Well, Amdír has taken Coldan along, and is attempting to strike up a conversation by asking about Dorwinion. I very nearly had him ask Coldan to talk about Dorwinion's wine in comparison with Gondor, but although Amdír knows nothing of Coldan's evening, I decided I didn't want to give poor Collie such an obvious pretext for being angry, and decided instead to give him a chance at a more contemplative conversation.

Hyper-busy over here, but I'll try to keep this going as I can. Considered having Elanor go straight to Brinn but then this would cease to be a roleplay on my end and turn into glorified fan fic.

Formy, you should be the prompter here, not me! As you may have guessed, I ran a bit out of steam with Coldan after yesterDay's excitement; but all it took was your gentle prodding and some cursory geographic research, and lo and behold! he's talking like a book. Thanks!

Okay, Mnemo, Asta has opened conversation with Elanor– and mistaken her for a kiddie, which should go down like a ton of bricks. Over to you.

Oh, and Dimturiel, pray ignore Asta's unkind mental comments about Harry.

Beautiful posts both those last two (I've repped you both too recently, apparently, how irksome)

Nerwen, I always enjoy Asta's internal venom...

Musing upon a Cirdacil post quite soon; Sador can wait for that dull boy's next move

PS Pitchwife, why on earth did I forget to say, amazing names/geog general approach to the land of Wine...makes me want to see (ahem, write in) an RP based entirely in it...

Heh, thanks! My Sea of Rhûn is more or less the Black Sea, the agriculture etc. drawn from my old geo book from school (any mistakes of course mine). As for the names, you'll find them all on a decent map of the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, I've just tweaked the phonology/spelling a little to make them look more Sindarin-ish. (The Translator Conceit™ is of course in full force here.)

Btw I concur about Asta's venom - she's at her best when she's snarky. I'm looking forward to seeing her interact with Elanor and some other people for a change.

And Mnemo, charming Elanor post! But what else did I expect...

Well...

Amdír really got away from me there (or served as a conduit for some my own thoughts, perhaps...), but I managed to wrestle it back to a point where you have options, Pitch. If you want to keep waxing philosophical about Gondor's history or other cultural subjects (for example, I never did get around to Amdír speculating about his own ancestry), I'll gladly go on in that vein... but perhaps it would be more pertinent to go in the direction of the good carpenter's final question.

Anguirel, I've got Vëandur obediently approaching Cirdacil (with a fair amount of apprehension). I thought he was a bit too happy and confident, so I gave him a problem to deal with as well.

I will be away over Easter– will resume conversation with Elanor when I get back, unless Mnemo wants to fill in in the meantime.

Hiya people, just informing you I have been without intrernet access ever since I last posted here and will be so until Tuesday evening. So, until then I will be as quiet as for the last two weeks (eeks?) but I promise to catch up and post Tuesday/Wednesday... I trust you all to carry along with my character.

Oh I get it, she wants us to reply to the riddles thread

Urwen, role-playing is going through a rather pleasant and unusual renaissance at the moment - I don't think you should begrudge the attention

Urwen, I understand your points and your concerns, but, quite frankly, this is not the place to voice them: it's a discussion thread for an RPG. Everyone who is posting here is doing so out of a commitment to this particular game, a commitment of their own volition, and they constitute a minority of the members on this board--even the active ones.

Please consider other factors that may be contributing to the sleepiness in other areas of the discussion forum: for example, the fact that in many schools this is a busy time of year for both students and teachers.

If you'd like to discuss the effect that roleplaying is having on the rest of the forum, might I suggest the "A Measure of Success" thread?

Otherwise, please don't post on this thread unless you have something to say about this particular game, The King's Players, and not the time commitments of the people who are writing it. Take it to a different thread, or take it to PM.

I'm back, and trying to catch up on everything. I've skimmed the game thread, but I have no time to post anything worthwhile. I'll try to get something up tomorrow.

PS: Mnemo, how much about Elanor do you want Thiliel to know / tell Brinn?

And I've been able to keep up on this thread, but failing at the game thread. After tomorrow I'll be able to get back to the regular level of posting.

(Also, belated thank you Galadriel. I had much fun. )

Well, it's a short enough post I've put up, but Holy Week/Easter have eaten away my weekend, and now I'm facing a fairly hefty week, so I thought I should put something up rather than wait for "the perfect moment" to put up "the perfect post."

Pitchwife, I've left it rather open-ended: we can jump ahead to Hallas' estate, or even to their return to Minas Anor in the mid-afternoon, or you can have Coldan inquire into Amdír's memories of the War. In a stroke of what I'd like to think is genius, I decided that the good carpenter was wounded in battle with Easterlings specifically, which you may want to play off--either externally or internally--with Coldan.

Anyway, the ball's in your court again.

Yeah, the mention of Itaril was great! I wondered where PJ got the idea from... Hmm.

It's been happening to other people too, dear.



(Also, I'm planning on catching up with all this on Thursday if all goes according to plan. I really do want to play, but I'm simply rubbish at keeping up with stuff.)

Another neverending post - just had to cut it off at the end, or I would get no sleep at all tonight.

Formy, I figured you'd be occupied over Easter, great you could find the time to post at all. As you see, I've made use of the Easterling connection (great idea!); and seeing that things aren't moving too speedily at the inn right now, I've taken us as far as Hallas' estate. I hope I've done a decent job at capturing Amdír's voice? (Part of the dialogue I gave him is a bit Mother Mary [no pun intended], speaking words of wisdom into Coldan's ear...)

Once we get to discussing Amdír's war memories, I have a question: do you still stick with the idea that Amdír met Merry while convalescing in the HoH? You mentioned it way back in the pre-game discussion, and I don't know how serious you were about it, but I think a) it would be hilarious if he'd known the truth all along, b) it's quite plausible, and c) I have an idea what I'd like to do with it (no embarrassing Amdír and nobody yelling at him for never mentioning it, I promise).

My thought is still that Amdír met Merry briefly in the Houses of Healing--"met" being a somewhat grand way of putting it, perhaps. However, since he knew him as "Master Meriadoc of King Theoden's household" I doubt he would have realised that "Mary the Elf" was supposed to be one and the same character until they met Samwise.

Thus, I agree it's quite plausible, so on the assumption that Amdír not mentioning it has to do with never putting the two together and his general quietness of character, then I'm fine with it.

I can probably have a post up for my fine carpenter tomorrow morning (my time), but in the event I don't, it will take a couple days, as Rune is visiting and school will eat me. In the event I don't post in the next 16 hours or so, feel free to go ahead without me.

Save filled. I should be set to play regularly (including daily postings) for the next two weeks. Thanks for bearing with me in the meantime.

Okay, I should be able to post a couple times over the next two days, so... is everyone prepared to move into the evening? Or are we there already?

TP, please tell me you forgot to put a smiley there and that you aren't really serious. We're just waking up.

Erm... Which day are you waking up on? Have we changed days?

I'm kind of lost because I actually asked this question already a couple days ago or so but my post and others got deleted so I never got my answer.
