Word aside: He shall be Known as Bloodaxe!

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

Ok.<BR><BR>What I am looking at doing is starting an RP that tells a tale of the beggining of Darins Life. Slightly before he was named Bloodaxe.<BR><BR>The time would be just after Gimli had taken Aglarond for his home. Darin then would be only 60 years old. In full working order, ie both eyes and full use of both hands.<BR><BR>any one interested let me know.<BR><BR>I will give more details if I get a responce!<BR><BR>Darin,<BR><BR><a target=new href="http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?catid=25&threadid=47899">http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?catid=25&threadid=47899</a>

Of course, SB wouldn't have been born yet, but I think I could come up with a character to fit. I'd like to join, if you'll have me.

Likewise, I’d be honoured to RP with you Darin. And I’m sure I can think of another character to play (maybe I could be a dwarf for a change…..).<BR>

DB, I'm bumping this 'word aside' thread for you, because it doesn't hurt to have it nearer the top of the heap.<BR><BR>Do you want character bios out of us at all? I see that you've started, but I'm still not sure what part to take. I'm still toying with the idea of a dwarf (a people about whom I know virtually nothing I hasten to add!)<BR><BR>Give me your thoughts, either here or by email and I will do my best to jump in to the tale.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Leoba, whatever you choose to write as will as always be brilliant but the idea of a Dwarf sounds good, you can never have to many Dwarves!!!!

OK to start.<BR>He is a male dwarf. very young for a dwarf, 30 years old. Just over 4 feet tall with a short brown beard. Handsome for a dwarf.<BR>He always wear green, green hood and cloak, with dark green boots.<BR>He is an aprentice stone carver, following in the traditions of his family. (He does'nt come from a high family). He does'nt want to be a stone carver and day dreams of being a heroic dwarf like Gimli. Ever since he came to Aglarond from Erebor 5 years ago, he has heard tales of the great Gimli.<BR><BR>Personality. Impetuous, rash, selfish, funny (typical teenager really!)He is popular amongst his peers, because of his rule breaking.<BR><BR>Darin, I'm not very knowledgable about dwarves, so if I have something wrong, let me know. His name is Khalin, son of Ghalin.<BR><BR>

Postby Marlin_Ironclaw » Sun May 19, 2002 1:10 pm

Hi, it’s Leoba here. Yes I know it doesn’t look much like me, shorter than usual, dressed in mail and with a beard. <BR><BR>I’ll post in my usual guise in a minute, just to prove it.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Anyway, I hope this character will suit: <BR><BR>---------------------------------<BR><b>Name</b> Marlin_Ironclaw<BR><b>Race</b> Dwarf<BR><b>Gender</b> Male<BR><b>Age</b> 182<BR><b>Height</b> small but perfectly formed (about 4’5”)<BR><b>Hair</b> long and wiry, it was once pure black, now tinged with flecks of white<BR><b>Eyes</b> reminiscent of highly polished jet; deep and unfathomable<BR><b>Status</b> eternally single; do you have any idea how difficult it is to find a Dwarvish woman?<BR><b>Occupation</b> highly-skilled metal-worker and warrior<BR><b>Weapons</b> axe and a short broad-sword, made by Telchar in the First Age and handed down his family from father to son.<BR><b>Personality</b> Typical Dwarvish attributes: stubborn, indomitable, brave in battle. Too old to get over his deep and abiding mistrust of Elves.<BR><b>Background</b> The only son of Morin, of Dáin Ironfoot’s people of the Iron Hills, Marlin was born in the year that Thráin II was imprisoned in Dol Guldur and the last of the seven Dwarven rings was lost (2845 of the 3rd Age). Now late middle-aged (equivalent to his mid 50s in modern human terms). His line could be traced back to the Dwarves of Nogrod in the Blue Mountains; his ancestor was one of the few Dwarves of that kingdom not slaughtered by the Elves. <BR><BR>He trained hard with axe and sword as was customary for his race but Marlin’s heart was always given to the love of metalwork. When he was 96 years of age, Marlin was one of the 500 of his kindred to accompany Dáin to Erebor to assist Thorin Oakenshield in the Battle of the Five Armies. He stood solidly by his lord in the press of battle, against the onslaught of the Orcs and wolves. The sturdy Dwarf ,whilst fighting off two Orc soldiers, was additionally attacked by a wolf, resulting in the loss of his left hand. However, the loss of a hand did not put an end to his usefulness in battle for he fought once more with Dáin, during the War of the Ring, in defence of Dale.<BR><BR>Dwarven smiths had replaced the missing hand with a claw of iron, thus enabling Marlin to continue his metalwork to some degree, using the claw as a vice. He increased in skill, producing not just mail of a quality not seen in many an age, but also objects of great beauty including a pair of fantastically carved ruby-set goblets and sword-hilts to suit the most beautiful of Elvish blades. It was this talent which caused Gimli to choose him as one the Dwarves brought south from Erebor to colonise Aglarond. <BR>

Alrighty then, Darin! This is still ‘Friend,’ just started a new account for ‘Gimli’.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> I’ll post for Gimli under this account, okay?<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I can write a bio for him if you like, but I don’t really think it’s necessary.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Darin, would it be confusing if I kept my normal sign in name? I have enough trouble signing out as it is without having to sign in and out for other names. For some reason, even when I log out, the next time I come on here I am still signed in <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>I'm a man in another RP at the moment and it is'nt too confusing (except when I get chatted up by young girls who think I am really a man...yes, that happened! But, I think she was about 12 <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>) But, I won't have that problem with you mature lot.<BR><BR>

Niniel*, I’m sure it won’t be a problem. I just fancied creating myself another username and I thought it might look a bit daft dragging a picture of Leoba around in my sig, when I’m posting as a dwarf.
