sure you have to, it just wasn't jumping to mind :}
Eonwe Valar (4:17:22 PM): The recent patch

the RP... :}
Eonwe Valar (4:40:10 PM): If we have no better
Tolkien topics :}
Eonwe Valar (4:40:41 PM): Though that might
interest only 3 of us and one of those three should be doing an essay
instead of talking about the RP :}
Eonwe Valar (4:41:18 PM): http://valarguild.proboards22.com/index.cgi?board

AriehnV (4:46:47 PM): yikes both of you nasty jobs but nice assignment
AriehnV (4:48:05 PM): just a a wee hint .. there is an idea for another
story in the back of my head
Eonwe Valar (4:48:14 PM): hehe
Eonwe Valar (4:48:41 PM): Speaking of ideas in
the back of my head, maybe now that I have a bit of time, I should
start putting mine on paper again.
AriehnV (4:48:44 PM): remember the phrase in the Hobbit about Galion,
the cellar master?
Eonwe Valar (4:48:53 PM): Please tell us :}
AriehnV (4:49:13 PM): somewhere in the last part .. after the escape of
the dwarves with Bilbos aid
AriehnV (4:49:55 PM): there is a phrase .. something like (*no one has
told the story what became of Galion the cellarmaster ....
AriehnV (4:50:05 PM): along those lines
Eonwe Valar (4:50:09 PM): Ah..
TH0R0NGIL (4:50:11 PM): ya
Eonwe Valar (4:50:16 PM): So you plan on telling
the story :}
AriehnV (4:50:26 PM): ;-)
AriehnV (4:50:48 PM): its niggling
AriehnV (4:51:20 PM): i could imagine that he ran of with a bad
conscience and tried to make up somehow for his failure
AriehnV (4:51:41 PM): being an honorable , dutiful elf
Eonwe Valar (4:51:55 PM): :}
Eonwe Valar (4:52:52 PM): Ok, I guess we can go
ahead and call the meeting here, move into Aftermeeting so that those
with lots of work ahead of them can turn their attention even more in
Eonwe Valar (4:53:55 PM): *bangs gavel*
TH0R0NGIL (4:54:05 PM): *grabs ears*
Eonwe Valar (4:54:26 PM): Aftermeeting
:} Feel free to stay
and chat or leave at your leisure :}
ArPharazonV (4:54:53 PM): Eonwe, I'll save, but
you were here before me and will probably be afterwards, so I don't
think I'll send
ArPharazonV (4:55:14 PM): or maybe I'll only
send somewhere next week
Eonwe Valar (4:55:59 PM): Varda will get a copy
from me either way, no worries :}
ArPharazonV (4:56:05 PM): good, good
Eonwe Valar (4:56:57 PM): I guess you won't have
time for the RP anytime soon, Phar?
Eonwe Valar (4:57:01 PM): Not for a month at
ArPharazonV (4:57:23 PM): nope
Eonwe Valar (4:57:29 PM): ok
ArPharazonV (4:57:57 PM): my interest has been
so low, it has even come to my mind that I should draw out...
Eonwe Valar (4:59:00 PM): In the middle of your
own story arc? :}
ArPharazonV (5:00:33 PM): *shrug* Calion might
head out into the forest after his brother and depart from your
Eonwe Valar (5:01:18 PM): Heh, actually, I was
leaning towards Auros helping in the tracking down, heh. Figures. Auros
and Calion could never just get along :}
Eonwe Valar (5:03:44 PM): If I understood
correctly, they'd be heading west anyway, so not really out of the way
so much as a detour for Auros.
ArPharazonV (5:04:34 PM): I doubt I'll go that
Eonwe Valar (5:04:34 PM): Anyway, don't want to
draw too much attention from your essay :}
ArPharazonV (5:04:38 PM): *nod*
ArPharazonV (5:04:45 PM): putting the finishing
touches on the last section
Eonwe Valar (5:04:51 PM): Ah, ok
Eonwe Valar (5:08:10 PM): I thought the tension
between Auros and Calion added something to the story, both being
presumably strong-willed characters.
ArPharazonV (5:08:37 PM): I haven't really
thought about Calion in ages... just too much on my mind these months
Eonwe Valar (5:08:50 PM): Aye, I understand how
ArPharazonV (5:17:22 PM): saved, and keeping it
that way.. anything else is yours
Eonwe Valar (5:17:30 PM): OK
