Eonwe Valar: Any other web news?

ArPharazonV: and Thorim dead, almost ready
Eonwe Valar: Backed up?
Eonwe Valar: Oh, having more to do than you get get out quickly? :}
VardaValar1: That wasn't very clear. I have done some, but not so as to be completed and online.
Eonwe Valar: Sure, I suppose that counts :} We know you'll get it out as quickly as you can :}
VardaValar1: *cough - gaming - cough*
Eonwe Valar: :}
Eonwe Valar: Hey, gotta be ther efor the gamers too :}
ArPharazonV: sorry, still no forum post, been a crazily busy week
ArPharazonV: will try again this week
VardaValar1: You get to do it today, Phar :-)
Eonwe Valar: :}

Eonwe Valar: Gaming:
Eonwe Valar: WoW:
Eonwe Valar: I'd been thinking about it for a while, and finally implmented a rank of Tulca on Lothar as a way to recognize regular members who show commitment to the Guild.
VardaValar1: These are committed gamers, even if not into the overall guild or Tolkien as much as Maiar or Valar are.
VardaValar1: They deserve recognition also.
Eonwe Valar: Seeing as Elwing and Eowyn are the longest active regular members in the Guild branch on Lothar, they got to be our first :}
VardaValar1: Bilbo is one as well, on Uldaman.
VardaValar1: Yay for the Lothar Tulcar!
Eonwe Valar: It's a recognition solely within the guild branch, but I intend to do my best to ensure it's just as well deserved as any full guild honor.
Eonwe Valar: Lothar gaming: Varda, Elwing, Fangorn, Eowyn, Sauron, and myself were all on at some point during the week, and several of us even on at the same time, hehe.
Eonwe Valar: Still a ways to go for bank tab number 5, but we're coming along on it.
Eonwe Valar: Uldaman:
Eonwe Valar: Afraid I have nothing to report on Uldaman. Varda, do you have a report?
VardaValar1: Aye
VardaValar1: We've been more active there than on Lothar server
VardaValar1: Lots of grouping together, running various alts.
VardaValar1: You'll spot some leveling done. : )
VardaValar1: We are also working up crafting.
VardaValar1: End report.
Eonwe Valar: Thanks.
Eonwe Valar: I should also mention before going to LotRO that Blizzard has created a "Bosstiary" for World of Warcraft.
ArPharazonV: (also: new catforms revealed)
Eonwe Valar: Apparently it only covers Ulduar, at least at this time.
karakedi25: clever name, though
VardaValar1: :-)
Eonwe Valar: And aye, new artwork for Druid bear and cat are in the works, and you can see them on the official site(s) as well.
Eonwe Valar: For Night Elves, they'll match hair color, for Taurens, skin tone.
Eonwe Valar: Thanks for reminding me to mention that, Phar, hehe.

Eonwe Valar: Now on to LotRO :} :
Eonwe Valar: Your floor, Varda :}
VardaValar1: Thank you, Eonwe.
VardaValar1: In LotRO, we have a regular Monday 8:30pm Nornuan turtle run.
VardaValar1: We have been running with Lhee's group, including the Kindred of the Blade and some others who like running together often, a friend group.
VardaValar1: This last time, we had the surprise that we had a lot of Valarites available who did not get to run the turtle.
VardaValar1: Our group has grown.
VardaValar1: We are therefore considering doing some Valar only turtle runs, but need to work on gearing up.
VardaValar1: We need to work out times for book and for instance runs, when we can pull in at least 6 of our 60's.
VardaValar1: We need to work up a core group of teachers, then teach all the Valarites the tricks.
VardaValar1: The Book 8 free expansion is coming soon, and it would be nice to be geared up for that.
VardaValar1: We need to be doing the same instances a number of times in a row, to learn them very well and to get gear for all running.
VardaValar1: This means some of us could start earlier, and bring in the folk who come in later for later runs.
VardaValar1: End planning report.
Eonwe Valar: Thanks Varda.
Eonwe Valar: Glad to hear we're doing so well in LotRO, and I hope you all have fun :}
VardaValar1: Possible implementation of Tulca rank there? Not sure how yet though. :-) Don't have the ranks available to add yet.
VardaValar1: You are also a LotRO-ite. Always welcome! : )
Eonwe Valar: :}
VardaValar1: Menelvagor has been popping up in LotRO more too, very nice. : )
VardaValar1: End report.
Eonwe Valar: Thanks :}
karakedi25: May I add something?
VardaValar1: That would be great. : )
Eonwe Valar: Go ahead.
karakedi25: There appear to be 4 of us ready for 1.15.12 now. Maedhroc and I were ready last night, and the other two caught up today.
karakedi25: We're hoping some of our lotro-ites will help fill the ranks.
VardaValar1: Pippin was ready yesterday. I know because I helped him be ready before the planned 9pm run.
VardaValar1: Who are the other two?
karakedi25: Poppi (=Pippin?) and I think the guardian whose name is slipping my mind
VardaValar1: Poppi is Lothiriel
VardaValar1: The guardian is Pippin aka Shamat.
VardaValar1: Is Lothiriel up to it? She was having problems from surgery last night.
karakedi25: ok, Eolric then?
karakedi25: He and Poppi were catching up
VardaValar1: We'll find out online. : )
VardaValar1: That makes a nice group: Maedhros, you, Lothiriel, Pippin, and the one you mentioned.
VardaValar1: Any particular time?
karakedi25: Eolric?
VardaValar1: Only need one more to fill it out. I can do it if you can't get another.
karakedi25: would be delighted to have you
karakedi25: just as well to have someone who knows the instance
VardaValar1: Any particular time planned, or just when we see each other?
karakedi25: no plans though one of them said they can't do it before 9 pm, I believe
VardaValar1: Sounds like Maedhros. He has that time problem
VardaValar1: ok, sounds like a plan
Eonwe Valar: Congrats :}
Eonwe Valar: Any other gaming news before we move to Tolkien? Good time to whisper Tolkien topics is now.
ArPharazonV: well, in our WoW server [Argent Dawn in Europe], just saying that we killed Thorim tonight in our 10-man raid so we'll be visiting Freya for the first time tomorrow... but nothing much else
karakedi25: *whispers* roleplay
ArPharazonV: and of course Fladrif's chess success but that was already mentioned
VardaValar1: Most of the stories I've been seeing lately have been from Tolkien-onlies, and most of them concentrate on a few favorite characters from LotR, such as the twins, or Aragorn and Legolas.
ArPharazonV: and I played Monopoly with Fladrif's girlfriend yesterday *nod* I lost horribly
VardaValar1: Maybe some of you can pick a favorite set of characters for some continuing stories, since it seems to work for them.
Eonwe Valar: By "whisper Tolkien topics" I meant whisper to me, aka PM :}
VardaValar1: Another one prefers stories with Denethor and his family.
karakedi25: ah, sorry
ArPharazonV: we'll see, Varda.. I started my grand Tolkien (re)read this week with a few pages of the Hobbit
VardaValar1: hehe - cool
Eonwe Valar: I suppose I should say "PM" since we're in AIM, but considering I've been using the phrase "whisper TOlkien topics to me" since our bnet days, it's a hard habit to break :}
ArPharazonV: in time the entire world of Arda shall be fixed in my head once more
VardaValar1: Maybe you could do a short or poetry on some of the Hobbit characters? : )
ArPharazonV: hmm, if I find inspiration, who knows
VardaValar1: Whisper is a common way to say it for gaming also. : )
pallandovalar: Still slowly building up assets in eve.
pallandovalar: Still flush with cash, as I somehow managed to not blow it all, so still have time to join and be auto-rich. :-)
VardaValar1: Ah cool. What is it looking like now, Pallando?
Eonwe Valar: :}
VardaValar1: Give yourself an allowance? : )
Eonwe Valar: OK, so ready to move to Tolkien? :}

Eonwe Valar: Tolkien:
AriehnV has entered the room.
AriehnV: aiya folks
karakedi25: aiya
ArPharazonV: Aiya sunshine
AriehnV: :-) Indis :-)
Eonwe Valar: Heya Arien
VardaValar1: Aiya Arien : )
AriehnV: soz for the late coming .. a few skellies and bad timing delayed my rise
Eonwe Valar: You're just in time for the Tolkien chat.
AriehnV: :-)
Eonwe Valar: Varda has a topic, Go ahead.

VardaValar1: In the Hobbit, what are some of the main meetings that Thorin's Company had with other characters, good or bad?
VardaValar1: A kind of listing, not needing to go in depth this meeting.
ArPharazonV: Rivendell, goblins, eagles, Beorn
AriehnV: spiders
VardaValar1: Aye, like that. : )
ArPharazonV: spiders, Mirkwood elves, the men of Esgaroth, Smaug... and a couple of ravens somewhere along there
AriehnV: and a thrush
VardaValar1: Aye : )
ArPharazonV: a thrush, that could be it
Eonwe Valar: *Hears Leonard Nimoy's "Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" playing in his head*
VardaValar1: O no. Now it's in my head too.
VardaValar1: Three trolls
ArPharazonV: eck, I missed the trolls!
Eonwe Valar: Thorin's company met with a Hobbit :}
VardaValar1: That's why you have us!
VardaValar1: True, can't leave that one out.
VardaValar1: Gandalf was back and forth a lot.

VardaValar1: His doings alone could make a movie.
ArPharazonV: funny, looking at the second prequel movie they're making....
AriehnV: *watches it *grin never heard it before
VardaValar1: There is some talk of having part of the Hobbit be in the second movie, and transition the events to LotR.
VardaValar1: That is the most recent I've heard on the movie. Did you have something new there?
ArPharazonV: me? no, but I did remember it was going to be partially about Gandalf's doings during the hobbit, the white council, etc
VardaValar1: Right, that is still the plan.
ArPharazonV: so making a movie about Gandalf's doings in tthe hobbit, like you said...
ArPharazonV: the comment just struck me as either funny, or intentional
VardaValar1: : )
VardaValar1: Both
ArPharazonV: :-)
VardaValar1: Thanky
VardaValar1: Those Hobbit events can all be future discussion platforms.
VardaValar1: You are forewarned!
Eonwe Valar: :}

VardaValar1: Indis asked to discuss the rp tonight.
VardaValar1: We need to see what we can post together as a group this evening.
VardaValar1: Let Menel catch up.
ArPharazonV: working on my post but I won't reach the meeting grounds probably
Eonwe Valar: Ok, let's move to the RP then.
VardaValar1: We have been seeing him more in LotRO and might be able to talk with him about it there.
VardaValar1: Good to know, Phar.
Eonwe Valar: Auros is waiting for a response from Frali.
ArPharazonV: so just post whatever you want, I'll catch up at some point :-) adds to the fun if I don't know where in the conversation I'll step in
karakedi25: Meren is ready to hand Thranduil
karakedi25: 's letter to Auros
VardaValar1: Frali needs to get in there too, been quiet a long time.
VardaValar1: Arien, think you could take a look?
AriehnV: Frali is in the clearing
VardaValar1: Aye, and Auros is waiting for his response.
AriehnV has left the room.
VardaValar1: The oops. : )
ArPharazonV: wrong key again? I know what it's like to almost press escape to break off your chatline because it's what you're used to in WoW...
VardaValar1: Happens a good bit here, aye.
AriehnV has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Menel is online too!
Eonwe Valar: Welcoem back :}
Eonwe Valar: *Welcome
VardaValar1: Aiyata, Arien : )
AriehnV: hantal
Menelvagor Valar has entered the room.
Eonwe Valar: Heya Menel :}
VardaValar1: Menel, well-timed!
Eonwe Valar: We're discussing the RP :}
VardaValar1: We are about to start posting together.
Menelvagor Valar: Aiya!
ArPharazonV: Aiya Menel
Menelvagor Valar: Just rushed home through pouring rain from my brother in law's birthday :-)
VardaValar1: Arien is about to do a Frali post, then we can move on to Meren's news.
AriehnV: aiya menel :-)
VardaValar1: O man!
Menelvagor Valar: posting together? :-)
karakedi25: hail Menelvagor
VardaValar1: We have the whole group! You know what fun it is to do that. : )
Menelvagor Valar: just rain, doesn't kill in Holland :-)
Eonwe Valar: Posting in succession is a better wording :}
Menelvagor Valar: aha :-)
Menelvagor Valar: Took Eonwe and I more than a month to post something together, that's why I was wondering :-)
Eonwe Valar: We're not creating some huge conglomerate post, don't worry :}
Eonwe Valar: A month? couldn't have been that long.
VardaValar1: Nope - just the successive posting, telling each other when we're done.
VardaValar1: Then we refresh/reload, read and the next posts.
VardaValar1: *next person
VardaValar1: Right now, it's Arien's go at posting for Frali.
Eonwe Valar: OK, just looked, I guess it was a month for that joint post after all.
VardaValar1: Done on March 20, but it was a great post and worth waiting for.
VardaValar1: One before it was Jan 26.
Eonwe Valar: I think Phar and I didn't actually start planning our joint post until Feb 16thish. The discussion before that was whether we wanted to take that route.
Eonwe Valar: Er, Menel and I, my apologies.
VardaValar1: And now we get to do a round robin post. Lots of variety in posting types. : )
Eonwe Valar: *Wonders if that wasn't a prophetic slip, hehe*
ArPharazonV: hmm, I hope not, joint posts make me nervous
Eonwe Valar: It's not something Menel and I undertook lightly either :}
VardaValar1: Could be a joint post with others as well, not just the two of you. But you needed to work together on that one.
ArPharazonV: allright, time to really get crackin' on my post.. as always, I've got a few plans, but no doubt I'll largely end up changing and improvising
VardaValar1: Plans are just that, plans. Fill in the reality as it comes. : )
ArPharazonV: *grin*
VardaValar1: Nice thing is Phar's post can come in anywhere, as it's not connected to the group in the clearing.
Eonwe Valar: Upon reflecting on it, I'm not exactly sure *what* a letter from Thranduil to Auros would say. Offer Meren's services? As far as Auros is concerned, his mission ends when he gets back to Rivendell.
VardaValar1: We may "accidentally" braid it in with ours though.
ArPharazonV: we'll see
VardaValar1: Meren wrote it already, was emailed to you as an attachment.
Eonwe Valar: Aye, I read it.
VardaValar1: okie dokie : )
ArPharazonV: I'll probably just make a slightly smaller post than planned and treat the whole covered time as summarized flashback....
karakedi25: so how do we add Meren to the group then?
VardaValar1: We should all be on the Forum now, logged in.
Eonwe Valar: I'm trying to avoid sharing too much detail in the letter because I got the impression Indis didn't want me to share it until/unless I used it in some form.
VardaValar1: You are going to give the mail to Auros.
Menelvagor Valar: Back, sorry, had to check on something on other comp.
VardaValar1: If Eonwe likes, he might read it then ask Meren to read it aloud to the group?
Eonwe Valar: Welcome back.
karakedi25: no, not at all. Please feel free to share whatever you like
Eonwe Valar: Ok, thanks Indis.
Eonwe Valar: Put simply, the suggested letter reads as if it's Auros' intention to go to the ruins of Angmar.
Eonwe Valar: I'm not saying the letter itself is a bad idea, mind you.
karakedi25: that was my understanding, but I see it's wrong
karakedi25: how would we go about fixing it, then?
VardaValar1: Arien and Menel need to log into the forum looks like. Waiting on Arien's post.
Menelvagor Valar: logged in and just checked on Indis's post :-)
Menelvagor Valar has left the room.
Menelvagor Valar has entered the room.
Eonwe Valar: Well, the most obvious choice to me is that Auros' "escort" after journeying to Rivendell is to proceed to the ruins of Angmar, potentially with aid from Rivendell if any can be spared.
Eonwe Valar: Hmm,...
VardaValar1: Ok, must be some lag on my end.
Eonwe Valar: Meren's inclusion in the escort then is towards that goal.
Eonwe Valar: So nothing really changes in that case.
karakedi25: then we can fix the letter to say that: Thranduil asks that Meren join the escort, both to assist on the way and to help out on the continuation.
VardaValar1: Since Auros is the escortee, he needs to be consulted and see if he agrees.
Eonwe Valar: Aye, simply a matter of the letter content.
VardaValar1: Of course Thranduil will expect Auros to say yes, it's ok for Meren to be included. : )
karakedi25: And also his desire that Meren avail herself of the scholarly resources in Imladris
karakedi25: Auros would need a pretty good reason to refuse Thranduil
AriehnV has left the room.
VardaValar1: All of us will do that, and Rivendell welcomes scholarly pursuit. Meren may have done it before?
Menelvagor Valar: I would expect Thranduil to pose the questions less as a question than as an announcement,even to a Noldor.
VardaValar1: Aye, Menel. : )
Eonwe Valar: Aye.
AriehnV has entered the room.
Eonwe Valar: More of a " I *strongytly* recommend..." hehe
AriehnV: post and wrong again lol
VardaValar1: If you like, we can let Auros read the letter, using Indis' letter as his basis.
Eonwe Valar: *strongly
VardaValar1: Indis can check his version to see if it works.
karakedi25: I would faor that
karakedi25: *favor
VardaValar1: How's that for you, Eonwe?
karakedi25: It might be better for Meren to be new to Rivendell?
Eonwe Valar: Sounds good, more or less. My version of a letter will likely be shorter.
VardaValar1: Thranduil would probably write a short, definite letter, aye.
karakedi25: the purpose is to get Meren into the part, so that's fine
karakedi25: *party
Eonwe Valar: I'm guessing by "Auro" you meant "Auros" Arien? :}
VardaValar1: You won't escape. :-)
Menelvagor Valar: I'm not sure what you mean Eonwe ^^
AriehnV: Post aye i guess so too
Menelvagor Valar has left the room.
karakedi25 has left the room.
Menelvagor Valar has entered the room.
Menelvagor Valar: Ahem, sorry, laptop internet cord is a bit shaggy.
Eonwe Valar: Hmm, did I just disappear for a minute?
ArPharazonV: you didn't
Eonwe Valar: OK, wasn't me then. Saw Indis and Menel leave, and it made me wonder.
VardaValar1: I saw Menel and Indis disappear
VardaValar1: just briefly.
Menelvagor Valar: my connection was gone for a sec.
ArPharazonV: Indis is still disappeared
Menelvagor Valar: So Eonwe, what "Auro" were you talking about? :-D
ArPharazonV: hmm... question...
karakedi25 has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Maybe he's going to be an auror.
VardaValar1: Welcome back, Indis. : )
karakedi25: thanks
ArPharazonV: had news of the western outpost's fall already reached the Halls, or were we going to run into a few survivors on the way? I don't remember what the plan was
VardaValar1: Let's scroll back, don't think it had reached the Halls yet though.
VardaValar1: Arien has posted. : )
ArPharazonV: hmm, it appears there has been a messenger for reinforcements
ArPharazonV: so *some* news about an imminent assault would have arrived
ArPharazonV: anyway, carry on, I'm moving back to the post... really need to get the recent history straight ;-)
VardaValar1: Taurdirn set up Calaron's story when he said: The ancient evil rises as the Nazgul seem to have called for aid while they are abroad
VardaValar1: Another replies: Such rumors should not be laid in the ears of travelers.
VardaValar1: So we at least have a rumor of something going on, probably due to the strange darkness.
VardaValar1: Calaron reaches the Halls after one and a half day, after the incident.
ArPharazonV: the day before the assault, while we were at Erebor, Calaron sent out a messenger for reinforcements, that messenger in any case will have arrived by now
VardaValar1: At the meeting: Auros sat in council, listening to the reports from scouts and messengers sent from the western borders of Mirkwood. So far, nothing had caught his interest. Suddenly, screams were heard
ArPharazonV: I'm assuming he did so, and brought a few troops back with him before our party arrived back at the Halls
VardaValar1: Fainan returns and hears this report:
VardaValar1: At last the report came that Fainan had most wished to hear. "After we learned of the strange movements of the enemy, a party checked towards the mountains northwest of here and overheard a group of orcs and humans. They were grumbling that the Witch-king had sent orders to his old minions, long-hidden deep in their old haunts of Angmar, to come out with morgul-knowledge and add to the horrors in Mirkwood.
ArPharazonV: but they didn't arrive in time in any case, and either they were caught between the advancing Orc forces while Calaron moved east, or they missed each other and rounded up some few survivors
VardaValar1: No mention of the attack, but Thranduil says:
VardaValar1: "We shall watch more closely for this new enemy and his special attacks now that we know the source. Also, we must send folk to infiltrate the depths of the Angmarin ruins to find the controlling staff. These people must be good with going underground and with stealth."He looked straight at Auros. "Will you and your party aid against this threat, even if only by sending word to Lord Elrond?"
ArPharazonV: "His next order of business was to call in for reinforcements. He was fully aware that Thranduil had few men to spare, but for victory here, it would be necessary. Since most of the outpost was situated in the trees, there was little space for horses, and there were few. So Calaron gave the messenger he chose to go his own swift horse, the fastest available. As he watched the messenger ride East, he thought back to the heart of the message he had sent. Main Northwestern outpost expecting attack. Lacking in manpower. Commander Calaron, son of Pharion, requesting reinforcements."
VardaValar1: Auros said. "I will take any messages you wish to send to Lord Elrond, but I can do no more."
VardaValar1: "By your leave, Your Majesty, I would like to continue to guard Lord Auros if he allows it. As we travel through Mirkwood, we can investigate the happenings there. Once Lord Auros is safely returned to Rivendell, I would like to continue on to investigate this strangeness in the ruins of Angmar and report back to you."
VardaValar1: That was Fainan talking.
ArPharazonV: all I'm asking now is, did he get the reinforcements or not? ;-) I know they didn't make it in time, but were they sent out?
VardaValar1: So Meren would be traveling with Fainan.
ArPharazonV: sorry, I guess we're browsing two different lines here
Eonwe Valar: I don't think we mentioned any reinforcements sent, as I'm skimming through.
AriehnV: oki Valarin , mellyn in Tolkien , i fear its time to retreat for me and send a farewell glow across the horizon
ArPharazonV: the messenger was on Calaron's horse and left half a day before the battle
VardaValar1: aye, ok, you are talking about when we were at Erebor
ArPharazonV: he would have arrived about a day before our arrival back at the Halls
Eonwe Valar: So arrangements for reinforcements could've been made before we arrived.
VardaValar1: From your other post, he would take about a day and a half asking for reinforcements, but that is not news of the fall, right?
ArPharazonV: I'm just making a post where I catch some recent news atm, so these kinds of details are necessary :-)
Eonwe Valar: Take care Arien :}
ArPharazonV: *nod*
VardaValar1: Namarie, Arien!
Eonwe Valar: Sleep well :}
Menelvagor Valar: Namarie.
ArPharazonV: it's not, Varda, but it was the last news they got from the outpost
VardaValar1: So it's just another attack as far as anyone knows.
ArPharazonV: so I'm just wondering
karakedi25: namarie
ArPharazonV: Namarie Arien!
ArPharazonV: so I guess I have to assume there were reinforcements sent, thanks
VardaValar1: Aye, reinforcements would have gone out.
Eonwe Valar: From Aruos' perspective, it could've been one of those many reports he heard that didn't catch his interest, hehe.
AriehnV: wow 40 guests
Eonwe Valar: *Auros'
VardaValar1: Right. Just another of many combats going on.
AriehnV: Namarie all :-)
AriehnV: cu next week
Eonwe Valar: Take care Arien :}
AriehnV has left the room.
Menelvagor Valar has left the room.
Menelvagor Valar has entered the room.
Eonwe Valar: Welcome back :}
VardaValar1: Welcome back. Menel, did you seem to fall out?
Menelvagor Valar: thanks.
Menelvagor Valar: connection is a bit icky tonight.
VardaValar1: Just AIM being bad?
VardaValar1: Aye, 46 guests in the last 24 hours. They may be searching for the word Nornuan with LotRO.
ArPharazonV: heh, I just realised that Calion and Calaron's mother is called Arienel
ArPharazonV: think Arien would mind?
VardaValar1: Nope. : )
Eonwe Valar: Hehe
Menelvagor Valar: nah, internet cord I think,
VardaValar1: Would expect an -iel ending though?
ArPharazonV: no idea, but this was way back in part 3, and I haven't heard any comments upon it since then ;-)
Menelvagor Valar: sounds a bit weird to me with -ien - iel.
VardaValar1: But it might be lenited, due to the previous ien?
VardaValar1: Aye : )
VardaValar1: Leniting is to make a word flow better.
VardaValar1: Might even go with Areniel, lots of ways to play with it. : )
VardaValar1: Ok, who should post next?
VardaValar1: Auros?
karakedi25: perhaps I should give him the letter
Eonwe Valar: Indis, is there anything in particular that you intended to have Meren say as she handed the letter to Auros, or could I just assume I take the letter, read it, and we go from there?
ArPharazonV: considering it *was* part 3, unless there's any complaints, I'll keep Arienel
VardaValar1: Ah, right. Meren
VardaValar1: She did ask Fainan to walk with her. I could bring them together?
karakedi25: sure, go ahead
Eonwe Valar: I've been considering my part. Figured if I could get ina reply to Frali and the letter from Thranduil in one post, it'd be better.
VardaValar1: okies, one of my fabulous short posts. : )
karakedi25: I can add if necessary, for color
Eonwe Valar: "As she spoke, she glanced around seeking Auros. It was time to deliver Thranduil's message." Hehe, sounds like Meren's trying to be conspicious :}
Eonwe Valar: Considering Auros should be more or less right in front of her :}
karakedi25: not really. She's just trying to get a chance to pass the letter on.
karakedi25: wasn't sure how large the clearing was
Eonwe Valar: From earlier posts, you spotted Auros from the edge :}
karakedi25: OK, I'll revise it.
Eonwe Valar: From my intention of the clearing, not terribly large. Probably not so large as the Bonfire Glade.
karakedi25: fixed
Eonwe Valar: Large enough for room to spar, not so large as to make it impossible to see or hear noise along the outer edge, especially since I placed this clearing near the river.
VardaValar1: Posted.
VardaValar1: It's just a few steps into the clearing's edge, a long way to go to approach the scary Noldo. : )
karakedi25: drafitng now
Eonwe Valar: hehe
karakedi25: done, and super short
VardaValar1: Looks like a Fainan post. Works peachy. : )
VardaValar1: Eonwe's definitely next!
karakedi25: heh
Eonwe Valar: Writing as we speak :}
VardaValar1: Wheee
karakedi25: this is neat
VardaValar1: Now you know why we kept doing this for so long. : )
karakedi25: yes, it's great
Menelvagor Valar: working on getting AIM on my regular comp. :-)
VardaValar1: Fladrif recommends Pidgin. Get it from
Menelvagor Valar has left the room.
VardaValar1: I don't seem to have trouble with my AIM except can't get rid of the timestamp in the log.
Menelvagor Valar has entered the room.
ArPharazonV: post made!
Menelvagor Valar: and back :-)
VardaValar1: VardaValar1: I don't seem to have trouble with my AIM except can't get rid of the timestamp in the log.
Eonwe Valar: I can't help but notice I'm the only Elf whose name doesn't end with an "n" :}
ArPharazonV: the last piece may seem a bit hurried, but I think it works
VardaValar1: Aiyata, Menel
VardaValar1: Noldo! : )
VardaValar1: Frali's dwarf helps break it up.
VardaValar1: You can always doll up a post later, mainly we need to get the action online.
Menelvagor Valar: Press F2 to get rid of timestamp. Or at least, that should be the key.
Menelvagor Valar: And I have no issues with AIM, just that I am more comfortable sitting behind my comp than my laptop :-D
ArPharazonV: or go to the View window and click Timestamp ;-) not sure if it helps with the log but it does for me
Eonwe Valar: Or, on the chat window menu bar, go to Actions, view, timestamp.
VardaValar1: Thanks!
VardaValar1: Ah hah! Calion is about to show up!
VardaValar1: Snuck in a Fainan short post.
ArPharazonV: hmm... *checks Indis' first post* do Calion and Meren know each other or not... I guess Calion knows what she specializes in, but she has little idea who he is...
karakedi25: she knows him by sight but has not really had much interaction with him, as he seems to think himself above her :p
VardaValar1: So he hasn't been one of Meren's students?
VardaValar1: There are other teachers, so it's quite possible.
ArPharazonV: "Of the Noldo's previous escort she knew Fainan slightly and Calion almost not at all, though she was well aware of his status."
ArPharazonV: that seems to exclude any teacher-student interaction
VardaValar1: Aye.
VardaValar1: He might've had the Sindarin teacher.
karakedi25: I could change that, but I had thought she shouldn't know both of them equally
VardaValar1: It works fine, no worries.
VardaValar1: We're figuring out how we react to each other.
ArPharazonV: *nod* maybe I just like to keep track of scholars and teachers and what they do for a living ;-)
ArPharazonV: "Meren, a scholar whom he had often seen at the Halls, and whose knowledge of ancient ruins could be useful for the upcoming trip, as he correctly guessed her involvement. "
VardaValar1: Such folk are important to win the peace.
ArPharazonV: indeed!
VardaValar1: I can die to protect you, but it does no good if there is nothing to protect.
ArPharazonV: and my bit from the Halls to the end of the post does seem a bit rushed, I think I wrote that part within a minute... but I guess it's in working condition
VardaValar1: Aye, it works. : )
ArPharazonV: hardest part was finding the right punctuation for my horse's name
VardaValar1: Tricky one!
VardaValar1: Good ol' easy to spell Hithceleb. *pats horse*
Menelvagor Valar: I'm holding out my post until Eonwe has posted :-)
VardaValar1: Good to have it ready like that. : )
VardaValar1: I see Auros as the main character of "Scouting Ahead" since he's the only scout from Elrond, although everyone else is a type of scout also.
VardaValar1: It's neat that it worked out like that.
Menelvagor Valar: Don't have it ready :-)
VardaValar1: The main scouting part for the Fellowship is done except for the reporting, an essential item, then we might consider the Angmar part a sequel with a new name?
Menelvagor Valar: I want to see what Auros writes before I say anything. Just doesn't seem right to butt in :-)
VardaValar1: It would start with our leaving Rivendell.
ArPharazonV: Shadows of.... nah, that won't do
VardaValar1: lol
VardaValar1: Aye, Menel
Menelvagor Valar: And I'm not really the type for quick small posts :-)
VardaValar1: I was thinking of something like Notepad. Lets you have a plan and then change as needed.
Menelvagor Valar: I prefer to have larger, more significant posts :-)
VardaValar1: I corner the market on quick posts. : )
ArPharazonV: I think Menel tends to have the same preference as me
Menelvagor Valar: You see to have just come up with competition :-)
VardaValar1: Go Meren!
VardaValar1: I also like long posts if the content is there.
karakedi25: I like both kinds :-)
VardaValar1: Indis, after my own heart. : )
Menelvagor Valar: hehe :-)
Eonwe Valar: I prefer whichever I happen to be inspired to do at the time, hehe.
VardaValar1: Right!
Eonwe Valar: Hint: My next one is not a short post :}
Menelvagor Valar: Well, I have some ideas on what to write next, but some of it depends on Auros and his reaction :-)
VardaValar1: We're passing time while you take your time writing.
VardaValar1: I like to throw in a "reaction shot" to your posts, tend to be short. The action scenes tend to be longer.
VardaValar1: Think TV. : )
Menelvagor Valar: think books :-)
ArPharazonV: hmm... reading back, I also found out that I wrote "younger siblings" so I probably have a sister running around somewhere..
VardaValar1: Aye, I do.
Menelvagor Valar: Just not my personal style :-)
Menelvagor Valar: I think in foreground and background, and at this point in time, I am background :-)
VardaValar1: I write and edit books for a living.
Menelvagor Valar: I know you do :-)
ArPharazonV: really? I don't think I knew that..
Menelvagor Valar: You edited a couple things for me as I remember :-)
ArPharazonV: or maybe I'd forgotten at some point
VardaValar1: Pretty thin work right now. Have to get it moving again.
VardaValar1: I edit for the Tolkien Site free for loving it. : )
Menelvagor Valar: I don't suppose that if I were to write a fantasy book you'd edit it for free? :-D
VardaValar1: That would be work. You could probably get a cut rate.
Menelvagor Valar: Good to know. I'd have to pitch that to my current fictionary but possibly future publisher ^^
VardaValar1: Just smile, generally works on me just great.
VardaValar1: Don't have to mention that you had it gone over already. It's often assumed.
Menelvagor Valar: I'd come by smiling from ear to ear giving you the original work :-)
Menelvagor Valar: Well, it's more like I probably can't afford you ^^
VardaValar1: Email is fine! That's a long trip, and you've made it once.
VardaValar1: Thus the cut rate!
Menelvagor Valar: hehe :-)
Menelvagor Valar: And a trip I'd make again in a blink if I had ze money :-)
VardaValar1: Where's that teleporter.
VardaValar1: ?
Menelvagor Valar: Unfortunately I have chosen to spend it on getting a driver's license and a tattoo :-D
Menelvagor Valar: Yeah! Where is it?
VardaValar1: Driver's license is an excellent way to spend it. : )
Menelvagor Valar: Where is my map to the (un)official Kinship House?
VardaValar1: My house. You've been there. : )
VardaValar1: We have a kinhouse on LotRO, just map in anytime!
Menelvagor Valar: Couple thousand bucks down here.
Menelvagor Valar: I'd map in from my comp to the LotRO kinship house and from there to the Valar Kinship House if I could!
VardaValar1: hehe
Menelvagor Valar: And I probably wouldn't be able to get to you from the Airport even if I wanted to :-)
Menelvagor Valar: Sauron made a rather large detour (but a lovely one!) around the countryside :-)
VardaValar1: We'd do a better job picking you up this time. Not so much of a scenic route.
VardaValar1: At least you had the chance to look around a bit. Sorry it was right after a long plane ride.
Menelvagor Valar: No probs :-)
Menelvagor Valar: Wasn't at all long :-)
Menelvagor Valar: Sorry I had to make you wait for me :-)
VardaValar1: That was no problem.
Menelvagor Valar: Pretty bad weather over.... where was it again...? :P
VardaValar1: Although another guy pretended to be you and came to our sign. Glad you sent a picture first. He was playing around.
VardaValar1: Not malicious.
pallandovalar: heyo. I keep forgetting this: Eonwe or Varda, I guess Eonwe, another way to get in contact with me (and my main will see it too, in case I don't log onto pallando for a few days) is to join the eve ingame mailing list "Eru's List"
VardaValar1: Thanks, Pallando!
Eonwe Valar: "Eru's List" eh? Amusing.
ArPharazonV: pff, we are all his Children...
Eonwe Valar: I'll see if I can't find a way to work that into the Games Page info.
Menelvagor Valar: hehe :-)
Eonwe Valar: Once my redesigns are actually finished and working, anyway, hehe.
Menelvagor Valar: I figured the picture would be a good idea. Always good to know who you're waiting for :-)
ArPharazonV: and yes I know that's odd coming from me but let's just say that I have a bit more faith after seeing the Valar (or Eru) in action when I came to your shores
Menelvagor Valar: And I think it was in Atlanta where I had the bad weather.
Eonwe Valar: Even Morgoth believes in Eru, hehe :}
ArPharazonV: true, but Sauron had convinced us that there was no Eru, after all ;-)
Eonwe Valar: :}
Menelvagor Valar: You know what the worst of that trip was actually? :-)
pallandovalar: I could have gone with something boring, but I figured whatever..
Eonwe Valar: I hope it wasn't meeting me in person, hehe.
Eonwe Valar: :}
Menelvagor Valar: not at all Eonwe :-)
VardaValar1: Pallando, the mention is now on the News. The Gaming page will make it more available for long term.
Menelvagor Valar: it was that morning before meeting you actually :-)
Menelvagor Valar: I found out I had a flight booked for Nebraska on the same day I flew over to Dallas :P
Eonwe Valar: Yikes.
Menelvagor Valar: Yeah.
Menelvagor Valar: Minor miscalculation on my part.
Eonwe Valar: Oh yeah, I think I remember you mentioning something about that. But you got it fixed I believe?
Menelvagor Valar: My friend in Nebraska was waiting at the airport and I was just checking my email when he wrote to me I wasn't there and I thereby noticed my mistake.
Eonwe Valar: Ah, ouch.
Menelvagor Valar: Luckily I managed to rebook that flight for the correct date and have my friend come over and pick me up again.
VardaValar1: That could have been sticky. Have to work on managing space-time.
Menelvagor Valar: cost me a couple extra bucks, but it would've been worse if I wouldn't have been able to. Hotel and other flight issues and all.
Menelvagor Valar: Well, I landed in Dallas a few hours after my flight left ^^
VardaValar1: Glad it worked out. Complicated trip.
Menelvagor Valar: yeah, quite complicated.
Menelvagor Valar: Lots of places to visit, not to mention having an almost last-minute change in first and last destination.
Menelvagor Valar: Next time I'll only have 2 or 3 destinations to fly to :-)
Menelvagor Valar: Although I might get a car and drive instead :-D
Menelvagor Valar: After the first destination anyway.
Menelvagor Valar: The Atlantic Ocean makes for silly driving :-D
ArPharazonV: go across the grinding ice....
VardaValar1: Quite a pot hole.
VardaValar1: Eonwe, making headway on your long post?
Eonwe Valar: Yeah, just making a bit of word choice in some spots. Nearing the end.
VardaValar1: Cool : )
VardaValar1: Reaction shots give "white space", instead of a solid mass.
VardaValar1: At least in the forum. : )
Eonwe Valar: :}
Menelvagor Valar: I think it's about time to head to bed. I need to be well rested for tomorrow.
Eonwe Valar: Sleep well Menel.
pallandovalar: hey!
ArPharazonV: Namarie Menel
pallandovalar: the army managed to remember to play colors today!
karakedi25: night, Menel :-)
Menelvagor Valar: Namarie! I'll post my reaciont tomorrow!
pallandovalar: /me applauds
Eonwe Valar: You'll see my post when you wake up, as I'm almost done with it :}
pallandovalar: o/ Menel
VardaValar1: Cool, we'll look for it!
Eonwe Valar: Congrats to the army :}
VardaValar1: Go Army : )
pallandovalar: (they forgot friday. >.>)
VardaValar1: hehe
Eonwe Valar: Shame on them :}
VardaValar1: Bet they were roasted for that.
Menelvagor Valar: holy.... that's the largest typo I made to date. I must be more tired than I thought.... reaction* not reaciont...
VardaValar1: Just tell us it's Dutch.
pallandovalar: come up from working out (outside). pass a few navy. "Hey..what time is it?" "5:07" "did colors play?" "Nope. Army forgot again."
Eonwe Valar: hehe
ArPharazonV: it's only the t that's misplaced if you look at it
Eonwe Valar: Tsl tsk.
ArPharazonV: not that bad
VardaValar1: True
Menelvagor Valar: Anyways, Good night! Sleep Well! (And as usual) Don't Let The Bedbugs Bite!
Eonwe Valar: :}
karakedi25: posted/
VardaValar1: Namarie : )
karakedi25: ?
Menelvagor Valar has left the room.
VardaValar1: Here's a learning curve comparison that Pallando just showed me, for games. : )
pallandovalar: (5:10:45 PM) pallandovalar: I promise I'll save people from the hanging and the crucifixion, but the bulldozer is a pretty tough boss. >.>
VardaValar1: hehehe
ArPharazonV: pff, wow as a straight line, yeah right ;-)
Eonwe Valar: Written, copying to forum reply box.
pallandovalar: no, wow's the curved one
pallandovalar: potbs is straight
pallandovalar: well wait
pallandovalar: I'm the colorblind one
ArPharazonV: then the legend is wrong
pallandovalar: I'll just take your word for it
ArPharazonV: hehe
karakedi25: what's potbs?
VardaValar1: It's a straight line in comparison. : )
ArPharazonV: don't know, I've heard quite a few mmo names, but potbs doesn't ring a bell
pallandovalar: pirates of the burnign sea
karakedi25: ah
pallandovalar: came out..a year or so ago ish?
ArPharazonV: I'll take your word for it then
pallandovalar: did moderatly well at start, fell apart.
VardaValar1: People come try a new thing. Holding them is tough.
pallandovalar: yup
ArPharazonV: hard to keep them away from the more established stuff
ArPharazonV: Lotr, WoW, Eve
VardaValar1: First they had to become the established stuff.
Eonwe Valar: Ok everyone, enjoy.
VardaValar1: Thanks, Eonwe!
karakedi25: :-)
Eonwe Valar: There was one thing that appealed to my sense of humor in Indis' attachment with the suggested letter. It became the last line :}
ArPharazonV: The moonlight, not He moonlight
karakedi25: writing a response now
Eonwe Valar: Lol, thanks and corrected.
VardaValar1: "You do have a horse, don't you?" lol
VardaValar1: I had to look twice to realize you meant Frali at the start, but other than that, great post!
Eonwe Valar: I liked that. Seemed to be something Auros would ask, and appealed to my own sense of humor :}
VardaValar1: A couple of spots show Auros has a sense of humor, good characterization. : )
VardaValar1: Fainan now has a strong urge to leave immediately and get things set up. She still has a book to read and some fast sleeping to do. : )
Eonwe Valar: Editted for clarity at the beginning.
ArPharazonV: pff, can't bring the book with you? ;-)
VardaValar1: There you go.
Eonwe Valar: yeah, tell your horse to drive :}
VardaValar1: Must have it read and in my head. Prefer to travel light and leave such a valuable item at the Halls.
VardaValar1: The horse may well be driving if I get too sleepy, Hir Auros. : )
Eonwe Valar: :}
VardaValar1: She'll warn me if orcs, spiders, or silly children are too near.
Eonwe Valar: I was going to indent the letter for more distinction from the rest of the post, but didn't find any options to do soe that would've done it right.
ArPharazonV: silly children? :-)
ArPharazonV: those are hobbits, silly!
VardaValar1: It worked.
VardaValar1: Hobbits? Never saw one. I hear they don't travel much.
ArPharazonV: I think I saw one passing by about 60 years ago
VardaValar1: I understand one slipped by us once though. Boy did we get in trouble!
ArPharazonV: or is it 80 by now?
VardaValar1: Almost seemed as if it were invisible.
Eonwe Valar: I understand it got into y'alls videls too :}
VardaValar1: Wouldn't you know it?
karakedi25: posted
ArPharazonV: that odd burrahobbit and his 13 friends...
Eonwe Valar: So, how was the letter?
karakedi25: good
karakedi25: she will know that she is tasked with learning as much as she can; perhaps she has another letter for the loremasters at Imladris
VardaValar1: I thought it worked well. I can see it coming from Thranduil.
karakedi25: Yes, not a request but a statement.
VardaValar1: Actually, anyone can study at Rivendell.
VardaValar1: Aye
VardaValar1: They encourage it.
VardaValar1: You know there's an interesting crowd at Rivendell at this time. :-)
karakedi25: Nevertheless, Thranduil may wish to see that she gets all assistance she requests. An introduction from a king never hurts.
VardaValar1: We may see four "silly children", no, five.
karakedi25: Indeed, and she will be interested ;-)
Eonwe Valar: I'm afraid after that big contribution, I need to go afk for a bit. Not sure how long I'll be, so I suppose I should bang the gavel for After-meeting now :}
VardaValar1: Aye, and I need to make a late supper.
ArPharazonV: I'm going to sleep, might make a new post tomorrow
Eonwe Valar: To think we started Tolkien at 40 minutes after the meeting hour, and all this time has been Tolkien/RP related :}
Eonwe Valar: *Bangs gavel*
Eonwe Valar: Aftermeeting :}
karakedi25: Thanks so much for moving the RP forward :-)
VardaValar1: Really doubt Thranduil would have sent a letter to the lore-masters to get her to study. Probably told her to avail herself of the library.
VardaValar1: This is what we do when we get together. Trick is to get together. : )
ArPharazonV: well, that's what these meetings are for, hm?
VardaValar1: Right!
Eonwe Valar: Aye, Elrond would've made the libaries available to her if it were necessary for him to do so.
VardaValar1: Elrond wants everyone to study.
Eonwe Valar: Part of that "any resources available" thing in the letter.
VardaValar1: Ah hah! Indis did post
karakedi25: he did tell her too. The letter would be an introduction
Eonwe Valar: I would say so. The Elves of Rivendell are fairly free with their history, so long as you don't spill anything on it :}
Eonwe Valar: Thanks Pallando :}
Eonwe Valar: Anyway, I must be afk for a while now. Take care all, have fun, sleep well, enjoy readying, and see you next week or in game :}
Eonwe Valar: *reading
karakedi25: :-)
karakedi25: so does my post work?
VardaValar1: Did she misunderstand that the horse comment was for Estarion?
karakedi25: no, she thought it was for her
ArPharazonV: I thought it was for Meren
karakedi25: it was,and that's why she said she had one
VardaValar1: Ahh, you are right.
VardaValar1: The glance is that she reminded Auros of the problem.
VardaValar1: that they had with Estarion.
VardaValar1: I got a kick out of the less scholarly aspects of travel comment. : )
karakedi25: it was meant to be a bit funny
karakedi25: she thinks Auros is stuffy
karakedi25: I hope he'll relax a bit with her...she'll not relax with him until it's clear she won't be violating protocol
ArPharazonV: well, gonna save and send
VardaValar1: Posted.
ArPharazonV: I'll make a short one too then
VardaValar1: Cool :-)
VardaValar1: afk
ArPharazonV: hmm, Estarion lagged behind for a bit, right?
ArPharazonV: only joining us here now again?
ArPharazonV: posted!
ArPharazonV: saving transcript
ArPharazonV (7:56:55 PM): saved  [Times in CDT. Add 1 hour for EDT.]
VardaValar1 (7:58:28 PM): ahh, we had several posts. I put one in too.
VardaValar1 (7:58:48 PM): Does look as if Estarion's posting lagged a bit but it still works.
karakedi25 (7:58:57 PM): I'm modifying to adapt
VardaValar1 (7:58:59 PM): Looks as if we girls walked away
ArPharazonV (7:59:06 PM): nah, I mean he lagged behind in the journey
VardaValar1 (7:59:12 PM): ah ok
VardaValar1 (7:59:38 PM): Calion is supposed to be in this area too.
ArPharazonV (7:59:53 PM): yep, hence my post
VardaValar1 (7:59:53 PM): He kind of got left out of the talk.
VardaValar1 (7:59:58 PM): Thanks
ArPharazonV (8:00:06 PM): I was standing on the edge of the clearing, out of sight to most :)
ArPharazonV (8:00:52 PM): well, transcript sent
VardaValar1 (8:01:34 PM): Modified also
ArPharazonV (8:02:12 PM): I might like these short posts, if they're made frequently
ArPharazonV (8:02:50 PM): they're not as short as Fainan's yet, but who knows!
VardaValar1 (8:03:40 PM): lol
VardaValar1 (8:03:52 PM): Mine got longer.
ArPharazonV (8:04:04 PM): still shorter than mine ;)
ArPharazonV (8:04:06 PM): well, Namarie
karakedi25 (8:04:23 PM): going to copy and delete mine,s so I can put it after Calion's and add a response to him.
VardaValar1 (8:04:37 PM): just modify
VardaValar1 (8:04:41 PM): not delete
VardaValar1 (8:04:45 PM): oh
karakedi25 (8:04:51 PM): it's out of order
VardaValar1 (8:04:51 PM): after his
karakedi25 (8:04:55 PM): I have to put it after his
VardaValar1 (8:05:03 PM): I see your point
ArPharazonV (8:05:07 PM): *grin* there's a disadvantage to joint posting
karakedi25 (8:05:21 PM): yes, bit fixable
ArPharazonV (8:05:26 PM): honestly, it's odd either way, since my post already has you walking
ArPharazonV (8:05:42 PM): but it'll work whatever you choose, no doubt
VardaValar1 (8:05:56 PM): We have other slightly out of order posts. Readers can figure them out generally.
ArPharazonV (8:06:04 PM): it'll be fine
ArPharazonV (8:06:07 PM): goodnight all
karakedi25 (8:06:18 PM): night Phar
