OOC: LN and the Men/Woman in Tights

This forum is for role-playing within settings that influenced Tolkien (non-Middle-earth). Acceptable styles include for Celtic, Norse, Kalevala, Arthurian, and Anglo-Saxon.

This is kinda like Robin Hood: Men in Tights but with a bit of an elvish twist. I must admit I have not seen the whole movie but I have seen some of it. I do not want to just stick exactly to the movie but kinda just make fun of Robin Hood... Get it? Well, here it goes. We will be needing:<BR><BR>Merry Men - as many people as you want<BR><BR>That Blind Dude - I think most of you know who I'm talking about and we can have more then one.<BR><BR>A Knight - This spot is mainly takin if my Handsome Knight Mister would like to become him. (it's a new twist but hey! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> )<BR><BR>The Bad Guys - Just come in and make up your own bad guy... Have fun with it... <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Well, that's about it and I hope I'm doing alright, rules-wise that is... <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> So, start when you wish and be who you wish<BR><BR>A hooded horseman/lady came out of the woods and onto the road, quickly going on her way towards the castle hoping to get there before night. Her father had been waiting for her return after being gone for 15 years. As she approached the castle she noticed something was, amiss so you would say and picked up the pace...

Hey LN i'll be a Merry Girl not Man. It sounds wrong considering the fact that I'm a girl. This is the OOC thread right? Right. I'll post my char after you admit me into the story so that I know that I'm in. I'll be your like best bud. Mister will most likely join if you e-mail him about it. Okay well can I join.

Consider the place of knight taken! I'll start Sir Mister off at King Richard 's castle and I guess he will meet up the LN and the men/women in Tights. <BR>Letora I think this is both OOC and role play thread.<BR><BR><BR>Not so far away in a hell of a big castle Sir Mister stood beside Kind Richard's throne as the king announced he would be fighting in the crusades where Orcs were attacking the holy elven land and his brother would be over seeing things while he was gone with the aid of the Sherif of Rotting-Ham.<BR>As the kings righthand man, he had been ever since Richard's hand had been taken off by an ill-tempered shrew, Mister was expected to go to the crusades as well but he mourned his sister who had run off with some blind dude and he was in no condition to fight.

This will be fun. I love that movie. I'll be a bad knight who can turn out good. I'll be like the black knight from the Montypython and the Holy Grale movie. It could be fun <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Oh, 'twould be so nice of you to let me join your fine RP. Since you don't have a bad guy yet, I would be more than willing to take that place. Count me in as the eeeevil sorceress, Erzsebet. <BR><BR><BR><i>Erzsebet laid herself on her little couch, frowning and pouting. Dark thoughts have been circling in her head ever since she decided to conquest the elven land. </i>Patsy! <i>she hollered. Her voice echoed across her big black tower and soon a tiny little orc opened the door and spoke with a raspy voice.</i> Yeees Mistress. <i>She rolled her eyes</i> Stupid, idiotic Orcs. Why oh why didn't she enslave elves? They were cleaner if nothing else. <i>she stared with disgust on a tiny bit of salad between the orc's teeth</i> Wine. Now. And chocolate, I want chocolate. <i>She closed her eyes and waited for the orc to move, but he snivelled and groaned</i> No chocolate missstresss. Since you attacked the elven land all the roads 'ave been blocked. And the Orcs 'ave not returned yet. <i>A loud thunder shook the tower and Patsy flew out of the door of her chamber escorted by a bolt of lightning. He stood up, massaging his aching shoulder.</i> Must be one of those days. <i>he thought.<BR>Erzsebet massaged her temples, thinking of nasty things she will do to those orc commanders when she gets her clutches on them. And now this, she sobbed. Stupid, stupid wars. Why did she ever decide to conquer that holy land? Nice dresses, yes, but it was just too bright for her. Oh, poop. She could always have the houses painted grey. She threw her magic ball out of the window, chuckling at the loud scream it resulted in. She was beginning to feel a bit better, so she decided to visit her dungeons. That always cheered her up. Maybe she could order the Torturer to tickle that new guy she captured, Richard or something.</i>

I'm confused. Thanx for trying to straighten me out Mister but I'm to confused. Maybe we should have the IC thread seperate from the OOC thread. After all it would be less confusing.

Word had finally reached the castle of King Richard capture. A little scout had come running into the castle while the king brother had been feasting. <BR>Mister stood and asked the scout how he had gotten there so quickly if the king had so recently been caputered <BR>"I took my Oliphaunt you dim-wit" the scout had an oddly low voice "Might hard getting on that thing it's so massive.." the scout stopped and looked at the king's brother who was giggling like a school girl with an Orlando Bloom poaster.<BR>"Right..." Mister cleared his throat "We must raise the armies! We shall free the shrew bitten King!"<BR>Much to Mister's suprise instead of taking up his cry the king's brother had him locked in the highest tower of the castle.<BR>"Well who would have guessed the king's greedy brother wanted him dead so he could claim the throne. Just because he has all sorts of different pains macanismes, was wearing the king's crown and always had an evil look on his face doesn't mean should judge the guy as the obvious evil doer" Sir Mister looked out the highest window "Woe is me"

Lady Alayna was in the exact same room as Sir Mister, the scout, and her crossdressing brother. The poster her brother was giggling at looked strangely familiar, and Alayna let out a yell.<BR>"That's mine! Gimme back!" With that she flew at him, yelling at him for messing with her things, and clawing for the return of her poster. By the time she had wrestled it out of his grip, the poster had been torn in many places, and looked right awful. <BR><BR>She hissed in disgust and went over to Sir Mister, who, at that very moment, was looking out of the window and muttering something about woes. It didn't seem exactly appealing to her, anyway, and whether or not there was still a king made little difference to her, for she had more than enough money for whatever purposes she might need it for. It was boring here, never any wars, only crusades, and only men were allowed to fight in those! In a right fit, she stormed from the chamber and headed down to the practice yards, where a post got seriously whacked with a wooden sword, used for training, for a good hour or so. That done, she headed for her chambers...

<i>She purred with excitement as the somewhat bearded king convulsed in spasms</i> Do that again! <i>she ordered the Torturer with the giant feather. He gladly obliged, thinking to himself</i> Finally something that doesn't mess up my best torturing outfit! <BR><BR>You shall learn nothing from me, you foul b...east! <i>the king studdered between bursts of laughter.</i><BR><BR>You'll come to your senses. Everyone does sooner or later. <i>She cheerfully exclaimed, thinking this was not such a bad day after all. She climbed too much stept to her room in the tower that was quite conveniently right on top of it.</i> Why oh why didn't anyone invent an elevator yet? Good for figure, very bad for prespiration. <i>She looked on her to-do list and ticked off Torture Richard-guy. Now if only she could find that Ye Olde Snickers bar she hid a few weeks ago... The tinyest thought screamed in her mind</i> <BR><BR><u>HEY! Yes, you! They'll be rescuing him soon, you know! </u><BR><BR>Mind, do me a favour and think once in a while! They'd have to cross Marshes full of ogres, fight my invincible army of Orcs AND slay the bunny. And on top of that, I have a dragon. And no matter how into music he is, he's still a dragon. And if they, by some unfortunate chance DO defeat the said foes, I'll see them a mile away, since my tower is on top of a hill and it'll give me a chance to see them and taunt them. And if they will not be turned away by this, I can always change them into something unnatural. Like pigs. So... what do we say?<BR><BR><u>Oh forgive me mightiest and most pretty of all socreress...ess. I bow to your great wisdom!</u><BR><BR>Better...Now, where's that Ye Olde Snickers...

Hey LN I think that I'm going to join this thread later. I'll keep myself updated on what is going on here and then join when later in the story. I'll keep you posted. Make a seperate OOC thread. That way it will be easier for newcomers. Keep this as the IC thread.

Actually Letora, I think it would be better to keep this as the OOC thread. The Mods might close it, as with many others, if it is an IC thread for having too many OOC posts in it. Or they would have to delete all of them, and we need them to refer to stuff!<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> It would be much easier and less confusing to just make an IC thread and then have everyone copy and paste their posts from here into that thread.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Eilerin the Paranoid Idiot sat against a tower on the top of a hill. She hummed happily to herself as she shoved the last of a Snickers bar into her mouth. Her head bobbed from side to side as she read the wrapper over and over again to herself. <i>Snickers</i>, it read. Well, Eilerin wasn't sure why, but she snickered as the bar commanded her to. <BR><BR>"Heart, stars, horseshoes, clovers and blue moons! Pots of gold, rainbows, and the red balloons!" Here, Eilerin jumped to her feet and shouted: "They're after me lucky charms!" Then added with a little jig: "They're magicaly delicious!"<BR><BR>Eilerin's head cocked to the side, looking up at the tower. The sound of someone laughing insanely came down to her ears. Somewhere in her memory she knew about this. <i>Where do I know this from?</i> She thought. Eilerin's mind trailed back to about ten minutes ago when she had been dropping eaves on the evil sorceress who had captured some king.<BR><BR>"It's up to me to save the day!" she said, shoving her thumb into her chest a little too hard. "Owie..." she said, her lip pouting. Eilerin scratched her head for a moment. "I guess I could always leave that "Hero" stuff up to Chad Kroeger and Josey Scott..."<BR><BR>Suddenly, Eilerin heard something moving behind her. On instinct, she turned on her heel. <BR><BR>"I know you're after my lucky charms, but you'll never take me alive!"<BR><BR>Making her decision, Eilerin ran off, deciding to help the good guys against the evil sorceress and reclaim their Snickers bar stash that sorceress had stolen. After all, she knew the sorceress' tricks. How to get through the Shrek's in the Marshes; Ellude the "invincible" army of "Plastic Surgery Gone Wrong"; and the key to the bunny was get Elmer Fudd after him; and the dragon . . . she was still working on that.<BR><BR>"To infinity, and beyond!"

So, we just continue from where we left off here in the OOC? Won't that prove a bit difficult to read/understand for the future potential RPers that would may want to join? Or won't you be accepting further characters? Just asking, to be sure I won't mess anything up, as I am most prone to do<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

Sorry Silmarie, I've got it pretty much cleared up so just go to the RP and start fresh cause then no one will get lost and we can all start on the same page... K? here we go. hopefuly the mods approve of my starting post in the actual RP, if some of you can go and read it and give me some feed back I would greatly appreciate it cause I want this RP to last a while since some of mine don't really last all that long... <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-happy.gif"border=0>

I'll just wait untill the King rides off to the sunset and introduce my little shrew<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Or maybe I could use a whole army of lesser shrews...hmmmm.... Anyways, Mister, I'll be sure to keep your hands full, so to speak<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>I would guess noone is applying for a job of the bad guy?
