ArPharazonV: personally I cleared the first 4 bosses in Icecrown Citadel 10-man this week, more bosses have yet to be implemented *grin*
ArPharazonV: not sure if Arien has anything to say, I don't think we grouped up this week
some heroics and random dungeons with both characters and been through
all three normal new dungeons , managed to gear up a bit but still a
lot to do
AriehnV: Findus dps is coming along nicely :-) despite all
AriehnV: thats it from me L:-)
karakedi25: Now I know why we scarcely saw Varda on LotRO
karakedi25: busy playing the Other Game :-)
VardaValar1: Family was here and some of the comps cannot play LotRO.
VardaValar1: We were stuck with WoW to hang out together.
VardaValar1: Indis, could you tell what happened in LotRO
this past week?
karakedi25: I figured as much, actually,
karakedi25: Well, a few more people reached level cap...
VardaValar1: Yay! Remember who?
karakedi25: a growing number ready to do the instance that provides the tokens needed to get the gear needed for Barad Guldur...
VardaValar1: (New level cap is 65)
karakedi25: hmmmm...can't remember for sure, but several of the regulars
VardaValar1: I'll find out next chance I have to sneak in there. Hoping this evening.
karakedi25: I suppose I could check on the kinship panel (I'm in lotro now)
AriehnV: Menelmacare, ak Menelvagor was very active in LotrO this week
Melkorrim may be ramping up to bring in their group with all high
levels. We were discussing it the little time I was on LotRO this week.
I see that Menelvagor isn't here. He's been hanging out in LotRO a lot,
and now has a level 32 hunter. He and my captain 32 have been hunting
karakedi25: Been fun fellowing with him.
VardaValar1: Nice : )
karakedi25: Aeronwy (Gorlim), Erkenden (Eomer)...
AriehnV: i ve been on on Wednesday as well and am happy the bugger didnt overtake me yet :-P
AriehnV: skirmishing a bit
karakedi25: Maedhroc (Maedhros), Passim (Melkor), Avengelina (Pippin)...
AriehnV: but Indis go on :-)
VardaValar1: (Don't leave out yourself in the capped ones!)
karakedi25: Rana (Landroval), Fainan (Varda), and of course my own Alasse.
VardaValar1: That's enough for a full Fellowship! Yes!
karakedi25: Perianorom (Orome) and Isaniel (Indis) are at 64, and several at 63.
VardaValar1: Soon then.
karakedi25: Pippin and Lindir have alts at 63.
karakedi25: So we're very close
VardaValar1: Excellent. Thank you, Indis.
karakedi25: Nothing new in terms of gameplay, but I will say that Mirkwood is really well done and fun. Good story lines.
AriehnV: i just need four gold and few more levels to be anywhere closer to that .. darn it wont happen
AriehnV: but i wish you all the luck :-)#
karakedi25: we'll look forward to your getting there in due course
VardaValar1: You'll get there. Leveling is faster now.
VardaValar1: And the game up to it is well worth doing. Don't rush to the cap too fast and miss the good stuff.
AriehnV: hehe i ll be lucky i manage it before they stop the game in 2014 :-)
karakedi25: how do you know they'll stop the game in 2014?
VardaValar1: (Please whisper me Tolkien topics if you have one while they are talking about gaming.) : )
AriehnV: i think it was said once in here that the contracts are confirmed to use the material until then
karakedi25: if the game is making money, it will probably be renewed
AriehnV: with Tolkiens editors but of course thats just whats been achieved already , but still can be longer of course
VardaValar1: It's one of the two most popular games, making money, so it has a very good chance of continuing.
VardaValar1: Indis is right. We need to look into our Role-play game in the Forum, even if not all of us are present today.
VardaValar1: Let's pull it up and take a look at where we are now.
karakedi25: I believe mine was the last post, taking care of the Avar
AriehnV: Oh i forgot to mention but it fits into here as well as the item i receeived for chrismas is very useful for the rp game :-) (and meetings i think)
AriehnV: Karen Lynn Fonstad "The Atlas of Tolkien's Middle Earth"
AriehnV: might come in handy :-)
Eonwe Valar: I use that :}
oh, tangenting slightly from Arien's comment, I got a WoW daily
calendar for 2010 this Christmas, with artwork and screenshots from all
over the game every day *grin* but back to Arien
ArPharazonV: I use the atlas too, but not for the rp much, as I keep it upstairs
VardaValar1: Grats. That is a good book. A few off spots in it, inevitable of course, but an excellent reference we like to use.
ArPharazonV: but I can always fetch it or look into it if I'm doubting something
VardaValar1: Move it, Phar, when needed. : )
AriehnV: hehe i got most books here on the shelf in the cupboard beside me
VardaValar1: Same. A shelf just for them.
AriehnV: apart from LotrO which is on my bedside table atm
AriehnV: err LotR of course :-D
I read upstairs in my bedroom, so it's hard to keep them down here next
to the pc without having to bring them up every time I try to find a
reference to something
VardaValar1: Last post was made by Indis, for the RP.
ArPharazonV: we can just wing it and see where we go but it would be nice to lay down some groundwork for the next few posts
VardaValar1: What groundwork do you want, Phar? We can do that now.
ArPharazonV: the sleepers are awakened, so time for a new plan... do we flee, do we fight, do we get orcs on us?
AriehnV: correct it was after Auros had brought Estarion to her and dosed him with a slightly smaller amount of her medicine than Frali
ArPharazonV: well, rescued, anyway, even if they're still asleep
AriehnV: the next post of Frali would involve his wakening up but will he plunge into a fight straight a way?
d be quick enough to handle it of course but i should know if i post
for the orc actually stumbling over him as well or whether indis would
AriehnV: she could for example discover the orc or her horse and see him stumble over Frali
AriehnV: then he could wake up
fladrifv has entered the room.
fladrifv has left the room.
AriehnV: or i post an inbetween with the fact that he is awake already
AriehnV: or coming to senses when the orc stumbles over him
fladrifv has left the room.
AriehnV: but i need to know how and what ?
VardaValar1: I can't see us letting the orc stumble over Frali.
karakedi25: how would you like to play it?
VardaValar1: The orc could get kicked by a horse into Frali's reach though.
ArPharazonV: kicked by a horse before stumbling over Frali? :-)
VardaValar1: That would make him easier meat for an awakening Frali's axe.
VardaValar1: The Mirkwood horses would be used to fighting situations, not simple riding horses for parades. : )
AriehnV: one of you should write for the horse then i think
AriehnV: i ll respond to that
AriehnV: or Frali watches the horse kick the orc over to him .. you decide
VardaValar1: Indis just posted, so I could post next.
VardaValar1: Unless one of you would like to?
karakedi25: yes, I don't want to overrun the RP with my posts
ArPharazonV: I'd say, whoever's horse it is, should write the post :-)
fladrifv has entered the room.
ArPharazonV: Aiyata Flad
VardaValar1: Aiya Flad : )
AriehnV: Aiya Ent :-)
VardaValar1: Hithceleb would be delighted to kick, used to such things.
karakedi25: sounds good
VardaValar1: Reply up.
VardaValar1: That should give us some fun to work with. : )
arwenv1: I'm back, btw :-)
arwenv1: we had our hour on algalon, what a fun/complex fight :-)
VardaValar1: Sounds great! Get a handle on it? Win?
arwenv1: we didnt win, but after an hour he goes away
arwenv1: only 1 hour to fight him a week :-)
VardaValar1: Sounds like you had a blast though.
arwenv1: I did :-)
arwenv1: Blizzard put a lot of thought and art time into that fight
VardaValar1: Arwen here is a fabulous healer on WoW Lothar server. : )
VardaValar1: She is even two of them. : )
arwenv1: just one :-)
VardaValar1: Used to be two of them. : )
AriehnV: hmm i guess me next then :-) ..
arwenv1: well I healed on my paladin for awhile, and I have two priests, but one of them is just a bank now
VardaValar1: Everyone will be reacting to that rp situation. Frali has the biggest chance to do something, aye.
karakedi25: Yes, I'd think so, Arien. And I'll play it based on what you write.
do you want a stramash . a fight with the orc parrying and an exchange
of blows or rather one quick kill that Frali lands actually before the
orc hits ground?
VardaValar1: Won't be much time for a skirmish. We have too many warriors near Frali who would jump in and help dispatch a lone orc scout.
AriehnV: oki do one fateal mighty blow it is
VardaValar1: Fainan will have him perforated shortly, for one. ;-)
ArPharazonV: I bet Calion's getting out a throwing dagger as we speak!
ArPharazonV: not that I'm posting right now, but you get the point
VardaValar1: We should all at least have a reaction post.
don't have to say if the mighty blow actually killed him. It can be
aimed and going, leave some suspense. Or not. Your choice.
hehe, everyone writing a post about aiming an attack at him, and in the
end he gets stabbed and slashed and peppered with arrows from all sides
VardaValar1: That's a cute post, Arien. : )
VardaValar1: I agree with Phar. Let's start doing the overkill!
VardaValar1: Frali does the actual kill, but the body will have a few extra hits. hehe
AriehnV has left the room.
arwenv1 has left the room.
AriehnV has entered the room.
AriehnV: woops sorry closed the window by accident
AriehnV: but i saw you had typed something what was that?
ArPharazonV: last sentence was "VardaValar1: Frali does the actual kill, but the body will have a few extra hits. hehe"
AriehnV: hehe :-)
VardaValar1: : )
VardaValar1: Phar, like to throw a dagger?
ArPharazonV: sure, I'll do that
VardaValar1: Browser misbehaving.
karakedi25: short additional post
AriehnV: just thinking this body must be a right mess alas
AriehnV: but so it goes
ArPharazonV: it's allright so far, my dagger hasn't even hit him (though it would have if his head was still in place)
AriehnV: hehe aye true
ArPharazonV: so it's just a decapitation and wherever Fainan's arrow landed so far
VardaValar1: More than one arrow.
AriehnV: but the story can go on now
VardaValar1: Eonwe is also posting
ArPharazonV: hmm :-)
karakedi25: have to leave now, but will check to see if there are more posts when I get back :-)
Eonwe Valar: Posted.
VardaValar1: Nice : )
VardaValar1: Estarion's not awake?
ArPharazonV: was there elanor in Rivendell? I remember its first mention in Lorien...
VardaValar1: He should wake soon.
Eonwe Valar: Didn't seem so to me.
VardaValar1: Aye, doesn't seem so.
VardaValar1: Partly because the rascal hasn't posted that he's waking up. : )
Eonwe Valar: Think of it used like perfume.
ArPharazonV: heh... perfume, right
Eonwe Valar: I.e, a hint of an elf-maiden.
VardaValar1: It could have been imported just for the Rivendell area.
Eonwe Valar: :}
VardaValar1: The music may have been affecting more than one person.
Eonwe Valar: Auros is 3kish years old, after all :} Had to have come across one at some point :}
VardaValar1: One hopes!!
VardaValar1: Estarion's being asleep helps handle the problem of Menelvagor's not being here.
VardaValar1: There's a hint of a scout who might be escaping.
VardaValar1: Should we allow this for story purposes or kill it?
ArPharazonV: let's hope he posts at some point though, or we might be carrying a sleeping elf to Rivendell
VardaValar1: Drop him off if necessary. : ) Some patrol can take him home.
ArPharazonV: I could turn it into a message for Calaron but I doubt he'd be travelling any faster than us on our horses
ArPharazonV: so it'd be a bit pointless
ArPharazonV: we could let him gather up some more Orcs and then we ride while they fire arrows at us ;-)
VardaValar1: Fainan needs to return the ferry to the other side and return by a rope.
VardaValar1: The noise may have disturbed spiders, and they don't have to be part of the party waiting on the orcs.
VardaValar1: But they could be...
VardaValar1: Or could send them a message.
AriehnV: I can poke Menel if you like
AriehnV: i should meet him at some point .. he s too late for the fun anyway but he still can wake up and be able to ride
guys can find another scout if you like, and get Estarion dumped over a
horse if necessary, and keep a sharp lookout while getting ready to
VardaValar1: Do we just leave the body? Bury it? Pull it back away from the water that it might contaminate?
VardaValar1: Your problem, not mine. ;-)
ArPharazonV: hang him from a tree so the incoming Orcs know what they're dealing with ;-)
VardaValar1: Not bad!
VardaValar1: Any of us have that mind-set?
ArPharazonV: I'm not sure. I might. They're invading my home, after all.
ArPharazonV: but it doesn't sound like me, anyway...
ArPharazonV: could be a chance for Meren to show a dark side *grin*
VardaValar1: She just left for a family event.
ArPharazonV: well she'll be reading this! We don't have to continue writing that much tonight.
VardaValar1: I could write more, but don't like to post after myself. : )
VardaValar1: Leaving breaks for others to jump into.
AriehnV: but sounds a good idea to me
VardaValar1: So, Frali might consider that, or the head on a pike bit.
VardaValar1: pike could be a quickly sharpened dead stick lying about.
AriehnV: true enough , will post it
AriehnV: done phluck :-P anyways i think its time to head towards bed slowly but surely
AriehnV: i think you guys can work from there without me a bit and i ll find out when my turn is again :-)
AriehnV: Namarie for now :-)
VardaValar1: I hear the call of the wild supper. *stalk*
ArPharazonV: I won't be staying long either
AriehnV has left the room.
VardaValar1: reading the post
VardaValar1: Actually expected Frali to find a stick and give one end a quick sharpen with the axe, but that works.
VardaValar1: The party will not be thinking of Frali as a kid after that one.
VardaValar1: He's a little scary.
VardaValar1: I'll check later to see if anyone else posted. :-)
VardaValar1: Namarie for now!
Eonwe Valar: Take care.
ArPharazonV: I'll not be posting tonight.
ArPharazonV: Going to bed soonish.
VardaValar1: Could be some good reaction posts. :-)
VardaValar1: During the week, we may post more.
VardaValar1: Rest well!
VardaValar1 has left the room.
ArPharazonV: saving and sending
