Thank you for being so patient waiting for me to put up my post; I wasn't able to get on the computer until late tonight. So sorry.

Anyway, here it is:

Character Description Form:

Have you ever played in an RPG at the Barrow Downs? YES - Which one? Dark Seduction (cameo) Flight from Rohan

How many RPG’s on the Barrow Downs are you currently involved in?
Two and a half, Breelanders All! and Resettling the Lost Kingdom are just starting and The Fall of Greenwood the Great is about to end [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] (Pio said it was fine for me to join this one)

Have you posted in The Green Dragon Inn or in The White Horse in Rohan? YES Which one?
both

For your character please include:

NAME: Arilewen (that you knew already)

AGE: 3928

RACE: Elf

GENDER: Female

WEAPONS: None

APPEARANCE: Black hair slightly past her waist, creamy white skin, eyes are grey or blue-grey depending on mood (stormy grey when angry, silvery grey when happy, blue-grey when sad or worried) She always wears her hair half in a braided crown threaded with flowers, the rest loose. She is either dressed in midnight blue, emerald green, or black. Her clothing is relatively plain, cut simply without a lot of adornment. Her only jewelry a single silver broach set with a white stone and is never seen without it.

PERSONALITY/STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: She is quiet and self-effacing, preferring a place on the edge of the group to one in front of all eyes. If a large function is planned, chances are that she will be in the background, quietly and efficiently replenishing tables of food, delivering water to the singers, and just generally being helpful. But you will never see her on the dance floor, and never will she consent to sing in front of others. (she loves to do both, just not where anyone can see her.) She has a tendency to daydream and to get lost in her imaginings.

HISTORY: Arilewen was born in Doriath, but she didn't live there long enough to really remember it, mostly vague memories of music and dancing. She's lived in Lothlorien for the rest of her years spent in Middle-Earth. Her parents left for Valinor some years ago, not too long after Celebrian, daughter of Galadriel. She misses them and that is her main reason for wanting to go along.

The rumors of a romance between one of the border scouts and herself have nothing whatever to do with it. Honest. (hint, hint, Elfwine...)
_____________________________________________

Tinuviel's post

“Arilewen, the place is then yours. I know you are older then the others left. Do you want it?”

Do I want it? Arilewen was slightly stunned that she out of all was chosen, but more than anything, she wanted to see Valinor. Weeping half out of joy that she could go, and half out of sorrow to leave the only home she had ever really known, she accepted the frail slip of paper from Tanroth. It seemed such a little thing to carry all her dreams on...

She barely noticed when the meeting ended. And as the other elves made their way out of the no longer crowded meeting, she collapsed against a tree and looked at the note in her hand. In firm script it told her to meet the others going on the journey on the outskirts of Lothlorien after sunrise. It didn't leave her much time to pack, but she sat staring at the note in her hand for a long time before she rose to go to her flet and pack.

Valinor! The Blessed Realm of the Lords of the West had beckoned to her in her dreams, ever since she was young. To speak with the Valar face to mighty face would be enough to fill all the ages of eternity with a wonder vast as the stars of Elbereth. Elbereth! Why, if Arilewen could get up the courage to once speak with Varda Elentari would be the height of rapture.

____________________________________________

Ack, this is more like an Inn post than an RPG post, but I suppose it will have to do.

Both your PMs are full, Orofaniel and Novnarwen. I have done editing my profile/first post.

By the way, I, more so than not, will be gone for the next 36 hours. See you all after then!

I'm a bit confused: are the all the parts filled, or is there a female part left?

I did read the discussion thread, but was slightly confused about the final number of female elves. It's been too long since I've played an elf...

Thanks!
Durelin- All the parts are filled indeed. The number of female elves were 2 + mine female elf. So, I'm afraid that we don't have any more spaces left. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] But if we should need a secondary character in the middle of the RPG we will contact you. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Does that sound alright to you?


Pio
Yes, I have noticed Elennar's changes in her post. It looks fine [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
I've also noticed Nilpaurion Felagund's editing.

Good job people! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Tinuviel of Denton - Great! Your character is accepted! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

~*~

We have all the characters that we need, so me and Nova will PM you Pio, to give the exact order of the posts. We'll try to do it as quickly as possible to get this on rolling. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I'm really looking forwards to this, and I'm really excited, I hope I'm not the only one.... [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Durelin- I appologise.. Check your PMs.. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Elfwine- You may also check your PM, just to get the confusion out of the air.. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Everyone's post and profile are looking great! So, basically this means we can start. However, on a account of some personal business I have to deal with, I'll have to go away on Friday until Sunday. Can we start after the Weekend maybe?

I hope that's alright. Anyway, thanks for your patience.

I have a problem!
I just found out that me and my whole family are going to Santiago California for 9 days at the end of October! Now this is very bad and you are all going to hate me but I will not have internet access there. If you want you can find someone other than me to play, kill me off... of SAVE me some spaces. (Or you could make me deathly ill for a few days and unable to talk...) But what ever you decide I want you to know I am very sorry for any inconvenience I have caused!!!

Again Sorry...

Jack - Not as bad as when I owned an RPG... The PC monitor blew up and I couldn't use my home PC, and I couln't access one at school because I was at work experience. I missed about 2-3 weeks of my own RPG! But Child (Shire mod if you're not lucky enough to have met her ^_- ) played my character for me ^_^ [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

No more chatty posts, please! Let's all wait until the Game opens and you can discuss it here.

In the meantime - please read this:
_____________________________________________

Fellow Shire Gamers:

Please read before posting further on the Discussion Thread

Our gaming comes with a cost; it is time to reflect on this fact and make some changes to how we run our games.

We RPG’ers use the most Barrow Downs resources. We use a game thread, a discussion thread, PMs to plan games, and are constant visitors to the site, often returning more than two or three times a day to keep up with developments in the game in order to prepare our own posts.

Why is this a drain on BD resources? Please take some time to read carefully and reflect seriously upon the Barrow Wight's recent posts in the "Announcements &gt;&gt; The Barrow Downs" forum concerning storage space and bandwidth, chat and discussion, and the costs of running the site, and then change your posting habits. Click on: BANDWIDTH AND EXPENSES

What this means is that our Games, because we need to be so active in them, and because the Shire has so many going at once, cost the site much more money than other topics and forums on the Barrow Downs. In order for us to continue to have a good number of quality games for Shirelings to play in we need to make some changes:

What you, as participants in this game can do, personally:

What are the most beneficial changes in our posting habits? For one, we need to stop using the discussion threads for off-game-topic chatting, for personal comment. We need to restrict our posts to discussion of the games only, that is, to issues of plotting, character interaction, clarification, and notification of absences.

For most occasions, we don't need to make multiple posts about why we are absent or how we are doing and we don't need to make a string of 'see ya' posts in reply.

For personal comments, we can use the chat room or PM’s. (It’s ok to say a short ‘Nice post!’ or ‘Great post!’ if it is included with a post that has some other on-topic game information/requests on it.)

Please take the time to do several things:

Keep on topic for the Game.

Delete posts or run of the mill comments in the discussion thread that have no bearing on the game.

Refrain from such posts and comments in future discussions of the games.

Limit your daily visits to the thread.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. ALL GAMERS WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR UNDERSTANDING THE FOLLOWING.

What we, as Shire Moderators, will be doing to insure these changes are being made:

We will be following the discussion threads more closely now. When we see an off topic post – we will give the poster a warning by PM and place a post on the Discussion Thread with the poster’s name on it and a request to remove that post.

Once the warning is given, all future off-topic posts by that poster will be deleted, and that poster runs the risk of being asked to leave the game by the Moderator if such behavior continues.

The Moderator also has the option to close the Game and Discussion thread if gamers cannot stay on topic in the Discussion Thread. It will then be up to the Owner and the players to sort out problems, by PM or email, and make an agreement to keep on topic. Owners may then contact the Moderator to reopen the Game.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

If we all help out, we can ensure that our games remain treasures in the Barrow Downs.

Thanks for being responsible gamers and conscientious members of the Downs!

Thanks Pio for the reminder.

We'll use this thread only for planning. If we have all these chatty messages during planning, we'll likely oversee the important stuff. (I hope that made sense.) Anyway, I hope you understand what I mean.

Okay, over to some planning.

A couple of weeks ago, when planning this RPG, I asked Pio for a road. Lets all see what she found, shall we?

Quote:
1.) Lorien over the Redhorn Pass (in the Misty Mountains – the Elves would call it them the Hithaeglir; they are right on the western border of Lorien) and turning a little south to where the Sirranon River comes out from beneath the mountains:

75 miles – this would be a difficult passage – snowy, stormy and all – possibly a few orcs. Good for a little battle and some Elven fortitude and skill with sword and bow This scene are we definitely going to have. I'll come back to this later. In the mean time you should prepare, practise your battle skills.. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

2.) Along the Sirannon River and a little south to Tharbad a little town where the Old North-South Road crosses the Greyflood River (the Gwathló River in Elven)

225 miles – Along the river just before it reaches the Greyflood is an abandoned Elven city – Ost-in-Edhel, the capitol of a great Elven Nation of the 2nd Age. It was destroyed by Sauron long, long ago, But it was where Celebrimbor and the Mirdain (the Elven Jewel smiths) forged the Great Rings of Power. If anyone has more information about Ost-in-Edhel, I suggest either that you post your info on this thread or PM it to me, so I can make a summary. In that way we'll all have some clues regarding the city's history etc. It's so much easier to describe stuff you know something about. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

3.) From Tharbad you can travel northwest along a road to Michel Delving, in the Shire. You will be in the Western part of the Shire, called the Westfarthing; Michel Delving is its main town. The same counts for Michel Delving; the information should be placed here or by PMing it to me.

140 miles

4.) At Michel Delving you can pick up The Great East Road and head west on it going all the way to The Tower Hill (Emyn Beraid in Elven); Here there were built great Elven Towers that looked to the sea. One of them held a palantir, The Stone of Elostirion, which Gandalf and the other Ring-bearers took back to the blessed lands, Aman, on the Ring-bearers White Ship.

FYI: Valinor is the central portion of the continent of Aman.

75 miles.


4.) From the Tower Hills to the Grey Havens and the Ships to Aman

50 miles

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

So your total, give or take a few miles is roughly 600 miles of travel

Walking clocks in at about 2.5mph (I’m thinking the untiring Elves could cover a good 25 miles per day)

I don’t think you could take horses over the Redhorn Pass. We will pick up horses in Tharbad!

At a gallop, quality horses can get about 7mph (Dunadain horses) – they can’t gallop for a long period of time.

I would give the Elves 1 1/2 to 2 months travel time.
Nice, huh? If it's a bit confusing, take a look at this Map (Yes, Pio gave me this too.. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img])

Lets all thank Pio for this wonderful road, and the map of course! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Everyone- We'll take this step by step. But we won't take day by day, if you know what I mean. Anyway, I hope you've read the road description a couple of times, so that you know where you are going. It doesn't matter if you don't know it by heart. Don't worry, Tanroth will lead you.. I think.. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! (Pm or on the thread)

And, would you guys mind if I take the first post tomorrow? I would like to write a post, where the elves are gathered before the leave Lothlórien.

Thanks!

The overexcited lunatic,

Everyone-

Okay, here are some suggestions over what you can write in your posts.

- Look at your character's porfile and personality and compare them with the other character's personalities. Which character would your character likely find same interests etc. with? Who would he/she likely talk to?

- Try to explain your character's feeling towards the journey. Do he/she thinks it might be dangerous to travel when Sauron's forces are gathering?

- Does your character have any doubts?

- Does your character feel up for the journey and the road they are facing?

- Has your character any objections towards the road. If so, whom will he/she tell this to? Tanroth, or anyone else?

(Remember, these are only suggestions...)
Not much, but, that's basically all I can do. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Lets get this rolling, shall we?

Note on SAVES

Try to get them filled in within 24 hours of putting them up on the Game.

Everyone is free to post after someone has put up a SAVE on the Game - the person who puts the SAVE on the Game must make their post fit in with what comes both before and after it.

~*~ Thanks!

Pio, the Mod

Everyone- Great posts!!

Okay, we need to do some planning.

However, I'll be away most of this weekend. And therefore I am not setting up a schedule before on Monday, for how we are going to continue.

I've also put up a save, which will be filled in as soon as possible. I hope to manage this by Sunday, but I am not sure.

In the mean while, please be patient.

Thanks,

Okay!

I have filled my save.

Also, we will soon start the mountain climbing. I want, however, the camp scene to end first. Anyone who wants to do that?

Okay, everyone can go ahead, posting about the camp!

It would be fun if we had story telling or even a song! (Just a thought of course..)

All players:

The Barrow Downs was hard to access day before yesterday – but the problem has now been fixed. So let’s get the game back on track.

Novnarwen has brought the group to their first camp, which should be on the edge of the forest of Lorien, up against the mountains. Go ahead now and place your making-camp posts directly on the Game.

Wait then for Novnarwen and/or Orofaniel to move the group onwards to the path that climbs up to the pass over the mountains from east to west.

Then, the next game day will find your group heading up into the mountains toward the Red Horn Pass, Caradhras will be to the south of you. You are walking along the course of the Silverlode River, and will come to the Mirrormere, where the entrance to Khazad-dûm is, the way that the Fellowship passed through from the east moving westward.

Just beyond the Mirrormere is a steep winding path, sometimes crumbling away, that goes up to the Redhorn Gate (Pass). It is called the Dimrill Stair, as it passes up from the Mirrormere in “an endless stair of short (water) falls” (FotR).

Gandalf mentions that it would take the Fellowship more than two marches to reach the top of the Pass. The way will be snowy, the pass is quite high, and there may be creatures lurking about . . .

I've filled my 'save' now at the camp.

Nilpaurion Felagund - Nice song.. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Okay everybody, if you want to have a 'camp-post' you'll have to get to it soon, because I think we need to move the group up in the mountains as soon as possible. We can't use to long time on our first camp.....

So, just finish up the camp posts and wait (as Pio said in the previous post), until me or Nova has led the group up the path in the mountains.

Nova -Check your PMs and look at my proposals! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

BTW: Many of the gamers in this game are new. Please don't hesitate to write a post or two. It doesn't matter if they are short or not, it's better than nothing. Besides, I think that all the characters are great and we do want to see them as much as possible in the game, don't we? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

I just recieved a PM from Jack, who had recieved a PM from Enif, that she has troubles getting on the forum. (Wow... That was quite confusing.)

Anyway, we'll take her character 'along' in the meantime.

Nice posts everyone.

When Elentari and Tinuviel have finished their posts, we're getting away from that camp. That's for sure!

Everyone

Nova will post a final camp scene and heading up the mountain tomorrow.

Ah.. I just PM elfi telling him to PM the post to me. I could've used my save and put it in there.

Anyway, Elfi, you are more than welcome to post on the RPG thread then. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

*nova* [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

EDIT- I am soooooo useless. I just checked the RPG thread. Your post Elfi is great! Okay... just forget the message above.. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Hehe (From now on, I'll check the RPG thread first [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Everyone- I've written a post where the group leaves their first camp. Now, everyone are welcome to write posts.

The Mountain climbing will also start soon. Hold on, until me or Orofaniel have set a post up about that.

Okay, thanks.

Remember, the group is surrounded by FOG. This will be important to know for our next move.

Perhaps, as it is so foggy, someone might get lost? Not permanently lost, soon found again. I will write a post in which Dunaire is separated from the group, if you like the idea.
