True Love's Quest II: OOC

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

Postby Lindaranel » Sat Nov 08, 2003 11:35 am

This RP is a continuation of another thread, True Love's Quest. This new thread is starting because we would like new people to join, because most of the other people in the old thread had to leave. To give you some background, here is how the first post went:<BR><BR><i>When Vanyarra was born, her parents knew that she would be as beautiful as the dawn. That is why they named her Vanyarra, which means beautiful dawn. Her Aunt, Nahta, was so jealous because her own daughter was not as pretty as Vanyarra. So Nahta cursed Vanyarra’s beauty and made it so that that was all men could see, except her true love. Nahta also put a longing in Vanyarra’s heart for one to love her and one for her to love.<BR><BR>Vanyarra has waited so long for true love to come to her, so have her parents. They push for her to go to balls, they push for her to go on dates, they push for almost anything you can imaging. All of her life, men have been attracted to her beauty, but they all were so caught up in her beauty that they didn’t get to know her. Vanyarra longed so much for men to be attracted to her rather than just her looks. Every night, in bed, Vanyarra would cry herself to sleep, and every day that longing that Nahta put in her heart increased.<BR><BR>* * * * * *<BR><BR>Tonight was another one of those nights that Vanyarra dreaded. She was being pampered, dressed in her best clothes, and then she was pushed out the door to go to another ball. Her mother gave her a good luck kiss on the cheek as Vanyarra mounted her white mare Losse, although Vanyarra knew that no luck could help her find her true love.<BR><BR>As she traveled through the evening alone, Vanyarra started tearing. Why do I have to be so beautiful? Many women would do anything for beauty of mine, but I would do anything just to have people look at me for who I am. She thought.<BR><BR>She pulled up to the mansion, she saw many eager faces. Her beauty, she knew, was known throughout the country, and that made her hate balls even more. She dismounted, the moon gleaming in her light brown hair, and took the arm of a smiling escort and sighed, saying to herself, “Here it goes...again…”</i><BR><BR>So Vanyarra went to the ball and found her "true love." Although he wasn't really her true love, but Vanyarra didn't know that. Michael(Vanyarra's supposed true love) was called off to war and was taken prisoner so Vanyarra and a group of friends went to resue him. Later they found out that he didn't have to go to war and he wasn't taken prisoner. He was really the leader of an assasin group and he already had a fiancee. Vanyarra wanted to hunt him down and get revenge. Then they came to this town and called off the chase and this is where the story begins. <BR><BR>Please skim through the last page and read the last post so you can be aquainted to what is happening. I'm thinking that they can hear that a group of monsters is ravenging the northern part of Gondor and it turns out that they're led by Vanyarra's evil aunt Nahta.

hey! Remember me? I can see you trying to smile while twitching right now.<BR><BR>Name: Aeran. Pronounce like Aaron. Short for Aerandir Calafalas<BR><BR>Age: 23<BR><BR>Gender: Male<BR><BR>Appearance: Very elf-like. Including his slightly long blonde hair. He has a tattoo of a dragon coiling around his left arm with its head resting on the back of his hand.<BR><BR>History: Much to his familys despair, he became a bounty hunter. Not the kind that assasinates people, the kind that goes on revenge quests, rescue missions, and missions to retrieve stolen items. Anything as long as its done for good, not evil. For some reason, his entire family hated his decision, and forbid him to come back to that house again. The only one who stuck up for him was his brother, who was his best friend. His brother said that if they kicked him out, then he would go too. They thought he was just trying to get him back and wouldn't really go, but in the morning, he was gone. He had run away to work in Calembal. He worked at a bar called the Eagles Perch. Where he fell in love with an elf maiden. Though she didn't even know he was there. Sadly, some people came, obviously her old friends, some new, and they left. Soon, another man came to the bar. Killing many customers, and killing the brother of the bounty hunter. The bounty hunter was on his way to visit his friend, and he saw this happen. His back slumped against the wall outside and he was crying. Seeing the man and his gang run out, he got a good look at what they looked like, and also heard the killers name, and locked them in his memory. The bartender was a dear friend of the boy, and he was also the bartenders star worker. The bartender hired the bounty hunter to get back at the man, Michael. Its his job, but this time its personal.

<i>enters the thread with a flourish</i><BR><BR>See my good friend, I told you you could count on me. <BR><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-shocked.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><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-shocked.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><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-shocked.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Well, I plan on playing my same chara but just for any new peeps who join I will post her bio anyway. <BR><BR>Name: Eärwen Nénharma <BR>Race: Mirkwood Elf<BR>Gender: female<BR>Eyes: jeweled teal<BR>Hair: long,curly, deep brown<BR>Height: 5'9" <BR>Clothing: usually wears a long red gown but when traveling she wears black leggings, black tunic with silver leaves embroidered on it, a dark green cloak, and knee high riding boots<BR>Personality: Eärwen is extremely nice, but as she was brought up learning weaponry she also has quite a temper when unleashed. Usually quiet and shy,but only because it was expected of her. Quite friendly unless given a reason not to be.<BR>Occupation: Niece of King Thuranduil, cousin of Legolas Greenleaf.<BR>History: Eärwen has always lived the way everyone else wanted her too. SHe was never able to live her ideals or give her opinions. So she stayed quietly in the backround and did what was required of her; until two weeks before her 995th birthday when she was told she'd have an arranged marriage with one of the many men of the court. That was the last straw for Eärwen, she'd done everything ever asked of her but was now told she couldn't even choose the man she'd spend the rest of her immortal life with.That night she gathered up some of her belongings, retrieved her horse from the stables and ran away from home. <BR>While partly running away from life at court,she's also (unaware to her) looking for someone who will love her and not just because they have to. <BR><BR><BR><BR>Nice to see you again <b>Marshie</b>. I like your chara, it seems very interesting. <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-tongue.gif"border=0> Just as a quick side note, as long as it's okay with <b>Lindaranel</b>, I plan on having Eärwen's family interfere more in this thread (for more info read through the first thread or email me for the complete story). Well, I'll see you all soon.<BR><BR><b>Edit</b><BR><BR>Do you wnat me to still play Amras too??

YAY!!! I'm glad you are back and i'm soo glad to see a new face (even though this is online, so i have no clue what you look like!) Aranel: It's fine if Earwen's family plays more of a role in this story too. If you don't mind, could you play Amras. I could play him some too, but it would be more realistic, since he is going to be Vanyarra's true love.<BR><BR>I'll put the IC thread up as soon as we get like two or three new people.

Postby Lady_Aremin » Tue Nov 11, 2003 3:28 pm

Hey can I join?<BR><BR>Full Name: Aremin Lalaith<BR>History: Noble elven maiden of Lothlorien.<BR>Lineage: Her father was Elroden, the little known younger brother of Elrond and Elros. When Elros chose to be of the race of men, Elroden chose to stay with Elrond and High Kind Gil-galad at Lindon and then fought in the War of the Last Alliance. He later traveled to Lorien, met Illuin, an elven maiden, wed her, and Aremin was born to them in lll 239. Elroden remained in Lothlorien, but was killed a few years after Aremin's birth in a scruffle with roving Orcs. Illuin died of heartbreak, and Aremin was left to Galadriel and the people of Lorien for her care.<BR>Appearance: Golden brown hair, the threads of gold bright and bold (no rhyme intended lol), and her eyes are a deep royal blue, but have gold streaks threading through them. her skin is fair, but has a golden hue, which makes her a shade or to darker than most elves. slim and tall. her golden luminescence is stated in her name> lalaith is sindarin for golden.<BR>Personality: usually thoughtful, outgoing, and alive with happiness. she rarely shows emotion, as it is with most elves. she is slow to anger, and her temper is a mountain of fury, but she is just as quick to cool. is constantly in search of the light and good of the world, and in search of a love of her own.<BR>Clothing: a silk or linen dress of either gold, dark blue, white, or silver. usually wears a gold cirlet, but sometimes changes that for a silver circlet. always carries an elven sword, though she cares not for war and killing. traveling clothes: black breeches, red tunic with a mallorn tree of Lorien on the front in gold, golden cape and black riding boots<BR><BR><BR><BR>ooc-Whew! Thats a lot but my cousin made it up for me and I thought this character sounded good. I ask to join, and believe me, you DON"T have to read all of the above lol.

May I join?<BR><BR><b>Name:</b> Sèvi<BR><BR><b>Age:</b> 15 years old by human standards.<BR><BR><b>Gender:</b> Female<BR><BR><b>Race:</b> Elf<BR><BR><b>Hair:</b> Dirty blond, cut short<BR><BR><b>Eyes:</b> Violet, but she is blind so they have an opaque film over them<BR><BR><b>Skin tone:</b> Very light tan<BR><BR><b>Siblings:</b> Has a brother, Terri<BR><BR><b>Appearance:</b> Her attire is that of an elvish boy. She wears long brown trousers, high worn brown boots, a dark green tunic, leather jerkin, and gray elvish cloak. She has a bow, but since she is blind she actually only has it for looks most of the time. He weapons of choice are two long fine elvish daggers, with pearl handles and set with sapphires in the hilt. She never carries too much money with her, as it attracts thieves. She also carries a long staff made from the wood of a tree from the golden wood. She uses it to find her way on her travels, and as another means of protection. She wears a long green cloak, with a deep hood, so that she can hide her face. When she doesn’t mind people knowing that she is blind, she wears a bandage over her eyes and keeps the hood down sometimes. Most of the time though, she is able to prevent people from knowing that she is blind. Many people find it odd to see her with her hood up indoors, but she doesn’t care.<BR><BR><b>Personality:</b> She is very bitter about her blindness, and is new to the whole concept, because she has only been blind for about four or five months. She doesn’t like the way most people act when they find out she is blind, and hates being treated as if she needs taking care of. She is very independent, and hates asking for help. She hardly ever lets her emotions show, and keeps her cool when other people panic. She doesn’t really trust anyone, but can be extremely loyal to those who DO earn her trust<BR><BR><b>Other:</b> Though she has only been blind for a few months, she has found that her senses have become much more sensitive, and that she can hear things that a very large majority of elves cannot. When she fights, she prefers to put her opponents into darkness, as it gives her the upper hand. She is very good at memorizing information quickly, as she has to memorize room layouts and numbers of steps from one place to another, without having to think about it. She is very mature for her age in many ways.<BR>

See with both charas knowing eachother, then they'll be able to know who has what job. And with Amras' job being to capture Earwen.....see I knew you'd get it.<BR><BR>Course, now understanding you're chara...I still think my chara and yours would be interesting to hook up. ^_^ Well, lemme know.<BR><BR><b>Lindaranel</b>: Do you think we should kinda post a summary of everything that happened in the first thread??

I dun care, you tell me. I'm usually aske din all my other htreads to post a summary because I'm usually the one who keeps all the stories in Word. I was just thinking of it because while you did post a summary it was really just about Vanyarra (I know she's the main chara) and there's more than just one chara the new ppls will be interacting with. So I duuno.
