OOC: The Prophecy

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

Postby Silwen » Wed Oct 23, 2002 3:45 am

"The Prophecy" of Galadriel speaks of the Foundling of Gondor, a person without a past in the Third Age, who will always be on the search for who s/he is. Through hardship s/he will eventually find the truth, and it is only Galadriel who may be able to help. <BR><BR>The story continues from where I left off in the RP "Quest For the Forgotten Lands", (I am returning from the Lonely Mountain to Lothlórien and, finally, to Gondor) but it is not necessary for other players to know the previous RP unless they are interested (also my writing there is the way I intend to keep it here). Since that RP was heading in a direction not quite to my liking, I left and wanted to start my own. I will post a number of rules that all players should obey in order to allow for good progress of the story. <BR><BR>New players are welcome as well as experienced ones, of course. Mainly I hope to find people interested in good writing and complex characters who are not all too perfect, but realistic. <BR><BR>Please post your character's bio here before entering the story.<BR><BR><b>Currently active players:</b><BR><BR>Silwen<BR>NewZealand<BR>Meluivain<BR>Nimrodel 89<BR>Lady Aremin<BR><BR><b>We need new members! Please post here if you would like to join. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0></b>

Plans for the new RP<BR><BR>(For me):<BR>- Omniscient narrator interludes to introduce new episodes (to make sure we get on)<BR>- Begin with the end of the story to make sure we get there eventually and everyone knows where we’re heading<BR>- Mind historical „facts"!<BR>- Follow the map<BR>- Have an idea of how long it will take to travel to certain places<BR>- My main personal feat is to reveal Hitharien’s past and identity<BR><BR>Rules:<BR>- Historical facts<BR>- Language (no slang or dialect that didn’t exist in Middle-earth)<BR>- If you leave, write yourself out of the RP or tell someone else to do so in your stead<BR>- Submit a bio of your character(s) in the OOC-thread<BR>- No one-line posts, but short posts are all right<BR>- Stick to the narrative situation, please (here: third person or even omniscient narrator)

I thought it could be roughly when Gollum escapes from Mirkwood, or did you have something different in mind?

That's perfect, I hadn't thought about it yet. Need to do some more research on this then. Please let me know if I get anything wrong.<BR>BTW, I have just posted my first message for the RP beginning with the eventual end of the story. Next I'll post the end of our old RP because that is where we begin. I am looking forward to a lot of good writing <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>!

Yey! A new player! Great, of course you can join, Adramir; your bio sounds good to me. As to how to enter the story: either you can meet me on the way to Lórien or meet Lindonbayne before she catches up with me. You can start right away as long as you write where you are exactly. I am not too far from the Lonely Mountain since I have just left it. Maybe I can meet you near Mirkwood?

Since I have my horse with me, I guess I will not pass through Mirkwood. Instead I hope to follow the river east of the forest to move south. I don't have teh map with me right here, so I'll give you more accurate details on Tuesday or so.

Great! I've found the OOC thread! (It's Afteryule_Elf, for those that haven't read the story thread.)<BR>Ok, my stupid varsity e-mail hasn't yet recieved my bio, but I made two knew characters. I'll put the bios in as soon as the e-mail comes through. (I knew I should have saved it to disc, dammit!) My characters can come in at Lothlorien, cos Afteryule Elf hasn't a clue where you guys have gone anyway. Not that that matters, cos I like my knew characters. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Feanim will probably be the one I'll keep to, but you guys can help me decide. Feanim is a guy - challenge for a girl to role-play as a guy, but that should be fun. I'll be back when the bios come through.......

A guy would be great. I was thinking we had too many women around. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR>I have changed my mind about Hitharien's course: She was to pass Mirkwood as I said above, but something got in her way - namely Orcs. She is injured and her horse is carrying her through Mirkwood now. I hope one of you or a Wood Elf will find me there (hint, hint). That will make it much easier to meet up with you. Characters do strange things - the story just changed of its own accord. It wasn't my intention at all!

I've noticed that too, Lindonbayne. Could never figure that out myself, most LoTR fans i've met(off torc, mind you) have been guys, infact i've on'y met 1 female fan and she doesn't LOVE LoTR like me.<BR><BR>As for the Council of Elrond thing, that would work. I think i might FINALLY enter in the RP, once Lindonbayne gets to Mirkwood. I could be meeting with Thranduil when you enter, etc,etc.

Name: Feanim <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>Gender: Male<BR>Race: Elf<BR>Appearance: Long, dark brown hair; green eyes; fair skin; tall<BR>Weapons: Likes the bow and arrow, carries two daggers with him in case of emergencies<BR>Age: +- 500 years<BR>Character: Quiet spoken and thoughtful – tends to ponder on things for ages. A wonderer of Aman who came across the sea in search of adventure and discovery. Honest, tranquil, controlled and level-headed. At the same time, doesn’t have much experience with evil (been in Aman all his life – only now come to middle earth). May seem intimidating because of his quiet, solitary attitude.<BR><BR>Name: Nimloth<BR>Gender: Female<BR>Race: Elf<BR>Appearance: Long, black hair; blue eyes; fair skin; short for an elf…… much like a human’s height<BR>Weapons: Carries a long sword and a dagger<BR>Age: +- 250 years<BR>Character: Sister to Feanim. Eager and alive – much like a sparkplug<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>! Followed Feanim in search of wild adventures. Naive, childishly eager to fight and rid the world of evil. Like Feanim, doesn’t have a lot of experience fighting evil. Is an fast learner, witty, and occasionally flirtatious without meaning to be. Feanim often has to get her out of trouble. (Man, this elf could cause some disturbance in this adventure! She sounds as troublesome as Pippin!)<BR>

Ok curveball,<BR>I guess that i could be in Lothlorien instead of Mirkwood. Or i could be travelling from Mirkwood TO Lothlorien. That way i could meet up with you guys because i want to post, i've been following the RP thread though. Once a proper entrance presents itself i'll write myself in. Ok<BR><BR> Bye<BR> ~Adramir~<BR>

Sorry, Adramir. I didn't realize..... You can meet us anywhere in Mirkwood - on the way to Lothlorien. I read your bio... are you a Wood Elf? If you are, then you can meet us anywhere in Mirkwood. You dwell at Rivendell, so you could even be delivering some message to Loth lorien, and you bump into us on the way.<BR>I'm sorry I stole your entry though..... <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0>
