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

OOC: A Threat to the King

Postby Letora » Thu Jun 03, 2004 4:44 pm

Hello and here you can enter the thread "A Threat to the King." Please read through the first post and, if there are other posts, the rest of the thread. If you'd like to join you can be of any race or character concerning Middle Earth. If you would like to be one of the three that are making a plan to overthrow the king at the beginning of the thread, then you can e-mail me at mmcookie2002@hotmail.com, and we'll talk about that. Please post your character if you'd like to join. Remember not to interfere with other people's characters unless they allow you to and to stick to narating your own char. Here is my char:

Name: Letora Eharya (second name promounced, A-ar-a)
Race: Elf of the Woodland Realm
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Brown
Home: Mirkwood, though she is a traveller
Bio: Letora was raised in Mirkwood and she is the daughter of the king of the Woodland Realm. She was sent to live with Galadriel at the beginning of the third age. She has since been doing work for Galadriel and does it while travelling all across Middle Earth. At the moment she is on a mission to Gondor, and to Minas Tirith.

It's rather short but I'm the kind of person that likes to develop their char for the particular thread, so Letora will develop to you throughout the thread.

Here's a list of everyone who's joined so far:

This thread sounds very intresting!! I'd like to join as a woman (and/or man, if needed) from gondor. Perhaps one of Arwen's maids or something along those lines. I'll post a bio if it is alright with you for me to join.

alrighty...

I would like to join... but I was wondering. I have an old assassin char that has taken a swipe at the king of gondor before. I was thinking I might revive him. I was thinking he could be hired by the conspiritours or something.

Aside from that, I think I might actually create my first elven character...

Well, that's all right with me. Post your char bio, and then you can go ahead and post your first post on the IC thread. I suggest you start off with going to Osgiliath since that is where all the conspiritors are meeting up. Anyways, hope ot see your character in the IC thread soon.

Yeah sure that sounds great. You can say that you've been with me in Mirkwood and that now you're going to Minas Tirith with me.

Go ahead and post on the IC thread, just make sure you don't mess around with my char too much since you'll be with me. Have fun with it.

Waking up the next morning. Saying goodbye. Heading for Gondor. The trip to Gondor won't take too long, I don't want to put much emphasis on it since it isn't part of the main story.

This is an old bio I dug up. He's not an elf but he might just fit in :)


Name: Paul Pequen
Sex: Male
Race: Man
Height: 7’6”
Age: 48
Eyes: grey
Hair: shaved bare; would be black if he let it grow
Occupation: Captain in the Army of Gondor

Appearance: A giant of a man and heavily muscled. Built like a brick house without an ounce of fat on him. Arms are “as thick as tree trunks”. The best way to describe him is Massive. He is shaved balled and a worn black Patch covers his left eye. His other eye is sharp and drilling. He is heavily scared all over his body. On his face he sports a white scar down his cheek giving him a very roughish look. He could be called handsome if scars and ruggedness to the extreme was attractive. He has a small golden earring in his right ear, and on his right shoulder a Tattoo depicting a sword and bone crossed over a helmet.

He usually wears a heavy steel plated brown leather vest and black wool pants. His boots are steel toad black leather riding boots. His battle gear is composed of his vest and a pair of plated leather gauntlets. Also a set of pants that matches his vest, but is only plated on the front. He is not a fan of livery, but if he must dress up, he grabs his Red velvet coat with the gold embroidery of lions and shines his boots.

Personality: He is cold and hard to most people. Usually only laughing or even cracking a smile for his fellow man in the field. He has spent nearly thirty years in combat on the front lines defending the borders of Gondor and is of the opinion that those in the interior away from the danger have no idea what it is like and while he might not like it he must protect them. Reserved and quick, He has a sharp wit should he decide to talk. He is a good judge of character and trusts his instincts implicitly. He does not drink, believing it slows the head. He is a hardcore military man, used to blood, guts, and dying. The bittersweet taste of victory, the rancid smell of defeat. Life is battle for him and he is home nowhere else. He has been in battle so often that he realizes the need for certianty and desisive action once it must be taken. He does not waste motion or time.

Weapons: A four and half foot long double handed broadsword. For his massive size it may be a little small for a cleaver but it allows him maneuverability and quick movement. A huge long bow nearly twice the size of a normal one, though with this he posses only adequate skill. A long two foot long heavy bladed knife, used in partnership with his sword.

Skill: He is master of his sword, able to use the huge sword with surprising speed and agility. His knife is his brother and he knows its weight and reach like the back of his hand. His bow he is only fair with as he is an infantry captain and leaves archery to the archers. Stealth he has developed with long experience, and patience and discretion with many a campaign and battle. fighting with his hands and feet was more than many times necissary and he has a developed skill in that area.

Distinguishing marks: Numerous scars, a tattoo on his right arm, and a black eye patch over his right eye

Transportation: His own two feet as it is difficult to find a hours large enough to bear his weight. For long distance they find him the biggest horse they can :)

Bio: Paul Pequen was born to Adam Pequen who was a soldier in the Gondorian army. Paul grew up to be a soldier, raised and trained with that goal in mind. He was taught the traditions and beliefs and honor of the a Gondor soldier. To fight for Gondor, to defend her and the rest of middle earth from evil, and die to that end if necessary. He entered the military at sixteen and lost himself in it.
For the next 34 years he did little else than serve in the Gondorian army. He lost his eye at 30 and made the rank of Captain at age 37 and five years later was offered the rank of a general which he refused as it would remove him from his men and the front-line fighting that had become his everyday. The men of Gondor are married to death, it is the only true destiny that awaits each of them. Paul lives with the realization that he will one day die, going down fighting alongside his comrades.
At forty-eight Paul was summoned to a banquet in the honor of the officers of the army. There he grew disgusted with the apparent laziness and pomp of the nobility he and his men were spilling their blood to protect. None of them had ever probably seen battle and he told them as much, saying many things that were not lightly said to nobility. One noble in particular took particular offense and used his considerable influence to get Paul sent away.
The Noble wanted him court-martialed or executed for his disrespect but Paul’s superiors were not willing to do that to such a loyal and valuable soldier so he was sent on more diplomatic military assignments, like escorting people and valuables and providing a gondorian military representative and nobles functions and cerimonies.

snipelfritz...Sure you can join. Please go ahead and post your bio.

Quim...If you want to it might be interesting if you used both your chars. One could work in Minas Tirith trying to save the king, and the other could be working with the conspiritors against the king. Go ahead and post on the IC thread if you want to...Edit: didn't realize you already posted :D

Nim...your first post looked good...Great Job.

Ah Thank you Letora. Here is my character.

Name:Anna

Age: 25 years old

Race: men

Gender: Female

Marital Status: single

Occupation: Mime/bodyquard

Appearance: Medium hight (around 5' 6'') and slender with brown hair that falls just past her shoulder blades and blue-green eyes. Has a light sprinkle of freckles on her face. Attractive but not overly pretty. Toned and strong from many years of being a bodyguard under diguise.

Personality: She has a personality which could be known as "sunny". She loves a good laugh and is fun to be around. She is very kind and loves being with her friends. She is also very stealthy, bearly making a sound when she walks, having been a mime for so many years.

Clothing:
-In the court: she wears a lose fitting cat-suit that hugs her figure enough to see her curves, one half is white and the other is black. Her hair is always put up into a high ponytail. Her face is painted white with added color for lips etc. to make facial expressions larger.
-Anywhere else: She likes to wear an auburn colored dress with long sleeves that flair out a bit at the end, and with a v-neck. She also wears her hair down and loose around her face.

Bio: She grew up in Gondor. Her mother died giving birth to her and so lived with her older brother and father. She and her father never had a great relationship as she believed he secretly blamed her for his wife's death. Thus, she and her brother became very close. He tought her to use a sword and eventually bought one for her on her 16th birthday. He is a soldier in the King of Gondor's army. She lives in the servant quarters of the King's castle and is an entertainer there; she is a mime. What the people of the court don't know is that she is under disgues as a bodyguard to the King and Queen.

Weapon: A sword, which was given to her by her brother, and a dagger, which she always carries with her.

Quim, is Serine the assasin from The Court of Fools? If so, we could get a little rivalry going on between our two characters; a little side plot. Do you catch my drift?

Looks good! How do you plan on putting your char into the story right now? Or perhaps would you like to wait and see if Quim puts his assassin char in so you can enter your char when we reach Gondor. Yeah, how about that. You can enter your char when we reach Gondor since your of the race of men. How's that with you?

Here's my bio:
Name: Snipelfritz (Snipel for short)
Age: 32
Race: Human
Sex: Male
Height: 5' 11"
Occupation: Travelling Merchant
Allignment: Politically Neutral
Appearance: A skinny young man. Has short dark hair, and a light beard extending from temple to temple.
Clothing: Wears a raggady mix-match of clothing that reflect his many travels across Middle Earth.
Personallity: He is light of heart and always enjoying a jest or song. His heart is in the right place, but he occasionally has trouble finding it, as it is sometimes shrouded by his love of money and rare collectables.
Backround: Of Gondorian decent, his great grandfather fought in the Battle of the Pelanor Fields. Snipelfritz's grandfather, fed up with his life in Minas Tirith, bought an old cart, and left with his wife and his infant son. They began selling goods from Minas Tirith in Edoras, and visa-versa. After him and his wife's death, his son took up the place in the family buisseness. Through him the buisiness thrived and he expanded his range of sale to Bree and Esgaroth. He fell in love with a maiden of Rohan, and she ran away with him and they had a child. They named him Snipelfritz. He grew up on the road, learning the ins and outs of merchantism from his father. After the death of his parents, Snipel continued to live his life on the road alone. He trades anysort of goods, rare collectables, or weaponry he can get his hands on. His traveller status is the reason for his neutrallity, but he still feels implied to fight for whats right when it is needed.
Weapon: Two maces collected and handed down by his great-grandfather as a momorobelia of Pelanor Fields. They were taken from a Southeron captain, and Snipel has trained himself in being profficient in using them in battle and has fought off the occasional wild warg with them.

How should I enter???

Snipel...Well I suggest that you as well wait until we reach Minas Tirith to post. You can try selling us something when we first enter the city. We won't go all the way up to the Citadel at first so that you can have a chance to bump into us. You can, by mistake, get mixed up in our affairs by trying to seel to the assasins too. That should be good, I'm sure we'll have fun posting together.

Quim...There will be a meeting in Osgiliath soon among the conspiritors, you can go to that as your assasin char. I'll have the elf introduce you and then you can get to work in that. I'm sure we'll have fun with both your captain and your assasin.

Nim...We'll get you in there as soon as possible. And let's get to Gondor quick so that these other folks can hop in.

Arenial...Can't wait to meet you in Minas Tirith. We'll try and be there soon.

Edit: I'm not so sure about that last post. I'm trying to illustrate one of Letora's more "finer" attributes, sarcasm. Letora hates to be "babysat" she's really the stand up for herse;f kind of person. But other than that she's really nice, I'll get her to be nicer and friendlier to you character after that lat post.

Yeah, that'll work out fine.

Paul thinks everybody from the enterior (away from mordor) are soft and sort of self-centered. He's been in the military a long time and doesn't think alot of the nobles can comprehend getting their hands dirty so he'll be a little angry at first. But he's primarily respectfull, after all he is a military man under orders.

I can't wait to show Paul off in combat, I was thinking of having a party of Orcs show up or something (but probably not, the road between mirkwood and Minas Tirith should be pretty clear). Serine will be fun too :)

Care for another Fool? :D

Name: Ranlach
Race: werewolf
Age: 19
Occupation: Formerly an acrobat and pyrotechnician in the Court of Fools. He accidentally took a crossbow bolt through the heart (inadvertantly saving the Queen's life), however, and was thereafter considered dead to the world. Nowadays he keeps to his wolf form and does doggy tricks as part of the Fools' entertainment lineup. In his off hours he wanders the palace, sniffing for threats.

Hope that's acceptable. :)
