I think it's the best opportunity to cause a bit a mischief. Let's see where Aldarion goes in his wanderings that would also be a likely location for a transient sailor to be.

Just a note: if it's Therian + Branor and Herrenon + Coldan, then remaining we have Asta, Aldarion, Sereth and Amdir. Mnemo, how do you suppose Brinn would distribute them?

Dim - Coldan has no objections, and neither have I, but were we quite there yet? I thought we were still at the rehearsal. Shall we just pretend Harry asks after Brinnosyne or somebody has moved us to the following morning, and I'll have Coldan reply to him then?

And Ang, I forgot to say that your Cirdacil scenes are splendid! (I didn't know rubicund was a word - thanks for enlarging my vocabulary.)

A suggestion vís-a-vís Amdír: in all probability, he's going to be busy getting the sets out of storage, and then doing some hefty modifications to get them suitable for the new tale. As such, if Brinn decides to pair him with anyone, it should probably be someone conscripted to help with the manual labour, and any "research" they do would be incidental or accidental.

Sure, we could do that, Pitch. I had gathered from Nerwen's post in the game that the Players were just deciding to go into the city for information. I might have got it slightly wrong, though.

Brinn and those who were with her were planning the next day. Everyone else should have still been rehearsing but I assumed it just kind of petered out. So my latest post takes place after all of that's done and we're maybe an hour from sundown. Have no clue how good or bad the City Watch is, but it's not a good idea to head out after dark to gather information, plus everyone's still reeling a little from the day's events.

Brinn has made her assignments; you are free to follow them--or not follow them--as you please. If any character sternly objects, speak now or forever hold your peace. Or better yet, hold your peace and then go and do something else on the next day.

Whoever wants to move things ahead to the next day and set off--please do!

Dim, sorry, but my mind is a little blank at the moment, and its past 1 a.m. here. I'll post sometime tomorrow, only I don't yet know when I'll get to it, so in the meantime, if you feel like making Harry and Coldan set out in the Morning (in-game time), that would be wonderful, and I'll take it from there. As a born Gondorian, would Harrenon have an idea where to start investigating?


EDIT:
for Rick Cottontree!

No worries, Pitch. I've written my post and you can take over whenever you have time. I hope Harry's (how come we've started to call Harrenon Harry, anyway?) proposal to visit armouries and smithies isn't too far-fetched and also doable, since I'm afriad I can't think of anything better at four in the morning. To be honest, I initialy thought of a place where records are kept - sort of like Gondor's version of a library, if they had one, which perhaps they did given their level of civilisation - but then dismissed it as much too convenient and easy. I also hope I've got Coldan's speech right. Imitating accents is not really my strong point so if you have anything to correct, feel free.

was originally going to arrive in the morning but as you can see, I couldn't wait and neither could angry angry Cirdacil. I'm afraid I'm going to be away for the rest of today, so I hope this isn't too much of a roadblock. If it is, maybe pretend it hasn't happened, roll on and I can delete it and post it later?

assume as it stands I've caught the lot bar Branor and Therian. Cirdacil has news, desires, questions and orders that principally affect Mistress Celebrindal, Aldarion and Amdir...

Indeed, Amdír as well as Harry and Coldan are on their way already; plus if Cirdacil arrives in the evening, Day One is extended ad infinitum. Maybe, Ang, the simplest solution would be to have it happen early next morning, after Amdír, Coldan and Harrenon have set out, but with the rest of the troupe still at the inn? Luckily, Nerwen's post was ambiguous enough about the daytime to allow for that, if we decide on it.

Dim, your post is fine. I'll take us to an armourer's shop, and we'll see who we run across there. I think I have an idea...
(As for Harry, it seemed a natural abbreviation to me. Looks like you've caught the virus)

In terms of time line, just bear in mind that Branor and Therian won't have returned by morning, so anything they've done or are doing won't be known yet by the others.

I'm assuming for now that it is the next morning, and that a number of our party have already left to do their info-gathering.

One other thing--the carts are still in the courtyard; someone, at least, is probably sleeping in them for security's sake, but those who wanted to jump at the opportunity of getting better beds had the chance to do so. Post coming shortly.

Yes, I think that's the most workable solution. I will edit my post to take place after the sun has risen and if Ang does the same thing it should be fine.

I suppose Branor and Therian can decide whether or not they returned to their rooms or the carts before Cirdacil arrived.

All right- I've changed my post. The sun has just come up and Amdir and Coldan/Harrenon left just before Cirdacil showed up. I don't know where Branor and Therian are.

Ang- if you could just do a very slight edit to change your timing we should be fine.

We're not quite at the armourer's yet, because I had the idea to take Harry and Coldan to Lamedon Square Market, which I assume would be somewhere near our inn. Fea and Formy, if you feel like writing a cameo for either of your characters from that game, that would be nice, but if you don't have the time I'll just have us continue on our way.

ok - I'm changing from evening to morning?

EDIT: done. Funny, when I posted I didn't have Formendacil's previous one to go on, even though according to the times he got in a while before I did. Sorry about the slight chaos. Still, remember we're in good company, Othello has a double time line etc...

Nerwen, Pippin calls Merry one in RotK, and if we're not allowed to use words whose older, less offensive meanings have changed, then that throws out "queer" and "gay" in their original contexts as well--both of which were also used by JRRT in LotR itself. (So yes, I did intend "donkey." So did J.M. Barrie, no doubt.)

Thanks for the heads-up, and if a mod wants me to change it, I shall--but I was already thinking about it as I posted and decided to go with it since this particular word has a slightly different historical status from the others.

You can always put it in this way.

Any curse that appears in The Hobbit or RotK is fine with me - but apparently not with the Barrow-Downs programming. (Not even a mod can put in the original word as you can see because I tried to edit it in on your post.)

pio, didn't even realize it was edited out! And I'm sure as Shiretalk I've seen a few 'Downers slip a Big Big D which made it past.

I'll try to get up a response to Anguirel's post later this evening; unfortunately, I have a lot of other writing on my plate tonight, and this time it's for RL.

Just to make this clear about the censoring business: I wasn't saying, "bad Mnemo!", I was letting you know the word had been edited out automatically. The program evidently just has a list of words it checks for, regardless of context.

As a matter of some interest, I just made a list of the first fifteen or so 'bad' words off the top of my head, and only two were censored.

Anyone who can find a Tolkien canon use of a swear word should please PM me the reference.

See HERE for a ss

And, I wouldn't try using this word outside the RPG's in this forum. The other mods will not look kindly on it, I'm sure.

It's been quite a busy weekend for me, I should learn not to pack everything into a 2-day period. I'm beat but caught up on all the action.

Post of Branor and Therian running into Coldan and Harrenon at the Lamedon market will come when I wake up tomorrow, unless we're moving up the time line?

Anguirel, just as a warning, Brinn is not going to come to the common room on Cirdacil's terms--she's not going to be able to negotiate nearly as well after being bodily carried into the common room, and I doubt that Cirdacil would want to negotiate in such a public setting anyhow--which would mean she'd have to be moved further.

It was so tempting to pull Rollan out of there before before you could write Cirdacil intervening. But I restrained myself. I suspect that he shall, but would really appreciate it if he didn't--hate to see this come to an explosion so early on before we figure out what the other has to say.

The conflict might be inherent in our characters, though.

(And they say Werewolf is stressful! )

Looks like Rollan got lucky...

Pitch, I did the best I could with Coldan's accent and representing his general feelings. If I need to make any edits, let me know.
