I apologize about that. Should have explained myself. Thanks, Firefoot. But good news - Pop's been talking about getting internet at home, and Mom's rather pressing for it, and that helps lots. We'll see if I don't have it at home in a little while. . .then I'll be posting more constistantly.

I'll go see what's happening at the Mead Hall. . .

EDIT: LmP, since you haven't moved the time ahead, can I go ahead and write the necessary post? I honestly don't know what Thornden is going to say, but if it's still alright, I can write that and have it up before too long. What do you think?

I'm thinking, the position of Chamberer(hmm can't seem to find the Anglo-Saxon equivalant) would best suit Æðelhild, that would put her under Saeryn's supervision I would think and might make her a bit more at ease.

Chamber is from Old French; in other words, it's a word the Normans brought with them in 1066. Curse 'em!

The closest Old English is 'cofa' which is related to modern English, "coffin". Heh.

Other alternatives are naming the role for an aspect of it such as Cinderella; cinder girl.

I got it! Barmaid. What do you think?

EDIT: I just read your great post, Nerindel: chambermaid it is, unless you can think of a better.

LmP, I can't think of anything constructive to write for Thornden until later in the RPG day. . .so unless you're expecting some sort of reply from him sooner, I'll have to wait until you jump the time until afternoon or so. I'm fine with waiting, as long as you weren't expecting anything sooner.

I figured I'd give you an out, Folwren, by not including something like "Eodwine waited for Thornden to respond". It occurs to me that one of the things Thornden is going to figure out is that the job of steward and that of almbudsman can't be done by one person in a 'manor' as sprawling as the Middle Emnet (which I still have to figure out on a map). So after some time, Thornden might tell Eodwine that he has discovered this, say, after coming back to the Mead hall after the sun has set some night.

I'm thinking that the next Day will be seven days after this one, unless anybody would like to have the next Day come sooner.

One other thought: usually, the action that takes place, does so in the Inn, and anything outside the Inn is reserved for afterthought. This being a Mead Hall with lands attached, we may have to allow some posts to be written away from the mead hall. For example, the almbudsman can go to a farmstead and have a talk with the freeman who owns it, and request to collect such and such a fee. Just a thought. If we handle it well, it shouldn't be a problem; this thread should help. Thoughts?

1420!

On your 'away' posts - why don't you just tag them with a bolded line above the post:

Away - Cráwham Village

or something like that . . .

Be easy to follow that way - especially if there were more than one 'away' situation happening at a time.

Forgoil? Help me out. Looks like it means something like 'bad luck'.

This is going to be interesting, Anguirel. I like how you've built tension into the Eorling Mead Hall story. Especially concerning a certail Eorl of the Middle Emnet.

You see, Eodwine of the Gap used to be a humble farmer who owned land in the Gap of Rohan; had a wife and two kids. He was called to the muster of Rohan, and went to War, but when he got back he discovered that his wife and children, and farm, had been desolated by the Dunlendings. He was one of the leaders of the reprisals (he called it justice-seeking) against the Dunlendings. So this'll be interesting.

So says Ardalambion.

But the other names, like Caerissin, are they something Celtic? It would seem historically appropriate that the Old English Rohirrim would've invaded the lands of the Celtic language Dunlendings.

Let us consider, for the purposes of Eorling Mead Hall, Alcarillo, that the Rohirrim have indeed invaded the lands of the Dunlendings, as a reprisal for the Dunlending alliance to Saruman. I've had an rpg idea on the back burner .... in which Eodwine is appointed Warden of the Dunland Marches, in which he is ordered by Eomer to (1) bolster the defenses along the new border (2) impose Rohirric rule and law upon the folk of Dunland that are within the new border (3) give swift reprisal against Dunlending attacks onto the new Rohorric land.

Now it has to be someone beside Eodwine, since the man has a new Eorlship to deal with instead, but I still like the idea. It's a replaying of English history without the Norman influence, more or less.

I'd like to see Manywyth (is that right) brought into the mead hall before I make a post for Eodwine.

Hello

Pio was kind enough to send me a message in mid-January suggesting that I take a peek at Littlemanpoet's discussion thread for the Eorling Mead Hall, which I have finally gotten to now that I am done preparing various projects at work. I am intrigued and attracted! However, I hesitate to propose a permanent character due to RL constraints -- my availability to post depends on what time of year it is.

However, I saw that Eodwine, as Eorl of the Mid Emnet, has holdings away from the mead hall itself...LMP, may I play a character from one of the freeholds? For example, a farmer would be expected to send provisions to the lord periodically. That would enable me come and go (so to speak) as I need to and would provide a character to interact with others in the Hall. If something like that would work, let me know.

By all means, Dunwen,, I like the idea! Feel free to introduce your farmer at any time.

Feanor, it's still the same day - roughly lunch time. Falco has been a very late riser this day.

Yes, Anguirel, I'm finding it intriguing too. Especially with how Falco changes the whole dynamic.

Great Heaven's above! You would have me figure out an answer, wouldn't you?

Well, at least I'm here today, so I'll be able to answer it before Tuesday. *sigh* We'll see what poor Thornden can do.

Anguirel, tell me. . .did your character (I can't spell his name) really call Eodwine a lout and plunderer? I thought he did but, I couldn't be quite sure. That's so. . .insulting.

Not exactly.

He said that just as to Eodwine he looked like an outlaw, to him, Eodwine looked like a lout or a plunderer. Then he blamed it on cultural heritage.

Manawyth's really a rather liberal chap!

Aye, a little liberal in a place where it's not exactly healthy for a Dunlending to be liberal.

I was going to take you off the hook with my latest post, but you snuck it in there, as was your right and priviledge. I'm eager to see what Manawyth does with this latest twist in the plot. By the way, this is a gas! Great writing! I really like the way the various characters have reacted across the board, from Gárwine's truly Rohirric attitude (not unlike Eodwine's) to the 'not knowing' of Gudryn, to the reserved judgement of Thornden, to the open mindedness of Saeryn and others. Great variety!

Ppfft and twaddle and fiddle de dee. Did you raise any objections to the idea?

And anyways, I think Fordim had dibs on the harpist, didn't he?

Ah, yes, I see. I was wondering about that. It was a great post. Will have to rep the both of you on it somehow.

I'll do my best to get a post up today, but my right hand is bandaged (almost) entirely, so typing is slowed down considerably. But, I'll do my best, as I said.

lol Yes me too, a very nicely constructed post you two. Just enough to keep us guessing I love it the whole turn about with Eodwine swearing an oath to Searyn was great. I would have rep you but apparently I still have to spread it about a bit more

I too will try to get something up for Aeolhild tonight.

Anguirel how recent is Manawyth's injury? Aeolhild may know of something that can take down the swelling if it is recent.

I've noticed that a couple of you are around right now and just thought that with my cross-posting with Nerindel I would let you know in case some of you read it before I edited it that I did edit the first couple lines or so of my post. Just a bit about noticing Adhel's pouring of their wine for more continuity and in case it eventually leads somewhere.

And in that quote, I believe it is meant as Falco addressing Adhel and calling her girl, not meaning that the Dunlending is a girl.

the girl being a referance to Aeolhild not Manawyth but anyway I decided to take it out to save any further confusion.

My turn to cross post. Thanks firefoot I will check it out

Just so you know what direction I've finally decided to take with this:

The first few days, the carpenters are going to be erecting a canvas tent - quite large - to serve as the temporary dining area for the mead hall; which could get dicey in bad weather, so that the mead hall can afterward be properly constructed by the carpenters et. al.

Where is this tent going to be raised? Well, that's a puzzle, because I don't have a clear idea of the layout of the land that this old White Horse Inn lay on, just that it was in Edoras. I'll have to give that some thought. At any rate, the carpenters are busy at work outside for the first couple of days.

Any questions?

I am thinking of adding a character to the Hall, but more as a guest than an employee. Is the Hall open for business, or should I wait until things are more settled?

Be it known that I do not yet have a particular character in mind.

You certainly don't have to wait! You might find it fun to be a guest in the middle of all the hubbub of construction and tear-down. Soon as you're ready.

Awesome. I've never played anywhere here but the Green Dragon. May I just walk in IC once I have a character, or should I give warning here?

EDIT: I'm thinking that my character will be a Gondorian woman from Belfalas, and a cousin of Lothiriel. That will be a good excuse for a visit, don't you think?

I have introduced my character, Lin, in the Hall. Marenil is temporary only, I needed his viewpoint to properly introduce her.

Firefoot has been trapped in the Barrow!
Alcarillo, is there anything you would have Garwine say before Leof rushes off to help Jenny's characters? Or, you know, we can go with the awkward silence variety...
