I know i am only most of the way through the Silmarrilion(sp?) but i had a good idea for a thread and i wondered if it was allowed to go ahead? I figureed it was a good idea and no one would mind if i kinda just twisted the book just a little<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>The Noldor attack the Gates of Morgoth and win through. Meanwhile the Dwarves adn some Men come in to help adn the Might and Threat of the North are finished, but Morgoth once again escapes through the back Gate that the Orc host for the Third Battle (i think it was the Third battle) came. It is further to the North and harder to find than the other. A company is chosen to hunt him down adn capture him, by order of the Valar. For they do not wish to kill him, even though Tulkas and Aule wish it. The Hunt begins adn hopefully someone else will help me do something with it.

Sorry, i am dyslexic(sp?) so my spelling and my typing isn't very good, but i thought no one would join. I don't care if you havn't read the Silmarillion or not, it is only loosly based on it anyway so you can get the idea as we go through. Morgoth was Sauron's master before he was defeated by the Valar. He created a huge tunnel network in the very North of Middle-Earth. So that is wear we will go, or we could go around the Mountains to the Side i am not sure yet.<BR>Post Bios please, hears mine:<BR>Name/race: Ruccus. I am of course a dwarf.<BR>Appearance: Short but sturdy and well built even for a dwarf. Leather underclothes and only a light dwarf mail without.<BR>Weapons: Twin, double headed battle-axes, throwing axes and throwing knives, a stiletto knife (for close combat) and a small dwarf bow.<BR>Personality: Quick to anger but always ready for a good laugh. Very defensive, especially on the behalf of friends. He is very wise, but a bit hotheaded and doesn’t always think thing through before he says or does things. Good to have in a hard place when you calm him down.<BR>Age: 763<BR>Other: He has had a very turbulent past. His family, his wife his daughter, his father, brother etc…were murdered by Orcs and Goblins when they attack his mine. He was a smith in the mine (he was also the chief armourer) and so was not allowed to fight the Orcs encase he was killed and the Dwarves could not make any more weapons. But the Orcs broke through and killed his family. He has always blamed himself for the death of his family that he has rarely been back to any mine since then (he was only 467) for the memory is still too painful.<BR>

Hey, does hat mean you and Raca are one and the same?! *returns hug*<BR>Boralf, read the Sillmarillion, it is a wicked book, but knida hard to get into but then it gets better.<BR><BR>I have a feeling that maybe we should start just after a battle at the Gates of Hell in the land of Morgoth. I have a feeling that he was defeated at this piont, so he should run away, because otherwise he goes back to prison, for ever. Which i don't really think he wanted to do so, he escapes out the back door.<BR>The Eagles who helped with the battle have scouted out the lands beyond the Iron Mountains and have brought news that their is a great figure, dark and terrible, moving a mirky darkness that he has woven about himself. He moves by night and evening, for he fears the Sun, but he fears the Moon too, for it is always watching the Earth, while the Sun looks everywhich way, but the Moon looks ever downwards.<BR>We know MOrgoth is terrible adn great, but much of his power is broken, so that Elves, Men and dwarves could capture him or kill him. The Valar try to stay Neutral in the affairs of Middle-Earth, but it is hard not to try and guide the company. Yavana (?) made much of what Morgoth destroyed so it is she who tries to help the company, although Aule, who is much praised by the Dwarves and the Noldor, does lend a hand occasionally.<BR> I don't think this really happened in the book, but i did say it was only loosly based on the book.

This is good. This means you have a reason for hunting him personally. You want to avenge your father's death. I am guessing you do not want to avenge your half-brother's death as he wasn't really the nicest of people after Morgoth corrupted him, to his own undoing adn folly?

Raca, woo hoo, great to see you!!!<BR><BR>Ok i'll have to invent a character <BR><BR>Bio:<BR>name: Angriefur (more commonly Boralf, from Ruccus and my early friendship)<BR>Race: Human, Blood line of Isil'dur, exiled himself because he could not follow his father who was a tyrant of a leader. and could not bear to inherit the position as king. <BR>weapons: Wicked shot with elven longbow, sword of his ancestors (liberated without question), and two dirks, one elvencraft and one dwarf made (by Ruccus).<BR>Personality, Noble, perservering, fair but easily annoyed. Likes to joke around but vicious temprement.

Right - I've done a bit 'o' thinkin', and it seems that the dates do kinda fit. Glorfindel - as you probably know - was an Elf-lord, one of the first-born. This means that he was there at virtually the very beginning of middle-Earth, and therefore it IS possible that by now he may have had a daughter. Bearing in mind, however, that this is a fictional situation - he was actually killed by a balrog!

Nice character B.<BR>I think i might start the IC thread as we have a few people to start. I don't know how we all get together, but i figure we could start at the very end of the battle and all the dead are being counted and the orcs are running away and people are trying to healed etc etc.<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-happy.gif"border=0>

Just a random post-in:<BR><BR>Dates do FIT for Glorfindel, but who would be mother? In all I have read (which albeit is not all of Tolkien's writings, but all the main ones [Sil, Hobbit, LoTR, Unfinished, Letters]) there was never mentioned a female character, as lover or wife, and Glorfindel, Prince of the House of the Golden-Haired, I just can't see having ilicit affairs, especially because Elves, far more than humans, downgrade that sort of thing.<BR><BR>On the other hand, I have a slight diversion from that in <i>Mirrorelf</i>. So I guess if you really wanted, you could be Glorfindel's daughter, but still not by blood(remember what I said above). I could probably work out a probable adoption story between Glorfindel and I, though, depending on how old you're supposed to be. <BR><BR>I honestly can't think of anyone else you could....but I'll check the books.<BR><BR>Tarien<BR>Just another Gondolindorian Blondey<BR><BR>P.S. Still checking books, no luck so far.....oh, right, what I'm editing thiss for.<BR><BR>Yes, Glorfindel was killed by a Valaraukar, but he returned(unlike Ecthelion of the Fountain) with the Valar on the ships of the Telari (think it was the Telari) for the War of Wrath, hence his role in <i>Mirrorelf</i>, a great but kinda weird story (he-he, had to put that in, because Mirrorelf is my thread! okay, I'm done now)<BR><BR>Firstborn Elf-maiden.<BR>Went to Valinor.<BR>So pretty.

Hey I wouldn't mind being Finrod Felagund. I'd love to do this in his perspective. <BR><BR><BR>Finrod Felagund: Son of Finarfin, half brother to Feanor, and brother to Fingolfin. <BR>Brother to Galadriel and Orodreth, Angrod, and Aegnor. Wisest, and calmest of all elves. Carries his elven sword, and his harp.
