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

Postby Turgon1111 » Wed Apr 21, 2004 7:31 am

This is my first time making my own thread, but I've been thinking about this for a long time now. I wanted to do a forum on the defence of the marches near Doriath. This is around the time when Turin and Beleg were defending it.The orcs are overtaking the elves down there and we need to defend it to keep the orcs from taking over.They are slowly wearing down the defences. If we don't help the one last free kingdom of Beleriand. You can be Elves, Men, or orcs,but no hobbits since they weren't around at the time. It will mostly be battles and confilicts.I hope you guys and gals will join. I will try to make it as fun as possible. I will use Seregon for this one. Please Join!<BR><BR><BR><BR>Here's Seregon's bio, incase you don't know him already<BR><BR>Name: Seregon<BR>Age:1,343<BR>Race: Elves<BR>Appereance: He has long blond hair that goes down to his shoulders. He's 6' tall and has green eyes. They have the light of the Two Trees in them. He is tall and thin and very lithe.<BR>Personality: He is known for being a lone wolf and doesn't socialize much. He is very stern and cold, and isn't quick to make friends. He is also very wise, having been taught by the Valar. He tends to be silent and often wanders into deep thought. He is well disciplined and thinks before he does anything.<BR>Marital Status: Due to his coldness, he has never been in love, but secretly hopes to find someone one day.<BR>Occupation: Wandering elf, helping wherever fate takes him.<BR>Skills: A skilled hunter and tracker, and very good with the bow and his sword<BR>Weapons: He has a bow made of black yew wood, and the bow has strings made of the sinew of bears. It was given to him by Orome as a gift. His sword is a long curved blade, and was forged by the skilled Noldor of Valinor.<BR>Horse: Mithlond is a beautiful roan horse with lots of muscle: He has a red and white color and his coat is very shiny. He has a long mane. The horse does not tire easily and is war-trained.<BR>Info: He was born in the bliss of Valinor before he went to Beleriand and Middle-earth. He never knew his parents, and was taken in by Orome. He became Orome's apprentice and learned much from the wise Vala. He is one of the Vanyar. He went to Middle-earth when the Noldor revolted and sailed and survived.

I would love to join Turgon! I'll post my bio now, if that's all right.<BR><BR><strong>Name</strong>: Narquelianar (October Sun) or Keli to those closest to her.<BR><strong>Age</strong>: 2003 years old<BR><strong>Race</strong>: Elf<BR><strong>Occupation</strong>: healer, she's one of the best.<BR><strong>Marital status</strong>: single<BR><strong>Appearance</strong>: She has a small, slender figure and an attractive face, though not overly pretty. She has green eyes, long red hair, which is normally worn loose and free around her face, a pert little nose and a full mouth.<BR><strong>Personality</strong>: She is basically your loner type. She is very quiet, keeping to herself mostly, and very shy. She is also very kind and loyal. She only speaks when spoken to; she is not one to go start up conversation. She really just wants a good friend, or a lover, but is too shy to talk to anyone. Most Elves have seen her around, but they don't know her name. She’s really just sad because no one's ever taken the time to talk to her (corny, I know). She has a lovely singing voice and a smile that can brighten up the darkest of rooms.<BR><strong>Bio</strong>: She's lived in Gondolin all her life, studying to be a healer under her mother, the head healer. She also learned to use a sword in her spare time with the help of her older brother, who is a soldier in the King's army. She and her brother are very close and can tell each other anything. She has basically had a sheltered life and nothing really exciting has ever happened to her. <BR><BR>I hope she's all right. Basically, she'll go to war as a healer.<BR><BR>Ren

Sounds great! I have a member! I like your character, she is like Seregon in the fact that they're both sort of lone wolves. I'm sure she'll make a great addition.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.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-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

Thanks Turgon<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> I like your chara. too; sounds like he and Narquelianar will get along just fine.<BR><BR>Ummm.... just how exactly are you planning to start the IC? Will they already be at war? Or will the Elves planning to go to war and having farewell banquets and stuff?

I think I'll have them be having a dinner for the warriors in the halls of Menegroth with King Thingol. I don't think I want to instantly get into a battle yet. But we will have plenty of those later. I'll start the IC as soon as we have more characters. We can't start with just us. Hopefully we won't have to wait very long for that to happen.

Fëaros, your last post is too short. The guidlines say that a post has to be at least 10 lines long. But, your character sounds interesting; though I think 76 is a bit young for an Elf to be going to war. 76 in Elf years is like 10 in human years. <BR><BR>And, is the banquet over? From reading the posts, it sounds like it is. So where was the dancing? The feasting? The laughing? The music? It can't be over in four posts, that's just too quick. Four <em>pages</em> would be more like it. We can't have an RP where everything goes by in a snap. I've been in RP's where they were going to war and the battle was over in a page. Where is the drama in that? Believe me, I know from experiance. Do we want this RP to last? Or do we want it to be over in two pages? I'm sorry if I sound like I'm lecturing, but if this is to be a good RP, it needs to last. Take your time when you post. What is character feeling? What does he see? Take the time to describe your surroundings, interact with other characters. I for one, want my character to get to know the others in the RP. I may not be the best writter, but I've RPed long enough to know that this kind of stuff makes the RP worth something.<BR><BR>And now, I shall stop babbling.

Hello All I was wondering if I could join.<BR>Here's my Bio:<BR><BR>Name:Sephiroth<BR><BR>Race:half-elf<BR><BR>Age:234<BR><BR>Sex: Male<BR><BR>Looks: Long silver hair, aqua eyes. Tall at 6'3. He's usually wearing a black tunic and brown breeches. <BR><BR>Weapon: Broadsword, usually strapped on his back, plus two daggers.<BR><BR>History: Sephiroth is a half-elf, his mother being an elf, his father a mortal. However he never got a chance to meet his father, pursued by the idea of finding him Sephiroth left his home and lived amoung humans. 29 years later he gave up knowing his father was mortal and being so was probably dead. Enjoying human company he decided to live with them, and has so far enjoyed his life in general, but now wishes he had the company of elves.<BR><BR>Personality: Generally nice, but can get defensive easily. He's a strong warrior and has a good judge of charecter. He can sometimes be called stuck up because of his pride in his fighting ability.<BR><BR>Horse: A black gelding with white mane, like his elfish ancestors he rides with no saddle or bridle. His geldings name is Isis.<BR><BR>So that's it! Hope I can join!<BR>~Jakkin *wark!*

This is a newer charcter of mine, hope he can fit in somehow <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> that is if you don't mind me joining.<BR><BR>Name: Paul<BR>Gender: Male<BR>Race: Human (Edain)<BR>Height: 6'1"<BR>weight: 190 lb<BR><BR>Occupation: teacher of the staff, wanderer<BR><BR>Appearance: Tale and fair, not pale. Extremely lithe and tone. In his travels he has never been able to keep much fat. He is 38 but despite his age he still maintains something of a yutheful face. He has a few lines around the mouth and eyes, either from stress or mirth. Dirty blond hair tide in a pony tale between his shoulder blades, with a few short bangs dangling near blue eyes.<BR><BR>Clothing: A brown leather armor vest over a loose tan jerken. Black pants with good solid brown leather boots. Also a pair of long leather wrist bands that stretch back to halfway to his elbows.<BR><BR>Weapons: Quarter staff with one foot blades on either end. Hunting knife.<BR><BR>Bio: On the day he was born his villiage was attacked by Orcs. His mother died in childbirth and his father was cut down in the raid. When more men of Edian came and drove the Orcs away, shortly after they had begun the attack, they found him and took him back with them. When he was fifteen he struck out on his own after being told the story of his finding and his parents death. Somehow where he lived did not seem the place where he belonged and he was forever restless.<BR>When he left he took his staff, with the blades, as a gift from the couple that had taken him in. For the next several years, he simply wandered. He picked up skill with his prefered weapon through experience.<BR>When he was 30, he took up teaching it as a weapon. He always used a regular staff when teaching, however<BR><BR><BR>Heh, hello Arenial. I didn't notice which character you had used until I hunted this one down at "eagle riders" <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0>

Hi, <BR><BR>I read your RP thread, it looks like fun. <BR>I've been looking for a thread where I could do something with an evil character and possibly get into some bloody battles. <BR>Problem is, I'm not as familiar with Sil based stories of the First Age as I am with Third Age, LotR stories.<BR>It's been years and years and years since I read any of the Sil.<BR><BR>So, how closely will you be following the text? Is it absolutely necessary to know details or will you be taking liberties? Or are you planning to try to co ordinate the action in the OOC? (like saying <em>"at this point in the battle Seregon's troops went here and did this"</em>) <BR><BR><BR>I'm sure I could do enough research to be able to keep up.<BR>(found this page pretty easily <a href='http://genesis.cs.chalmers.se/domains/gondor/agarwaen.html' target=_blank><strong>The History of the House of Agarwaen</strong></a>)<BR><BR>If you want to see a sample of my RPing you can look at this thread; <a href='http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?start=0&catid=25&threadid=49812' target=_blank><strong>The Map of Nogrod</strong></a>(skip around a little, it goes through a lot of different changes)

Dummble: Interesting character! I've never seen a dwarf that used a sword before. I'm sure he'll spice things up a bit. Welcome to the club!<BR><BR>Glasshouse: Welcome Glasshouse! Thanks for joining. I think the only time we'll be following the text would have to be when Turin and Beleg come into the mix. Otherwise there wasn't much said about it. I think that it will mostly be battles and action, but I'm sure we could have some other conflicts as well. I think it would be a great idea to plan out the story here in the OOC. We could get all sorts of ideas from each other and each help the story sound great.
