Well, folks, it has been nearly two weeks since the last post on the game thread and Cuthalion has not been around here for several weeks. I know he has had a great loss in his life recently, but I worry that he does not seem to be around here. He has not answered my PM, even after the fateful Danish holiday.

Maika, are you managing the game now? Is there a problem in the game which is causing the delays or RL interruptions? Are people not sure when they should be posting?

I would like to help get the game going again. This one is too good to retire to Elvenhome unfinished.

Would one of the game owners please post here or on the game thread within two days to get this game running?

Fear not! I'm here!

Maikadilwen 11-20-2003 11:58 PM

Something to adjust to, I must say! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
And where did you get that idea, my dear C.?

Hmmm, Archer? Seems we have a "problem"... [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Aylwen Dreamsong 11-21-2003 05:43 AM

Hey Everyone!

This is so last minute, but my family has decided to make use of the week off of school and take a trip to MN to visit ailing relatives. I will be back by Wednesday, but I won't have much internet access.

Sorry it's such short notice!

I'll get a post for Jaheira and Dorlas up when I get back from the snowy north.


Amanaduial the archer 11-21-2003 01:07 PM

Yah. Definitely something to...adjust to.

Excellent post, Cuthalion.

Bęthberry 11-23-2003 01:11 PM

Wow! See what a little nudge does. Great posts, everyone.

Cuthalion 11-24-2003 08:41 PM

A few suggestions for upcoming posts:

Aylwen: Need something from Jaheira..possibly explaining her attitude toward the Elf, DEFINITELY something from Dorlas (who will be joining Arthain in Gil-galad's army).

Durelin: Great posts! Go with your gut!

Daniel: Khalad...I like this guy! We really need to know more as he tries to establish a friendship with Melost. And also...Elendil really needs to show the Elven King that all Men aren't untrustworthy.

Archer: Kudos, woman! Maika found me a star when she suggested you. Arthain needs to stay away from Anwen...I've heard rumours she may try something. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] From this time forward Arthain will be under constant observation until the final battle. Watch your back.

Maika: Anwen is a challenge...but as you know, there is more to come. Vlad...hopefully he will soften around the edges as Melost begins to confide in him and Khalad.

Vanima: As I wrote to you recently, Menelya is about to go through some major changes...I'm looking for a great series of fiery posts between you and Maika!

Thanks're awesome! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

First of all, thankyou and [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]. Second of all - pcha! And here's me thinking Ms. Anwenelme was feeling kindly towards the father of her child...


VanimaEdhel 11-25-2003 05:20 PM

I was going to run my post over with you, C, but your mailbox was full. Is it okay? I didn't know if you wanted anyone else (the twittering "friend" of Menelya) to hear of Anwenelme's problems. I also did not know if you wanted Menelya to hear about it so just tell me if you want anything changed!

Cuthalion 11-25-2003 08:31 PM

Archer: Oh, she's feeling kindly alright...kindly enough to try to protect her own pride and status.

Vanima: See your PM box.

Maika: Wait for Vanima's revisions before posting for Anwen, could still use a Vlad post though.

Maikadilwen 11-26-2003 12:50 AM

Could still use a someone-else-post so I have some more to put into it...

EDIT: Ok, now I have to know... Am I the only one here having trouble with this particular game- and discussion thread?
I have an ADSL-connection and everything on this forum pops up immediately...except for these two threads. They take forever to load and it's pretty frustrating. Can't help but fear that I soon won't be able to view them anymore.
Anyone else? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img] [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

Well, I don't have the speediest Internet, so I don't notice it.

And is that better, C?

Cuthalion 11-26-2003 07:16 PM

Yes, Vanima...better, but don't lose sight of Menelya's "past" I really want a post about that.

Aylwen...very nice Dorlas post! Brava! enemy of Melost? I wouldn't have thought he would see it that way. Rest asssured, Arthain will not die by Melost's hand..indeed, quite the contrary...

[ 8:30 PM November 26, 2003: Message edited by: Cuthalion ]

Amanaduial the archer 11-27-2003 12:29 PM

Aware of it, Cuthalion - but none the less, the will die close, I believe, from what you told me in the outline...just one of those things... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Arthain doesn't see Melost as his enemy, but he thinks Melost would see him as an enemy. And fair enough - wasn't Melost throwing around death threats before?!

EDIT: Lol, loved the post especially Aylwen [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

[ 4:32 PM November 27, 2003: Message edited by: Amanaduial the archer ]

Cuthalion 11-30-2003 08:16 PM

Posting, anyone??

VanimaEdhel 12-02-2003 04:46 PM

Erm...Maika? I was kind of leaving it up to you to tell Menelya, since it's such an important thing for your character to do.

Daniel Telcontar 12-03-2003 10:15 AM

I'll try and mix something together for Khalad; though I am unsure, C., how Elendil can prove to Gil-galad that some Men are worthy of trust?

Cuthalion 12-03-2003 01:30 PM

By his actions, methinks...

Daniel Telcontar 12-04-2003 09:57 AM

Ah, well, I thought you wanted that in my next post I wrote about Elendil proving that he can be trusted, something specific. I guess we will have to let events unfurl themselves and show what happens.

Amanaduial the archer 12-04-2003 03:53 PM

Cuthalion, may I just ask what will be happening for the men and elves?

Cuthalion 12-05-2003 01:12 AM

Aside from dying in the Battle? Nothing much...why? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

Amanaduial the archer 12-05-2003 12:01 PM

Lol, well yes...but now?

Durelin 12-05-2003 04:04 PM

I posted. (And I hope it's alright) Finally, I know, after two weeks! More! And I am truly smacking myself for not making more effort to make time for this RPG, but school has started taking up alot. They lulled me into a sense of securiy, and then hit me hard. So...I'm recovering.


Oh yeah, and...

*smacks self*

Aylwen - I had Snyd have a conversation with Jaheira (mostly so he finds out about what Vlad's doing. Jaheira does know that, right?) I always am afraid I've done something wrong, and so I just wanted to make sure I had Jaheira's character right. Let me know if not, and I'll change anything. Or everything!


And sorry!


Amanaduial the archer 12-05-2003 04:05 PM

Oh, I can't wait for you to get the Lothlorien...heh heh...

Aylwen Dreamsong 12-05-2003 07:35 PM

Don't be silly, Durelin! Your post is fine; wonderful, in fact. I will definitely have a post up tonight or early tomorrow morning, but if any of the outlaws wish to post I've got no problem with that either, I'll just incorperate it into whatever I've got.

Hah, I can't wait either, Aman. It will be so much fun... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]


[edit] My post is up now, let me know if any changes need to be made!

VanimaEdhel 12-08-2003 05:39 PM

C: do you know if we can expect Maika to post within, oh, say three days for Anwenelme? Or should I go on with the conversation without her?

Cuthalion 12-09-2003 09:10 AM

I'm...hoping she'll be posting soon. She's been working a lot of extrat hours, plus getting ready for her flight to see me over New Years. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

As to the future in general, I don't want to reveal too much. You guys have been doing incredible work on the few hints I've been giving you. Suffice it to say, the armies are on the verge of moving out and Arthain will be tracked by his vengeful friend. He will probably manage to have a last tete-a-tete with Anwen.

Thelian will be getting really strange pretty soon as his consciebce gnaws at him furtheu for not following his kinsman. It is now essential that Gil-galad and Elendil cement their alliance before battle.

Aylwen Dreamsong 12-15-2003 08:44 PM


Everyone -

My grandfather has passed away and from Thursday to Monday morning I will be in MN attending the funeral and being with family.

Best Holiday Wishes,

Cuthalion 12-26-2003 11:28 PM


So sorry to hear of your grand-father's passing...I can empathise.

I will be picking up Maika tomorrow in Atlanta. Hopefully I can persuade her to post while she's here. Take care all!

Durelin 12-29-2003 03:42 PM

I'm so sorry Aylwen! I can't say I know what it's like, but... [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] ...could I give you a hug? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Man, it comes in bloody waves!! Its been three weeks, maybe more...and I haven't posted!!!! Luckily, it seems no one elses life is terribly...slow... Before Christmas it was school, during Christmas: forget it! (and my Christmas dragged on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday a bit, too. So here I am on Monday, taking a deep breath. A week from now I will be back in school, with exams starting on Thursday and Friday. Actually, those days might now be so bad, as I hope I won't have that much studying to do, considering I only have two challenging classes...

Anyways, now that you've heard my life story, with all my woes... Sorry! But, I must explain myself, as I have never given you warning before my disappearances. But I really do think I may have my sorry butt in gear for the next starting up again of school.

Thanks! Hope everyone had a happy holiday and has a happy new year! Enjoy life, all ye school children!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Aylwen Dreamsong 01-04-2004 05:27 PM

Thanks for your comforting words, guys. It's very helpful and appreciated greatly.

Just waiting on Maika, and then the bandits can get the show on the road! Also, Cuth, do you want Dorlas, Thelian, Arthain, and the armies to just hang tight for a while?

We're losing the game thread to the depths of the Rohan forum! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]


Bęthberry 01-06-2004 04:12 PM


I have a message to send you regarding a Personal Title but your mailbox is full. Please clear it so I can send the message to you. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]


Aylwen Dreamsong 01-06-2004 04:21 PM

Early congratulations, Cuth! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] A personal title well deserved.


Cuthalion 01-13-2004 09:38 PM

PM box emptied...believe it or not, I'm still around! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Amanaduial the archer 01-16-2004 04:28 PM

Hooray! And congratulations on your PT, Cuthalion - well deserved, and lovely indeed. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Onto the game...
- May I ask what Arthain and Dorlas will be doing at the moment? I know it may seem stupid, but we seem to be in suspended animation.
- Would it be alright for me to take on the part of Fidrohir on the side of the bandits?


Maikadilwen 01-16-2004 08:32 PM

Sure, please do, Aman. But forgive us for being....less than nice to him from time to time. *snickers*

And yes everyone, I AM working on a post, I just have a lot of work at the moment, so bear with me.

Cuthalion 01-17-2004 10:02 AM

I'm relieved to see all interest has not been lost. Thanks to Archer for taking up the tale once again.

VanimaEdhel 01-18-2004 05:40 PM

Good. So people are back? I kept checking in to see if I could start another post yet (still can't, but it means I probably will be able to soon after I see Anwenelme/Maika's next post).

Durelin 01-20-2004 06:38 PM

I have posted, but, forgive me, as I was not exactly sure of the plan of the invasion of the farmhouse, so...I kind of improvised. So, please correct all of my mistakes.

I had Vlad, Khalad, Fid, and I guess Melost go in through the back door (or something like that), and Snyd and Jaheira would hold the front, in case anything went wrong, slipped past them, or just to employ a kind of pincer movement (or something like that, again). Really, my incapabilities are pathetic...

Thank you, and sorry!

-Durelin [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] (feeling quite cheery!)

(sorry also for not posting, but I wasn't feeling bold enough to continue the raid or anything, as I did not know where it was going. Of course, I still don't, but that's entirely my fault.)

Maikadilwen 01-20-2004 11:21 PM

K, people, your whiplashing Balrog is back and I'll go right on with ordering people around! [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Anwa post is up. Vanima, your go. Durelin, please clear out your PM box asap!
