Yes, I echo Elbren's words, for its really hard to find a place to get a drink around here these days. Oh there are many Inns, but to go there these days will get a health department lock down if they surfaced.<BR><BR>I will return again sometime to the Blue Dragon. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

I think we need something new in the story line. Right now things are too nice and quiet <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> <BR>With Es leaving is seems like a chapter of the story has ended. <BR>By the way, what happened to the whole troop of elf warriors that Carnilmo brought with him? Maybe we could use them to start some action.

Okay, story line:<BR><BR>Es' ex-husband has been pierced by an arrow, without graphic detail <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Amarthran arrived at the inn after leading Carnilmo's elves across the Wilds to the general area of the inn. He has gotten himself into quite a situation now, though he will not admit it. However, he is now thinking of using it as a reason to stick around with Lai, Grace and co. That is if that line was ever an invitation...<BR>He basically saved Lai from death by some pretty big risks he took for both her and himself and now Carnilmo is not impressed with him. Not that he cares.<BR><BR>Amarthran is a Ranger Half-Elf from Imladris, though he had not been there in 50 years. He is now about 100. He has wandered alot and has become a hardened warrior and keen in perception. However, he knows when he is in a corner, but he is proud and will not outrightly admit it...<BR>He now intends to use Lai's suggestion of him being in a company with protection at all times as a means of staying at the inn until Lai and her companions leave and then to travel with them...That okay with you, ElfAngel? How will that turn out, approximately? Just so I can plan the post better in my mind. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Now, there is a nice little award out there for Best Inn, let's strive to be the next recipients <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>Be back later!

Yep - sounds good *Elfman*<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Sure you can join us...<BR><BR>As to the whole Silme thing...<BR>Silme is a lady of Lorien, and was betrothed to Carnilmo from birth, but she resented all the choices her parents made for her and ran away after her best friend Lai.<BR>They met again in the Blue Dragon, where Silme met Grace, and Carnilmo and his elves caught up with them.<BR>Oh, and the reason Silme hates Carnilmo so much is because he caused the person she loved to die<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

'Found it out before you arrived' - if you could call it that. Basically, I made that up when we went off on holiday, so Silme and Lai disappeared from the inn on business with two guys (one was Silme's brother, who also died; and the other was his best friend, the guy Silme loved.) and then came back feeling rather dejected and unhappy<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Note: No more OOC comments in the IC thread. Please. That's what an OOC thread is for. I am going to lock the IC thread for 48 hours while you continue your plot development in the OOC thread. I am still seeing posts in the IC thread that are bringing the whole thread back down to the closing threshold. I will unlock the IC thread on Saturday evening.

Thanks Elbren. Thats a great idea. We need to focus on this thread right now.<BR><BR>So lets get to work! This inn has been my first role play and I've never posted in an OOC thread before so I don't know exactly how this works but I'll just let you all know what my ideas are. <BR>-I'm thinking that since we already have this whole group of elves standing around they might as well get restless and cause a little trouble. After all, their leader is after Amarthran anyway <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR>-I'm thinking about bringing Earwen's past into the story to add something new. Its up to you all if you want something new now. No one is out to kill her or anything, but maybe I could liven things up. Let me know if you guys even want to bother with a new twist to the story now. Some of you are confused enough already <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> so I'll understand if you want me to save it for later.<BR><BR>Oh, and if you've checked out the IC thread, it seems that Es hasn't left us after all <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Horray! Before we had all of these questions about whether she had left or not, I had been planning on having Earwen develop an attatchment to Es' children. This is mainly because Earwen has never had to protect and be responsible for someone before and while she is an adult she is still young and can relate to the children in some ways. Is this alright with you Es?<BR><BR>What is everyone else thinking?

I think it sounds good Earwen!<BR>Slight correction: The leader of the elves (Carnilmo) is not 'after' Amarthran - he has a grudge against Amarthran. But he's after Silme<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>If anyone has any ideas, to cause a distraction or summat, please do say! I'm all out of them...<BR>Good to have you back Es!

Good idea Elbren, and I know I am guilty of that myself. My appologies.<BR><BR>Okay, so the setup of things thus far has been determined. NOw, we seem to be agreed that the Elves need some reason to cause trouble, any ideas?

Not exactly.<BR>Problem is, as far as they've been described, they're pretty headless. Anyone for any drink elves dashing about the inn? If you want action, you get it, even if it isn't a good idea<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>And Gilvala, do you mind if we scrap the whole 'no violence' rule? Because that kinda makes it a bit harder...

Well, I'm completely out of stuff to say, so how about we 're-start' the storyline from here?<BR>I don't mean restart exactly, but instead of continuing the storyline, consider that the end of a chapter, say, then plan the new one and write that out.<BR>That means that we basically have few things to think about, except that Grace, Carnilmo, one of his elves and I are sitting at a table; Amarthran and Lai are at the bar talking; Gilvala is wandering around the inn as usual; and Earwen, Ganrod and Fig are at another table - oh, and Es is in a room and Manya and Gaya are out on a journey.<BR>So from there, we could change the subject.

I think that the "Close of Chapter" idea has merrit...<BR>We have things set up exactly as they were before but just start a new story...? Like this:<BR><BR>Lai and Amarthran at Bar<BR>Es in room<BR>Silme and Co at table<BR>etc.<BR>*Start new plot*<BR><BR>Is that what you mean?

I think it was more of literally start a new chapter<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>So you still have the characters where they are, and they still have their various histories.<BR>Then, say Silme and Carnilmo stop talking and one of them does something else, etc.

Ok people,I mostly made my history,I just need a few finishing touches.By saturday it should be finished.So I`m thinking of telling my history to someone soon,but before the inn gets involved in it I`d like something easy first,like drunk elves(if Gilvala doesn`t mind).<BR>So what do you think?

Sure. But d'ya think you could kinda tell us your history here, so that we all get it in the actual RP? Please?<BR><BR>Thing is, while drunk elves may work (and if everyone agrees, fine) but what do we do with/after the drunk elves? It's all very well writing them in as drunk in a post, but that doesn't do anything when we get to bits afterwards. I find that one problem in RPing, you want to ask something, or carry on a conversation, but you're not entirely sure how the other character will react<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>
