A breeze is blowing. Rg will give the moth a little ride into camp so he gets to the right tent.

Oh, Raddy . . . you got some splainin' to do!

Post done - the moth and bird are peering down the smoke hole . . .

I am interested in how Aiwendil plans on making his entrance.

Child let me know if you think any of the back story for this character should be changed. I will pm you when I get more time regarding the dream.

Many thanks! I will have a closer look after I return from work.

I was trying to eat my breakfast when I read this post and I almost keeled over with laughter. I love the free transportation! (However, I'm not so sure about Aiwendil....)

And where is Rg off to?

My post for the party in Gondor/Baran meets the King and gets his face known is up. Pio is on her way home and will drop Baran off at the Inn.

I'll wait to see what Thorn does before I post for Rg. He is, of course, no longer in bird form.

I thought that once Saelon heads back to Gondor on the Star it will take about 9 days for him get there (upriver and all that). How does that sound?

I'm going to introduce 2 characters whose complete bios I haven't worked out as yet. There will be an older brother, Mus'ad, about 40 y/o, and his younger brother, Nizar, about 33. Mus'ad and his brother are rather low-end, poor cousin types of the Wyrm Clan. Mus'ad is not the brightest or most ambitious of men but he understands well which side his bread is buttered on. Wyrma has 'engaged' him to keep an eye on the doings of her son Tinar. She has also, on occasion, used him for various nefarious deeds which require some stealth but not a lot of independent thinking.

So Rg is no longer a bird? Hmmm....

I have inserted a post for Rg in Child's last post to clue Thorn into where and what he is at the moment.

For Eru's sake, Aiwendil, don't crush the nervous little guy.

And btw, thank goodness he has no sense of smell because I think the old fellow could use a shower . . .

Hilde,

Very good, especially the overturned pot at the end!

Mithadan and Airefalas,

So you two have managed to get lost and trapped in an alleyway. Humpf! Don't expect too much sympathy from Rma. Perhaps, if you had agreed to take her along as your local guide, you would not now find yourself in these dire circumstances....

Here is a sketchy bio for the fellows who work for Wyrma.

The Two Brothers:

City dwellers from an unremarkable, and failing branch of the Wyrm Clan.

Musad 40 years old; short, thin, and wiry with scraggly black hair, dark brown eyes and a sallow olive complexion. His face is thin and pinched and a little rat-like in appearance. Has two shapes he can assume with some ease: a small lizard and a scruffy pigeon.

Not the brightest bulb in the socket but brighter than -

Nizar 33 years old; shorter than Musad by several inches, same physical characteristics except that his nose is normally red and drippy owing to a wide range of allergies. He wears an old, stretched out, nondescript knit scarf around his neck. His shape-changes are restricted to being a dung-beetle or as similarly scruffy a pigeon as his brother.

A certain level of creature comfort is their primary goal in life. And they have a grasp on the fact that serving Wyrma to the best of their ability will afford them some measure of security. She finds them dependable, though they are neither of them self-starters or independent thinkers. Given well-spelled out parameters and instructions they function quite well. At present she has them keeping an eye on her son, Tinar.

Goodness folks! All heck has broken out in the encampment! What a run of apparent bad luck. As for skewering Rog, I don't think Thorn is up for kabobs roasted over a tent fire... At least as I write this...hmm....

Question

ummm.. I just noticed that there are two Duilins: one partying with Pio in Gondor, while the other stands with Saelon on the deck of the Lonely Star in Umbar.

Is this intentional? If so, I, for one, stand to be very confused later on...

Can you go back to your post, #48, and change the two "Duilin" names in it to "Derylin", please.

I'll have the fellow in Gondor be Derylin, and you can keep one of the sailors on the Star as Duilin.

Thanks!

Aiwendil's sleeves are quite voluminous . . . and contain an eclectic assortment of various and insundry 'interesting' things . . . that and a loosely rolled ball of yarn from all the wool-gathering . . .

Poor Rg . . . that you would even consider skewering him . . . He's just a mild-mannered traveler . . . hasn't hurt a flea . . .

Whoops! She's snoring away now, but I think she can be awakened!.......

********************************

Seriously, I apologize for not responding sooner. I had originally intended for her to wake up just before dawn and spy the eagle....and then I let it slip my mind, since the night plot developed more slowly. But I think it would be good to go ahead right now with the encounter. I've done a save.

I do have one or two questions about the extent to which Rama can communicate with the bird, or tell that she is different from other creatures. I will read your post again and check with you by pm early this afternoon.

I've deleted my "save" and added my post to the end of the thread. Sorry it is SO LONG (again) but I had a lot of ground to cover...

Child - Mith & Aire are now dismounting outside your caves.

Mith - I hope you don't mind that I went ahead & moved our guys to catch up with Rma. I had a request to move things along to that point, so there it is. If there is something you would like for me to add or change, please let me know.

I'm leaving for a two week vacation in a couple of hours. I had hoped to manage a post for both Wyrma and Tinar today, but caring for an ill family member took more time than I expected. I will try; if I do not succeed, I will do flashbacks when I'm back. Tinar will continue following the Gondorians into the desert.

edit: I did post - see you all in two weeks!

Tinar is headed down toward the entrance to the caves, followed by Mus'ad.

Esty

Have a good trip!

We'll gently carry Tinar along - I was thinking that he could do a change into something small enough to hitch a ride on one of the camels . . . as will Mus'ad and Nizar . . .

This OK with you, Nerindel?

That's fine with me, I will have Hasrim return with news that Tinar has foolishly entered the desert unprepared. I was going to have him go personally to inform Wyrma of events but I think as Esty will be away I will just leave a note.

Are Aiwendil and Narika speaking to each other in the clan dialect? Or in a more common speech?

Pio,

This wasn't one of the points we mulled, but my guess would be in a clannish dialect. That would be once Rma gets some sense of who the Eagle is.

Any other thoughts, Nerindel?

The reason I was asking is that when Rg was 'visiting' Surinen and friend in the desert - they spoke common to him, and used clan dialect to try to hide from him what they were saying to each other. They were unaware that Rg understood them.

Also, when Rg picked Ayar up and took her from the burning tent, he spoke to her in the clan dialect, not the common trading tongue.

Wouldn't Narika wonder how Aiwendil understood the dialect?

Have I missed something somewhere? how did Rama and the eagle become involved in Pio's question regarding Aiwendil and Narika?

If it is that you wish also to enquire as to which language the eagle will use or understand I will answer thus:


She will understand both the common tongue and the dialect of the clans, but it has been a long time since she has found the need to speak either, so initially and more instinctively she will speak the language of the bird that she is, the resounding ouch would have been a slip that she might not even give thought to, or even realised she had uttered. But depending on which tongue Rama uses to speak to her curious intruder, the eagle soon releasing that she does not understand her high pitched squels and Kee, Kee sounds will try to recall the words to answer her accordingly.

does that help?

Another question that comes to mind regarding the dialects of the clans, is weather or not they would vary slightly from clan to clan?

My opinion is that the dialects would vary from clan to clan. And that between the clans might be used either common speech or a traders' dialect.

Families whose main source of livelihood is from the clans on their trade routes would naturally have picked up some of the clan dialects specific to each clan. That's the assumption I've been operating under.

I was under the impression that the dialects should vary greatly from clan to clan, or else Surinen and Narayad would not have spoken so freely infront of Rog. Does that work for everyone? Or have I presented a problem? Maybe they would have a similar root, but have become disimilar as the years have passed, so that there are some shared words but sentence patterns and many words or pronuncations sound strange or unrecognizable. If the clans have chosen to remain somewhat isolated I can see this happening.

Also, for all involved in the Eagle clan's activities, Latah is not a traitor to the clan. Just wanted to make that announcement publicly. She's a good girl, she is, and we have plans for her.

EDIT: I just saw your post Pio, and agree with it. Those who have some need to communicate with the clans might learn some dialects, and also some clansman might also know common speach, but not all because they would not generally need to know it.
