OOC:The Ulukai.(please read before posting!)

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

Postby Veanne » Fri Jul 12, 2002 9:08 am

The Ulukai is a jewel that holds a large amount of Melkor's power. Its kept in the Orc kingdom of Gundabad(where the misty mountains almost meet the grey mountains) and Veanne rules there.Who exactly she is is something that comes into the story later..(she's human)<BR>During the last alliance,Veanne sees her chance to seize power as Sauron and all the 'good guys' will be much weaker after this battle. But Sauron will find out about it and try to invade Gundabad.So will the White council,as they'll want to get to it before Sauron does. This will result in a three way battle for it,which should be lots of fun,I'm not sure how it will end.Obviously neither Sauron nor the White council got it or things would be a lot different.I'm leaning towards Veanne's sister Fania running off with it.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR>Anyway...take your time with this one..don't rush to the battles, and Belegur,please join<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0>

Who? Me? I am most honoured to be invited, my dear Veanne <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> We have discussed this before...and as I have said, I would love to contribute, but because of time issues we'll have to see...<BR><BR>Anyway...what I propose is this: we let this OOC thread run for a little while to see if anyone's interested...and also use it to develop ideas for the story. Then, if all goes well, you post the actual RP thread. If things work out good, I for one will be honoured to join <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Well since the idea was mostly yours...<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR>So far,Armenelos might be interested,and Fania is as well...I think waiting till we have more people and a basic storyline is a good idea<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>

hi, do you need any help from a grey elf?<BR><BR>there is a summary of my character <a target=new href="http://www.geocities.com/head_9/greyelves/elf01.html">here</a>. but i am changing some things. my mother is a character i made named Ilmarë, who is the sister of Ingwë, so i am half Vanyarin elf. if you have any questions let me know. keep in mind, i'm changing a lot of the story, so we'll see what happens.

Mithamarth seems like a good guy, and as one of Gil Galad's friends he probably would come into this story.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>I should probably post a characte sketch of Veanne,but I'm too lazy.Later,perhaps.

well, at the time of the last alliance, i am with Elrond in Imladris, because when Sauron attacked and destroyed Hollin, i ended up there.<BR><BR>what can happen, is, when Gil-galad's forces come and join with Elrond's to go south, i will stay behind. or i could stay with the last alliance (i had kind of a small role in the white council) and go with them.

Armenelos has conscripted me to help him <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR>I'm willing to play and help out in any way I can. <BR>I'm a Sindar from the 1st age.<BR>I need to read Unfinished Tales and Silmarillion again before I can start (take a week). For now, I'll just observe how things are headed

As Veanne has already said,Fania is her sister..though I don't know that yet.I've been imprisoned in a tower of Gundabad for years now,and am slightly insane.I'm very paranoid and unpredictable as the result of 5 years of torture(Veanne is a sadist) and I am likely to play a major role in getting rid of the ulukai.<BR>Thats all there is about me..I'm ready to start...

And I am that replacement!<BR><BR>Armenelos and I have discussed this, I will be playing myself. After my ship founders I am recovered on the shores of Lindon by the people of Gil-galad. I did not reveal my true name, calling myself Thurin.<BR><BR>I traveled to Rivendell with the peoples of Gil-galad where I met Mithamarth. I had first met and befriended Mithamarth in the First Age during his stay at Nargothrond prior to my capture in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. Mithamarth recognizes me and is aware of my true identity but does not reveal it.<BR><BR><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

Could you use an emissary form Harad? I have a character called Cam that would fit the part nicely.<BR><BR>Cam is a young nobleman form North-eastern Harad. His family is very wealthy and descends directly from the Black Numanoreans. They have sufficient influence that they can get even their youngest son, Cam, a decent diplomatic post. The reason that he got sent so far away is that he had some sleeping problem, never inclined to do it in his own bed, which caused a bit of a stir back home. He hates the cold and resents being stuck in what he calls a "barbaric backwater outhouse."<BR><BR>I've never used Cam before as I try to come up with someone new for every RP.<BR><BR>Interested? Please let me know.

That sounds good Armenelos. My character info can be found in the character archives if you wish to see it. Just do a search and you'll find it. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

Name: Lleonard, known as Leo.<BR>Male, human, 25 years old. <BR>A son of a blacksmith (apprentice to father).<BR>Description: six feet tall, slim build, brown eyes<BR>dark hair, wavy to shoulders.<BR>Personality: Impetuous, bored and carrying huge chip on his shoulder!<BR>He is from a poor but hard working background. <BR>Has a great interest in elves.<BR>Other details are in the first post.<BR><BR>He lives in a small village downstream from Imladris.<BR><BR>I have no idea where I'm going with this, but if he heads up to Rivendell, <BR>he could get there when the alliance is being formed. He would be happy to go along in a serving capacity if needed.

yeah, it can just only work with me and him alone, you will see, but maybe you can hook up with Istariquendi or Arwen#1, and maybe we can meet a little later in the story (as i'm sure we all will).

No problem <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>, to be quite honest I' not actually sure where my character is going yet! But, that is not unusual for me. Planning ahead is not my best feature, I'm more of a spur of the moment type of person. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR><BR><BR>

My compliments to all the members of this RP. I just got done reading through it and I must say it is one of the best RPs I've ever read. The plot is excellent as well as the characterization. <BR><BR>Keep up the good work!
