Snowdog, you're a star. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> I've got quite a lot of it on my computer at home, since I posted it up ages ago, but I haven't done any more about it since the new board started up. I think I will, since it would be nice just to reread at my leisure, that way I can get the feel of what's going on again! <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

I am afraid this story has died without Eleanorae. I have a whole story based on Halasian, Forcwyn, and Hayna I am putting together and soI will still post on occasion for my own benefit. You have done well, and there is a good story for the part of Arkaeth ad his fianceé near Evendim, and I have by my being connected to Anganaur, father of Almarian had written some of their exploits as well. If/when I get done with it it will be quite the story.

I may change some of this later, but it a general idea of my character.<BR><BR><BR><b>NAME:</b> Morghan <BR><b>AGE:</b> middle aged (by human standards)<BR><b>GENDER:</b>female <BR><BR><b>RACE:</b>Her mother, Brieta, had claimed to have Noldorian blood and came from the Ered Luin region. Her father, Ruark Lachlan, a Ranger from the northern reaches of Eriador. Both have passed away. <BR><BR><b>LOCATION:</b> Morghan lives in the Chetwood Forest near edge of the Midgewater. She has lived a life of solitude for many years, seeing few local people except for those that sought her out for her knowledge of healing herbs or those foolish enough to come seeking charms to solve their woes. Many whispered words have been spoken by those in the region; some claimed her healing potions worked, others spoke harshly of the woman who lived alone, but was known to have visitors from distant lands stop by her dwelling in the forest. <BR><BR><b>PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION:</b> Fair skinned, but tanned, tall, with a slender muscular build. Her eyes are dark gray and her hair a deep reddish brown.<BR><BR><b>PAST/BACKGROUND:</b> After her parents death (her father in a skirmish with orcs, her mother, bitter and lonely on hearing of his death, died from a wasting illness that Morghan could find no cure for), she traveled alone for many years before settling in Chetwood. Friends of her father and mother have been known to visit her small cabin in the forest, bringing news of the outside world and herbs they have picked up on their travels for her to study. She has heard rumors of the darkness spreading across the countryside, but thus far it has not concerned her. <BR><BR><b>SKILLS:</b> Healing, skilled with a knife, has some of the in-born sense of the elvish races, but they are not sharply defined. Her father attempted to train her in the ways of the Rangers, but she showed no interest. <BR>

<b>NAME:</b> Michrel<BR><b>AGE:</b> ten years younger than Morghan, he also has the ageless look of his elvish heritage.<BR><b>GENDER:</b> Male<BR><b>RACE:</b> His mother, Brieta, had claimed to have Noldorian blood and came from the Ered Luin region. His father, Ruark Lachlan, a Ranger from the northern reaches of Eriador. Both have passed away. <BR><BR><b>PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION:</b> Tall and slim with a wiry build, his skin fair and face finely chiseled, his eyes the same dark gray as his sisters. His dark, almost black hair is worn long, tied back with a leather cord. <BR><BR><b>PAST/BACKGROUND:</b> Trained in the ways of a Ranger by his father. He had just begun service with them when the group of Rangers that his father served with was ambushed by orcs. Young and untested in battle, he had run when he saw that they were outnumbered. In disgrace with the Rangers and himself, he had traveled far to the east, looking to prove himself before returning to the west. He has seen first-hand the spreading darkness and intends to rejoin the Rangers, if they will have him.<BR>

Horay! I found my old character description! :)

Name: Forinor
Age: 44
Race: Man - Gondorian
Gender; Male
Profession: Soldier

Bio: Forinor was born in TA 2944 and raised in North Ithilien. His family went to Minas Tirth when he was 10 when Mt Doom blew. A band of Orcs attacked then at their old house as they left, and his father and some other men fought them back. His father was fatally wounded, and died shortly after arriving at the House of Healing in Minas Tirth. The boy became somewhat withdrawn through his teen years, but practiced the use of the sword daily. When he was 20, he had grown to full stature and matured well. He officially joined the army of Gondor, and was assigned to Pelargir where he served for a time under Thorongil, and fought skirmishes with the men of Umbar when they would flare up. He soon shown great skill in stealth, and could move extremely quick with little fatigue, and move quietly for a man. He was a master of the sword and knife, and also learned the use of a bow and was pretty good with one also. He feared not death, but he became feared by the men of Umbar. When not at the front He learned the art of old of shipbuilding, and accompanied Thorongil and also served under him in the raid on Umbar. He was saddened greatly when Thorongil left the service of the Steward Ecthelion II. He then transferred to and served the garrison of Henneth Annûn near the place of his birth, where his skills were of great use. One day he was summoned to see Steward Denethor II in Minas Tirth, for his commanders had told the Steward of some of his deeds, and he was chosen to move with haste alone to Imladris to seek counsel and news. He had a stoic demeanor, and would take any assignment given him, or would volunteer for any that was offered.

Appearance: Long, dark, near black hair to the middle of his back. Sea grey eyes and a fair face. He was 6'6" and 205 Lbs with a strong muscular build. The ladies of Gondor thought him a good looking man, and at the few social functions he attended he was an attraction for a dance which he obliged, but he showed no interest in any. He said he would bind no woman to him, for his duty was that of battle, and would break no heart by coming home to her on a funeral pyre. Some felt he had this belief because of the grief of his mother when his father died.
____________________________________________________________

Name: Forinor
Age: 36
Race: Man - Gondorian
Gender; Male
Profession: Soldier

Nephew and namesake of of the elder Forinor spoke of in the tale Sahdow Over Arnor. He looked similar, but his eyes were more bluish than grey. The war took heavy toll on him and his appearance was scarred by sword and smashed helm. Greyness started to claim his temples, but his dark hair only gleamed a few strands of silver in the sun.

I'm just posting to bring this topside so that I can find it again easily, as I'm trying to get my head around my characters and the ones that will be involved in The Mists of Eriador. I should also post a profile of Lilion, since he's not even mentioned in here!

Heliona, Hunter and Aerin have created and stickyd at the top of the forum The Old Grey Mare's Reading Room which is an index of Prancing Pony threads. That makes it easy to find threads! Hopefully this thread will not be deleted as being unnecessary.

Oh stunning!! Thanks for letting me know that, Raven. I've been trying to investigate the various sticky threads, but obviously not in the right order! :)
