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

OOC: Of Lothlórien and Dol-Guldur; The Journey to Lothlórien

Postby Fëaros » Wed Nov 16, 2005 10:12 am

The Journey to Lothlorien

Two elves and a Man embark upon a journey through the darkness of Mirkwood, entrusted with the task of escorting Lady Atlantea, (Daughter of Lord Thranduil) to Lothlorien. Archer Garrack "The Brave" of Dale is grievously wounded, the Healers of Thranduils Kingdom have done their best but it would take something beyond this elven-lore for him to be healed completely. Galdor, a noble and strong Noldorin elf is also one of our company, long a friend of Fëaros, glorious yet humble. Fëaros himself is an elf originally of Doriath but more recently hailing from Lothlorien, it is he who leads our fellowship on it's perilous route...

If you would like to join this RP then please leave your character details in a format similar to one of the below. It may be useful if you read at least the last few posts of the preceeding thread (Of Lothlorien and Dol Guldur):

http://forums.theonering.com/viewtopic.php?p=3274384#3274384

Character details don't matter too much I.E. Race, Age etc... as long as your character has afeasible reason for being in Dol-Guldur and wanting to go to Lorien then it doesn't matter, outside of those parameters you can be as imaginative as you like... Feel free to ask questions about this or the previous thread if you are interested...

Hmm, I don't think the Pony may help all that much these days. When I posted it hadn't been posted in for almost a year, I'm not sure how many people will actually check it. Is there anyway we could fit something about recruiting in the title for a time?
I.E.
OOC: Of Lothlórien and Dol-Guldur; The Journey to Lothlórien(Recruiting!)
Just a thought to further our productivity. And while I'm still thinking, :idea: , are you going to change the title on the IC to match that of the OOC. Seeing as it isn't all that long we may not need to create another thread. Whatever you like :) .

Postby Aranel_Sarlonde » Wed Nov 23, 2005 1:13 pm

I will admit its been a while since I've been to TORC; but I miss RPing here. So I'll give it a go again.

Name: Aranel Sarlonde
Race: Half elf/dwarf
Gender: Female
Age: 1,678
Height: Short, only around 5"2'
Build: Slender, small, but strong
Looks: Very fair in Countenance like all elves
Hair: red
Eyes: Dark blue, almost look black
Marital Status: Single...for now
Occupations: Exile...protects Fangron to the best of her abilities
Clothes: Black leggings, dk. red tunic, knee high dk.red traveling boots, long black traveling cloak with dwarfish runes on it as a border
Means of Travel: her feet unless she hitches a ride on her guardian, Treebeard
Weapons/Skills: small dwarfish axe, handmade wrist crossbow, and two elvish daggers
Bio: Aranel has no memory of her past; all she knows are the stories that are told to her by Treebeard and the things that have happened to her in what she sees as a lonely life. Knowing that she is half elvish and half dwarfish was something that was pretty obvious, all she knows about her supposed parents is that her Father was a March warden for Mirkwood who died in the battles that resulted in the Dead Marshes. Her mother was a dwarf from Moria. When she was first born, to hide their love, her father brought her to Fangorn and left her there, Aranel only assumed, to die. Which is, from Tree beard’s stories, when Gandalf the Grey found her and asked Treebeard to care for her. Gandalf became a steady visitor in her life while she lived in Fangorn. Because of her origins, Gandalf had given her her name which meant 'Star in a Stone haven'.

Every 3-6 months Aranel makes the long journey to Bree for a short visit and than back to Fangorn. As she's had her visit, she's on her way back home, but to do so she must pass through the realm of Lothlorien.

How's that?

I really like it, nice to have you with us Aranel! Lot's of potential sub-plots with your character, fantastic...

I'm intrigued as to the way an elven dwarf would speak and act, can't wait to RP with you :)
Hopefully we can persuade you to continue journeying with us after we've reached Lothlorien... :wink:

Hey!
If you are still looking for new players, I'd like to join. I kind of skimmed over the previous thread, and this is what I came up with: my char would be one of the elves who came with Galdor to assist Thranduil's elves in their defense of Mirkwood. Perhaps Galdor wants him to return to Elrond with news of what's going on and asking for more help if Elrond can spare it. So he's going to travel part of the way with Atlantea's escort, with Fearos' permission. I'm sure somewhere along the way, something will happen that will prevent him from leaving the group and he'll just end up going with them all the way to Lothlorien.

Here's a proposed bio:

name: Peridal
gender: male
age: ? does it really matter - he's an elf. Let's just say he's kind of young adult.
physical: tall, lithe, long dark hair, dark eyes
origin:born and raised in Rivendell
history: Has spent most of his life in Rivendell in the service of Elrond and his sons. Fought in the battle of the last alliance. Is a soldier when called upon but prefers poetry to weaponry. Was engaged but his fiancee decided to travel into the west with her parents a long time ago, in ME years, and he had to stay because things were growing so tense with Sauron's latest resurrection and all, and he believes the elves should still be faithful to ME and their allies here. Typical poet, he holds to the melancholic belief that there is no real hope for any of them, and feels he is doomed to die in one battle or another.
personality: quiet, taciturn, pessimistic, with a wry humor, writes very sad poetry
weapons: Typical - bow and sword, dagger

Well, let me know if this fits in with your storyline.

sorry it took so long to show back up i was gone for Thanksgiving

Celebquesse is a some what grim elf she lost her father becuse a group of orcs ambush them on the rode. he was killed before her eyes, when the orcs came she hide in a tree she had been vary young. when she came of age she became a warrior and has been fighting, and killing the things twisted by Morgoth her entire life and will not leave the shores of middle-earth till she has seen the last of them die.

she is on her way to Lothlorien becuse her mother lives there and she is leveing middle-earth and wants to escort her to her ship.

lol, this character actually has a very detailed history in her last 2 RPs. However, I figured it's been a while since I've used her so why not explore a different path for her.

Intrigued as to how she speaks and acts eh? Well, she's as fiery as a dwarf but as graceful as an elf. ^_^()
Anyways, yeah, the RP sounds fun. ^_^

So we have six members total now. I'm not sure off the top of my hand but I think this thread at one time had seven or eight, anywho I think we could start the IC and keep the recruiting up for anyone who wants to join still.

I must say I like that addition at the end. Hopefully we can get a Hobbit in here... :twisted:

Fëaros I'd say we are definately ready to start now, we need to start our journey so we can meet up with the new additions.
I don't know if anyone has their meeting planned out yet but, we are currently heading to Lothlorien so we could easily just meet some any one of the elven characters there, though as for someone who might not be so welcome in Lothlorien, possibly a half elf/dwarf, then thers always room on the way.

Tx, although a melancholy elf is surely nowhere near as interesting as an elf-dwarf (would that be a "dwelf" or an "elfarf" ?) or a hobbit-wielding beserker, but, hey, maybe I can play the straight guy

Narya - I thought as Peridal showed up in mirkwood with your troop of elves, he and Galdor would probably know each other. I figured he would just be setting out with the four of you right away as you leave Thranduil's city. If that doesn't work for you "veterans", let me know and I'll come up with some other way for him to meet up with and join the group.

Oh, and Blackthorn - watch out for Robin Greenleaf. She's got a nasty right hook! :shock: :rofl: :D
