<i>Isilmë watches in awe as Master Istari presents her with her new ring. Her eyes shine as she takes it in her hand and slips it carefully onto her finger. The metal is cool and smooth, and in her mind she can hear a soft, sweet melody, singing of the moon and stars. Shyly she bows to Istari in thanks and backs away to examine more closely Isilírë.</i><BR><BR>Thank you!! I've always wanted a ring of power! *Goes off to put a link in her sig.*<BR><BR>Namárië!<BR>~Sil

I looked up what my name <i>might</i> be in elvish at a reliable site - www.elvish.org at the Quenya lapseparma section. My name Nathanael can be Eruantion, or Aniero. This is exciting!<BR><BR>May Elbereth look down upon us with tears falling from her eyes,<BR><BR>LordOfTheWood A.K.A Aniero.

Léanë walked into the AHUR shyly, and smiled nervously at the people gathered there. They seemed to be having a party of some sort. Hoping she wasn’t intruding, she approached the person nearest to her. Clearing her throat, and in a voice that trembled slightly, Léanë said, “Hail! I would like to request a Ring, <b><i>Fëasúl</i>, the Air Ring of the Spirit Wind</b>. I hope it is not already taken?” She then waits patiently for an answer.<BR><BR>Léanë<BR>Shieldmaiden of Rohan<BR>Daughter of the Shadows<BR>Child of the Blue Moon<BR>Journeyman Bard<BR><BR><BR>

Welcome Léanë! Wonderful seeing a healthy flow of new ringbearers! It's very close to one of our other Ringbearer's ring, the Air Ring of the Spirit of the Wind. Perhaps a rewording would suit it better? I would like to avoid confusion wherever I can.<BR>

I suppose this needs a Ring Action to liven the place up eh? *rubs hands together*<BR><BR>****RING ACTION****<BR><BR><i>Istari waved his hands in the air and darkness assumed the AHUR, so complete that only the faint glow of the Rings of the Elements were seen throughout the hall. He danced about, gesturing to the ground with fluid movements. Each time he pointed to the ground a tiny pinpoint of light appeared, shimmering like a star in the distance. At last, after Istari finished his dance, there were many points upon the floor, seemingly in a mess of light. Yet, Istari smiled and waved his hand above them, and they glowed fierce as flames in the dark of night. A gesture in the air brought before him an invisible page full of glowing runes, and he studied each, trying to find those most right for his spell. At last, he plucked out five swirling letters and gathered them in his hands like cards. Then, with one final flourish, Istari threw the runes into the blazing lights, and they became flame as they touched their surface. Pale and silvery like no known fire.</i><BR><BR><i>A deafening roar, rumbling through the very bones of the earth was heard among the unearthly fire. And behind these came a host of dragons, ghostly and ethereal as they rose from the flames. They flew about the AHUR jaws gaping as they sent fire from their mouths, yet that only disappeared into mist as it touched any surface, giving fright to certain unknowing Ringbearers who were the targets of such flames. Hundreds of dragons flew about the place, weaving about each other in their deadly and graceful dance. Each was different in their own way, displaying an array of colors and abilities. And slowly, one by one, their form disintegrated into a cloud of mist, and they fell lightly towards the awed Ringbearers, choosing one to enter into in which they chose fit. One came to Istari, its ghostly armour glowing with gold, and it assimilated itself into his form. At last, every one of the dragons had disappeared, choosing a Ringbearer in which to join with. And the AHUR was brightened by the sun once more.</i><BR><BR>****END RING ACTION****<BR><BR>I bless you with the spirits of the goodly dragons, those creatures who had roamed Arda before their form was tainted by Morgoth. Each one is unique and comes to the person most suited to its own mind and abilities. So, remember well the dragon that came to you, for it shall guard you and forever remain your friend and ally.

Wow, Istari, that was neat! Just one question...what is the AHUR? I probably should know, but I don't.<BR><BR>Oh wait, another question...so I lied. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> How does one become a Master Ringbearer?...just out of curiosity.<BR><BR>I might as well give it a try:<BR><BR>*******RING ACTION*********<BR><BR><BR><i>Isilmë closes her eyes and fingers the smooth metal of the ring about her finger. She focuses all of her inner thoughts upon the Ring of the Moon Song, praying that her first attempt at using her ring will be a success. Slowly the gem begins to glow a deep blue, blue as the night sky. From the centre of the glowing orb comes a pale, silvery thread that snakes its way out of the ring and into the room. It swirls about, finding every corner and every dark crevice that there is to be found. Silver light fills the room, and with the light comes a soft, sweet melody. The song is low and mysterious, yet comforting. It reverberates throughout the room, and finds the ears of the other ringbearers. The silver thread is joined by others, and together they begin to dance about the room, twirling and spiraling about, matching their dance with the beat of the music. Tiny balls of light join the threads and sail about the room, blinking like fireflies.<BR><BR>The threads swirl together and slowly form a staff—five lines stacked on top of each other, and the blinking balls of light find their places in the musical staff. Isilmë’s icy blue eyes follow the song as it runs over the silvery staff. Each note rings in her ears, singing a perfectly tuned melody of the night. The song plays until the staff reaches its end, and disperses into little more than silvery whisps. As the threads die, so does the song, but it leaves a soft, serene feeling in the room. The lights fade, and the glowing of Isilírë ceases.</i><BR><BR><BR>*****END RING ACTION********* <BR><BR><BR>Namárië!<BR>~Sil

For Ancalagon_The_Black<BR>One Of The Many Who Reached For A Star<BR>One Of The Few Who Grabbed One<BR><BR><BR>LordOfTheWood gently slid his new ring down his finger. It's band was made of the lightest white marble, with dark blue streaks randomly drawn across. The precious sapphire gemstone sat in the middle of the band with confidence, like a king upon his throne.<BR><BR>As he slide his new ring on, he could feel it's strength and wisedom flowing throughout him almost immediately. And just for a brief few seconds, he was overcome with an overwhelming feeling of pity of sympathy. Just as the feeling had came, it went, but not without sending a single tear down Lord's face. From his left eye it slowly fell, with every inch that it ran, it slowly became colder. When the tear had reached the end of his face, it was icy to the touch. And as it made it's final fall to the ground below, it became a frozen tear...<BR><BR>****RING ACTION****<BR><BR> <BR><i>Lord was eager to see whatever else his ring could do. He thought of Gwen and the sweet melody her ring had song. Slowly, he rubbed his own ring following her example. He stood there, wandering what great thing he was about to witness. <BR><BR>Minutes past... and still he hadn't seen anything. Giving up, Lord knew that when the time was right, his ring would present it's unique power..</i><BR><BR>****END RING ACTION****

Lordof the Wood! - i think your attempt at a Ring Action - was the action itself - A Frozen Tear for the memory of Ancalagon was beautiful! <BR><BR>Good Luck on the first day back GwenElf - Good thing you have the ring for that class.!! I predict sore vocal chords soon??<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>!! <BR>Because you asked about the AHUR - i just had alovely little reading experience! I wne tback in the scrolls of our History and ead some important happenings at our Guild!!

Here is a recount of the final design of the AHUR...Alcarin Hall i Urieb Ringorn<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> See notes at bottom!! - <BR>Enty-Smiles <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0><BR><BR><BR>___________________ÔÔÔ_____________________<BR><BR><BR> <BR>Soon after Elora’s contribution of the “Jewels of Valinor” and in conjuction with the announcement of the New Master Ring Holder “Friend” on 10/30/01...The contestants also received the "Staves of Creation" from DarkMagus..<BR>http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?start=2280&catid=37&threadid=25525<BR><BR>*************** 11/15/2001<BR>And now, a grand tour of Alcarin Hall I Uireb Ringorn!<BR><BR>As you approach the building, you see a wall surrounding the perimeter of it. As you pass through an opening in the wall, you see the entrance. On either side of the large double doors, there are pillars. The doors are made of oak. Above the doorway, the crest Storm Crow created is displayed, and encircling it, are 11 rings, all linked together, symbolizing that the rings are meant to work together. In each carving of a ring, a stone is embedded in the cement. Red for Fire, blue for Water, green for Earth, crystal for Air, black for Death, silver for Order, yellow for Life, brown for Chaos, Moon Sun and Star were represented by a marble blue, white for Light, and gray for Dark. (If you want me to change a color for the stones, I will.) You open the doors, and step into a hall. There are several green chairs, and the carpeting is red. The walls appear to be made out of wood. As you walk down the hall, you see two doors leading off to the left and right, but you ignore them for now, and head for the doors straight ahead. They are a stone, and engraved upon them is the crest of the guild. You thrust these open, and you are amazed to see a gigantic field. In the very center of the field you see a tree. This is the Tree of Sanctuary. Above, sunlight pours through a gigantic skylight. The field is covered with green grass. Under the tree, you see a small pond, and arranged around it, Ruby’s garden. (Ruby, you can change the location if you like! ) At various points in the field, benches, carved out of stone, are placed in shady spots, with one under the tree. The walls under the skylight are painted a forest green so as not to mar the beauty of the place. On top of a small hill, is Dark Magus’s forge. Leading off of the room, are many doors, arranged around the perimeter of the field. You decide to go through the one closest to you on your right. As you open the door, you see large table atop of a white carpet. Various plant life is arranged around the room. Pictures depicting all of the elements adorn the walls. This is the guild meeting room. Meetings and private discussions would take place in this room, the largest room in the building besides the field room. Across the Meeting Room, you spot a door. Going through it, you come to another room. Your eye is greeted by merry colors adorning the wall and carpets. La-z-boys of various sizes populate the room. Some of them are large enough to accommodate an Ent, while others are small enough for a hobbit, and still others are simply normal size, most arranged near a fireplace. Many windows are on the walls of this room. This is the Recreation room, where guild members would be able to sit back and relax. Heading through yet another door, you see a large hall with a long table, and arranged around it were many plush chairs. This was the dining hall. You set off to explore the rest of the building. The next room is mostly sterling silver. There is a large oven, and a refrigerator stocked with food. This is the kitchen, where guild members could cook food, if they so wished. At last, you come to the final room. Your eye is greeted this time by mostly blues and whites. Along the walls are various storage facilities for musical instruments, some designed simply to hang on the wall for all to see. Music stands are arranged about the room, and many windows are on the wall. You walk through this room, and open the door on the other side. You find yourself in the main entrance hall. Apparently, all of the rooms are interconnected. You have finished the tour of the building.<BR><BR>There we go! The wonderful Alcarin Hall I Uireb Ringorn!<BR><BR><BR><BR><BR>MANY SMALL ROOMS WERE ADDED AND PLACES NOTED BY PASSING RINGBEAERS – The Most significant change was in FEBRUARY 2002, with the <BR>“A Room to Remember Design Contest”<BR>14 rooms were created – One chosen as the Winner and he became a New Master Ring Holder!! Istari ( see new document for that account) <BR><BR>If you would like a copy of a “recap of the posts”, (!! It’s a briefing really – not all comments and posts are included) , including names suggested, additions, and comments surrounding the creation of the AHUR, and a copy of the Ring Rooms created – Ill email you 2 word documents – and you can read them for yourselves!!

Yeah, I miss Friend too... And I remember when I first came here, creating that room. It was a great contest with great posts. It must've been hard to choose a winner.

I think it's high time for a nice ring action around here.<BR><BR>******RING ACTION******<BR><BR>G_E, seeing the place had gone somber after the talk of their friend's death decides to use her ring. Concentrating on a happy memory, she willed her ring to work some magic.<BR><BR>Instantly a blue whisp of smoke unfurls from the tear-drop gem to swirl around G_E. The smoke thinckens and takes the form of her sweetie, Mungo. He takes her into his arms and gently kisses her, then as fast as he has solidified, he turned back into the whisp.<BR><BR>G_E felt intstatly uplifted and happy as she watched the smoke move around the room to each person, each time the smoke thickening to become whoever the person was thinking of at the moment.After this happened, everyone seemed happier.<BR><BR>After the smoke had made it's rounds, it returned to G_E where it twirled around her once more, then returned back into her ring.<BR><BR>******END RING ACTION********<BR><BR>I hope that makes everyone feel a little better. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

Oh, I just finished watching Dragonheart. Man, that movie always makes me so sad... Poor, poor Draco...<BR><BR>Oh, and BTW, I found the thread Enty. Took a bit, but it's still there in the Accidently Deleted Threads Forum. I've already asked them to restore it. Here's the link:<BR><BR><a target="_blank" href="http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?catid=58&threadid=20970">The Rings of the Elements: First Age</a>

<i>Just as the swirl of smoke came to Lord, it turned not into a person, but instead a piece of rich, creamy cheesecake. Oddly enough, Lord felt hungry.<BR><BR>"YAY, CAKE!" shouted Lord, and he pulled out the spoon he carries in his pocket for just these kind of emergencies.<BR><BR>Sadly for Lord, just as he diped his fork into the cake, it withered into smoke and passed onto the next ring-bearer. Once again, Lord felt an overwhelming feeling of sorrow...</i>

What?! No cake for you? We can't have that!!!!<BR><BR>******RING ACTION******<BR><BR><i>Seeing the look of pain on Lord's face, G_E realized that she needed to make him feel better.<BR><BR>Fingering her ring lightly, she watched as a pale smoke once again began to rise from the gem's twinkling surface. The smoke twisted and turned, then took the form of a pretty maiden. Smiling brightly, the maiden skipped over to Lord where she pulled out of thin air a very real piece of cake and passed it to him with a little kiss to his cheek. Giggling with delight, the maiden danced her way around the room, giving each and every one of the ringbearers a hug or kiss to lighten their spirits.<BR><BR>Once she had gone around to everyone, she made her way to the center of the room, and in a flash of bright color, she changed magically into a phoenix. Spreading her wings of fire, she flew around the room and dropped feather into the hands of each of the ringbearers. With a screech, the phoenix eruped into a pillar of flame that turned to glittering dust that seemed to fall from the heavens. <BR><BR>The glow of G_E's ring faded, but all around the room the glitter kept sparkling. </i><BR><BR>******END RING ACTION******<BR><BR>The phoenix feather has magical abilities. Whenever you are sad, just stroke the feather and you will instatly feel happier. If you are hurt, the feather will heal you. Take good care of it! Enjoy your cake too Lord! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>
