ArPharazonV: Anyway, enough about me. I'm looking forward to
learning about the rest of the characters more than even has been
revealed here :-) But for now, I'm going
ArPharazonV: Saving and sending.
Eonwe Valar: Sleep well Phar :}
karakedi25: night Phar
Menelvagor Valar: I think I've told as much as there is to tell about
Estarion's background as there is, and the rest I basically make up as
Menelvagor Valar: Just like I wrote that battle-song for the RP :-)
Eonwe Valar: Having a bio/background certainly doesn't stop one from creating new stuff :}
VardaValar1: So you know your family, friends, pets, allergies, favorite foods, how you were educated, and your goals in life?
Menelvagor Valar: gives some hint of the state of the Avari nation Estarion gew up in :-)
VardaValar1: Nice : )
ArPharazonV: *nod* I would like to make up background as I go, but it's not working for me. I don't come up with anything, and my personality remains bland, and on occasion, contradictive.
karakedi25: Meren may start a conversation with Estarion about it
Menelvagor Valar: first 5... not exactly.
Menelvagor Valar: And which Estarion would be delighted to recount, some in detail (presenting new details most likely), and some in not so great detail, but rather referring to it, and expecting you to read back *grin*
AriehnV: i always have a lot of clobbing such *biographies " for my rp characters no matter in which universe :-)
ArPharazonV: namarie all! Will read the transcript during the week
Eonwe Valar: A background doesn't have to spell out every day of a person's life either. Highlights that reflect important events of his/her time that would shape the person we see today is generally enough.
AriehnV: Namarie , Phara :-)
Eonwe Valar: Take care Phar :}
AriehnV: a lot fun i mean
VardaValar1: We elves probably don't have real allergies,but maybe dislikes. I ate that same jerked squirrel for three months straight on patrol. Keep it awayyyy.
Menelvagor Valar: haha :-)
Eonwe Valar: :}
ArPharazonV: Well you all know my "pet", don't you? ;)
Menelvagor Valar: I hadn't really thought about food, but then again, what do we know about Avari food?
Eonwe Valar: Ah, Auros' "pet" peeve with Calion, aye :}
Eonwe Valar: Pun definitely intended that time :}
ArPharazonV has left the room.
Menelvagor Valar: is it anything like the other Elvish food, or is it a simplification thereof?
AriehnV: i d think its a lot of venison , mushrooms and berries
AriehnV: maybe even treebark
Menelvagor Valar: hehe :-)
Eonwe Valar: At least among the Eldar, there seemed to be a general joy in cooking. Don't see why the Avari wouldn't share that in some form.
karakedi25: I wouldn't underestimate their abilities
Menelvagor Valar: well, I think they may have a version of Lembas or Mirovur, but differently prepared, seeing as the ingredients are likely to be different.
karakedi25: I'd guess that they have taken what's available and made some art of it
AriehnV: well, grin, i ve read in some book that u can eat some sort of bark when they face eastward i think , its a useful and real survival skill
Eonwe Valar: Differently prepared, maybe not *quite* as potent, based on ingredients, aye.
Menelvagor Valar: True, but as to what I hinted at in a very early post is that the Avari are used to different kind of animals as well.
karakedi25: they've probably spread fairly far east
Menelvagor Valar: like the Squirrels of Mirkwood are much brighter and some of them used by evil.
Eonwe Valar: The orcs certainly had knowledge of herbs and such that made their healing "arts" quite effective, if not as elegant as Elven healing "arts."
Menelvagor Valar: and Estarion hinted that it was different for the Avari.
Menelvagor Valar: Quite true.
karakedi25: Do we have any thoughts about the next bits of action? (That would be difficult without Phar)
VardaValar1: Just seems to say Mirkwood squirrels tend to be black and taste bad.
AriehnV: all right friends, its time for the sun to go westering home ((nice song btw))
AriehnV: Namarie , i shall read ur post with pleasure , Menel :-) and the rest of the script
VardaValar1: Namarie, Arien
AriehnV has left the room.
Menelvagor Valar: hmm... I know I made up a name for the horse that Fainan so graciously bought for Estarion, but I am afraid I have forgotten that name.
Menelvagor Valar: Not sure whether I mentioned in main chat, but do you happen to remember Varda?
Eonwe Valar: I recall that you were trying to pick a name, don't recall if you actually did though.
VardaValar1: Means you can make up a new one. : )
Menelvagor Valar: I did, most likely in side chat with Varda :-)
Eonwe Valar: It would be in one of the meeting minutes if you did.
VardaValar1: Not set until useed in the rp
VardaValar1: I don't keep side chats, sorry don't remember.
Menelvagor Valar: Guess I´ll use part of the name I chose for my Paladin then :-)
Menelvagor Valar: hold on...
Menelvagor Valar: I think it was Steady Wanderer in Quenya.
Menelvagor Valar: Mith-something or something-randir.
Eonwe Valar: Well, it is now 2 and one half hours after meeting start. I shall now bang the gavel and let those who have not already gone be about their business.
Eonwe Valar: Mith would be grey, so not that :}
Eonwe Valar: *Bangs gavel*
Eonwe Valar: Aftermeeting.
Eonwe Valar: Let all who leave come back with a Tolkien topic, lest the Wheel of Destiny be spun again :}
VardaValar1: oops : )
Menelvagor Valar: hmmm...
Menelvagor Valar: I'm kinda liking my Paladin's name, but part of it is simply unusable for a horse from Mirkwood.
Menelvagor Valar: or at least not a horse that doesn't have armour fitted.
Menelvagor Valar: My din's name being Erentiris, which means Iron / Steel Watch / Vigil.
Menelvagor Valar (6:42:28 PM): Eonwe? :-)
Eonwe Valar (6:42:36 PM): Yes?
Menelvagor Valar (6:42:51 PM): Ever named a gnome Noldo? ^^
Menelvagor Valar (6:42:58 PM): on WoW that is :-)
Eonwe Valar (6:43:02 PM): No, but I did name one Eoclaus :}
VardaValar1 (6:43:15 PM): That was a cute story. : )
VardaValar1 (6:43:30 PM): He has a champion elf in LotRO named Auros.
Menelvagor Valar (6:43:49 PM): well, just checking on the Quenya wordlist, and happened on "Gnome"
Menelvagor Valar (6:44:02 PM): to which the direct translation is "Noldo" ^^
Eonwe Valar (6:44:23 PM): Aye, as you already know,
"Gnome" was one of the original names of the Noldor/Noldoli.
karakedi25 (6:44:25 PM): gnome in this case refers to one who is knowledgeable
VardaValar1 (6:44:29 PM): Gnome was the original word for Noldo
Menelvagor Valar (6:45:24 PM): unlike the gnomes in WoW, who are just short :P
Eonwe Valar (6:45:28 PM): :}
Menelvagor Valar (6:45:38 PM): inside joke, sorry :-)
VardaValar1 (6:51:08 PM): I need to go. Been fun. :-)
Eonwe Valar (6:51:15 PM): Take care Varda :}
