Calling all Ring Bearers! Prepare your Rings for Battle! The Rings you have aquired from<a target=new href="http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?catid=37&threadid=49731"> The Rings Guild</a> now can show their full power! Post your character profiles here and when there are enough Ring Bearers the Battle thread will be made. The Rings Guild does not permit intense Ring Battles so here is were they are to be held. Read the rules and guidelines below so that you know how to wield your Ring's power properly.<BR><BR><u><b>Rules and Guidelines</b></u><BR><BR>1) <a target=new href="http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?catid=25&threadid=54648&ann=1">The Rules and Guidelines</a> of this forum must be followed.<BR>2) Ringbearers may only have one Ring, however if needed, they may use or borrow Rings with the Ringbearers permission. No one may have the same exact Ring!<BR>3) No one may kill or take controll over another character or his/her ring. No one can have a ring of ultimate power, meaning a ring bearer can only use the power assigned to that ring.<BR>4) If a ring bearer tries to exceed his/her rings power the master ring bearers can take the ring away.<BR>5) When posting in the RP thread make sure you use **********RING ACTION*********** before you post what the ring is doing and ********** END RING ACTION*********** after you post what the ring is doing. This way the readers will know when you are using the ring and when you are not.<BR><BR>These rules are derived from the rules at <a target=new href="http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?catid=37&threadid=49731">The Rings Guild.</a> Stop by there to aquire a ring and then come here to use it in battle.<BR><BR><u><b>Character Profiles</b></u><BR><BR>Name: Ancalagon<BR>Age: 170,500<BR>Race: Uruloki (Fire Serpants)<BR>Gender: Male<BR>Name of Ring: The Death Ring of Lost Souls<BR>Rings Elementel Power: Gathering dead and wondering souls and binding their wills under the power of the ring.<BR>Side: Evil<BR>Weapons: His own Teeth and Claws, His Tail and Wings, breathing fire and ice, as well as the Dark Magic taught to him by Melkor<BR>Skills: Tracking, Commanding armies, Torturing, Dark Magic<BR>Appearance: Gargantuan, Black scales covering entire body, razor sharp claws and teeth, long tail, massive wing span.<BR>History: Was born in the deep vaults of Angband and was taught Dark Magic by his master Melkor and his father Glaurung.

Well, I'll try to express some rules, but then again I was never one for making rules...<BR><BR>Of course, you'll have to accept the TOS, and you should read the announcements at the top of the Prancing Pony. This goes for all who are newbies to the RP forum.<BR><BR>Now for the specific stuff. First of all, before entering this, the Ringbearer should figure out the limits of their Ring, what powers it has. Without set limits, we will certainly get god-like characters which spoil the fun for everyone. <BR><BR>For example, my Ring, Faernys is the embodiment of the White Phoenix, my companion. It is what connects us, and allows me to draw forth some of the Phoenix's power such as healing and control of flames. Also, within it is an influence over illusion, allowing me to make images, not real mind you, of certain things. This allows me to create things in the minds of others though they are not truly real.<BR><BR>By setting these kind of parameters, we can put a reign on the power of these Rings and prevent the presence of all powerful Ring Lords.<BR><BR>Also, you must not take control of another person's character or Ring without the person's permission.<BR><BR>That's all I could come up with for now.

Thank you Istari, for your help. I've been trying the draw up some rules and things but I want to get them just right before I post them.<BR><BR>Maybe we might need to have each character describe the powers of their ring. That way limits can be set.

Players should declare their powers here before entering battles, or maybe in another place just for a reference. I assume this will be reserved for battles since we already kind-of roleplay in the Guild thread. also, do we want to start a "sides" thing. Dark vs. Light etc.? and nwe powers for rings come with training and victory right, possably pending approval from holders of Master Rings? anyway, ideas, ideas. here we go...<BR>___________________________________________________________________________<BR><BR>Walk the paths of the Wind<BR>Weilder of the Air Ring of Pathless Travel

Yes this thread will be pacifically for the ring battles only. I think that it should be Dark rings against Light rings. Everyone should state which side they wish to be on, Dark or Light or Neutral. The ring battle will gain experience for your rings. With the experience comes new and greater powers that will be bestowed on the Rings by the master rings.<BR><BR>I'm going to need some help getting a list of ring power that can be learned. Actually I'll need three lists, one for Light rings, Dark rings, and then one for Neutral rings.<BR>

But how would you define 'good' and 'evil'? 'cause not all who wield Dark rings are evil and vice-versa. Or is it a Light rings vs. Dark rings vs. Neutral thing?<BR><BR>Sky

All the RIng bearers will have to state which side they are on. Everyone needs to post the character profiles here, in this form.<BR><BR>Name:<BR>Age:<BR>Race:<BR>Name of Ring:<BR>Rings Elemental Power:<BR>Side: <i>Choose Either Good, Evil or Nuetral</i><BR>Steed: <i>If you have one</i><BR>Weapon:<BR>Secondary Weapon: <i>If you have one</i><BR>Skills:<BR>Appearance: <i>Meaning what your character looks like</i><BR>History: <i>Meaning where your character came from</i><BR>Other: <i>Anything I haven't meantioned that you feel is important</i>

Sky: 'Light' vs. 'Dark' doesn't work because there are "Light" and "Dark" Rings. Good, Evil, or Neutral sounds alright. Hmm, we could go with themed alliances (Gondor, Rohan, Mordor, Lonely Mountain...). just ideas.<BR>Oh, and Ancalagon:<BR>Name: Wind Walker<BR>Age: unknown as of yet, need to look at Dwarven ageing rates<BR>Race: Dwarf<BR>Name of Ring: Air Ring of Pathless Travel<BR>Rings Elemental Power: Can cause 'paths' to be made/lost/change.

All right, well we've come up with a few Rules, though we might have to come up with others, such as how to enter the battle and such. I'll have to edit the first posts to advertise the War in the Guild. Perhaps we'll attract more members there... We shoudl be able to start soon.

I have been really busy lately and haven't been able to maintain this OOC, and I probably won't be able to mantain the RP either. Could one of the experienced Ring Bearers start the RP thread? Like Istari. That way this can get going.

Actually, I think it will be better if we refer the people to this thread instead of cluttering up the RP with Rules and Regulations. I'll try my best with the RP, Ancalagon, yet is there a certain place you want this to happen at? It is your idea, so I guess it's your descision. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Can't wait!

She's a pacifist. <BR>Secondary Weapon: A formidable beak and talons for defense purposes only.<BR>Skills: Knows her way in the woods (tracking, wilderness survival, tree-climbing, etc.)and is an expert on the uses of plants. Her shapeshifting skills are limited to birds, hence the name she took(meaning "Bird" in Quenya). Her preferred form is that of a macaw or another parrot. Can communicate with birds. Can be an excellent spy in the form of a small songbird.<BR>Appearance: Always a bird of some sort. She can no longer take human form. Generally maintains the form of a hyacinth macaw with unusually deep blue feathers.<BR>History: Was once a human of the Southlands but learned of a magic rite to change herself into a shapeshifter. Since she was young, impulsive, and had her head in the clouds at the time, she hurried to learn the spell, thinking little of the consequences. Once she finally thought herself capable and had begun the rite, she botched it at a critical point and she was irrevocably changed. This is why she can only change into birds, never back into a human, yet retains her human mind and memories and the ability to speak. In her fomer life she was a daughter of the chief gardener at a wealthy estate. Her father took her with him every day and she loved to help him with small tasks when she was little, and became his assistant at the age of fourteen. To this day she still maintains a love of growing things in the woods, the wilds, and in gardens and conservatories. Once changed, though, she found that she could not return home, so she began to wander Middle-earth and test her abilities.<BR><BR>--Aiwe

Hello fellow Ringbearers! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> In memory of Ancalagon here is my profile:<BR><BR><b>Name:</b> Amanvilyaien<BR><b>Age:</b> unknown<BR><b>Race:</b> Elf<BR><b>Gender:</b> female<BR><b>Name of Ring:</b> Zeniphyr- Life Ring of the Singing Heart<BR><b>Rings Elemental Power:</b> has the ability to shape objects and events that bring complete and utter peace and content to those whom the bearer indicates<BR><b>Side:</b> Good<BR><b>Weapons:</b> a quiver and bow and a hunting knife; though she doesn't carry one, she can use a sword when needed.<BR><b>Skills:</b> experienced healer under the direction of Lord Elrond in Rivendell; excellent (and deadly) aim; an experienced traveler, she is good at tracking and disguising herself to unfriendly eyes.<BR><b>Appearance:</b> Knee-length raven hair, usually swept up in the hood of her dark green, travel-worn cloak. She has green eyes that vary in shade by mood, and pale, flawless skin. She wears a simple brown tunic and black leggings, along with knee-high leather boots. Around her waist is a belt where she carries her knife and a pouch that holds her money and various herbs and elixirs of healing virtue.<BR><b>History:</b> Amanvilyaien is an Elf maiden born of Nilvandel and Findon. They are distant relatives of the Lord Elrond. She spent most of her time learning the properties of Elvish medicine-she was perhaps the brightest in her class, but all her life she had felt a voice inside, calling her to travel abroad. After her first history lesson, she decided that she wanted to visit the places she heard of in her classes. When she grew older and had spent some time as a healer in Imladris, she took leave of her parents and of the valley of Imladris. She now travels far and wide, exploring mountains, forests, and riverbanks. She keeps records of the people that she meets and places she has been.<BR><BR>Evenstar_of_Imladris

Mae govannen, dear ringbearers!<BR>In memory of Ancalagon, I present my profile:<BR>Name: Parm of Imladris<BR>Age: unknown<BR>Race: Quasi-istari<BR>Gender: male<BR>Name of Ring: - Life Ring of the Healing Word<BR>Rings Elemental Power: Has the power to take the spoken,<BR>lyric word and combined with music, whether by voice or<BR>instrument, can effect degrees of healing and helping.<BR>It has not yet been tested as an actual means to bring about<BR>physical healing, but its latent powers are still untapped.<BR>Side: Good<BR>Weapons: Parm carries a special staff given to him in Valinor,<BR>both as a reminder of his special mission and heritage. It<BR>is made of a special wood, hard as iron, light as a willow limb.<BR>It is capped with mithril, etched with the Bard's guild symbol.<BR>Skills: A scribe and poet, he speaks the elven tongues as well<BR>as Westron.<BR>Appearance: About 178 cms. (5' 11"<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0>, with snow-white hair and<BR>beard. His eyes are sky-blue, and his face is old, but lightly<BR>wrinkled. He wears a creamy-white gown with cowl, belted <BR>by leather and silver thongs. He carries a pack with a special<BR>instrument from a far-off land, and always has inks, parchments,<BR>and quills and nibs. He also carries little "nibbles" of things...<BR>and is very fond of coffee.<BR>History: A foundling, raised by the elves of Imladris, but is the<BR>child of a horribly dark secret: Saruman's desires reached out<BR>to embrace the human women around him. He managed to<BR>arrange means to get rid of these women, but Parm's mother,<BR>escaped, found a husband of Rohirric birth, and lived away<BR>from others, until, at last they were found by marauding orcs.<BR>When the orcs came to slay the young child, Parm gave off<BR>a cry like music and glowed with brilliant white. Terrified the orcs<BR>left the babe to die in the elements. Wandering elves, drawn to<BR>the spot, found the child, brought him to Imladris, and Parm's<BR>life there began. He married Aravel, daughter of an elf-lord, and<BR>decided to raise other foundlings: Arahn, Tinula, Valaniel.<BR>Parm has become a Master Bard.

Hello fellow ringbearers. In memory of Ancalagon_the_Black, here is my profile.<BR><BR>Name: Dimamarthiel<BR>Age: Unknown<BR>Race: Elf<BR>Gender: Female<BR>Name of Ring: The Moon Ring of Healing Forgiveness<BR>Rings Elemental Power: The ring has the ability to soothe a troubled soul and help them to forgive themselves and those around them.<BR>Side: Good<BR>Weapons: A Galadrim bow and quiver<BR>Skills: The art of healing<BR>Appearance: Tall and slender. Medium dark brown hair and sky blue eyes. She usually wears a tunic and loose pants with boots to the knees.<BR>History: In the days that the Teleri Elves arrived at the strands of Eldamar, Dimamarthiel, daughter of the Noldor met Lord Iaurgwe of the Teleri. With the friendship that grew between the Teleri and the Noldor, Dima and Iaurgwe fell in love, married and lived in bliss with his kin. The years stretched on and on and nothing marred their happiness. Eventually a male child graced their lives. They named him Olwe, in honor of their beloved Lord Olwe, prince of Alqualonde. The young Olwe grew in the favor of his parents, and his mother delighted in him. He worked with his father in the building of their beautiful white ships. Life couldn't have been better. But as usually happens when things are good they didn't realize that doom was getting ready to rear it's ugly head.<BR> <BR>Feanor came and tried to convince the Teleri to go after Morgoth with him and to lend the Noldor their ships. The Teleri refused and in the battle that followed Dima's husband and son were among the Teleri killed. Dima could find no comfort with her husband's people as they blamed her for she was a Noldor. So she left with the house of Fingolfin and afer many desperate times they reached Middle Earth. Dima found no solace with her kin and she left to wander Middle Earth alone. In the latter years the only place she was comfortable at was Rivendell. Here she could almost forget her pain. <BR> <BR>Dima is a master bard now.<BR>
