Sounds like fun. Here's a newbie question. Is it okay to have more than one RP adventure going at a time?

Then count me in. <BR><BR>My profile: (short version, really!)<BR><BR>Dirk the Daring, son of Drake, travelling under Smaug's Bane <BR>RACE: Human<BR>GENDER: Male<BR>ORIGIN: Esgaroth, mother died in childbirth, father and 5 brothers run a very successful inn in Esgaroth, The Golden Dragon. Ancestors fought in the war of the ring and the battle of five armies. Related to Bard, slayer of Smaug, but only remotely.<BR>APPEARANCE: Average Height, stout upper body, massive arms and shoulders, very little body fat. (this isn't of his own design, as beer-drinking is one of his favorite pass-times, unfortunately, since he left Esgaroth months ago, times have been lean.) Long black hair, in a tight braid, long black mustache, grey eyes, dark-tanned skin from living outdoors for several months. Wearing travelling clothes of mixed origin – black leather breeches from Gondor, Blue tunic from Dale, high black leather riding boots from Rohan. And a dark-grey cloak of unknown origin that provides very good camouflage when needed<BR>WEAPONS: His dagger, a short, razor-sharp, well-crafted blade concealed in his boot. It is polished to a high sheen as a mirror with a green jewel set into the hilt. It is very powerful, old and enchanted. His bow, made in the style of Mirkwood and of wood from that forest was built for him by ereine, of the Craftmaster’s Guild. It too, is magical, however because it is new, it has not revealed its nature yet. He carries a quiver of matching Mirkwood arrows, which he always seems able to recover.<BR>SKILLS: Stealth, of a magnitude not thought possible for such a large human. Approaching Elven or Hobbit stealth. He prefers to use this in battle, preferring not to fight toe-to-toe if it can be avoided. He is able to fire an arrow farther than anyone now living in Middle Earth. However, because of the nature of his bow, (which seems to have a mind of its own, as well as the arrows, which seem to work in concert, sometimes against SB), he is not always deadly accurate. However, he always seems to hit the mark when it is really necessary.<BR>DISPOSITION: Always of seemingly happy disposition, SB enjoys drinking, gambling, arm-wrestling, playing practical jokes, and anything else he can think of in the pursuit of a good time. SB is a master in the arts of beer and wine making. (and drinking) Fiercly loyal and quick to trust, SB values nothing higher than friends and family.<BR><BR>Means of Travel: Borrowed horse from friends in his homeland. (he lost his father's horse in a card game.) He is a large, grey drafthorse, extremely sturdy. He also has no name yet.<BR><BR>

I was thinking more along the lines of BigBroDB's idea. That way we can pickup more players as me move along. You know, we can let others going the same direction join in. Then we can also allow for people to leave the company as the story progresses. This also kind of allows it to be a constantly evolving newbie RP thread. It doesn't have to end. (Am I rambling already? And we haven't even started yet. Maybe I belong in some of the writer's threads. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> ) <BR><BR>BBDB, if you want to read the long version, it is in the character archive thread in the Prancing Pony. hehe <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Postby Leoba » Sat Feb 16, 2002 4:22 pm

I'd like to be in on this as well.<BR><BR><i>One character profile coming up...</i><BR><BR><b>Name</b> Leoba Vórima, Lady of Ithilien<BR><b>Race</b> Human<BR><b>Gender</b> Female<BR><b>Age</b> 20<BR><b>Height</b> 5’6’’, slightly built but strong enough.<BR><b>Hair</b> Chestnut brown, waist length, wavy and unruly, so usually plaited in a long rope.<BR><b>Eyes</b> Emerald green and frequently twinkling with laughter.<BR><b>Occupation</b> Itinerant Bard<BR><b>Weapons</b> She carries a sword, Angthalion, inherited from her grandmother who was a shieldmaiden of Rohan, as well as a longbow and quiver full of arrows.<BR><BR><b>Personality</b> Honest and fiercely loyal to her friends, whom she would defend to the death. Bound by oath in eternal friendship with SB, she would do anything to aid or protect him. Leoba also has a soft spot for mead and poetry.<BR><BR><b>Appearance</b> Leoba usually travels dressed in male garb (pale sky-blue linen tunic, leather ankle boots, leaf-green hose and matching hood, brown woollen cloak pinned at the neck) for ease and comfort. Her small pack contains little aside from fresh clothes, a dress for best and her fiddle. Leoba wears female clothes when she’s not on the road: a dark green gown, embroidered at neck, hem and sleeve with gold thread. It is fastened at the neck with a circular amethyst and silver brooch, her waist encircled by a silver girdle which looks as though it has been fashioned from interlaced ivy-leaves. She carries the brooch close to her at all times. Between her tunic and shirt, she wears a silver medallion, the ‘Friendship Amulet of Gil-Galad’, given to her by Smaugs Bane, and on the middle finger of her right hand she bears Gaeros, the WaterRing of Hidden Depths. She also possesses an Elven dagger, which she won in a competition.<BR><BR><b>Biography</b> Leoba was born and raised in the fair and verdant land of Ithilien. Her mother was from Rohan, her father of Gondor. She grew up with four older brothers with whom she was tutored and spent much of her childhood engaged in sword-play and archery, but also read obsessively. At the age of 17, she joined her eldest brother Culanir in Minas Tirith, where he was sworn as a knight of the White City, putting her skills as a Bard to good use in the service of the King. After a turbulent year and a romance which she shouldn’t have become involved in, she was forced to leave Minas Tirith. Her lover had given her a valuable silver brooch in the shape of an endless knot and set with an amethyst (a family heirloom), as a pledge of his love. His kin, determined to drive Leoba away from the son and heir, accused her of stealing it and she was forced to flee the City. Two years further on, she now wanders at will through Middle Earth, supported only by her skill with voice and fiddle but nevertheless capable of defending herself and her friends at need and hopeful that some day she will be able to clear her name and return home. <BR><BR>

The more the merrier!<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>The question is, where are we going? North towards Mirkwood is tempting because there are loads of nasty things in there which could waylay us. Mind you, a direction which takes in the odd inn or two wouldn't go amiss either?<BR>

We could even stop by Lake-Town, SB's home. I have had some good ideas for stories about SB, but there just haven't been any good places to put them. <BR><BR>Perhaps, we could choose the road West and somehow come upon a reason to turn north towards Mirkwood.

Azazel, and all, <BR><BR>I hope I haven't given the impression that you were interrupting. Quite the contrary, I am just anxious to get to know you, and wanted to have you post who you and your character are here. There is no such thing as a mistake here.

No need to apologise, Echo-Starlite. As SB said, this RPG is here so that we can all learn. (I find it helpful to see character synopses in one place, so that if I want to refer to someone in my post I can double check their details more easily than trawling through the whole story).<BR><BR><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>SB, I have a few character ideas for Leoba, but haven't quite figured out how and where to weave them in either. I'm toying with the idea of turning some of the stories into verse and then I can use them as entertainment. Verse takes time and inspiration though, and that's a touch lacking at the moment for some reason.<BR>
