though I'm sure Varda and Eonwe will take care of further discussion,
though for some reason there never seems to be any after I leave
VardaValar1: Great to have all the rp'ers at once.
ArPharazonV: 29th today, right? well, where you are?
Eonwe Valar: Aye, 29th .
ArPharazonV (6:57:59 PM): saved
VardaValar1 (6:58:17 PM): 29th here
Eonwe Valar (6:58:47 PM): You know, I wonder if we're going to get to swim in the Enchanted River come December 1st :}
VardaValar1 (6:58:57 PM): ohh!
Eonwe Valar (6:58:58 PM): Or whenever that part of Mirkwood is added :}
ArPharazonV (6:59:18 PM): debuff: drowsiness?
VardaValar1 (6:59:20 PM): Probably not. It's the south side where Lorien is attacking Dol Guldur.
VardaValar1 (6:59:23 PM): hehe
ArPharazonV (6:59:28 PM): your screen becomes transparant and shows elven feasts...
Menelvagor Valar (6:59:29 PM) has left the room.
Indis V (7:00:01 PM): I'm fairly certain that the Elven King's realm will not be part of the expansion
Eonwe Valar (7:00:38 PM): I got the impression it should be at some point, just not until a few books in, or until the 3 volume starts, whichever.
VardaValar1 (7:00:55 PM): Not yet
VardaValar1 (7:01:04 PM): Rohan will come later in this expansion.
ArPharazonV (7:01:16 PM): *ponders* this was my first post in part 6
ArPharazonV (7:01:18 PM): silly me
Menelvagor Valar (7:01:24 PM) has entered the room.
VardaValar1 (7:01:28 PM): So probably a lot more coming.
VardaValar1 (7:01:32 PM): Welcome back
Menelvagor Valar (7:01:34 PM): back again.
Menelvagor Valar (7:01:39 PM): thanks.
Eonwe Valar (7:01:41 PM): Welcome back :}
ArPharazonV (7:01:53 PM): Aiyata Menel
ArPharazonV (7:04:02 PM): aaand sent
ArPharazonV (7:04:17 PM): Namarie all~!
Eonwe Valar (7:04:18 PM): Take car eand read the Rp tomorrow morning :}
ArPharazonV (7:04:24 PM): morning? no
Eonwe Valar (7:04:25 PM): It'll have at least one new post :}
ArPharazonV (7:04:25 PM): I'll try evening
Eonwe Valar (7:04:28 PM): When you get a chance then :}
Indis V (7:04:29 PM):
drat, I lost track of the time. I have to leave for dinner at father's
house. Will have to read the log and rp and add as I can
VardaValar1 (7:04:31 PM): Another thing
VardaValar1 (7:04:34 PM): Namarie!
VardaValar1 (7:04:38 PM): Nearly done anyway
Eonwe Valar (7:04:48 PM): Enjoy your family and dinner Indis :}
VardaValar1 (7:04:50 PM): With all that rain, the reek will be diminished greatly.
VardaValar1 (7:05:05 PM): Have a great dinner!
ArPharazonV (7:05:07 PM): well the horses have smelled it, so they're bound to be pretty close
VardaValar1 (7:05:19 PM): The reek from Dol Guldur.
ArPharazonV (7:05:19 PM): 's why I'm now occasionally looking downstream for signs of them
ArPharazonV (7:05:25 PM): hm?
ArPharazonV (7:05:30 PM): I thought you meant the Orcs
VardaValar1 (7:05:33 PM): hehe
ArPharazonV (7:05:34 PM): what reek are you talking about?
VardaValar1 (7:05:40 PM): from Dol Guldur
ArPharazonV (7:05:48 PM): have we seen this before?
ArPharazonV (7:05:52 PM): or... smelled?
VardaValar1 (7:05:54 PM): Also the one we added in-game more of.
VardaValar1 (7:05:57 PM): hehe
Indis V (7:06:03 PM): Namarie!
VardaValar1 (7:06:08 PM): We've been talking about it, yes.
Indis V (7:06:17 PM) has left the room.
ArPharazonV (7:06:20 PM): Ah.
Eonwe Valar (7:06:22 PM): Take care Indis :}
ArPharazonV (7:06:29 PM): Well, anyway, I'll be off.
VardaValar1 (7:06:32 PM): One of the things coming from the ruins of Angmar that we're checking into.
ArPharazonV (7:06:32 PM): namarie!
VardaValar1 (7:06:38 PM): Namarie!
ArPharazonV (7:06:56 PM): if you see a problem with my post (though not sure why you should) I'll find out about it eventually, next week if not sooner
ArPharazonV (7:07:16 PM): *vanishes into his cave*
ArPharazonV (7:07:18 PM) has left the room.
VardaValar1 (7:09:26 PM): I hope others of you remember the reek. : )
Menelvagor Valar (7:09:51 PM): I hadn't to be honest
VardaValar1 (7:10:36 PM): We used other words.
Eonwe Valar (7:10:50 PM): Reek as in smell? Didn't remember one coming from Dul Guldor.
VardaValar1 (7:11:20 PM): It was causing the corruption
VardaValar1 (7:11:28 PM): He was talking about smell, not me.
VardaValar1 (7:11:53 PM): As in that's what the darkness around Angband and Mordor are called.
Eonwe Valar (7:12:19 PM): If
we're talking about the "Gulhuine," I started off this chapter with the
idea that the rain had washed some of that out of the air.
Eonwe Valar (7:15:56 PM): Comments like "In places where the Eldar frequent, it was almost hard to imagien this place was called Mirkwood."
Eonwe Valar (7:16:03 PM): *imagine
VardaValar1 (7:17:11 PM): Right, that is what I meant. Thanks.
Eonwe Valar (7:17:22 PM): ok :}
Eonwe Valar (7:19:43 PM): You now have a bit for Auros to read :}
VardaValar1 (7:20:32 PM): It should mess with the local orcs and other baddies, especially Calion's other self.
VardaValar1 (7:20:41 PM): Make him more able to resist possession maybe.
Eonwe Valar (7:20:43 PM): :}
Eonwe Valar (7:22:39 PM): Modified post a little bit. One too many mentions of the cloak in succession.
VardaValar1 (7:24:39 PM): hehe - understood!
AriehnV (7:25:07 PM): hehe who is to be waking up? Estarion? or both or Frali?
Menelvagor Valar (7:25:26 PM): me :P
Menelvagor Valar (7:25:30 PM): he's hauling me up I think
Eonwe Valar (7:25:30 PM): Wayward dreamer = Estarion, since he's the one trying to float off :}
AriehnV (7:25:32 PM): aye
VardaValar1 (7:25:38 PM): Any coming out of the water.
VardaValar1 (7:25:55 PM): Auros might pull up Estarion
VardaValar1 (7:26:21 PM): Without Estarion, Fainan can pull up Frali, especially if Meren is helping. Lot of armor!
Eonwe Valar (7:26:39 PM): Estarion
would have to be the one Auros pulls out at this point. He had to let
go of Frali just to make sure Estarion didn't float away, and since his
other hand is holding onto the rope to make sure he doesn't go in,..
Eonwe Valar (7:27:09 PM): Assuming Estarion's cloak stays fastened about his neck, hehe.
VardaValar1 (7:27:23 PM): Choking him might prevent swallowing water.
Eonwe Valar (7:27:28 PM): :}
Eonwe Valar (7:27:50 PM): Might translate in a dream to an orc wrapping his hands around his throat :}
Menelvagor Valar (7:29:42 PM): couldn't help but answer to that post.
VardaValar1 (7:30:10 PM): hehe
VardaValar1 (7:30:38 PM): The orcs coming from one side, dragging the drowning out, and a fight with you two on the ferry side.
Menelvagor Valar (7:30:38 PM): slightly different than what you had expected, or it might have turned out to get Auros' hand chopped off ^^
Menelvagor Valar (7:31:25 PM): I have no intention of fighting Auros, except in training, we've already proven he's my better at swordsmanship
VardaValar1 (7:34:34 PM): Not a real fight, as he's trying to save you and you're not exactly awake.
Eonwe Valar (7:34:38 PM): Either way works :}
VardaValar1 (7:34:44 PM): But distracting!
VardaValar1 (7:35:02 PM): We are not all together in repelling orcs. So there will be individual action.
Menelvagor Valar (7:35:13 PM): aye
Eonwe Valar (7:35:24 PM): Although "Auros One-hand" doesn't sound quite as prestigious :}
VardaValar1 (7:35:28 PM): hehehe
VardaValar1 (7:35:34 PM): It worked for Maedhros.
Menelvagor Valar (7:35:46 PM): though
you, Calion and Auros will need to get free of distraction soon, or the
only one doing any orc fighting will be the scholarly Meren
Eonwe Valar (7:35:49 PM): Yeah, and he became a very deadly lefty :}
VardaValar1 (7:36:04 PM): Meren is helping drag Frali out of the water, maybe.
Menelvagor Valar (7:36:05 PM): I'm already a deadly lefty :P
Eonwe Valar (7:36:10 PM): :}
Menelvagor Valar (7:36:14 PM): don't need my right hand chopped off for that
Eonwe Valar (7:36:21 PM): Nor do I :}
Eonwe Valar (7:36:43 PM): You know, my 2008 Lefty Calendar suggests Theoden was a lefty.
VardaValar1 (7:36:46 PM): Then the equivalent, lose the right.
VardaValar1 (7:36:54 PM): lose the left instead.
VardaValar1 (7:37:02 PM): The actor?
Eonwe Valar (7:37:18 PM): As I recall, it just said Theoden, nothing about the actor.
Eonwe Valar (7:37:35 PM): I don't recall anything to prove that, unfortunately.
Eonwe Valar (7:38:12 PM): Would be quite interesting. We don't get to hear the handedness of too many of Tolkien's characters.
VardaValar1 (7:38:36 PM): Lets us imagine them as the same handedness as ourselves? : )
Eonwe Valar (7:38:48 PM): We
know about Maedhros because he lost his right hand. The majority are
typically right-handed, but lefties tend to have the edge in combat.
Menelvagor Valar (7:38:52 PM): about 1 in 10 being lefties then.
Menelvagor Valar (7:39:02 PM): or is it closer to 1 in 25?
Eonwe Valar (7:39:06 PM): *majority of the human population anyway.
Eonwe Valar (7:39:15 PM): I think it's about 1 in 10.
VardaValar1 (7:39:33 PM): If they are left-eyed and left-handed, they are really good.
Menelvagor Valar (7:39:43 PM): well, I'd still rather not have to go against 9 righties if it comes to a war of lefties versus righties
VardaValar1 (7:39:55 PM): hehehe - good point!
Eonwe Valar (7:40:02 PM): lol.
Menelvagor Valar (7:40:17 PM): besides, I can only wield my trusty scissors with my right hand, so I *may* throw my lot in with the righties ^^
VardaValar1 (7:40:46 PM): I could not feel "right" about going against people for being lefties. I have a lefty son too!
Eonwe Valar (7:40:50 PM): Well, consider if you had a skilled righty who could take 3-5 enemies at once..
Eonwe Valar (7:41:15 PM): Now
make that guy a lefty with equal skill, and he gets the advantage that
his enemies likely haven't fought enough lefties to be good against
Menelvagor Valar (7:41:39 PM): and the lefties most likely having to practice against righties...
Eonwe Valar (7:41:43 PM): Aye.
Menelvagor Valar (7:41:55 PM): which would come down to just about 4-6, or 5-7 enemies at once...
VardaValar1 (7:41:58 PM): True on the practice!
Menelvagor Valar (7:42:31 PM): coming
down to just about 3 quarters of the world population be destroyed over
yet another reason that no one ever bothered to consider completely and
VardaValar1 (7:42:43 PM): So, that our next war? : )
Eonwe Valar (7:43:07 PM): We lefties will overthrow our right-handed opressors :}
Menelvagor Valar (7:43:10 PM): well, or some other trumped up reason that any intelligent person should be able to say that it was completely bollocks.
Menelvagor Valar (7:43:18 PM): yesh!
Menelvagor Valar (7:43:26 PM): lefty guitars for guitar hero!
Menelvagor Valar (7:43:38 PM): let the righties have to opt in the righty flip for a change!
Eonwe Valar (7:43:49 PM): Ned Flanders shall supplies our office goods!
Menelvagor Valar (7:43:58 PM): not to mention experience the whammy bar being on the wrong side!
Eonwe Valar (7:44:01 PM): Aye, hehe :}
VardaValar1 (7:44:01 PM): yay!
Eonwe Valar (7:45:57 PM): Left is West anyway, and anyone who reads Tolkien knows that West is good :}
Eonwe Valar (7:46:46 PM): One could say that it's East that's Sinister :}
VardaValar1 (7:47:11 PM): hmm - interesting. : )
Menelvagor Valar (7:47:39 PM): Well, that depends.
Menelvagor Valar (7:47:44 PM): are you facing north or south?
Eonwe Valar (7:48:07 PM): Reading a map, so north would be the direction you're facing :}
Menelvagor Valar (7:49:10 PM): isn't the Belt of Orion to the north though?
Menelvagor Valar (7:49:31 PM): or does that change depending on season?
Eonwe Valar (7:49:42 PM): Think that depends on the season...
Menelvagor Valar (7:49:48 PM): and sorry, just joking around *grin*
Menelvagor Valar (7:49:56 PM): I'm in a giddy mood
Eonwe Valar (7:50:10 PM): Constellations aren't my strongest spot though.
Menelvagor Valar (7:50:32 PM): nor mine
Menelvagor Valar (7:50:48 PM): just that my mind is wandering on another certain shining star
Menelvagor Valar (7:51:01 PM): aka a girl
Eonwe Valar (7:51:04 PM): The tilt and location of the earth on its orbit would make the stars change locations slightly depending on season I'm sure.
Eonwe Valar (7:51:13 PM): hehe
Menelvagor Valar (7:51:30 PM): well, that's not exactly true either.
Menelvagor Valar (7:52:20 PM): though
the stars are certain to orbit around a centerpoint in the galaxy, just
as earth does around the sun, on a cosmic scale, it's earth that's
changing position more than the stars do.
Eonwe Valar (7:52:47 PM): That's what I mean, changing position in the sky, not their absolulte position in relation to the galaxy.
Menelvagor Valar (7:52:57 PM): hehe
Menelvagor Valar (7:53:12 PM): sorry, I must be in an extremely good mood to be so .... picky
Eonwe Valar (7:53:30 PM): hehe
[Note: removed private conversation, nothing bad, just personal. ]
AriehnV (8:13:38 PM): Namarie for now
Eonwe Valar (8:13:46 PM): Sleep well Arien :}
Menelvagor Valar (8:13:48 PM): Namarie Arien!
VardaValar1 (8:13:55 PM): nighty night
AriehnV (8:14:05 PM) has left the room.
Menelvagor Valar (8:14:10 PM): sleep well, and may Ithil not chase you too hard this night!
Menelvagor Valar (8:14:17 PM): or whatever his name was *grin*
Eonwe Valar (8:14:30 PM): Tilion, Ithil/Isil = Moon, so close enough :}
Eonwe Valar (8:15:13 PM): Arien/Anar just seems to keep going, not too concerned about who's following :}
Menelvagor Valar (8:15:26 PM): Yeah, but was looking for the correct name, as Anor is not exactly, yet is, Arien
Eonwe Valar (8:23:38 PM): I don't know what I'm going to do there, but I'm considering hopping into LotRO for a bit.
VardaValar1 (8:27:28 PM): Check your quest log? Epics?'
VardaValar1 (8:28:10 PM): I'm going to look around Lorien and see if I can tell where we are going to depart from.
Eonwe Valar (8:28:14 PM): I
should probably char surf first, then I should probably try to get book
3 moving so I can get further into Angmar. I've got 2 light blue items
specifically for Champions waiting on my ability to gather materials.
VardaValar1 (8:28:26 PM): Probably be special spot though.
VardaValar1 (8:28:37 PM): There's more than that.
VardaValar1 (8:28:46 PM): After those you go for a special trait.
Eonwe Valar (8:28:47 PM): One's a weapon, one I don't think I've decided which I was going to take.
Eonwe Valar (8:29:02 PM): Cool :}
Eonwe Valar (8:29:31 PM): The
quests are still orange to me, so I hope to get the items while they're
still be a boon and not something I put away because I'm too much of a
collector to sell them :}
Eonwe Valar (8:30:49 PM): *while they'll still be, or while they're still..
VardaValar1 (8:31:04 PM): AIM is killing me in LotrO
VardaValar1 (8:31:22 PM): Do you need Carn Dum and Urugarth for that/
VardaValar1 (8:31:24 PM): ?
Eonwe Valar (8:31:59 PM): Don't think so, yet. Gotta collect some warg stuff and spider stuff if memorey serves.
Eonwe Valar (8:32:23 PM): *memory, bah.
VardaValar1 (8:32:29 PM): okies - later
