Ok, here are the stat-diddly-ats. Sorry, flanders is invading... Ok...<BR>Name: Maili...pronounced Mily.<BR>Race: Halfling<BR>Occupation: Petty Thief, though she prefers to call herself a property relocater, insisting that it is much more polite.<BR>Other: Short, has bushy brown hair, blue eyes, wear a too-long cape, an old skirt, and a dirty tunic. She has a small short sword, several daggers, and a seemingly endless supply of matches and scented candles which she insists upon taking everywhere. Ok...that's about all.

Hey Maldeloth, I said that I would post on the IC thread but never did, sorry. I'll give you my Bio. It's a little different then the one on "Dreams...". Here.<BR><BR>Name: Ariem<BR>Race: Human<BR>Gender: Female<BR>Occupation: Thief, Dancer, Spy, Acrobat, Assassin, Guide, Gambler <BR>Age: About fifteen<BR>Height: Almost 4'10<BR>Clothing: Low-cut short-sleeve white blouse, Knee-langht red skirt<BR>Appearance: Beautiful, Pale skin, Full red lips, Delicate<BR>Hair: Silver, Tight ringlets, Reaches the middle of her skirt<BR>Eyes: Huge, Slightly slanted, Thickly-lashed, Change color with whatever mood she is in<BR>Weapons: Blow pipe w/ poisoned darts, Many daggers hidden on her person<BR>Signature Weapon: A throwing knife in the shape of a Star, can be thrown around corners and hits with deadly results, edges poisoned<BR>History: Mother was a noblewoman, Father was a mercenary, Mother died when she was born, Father died in front of her when she was eight<BR>Personality: Fun-loving, Clever, Funny, Amazingly fast, Cat-like grace, Overly clever<BR>Animals: Kitten named Gypsy, black w/ silver eyes, can talk to Ariem, understands all languages, No horse (Ariem can run just as fast, if not faster, on foot and she makes a lot less noise)<BR><BR>Ariem knows the back way out of every city in ME and uses them regularly. She has a quick temper but is fast to forgive and even faster to laugh about it. To her life is a game, a game which she plays well. She hasn't had the best background with the law and has seem the inside of many jails. Because of which she has developed a talent of picking locks. She is a skilled knife-thrower and can use her blow pipe and Star, with deadly accuracy. Ariem is an orphans with no known relations and no friends (Besides Gypsy) but many enemies. The reason why she doesn’t have any friends isn't because she isn't nice or fun to be around, the reason is because she never stays in one place for a long time. (Mainly because she is wanted in every known city)<BR><BR>Sorry if that's too much. You don't have to read it all if you don't want to.<BR><BR>-Marie<BR>

Name: Faran<BR>Race: Elf<BR>Gender: Male<BR>Age: 25 in human years.<BR>Look: Medium length brown hair; emerald green eyes; tall, almost 7'; <BR>Occupation: Ranger of Ithilien<BR>Skills: Bow; Sword fighting; hand combat.<BR>Weapons: Elven bow; sword inhereted from his grandmother; <BR>History: Faran's mother left for the Undying Lands and left him with his father, who raised him to be a soldier. At the age of 10 he was sent to a master of the fighting arts in Gondor for training. When he returned, his father was preparing for his journey over the seas no longer able to bear life without his wife. Upon his departure he bequeathed to his son all his material possesions and gave him the sword "Tincalenmir" which means "Sparkeling Green Jewel." His father told him that, upon his birth, his grandmother Sindaavariel renamed the sword for his eyes, and had and emerald that had been passed down in their family for centuries and possibly had magical properties. She then told his father that when he left for the Undying Lands, he was to give Faran this sword. Faran later grew up to be a general in the elven armies of Mirkwood, and was involved in the battle of Crimson Moor. He has never receaved a fatal wound in battle or elsewhere, and it seemed that, sometimes, the sword had a will of its own.

I would really like to join your Role play, however i feel there maybe an over load on female characters so I'm thinking that maybe i could play a male (mmm a challenge me thinks) or like a bird or something! Tell me if you think either of these ideas are possible.

Thank you all for telling something about your characters. And I think your right serafina! Alot of female roles.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>Well if you want to play a male part that's okay with me , but you don't have to if you don't want to.<BR><BR>If we start it might be a bit weird if you all show up together at the same time. So we have to be careful with that.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Thanks again for responding.Let's make a nice story of this.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR>

I'd like to join in, but I still have a few bugs to work out in my character. Here's what I have, though:<BR>Name: Minuial<BR>Race: Elf<BR>Gender: female<BR>Age: Unknown, but young for an elf<BR>Hair: Deep gold and cut shorter than is customary, very straight<BR>Eyes: Bright blue<BR>Height: Tall, around 5'9<BR>Clothing: Favours long, sweeping dresses in many different colors. Travelling/fighting clothes are green, brown, and black. Her cloak is pine green with her family's crest embroidered on the back. (This used to belong to her mother)<BR>Weapons: A bow given to her by her cousin, Legolas, a longknife, and sometimes a sword.<BR>Personality: Kind, but quick-tempered. She laughs easily, and cries seldom.<BR>History: Her mother, Alqualoth, was from Rivendell, and her father, Huandor was the elder brother of Thranduil. She was raised in Tatharond, her father's hall that lay south of his brother's. They kept great hunting dogs there, and the hounds of Tatharond were renowned throughout Rhovannion. She had three brothers: Halohtar, Thoronhen, and Gilthol. She was the youngest and only daughter. When she was very young, the forces of Dol Guldur attacked her home and all her family were slain. She herself recieved a poisoned wound, which was long left untreated. Though the wound later healed, the poison had destroyed all memory she had of her family. She was taken in by a family of Dale and she stayed with them for sixteen years. Eventually, strange dreams led her to Mirkwood where she was taken in by her uncle, Thranduil. Slowly she has begun to remember her past, and to search for her eldest brother, Halohtar, who reportedly survived the attack.<BR>**<BR>Ok, thats it! I honestly didn't think it would be this long!

My character is...:<BR><BR>Name: Silvaria (named after mother)<BR>Race: half human half elf<BR>Gender: Female<BR>Clothing: Faded green tunic that's two long for her, and fits her like a small dress, with slits in the side so she can ride. Wears a silvery neclace with a small clear jewel in the shape of a star on it that was her mothers.<BR>Hair: Curley brown, and down to her waist. She lets it fall free because her human family (that she lived with) always wanted her to keep it pinned up, but it felt constricting to her, and she didnt like her human relatives, and their superior manners.<BR>Eyes: piercing green<BR>Weapons: a silver dagger given to her by dwarves when she helped two of them find their way to shelter in a blizzard, and a long bow favored by the elves.<BR>Personality: Likes to be rebelious, carrys secrets of her past in her heart, not knowing who to trust and tell them to, likes to be different, and wants to find out more about her mom's side of the family<BR>History (as far as she has revealed): she was left in the possestion of her fathers sister's family when she was one. She rode off from them when she was nine, leaving no sign of her departure. They searched for one day, and then decided she was dead. She learned how to fend for her self very quickly, and how to hunt and cook. She has been wandering ever since.<BR>Others: Has a horse she named Letherias (or Leth for short). He's black, and his back is sprinkled with white spots. Has white socks, a white star on his forehead, and a black mane and tail. He is her only companion since she left when she was nine, and she tends to talk to him alot.

I have a question - When I'm at my mom's house (about every other week), I tend to get kicked off of the computer alot. I know this isn't really fair to the other members, so I came up with a solution. Is it possible that my character could be the 'scout'? That way, I wouldn't have to be posting <i>all</i> the time, if I went off to scout ahead.

Thank you Arwen! That's great.are you sure your okay with it?<BR>And Serafina? I don't really want to chose for you.. It's fine by me if you rather stay a woman, cause two men is alright. But if you think it's better you can change it.<BR><BR>Darkmoon, that is fine by me. I'm not online that much either you know. I am very busy with school, but it's okay if you don't post as often as we do.Besides,you don't have to answer to a post right away,you can always think about it first and then think of what you can answer. That counts for everybody here.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> But if you have a great idea that pops up your mind ofcourse you can post it right away!<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Darkmoon, I saw you already posted. That is great,thank you. I cannot answer immediately cause I have to go to work. But I will soon, perhaps tonight.<BR>Could everybody wait with posting until I have answered? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Hope that that's not too much to ask? Well that'll be great.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0>

Ello!<BR>I would like to join your humble RP...Is that alright with you?<BR>Name: Jesumil, Or Jess<BR>Race: Human <BR>Gender:Male (I thought I would challenge myself, for I usually play a female hobbit!)<BR>Occupation: Jess is but a lad of 12, but he is a troublemaker and a runaway from his fair city<BR>Appearance: Instead of having the common blonde or brown hair, Jess has flaming red locks that hang in strands over the tops of his eyes. He has fair skin and deep blue eyes, appears to be almost elvish looking. Usually wears murky brown clothes and a dirty green cloak covered in patches and rips.<BR>Weapons/skills:He fights with his own fists, as he has no knowledge of any other weapon. <BR>Personality: Very stubborn, yet clever. Also somewhat clumsy and loud, but keen when nescesary. <BR>Bio: Growing up on the streets at night, he's not very trustworthy and enjoys a good fight. He often drinks and gambles with other street rats like himself, but never pays what he owes. He is known to steal goods. His father is a drunk and his mother died very young, soon after his birth. He ran away to beat the life he had lived. He wanted to do something right and honourable for once. <BR><BR>Sound okay? If you accept me, I'd probably run into you as you're leaving your campsite. <BR>~Ezzy

HIya Esmerelda!<BR>Thank you for playing a male character<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>!<BR>I must say I enjoyed reading about your character. It's very original!Great<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>! I really like it...could you please wait before you step in the story,cause when everybody steps in at the same time there suddenly will be a lot of people in a normally deserted place <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>, not very logical<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>.<BR>So I suggest, your character can come in the story when the character before you has met the others and the story can continue.Well, you have to see for yourself what's best to do.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Crimson Moor is another RP that the character Faran is involved in. It's not anything Tolkien had to do with. There's not much to the story yet, but if you check it out, you'll have a general idea as to what he's talking about.<BR><BR>Link to Crimson Moor:<BR><a target=new href="https://http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?catid=55&threadid=55530">https://http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?catid=55&threadid=55530</a>
