Introducing Elau Avenster

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

Postby Eldfess » Sun Aug 19, 2001 7:52 pm

In this thread I am introducing Elau Avenster. She has an unorthodox past. She is half-elven. Her father was a Captain of Gondor and a close friend to the king. Her mother was murdered after Elau's birth. Her father went on a mission of revenge after leaving Elau at Gondor. However, he abandoned this to journey in a search for the Halls of Mandos after a vision of his wife, Elunlu, asked him. He was never heard from again and was presumed dead. Now Elau is taking up the mission of revenge.<BR><BR>The murder was commited by someone high up in the evil of the world. There should be some great opportunity for obstacles from such.<BR><BR>Also, I need companions-each with their own tale of heartache or thirst for revenge. Each with their own demons.

Hullo. Sounds like you've put some time into this. I'll be a companion if you want, but not yet. I've posted already in your story but I do not wish yet to become Elau's companion. I wish first to follow her a ways before meeting her face to face and siding with her. My character, who I actually haven't named yet, is also a half-elf from Rivendell (in the line of Thingol and Melian) and, if you want, knows of Elau's parents.<BR><BR>Erenduil

Welcome Eranduil and Undomiel.<BR><BR>Eranduil, that's great if you know Elau's parents or at least her mother. Right now I don't have much of a history of her mother. Her father has had some extensive story work done to him. (p.s. Cal Avenster failed, or felt he failed, Elunlu which caused her to die.)<BR><BR>

I was thinking maybe Lasara's father could have killed Elau's mother? If you think that would be cool.

I'd like to join you on your travel to Rivendell if you like to.<BR>You could meet a woman called Angwen on the way. She's small, dark-haired and has two tattoos on her cheeks. Her features are rather exotic, slightly eastern. She will look travelstained and is armed with a shortsword and shortbow. Though she is only human she can be your guide as she's been to Rivendell before and actually is on her way there to visit an old friend. How does that sound?

Welcome Canamarth, welcome other newcomers that haven't registered here. I wish you would.<BR><BR>That's great Canamarth. I'm glad that I'm getting warriors rather than a large group of wizards. It makes the battles more intense, I think, when there are physical boundaries on the players.<BR><BR>Undomiel, I don't know about that idea. Elunlu was murdered out of spite by a great darkness(p.s. if someone wants to play the great darkness I leave that to you) that wished to stop Avenster's mission. This evil power sent wargs to massacre her. Cal Avenster felt responsible because he wasn't there to protect her.<BR><i>This part of the story is old and already written</i><BR><BR>Avenster wasn't there because of his mission. When he heard about Elunlu, he did just what the evil wanted to do: he abandoned the mission. Because of this, the evil was left to grow in power. Elau now will go to Rivendell and recieve the same mission her father was sent on. <BR><i>This part of the story I'm working on</i><BR><BR>Undomiel, if you wouldn't mind the suggestion, perhaps your character could have some way of recieving certain skills of survival. Also, I would like to have some way of making her leaving irreversible. (accidentaly killing someone?)<BR><BR>Its at your discretion.

hi eldfess....i've already posted too. my char is a lady...she is human, and her mother was killed accidentally by an Elf of Lothlorien who took her to be part of a group of bandits. Her father was tortured and killed by Forces of Mordor. She travels mainly as a loner, never really joining with anyone, never really trusted by anyone. But she is not evil, she just doesn't trust many people. She will likely follow the group and help them if they choose to exact revenge.

That's cool, Eldfess. I didn't realize that this was something you'd already written and I'm flexible. Just tell me what you've got in mind. <BR><BR><i>Undomiel, if you wouldn't mind the suggestion, perhaps your character could have some way of recieving certain skills of survival. Also, I would like to have some way of making her leaving irreversible. (accidentaly killing someone?)</i><BR><BR>I'm not quite sure what you mean by that... Whose leaving irreversible? but I'm willing to go along with whatever.

Ok then, I'll join you once you're on the road. I don't want to be yet another cloaked woman rushing into the inn... <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <BR>As there seem to be a lot of those around in this story I can play a male character just as well. Would you prefer a warrior-like type (human) or a healer (half-elven)? <BR>Fully at your disposal, <BR>Canamarth, Maradir, or Daegon

Undomiel, I meant your character. Its up to you how you leave. I think, personally, that such a departure for your character should be irreversible. This could help build your character as a person. <BR><BR>For instance, why does she want to leave? at what level of hardship might she abandon the quest to return to the peace of home? what is the level of her survival?<BR><BR>Cannamarth, that's fine if you want to play a male. I, too, noticed the amount of female characters. I wouldn't mind if your character was a healer, as long as she wasn't arcane and could heal everything. If you could specialize in knowing what herbs heal and such and have a bit of magic to aid in the speed of healing that would be fine.<BR><BR>Undomiel, like I said its up to you. I will not tell you what to do, just try to feel your way through the story. This story is not written, but some of the history is written. Also I have a small framework(what I wrote above) but most of it will be posting by the seat of my pants.<BR><BR>Welcome Traveler. Welcome all. Welcome and well met.

Undomiel, I just read your last post! I love it!<BR>Tell me, did you get your father's sword before of after he turned evil? If it was before, it could have a few powers to aid. If it were evil, it could have evil properties to slowly corrupt your character. Either way, it poses interesting possibilities.

Thanks Eldfess! I respect your judgement because I have seen your writing here before and think it's really good! Anyway, yeah, I can do that. maybe I'll kill one of the myriad women in this story allready...(JK). I was thinking that he got the sword before he became evil but then used it to do some evil things and so when she uses it she will eventually and gradually turn evil as well. If you have any other ideas just let me know!

Ok, then Daegon Half-elven will join you sooner or later. He also does know the way to Rivendell and will be on his way there.

Postby Lissuin » Sat Aug 25, 2001 11:41 am

Hullo! you must know i've already posted my introduction, though i must say it was rather not to my liking. anyways my character, Lissuin, is passing through as you know. i just came from the Kingdom of Frandion. And i must say your title caught my eye.<BR> <BR>Well, i figure you should know a little about Lissuin. Lissiun is a little bit of a different type of elf. actually only half elf. Her father was of the direct line of Finwe and went over into the Grey Haven's on the very second trip it made. There he met Ilmare,maiden of Varda, and they had two twin girls, Lissuin and Nadeen. but Since they were half elf, half maia Manwe decided to send them back to Middle-Earth because of their parents un-blessed union. <BR><BR>Lissuin weilds the sword Dymer, the Fire Burner. She also is the keeper of the Jewel Ameria, which holds great power. Lissuin prefers to fight with Dymer though and rarely uses her powers. She owns really nothing but what she can carry and her horse Celedure.<BR><BR>anyways that's a very brief summary of Lissuin's history. Oh, and Lissuin might leave sometimes just for a bit. But she always comes back in a day or two.<BR><BR>

After all the fuss I've made... I'm really sorry. But I won't be able to join you at the moment. Too much work (in reality and on TORC - organizing a feast at The Merry Bowmen of Dale - you're all welcome; it starts September 1st). Hope to see you around. I might join you some time later.

I wrote to your thread on the first page I think, but I haven't been able to get online because the library is under construction. I would love to be in you story, maybe in you history if you'd fancy that.

This is good. We have a good amount of journeyers(and not all of them female<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>). Anyway, I don't know just exactly how many are with this group. Also, I would like to ask those that feel up to it if they would help in a secondary story with Kalovaru. <BR><BR>Kalovaru is half-elven. He was an advisor to the King of Gondor for a while. He was the close friend of Cal Avenster, Elau's father. They were working together on Cal's last mission. When Cal changed his mind to travel oversea's to try to reach Valinor he attempted to head him off. After a few years of ship-hopping in a fruitless search, the ship that he's on is destroyed in a storm. <BR><BR>Now he is attempting to reach the King of Gondor. He may try to complete the mission that was laid out before him and Cal. If this is the case, him and Elau can have a few clashes in trying to reach the same goal.<BR><BR>The other option is that he is enlisted by the King to retrieve Elau.

Heyhey, folks! I've already joined and posted, I'm the little unconcious elven girl. Please don't leave me to die?<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0> <BR> This girl doesn't have a name, or a past that she remembers, but she is a <i>leetle</i> bit strange. Sometimes I think she is overtaken by spirits, good or bad, whatever is called for. If you don't want me here, then don't worry, I think I'm going to killed meself off sometime in the near future of the story...we'll see what happens.

How 'bout the others leave you behind, accidentally, but my character can pick you up and take you along with him. He is the one who hasn't yet joined Elau's group, but is watching them and protecting them a little, when needed. (He's kind of like a guardian). Then while your unconcious girl is with him he can name her according to her <i>strangities</i>. Does that sound ok to everyone?<BR><BR>Erenduil<BR><BR>BTW - I haven't introduced my character by name yet and will not until he actually meets one of the people traveling with Elau, or, of course, if he meets Elau herself. I haven't chosen a name for him at all yet either so, gimme a little time, ok?

I'm glad you like it. I've posted again in the RP telling a little more about my character, who I've named Galirgond. Don't call him that in the story though, that's not the name he goes by. I believe I'm going to call him Gulodin, which means "the magic of silence". That is who he will introduce himself as when he picks up the currently unconcious elf-girl. I think that wolves should be the next thing to bother the group, although it shouldn't be until the next night. So, I think we should have a relatively uneventful next day, and then at night the wolves should attack. That's when Gulodin will pick up the girl and show his face for the first time in years. Is that good for everyone?<BR><BR>Erenduil

I think it would be rather cool if Tyelpanor knew what happened to Elau's father or mother or even something to that effect. It would make to story more intersting, and would explain how Tyelpanor knew Elau. Let me know if that's okay or not.

At this point, no one knows about the fire power thing-a-ma-bob yet. I'll bring it in some how.<BR><BR>Erenduil-Maybe your character could sense the power or something like see her use the "gift" or something. If you like that idea. It's an idea.
