Hey guys! I promise you this is gonna be one hell of a story. It'll need 4 other people to be in the main group who will be the rest of the "5 beings of power". Let me know if you want to be one of them or just a separate character who joins up. Post your profile below. Mine will be up shortly. See ya in the story!

This sounds interesting. But, could you please explain a little about the "five beings of power"? What species are they? Elf, mortal, Istari, spirits?<BR><BR>--Aiwe

Sorry bout that. I had hoped to explain that a little bit later but it makes a lot more sense to let everyone know now. The 5 beings of power are going to be a group of five people (elf, dwarf, human, etc.)who are destined to stop a great evil that is coming to middle earth. The group obviously starts out spearated and then as they meet up they learn more and more about their destinies. At some point each one will be given a specific power that allows them to rid middle earth of the darkness but it can only be done while they are using their powers together. On the journey many things will try and split the group up so that when the time comes they will all die. That kind of sums it up for now. Also, one thing I want in this thread is for poeple to be allowed to write what others are saying. You don't just have to write what your character says. I find that it makes a much better story and things move a lot quicker. And we all know how these MODS are about really slow threads. lol.

Hey Robbie.<BR><BR>I will post a link to the *Character Archives* and my character when I get a chance...I sum things up, my character, Imthulëiel, is an Elf, and she has a romantic past to Wicket, which I am sure ya'll can figure out if you read the post in the actual RP...<BR><BR>I am one of the 5 powers...will not say which one yet, because I am not sure what is going to happen, but just keep in mind that this is an RP that needs to be kept serious. I don't mean to sound like a TORC Witch, but we have had problems before with the stories going only so far, and people losing interest. <BR><BR>:-D I'll go and find that Archives link now.<BR><BR>EDIT: Here ya go. <a href='http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?start=182&catid=25&threadid=34533' target=_blank>Obloomsgurl (Imthulëiel) Info</a>

My character profile:<BR><BR>Name: Wicket Esslan<BR><BR>Height: 5'11"<BR><BR>Weight: 169 lbs.<BR><BR>Species: Human<BR><BR>Appearence: Short brown hair with large bangs that come over the face. Hazel eyes and light skin. Wears battle armor from the old war of the ring. <BR><BR>Weapon of choice: A long sword with a red handle on it. The end has a slight curve to it. <BR><BR>Age: 30<BR><BR>Description: Very strong strong and courageous. If a friend is in need he will always come to their rescue. He will not be talked badly about and can have a temper when pushed too far.<BR><BR>History: As a young boy he watched his father leave home to go fight in the War of the Ring. His mother, 2 sisters, and him waited years for his father to come back but he never returned. Wicket was in charge of his family and protected them from orcs and other troubles. When he was 18, he left home to learn what happened to his father. He found his father's remains in a field. Wicket took his father's armor and swore to fight for justice the rest of his life. Although he had helped many people he never felt complete. When the world of Middle-Earth was threatened by an evil sorcerss, Wicket formed a goup of adventurers to help him put an end to her. While on this journey he fell in love with and elf, Thule, who had known his father years ago. Sadly, the quest failed and Wicket and Thule were separated. He still waits for her to come back someday.

It's me again guys. Here's the thing: we really need a second post here or this RP isn't going anywhere. I couls write more if you'd like but I'm not a big fan of double posting. I'll give it a day or so and then I'll go for it. Hope to hear from you soon.

Robsdeli,<BR><BR>I'll try to post tomorrow (Sunday) - if you want a dwarf around. I've got an idea (spin off) from a current character.<BR><BR>I do have a suggestion: If you're going travel Middle Earth far and wide looking for the four of us, you're going to have a rough time logisitically (methinks). How would you feel about Aragorn (Elesar) sending out trusted scouts in an effort to help you. This would probably best be done somewhat secretly - and somehow he can try to keep in contact with you.<BR><BR>Any idea when the appointed DAY when everyone needs to be together (A drop dead deadline) or this a mystery somehow locked in the prophecies?<BR><BR>Just some random thoughts.<BR><BR>Rough bio:<BR><BR>Dwarf - age 83 - male - from Iron Hills - has blessing of Mahar (Aule) through a deed his father (since disgraced/exiled and deceased) has done that inspired Mahar to look over this dwarf and send to him a vision that you've explained. As his father has been to Minas Tirith just prior to the War of the Rings (see Fellowship of the Palantir - just getting off the ground and hopefully carries through to fruition), the son may have heard of the stone halls and have an inkling of what direction to be travelling to & even perchance run into you on the way - though keep in mind (he's in the Iron Hills, a heckuva long way away.<BR><BR>Sounds like we'll be writing five separate stories, possibly six if you include what Aragorn's people are going to be going through to try to help get us together.<BR><BR>Somehow or another we might want to give 'some' idea of what this 'great evil' is that is starting to present itself. I think you can be somewhat vague about this, but to just leave it as a 'great evil' might attract the MODS as well. Could be some sort of back story, or possibly something that Aragorn and Wicket have spent time researching in the prophetic scrolls (I'm reaching here).<BR><BR>Ideas, thoughts..<BR><BR>Qwertymoo

Qwertymoo,I like the way you think. Sorry I made a few things at the beginning so vague. I definately want the thing about Aragorn sending out scouts. As for separate storylines, I think this rp will work better if we get together as quick as possible. Not necessaruly everyone. We can be in cetain groups and then meet up. I could work out better that way. I dunno. Also, I think mentioning the dark power would be a good idea if the MODS are gonna act that way. I'll think of more to the back story and see what happens from there. I look forward to your post.

Robsdeli,<BR><BR>I don't want to come across as being against the MODS (I'm a newbie), but I've read a few threads that got off to a bad start (locked down) and they 'sort of' frown on complete vagueness - not that a little vagueness is a bad thing (adds some suspense, but then we also don't know what we're writing to (be it in the front of our minds or in the backstory so to speak).<BR><BR>I agree with getting together rather quickly as a group, I'll see what I can do about speeding this dwarf's way along without making it sound too hokey.<BR><BR>See you on the other side<BR><BR>Qwertymoo

Robsdeli,<BR><BR>Just posted in the storyline. Taurgstone hasn't had his 'VISION' yet but is within a day or twos journey of Minas Tirith. He's about to bed down and get his vision.<BR><BR>I guess fromt here you can work out something between Wicket and Aragorn until I get there, and hopefully we'll see a couple other people get on board as well. (As Beorn would say "two hardly seems like five now does it." <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> )<BR><BR>If we don't connect before have a Meryy Christmas.<BR><BR>Qwertymoo

Hello, may I join? :D This rpg is interesting and I think it can really grow. :D Just a little more detail and polishing.

I want to spice things up and be a thief!!!! :D A pretty thief that gets everyone through her charm and beauty! I'm a mortal by the way, and I think it's fun to be one of the five thing.

Well, who says we can't run with it anyway. Just take the basic plot left by the original poster and RP away? I've done it before and it worked out quite well. :) Or we could try to get in touch with robsdeli via email.

If you 2 are up for it, I am. This could be a great story.

Yeah, I'm up to it, who'll be thread person leader? I think we should renew everything.(Well, at least most of the plot, :D)

Will be waiting. :D

Atalantea, honey! *hug* I was going to drag you back to my thread, but then I got intrigued by the storyline of this one. How come it was never followed through? It's a shame, and I'd really like to join if someone would kick start things. :horse:
I'll be waiting as well. :D
