afterwards we took a look at Thunderbluff too... not to do any
considerable damage, but it was the fire festival and we thought we'd
join the festivities in a horde capital for once, did the ribbon dance
ArPharazonV: world pvp can be fun *grin*
AriehnV: hihi *nod*
AriehnV: it might of interest to the valar guild that the rules of the Knights of Honor are based on the Valar Code of conduct
VardaValar1: Nice to know we had an influence. : )
VardaValar1: Does Helm use AIM too?
VardaValar1: I show him as Helmvalar
AriehnV: yep he said he would download it and chose that screennae
AriehnV: screenname , still cant type
VardaValar1: That was a long time ago.
VardaValar1: ok, thank you.
VardaValar1: Fladrif, would you like to tell about the game you were testing?
fladrifv: I was testing a relatively new game
fladrifv: calles grid
fladrifv: eh called....
fladrifv: have been on vacation so my appoligises for my english
VardaValar1: No worries. Just give it your best shot.
fladrifv: this is a race game which tries to blend realism and acarde game play
the only thing I can say up to now...its almost impossible to steer,
since like all games you lack the feeling of the car this makes it
almost impossible to play this game as soon as you drive normal cars :-)
fladrifv: but I will practise more , so far my report
VardaValar1: The name is Grid?
fladrifv: capital letters
VardaValar1: On Age of Conan
, we heard from a friend guild-leader.
VardaValar1: Most of his kinship jumped to that game and tried it out.
graphics and play system seem quite good, but there it stops. It has been a
disappointment. Most of the group plans to switch to Warhammer Online
to try it, or back to LotRO.
VardaValar1: That's all the reports that I know of. Any other games?
VardaValar1: Consider which characters we have in the chat room right now. : )
VardaValar1: How would we interact?
VardaValar1: Arien, as the sun. Phar, as the Numenorean king.
VardaValar1: Arwen as the daughter of Elrond or Queen of Gondor and Arnor.
oh, sorry, other games, just the same as last week I guess... Guildwars
(now entered the Crystal Desert), Starcraft: Broodwar, both campaign
and multiplayer with Fladrif.
VardaValar1: Fladrif, the ancient ent.
VardaValar1: Thanks, Phar. : )
ArPharazonV: sorry, been rather caught up in my writing ;-)
VardaValar1: That's a good thing to be doing.
VardaValar1: Menel, Eonwe, and I have been talking a bit too. We hope to have some fun stuff coming up.
VardaValar1: You did note the Staff of Unlight? :-)
ArPharazonV: I did, yes
VardaValar1: That is from the idea of Ungoliant's unlight.
VardaValar1: That, added to the darkness coming from Dol Guldur, gets nasty and explains a lot of what is going on.
ArPharazonV: it would appear so
VardaValar1: So we have to stop it.
VardaValar1: Already messing with Calaron's mind.
VardaValar1: Ok, shall we turn everyone loose?
ArPharazonV: in honesty, I've already established a sorcerer and a lesser Ring ;-)
VardaValar1: I may go rejoin the LotRO gang, who have been very active.
ArPharazonV: but don't let me prevent the topic!
ArPharazonV: how would we interact?
VardaValar1: Ok, so figure that the sorcerer had to be the one that activated the Staff of Unlight probably using his lesser Ring.
VardaValar1: I was going to let you guys tell how you interact if you liked.
VardaValar1: In the rp, do try to work all the ideas together.
VardaValar1: Trying to make a coherent story.
AriehnV: hmm Ariehn sends her light to guide people through the day to heal the damage that the darkness of sauron has done
ArPharazonV: it would make sense, since Calaron's about to retreat to Angmar after whatever happens at the ambush
ArPharazonV: I interact mainly by blaming the Valar for our mortality and thinking nothing much of the Ents :-)
VardaValar1: The base is supposed to be Angmar, so that works. And that is where the staff is, that Thranduil told us of.
VardaValar1: Ents, you suppose they make good ship-building wood?
ArPharazonV: perhaps, though I would not trust a ship made out of what once could talk and think for itself
VardaValar1: Varda listens to everyone and passes on the intel to the rest of the Ainur. : )
VardaValar1: A ship of bone.
fladrifv: *glares angryly*
VardaValar1: hah, woke up the ent. : )
ArPharazonV: for all I know the mast could throw itself overboard and leave my ship stuck in the sea ;-)
AriehnV: hehe even the sun wouldnt dare lay and axe on an emt ;-)
VardaValar1: That could have been one of your problems. Have to hew the right tree.
fladrifv: since the concerns of the ent do not reach further then himself and the forrest
ArPharazonV: well, the concerns of Numenorean shipbuilders lie largely in those same forests, so...
VardaValar1: An ent mast, that was friendly, might be worked out if he thought he could hunt for entwives that way.
fladrifv: allthough salty water would do no good to the root system
VardaValar1: I'm going to turn you folks loose now and look at the rp on the forum.
fladrifv: where the seas in middle earth salty?
VardaValar1: hmm, so we need to keep the bilge fresh.
VardaValar1: Probably less salty than over time.
VardaValar1: Much more has gone into the water than had in the early days.
ArPharazonV: still working on the post, Varda :-)
ArPharazonV: it's a long one I think!
VardaValar1: Cool - I look forward to it.
VardaValar1: and then we might wind up with the Secret of the Mirkwood Elves: the Mirkwood Ent, or entwife.
VardaValar1: Or maybe the entwife would be more around the Beornings. : )
VardaValar1: ok, banging the gavel
VardaValar1: If anyone wants to pop into LotRO, we'd be happy to see you. : )
VardaValar1: Namarie for now.
VardaValar1 has left the room.
AriehnV has left the room.
ArPharazonV: there, my post is made
arwenv1 has left the room.
