View Full Version : Lord of the Rings (The one that rules them all)
07-08-2011, 11:50 PM
Hello, my name is Steph ^-^ and I have been dying to do a Lord of the Rings role-play forever. Forgive me, this is my first time making a thread that isn't a one-on-one so if I miss something or make a mistake, let me know! I have never actually role-played LOTR before but I have read it and seen it so I wouldn't be completely clueless on what to do. However it has been a long time, so if I mess up just let me know!
I accept original characters and new characters. This is what your skeleton should look like:
What side your on:
For example, Aragon's title is King of Gondor. Not everyone needs a title you can just list their profession, just something I thought would be important and helpful. So here are all the original characters that I thought of.
There are a lot more, those are just some of the ones I thought of. The bolded names are ones that are needed. We could probably get away without Legolas and Gimili, but LOTR just wouldn't be the same without them. I'm debating if I want to join as an original, a new character or both.
Oh we should try to keep the ratio of races even, but it's not a terribly big deal. Might just be odd to have twelve elves and then only one dwarf. Whatever happens, happens though.
That is about all I can think of, so please join away :)
UPDATE 07-11-11 : Elizabeth16 has given me a wonderful idea. Instead of trying to follow the original fellowship, we're going to create our own, that way it will be easier to fit our characters in. So you still may play original characters, just know that it will not be the same as in the movie. Again too lazy to erase and re-write everything so I just added more XD

Here's the IC!
Title: None really, some humans call her "The all Powerful Elvish Healer" though.
Personality:Riniel is compassionate and caring, this is clear by her profession. Even thug she is shy, she is still stubborn and is a hard worker. Raised to treat every race with gentleness, she trusted easily, which was her biggest flaw. Riniel loves simplicity and having a plan. Even though she appears to be gentle and weak, she knows how to use a sword.
History: Riniel was raised with her mother, father, grandfather and grandmother. Each one teaching her valuable lessons. Her mother and grandmother taught her how to heal while her father and grandfather taught her how to fight and use her sword. Her life had been simple and pleasant, no horrible scenarios, no evil ruler taking over the world, just plain happiness and longevity. She moved out into her own home and started her career as a healer.
Name:Samwise Gamgee aka Sam
Personality: Sam is very faithful to his friends. He is kind, simple and helpful. His curiosity makes him sneaking, hiding in small spots to learn information he isn't suppose to know. Sam is usually very happy and loves to go on adventures.
History: Sam has known Fordo and Bilbo Baggins ever since he was a lad. Unlike Fordo, Samwise Gamgee was a common hobbit, not knowing the life of fame since the Baggins name comes along with fame.
Sorry for awful Personality and Histroy, I tried looking it up but there wasn't terribly much on Sam.
Name: Arwen Nightblood
What side your on: Good
Title: Arwen has no real title, though she is known as a wanderer.
Profession: More of a nomad, doing odd jobs for money.
Appearance:Here I am (http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/ww44/xVoliviax/Decorated%2520images/_Forest_of_Elves__by_Kaizeru-1-1.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.gaiaonline.com/forum/barton-town/the-power-of-aies-sedai-full/t.54275823_61/&usg=__NoPsYci6Ng5YF3MuU6T0qEsEr2k=&h=412&w=275&sz=31&hl=en&start=30&sig2=aIGLn0lzjgbsRSKx_9xS8Q&zoom=1&tbnid=7ID2Xp9qsMU0cM:&tbnh=150&tbnw=100&ei=oeYXTrb0Nc-_gQfJ-6kC&prev=/search%3Fq%3DElven%2BGirl%26hl%3Den%26biw%3D1600%2 6bih%3D658%26gbv%3D2%26tbm%3Disch&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=1204&vpy=268&dur=1160&hovh=275&hovw=183&tx=95&ty=168&page=2&ndsp=27&ved=1t:429,r:7,s:30&biw=1600&bih=658)
Personality: Quiet, thoughtfu and waryl, Ava is best known to attack you as much as be your friend. She is usually tough on the outside, but can be very sweet and gentle if you get on her good side. If she is Loyal to you, which isnt very common, she will always be at your side.
History: Arwen had a great childhood, but she felt she was needed elsewhere in the world. The pull she feels has been causing her to wander throughout Middle Earth for many years. During her first few years alone in the wild she happened apon a wild cat (http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://bp3.blogger.com/_1DBg0_LOa14/SJMjsbhVWjI/AAAAAAAAAzk/DDx-eu9gAvo/s320/1052~Pure-White-Tiger-Posters.jpg&imgrefurl=http://cwildlife.blogspot.com/2008/08/beautiful-white-tiger.html&usg=__TIKUrZeUzRAYMwQrlEX10ZqEbLI=&h=320&w=253&sz=20&hl=en&start=105&sig2=z8l9JwQucCF3WWY5-CtiPg&zoom=1&tbnid=jLIYAMHSy-GfgM:&tbnh=173&tbnw=137&ei=-egXTv_YLoLogQewpLn9Dw&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dbeautiful%2Bwhite%2Btiger%26hl%3Den%2 6biw%3D1600%26bih%3D658%26gbv%3D2%26tbm%3Disch&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=281&page=5&ndsp=23&ved=1t:429,r:16,s:105&tx=69&ty=63) with whom she quickly bonded and became traveling companions with.
She still wanders Middle Earth, trying to find the thing or person that has been calling her for so long
07-09-2011, 01:45 PM
Yay my first person! :)
Why not submit it for Roleplay of the Week (http://www.role-player.net/forum/showthread.php?t=905) or put it in the Roleplaying Games Directory (http://www.role-player.net/forum/showthread.php?t=2304) or click here (http://www.role-player.net/forum/showthread.php?t=3975) to help attract players?
07-09-2011, 06:57 PM
can I rp two characters? one original one unique or something like that?
07-09-2011, 07:33 PM
Yes you may Alanoth! I never thought of submitting it for Roleplay of the Week...maybe I'll do that! Thank you Kirs :)
07-09-2011, 10:15 PM
Yes, yes she is!
Why thank you very much. *sweeps into a bow*
07-10-2011, 02:28 AM
Name: Rilgania Felagund
Side: Good (but torn)
Title: Has not earned a title yet, as she is an exceptionally young elf
Profession: Rilgania is a warrior, just completing training. She excels with a long bow, and is a Archer of Mirkwood. She bears a sword, but is hesitant to use it.
Appearance: http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/6472/archerportrait2.jpg(right except hair is down to hip, and pulled half up, half down, and she wears a black cloak.
Personality: Rilgania is a young elf in her age, but a elf by all means. Her eyes are sharp, watching around her constantly, taking everything in. She was raised in the forests of Mirkwood to be quick in action, keen in senses, and wary of ease. Rilgania is not quiet, but grows strong in opinion with companions, though she often is very aware of her age and strives to be older, and wiser. Mirkwood's trees have confined her free roaming spirit, leaving her anxious to get out. She is stubborn by all means, and though young in age, she is loyal to a fault... But something about this human war, and the dragons overhead offer more freedom than the forests of Mirkwood...
07-10-2011, 04:55 AM
Race: Half Elf Half Human
What side your on: Independent
Title: The Wanderer(to the elves);to others he has no title
Profession: Alanoth is trained as both a Gondorian Ranger, and as an elven warrior. He currently avoids taking a side, but is inclined to assist those of the good side who cannot defend themselves.
Appearance: 6'4" tall, fair mostly human skin complexion, short black hair just beneath the ears, brown eyes with a hazel ring on the edge of the brown, moderate muscle w/no body fat. Wears a mixture of Elven and Gondorian Ranger clothing, almost like light armor.
Personality: Alanoth is a mysterious elf who mostly avoids contact with others. He usually avoids attention, and does a good job of it normally. However, when he is forced to interact with people, it depends on what kind of person you are and whether you are male or female. If you are a man, he will treat you neutrally unless you are evil, in which case he will treat you with disgust. If you are a woman, he will treat you with the utmost of respect, even if you are evil. He usually avoids making friends or relationships, as they can potentially cause him emotional harm.
History: Alanoth was born to an elven mother of Rivendell who had fallen in love with a Gondorian Ranger. They both formed a passionate relationship, and so Alanoth was conceived. Most elves had no idea of what to think of Alanoth initially, so Elrond declared that Alanoth was to be treated based on his actions. When he was an adolescent, his father taught him how to fight as a man, and his mother taught him how to fight as an elf. He became one of the best marksmen of all knowledge due to his inherited elven and Ranger abilities. He also became proficient in any sword to the point that Haldir himself once sparred against Alanoth in a training session which Haldir thoroughly enjoyed. Alanoth's mother was killed by a goblin near Moria's mountains, and his father died during one of the first few sieges of Osgiliath. Left with no one, Alanoth vowed to never form a relationship, and went off on his own to wander Middle Earth.
((Might make a second char sheet))
07-10-2011, 04:22 PM
All righty we seem to be good on elves, well except for Legolas. We need some other races, I'm glad we have someone who's playing half elf-half human. That shall be interesting.
07-10-2011, 04:42 PM
A few questions and stuff before I decide.
First off, will this be going from the start of Fellowship of the Ring (first book/movie) or will it be at the end of Return of the King (last book/movie) or somewhere in the middle (although I think I know when it will be set)? Secondly, how many characters will you let one person make and control? I know some people don't like others taking more then two slots for roleplays, but I was thinking I could make some (maybe three or four of them, depending) of my characters from the LOTR games I've played and take one of the original characters (I need one for two of my character's stories to work).
That's it. That's all I have to ask.
07-10-2011, 05:28 PM
I want it to start at the Council of Elrond (so yes the first book/movie) and start the journey from there. I don't care how many characters you play, play your little hearts desire! I don't know if you've read all my comments, but we don't need anymore elves (except for Legolas). That is all I have to say. Anymore questions?
07-10-2011, 05:34 PM
Nope that's all...now to cross off one of my characters since she's an elf and I can't change her....
07-10-2011, 05:37 PM
If we get more people who join as other races, and we lack elves you may join as an elf!
07-10-2011, 05:56 PM
Am I accepted as an elf?
I don't think we should follow the fellowship storyline... Why not look at the characters we have, put them in Elrond's Council, and create our own version of LOTR?
07-10-2011, 09:50 PM
Yes you're accepted. Well what exactly did you have in mind then for our own version of LOTR?
07-11-2011, 12:44 AM
You say you want frodo and everyone... Why not start all the characters we have, including any original LOTR character, and create a different Fellowship? We still have to destroy the ring... But how, and who, is different.
Or you work with original characters and fit them into the original LOTR storyline, which would be hard.
07-11-2011, 12:51 AM
Okay I gotcha now! That could be fun! Well I want to wait for some more people to join and see what happens first. But we might go with that instead!
07-11-2011, 01:54 AM
It just gives more room for creativity and more serious character development. It's really the only way it could work with so many elves. If no dwarves sign, you could say the dwarfs refused to partake in the destruction of the Ring! :)
07-11-2011, 05:03 AM
Sadness! I like Gimli he makes me giggle, I hope some people play dwarfs! Or a hobbit, anything really! You prove a point, well I'm too tired to edit my post now so I'll try to do it tomorrow!
07-11-2011, 10:04 PM
I was tired too :D
I hope it works out.
Get a banner made and put it on your sig- it'll get attention, if you attach a link.
07-11-2011, 11:22 PM
you could say the dwarfs refused to partake in the destruction of the Ring!
oh no you dont!!! herse a sturdy dwarf to join, to quote Gimli: id rather die than see the ring in the hands of an elf >.<
Name: Peryn Stormaxe
What side your on: Good
Title: royal guard
Profession: royal guard
Personality: usaly in a good mood, never turns down a fight, alittle sceptical to elves by nature
History: Peryn grew up in the Dwarven city of Erebor with hes merchant family. from early age Peryn showed skills with the axe and where for some time a soldier in the army fighting the mountain goblins. as he got older he went up in the ranks and is now one of the best royal guards. sendt by the king to rivendell to the counsel.
hope this is good? ^^
07-11-2011, 11:36 PM
I'm not the mod, but...
It sounds wonderful!
Glad to have a dwarf. *gag* :P
07-12-2011, 04:16 AM
Oh gee already some tension between elves and dwarfs and nothing has happened yet XD Well I must announce I will be gone for a couple days, so don't think I've left forever. That is a good idea Elizabeth, gosh your full of those! Glad you're joining this, I'd be so lost without you XD
Welcome Ancalime :) I am happy that you are joining! I still need to submit it for Roleplay of Week but I'll have to do that when I get back!
07-12-2011, 04:22 AM
I'd suggest you submit the banner before you leave so it's done when you get back :3
:) just saying.
But thank you! You'd be fine. I'm just a bouncing board, that's all.
07-12-2011, 04:44 AM
I did it! At least I think I did. Hope it works!
Okay that was a fail, I'm trying again! Ahah! It worked :) Now if I could change the link to say something like Lord of the Rings, or get those spoilers to show that would be awesome. Oh and if any of you have some friends that would like to join, tell them!
07-12-2011, 04:52 AM
i don't get it, is tghe IC thread up?
07-12-2011, 01:03 PM
Nope, still waiting for more people to join.
07-12-2011, 09:32 PM
ok then, I might put up another character who's evil just to mix things up a bit.
07-12-2011, 11:00 PM
Change the link name to something along the lines of "Lord of the Rings Roleplay-Open!"
Also, your picture works, but have you checked put the request shops? They'd bring even more attention with good design and the title on the picture.
*grins* This is going to be great!
07-14-2011, 07:15 PM
made a friend join the forum and he wanted to join this roleplay to :D
07-14-2011, 08:31 PM
All kinds of excited to be here! I'm the guy my good friend Ancalime told ya about! Pleasured to join! :D
Name: Grunthorm Ravenwing
Race: Human, Dűnedain
What side your on: Good
Profession: Protection, bounty-hunting
Personality: Grunthorm is a serious kind of guy, who gets the job done without asking questions. He lives off of the joy of driving his victims to the very brink of their sanity before he turns them in, or if he is in a bad mood, kills them.
He also has this twisted sense of humour, not so popular with most people. he is also very stubborn, and doesn't like not getting things done on his own terms.
History: From his birth on, Grunthorm was orphaned after his parents left him for dead in a forest right after his very birth. Only luck struck him as the remaining Wood elves took him in and raised him up with all their care till the day he was old enough to go out on his own.
Unfortunately, he got into a fight with a local elf who had been pestering him for a long time, and ended up killing him in cold blood. As a result of this, Grunthorm was sent out to fend for himself. He decided to travel to the forest of Fangorn, where he quickly ended up training himself up to become more agile, faster and an effective hunter.
Discovered by a recruiter, he got a job as a bounty-hunter, and got trained by his employers to assassinate swiftly, but deadly.

I love <3 you two are most amazing.
07-15-2011, 12:21 AM
I love <3 you two are most amazing.

The awesomeness of this awesome awesomeness will be awesomely awesome!
07-15-2011, 12:32 AM
Did you read my characters bio?
Stubborn elf... Stubborn human...
Epic character relationship contrast in future soon!
07-15-2011, 01:37 AM
is there anyone on here not loving you elizabeth? :)
yea i have read all the chars in here, probably will have to read up on them several times though sence i was not gifted with photographic memory XD
07-16-2011, 02:06 AM
I'm back :) Nice of you to join us, GerudoKing. We seem to have a pretty good group here so far! Might call it good, but I don't know, what do you think?
Elizabeth, I don't know how to change the link, and I did go to the request link but so far nothing has happened. I should probably submit it to Roleplay of the Week but if you're happy with this group then I am too!
07-16-2011, 02:18 AM
Call me Eli :)
When you put in a link, there should be two copies of link in the code.
(U R L ="http://example.com"]http://example.com[/ U R L)
(I spaced out the code so you could see it)
See the bold? You can change that part, so it would be like this.
Click to See! :D my awesome example leads you to... (http://role-player.net)
Why not submit it? Couldn't hurt.
You are the Mod of this RP~ tis your choice when to start.
07-16-2011, 10:40 PM
Hehe, i just totally stole that right now! XD Good advice, Elizabeth! :D Thank you very much! :D
I am glad there are people of brains here, god knows i have none XD
07-17-2011, 03:12 AM
Okay, I am going to try this! I hope it worked!
Darn, that did NOT work! I'm going to have to try and keep messing with that.
07-17-2011, 03:22 AM
Keep trying, mate! <3
07-17-2011, 07:24 PM
Oh so very confused! Hate URLS and codes and...confusing stuff and why am I so horrible at this stuff?!?! It's like I was born to be technology impaired!
07-17-2011, 07:52 PM
Don't worry about it then... I don't know how else to show you! :(
07-17-2011, 08:58 PM
When is this going to go active?? My fingers are itching for some RP action!!
The adrenaline is rising with every breath, give me release! XD
07-18-2011, 12:33 AM
Lol I am too! I'm just debating if we should still wait for more people to join or not...think I just want to go for it, I've been dying for LOTR role-play! It's going to be the fellowship of elves, one dwarf, one human and one human/elf!
Oh and forgive me if I get the names of the regions/characters wrong! It's been a long time since I've read or seen the books.
07-18-2011, 12:41 AM
It's ok... I'm pretty sure well all understand, and help keep each other on the right track.
Hm. I'd suggest asking some people you know if they'd join. Just shoot them a message, but remind them, no more elves please... One more human would be good.
So wait a few more hours, do some personal advertising, and then post an IC.
07-18-2011, 12:51 AM
Oops, too late! I just posted the IC, but we can still accept people. I'll go try to advertise though!
07-18-2011, 02:05 AM
I'll check it out mate.
07-18-2011, 02:03 PM
I know it's not the most amazing intro ever sorry!
07-18-2011, 02:58 PM
what?! the IC's up?? please, give us a link or something!
07-18-2011, 03:00 PM
I did give a link, it's on my first post! Or my second post...suppose to be on first though! XD
07-18-2011, 03:08 PM
ok then, I'm posting ASAP
07-18-2011, 03:12 PM
Sweetness! Oh and I posted the RP in the Game directory, so hopefully that will help!
07-18-2011, 03:17 PM

07-18-2011, 03:40 PM
I can't wait either :) Oh and I posted as well! I will be right back, got some things to do!

Please note that the themes in this RP will have to stay on the PG-13 level.
I'm dropping out the "M" rated in the IC title, because otherwise I'll need to move this RP to Mature.
If you feel like you want to go for higher themes, PM me and I'll move this RP to Mature.
Have fun guys =D

07-24-2011, 09:39 AM
Here is one of the Minor Characters from the books, and as such, if accepted is only going to have a minor roll in the Rp:
Age: 12,000+ years
What side your on: Good
Title: The Shipwright, Lord of the Falas, Lord of Balar, Master of the Grey Havens
Profession: Shipwright , Mariner
Personality: Círdan had a profound effect upon the course of Middle-earth history. He was a loyal servant and friend of Elwë, sacrificing his heart’s desire in search of him. This loyalty and sense of duty shows up numerous times over the course of history, including his second sacrifice in his submission to the Valar, and his sending of troubling and potentially destructive rumors to his overlord Thingol. He was also the most foresighted of the elves, a gift from the Valar. He conceivably saved Elven civilization with the founding of the havens at the Mouths of the Sirion, and with the fostering of both Gil-galad and Eärendil. His precious gift of Narya to Gandalf was also timely and valuable. He was clearly favored by Ulmo, seen by the number messages passed through him.
Círdan was a Sindar, and Lord of the Falathrim during the First Age. He was one of the wisest and most foresighted of the Elves, and by the Second Age the oldest known elf in Middle-earth, to remain so throughout that age and the Third Age. He was also awarded Narya, one of the Three Rings, until he surrendered it to Gandalf. He was one of the last elves in Middle-earth, sailing West at last probably sometime in the Fourth Age.
Lindon remained his home throughout the Second and Third Ages. Throughout the Second Age, Lindon was under the direct rule of High King Gil-galad. At the time of the fall of Eregion, Celebrimbor sent two of the Three Rings north to the High King, and Gil-galad in turn passed one of these to Círdan; Narya, the Ring of Fire. At the end of the Second Age, Gil-galad fell in the War of the Last Alliance, leaving Lindon without a ruler. His natural heir would have been Elrond, who had long since removed to Imladris, and so Círdan took on the leadership of the Elves west of the Blue Mountains.
The early years of the Third Age were, for Círdan and the elves, mostly a time to catch their breaths after the fall of Sauron in the War of the Alliance. For more than a thousand years they went undisturbed,but at around T.A. 1050 a shadow began to lengthen. Though many deemed that Sauron was defeated forever, for the first time in many centuries some evil was stirring, and awake. It was at this time the Istari, sent by the Valar, came. Círdan was one of the few of the Wise left; of the other ancient elves, only Celeborn, Galadriel, Glorfindel (who was resurrected), and Elrond remained. He was the most foresighted of all of them, and alone knew the true purpose of the Istari. He also saw deep into the future of Gandalf, and gave him Narya, his greatest possession and one of the most secret and sought-after treasures in the world.
Círdan invited onto the White Council when it was formed in 2463 in response to the rise of the Necromancer, whose identity was at that point concealed. Galdor was his messenger to Rivendell, though for reasons unknown. It may be that he, too, felt the growing shadow, even as his friend Gandalf did. Sent by Círdan "on errand", Galdor attended the Council of Elrond, speaking with authority on his lord’s behalf.

Sorry I was away! I think I might just play Elrond and hopefully Elizabeth post ASAP. Grand Cleric, I hate to say this, but I don't think you've read all the posts, we don't need anymore elves. We need different races to mix things up a bit. Sorry.
07-24-2011, 10:43 PM
:blush:Oops sorry i only read the characters posted.
hey no Worries, but if things balance out race wise please let me know :)
07-24-2011, 11:43 PM
It's okay, I do that too sometimes. I will let you know for sure :)
07-25-2011, 05:55 AM
WOOT!! No one took my character yet. Yuuuss! -arm thrust- lol. Immature moment, sorry. Just very excited to be here. n.n I'm new to the forum, but not to RPing. I think "Eli" is familiar with Storm's game he's trying to run right now too. Also LotR, but in the Mature section and rather serious beans. This sounds like it might be a better place for me to start and get used to things. Now... onto business:
Before I post my profile thinger, I'd like to say that I WILL be taking an official character as well (Sees we have a Princess already. Hi hi there. lol) But would like to jump in at a certain point of the films since you're all playing fan-made characters. Said person I wish to take, is Boromir of Gondor. Now, what I was thinking of doing was this; The point he dies, he is struck by arrows and dies, (most likely from lung shot or internal bleeding). Either way, it really isn't that horrible of a wound, just too serious for a mortal to survive. Could it be possible to make things AU and have something magical happen.. bringing him back from death? I mean, with all these orcs and uglies born from the earth in sacks, Sauron, and god knows what else after Frodo is also healed by the elves.. do you think it not possible? Rare, yes, but possible?
Let me know what you think first, then I'll submit my form. Thanks!!
07-25-2011, 03:06 PM
I like GlassSnake! Go ahead and join :) Kinda works well considering Riniel is a healer XD
07-25-2011, 06:19 PM
Whoohoo!! I LIVE ON! FOR GONDOR!! -runs off with banner to get the character sheet stats to fill out-
Name: Boromir of Gondor
What side your on: Good
Title: Steward of Gondor
Profession: Leader, sword fighter, battle tactician
Appearance: Dirty blond hair just above the shoulders. Goatee. Crimson under robes with gold leafing, with heavy leather armored jacketing over top. Still owns his battle horn, wooden round shield and long sword, to which he was buried with.
Personality: Without the ring to tempt him, Boromir was truly a man of esteem. He was loyal, noble and cared deeply for the well being of his people and friends. He took battle with a smile at times, laughing in the face of danger like it was a game. It showed in him, the many years of battle that he stood at the front lines, ready to take on the worst for the name of his kingdom.
07-25-2011, 06:22 PM
Darnit. I'm out of time this morning. At least the profile is posted. I left out History because I was in a bit of a rush, and half the people here SHOULD know it. -sweatdrops-
When I get a chance to sit and read again, I'll go through and read all the posts in the IC thread, then post. Glad to be aboard!
07-25-2011, 08:26 PM
hey guys, sorry that i haven't posted in a while, I've been gone to y grandpa's all weekend and haven't been anywhere near a computer.
07-26-2011, 03:10 PM
It's okay, we're still waiting for Elizabeth to post.
07-27-2011, 01:53 PM
Okay, does anyone want to play Elrond for this short bit? I will if no one else wants to, but I'd rather not since I'm scared I'll mess up. So I thought I'd ask everyone else and see if someone would be interested.
Ah, I suppose I could.....but I would probably suck. lol
07-28-2011, 05:44 PM
If you don't want to that's fine, we can wait for other people and see if they want to.
No, I can do it. Ill study up on his speech patterns...maybe that will help. I can play my dad. :D
07-28-2011, 08:55 PM
I can do it if needed. but I'll only do it until after the meeting
07-28-2011, 11:19 PM
find it on google and copy/paste? >.<
07-28-2011, 11:46 PM
Yes, that IS an option.. But also, its good to have some kind of authentic speech to this, since it's new characters, the story will change alot..
Yeah, Elrond should make his appearance soon, i reckon XD
I was thinking more along the lines of looking at the way he speaks and adding it to our RP. More like copy paste edit.
07-28-2011, 11:52 PM
O.o Well, then, screw authentic XD
*grins* Ill put it up tomorrow.
07-29-2011, 03:40 AM
I'll be unavailable tomorrow from 8AM to 4PM California time
07-29-2011, 04:01 AM
Posting for Elrond, despite us not having much else for people in the true fellowship.
The story needs to move forewords and progress, rather then stand still. If the thread is going to be mostly original characters, then we'll just do the story that way. -shrugs- But I don't wanna wait a month for people to pick up the spots for Aragorn, etc. I wanna play. And I anticipate everyone else does too. So lets blow this Popsicle stand!! Er... I mean... "House of Elves". XD
07-29-2011, 04:28 AM
good job GlassSnake, I doubt I could have done a better job-or anyone for that matter.
07-29-2011, 05:02 AM
-bows!- Wow.. thank you! I didn't think I did THAT well, but thanks. I tried my best. Hopefully people aren't too upset that I went ahead and skipped a bit of the meeting (you'll see what I mean in the IC thread), but I felt it too important to AU anything that's said there.
As for where this is headed now, I think it's important that Steph make the final decision. This is her thread, after all, and I don't want to take control of the story away from her.
Stepherz, please PM me with your wishes as to where you would like Elrond to send the OC characters, and then I can act that out. You don't need to tell me story secrets, just where you wish them to go, or what tasks they've been given.
07-29-2011, 04:26 PM
I doubt people will be joining as original characters, that's why we're making our own fellowship. I like Sam though, so I'm playing him :) Anyways I PMed you Glass and I guess the last thing is, who wants to take the ring? I was going to have Sam take it if no one else wants to.
07-31-2011, 06:42 AM
I assumed we were going to go along the original story, so that's what I posted. but, if someone else takes it, I'll adjust my post.
07-31-2011, 07:23 PM
What side your on:Good
Appearance:http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/4333/52669815.jpg This is the best I could find. There's such a lack of female dwarf art out there!!
Personality: Wethra has a fierce loyalty to her race and on the whole distrusts elves. She can seem cold and does not give her good will easily and her friendship even less so, however once given her friendship and loyalty run as deep as the roots of her mountain home. She is not compassionate but she does have good intuition about most things. She is apathetic to all except those closest to her and this is her greatest failing. She loves Middle Earth and especially the mountains with which she feels a strong connection. This is the reason she hates Sauron and why she has left her mountain home to fight against his evil for she is someone who woul fight to the bitter end for that which she cares about.
History: Wethra was born upon Mt Gundabad, birthplace of Durin and she is closely related with that line for her family has lived there for uncountable years. As a young dwarfling of 5 she began learning the art of Weaponcrafting and swiftly gained in prowess. She spent much of her time wandering the mountain paths and it was through this that her passion for the mountains was kindled in her heart. When she was 15 Wethra and her parents visited their kin who dwelt in the Lonely Mountain. There she found weaponsmiths of great skill from which she learned much, mastering the craft faster than she had before. She also gained aquaintance with Thrain, King under the Mountain and he began teaching her to wield a sword and battle Axe, skills she also excelled at. For 5 years she trained and practiced there until the dragon came. Smaug killed her parents but their sacrifice allowed her to escape with Thrain through the hidden passage, out of the Lonely Mountain. After her parents death Thrain adopted her and her loyalty to him and his family swiftly became unshakable. She fought with them in the war against the Orcs of Hithaeglir and battled alongside Thorin, Thrain's son, in the battle at Nanduhirion. She came with Train upon his quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain but when he was lost in the forest of Mirkwood she did not return to Thorin's Halls in Ered Luin. She wandered in grief into the Misty Mountains and eventually made her home upon Caradhras. There she slay's the Orcs that swarm from Moria and tames the great wolves that prowl the mountain passes.
