Several people have been interested in starting roleplays that relate to Tolkien at Tol Eressea. Thats great. However, if you can place a short description of the setting of the "stage" for the roleplay and what characters you think will be good in it, it would be helpful. Also allow for others to ask you questions about your idea.

I have an idea to have a ball for all middle earthlings. I would like to hold it. If anyone would be interested in something like that I would like to know. If you have any questions I will be happy to answer them. More about my idea. The setting would be a big ball room with a briliant chandeleir in the middle of the ceiling. Dinner would also be served. It could be a chance for all middle earthlings to meet and talk. I hope you will like this idea and again if anyone wants more info I'll be happy to give it. smile.gif

Thought of an idea, if anyone's particularly interested. It can involve as many people as we want it to, but basically it's a backstory involving Eldirn and Elrond. It's the story of how she got captured by orcs and tortured, and Elrond had to lead a war party from Rivendell to rescue her. I already have the basic plotline, and it's in my character's history if you're curious, but the details would be pretty much up to the players.

Any opinions?

Further thought on same.

Let's broaden it out. Start it with Celebrian's capture (if she can get her comp working), and tie it all together with an intrigue of Sauron's. He is trying to obtain intelligence regarding the whereabouts of the Three, and so he is having Elves in the vicinity of Eregion kidnapped and tortured in order to attempt to extract information...

Perhaps he even suspects the existence of Imladris, and is trying to pinpoint its location.

So first Celeb is captured, and the Twins rescue her. Elrond tries to heal her, and is only partially successful. So Celeb leaves (or maybe is preparing to leave) and very shortly thereafter Eldirn gets captured. Only she's closer in, and so Elrond and Co. rescue her before the yrch get going good.

But that then leaves a concern, that the forces of Mordor are slowly zeroing in on Imladris. So Elrond and his advisors have to take action. But they have to decide WHAT action.

Etc. etc. etc.

Sounds good to me biggrin.gif And perhaps Andaer as one of the soldiers under Elrond can assist in the rescue. I would love to be a part of it!

There is no reason why either of these roleplays should not take place but there is one concern on the great ball that Herwen mentions. There is a shortage of male Elves or men for a ball to take place. In Tolkien's stories there was no shortage of males, in fact it seemed there were very few females in comparison. Maybe some recruitment of new members would be helpful before this roleplay is started. As one of very few males here I personally am not interested in getting involved in a dance when I can go kill enemy yrch. I think this will also be the interests of other males. A suggestion to help alieviate this problem is to have the ladies create their own partners or play males themselves. Since I am now registered as three separate characters I know you can also register as another.

In the earlier third age roleplay suggested by Eldirn, I would like to be involved but I need to end some of the other roleplays I'm in first. Being three characters, two of them very active, is tough and takes a lot of my time. When I join a roleplay I want to take an active part in it and not hold anyone up because I am unable to keep up. I hope others feel the same way.

I don't have a problem with that, Glor. I know you stay really busy with all of this. If it turns out to be too much, that's okay too.

Perhaps it is getting time for the food-fight party to start winding down, although I hate to; it has been WAAAAY too much fun. biggrin.gif rolleyes.gif

Great idea Eldirn although... -looks at her fan fiction of Celebrían's torment, which she just started and is already up to 4 pages- errrrr I am affarid that it will be long posts, no happy events and I am affarid I will bore people, as I seem to have that ability wink.gif .

lol well if you DO start a ball... I WON'T be part of that hehe, I need to keep my mind on track and sometimes don't have enough energy to post, and then there is this idiotic time difference (I wouldn't mind if my days would be dark tongue.gif ), but well I love Eldirns idea, eventhough I have to finish my fan-fic too (will help me to keep up my posting).

For further information, IF I do not post for a while, and everyone gets tired of it, just throw me off, and take over my character, honestly I would understand that!!! I might not like it, but I WILL understand it rolleyes.gif

I'm glad you have a job Anu. If you think you cannot post I can erase your character but it would be a good thing if you posted once a day. Right now we await your return in Amulet Inn with a message as to what you found out in your scouting of the direction everyone needs to go to start out searching for Glorfindel.

Read the last two pages of posts and you will see we have many more guards now and also see that you have been sent to scout.

I appreciate that and will try my best to keep up. biggrin.gif I hope that soon they finish and open the new library that is going in right across the street from my job. That way I can go there and log in even if my brother is off work and so I cannot log on at home. Until then, the County Library that is 8 or 9 miles away will be where I will try to go to as often as I can so I can keep up. biggrin.gif Please don't remove my character or me from the RPG just yet.

I was just thinking, we could do a role play with some of the characters of Tolkien but when they were kids! You know I always wondered what Elrond was like when he was a midgit... and I wondered about gandalf too... okay maybe it won't be totally based on Tolkien (gandalf is a bit younger than Elrond if I recall) but we could have fun with it. What do you think?
