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

Postby Vingilot » Mon Mar 03, 2003 6:52 pm

Check out our story at <a target=new href="http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?catid=25&threadid=63572">Mad Kings & Scheming Lords</a><BR><BR>Our current cast of characters includes:<BR><BR>Name: Finnerin (Finn)<BR>Played by: Vingilot<BR>Race: Men<BR>Birthplace: Rohan<BR>Age: Thirties<BR>Physical description: Tall and broad, dark hair, and green eyes. Weathered from the sun with tough, calloused farmers hands. He is not what anyone would call handsome, but he has a commanding presence that makes him get noticed (not always a good thing!).<BR>Other: Son of Fingorath (the slain high councilor of the king of Rohan). He was second in command of the King's Guard and turned down a promotion to Captain of that select group (reasons unknown, yet ). He left the King's Guard at that point to become a farmer of spices and healing herbs. The high quality of his wares have made him a popular merchant across Rohan. He has a wife and two children. Since he left the King's Guard he normally carries no noticeable weapons besides a staff.<BR><BR>Name: Aerona<BR>Played by: MeganBaggins<BR>Race: Men<BR>Birthplace: Rohan<BR>Age: Twenties<BR>Physical description: Long dark blonde hair, fair skin, and grey/blue eyes. 5’ 3” tall.<BR>Other: Wears a brown peasant dress, and grey cloak, does not carry any weapons *thus far*. There is a ‘sad air’ about her (why that is you will find out later).<BR><BR>Name: Annûn<BR>Played by: Ithilien<BR>Race: Men<BR>Birthplace: Ithilien, Gondor<BR>Age: unknown<BR>Physical description: Tall, dark hair, grey eyes, wears usually black/blue clotes.<BR>Other: Skillful archer, carries bow and arrows when traveling. A supporter of Eldarion, from the house of Faramir. Currently living in Minas Tirith, on her father's behalf.<BR><BR>Name: Flanna<BR>Played by: Aranel_Nilhuanwen<BR>Race: Men, with a little elvish blood<BR>Birthplace: Gondor<BR>Age: unknown<BR>Physical description: Dark brown hair, and dark brown eyes. Stands at about 5'8. Her figure is curvy. She often wears a dark cloak to conceal herself. Wearing a dark blue dress, which is covered by a black cloak.<BR>Other: A bit on the mysterious side. While she has been living in Minas Tirith nearly all her life, not many people have ever seen her before. She resides in an old cottage with a few other people, who come and go as they wish.<BR><BR>Name: Calem<BR>Played by: Jebulon<BR>Race: Men<BR>Birthplace: Gondor<BR>Age: Fifties<BR>Physical description: Dark brown hair, wind burned face, fierce piercing grey eyes, tall for the race of men, in good health and very physically capable.<BR>Other: Once a soldier for Gondor, Calem now raises horses with his 3 sons on the edges of Pelennor Fields where he trades and sells horses to the armies in Minas Tirith as well as some trading with Rohan. He was once married, but his wife was killed giving birth to his youngest son. <BR><BR><BR><BR>We have begun this story with two entirely separate story lines (one in Rohan and the second in Gondor). Our intention is to at some point bring these lines together either as friends collaborating or foes in battle. There is also potential for a third story line involving an evil force in the White Mountains.<BR><BR>Working Title: Mad Kings & Scheming Lords<BR><BR>Time period: Fourth Age, year 128<BR><BR>Location: Generally Gondor and Rohan, possibly involving Mordor, Rhun, and Harad.<BR><BR>State of Gondor: Eldarion died in an unfortunate accident a year ago after a short reign. His eldest son, Carillion mysteriously disappeared immediately prior to the King’s untimely demise leaving Eldarion's second son, Lochion as interim ruler until Carillion is either found or pronounced dead. Impressions of the new ruler portray him as somewhat odd, given to tantrums, and a few even suspect he is a bit mad. Lochion has strained relations with Rohan by imposing high tariffs on imports and imposing a strict watch along the border. Suspicions are swirling as to whether Eldarion’s death and eldest sons disappearance are coincidence or contrived. Few believe Lochion capable of such planning on his own. Lochion’s advisors have circulated the idea that Rohan could be responsible in an attempt to annex Gondor. The army has been ordered to ready its self and conscriptions have begun. Word has also been received that men from Harad and Rhun have joined forces and have been repopulating Mordor.<BR><BR>State of Rohan: Elledon, son of Elfwine is an ageing yet still very capable king highly respected by his people. Citizens of Rohan are enjoying the most profitable and stable times their realm has ever known despite the recent headaches imposed by the Mad King of Gondor. However, Elledon’s high councilor and prior Captain of the Kings Guard, Fingorath has just been murdered and his home burned. Initial findings point to assassins from Gondor, though Elledon is slow to take such evidence at face value. To add to concerns, there have recently been reports of kidnappings and stolen livestock from villages bordering the White Mountains. Scouts sent into the mountains have found nothing so far. Elledon has ordered his forces prepared out of uncertainty of Lochion’s state of mind as well as the new potential threat from Rhun and Mordor.<BR><BR>Of Elves and other folk: As the age of Men continues elves, dwarves, and hobbits are becoming a rarity. Some small parties still visit with King Elledon in Rohan and did with King Eldarion in Gondor until his untimely death. In keeping with his odd reputation, Lochion's first decree was to ban all such visits and forbid any such visitors from passing through the border guards and entering Gondor. As for evil races such as orcs, trolls and such, they have all but disappeared with the passing of the Ring of Power. However, the recent problems along the Rohan side of the White Mountains has sparked rumors of a small horde somewhere high up in the mountain peaks.<BR><BR>On Use of Magic: The power of the old magic is dwindling. As a result, there will be no powerful wizards or magical creatures as playable characters in this story. A few simple tricks are the most anyone will be allowed.<BR><BR><BR>The way I am leaning right now is that either the mad King of Gondor got rid of his brother and is trying to pick a fight with Rohan, or the leader of the evil bunch in the White Mountains is setting them both up against each other in an effort to pick up the pieces, or the coalition in Mordor is playing the same game.<BR><BR>I will be playing Fingorath’s son Finnerin (Finn) and following the Rohan plot. Other character possibilities are:<BR><BR>Rohan:<BR>Soldier, Kings Guard, citizen from one the affected border towns, elf or dwarf recently banned from Gondor (not many of these around though)<BR><BR>Gondor:<BR>Lochion supporter, Eldarion supporter searching for Carillion, conscript, border guard<BR><BR>IMPORTANT NOTE 1: Please do not reveal any more than necessary about your character in stats type messages. Discovering info about my party members on the fly is exciting to me. It is ok to post anything that would be obvious about your character at a first meeting (ex. physical description, visible weapons, notable personality characteristics such as an annoying laugh). However, keep things to yourself that would not be easily revealed until the time is right (ex. don't reveal that you keep a knife in your boot until you need it in battle, or that your char is prone to seizures, or is a compulsive liar).<BR><BR>So, anyone interested? Please feed me any ideas, suggestions you may have.

If you insist upon violating the courtsey protocols of this forum, by reserving the right to kill off the characters of other people then I don't think you are going to get much response, not from any serious RPer here. <BR><BR>Most characters carry the history of each thread with the character. Many have been built up over a period of years and very few are going to want that character killed by someone else. That sort of thing is generally not done.<BR><BR>I am not certain but I also think that is in violation of the guidelines, have you read them?

erinhue, I am so glad you pointed that out to me (note I changed the message above <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif"border=0> ). As someone relatively new to the RP board here I did not think of that. My intention was to provide something a little different by adding that realism to the RP. I was not intending to kill off someone elses character because I did not like them, but was thinking more of people writing their own characters out for the dramatic effect of losing a great hero (ie. as in the story of Turin Turambar. My intentions were good, but obviously my implementation was awful. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif"border=0> My mind was so wrapped around this particular story that I failed to consider characters that have existed for many other tales. Again I apologize, I think this could be a good story so I hope it doesn't die out! I believe the actual rule for the board is not to kill another persons character, which I never intended to do. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Thanks again erinhue.

I do understand what you're trying to do and that could be a good thing. I think that you should let a little of the story out on the board. Write an opening for the story and that will help to attract posters. At the end add a note( you can edit it out later) to have people see the OOC first because you want to try something new.<BR>In the OOC you can layout your plan and then people can perhaps create a character for the story that could be killed off if necessary. <BR><BR>I have worked hard on the character of Erinhue and am in the process of evolving him a bit. I would have a fit if someone were to kill him off. On the other hand I have Farn sometime Master Squire to the Captain of the Swan Knights. I've killed Farn a couple of times and I wouldn't minde too much if someone were to kill him in a thread EXCEPT for the fact that would in effect put me out of the thread and if it was good I wouldn't like that very much<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>There is an announcement in the Green Dragon that gives some suggestions on how to get a thread started. I wrote it and hope it will help you. There are a few folk around here that think I might have some skill at RP Bright Blessings<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0>

Vingilot, this sounds really cool. May I join? I will use (if allowed in, that is) a character different then my usual RP person, because this is set in a different time then she is.<BR><BR>So, here is my Bio for this RP.<BR><BR>Name: Aerona <BR>Race: Men<BR>Age: around twenty<BR>Country of residence: Rohan<BR>Appearance: long dark blonde hair, fair skin, and grey/blue eyes. 5’ 3” tall.<BR>Clothing/weapons: Wears a brown peasant dress, and grey cloak, does not carry any weapons *thus far*<BR>Noticeable traits: There is a ‘sad air’ about her (why that is you will find out later).<BR><BR>Note: can die if need be <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Anything else you need to know?<BR>If you don’t want me in I'll understand. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Well, I'm here too. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR><BR>I don't yet have the all the layouts of the character I'll play, but I'm sure of this so far:<BR><BR>Name:Annûn<BR>Race: Men<BR>Birthplace: Ithilien, Gondor<BR>Others: Female. Tall, dark hair, grey eyes, wears usually black/blue clotes. Skillful archer, carries bow and arrows when traveling.<BR>She'll probably be the descendant of a supporter of Eldarion, from the house of Faramir,<u>if possible</u>. Currently living in Minas Tirith, on her father's behalf, maybe to "investigate" Carillion's disappearance?<BR><BR>What do you think, Ving?<BR><BR>I'll keep adding to the plot when I think of something worthy. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR><BR><BR><BR>

Welcome Megan and Ithy! All comers are welcome here and your characters sound perfect. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>If you haven't seen it yet, I started the RP thread. Feel free to put up an intro post. <BR><BR>Megan, feel free to work Aerona into the story I started with my char Finn, or come from a different angle if you want. The plot is very loose at this point so feel free to take liberties. You can introduce our characters to each other if you want. Have fun! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> BTW, feel free to call me Ving if you want. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Ithy, since you are in Gondor, you are on your own until more people join. Go ahead and make a first post though if you want. It will help generate interest in the Gondor story. I am pretty much going to let you run that side of the plot if that's okay. Hopefully others will read our posts and get interested! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR><BR>Edit: I just realized I haven't posted anything about my char in this thread! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif"border=0> I will work on a little write up this afternoon!

Ithy, remember that it is possible that Lochion (or someone pulling his strings) is behind the disappearance of Carillion. If that is the case, digging into Carillion's where abouts could get you into trouble, which could be what you are after. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-devil.gif"border=0><BR><BR>As promised, my character:<BR><BR>Name: Finnerin (Finn)<BR><BR>Location: Rohan<BR><BR>Physical description: In his thirties, tall and broad, dark hair, and green eyes. He is not what you would call handsome, but he has a charisma that attracts people (not always a good thing!).<BR><BR>Other: Son of Fingorath (the slain high councilor of the king of Rohan). He was second in command of the King's Guard and turned down a promotion to Captain of that select group (reasons unknown, yet <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-devil.gif"border=0>). He left the King's Guard at that point to become a farmer of spices and healing herbs. The high quality of his wares have made him a popular merchant across Rohan. He has a wife and two children.

Your posts look great you two! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Megan, Aerona lives in a border village near the White Mountains correct? Her husband (and horses! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> ) were taken by the four men. Are these from the group that is hiding up in the mountains? Also, Finn is in the Capital city of Edoras, are you going to come there?<BR><BR>Ithy, if you want I could write for a different character in Gondor to give you some company until others join? If you girls think that is the best thing to do, I don't mind writing it. Let me know! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Also, any ideas on how to get a few more people in here? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif"border=0>

Ving: <i>Yes</i>, Aerona will be comeing to Edoras, probably in my next post.<BR><i>Yes</i> Aerona comes from a border village by the white mountains. and<i>Yes</i>, her husband and horses are gone (talk about a bad day! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0>) She does not know who took her husband, but we can safely say that the group of theives was from the mountains.<BR><BR>Anything more you need to know? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR><BR>Hmmm...yes...we must think of a way to get peeps in here, but also make sure that they are good RPers, and not One-line posters.<BR><BR>*thinking*

Nithelm, you are certainly welcome. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> If you have read our in character posts so far you kind of have a feel for how we are beginning this thing. We have two seperate story lines in development. Either one of your characters would be fine depending on which storyline you want to become a part of. Pick which one you want to be a part of choose your corresponding character. Thanks for your interest and have fun! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Since you are new I recommend you read the rules for posting here if you haven't already.

I believe I will join you in Gondor. Okay here is my bio...<BR><BR>Name: Flanna<BR>Race: Mainly of Gondor blood, but she does have a little elvish blood in her as well.<BR>Home: She is currently living in Minas Tirith.<BR>Appearance: She has dark brown hair, and dark brown eyes. She stands at about 5'8. Her figure is curvy. She often wares a dark cloak to conceal herself. At the moment, she will be wearing a dark blue dress, which is covered by a black cloak. (I think it will be nighttime when I post.)<BR>Other: She is a bit on the mysterious side. While she has been living in Minas Tirith nearly all her life not many people have ever seen her before. She resides in an old cottage with a few other people, who come and go as they wish.<BR><BR>I hope that’s otay.

Aranel, that sounds great. Whenever you are ready go ahead and write yourself into the Gondor story. Ithy's character is the only other one there right now so you two can work out any questions/issues you have together.<BR><BR>Ithy, looks like I don't need to write for another char after all! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Aranel is going to join you so that should work until more people join. Also, I am not sure where Nithelm is going to start so you may get another person! <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>

Megan, I think I am going to go ahead and have Finn make the trip to the bordertown of Belhaven. I will then find a reason to bring him back to Edoras with news for the king. This will eat up some of the time it will take for you to get Aerona there as well. Then we can finally meet up and decide where to go from there.<BR><BR>Aranel and Nithelm, get your posts up there so I can see where that story is going! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0> My curiosity is getting the better of me! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>We have a great start everyone. I will be updating the first post in this thread with our current cast and other info to try and draw more people in. Please check it out for accuracy. If you have any suggestions let me know.<BR><BR>I am also thinking of changing the title to Mad Kings and Hidden Thieves. What do you think about that?

Sounds good Ving!<BR><BR>Aerona is leaving in five days, and then she still has the journey to Edoras. <BR>After that she will be in town for about two weeks, soo we have plenty of time to meet them up.<BR><BR><BR>How long would you guess that the journey from Aerona's town (hmm...I need to name her town...) to Edoras would take? <BR><BR>Well, gotta run!

Megan, I am going to take about a week to send Finn to Belhaven, snoop around, get in trouble, and return to Edoras with news for the King. I will be accomplishing all this in my next post. You should probably be there when Finn gets back. So, how about your next post takes place in Edoras? I could even set up an introduction at the end of my next post (hopefully tonight! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0> ). Sound good? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>
