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

Postby ElvenWanderer » Tue Jul 22, 2003 8:29 pm

this is the OOC thread for "A Quest for Justice" if you have any questions about the story, read the IC thread, and then post your questions here. Thanks!<BR><BR><BR>My character's Bio:<BR><BR>Name: Kyra<BR>Age: unknown<BR>Race: Half-Elf<BR>Gender: Female<BR>Hair Color: Black<BR>Eye Color: Grey<BR>Clothing: Black hooded traveling cloak lined with dark blue satin. Black long sleeved shirt with trailing sleeves. Black pants. Black leather boots that lace up to her knees. <BR>Weapons: Battle-Axe, magical wooden staff with a large white gem on top. <BR>Jewelry: plain gold ring. Golden stud earrings.<BR>Appearance: Kyra (pronounced kai-ruh) has midnight black hair down to a bit past her shoulders. Her hair is made up of thick, relaxed curls. Her eyes are grey, and their shade turns colors depending on her mood. She is fair skinned and thin. She almost never takes off her black traveling cloak. <BR>Lineage: Her father was a wizard, and her mother was an elf of Lothlorien. She inherited her father’s powers and her mother’s looks. <BR>History: Kyra was born and raised in Lorien. She left home when she was young to explore the earth. She became skilled in tracking and fighting. Eventually, she decided to settle down, so she built a huge fortress. It serves as an inn and tavern. She also enlisted the aid of humans as guards. Over time, she built up a small army. She lived peacefully in her fortress for years. She met a man named Xandin, who came asking for work. He was a hard worker, and quickly rode to become captain of the guard. They fell in love. One night, there was a problem with a band of orcs in a nearby town. Xandin went to help kill the orcs. Sadly, he was killed in battle. Kyra was devastated. She sat in her fortress that she had built up from the ground by herself, and cried. She almost never left her room. But one day, she decided to avenge him…<BR>

it takes place after the war of the ring. the fortress is near the border of Gondor. it is huge, and has over 10 floors to it. the fortress is made of black stone. (could you see that coming? lol). it serves as a tavern on the ground floor. Next up is the Item/Weapons shop. The next few floors up are for renting out to patrons. From the fifth (from ground) floor up is mostly the “homes” of the army and their families. Below ground is the treasury, the weaponry, training areas, storage rooms for food and ale, etc. the topmost floor is where Kyra’s room is (all the way at the end of a long, dim hallway), and the homes of the important soldiers. The army is made up mostly of wandering bands of humans that find the fortress and swear allegiance to Kyra. The floor directly below Kyra’s living quarters is a throne room type deal. It has a polished wooden floor, and tapestries of great battles and heroes on either wall. At the very end of the room, against the wall, is a large, black marble throne. This room is used for celebrations, for people who wish for an audience with Kyra, announcements, and other important events. There are six large windows on each side of the room, and the tapestries are in between. In front of each tapestry is a guard who is stationed there. The guards each have 6 hour shifts. Most of the guards are male, but there are a few exceptions. Those who wish for a job must talk to Kyra. The battlements of the fort are also protected by guards. Weekly supplies are sent to the fortress. Six guards accompany this small caravan to and from Minas Tirith. <BR><BR>hmm… anything else? <BR><BR>So far I’ve accommodated for at least two characters to join. One from the town who may have followed Kyra back to the fortress, and however many who were in the tavern. A male character may take the position of the guard who Kyra was talking to, or whatever else they see fit.<BR><BR>(and of course i'd love for you to join! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>)

hello. I was wondering if I could join.<BR><BR>Name: Tal Lykouleon<BR>Age: looks 14<BR>race: ice youko (ice spirit,demon,thing)<BR>hair: short, dark brown with a few silver streaks<BR>eyes: light blue (the black part (pupil?) of his eyes don't can't be seen because it's the same color as the rest of the eye.<BR>alliance: none as of now<BR>weapon: sword and a magical tattoe on his right wrist called the Elethide (spirit of illusion) which he can use to create an illusion around an enemy. His ice powers are also quite useful.<BR>personality: Tal's one of those, "He's really nice once you get to know him." kind of people. He's silent by nature, but you'd be surprised by all the things he thinks and doesn't say.<BR><BR>clothing: black buckle-up pants with multiple belts. A cream sleeveless top and a black leather (longsleeve) jacket that stops at around his rib cage. black gloves with the figners cut off and brown leather boots. he wraps bandages from his wrists to his elbow (for some odd reason)<BR><BR>Story: His real name is Lykouleon and he was a prince in the mountain civilization of ice youko. But his parents were assinated when he was very young and he was taken by mortals to grow up like a regular human being. Not so easy for him. Being different from most, he was harrassed, abused, even persecuted by many. He left and became a ranger, even with his young looks youko, like elves, are immortal. He changed his name to Tal. One unique thing about being an ice youko is when they cry. Their tears become tiny, glowing sphere-gems that are very rare and sought after by many. Some refer to it as glow-stone.<BR><BR>you like, ne?

<BR><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Ok my character info, <BR><BR>I'm still working on this so I might change some of it.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR><BR>Tishara Morena. Half-elven, half-human, her mother left her on the streets of Gondor to die when she was a baby but she was found and looked after by a mercenary who was living in Gondor at the time. When she was nine he left and she lived on the streets, killing and stealing just to stay alive. When she was twelve she left Gondor to avoid the soldiers and was travelling to Edoras when she was captured and tortured by a group of men wanting information about the mercenary who had saved her. <BR><BR>The men had another with them who was skilled in dark magic and he burnt symbols onto her skin that were used in spells to ensure she told the truth. She managed to escape and when she was sixteen, began training herself to use a sword and bow and arrows properly so she could have revenge on the men who had tortured her. She hunted and killed them all and has been travelling ever since in search for work.

I hope you don't mind if I join...<BR><BR>Name: Aranel<BR>Race: Half-elf<BR>Gender: Female<BR>Appearance: Aranel has dark brown eyes and dark brown hair, average length. This accompanied by her dark clothes and her not-so-fair elvish skin. She is half Easternling but has more of the look of her elvish mother than father.<BR>Clothing: She will be wearing a dark blue riding dress with long sleeves; she always conceals her left wrist, which has a brand on it. Her dress is cut down the middle, so she can ride properly, so she also wears black pants, a black cloak, and leather boots which come up to her knees<BR>Weapons: Aranel is a skilled archer, but she prefers her long sword. She has many daggers and knifes concealed within her clothes and saddle-this, because her mothers death.<BR>Personality: She seems quiet, if you don't know her. Mainly, she keeps to herself, rather thinking than speaking.<BR>Other: Aranel is often accompanied by black her horse, Nárie. <BR>History: {I usually never do history because I don't like to give too much of myself away but when I post, nothing much ever comes out, soo here we go.} Aranel's father was an Easterling, her mother, an elf of Rivendell. Her father gained many enemies when he married her mother and gained even more when he slaughtered a band of orcs, who trespassed on his land. Then one day, their tribe was ambushed and Aranel's parents were lost. To make a long story short, Aranel, her sister, and brother were sent to Gondor, but not before they had branded and 'E' on her wrist. Now she works as a soldier in Minas Tirith, she also wanders around periodically.<BR><BR>~Aranel<BR>

thanks for your prompt response, everyone. type of character? hmm... well, it's pretty much up to you. if you are good at being the bad guy, you can step in from watching Kyra in the store in the village. i don't know, just a thought. but whatever you feel is good, it's fine with me. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

<u>Name:</u>Dedrick<BR><BR><u>Age:</u> 31<BR><BR><u>Race:</u> Human<BR><BR><u>Gender:</u> Male<BR><BR><u>Hair Color:</u> dirty blonde<BR><BR><u>Eye Color:</u> hazel<BR><BR><u>Clothing:</u> He usually wears a linen tunic of some sort of color or with the white tree of Gondor upon it, having short sleeves with laces near the neck. He may have a leather vest over it. When at work, he wears a leather apron over his trousers. The trousers are of rawhide, resembling chaps. (Think A Knight's Tale) Of course, because of his trade, he has quite a few pairs of shoes, but he seems to prefer the sandal types when working and when out and about, he wears plain brown shoes. <BR><BR><u>Weapons:</u> He doesn't have much use for them at present, but if forced, he will use a knife. But do not be fooled, this cobbler is very resourceful. He can throw one of his cobbler hammers, or his pick. He will not hesitate to use anything around him if he can think of how.<BR><BR><u>Jewelry:</u> He wears a pendant around his neck with a turquoise stone inlaid in a moon shape.<BR><BR><u>Appearance:</u> Dedrick's hair is cut short, most of the time, but its waves do make him look rather handsome. (Think the Brad Pitt haircut from Meet Joe Black) His eyes are not particularly his best feature, but they are very expressive. He's used them to manipulate many a woman. Also, from all the work with his hands, they bear calluses and his forearms are well muscled. Standing at about 5'7, he is a bit short compared to most of them men around, namely the guards. His height has caused his insecurity to a point and he does have to compete for the women, but his earnings give him more to bargain with.<BR><BR><u>Personality:</u> He's very greedy for the reasons mentioned above. He works a lot of hours, and could be termed a workaholic. Dedrick can be humorous though, when in private. Otherwise, he is polite and friendly to make a sale and meet a potential customer, but he almost seems impatient all the time, not really paying attention to them.<BR>He is not stupid. He might seem so to project the simple cobbler image, but he is very clever. He also knows a lot of people due to his trade. He has had a few lovers, but never settled down or had a longterm relationship. This is because, he has some pretty weird tendencies when he's privately involved with women. His loneliness will make him almost do anything for a woman if she will stay, but in the end if it is not more advantageous to himself, he will not go through with it.<BR><BR><u>Lineage:</u> His mother was a woman of Rohan. She came to Gondor to try new things and to find a husband. Soon, she married his father and they had three children.<BR><BR><u>History:</u>He grew up in Minas Tirith. His family was not one of the wealthiest but they provided for him well enough. He became apprenticed to the cobbler nearby at the age of 14. He worked until he could do it on his own and he left Gondor and his family at the age of 19. He searched in some of the other cities and towns for a job, but none of them needed his services. He heard of the fortress that Lady Kyra was building and quickly made his way there. Sure enough, he could make a living there. So, Dedrick set up his shop and continued serving the people while he lived there.<BR><BR>He met Rilka when he was 23. They slowly became friends and then transitioned into a relationship. But when she learned of how he was, she saw him as horrible and ugly. Well, he couldn't exactly let her walk away and tell the others about him. He'd never meet anyone else again. So he quietly made sure that she drowned in the nearby stream one day. No one knew any better, they just thought it was sad and didn't know why she had gone missing. Perhaps she had ran from her parents?<BR><BR>Years later, when he was 27, Dedrick hired Latrenne on to help keep his shop tidy and organize things and deal with orders. She was a very useful woman. As time went on, they spent more time with each other and one night he made the mistake of letting her see what he was really like. She, too, rejected him and a few weeks later, she was trampled by a bovine. No one thought anything of it, just that it was tragic that someone so young....<BR><BR>He first met Mira when she came to him with Lady Kyra's shoes to be mended. He had struck up a conversation with her and they had become friends over time. Now, it had been almost 3 years since the day and she proved to be different than the others. She had even asked him to help her. Of course, he didn't know what all she had in mind, but he was willing to go along with it so long as no one suspected him and she wasn't overly stupid. They had been keeping their relationship discreet so that no one could trace her back to him. It was getting harder, though, with all of the new guards being hired...
