You have just entered room "valarguildmeetingplace."
AriehnV has entered the room.
AriehnV: aiya Ar :-)
ArPharazonV: Aiya!
AriehnV: how are you?
ArPharazonV: Good, though we didn't get far in the raid. One of our players had connection issues and we couldn't replace her.
AriehnV: bah
AriehnV: which raid was it?
ArPharazonV: Dragon Soul. We'd stopped after Ultraxion last time, so we were on Blackthorn, which is really hard without the proper ranged.
AriehnV: i see
AriehnV: i am just checking whether i have to prod some folks out of LotrO for the meeting hehe
ArPharazonV: That might be a good idea, yes, if you can reach them.
AriehnV: Varda is coming i think
AriehnV: and the others heard it as well
fladrifv has entered the room.
ArPharazonV: Aiya
fladrifv: Aiya
ArPharazonV: Varda's not here yet, but Arien's trying to bring her in from LotRO :-)
AriehnV: Aiya :-)
AriehnV: Glorfindel just logged on
Glorfindel VG has entered the room.
Glorfindel VG: Aiya
AriehnV: and here he is our shining dancing star
AriehnV: aiya Glorfindel :-)
Glorfindel VG: Good day :-)
karakedi25 has entered the room.
AriehnV: good evening you meen .. your in the minority :-)
karakedi25: Aiya
AriehnV: aiya Loremaster
karakedi25: :-D
karakedi25: won't be able to stay long (in-law dinner out), but will participate as I can
ArPharazonV: Aiya :-)
VardaValar1 has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Aiya Arien, Ar-Pharazon, Fladrif, Glofindel, and Indis :-)
AriehnV: Aiya Varda :-)
ArPharazonV: Aiya
VardaValar1: Thanks to Arien for reminding me of the time! Clobbering orcs and forgot the clock.
karakedi25: aiya Varda
karakedi25: but clobbering orcs feels so goooood!
AriehnV: it does .. *nods*
AriehnV: banging gongs as well
AriehnV: ;-)
VardaValar1: Leaving LotRO
karakedi25: LotRO waves goodbye
VardaValar1: Can't really concentrate on the meeting and LotRO at the same time. Usually a string of tells in both places, gets to be a bit much. :-)
VardaValar1: Eonwe may be trying to get in some last minute programming and may be late.

VardaValar1: Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo!
VardaValar1: Membership:
VardaValar1: It's been a wonderful Christmas and New Year, with many of us busy with family in real life so we've not been pushing grouping in any of our games.
VardaValar1: But now we're back. :-)
VardaValar1: We have some folk now gaming in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Are any of you in it?
VardaValar1: We need to pick a common server for the kin, even if we're a shadow group as we are in many games.
VardaValar1: Gimli is the one in longest probably, on server Juyo, I think he said.
VardaValar1: Sauron is on Rubat Crystal, E. Coast RP server.
VardaValar1: They're close friends in rl, and would probably be willing to jump servers to be together.
VardaValar1: In any new game, try to make channel Valar to find each other. :-)
VardaValar1: Gorlim has been ill with bronchitis, headache, but is getting better now.
VardaValar1: Annael had complications with surgery leaving one hand not functioning due to nerve damage, but they are going back in to scrape bone scars so he should have a normal hand again in the future and be back to normal gaming.
VardaValar1: Celeborn is trying to set up to buy a new computer, as he's facing a lot of lag problems.
ArPharazonV: Oh, that's good. And it sounds rather painful.
ArPharazonV: Annael, that is. Though buying a new pc can be painful too.
VardaValar1: Agreed, both, heh.
VardaValar1: Eowyn is doing very well after surgery and I saw her dancing on a videophone. She looks great. :-)
karakedi25: Indis also has a new laptop, very powerful, top of the line for gaming. :-D
VardaValar1: Huzzah!
karakedi25: and nice for Eowyn.
VardaValar1: Have you seen a lot of difference in lag?
karakedi25: Much faster loading times, no lag!
VardaValar1: Woot!
karakedi25: playing on it now-it's better than my desktop, too
VardaValar1: Christmas has been good to the guild, in the gaming department. :-)
VardaValar1: Any other membership news?

VardaValar1: Web:
VardaValar1: We all need to remember that in other rp groups, they make a bio for their character. Here, we look up original info on our character from Tolkien's books and make a bio from that, helping us play our parts better. At least see that something is in our site for your character, such as an article, poem, art, music, humor.
VardaValar1: Be represented. :-)
Eonwe Valar has entered the room.
Eonwe Valar: Heya. Sorry for being late, had some connection issues.
VardaValar1: Welcome Eonwe! Saw you falling out a few times
VardaValar1: We're in Web. I'm shamelessly soliciting articles. :-)
Eonwe Valar: :}
karakedi25: Ok, I have to leave now :-( . May be able to stay in touch by phone with Varda, especially for RP discussion.
karakedi25: Namarie for now
VardaValar1: Namarie Indis :-)

VardaValar1: Gaming:
karakedi25 has left the room.
VardaValar1: Lots of folks have picked up new games thanks to Christmas. :-)
VardaValar1: Anyone here want to mention new games they have? Sauron has SW:ToR.
ArPharazonV: Not me. No new games. I was thinking of picking up Skyrim but wouldn't play it much, still too into WoW.
AriehnV: i mentioned War in the North last week :-)
AriehnV: finished the easy version yesterday
AriehnV: i got Rift as well for chrismas but i havent looked into it yet ^^
VardaValar1: Grats on getting through the easy version already. :-)
AriehnV: I was a bit curious about War in the North and wanted to get a better idea of the story and gameplay before the meeting today so i was a bit rarer in WoW and LotrO than normal
AriehnV: and thanks :-)
VardaValar1: Thanks for coming in at all when a new game is sending a siren call. : )
AriehnV: hehe

VardaValar1: WoW:
VardaValar1: Eonwe, did you have a report handy?
Eonwe Valar: Sure, pretty easy ,hehe.
Eonwe Valar: Lothar:
Eonwe Valar: Last Sunday was the first, so it was a free day :}
Eonwe Valar: This Friday I couldn't make it in for run time, but it looked like Varda, Fangorn, Eowyn, Sauron, and Glorfindel had run a dungeon or two.
Eonwe Valar: Today, if we have enough, we'll hit Obsidian Sanctum to pick up another black drake for some lucky guild member, and then see if we can pick up where we left off in ICC.
Eonwe Valar: That concludes my report :}
VardaValar1: Thanks Eonwe :-)
VardaValar1: That WoW Friday we went completely through all wings of Dire Maul.
VardaValar1: The two high levels hadn't been there since the expansion so they got something out of it too. : )
VardaValar1: Glorfindel and Sauron were our big guys, helping out Eowyn, Fangorn, and Varda's little guys that needed Dire Maul. We got a ton of rep and had to switch tabards. : )
AriehnV: nice grats
VardaValar1: Thanks
VardaValar1: Anything else needing mentioned in WoW, such as patches or festivities? Darkmoon Faire is still going?
Eonwe Valar: Darkmoon Faire is over now.
ArPharazonV: I saw Fladrif come back into WoW.
Eonwe Valar: Only lasts a week, from Sunday to Sat, first full week of every month.
VardaValar1: Thanks. I was too slow this time.
VardaValar1: Fladrif? How cool :-)
ArPharazonV: Yep. 10-day trial, still maxed out at lvl 70, but he wanted to see the world :-)
ArPharazonV: So we had a daring adventure to sneak into the Twilight Highlands, among other places, where we got stuck in the ocean and on top of the Twilight Citadel at points.
VardaValar1: oops : )
VardaValar1: Sounds fun!
ArPharazonV: But it was fun :-) Just too bad the rest of the new Cataclysm zones need questlines to be entered for the first time.
ArPharazonV: Actually, I'm not sure about Uldum. Is there a way in normally?
Eonwe Valar: Just fly in.
Eonwe Valar: Or take the ground route.
ArPharazonV: No, that won't do, at lvl 70, without Cataclysm, Fladrif couldn't fly in Azeroth.
ArPharazonV: There's a ground route? Is that that caravan route?
Eonwe Valar: I believe so, but you should be able to make it in.
ArPharazonV: Might give it a try then.
Eonwe Valar: I don't recall exactly where the entry point is from the ground, as it's been a long while since I used it.
ArPharazonV: I've got some ideas, so we'll have to test it, if Fladrif's up for it.
AriehnV: that sounds awesome to have the ent back :-D
ArPharazonV: Also, expansion prices have been permanently lowered since a few days ago. So if you don't have them yet, pick em up now!
AriehnV: maybe the old storyteller and flyaway Elf can be stirred up again as well ,.. I mean Valandil
AriehnV: but .. hey .. we ll see about that
VardaValar1: I'd like to know if Valandil is still with us for the Membership page.
VardaValar1: Maybe he could tell a story or two for the Tolkien Site? : )

VardaValar1: In other gaming news, Eonwe, before you made it in, we were talking about Star Wars: The Old Republic. Some of the gang have the game or are considering playing it and we need to pick a server before we scatter too badly.
VardaValar1: Gimli is on Juyo, Sauron is on Rubat Crystal (rp server).
Eonwe Valar: Aye, those playing should pick a common server if they want to be able to get together.
VardaValar1: We have to suggest one as official before we scatter too far. Let them be able to bring their friends to ours instead of always the reverse. We lost a lot in WoW from that.
Eonwe Valar: Make sure to tell me if you're playing SW:TOR for the Games Site too.
VardaValar1: Eonwe, have you been hearing about members heading into SW:ToR for the GSMU?
Eonwe Valar: I don't recall off the top of my head, as it was 3 months ago.
VardaValar1: It may be too new for it have been caught for the GSMU.
VardaValar1: Ok, thanks.

VardaValar1: LotRO
VardaValar1: This is still our main game, as befits a Tolkien fan club. : )
Eonwe Valar: Actually, looks like Thror was eying it. [note SW:ToR]
VardaValar1: It continues to add more and they have told us from early on that they plan to take it the whole way the Fellowship went, into Mordor, and on to other places like Harad.
VardaValar1: Already we see side places like the battles the elves of Lothlorien had.
VardaValar1: Anyway, our scheduled times are starting back up again after the holiday break.
VardaValar1: We need to learn to hit our fellowship maneuvers quickly and accurately.
VardaValar1: We are now assigning positions instead of colors so that we can switch fm's quickly.
VardaValar1: This helps a ton in places like Draigoch's Lair, and we'll need it if we pug also.
VardaValar1: Saturday 12-mans started up again with a bang.
VardaValar1: Backing up for a proper report *cough*
VardaValar1: Pippin can't make it to Monday and Wednesdays for quite some time because his work schedule now hits right there, but he can come Saturdays.
VardaValar1: Monday we completed Sammath Gul of Dol Guldur as a 6-man, blowing through it faster than we ever have before.
VardaValar1: We helped two kinfolk finish up their book Epilogue there.
VardaValar1: Wednesday we did 3-mans:
VardaValar1: The new Fangorn's Edge in Isengard was completed, then the School and then the Library.
VardaValar1: After that we gave the new Foundry 6-man a shot, but ran into some problems, the worst being that people ran out of time. That's the toughest one!
VardaValar1: Friday we had a report on some of the unscheduled runs that go on all the time.
VardaValar1: Fangorn's Edge was completed. Others hit were The Pit (Ironarm Wing) and Dargnakh Unleashed. Dargnakh is a big ol' mean troll.
VardaValar1: For the Saturday 12-man, we decided to ramp it up a bit.
VardaValar1: We did our first set-up of the by the numbers Fellowship Maneurvers, needs practice but it looks like the way to go for sure.
VardaValar1: We did the harder mode Tier 2 for Breaching the Necromancer's Gate and were pleased at how well we zoomed through it.
VardaValar1: Battle of the Tower tier 2 had more problems, not the least that people had to leave and we kept substituting in, but it was noticeably harder. A challenge. : )
VardaValar1: End LotRO report.
VardaValar1: Any further comments, suggestions for gaming or business?

VardaValar1: Tolkien:
VardaValar1: First up, how are we set on starting up the next part of the forum story? We call it the RP, a bit of a misnomer, but you know what we meant.
VardaValar1: We have a thread ready to go?
ArPharazonV: Did we decide on what we want to cover in Rivendell?
VardaValar1: We need to know what we would be researching. Elrond could help point us in the right direction.
Eonwe Valar: We know we need to cover our characters' motivations for continuing. We ought to deal with the orc-sword in some manner. Mention of the goal in Angmar should probably be made so readers remember what it was we said we were going to be doing there.
VardaValar1: He could use clues like our scouting report of what we saw, info on what the possessed was like in personality and what he was doing, and his condition generally when possessed.
VardaValar1: Are we in danger of being possessed too.
VardaValar1: The orc sword rune stuff needs to be a clue, or it should not have been mentioned.
VardaValar1: We can get creative if need be for the sword. : )
ArPharazonV: We'd probably need to be. I can't see how the possession and the sword could be related.
Eonwe Valar: Compiling the defined properties of the sword from the story so far might help give us ideas.
VardaValar1: Remember the sword could make elves uneasy as it tried to influence them, made the dwarf have the normal dwarven desire of possession that is their racial thingy, so it has power. How did this help the orc/goblin that had it?
VardaValar1: or help control him?
VardaValar1: That might be a touch of possession, not the whole enchilada.
ArPharazonV: If I remember right we pinned it down to a communication device, or a tracking device. But a form of control, ensuring loyalty, might be an interesting twist.
ArPharazonV: Even if we don't know it, Elrond might recognize that.
VardaValar1: We did mention the forced obedience angle earlier, that would be how an early form of possession might be included. Some clue there.
VardaValar1: Aye, Elrond needs to help us take our clues and figure what we need to do in Angmar.
VardaValar1: Send Meren into the library for a Eureka, I found it moment. : )
VardaValar1: We might even have a side quest to find out some nugget of info on the way towards Angmar. Make the journey more interesting.
AriehnV: Nugget ..: sounds a task for a dwarf
VardaValar1: hehe
VardaValar1: Possibly. It might be something that needs a dwarf's skills, as we would be out in the mountains and rocks, not exactly elven territory.
VardaValar1: Get Meren to it so she can find the information needed. Or the widget needed to do the plan, whatever it is.

VardaValar1: If no one has a comment, we can move on to a Tolkien topic that Arien suggested.
AriehnV: if you are up to it or too keen on bed or lunches or dinnesrs :-)?
ArPharazonV: I don't mind a topic :-)
VardaValar1: Only 5:42 my time. 6:42 Eastern. : )
VardaValar1: If there is no further rp discussion...?
Eonwe Valar: I have nothign for the moment.
VardaValar1: Arien, go ahead.
Eonwe Valar: Don't forget that you can use the discussio nthread during the week to throw out ideas, discuss them, etc.
AriehnV: right then .. as i mentioned before i ve been playing War in the North in the last few days , and since Eonwe was asking last week about how true to Tolkien the game is i wondered whether we could look into that
AriehnV: so i ll mention the story elements or some events in the game and you discuss or tell me whether it goes along with what Tolkien created or with information he provided
Eonwe Valar: So,.. Warning: Spoilers! :}
AriehnV: yes its that
AriehnV: a bit anyway
Eonwe Valar: Now anyone reading this on the News page knows not to press on if they don't want the War in the North story ruined, hehe.
AriehnV: aye lol
AriehnV: so then .. the starts in bree maybe three or four days before the Hobbits arrive there
AriehnV: Elf , Dwarf and Man (Loremaster, Champion and Ranger) meet Aragorn and report about an attack of the nine on the ranger guard at Sarn Ford which was overwhelmed
AriehnV: the story is about parallel with the events in the book so keep that in mind
AriehnV: Now then what do we know about the guard that the Dunedain kept on the shire ?
Eonwe Valar: It probably didn't include Elves and Dwarves :}
AriehnV: *giggles * unfortunately the game doesnt explain how they actually ended up there from Rivendell and Erebor respictively
AriehnV: that would make an interesting story for itself
AriehnV: Possile tho if the Loremaster was visiting the Elves in Mirkwood and the Dwarf travelling to dale maybe or dealing with the Elves as well and got somehow distracted
ArPharazonV: I don't really seeing them having much of a military hierarchy complete with administration and reports, anyway. While word would get around, and they might call on each other for help, ranger posts were probably independent units.
Eonwe Valar: There was Dwarf traffic between Erebor and the Blue Mountains, but I got the impression that most Elves heading to the Havens west through the Shire didn't head east again.
ArPharazonV: While them reporting to Aragorn what happened at the Ford would not be too farfetched, it seems a bit rigid.
ArPharazonV: am I making any sense?
AriehnV: how do you mean rigid?
Eonwe Valar: Elves and Dwarves aren't under Aragorn's command structure, to put it one way.
ArPharazonV: Well obviously my view is a bit skewed with the little information you gave, but I had this image in my head of these 3 people reporting to Aragorn's office and giving an official report on the doings at Sarn Ford.
AriehnV: Eradan for sure was aye, the others might have accompanied him for protection
AriehnV: he is the Ranger
AriehnV: but i do see your point
ArPharazonV: Allright, sure. But what is his background here then? Does he work directly under Aragorn and did the message just arrive? Or was he at the Ford and dispatched as a messenger when the attack happened?
ArPharazonV: The latter seems more likely, anyway, because of the militaristic idea of the former, as I said.
AriehnV: the force at Sarn was under the command of Halbarad but he survived with a handful of other rangers
AriehnV: i didnt have the impression that Eradan was actually there but came there a bit after the attack and dispatched as messenger all right
AriehnV: Eradan himself works mainly as scout and tracker
AriehnV: but he belongs to Halbarads troops allright and as such would reporlt to Aragorn as his chieftain
ArPharazonV: Well, of course we'd need more information about how the Rangers operated. But I guess that works.
ArPharazonV: So it is the idea of several groups of rangers under commanders such as Halbarad, who all answer/report to Aragorn?
AriehnV: so it seems aye
VardaValar1: We know that Elladan and Elrohir rode with the rangers to take the opportunities offered to kill orcs in revenge for Celebrian.
VardaValar1: Several groups of rangers around the Shire at stations, reporting in to the Chieftain, Aragorn, makes sense, aye.
VardaValar1: This is pretty much the only territory of civilization in Anor and is loyal to the King, even having a saying that everything will be made right "when the King returns".
ArPharazonV: I can see Aragorn now in some office, looking over maps, making plans for ranger units A, B and C to be stationed here, here, and here.
AriehnV: :-)
VardaValar1: Aye, and we know he met with rangers at Rivendell.
AriehnV: and they used the Prancing Pony as gathering place as well or a place to warm up and to resupply
VardaValar1: I wonder what they did when the huorns attacked the Shire and the hobbits fought back with fire? Mostly stand back in case they were needed?
VardaValar1: Aye, rangers were seen regularly, including Aragorn known by sight, at the Prancing Pony.
AriehnV: i dont know but interest comment on Elladan and Elrohir there Varda
AriehnV: because we meet them in the game
ArPharazonV: I wonder if they had more permanent, Ranger-controlled, meeting places in the woods around.
VardaValar1: We know for sure the Rangers were guarding the Shire against a lot, things that would freeze Barliman's blood.
ArPharazonV: Sorry, Arien, did you mention earlier where this first report took place? Was it in the Pony?
AriehnV: yes in the Pony#
VardaValar1: (Suppose we might find some of those scary things came from the place in Angband where our RP group is going? : )
VardaValar1: The Pony would make sense in the lore.
VardaValar1: Angmar, heh
AriehnV: interesting and hanger for the game is that after the rout our three heroes actually watch a meeting between the Witch King and a man called Agandaur
AriehnV: which makes clear that Agandaur is a very powerful servant of the Dark Lord
AriehnV: and it gets clear that Agandaur gathers a force of goblins and orcs in long abandoned Fornost
AriehnV: so the first quest actually is to follow Agandaur there and distract tthose said Mordor troops
AriehnV: and turns out Elladan and Elrohir might be there too so they can work together
ArPharazonV: Mordor troops. From where?
AriehnV: well i mean Orcs from all over the north centred in one place under the command of Agandaur , i.e. de facto Sauron
ArPharazonV: Allright. Drawn together from Eriador?
AriehnV: yup
ArPharazonV: Allright, continue :-)
AriehnV: during their quest our Friends find various Dunedain artefacts which could be forged into a powerful weapon by a knowing smith
AriehnV: and some sorcerer scrolls
AriehnV: which have to be taken to someone who might know about how to read them ..
AriehnV: that sounds somehow familiar doesnt it :-)?
VardaValar1: hehe
ArPharazonV: So you went to Elrond? ;-)
VardaValar1: Is this scholar Meren? : )
VardaValar1: Frali can be our smith in the field!
AriehnV: eventually , after being distraciton enough , phara hehe
AriehnV: :D#
AriehnV: :-D
AriehnV: well first we have to free one of the great Eagles of Gwaihirs people who was shot down by siege machines and held captive by the orcs
AriehnV: Beleram is his name patrolling the area and noticing the movement in Fornost
AriehnV: how likely?
VardaValar1: (We had a version of a great eagle in our rp, a smaller type.)
AriehnV: a small great eagle then ^^
VardaValar1: hehe
VardaValar1: But the eagles do patrol around, eyes of Manwe. And they do their own lives in the mountains.
VardaValar1: So if mountains are nearby, big ones, we might see the Great Eagles.
ArPharazonV: Patrolling, perhaps, to secure their own habitat.
VardaValar1: and in the Hobbit, they mention hunting, and perhaps taking the occasional sheep. : )
AriehnV: Fornosto is north of the shire isnt it
AriehnV: it was abandoned after the fall of Arthedain and their last king and was known to common folks as Deadmans Dike
AriehnV: so maybe not high mountains as the Misty Mountains or Grey Mountains but more hilly and gentler?
VardaValar1: TJ-(T) made this map, still online. Scroll down a bit:
ArPharazonV: North Downs.
ArPharazonV: High enough for eagles?
VardaValar1: Good question. At least it's not flat. : )
VardaValar1: Eagles picked up Gandalf and Thorin's Company since they were with him when they were in danger from the forest fire.
VardaValar1: Trying to think exactly where that was
AriehnV: hmm they were in Mirkwood in the trees .. out of the fire into the frying pan?
AriehnV: i remember them sitting in trees just above the goblin camp when they were discovered
galdorandwe has entered the room.
galdorandwe: Better late than never...aiya
AriehnV: heya Galdor :-) the later the evening the more beautiful the guests :-)
VardaValar1: (This map shows the High Pass where the road goes into the mountains, in answer to last week's question.)
VardaValar1: Aiya Galdor :-)
VardaValar1: Is it the wine, Arien? ;-)
VardaValar1: Ok, so that was too far east. And near much higher mountains.
VardaValar1: Galdor, that's a map made by a member, TJ-(T).
galdorandwe: Are you referring to my question from the previous week, Varda?
AriehnV: Fornost seems to be in the middle between the blue mountains and the Misty Mountains
VardaValar1: Yes
AriehnV: an eagle patrolling between both would make sense
galdorandwe: What was at the western most part of the the King's Rod where it runs into the mountains? It's NOT the high pass, so what's there?
VardaValar1: That''s a long flight.
ArPharazonV: Patrolling for what purpose, so far from either mountain range? As eyes for Manwe? Or simply to travel from one range to another, and happening upon doings in Fornost?
AriehnV: seemed more a random spotting of the activity in Fornost in the game
VardaValar1: I don't know, Galdor.
ArPharazonV: That sounds reasonable. Eagle flies from Misty Mountains to Blue Mountains or other way around, maybe again as some form of communication or migration, and happens to fly over Fornost, spotting activity and getting taken down by a siege weapon.
galdorandwe: Eonwe is here..perhaps he'd like to weigh in on what's there?
Eonwe Valar: There is a pass further south of the High Pass that follows the great east-west road, but it tended to be dangerous to travel.
Eonwe Valar: Dangerous because of orcs, not because of geography.
VardaValar1: Any idea what the road was originally intended to go to?
Eonwe Valar: As I recall, somewhere in HoME it was thought to be the path taken by the Elves from Cuivienen to the Sea.
AriehnV: hmm how did that question come up?
AriehnV: its getting late anyway ..and i keep you from your WoW run :-)
galdorandwe: ok. I need to run.....have agreat night all
galdorandwe: Namarie'
Eonwe Valar: Sleep well Galdor.
galdorandwe: Oh I'm not sleeping..just can't chat and game at the same chewing gum and walking :-)
ArPharazonV: Namarie!
AriehnV: Namarie Galdor :-)
Eonwe Valar: hehe
galdorandwe has left the room.
AriehnV: "soflty lights up the stage and uses solar power to move the lever to open the door leading to the gavel"
VardaValar1: Namarie
VardaValar1: The question came up last week from Galdor.
VardaValar1: Love using solar power to handle the gavel!
VardaValar1: *whomp!*

VardaValar1: Time to let the WoW people go clobber things. : )
ArPharazonV: Where are you going this time?
AriehnV: hehe thanks folks for playing along and chipping in
VardaValar1: Thanks for the fun. : )
VardaValar1: Another shot at getting the black drake for more people, then ICC. Maybe.
VardaValar1: Fangorn is doing random dungeons atm, so we might jump in with him. We'll see what happens. : )
VardaValar1: Bilbo is home. : )
AriehnV: :-D
VardaValar1: Sauron got delegated to broil the chicken the rest of the way. Teach him to be a fiery eye.
AriehnV: say hello to him from me
VardaValar1: Fangorn and Bilbo said Hello Arien : )
ArPharazonV: By the way, Darkmoon Faire to exalted yesterday.
ArPharazonV: Just Ravenholdt and then I'll have the Insane title :-)
AriehnV: nice one
Eonwe Valar: Is there even a way to get exalted with Ravenholdt?
AriehnV: working on the next delivery pfft
