The purpose of the story is to: Find and rescue Thin-Gloomy the Dwarf.

This means we will know the story is over when: we find and rescue him.

Timeframes:

This game takes place in the 3rd Age at around year 1300.

The storyline itself or plot covers 1 week – 2 weeks.

This game requires a time commitment of 8 weeks from me, the game owner and from the major players.

Glirdan’s character


NAME: Glirdingo

AGE: 72

RACE: Elf

GENDER: Male

WEAPONS: An oak walking stick, a bow with a quiver full of arrows and a short sword.

APPEARANCE: Very fair skin with long blond hair and deep, grey-blue eyes

PERSONALITY/STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: Caring, sensitive, easygoing and pretty much carefree is his personality. His Elven eyesight has always been a great strength and his shot with a bow is uneasily matched. His greatest weakness is his ability to trust which gets him into a lot of trouble.

HISTORY: Was born and raised in Lorien. He found a bottle in the river Nimrodel which first led him on his quest in the Great Golden Hoard adventure.

--------------------------------------------

FIRST POST FOR THE GAME

The Elf sat with his back against the side of the cold, hard wall, re-reading the letter he had received. His long blonde hair fell straight back, glistening in the sunlight that was shining on him from the East. For the sun had just risen and Glirdingo had just arrived in Rohan.

He sighed and looked up from the parchment. The letter was an important one. The Dwarf Thin-Gloomy, (“The one who beat me in a race!”) had been kidnapped and a message was sent (or so he assumed) to the other contestants.

He shook his head and started thinking. “Why did I even come? I don’t even like Dwarves! I just hope that Galadster or Kafkalina show up for this…” For he had gone on an expedition with them shortly after the Great Golden Hoard race to Fangorn. He had seen many interesting things on that expedition. But he vowed to himself never to repeat them. “For people would be frightened if I did,” he thought sadly.

He got up and started pacing back and forth, debating whether or not to enter the Inn. For the letter had said to meet the caretaker inside. But he felt wary. For he did not know the land of Rohan to well for the only time he had ventured forth from his home in Lorien was on the quest for the Great Golden Hoard and his expedition with Galadster and Kafkalina.

He continued pacing back and forth, sometimes stopping and looking at the Inn, sometimes to look East. But most often, he looked North East to where his home lay. He was just about to decide to go in when his eyes looked out and saw a figure approaching. He couldn’t tell who it was for they had their head bowed.

He continued to watch the stranger until he (or she) had come straight up to him. “Good day to you stranger! And who might you be?”

Crystal Heart’s character

NAME: Arianna

AGE: 70

RACE: Elf

GENDER: Female

WEAPONS: A typical Elf bow and arrows and a traditional Elf sword.

APPEARANCE: Pale white skin and long near black hair. She has silver-grey eyes.

PERSONALITY/STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: Arianna is a very odd Elf. She is happy, bouncy, and somehow just completely different then her elven relatives. She loves being outdoors. Strength: Loyalty and skill with her sword. Weakness: Family.

HISTORY: She was born in Lorien. Her father didn't want her getting hurt so he sent her older brother on the quests and kept her at home to become a lady of the house instead.

--------------------------------------------

Crystal Heart’s post

She watched the elf from beneath her hood of soft blue as she approached the in. She smiled. He hadn't changed since the last time she had saw him. Well, she had to take back that thought. He was grown into an elven man now. The last time she saw him he had been just an elven lad, running along the river with her. He had found something that had led him away from Lorien and from her.

She had missed him. He had been her good friend. Since their lives had changed it was so hard not to look at him and remember a simpler time. She had never imagined that she would find him here. Especially not in Rohan.

She was only in Rohan because her father had finally allowed her to go on a quest. She had finally finished and she had wanted to take a break before she headed back. She never dreamed she would have ran into him.

“Good day to you stranger! And who might you be?” She asked him with a bright smile, pulling back her hood to reveal herself. She wondered if he would remember her.

Valesse’s character


NAME: Valesseka

AGE: 20 (365 day calendar)/24 (300 day calendar)

RACE: Human

GENDER: Female

WEAPONS: A "stave" which is actually the remains of a broken pitch fork and a hatchet.

APPEARANCE: Long mousey brown hair with a fair face. Muscular and tall build, but not completely free of "pudge".

PERSONALITY/STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: Vain and quick to assumption, perhaps even a bit fickle in her thinking, Valesseka is used to hard work and long hours, but apparently not used to social much casual interaction with different races or social classes from her own.

HISTORY: Hailing from central Arnor, Valesseka found an abandoned bottled beside a building in her hometown which led her to go questing for gold in the Great Golden Hoard.

--------------------------------------------

Valesse’s post


Valesseka glared at the parchement furiously. Convinced, somehow, that it was from a certain nobleman who at their parting she imagined travelling far to the south and east never to be seen again. She wanted desperately to know what the unknown symbols read, so much so that after a day of scowlling at them she gave in and asked for someone to read it to her.

It wasn't from Eomerleo, nor did it mention him specifically, but from the wording she felt there was a real chance of seeing her fellow traveller once again. Wasting no time she collected her things and set out for Rohan. The Arnorian moved quickly southward, somewhat glazing over the world around her, and used the same method she had in racing those months ago.

At the door of the White Horse she paused somewhat expecting to hear that crazed shouting she once heard at the Sea of Rhun. Smirking to herself she shook her head and made her way to the door.

Thinlómien’s character


NAME: Thin-Gloomy. Had previously a different name but has chosen to forget it.

AGE: 84 (Not a young dwarf anymore since he's from a lesser and short-lived house, but not a gaffer yet either.)

RACE: dwarf (from the Iron Hills)

GENDER: male

WEAPONS: used to have a big, broad-blade knife called the Thistle-cleaver and a crossbow with ten bolts, but they were taken away when Thin-Gloomy was captured.

APPEARANCE: Thin-Gloomy is short for a dwarf. (What would be an appropriate height?) He is bandylegged, slightly hunchbacked and skinny. His complexion is papery and pox has left faint marks on his face. His sparse hair and beard are mat black. His small eyes are deep-set and so dark brown they're almost black. Thin-Gloomy is an ugly creature.

PERSONALITY/STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: Thin-Gloomy is grumpy, grudgy and suspicious of everything. His a cynic and his sense of humour is somehow crooked. He is wary of strangers and embittered of old wrongs. He has a low self-esteem, though it has improved greatly during the Great Golden Hoard race.
Thin-Gloomy is a badly trained craftsman and knows how to work stone, wood and coal.
Thin-Gloomy's crooked back and bowed legs give him some physical limits.

HISTORY: Thin-Gloomy was born in the Iron Hills. He had two brothers, both healthy, strong and comely. His parents let him live, but there was never much love for him in the family. He grew in his brothers' shadow. He was continuously bullied by all the people, both children and adults.

His only friend was an old clerk. Alongside with reading and writing, she taught him the use of crossbow. When she died of old age, Thin-Gloomy saw no reason to stay in the Iron Hills any more and left for his fortune with his weak craftsman training.

Years wandering about north-east Middle-Earth and bad jobs taught him more about craftsmanship than his teachers back home ever. He learned more of human and dwarf nature than he would have wanted to. Wherever he went, he was mostly despised. (He made friends with some beornings, though, curiously enough.)

His life changed totally when he was mysteriously invited to seek the Great Golden Hoard. After escaping from trolls' pot and helping the King of Arthedain, he was - to his own surprise - the first to reach the Hoard.

--------------------------------------------

Thinlómien’s post


When Thin-Gloomy had won the race for the hoard, all the things he had could thought of had been the victory and what to do with the prize. The reality had hit him the next day. How was he to carry the enormous treasure home? And what was 'home' for him? Did he really wish to return to the Iron Hills? Where else could he go?

He had had no idea what to do, so he had started from the smallest of matters. He had begged an audience from King Malvegil of Arthedain. He had told the King he was about to establish a trade caravan carrying coal, and needed a few wagons and able drivers. King Malvegil had agreed after a little while. He had probably wanted to seem generous and, after all, he had owed Thin-Gloomy quite a lot of his knowledge of the Angmarian army.

Thin-Gloomy had made a fatal mistake. Instead of asking the king for guards to protect him he had decided to hire some sellswords from Annúminas after he had got the treasure. He had not expected that the knowledge of the prize and his victory had already been heard by ears whose owners bore little good intention.

The day had been a beautiful one, more beautiful that it had been for weeks. The sun had shone and there had been no clouds. Even Thin-Gloomy couldn't have expected an attack on such a lovely day. I have doubtlessly become softer and lost all my wits, if I ever had any, Thin-Gloomy thought later. He was angry with himself and well, gloomy.

The attackers had hidden in the trees and shot the wagon drivers before their attack was even noticed. Thin-Gloomy had managed to hit one with a bolt from his crossbow, when a shrill female voice had called: "Drop your crossbow right now, or there'll be five arrows through your heart." Thin-Gloomy dropped the bow. It was from old memory. When the bulliers had attacked him, he had always given up to shorten his torment.

"Thomas and Jack, tie the dwarf and see that he's not harmed... yet. Cover his eyes and his mouth too so that he can't scream for help", the same shrill voice had ordered. "Mica, help Samson down and to one of the wagons. We'll take just one wagon. When you've done that, stay here and look after the remaining beasts and wagons. Thomas and Jack will come back to help you to fetch them."

All had been done as the shrill-voiced woman had bidden. She obviously had a firm grip over the four men. A nice little harem she has, Thin-Gloomy thought dryly.

The journey to their destination hadn't been long, but it had been uncomfortable. The only pleasure for Thin-Gloomy had been hearing the wounded man, Samson, wailing with every bump the wagon took before the woman ruined it and told the man to shut up.

In their destination, Thin-Gloomy had been carried at least a few stairs down and locked in a cell.

Brief Outline of the Game:


Everyone starts off at the White Horse Inn in Rohan. Here we meet Thin-Gloomy’s caretaker who then tells us what happened and which direction to travel.

We head North West towards the Gap of Rohan. Here we get ambushed by workers of the kidnapper (who shall be played by myself or anyone who wishes to later on). Here someone will get injured on our side which will detain the group from moving forward. But we also manage to capture one of the bandits to question.

We find a cabin which appears to abandoned but is really owned by (male or female) character. After that, all of us, including the cabin owner, continue on North towards Tharbad - for the cabin owner had informed us that he/she saw a group of people heading in that direction

We fall captive to the group who first ambushed us. We find away out and escape with the bandits hot on our tails.

We arrive in Tharbad and question a few villagers before finding out that the group that kidnapped Thin-Gloomy had indeed passed that way and points us to the other side of the village to a Mansion at the top of the road.

We find Thin-Gloomy and save him after fighting the band (which only consisted of 5 people). The band that was following us enters the mansion. We trick them into the cell and lock them in while one of us runs back down for authorities.

We leave the city the way we came without any more disturbances and arrive back at the White Horse Inn sometime later. He gives us a reward and we all go back to our lives, closer than we were.

The Discussion Thread is now open for questions and to take on characters.

~*~

CORDELIA

Go ahead and put your Elf’s Bio and First Post on this thread.

Please use this guideline for creating your Elf character:

Return of the King – Appendix F: Tolkien’s description for the Quendi (The Speakers) – the name given to the Elves by themselves after they first awoke in Middle-earth.

“They were a race high and beautiful, the older Children of the world, and among them the Eldar were as Kings, who now are gone: the People of the Great Journey, the People of the Stars. They were tall, fair of skin and grey-eyed, though their locks were dark, save in the golden house of Finrod; and their voices had more melodies than any mortal voice that is now heard . . .

~*~

THINLÓMIEN & VALESSE

Please get your first posts done and place them on the Discussion Thread – I’ll move them up, then, so that they are with your Character Bio.

~*~

VALIER

Please let Glirdan know if you are still playing in the game.

If so – you only need to get a Character Bio onto this thread.

~*~

GLIRDAN

Do you want that outline of your game you sent to me put on the Discussion Thread for all players to see?

Hello everyone and welcome to the Life of Gold RPG! For those of you who do not know how this was derived, I shall tell you. After the Great Golden Hoard game that Valier had ran, I wanted to take it a step further and turn it into this RPG. Simple as that.

Gald to see old faces in (Cordelia and Crystal) and I'm happy to see those I have never played with before. I am hoping that this will turn out to be a blast.

Pio

If you wouldn't mind. However, I will say that we may deviate from what is written in there. However, we should be following it almost exactly as written.

Valier

As pio has said above, please let me know if you will be playing ASAP.

Crystal

Love the first post. I'll talk to you more in detail about our characters later on.

Once again, thank you everyone for playing and I can't wait to start. Oh! And if you know of anyone who would be interested in playing, pass the word on. As you see, we still need 3 more characters.

He's a he. If I may suggest, those who play the dwarves should probably make them weird/un-proper dwarves in the community, since Thin-Gloomy hardly has had any friends in his life and those few aren't probably the most normal sort of people.

I'll try to write the first post in a few days. (From what should I start? The jail? the kidnapping? Or is it up to me?)

Great to be in, I'm itching to see what will come out of this!

Hmm, I was thinking maybe do two or three posts of travelling, one of which inculdes details of the kidnapping. How does that sound? After that, do whatever you would like.

Okay, so that's where we are starting from. Jolly traveling then, at first.

Can you present players send out some invites for the remaining characters? People you'd like to play with.

Their only requirement is to have posted in one of the Inns and to read through the Red Book of Westmarch rules.

How about Naria? or the Sixth Wizard? or Forest Elf? Or ???.

Thanks!

Oh and it is an honor to play with you once more Glirdan.


PIO: Here's my bio

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


NAME: Marieme (Mari)

AGE: 72

RACE: Elf

GENDER: Female

WEAPONS (No magical, super-hero, mithril weapons. Just good solid Middle-earth weapons and armor only that is appropriate to the race of the character and the time period.): Typical Elven sword and cross bow.

APPEARANCE: Long blonde hair and light blue eyes. Elven tall.

PERSONALITY/STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: (No half-Elven characters. No mixed-type characters. No super-heroes. No assassins. No one all powerful, martial arts proficient, or having any magical traits. Just regular characters with normal abilities for their races only): Very stubborn. Willing to fight for anything she deems worthy. Strength: loyalty Weakness: Inability to let things go.

HISTORY: Mari is best friends with Arianna. They grew up together, going through nearly everything together. Until Mari's father sent her away from Lorien. He feared that she was getting too use to her nice, quiet life in Lorien. He sent her with several other Elves on a quest that took up the rest of her days until now. Now she has ridden into this Inn looking for a rest before her long journey home.

------------------------------------------------

Cordelia Harrison's post


Marieme had seen a lot of things, but she had never dreamed that she would see a real place to sleep again. Granted, it would hold nothing to her lovely bed back in Lorien. Yet, it was far far better than spending another night sleeping on the ground. She couldn't complain. She had learned to appreciate her home and her family far more now.

She rode the tired horse over the hill and sighed. She had finally found the Inn that she had heared about. She was thankful that she had found it. She had figured that she would never ride over the ridge and find a kind, safe place to sleep. She sighed and led her horse down the ridge.

Hello everyone! I'm Crystal Heart, Co Game Owner with Glirdan.

A little background for those of you that have never played with me before: This is my 6th game here at Barrowdowns. I have owned two and this is my first co owned game.

For me it is an honor to play with all of you. Some of you I have just came out of a very successful game and it is an honor to play with so soon after Darker Days (Cordelia Harrison and Glirdan). For the rest of you, it is an honor to play with you all for the first time. I look forward to a very interesting and intriguing game.


I hope you all are as excited about the start of this new adventure as I am. As always, please contact me with anything that you might need.


Yours, Crystal Heart

P.S. Glirdan it is an extreme honor to be co owning this game with you.

The honor is all mine and I am quite pleased to see that yourself and Cordelia are in this. I was actually kind of hoping one of you would be in it. Looks like I got my wish times two!!

As for inviting other players, I would absolutely love to see Naria or Eomer in this. That way, there is more than just myself, Lommy and Valesse.

This will be an amzing game, I can tell already and I am quite honored to play with you all.

Would someone be willing to PM those other possible players and invite them to the game?

It would be more of a personal touch than having the moderator do it.

Okay, I can send out invites for sure. Crystal, you would like to have Sixth? That is fine by me. Send Sixth the invite on behalf of both of us. I shall send one to both Eomer and Naria to see if they would like to play.

1420!

Sorry it has taken me so long to post here...I am not quite sure I want to make the commitment to an RPG right now. I love the idea and the players so far all seem great, but I am in more of WW rut. I would also like to spend more time in the book and other discussion threads and just don't know if I can put my whole heart into this and wouldn't want to slow things down.... Sorry Glirdy... you honor me just by doing this spin off from my game. I hope everything goes well and I will to read along I promise.

Cheers!! Valier

That is quite alright Valier. I am glad you told me ahead of time. This means that the outline has been slightly changed, but it's something we'll work around once we get there.

Thank you Crystal for helping. If anybody else would like to see someone specific, let us know asap as we now have an open spot.

Once again, thanks Valier. I hope be in one with you soon.

Eomer,
Thank you for participating!

Pio,
He was a Male Human. I remember that much.

Crystal,
I guess we could invite Mith. But she seems to be rather busy. Perhaps someone who hasn't done much RPing?

Pio, Eomer's character Éomeleo was a young Gondorian nobleman. I guess Eomer himself will tell you more in a while...

Glirdy, what about scrolling the Golden Perch for players that haven't played a lot and negotiating with pio about them?

You don't have to negotiate with me - anyone who's posted in any of the Inns or played in an RPG can be asked to join.

I think I've found one. Has Dairym been posting much in the Perch?

EDIT: I have sent an invite to Noinkling instead.

I skimmed through the Perch. What about some of the following: bill_n_sam, Tam Lin, Rose, Lilly, Forest Elf, Volo or Tiffany Aching? All of them seem promising posters with imagination and some writing skills.

I'll go and check. Noinkling sent me a message saying that he can't play (RL issues).

Valesse has just left Hobbiton.
put with character bio post ~*~ Pio

Valesseka glared at the parchement furiously. Convinced, somehow, that it was from a certain nobleman who at their parting she imagined travelling far to the south and east never to be seen again. She wanted desperately to know what the unknown symbols read, so much so that after a day of scowlling at them she gave in and asked for someone to read it to her.

It wasn't from Eomerleo, nor did it mention him specifically, but from the wording she felt there was a real chance of seeing her fellow traveller once again. Wasting no time she collected her things and set out for Rohan. The Arnorian moved quickly southward, somewhat glazing over the world around her, and used the same method she had in racing those months ago.

At the door of the White Horse she paused somewhat expecting to hear that crazed shouting she once heard at the Sea of Rhun. Smirking to herself she shook her head and made her way to the door.
