Mithril Knights Warrior's Guild

Pull out your pack and head on down to the Prancing Pony for some great Role Playing (try to stay in character)!

Postby Elbren » Wed Mar 28, 2001 7:37 am

Well, we have a Bard's Guild, (which I am in), and I see a Wizard's Guild being raised, so why not a Warrior's Guild?<BR><BR>I'm going to combine a few traditions from warrior societies for this Guild...<BR><BR>To apply, post your name, your lineage, and your personal warrior creed. Describe your weapon(s) and your armor. ONLY Middle Earth type weapons and armor are acceptable, (forget D&D, EQ type items!)<BR><BR>There will be several "Ranks" in the Guild:<BR><BR>Shield Warrior (awarded a shield brooch made of mithril and is akin to a "foot soldier" 500 posts or less)<BR><BR>Winged Knight (awarded a mithril winged helm and is a mounted warrior 501-1000 posts)<BR><BR>Battle Captain (awarded a mithril breastplate and gauntlets 1000-1499 posts)<BR>Battle Lord (awarded mithril greaves and vambraces 1500-1999 posts)<BR>Battle General (awarded mithril boots and bracers 2000-2499 posts)<BR><BR>Once you post here, I'll check back and post a response, awarding you what is appropriate for your rank, and then you can put in your signature something like:<BR><BR>Shield Warrior, The Mithril Knights (Warrior's Guild) or something like that <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> I'll make us a logo as well<BR><BR>I'll make a website for us later today where we can have character pics, lineage, and bios posted!

I'd like to join also, but what are lineage and creed exactly? (Forgive me: I'm Dutch<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>)<BR><BR>Also can you hold your message board alias, or do you have to come up with a new name??<BR><BR>How about those weapons?? Can you just think of a weapon or are there certain requirements??<BR><BR>This sounds like a good idea....

Eh, well in some Warrior societies, a Warrior had to memorize his family lineage and recite it before he/she was allowed to "become" a warrior. So, basically... tell ya what, I'll just post mine, how's that?

Out of curiosity - will this guild have any purpose, aside from thinking up titles to add to one's prestige? Not to say there's anything wrong with that. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>Erinhue's bardic guild will add much to the board with the festival: what will this add?<BR><BR>I'm thinking you could have tournaments. Other tournament threads have been done, more or less successfully, so I think it would work.<BR><BR>Aglanor - a "creed" is a statement of belief. It comes from the Latin "credo."<BR><BR>And did I mention that I want to join? Here's my application.<BR><BR>I am Freahelm, son of Fyrhelm of the sons of Eorl, leader of the Eotheod of old. I hail from Westfold of the plains of the Riddermark. <BR><BR>I bear the sword of my father, passed down many generations from the horde of Scatha, the worm, slain by Fram, my ancestor. I bear the spear, carved of the wood of the ash tree, and the sheild bearing the emblem of my people.<BR><BR>I wear the armour forged in the smithies of the Mark - a coat of mail and a strong helm of steel.<BR><BR>My battle cry and creed is thus: <i>"The axe for the necks of orcs, the sword for the hearts of men, and the horse and spear for all the enemies of Rohan!"</i><BR><BR>So, what do you say? Am I in?

Idirl enters the gathering of warriors feeling misplaced. She has not been a warrior at heart for too long but more out of necessity. <BR><BR><i>"Hail and well met to all gathered here."</i> she says.<BR><BR><i>"I am named after Idril Celebrindal and I am from LothLorién. My sword was forged in Valinor and was passed down from my father to me. It was used also by my husband for a time. It is named Silmar. <BR><BR>My creed is to live life to its fullest each day that you are given.<BR><BR>I was clothed in armour by the Lady Galadriel and Lord Celeborn.<BR><BR>Do I meet the standards of this guild?"</i><BR><BR>She kneels awaiting the decision of her qualifications.

I would like to add my request for entry into this Guild.<BR><BR>Alas, my lineage must remain a secret for now and I can merely confirm at this point that it is extremely distinguished. The name of Barad-dur is an adopted alias to conceal my true nature at this time.<BR><BR>My preferred weapon is the black mace and sable shield with no device upon it, in honour of the first and greatest Dark Lord.<BR>My armour is black adamant chain, forged in the hottest fires of Thangorodrim. My helm bears the snarling visage and dark spread wings of Ancalagon the Black, mightiest dragon of Arda.<BR><BR>To Elbren, I formally and humbly request the honour of joining the Warrior's Guild.

Freahelm, YES, we will have tournaments and my favorite: QUESTS!!!!!<BR><BR>I want to do some Quest threads where someone will act as (for lack of a better term) dungeon master, posting clues and hints and sort of guiding the adventure while the participants post their reactions/actions...<BR><BR>The quests will, of course, be Middle Earth related and we will take turns guiding them. The quests will not be limited to any one Age, (so we can adventure in all 4 Ages), and they will be given by "known" characters.<BR><BR>Use whatever name you like, mellyn!!

Freahelm, I welcome you heartily as your exploits are renowned throughout Middle Earth!! I hereby dub thee SHIELD WARRIOR of the MITHRIL KNIGHTS and gift you with this Mithril brooch in the shape of a shield, Wear it proudly, mellon!!<BR><BR>Idril, tis an honour to finally meet thee! I welcome thee to the MITHRIL KNIGHTS as SHIELD WARRIOR and gift you with this Mithril brooch in the shape of a shied. Wear it with honour!!<BR><BR>Barad-Dur, oh mystery one!! (hehe) You intrigue me with your request, as I had not thought to see one "of the Enemy" dubbed as a Mithril Knight. I shall grant thee membership pending the unraveling of your mystery, (I honestly had not given any thought to "enemy" flags applying to join!) I dub thee WINGED KNIGHT of the MITHRIL KNIGHTS, and gift you with this Mithril Brooch and Mithril Helm. May your mystery enlighten your path...<BR><BR>(PS Go to the Guild webpages to see the roster, if ya like!! When I get back from holiday next week, we can start our first quest, if you like, and by that time, the Bard's Guild Lord of Disrule Festival will be concluded, although I hate to miss that <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> )

This sound great, I too would like to join.<BR><BR>I am <b> Helazzar </b> son of a Black nuemenorian of noble birth, who's name has been erased from written record. My mother is Katereen Summerstorm of Mirkwood who is also of noble birth. Her father was one of the great Elf lords to enter ME from Valinor.<BR><BR>I have been an Assassin, thief and ranger, but at this time I am a humble warrior. I was born in Near Harad, for the most part I am a champion of what is good and right.<BR>I have many common weapons, but my weapons of choice are to fine long swords which were crafted in Valinor by his mothers father and were passed to Helazzar when he came of age, as was the mithral chaimail and leather armor. I am a houseless half elf.<BR>My creed is: <b> "To leave a friend on the feild of battle is dishonor, At all cost the weak, the young, the old and ladies of all kind must be defended for this is honorable, how ever the greatest honor of all is to lay down your life for another." </b><BR><BR>ok, am I in?

Meneltarma,daughter of Tarmon,, son of Borlas, second son of Beregond of Gondor, I welcome you to the Mithril Knights and award you this Mithril Brooch as indicative of your rank of SHIELD WARRIOR! Welcome!!<BR><BR>Helazzar son of Katereen Summerstorm, Peredhil and warrior, I welcome your application to the Mithril Knights Warrior's Guild as BATTLE CAPTAIN. To you I award the Mithril Brooch, Mithril Winged Helm, Mithril Breastplate, and Mithril Gauntlets. Ere you are accepted into the Guild, I need to know what banner you ally yourself with, if any.<BR><BR>We are now discussing, on the Guild's private boards on the Guild website, the Oath that is to be taken by the Guild members, for full acceptance into the Guild. Please email me for the password to get into the Guild House.<BR><BR>Our first quest will be next week, (when I get back from holiday), and will take place, I think, in the First Age of ME. In order to remain in the Guild, member's will have to participate in Guild Quests; not EVERY one, as I know we're all busy and some of us are in other threads at the present, but I think it would be fair to say that Guild members should go on a Guild Quest at least twice in a year's time. Fair?<BR><BR>
