to turn her into a classier being (good luck, but you can try), if you want to make her pick one side or another, if you want to make her accept men a little more... so, ya know...<BR> I'm gonna be gone for about a week, so I hope this isn't starting anytime soon...<BR> Well, see you around!

Jason, Where in the world do you get all those jokes from? Is it your unofficial signature?<BR><BR>Fascinating posts, everyone. In the meantime are we supposed to interact only with ourselves or others? I know that we are all supposed to be in the same city, but everyone is supposed to keep to themselves for now, right? That is, until we decide how to meet? I am a bit confused now. *sighs*

Aloha gang!!!<BR><BR>Tobias- Actually, 'Aloha' is more or less my signature, but I decided a little while ago that when I post in an OOC thread, that I will end the post with a quote or a joke, or whatever. I mainly do it 'cause I find it entertaining. And I try to sprad joy and happiness whereever I go. So, if one of my.....blurbs, brings a smile to your face, then I have succeded. Even if one of my blurbs angers you and makes you scowl or think what a jerk I may be, I guess that's ok too. Let's face it, a bad reaction is better than no reaction at all. And for the record, the last joke I posted in the thread, about Jesus and the inn, was from the movie "The Crow". I do plagerize <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR><BR>I know I'm gonna catch flack for this one...remember...it's a joke...<BR><BR><BR>"What do women and rocks have in common?"<BR><BR>"You can skip the flat ones."

Lets see here.... this is the <i>OOC- War of the Ring - The Aftermath" Planning Thread</i>, not the jason chase chat and comedy thread. I for one come here to read about planning and such for the <i>War of the Ring - Aftermath</i> RP, not someone who has yet to make post 1 to the RP cracking jokes about Jesus. Take it somewhere else.

Aloha gang!!<BR><BR>Snowdog- I hear where you're coming from my friend. And the idea for a Jason Chase chat/comedy thread...BOLD idea. I'll do that. Look for it soon gang <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <BR>And I've posted about a dozen or so blurbs and quotes. 2 have mentioned Jesus...relax. <BR>And as for me not making a single post yet in the actual thread, had you bothered to read the first few pages of the OOC thread, or had you at least retained any information after you read it, I said I was going to wait for the story to develope. I post here to keep in touch with the people I need to. If that's a problem...bummer...<BR><BR><BR><BR>Two men were walking down the beach after a storm. In the distance they noticed another man walking towards them, he was picking up starfish and tossing them back into the ocean. Once they were close to each other One of the men said to the man tossing the starfish<BR>"What are you doing?"<BR>The other man replied,<BR>"If the starfish do not get back into the ocean, they will die."<BR>The first man was completly astounded and he said,<BR>"What possible difference, can you, one man, make? There are thousands of beaches, all around the world. You can't make a difference my friend."<BR>The other man bent down, picked up a starfish and tossed into the ocean and replied,<BR>"Made a difference to that one."

Maybe you should try and help develop the story instead of just jumping into the middle of a Tolkien Middle Earth based RP at your leisure. Oh thats right, you dont know anything about Middle Earth. Maybe I should step out now and let the other folks do the developing and maybe Hanasian will jump in later when things are well on their way. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0><BR><BR>On the RP... great posts Tobias! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> It is my honor to be in this RP with you. As usual, excellent posts Ronnan, Tempest, and Naiore! This RP has the makings of a good one!

Aloha gang!!<BR><BR>Snowdog- Perhaps we got off on the wrong foot. You do not appreciate my jokes or comments or the fact I have yet to post in the RP, I apologize. I recognize your name from other RP's that I have popped into, even one that I played for a moment. I have also heard from some of the other players that you are an Exellent roleplayer, an exellent poster, and all around nice guy. From your posts that I have read, I have to agree. You are awesome at it. I hope to have the chance for our characters to interact.<BR><BR>And do not freat, I am not going to wait THAT long to post in the RP, I assure you. Especially now that my character is more fleshed out.<BR><BR>And, as far as my OOC posts go, I regretfully can not change the way I do them. Sorry. But that's part of what makes me, me. However, if the Jesus jokes are offensive, I will stop those. 1)All you had do was ask, I would have stopped out of respect. 2)I have 3 Jesus jokes in my arsenal...I already told 2. The 3rd is a visual so it does me no good here.<BR><BR>We are at a cross roads here Snowdog. One of two things can happen.<BR> <BR>1)You can accept my apology, we can move on, and hopefully have some exellent RP'ing together...<BR>2)You can still be displeased with me and nothing will change. The choice is now yours...<BR><BR>My apology was sincere....*Jason extends his hand* What say you?<BR><BR><BR><BR>And for you, this time, I will skip my usual blurb....

EEP!<BR><BR>Noone is going anywhere as Naiore has locked the doors and has swallowed the key. That means there is a good 3 or so hours before the doors can opened again...<BR><BR>Now, let's just set all this aside and RP!<BR><BR>Please? Pretty please?<BR><BR>I for one, would be very upset to any RPer here on this thread step aside. Naiore may even cry... you wouldn't want that now, would you?<BR><BR>Lalatiel - your character sounds great. I give it the thumbs up. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Well done.<BR><BR>Tobias, until your character meets another, you will be interacting on your own. I have found introducing NCE's (non controlled entities), you can build in interaction between your character and others to facilitate the story. For example, Naiore killed a carpet merchant and she has memories of Celebrimbor. Nobody is actually playing those people. They're NCE's and are being used to help me tell the story of Naiore.<BR><BR>Snowdog and Ronnan are also using NCE's... it's a necessary part of RPing. You can use this thread to plan ahead how two actual characters may meet, or how their encounter would go down, when you do bump into "somebody". <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>I hope that makes sense.

Ok Jason, I accept your apology and will offer my own for being somewhat of a grouch.<BR><BR>This is the main reason why I prefer no OOC threads to my RP anymore as it adds alot of useless (to me) posting and nonsense. So I don't usually read them anymore when they become chat, etc threads (Nightguards is WAY worse than this one), and so if anything is said about the story, I will probably miss it. Sorry everyone, I don't do OOCs well.

Hmmmmmm,<BR><BR>Well then I suppose it is no place of mine to ask you to consider otherwise Snowdog, and so I shall respect your wishes in this regard. I know that it is odd for me not to overstep the mark and charge in boots and all... but go figure.<BR><BR>This thread, I hope, will be used as a place to ask questions, for new players to join, to plan and so forth...<BR><BR>So if you don't mind, my dear friend (and I do mean that), I shall mention to you directly planning info so that you don't miss it as you're important part of this RP. I don't want you to be left out.<BR><BR>That way, everyone is kept informed. The downer is that you'll hear from me perhaps more than anyone may wish to hear from the sort of person who can conceptualise someone like Naiore, but them's the breaks. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Will that suit? I hope so...<BR><BR>And may I add that Oscar the Grouch remains my favourite character from Seasame Street. I liked him better in the 1970's, when Oscar could cut it up the way he liked. Now it's gotten all socially aware and Oscar has lost his "edge", which is probably good overall for developing minds. Cute, green, hairy grumpy dude who lives in the garbage bin and has a best friend in the form of a worm named "Sammy" who dances...<BR><BR>Geez, I have just revealed more about my age and personality in that comment than any other I have made on TORC, but what I'm trying to say is that this is a place where you can say it like you see it. Sometimes it means you bump into someone else, but in the end it's the sort of place I prefer to be... honest.<BR><BR>Have I upset anyone with the above? Any objections?<BR>

Alright then, Snowdog. Can't say as I blame you for whom would want to hear from me? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Now, are there any questions concerning where this RP is heading?<BR><BR>Jason, how's that post going? Just asking as there's only so lomg I can hold my breath before going blue.

Hello, I'd like to join this roleplay, is someone can just explain what is going on. I got a bit lost in the earlier posts. Alittle explaination will do me a whole lot of good. By the way, my charactor's name will be Wycoth. Thanks.11

Hail newcomer.<BR><BR>Rather than re-hash what we've already discussed, I recommend that you review the beginning of this OCC thread for a thumb nail sketch of what this RP is about. Elora gave a run down there. You'll also get a handle on the characters and the sort of thing we're aiming for with this RP.<BR><BR>In essence, that should give you a summary. It's up to you to conceptualise your characte and the specific role you'll play. Elora's pretty good at suggestions and ideas, but you will need to have the bare bones in place first.<BR><BR>Could you please give us more detail on your planned character. Who are they, what are they, why are they here?<BR><BR>This RP is all about collaborative writing. If you're prepared to write and develop a story, and as committed to avoiding one-liner posts as we are, you're sure to be be welcome. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>So, back to you for some more info please. Flesh out your character for us.<BR><BR>Leofric - Yay, another Noldo to keep me company! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Good to have you with us.

Name: Wycoth Felix<BR>Nickname: Wy<BR>Sex: Male<BR>Race: Human<BR>Age: 20<BR>Height: 5 feet 7 inches<BR>Weight: 60 kg<BR>Hometown: Imladris<BR>Bio: Wycoth is an independent young man. He has no last name as, when he was 2, was abandoned by his mother and brought to an orphanage. They called him Kyth. He hated the name, so, as soon as he got out of the orphanage at age 12, he gave himself a new name-Wycoth Felix. He tried his hand at opening a bar, but was unsuccessful, so he had to close it. Left with his horse and a pack of cards (he’s a master at card games) he set off to try and earn a living somewhere. Until he ran into this group…<BR><BR>That's about all I planned for now...

Hail Morphobia.<BR><BR>Good basic run down. My thanks for obliging us so. What part do you envisage this character playing in the RP?<BR><BR>I know, so many questions. Indeed, I would love to welcome you to our number. I just need to understand how you think your character will fit into the plot overall. Which characters do you think you'll be interacting with? Are you good or evil or indifferent? Are you searching for peace, prosperity, vengeance? Are you serving a higher duty or simply your character's own inclinations?<BR><BR>All are worth consideration I have found, as they help me explain why my character is present, decide what they will do, how, when, where and with whom they will act. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>What are your thoughts on the above? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Since Wycoth is independent, I guess he'll be a loner. As for who to go with... I'm not sure, unless someone wants to 'adopt' me. And he's good, I guess.............

OK, I just want to check I've got Wycoth appropriate conceptualised.<BR><BR>He's a young man of Rohan, without family, and of good character. His tale will be of a young man making his way, negotiating the changes to Middle-earth after the War of the Rings.<BR><BR>He will be based in Rohan?????? <BR><BR>It is possible he will find himself faced with challenges to overcome before he can settle into his place in the world????<BR><BR>Will he be in Rohan? What is his "trade"?<BR><BR>As for adopting you, that will largely depend on where you start from geographically speaking. If in Rohan, it's possible that you could interact with Menecin, or Tempest.<BR><BR>If in Gondor, then Hanasian, Tobias or Jason... Nienjah and Leofric and Shirr have yet to make their opening move. It's unlikely that you'd want Naiore to "pick you up" as your young man would die a young man.<BR><BR>Is he part of those wishing to root out the remaining remnants of Mordor from his community?<BR><BR>You'll need a good idea of what part you wish to play in this story to help us decide who would be best suited to work with you.<BR><BR>No need to come up with an answer straight away. Familiarise yourself with what has happened thus far, ask the specific questions you have and you may well find that the most logical part for Wycoth suggests itself to you.
