Chat History for Valar Guild Meetingplace
Saturday, October 14, 2017
Ar-Pharazon-V (22:13:18):    I wonder how many level 1 gnomes have been / will be created all over the world today.
Ar-Pharazon-V (22:14:00):    Personally I took my 26 gnomette warlock through the race, but saw quite a few level 2s and 3s at the finish line, fresly made for the race.

Varda Valar (23:04:05):    Pardon the slowness. Frodo and Melilot returned to LotRO, got to chatting and the time snuck up!
Varda Valar (23:04:22):    Hamson's been around a good bit too. :)

Varda Valar (23:04:56):    Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo!

Varda Valar (23:05:37):    Welcome back from the army to Frodo and Melilot. Enjoy some University time!
Varda Valar (23:06:04):    Hamson had a few days off duriing Fall Break and a couple days off work, so he's been playing hard too. :)
Varda Valar (23:06:19):    All's well here. Any other membership news?
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:06:27):    I hope Frodo didn't get any nasty scars while away.
Arien V (23:08:23):    ah i ve seen some names i wasnt familiar with ^^ I wonderered
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:09:00):    dagger in the shoulder, that kinda stuff.
Varda Valar (23:10:44):    Notes help :)
Varda Valar (23:10:51):    Melilot is now in our Discord server :)
Arien V (23:10:58):    indeed they do :)
Varda Valar (23:12:07):    I didn't ask an Army guy about his scars, Morgul daggers, etc. :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:12:28):    hehe, fair enough
Varda Valar (23:14:08):    I'll be glad when we all settle in one place. Getting interesting relaying in so many directions.

Varda Valar (23:14:22):    Web:
Varda Valar (23:14:50):    People have been responding to Eonwe's GSMU mail, those that can. Some folks we don't have a current email for.
Varda Valar (23:15:17):    Feel free to email Eonwe or me, or post to the forum, or come to a meeting. :)
Varda Valar (23:16:58):    On the Anniversary page, we now have a new art header with emailed permission from the Bohemian Weasel-(T), one you've seen before but used in a new way here. :)
Varda Valar (23:17:28):    The Anniversary page also has new screenshots since last Sunday, from
Varda Valar (23:17:49):    Arien for the theme in WoW
Varda Valar (23:18:14):    and fireworks screenies from Miriel and from Lenwe. :)
Varda Valar (23:18:33):

Varda Valar (23:19:52):    Some bad links on Arien's Article Author's page have been fixed. They happened when stuff was rearranged to make it either under Tolkien or under Guild, simplifying the files a little.
Varda Valar (23:20:21):    Please check your stuff and email me if your links are broken to help find the mess-ups.
Varda Valar (23:24:16):    Also, on the Anniversary page, I added in a batch of info from
Varda Valar (23:24:32):    the GSMU to help the Membership page, which is now updated from it.
Arien V (23:24:38):    i love that Smaug picture :)
Varda Valar (23:24:47):    Anyone responding to the GSMU has extra credit with me!
Varda Valar (23:24:50):    Aye ;)
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:26:48):    Does me occasionally spotting Fladrif in Hearthstone count for the second list?
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:27:01):    Last online 3 days ago!
Varda Valar (23:28:27):    yay, thanks!

Varda Valar (23:28:32):    Gaming:
Varda Valar (23:28:45):    Eonwe has the general Games Report for us. Fire when ready!
Eonwe Valar (23:28:50):    Thanks :}

Eonwe Valar (23:29:05):    World of Warcraft:
Eonwe Valar (23:29:21):    There are hotfixes to see.

Eonwe Valar (23:29:31):    Diablo 3:
Eonwe Valar (23:29:45):    See the first look at Patch 2.6.1.

Varda Valar (23:33:59):    Thank you, Eonwe. We appreciate your hard work!
Varda Valar (23:34:48):    Any further business, suggestions, gripes, comments, kudos?
Arien V (23:35:13):    thanks Eonwe :)
Varda Valar (23:35:28):    ./cheer
Eonwe Valar (23:35:30):    :}

Varda Valar (23:35:36):    Tolkien:
Varda Valar (23:36:08):    I was amused at some of the odd juxtapositions our characters in gaming have with Tolkien's storyline
Varda Valar (23:37:48):    For instance, the married pair that came online today use the guild characters of Frodo and Melilot. Why would that couple raise a few eyebrows in the Shire, despite both being Hobbits?
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:40:20):    Well I'm sure there's a familial relation between them, though extended enough perhaps not to matter much, not sure on the detail... also a bit of an age difference, wasn't there?
Eonwe Valar (23:41:01):
Eonwe Valar (23:41:22):    Not much to go on there, except she was a guest at Bilbo's farewell party, and that she's a Brandybuck.
Varda Valar (23:41:26):    Both were Brandybucks, aye
Varda Valar (23:42:15):    Aye, I believe she was a fair bit younger than Frodo.
Varda Valar (23:42:45):    Gil-Galad-Today at 4:41 PM [Discord copy/paste]
Well, they are distant cousins, but I have no idea how the hobbits see that. She's also almost 20 years younger than Frodo, but again, no idea how that is seen in Hobbit society
Varda Valar (23:43:23):    Any other interesting groupings of real life people in the Valar Guild, when thinking of them as their Middle-earth characters?
Eonwe Valar (23:43:44):    Oromë and Melkor come to mind quickly, hehe.
Varda Valar (23:43:49):    hehe
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:43:55):    Well, I'm good friends with Fladrif, Numenorean and an ent :)
Varda Valar (23:44:25):    Bilbo, Sauron, and Eowyn are siblings. :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:44:32):    Shipbuilder and treeshepherd.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:45:05):    Aragorn's got an eagle for a stepfather? ;)
Varda Valar (23:45:10):    He might be picking your planks
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:45:17):    Ah yes, perhaps!
Eonwe Valar (23:45:44):    Does Varda and Fangorn count? ;} A tree-creature drawn to the creator of Light seems fitting, hehe :}
Varda Valar (23:45:54):    There you go
Varda Valar (23:46:44):    Gil-Galad-Today at 4:45 PM
Well, I have no partner know in Middle Earth, so there's that
Eonwe Valar (23:47:47):    Alatar and Gaffer. Sure, the relative ages are right (Alatar would be the older) but the younger real life person is an old man in Tolkien's works :}
Varda Valar (23:47:48):    (In Discord chatting atm are Arien, Gil-galad, Gorlim, and Varda. Melilot and Frodo had to leave.
Eonwe Valar (23:49:14):    (Gaffer --> Alatar's son)
Varda Valar (23:50:32):    Some make sense. Eowyn is married to Faramir.
Varda Valar (23:51:16):    Melkor is always fun:
Varda Valar (23:51:22):    Father of Orome and Angrod. Grandfather of Falathar, Rose Cotton, and William.
Eonwe Valar (23:51:31):    Afk for a moment.
Varda Valar (23:51:34):    That's William the Troll
Varda Valar (23:51:51):    Finally came back around to baddies in the third generation
Varda Valar (23:53:11):    Meriadoc and Varda are siblings.
Arien V (23:53:25):    what how?
Arien V (23:53:48):    oh right .. Meriadoc is your Brother :)]
Varda Valar (23:53:50):    Sorry, which what how? :)
Varda Valar (23:53:52):    Right!
Varda Valar (23:53:56):    I'll claim that hobbit!
Arien V (23:54:09):    hehe :)
Varda Valar (23:55:52):    Aredhel and Maedhros are married
Varda Valar (23:56:36):    Arwen is real life friends with Eowyn, Sauron, Bilbo, Fangorn, and Varda.
Varda Valar (23:56:48):    So is Gimli with that mob. And Elwing.
Varda Valar (23:57:27):    Landroval and Belladonna Took are married
Varda Valar (23:58:17):    Another sane pair are Celebrian and Elrond.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:58:24):    Another eagle marrying a humanoid.
Varda Valar (23:58:42):    shortest type, too!
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:58:48):    Yep!
Monday, October 16, 2017
Varda Valar (00:03:50):    Lenwe, Erkenbrand, and Marigold are siblings.
Varda Valar (00:05:27):    (Updated Fladrif on the Membership page)
Varda Valar (00:05:57):    Does anyone else have another topic? That wasn't intended to take long or be the only one.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:06:22):    (hm, refreshing the page doesn't put him there
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:06:23):    )
Varda Valar (00:07:05):    Should show 2018. I'll look, thanks for checking
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:07:29):    oh wait
Varda Valar (00:07:31):    Yep on the right hand side. shows he's good for 2018
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:07:35):    I thought you meant the anniversary page :D
Varda Valar (00:07:55):    That was for people Eonwe could verify personally since they didn't email.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:08:07):    Ahh, personally.
Varda Valar (00:08:24):    Like checking into games he can see for guild mates.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:08:25):    I thought it was people who were gaming despite not emaling.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:08:28):    *emailing
Varda Valar (00:08:47):    *verifiable* by Eonwe, is what that list was.
Varda Valar (00:09:08):    The Membership page is what I handle, so that's done.
Varda Valar (00:09:36):    If he says verified (poke him), then I can add it there.
Varda Valar (00:09:43):    It's his report. :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:10:18):    Sure, I'll withdraw from that situation then :)
Varda Valar (00:10:46):    No worries. He's updated on the Membership page for next year, the main use of that list on the Anniversary page.
Varda Valar (00:10:58):    Name protected for 2018.
Varda Valar (00:11:41):    People inactive too long might have their names handed to a new, active member if it's requested. So an email is a good idea to prevent confusion.
Varda Valar (00:12:17):    Any further comments, suggestions?

Varda Valar (00:13:58):    What sort of medical care do we know of in Middle-earth?
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:14:20):    Athelas?
Varda Valar (00:14:41):    That was for a very particular use, aye What was it?
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:15:36):    It's a weed - ehr, I mean, I think it was used by Aragorn to cure Merry of the black influence at Gondor.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:16:00):    And for other wounds caused by Morgul people.
Varda Valar (00:16:15):    Weed, hehe. That was the belief o many, aye. Pull it up and trash it.
Varda Valar (00:16:40):    Exactly. It was used versus the Black Breath, and the other versions of the Morgul illness.
Varda Valar (00:16:48):    Morgul being evil magic
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:17:08):    Sorcery being the general term.
Varda Valar (00:17:25):    There you go, aye.
Varda Valar (00:18:11):    We know Elrond pulled some interesting healing at Imladris, without Athelas.
Varda Valar (00:18:40):    Including against the morgul blade.
Varda Valar (00:19:52):    Prince Imrahil noticed that Eowyn was alive. He put polished metal by her mouth and saw the vapor from her breath form and go away. He asked if there were no leeches among them (term for medics).
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:19:57):    Do we know he didn't use Athelas?
Varda Valar (00:20:19):    We don't really know.
Varda Valar (00:21:19):    Aragorn was there. He hadn't really claimed the kingdom yet, though, so maybe it wouldn't work. Elrond refused to be called the High King of the Elves, similar problem?
Varda Valar (00:21:34):    Gil-Galad-Today at 5:20 PM
Do we really know what Elrond's healing entails though? I don't remember anything specific in the books..
Varda Valar (00:22:34):    It had to be used by the hand of a king.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:22:35):    Power of the light..
Varda Valar (00:22:53):    What light are you thinking of?
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:23:16):    Elven spirituality and connection to Valinor and the Valar?
Arien V (00:23:20):    Light of Earendil aka the Silmaril?
Arien V (00:23:29):    aka Light of the Two Trees?#
Varda Valar (00:24:35):    Are you referring to Elrond and his connection to light?
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:25:10):    Yes, pretty much.
Varda Valar (00:25:17):    Thanks.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:25:38):    While also making a crack at Warcraft holy magic, but that didn't really seem relevant enough to elaborate on.
Varda Valar (00:25:47):    I wondered. :)
Varda Valar (00:26:13):    (Was a Holy Priest in WoW, healer.)
Varda Valar (00:26:38):    There was a House of Healing in Gondor.
Arien V (00:26:46):    ((hope my Aranwe oc is not to wow-healy then :O ))
Varda Valar (00:27:03):    heh
Varda Valar (00:27:19):    Do we know anything about the House of Healing in Gondor?
Arien V (00:28:04):    there were wise woman and a master of herbs . the women looked after the patiens and the other guy .. well explains itself :)
Arien V (00:28:14):    the herbstore of course
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:28:31):    Well, it was useful for the wounded from the War of the Ring, though surely it must have contained many more than the named few we read about.
Varda Valar (00:28:49):    Seemed to have been a big place.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:28:59):    Must have been, yes!
Varda Valar (00:29:21):    We know of Ioreth, the eldest of the women who served there.
Varda Valar (00:29:57):    We know of at least one old herb-master.
Varda Valar (00:33:34):    They had many beds and rooms. Even a large wall that Faramir and Eowyn stood on to watch the lands outside.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:34:10):    A nice view seems to be helpful for healing and morale.
Varda Valar (00:34:15):    Agreed
Varda Valar (00:35:57):    I seem to remember comments about poultices, so they at least had that.
Arien V (00:36:23):    and slings and splints
Varda Valar (00:36:37):    That they commented on leeches is kind of eeky.
Arien V (00:36:38):    i remember that mentioned about Eowyns broken arm
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:36:50):    Leeches for everything!
Varda Valar (00:37:02):    Thanks, Arien
Varda Valar (00:41:15):    *A hammer bounces off the traveling conveyor belt in the gavel shelf, carrying a pile of wet, white cloths*
Varda Valar (00:41:29):    *it drops them on top of the hammerpad*
Varda Valar (00:41:38):    *Thmmmmmoooooofffffff*
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:41:38):    I wonder if there were leech farms.
Varda Valar (00:42:31):    *A muffled thump from the hammerpad. The hammer hands picks up the cloths, hands them to the chairperson, and bounces back to the shelf.*
Varda Valar (00:43:04):    May have gathered leeches from water areas and kept them in bowls, perhaps found ways to raise them in the healing areas?
Arien V (00:43:14):    .. uhm .. sort of .. glasses fillled with herbs they could feed , were taken out and set on the patients arm and let do their work . sorry .. hooray for the Outlander books :)
Varda Valar (00:43:45):    Interesting. :)
Arien V (00:44:50):    it is . sorryu its completely off topic but i know that the author, Diana Gabaldon, did put a lot of research in those books
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:45:38):    Not completely offtopic ;)
Arien V (00:45:45):    :)
Varda Valar (00:47:21):    :)
Varda Valar (00:47:24):   
Arien V.. uhm .. sort of .. glasses fillled with herbs they could feed , were taken out and set on the patients arm and let do their work . sorry .. hooray for the Outlander books
Varda Valar (00:47:31):    sorry, miscopy
Varda Valar (00:47:45):
Varda Valar (00:49:05):    JRRT would likely have seen the medics actually using leeches.
Varda Valar (00:50:00):    *puts the cloths down*

Varda Valar (00:50:05):    After-meeting!
Varda Valar (00:50:22):    Feel free to continue on the subject or grab some sleep.
Varda Valar (00:50:40):    I'll be heading to a meal downstairs. Thank you, Fangorn!
Arien V (00:51:58):    i think i should grab some sleep but first must put my rp char bed i guess :)
Varda Valar (00:52:04):    there's that. :)
Varda Valar (00:52:09):    Namarie for now!
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:52:12):    I'll start my report then, I guess!
Arien V (00:52:21):    so i ll say Namarie here for tonight :)
Varda Valar (00:52:31):    Namarie, Arien. :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:52:51):    Namarie!
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:58:33):    Perrrrrsonal gaming report!

Ar-Pharazon-V (01:00:00):    Flashgaming:
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:01:21): is the first! An old-style arcade action game with upgrades, you play a dragon engaged in a war with humans, and have to breath fire to torch your enemies and their buildings, getting money to become stronger between flights.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:05:11): is the second game, a tetris-based puzzle game where you have to fit shapes into the playing field with just the available spots.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:10:01): is the third game, a bit weird and silly and possibly originally mobile game where you go through various levels in various kingdoms to collect items as a flying unicorn.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:11:09):    There's also something about a big dragon flying through but I haven't figured out how it all works, but feel free to try it ;)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:12:43):    Am experiencing some savegame problems (this whole game does not seem to be put together flawlessly, to be honest, but hey, at least it's stylish!) but have not been able to find another location for it yet that might work better.

Ar-Pharazon-V (01:18:29):    Blizzard gaming:
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:23:32):    Heroes of the Storm: No new levels, but I did finish the golden Pachimari event, getting a new set of emojis with it. Ready for the next event!
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:36:14):    This week's brawl was 3x3 rounds of the Punisher Arena. Nothing special, but I did get the chance to revisit some of my old heroes like Valla and Lunara who I've not played since leveling them to 15. Lot of fun again!
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:52:21):    Hearthstone: Some classes moving quite close to next level, and the furthest behind are now halfway. Fun brawl, make a deck with 10 cards, discover one of 3 random cards every turn. Some ways to exploit it by messing with the opponent's deck, but personally I preferred a cheap spell casting deck with the mage.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:55:11):    WoW:
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:55:55):    Got Kil'jaeden down on the first attempt this week, so looking pretty good on that front :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:56:53):    Continuing to get pets from the old raids, this week a cute little skeleton thing from Nefarian, so now I have all Blackwing Descent pets.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:00:40):    Continuing my falcosaur quests! Done with the first of the 4 falcosaurs now, getting me a new mount, prompting me to get started on the second from Stormheim, as well unlocking the Talon's Vengeance faction.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:07:38):    To get rep with that, you need to kill other players using a special buff in special pvp world quests areas, which is not really my thing, but I did get a few, and a whole lot of others by asking friends to visit me on top of warden towers where I could kill them :) Doing that, I've gotten to friendly already... which is about 1/14th of the way!
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:07:59):    When I get to honored I can purchase an item that allows me to do the same thing in battlegrounds, which should speed things up.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:08:53):    This week's weekly is 5 pvp pet battles, which I got done easily enough. Used the leveling stone reward for one of my falcosaurs.
Ar-Pharazon-V (02:18:57):    Also participated in the Great Gnomeregan Run! Turned my level 26 gnome warlock's hair pink for the occasion and ran her from Gnomeregan to Booty Bay. Also did it later on with my main druid, but chose to fly with him instead, ducking through all the gates at lightning speed. Attempted it in first-person view, as well, which made it look like some sort of racecar (only just realized that's a palindrome!) game.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:13:02):    I took a few shots at the Guardian druid class challenge, with no success. 21 attempts later only saw me hitting phase 2 once.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:13:22):    But I did some research, and feral should be easier; I'll focus on that next time and leave guardian for later, at least until I have the Netherlight Crucible.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:14:18):    Got myself a new legendary today, the necklace Prydaz something, which is apparently really good for balance class challenge in the way future... now I have 2 more legendaries left that can drop for feral spec, including the best one *sigh*.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:15:20):    With my luck I'll get the headpiece next and the ring (the best one for feral) last, but at least that headpiece will be a unique model.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:15:41):    Lots of Broken Shore stuff!
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:16:19):    Unlocked the treasure cave, where you can spend nethershards for keys to use on random chests, which can hold more (or less) nethershards, as well as some unique goodies. Tried out a few gambles and got the pet on the second attempt!
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:16:46):    But it's better to spend nethershards on the directly bought stuff first, so that's what I'll do in the future.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:17:35):    I also took a few shots at Sentinax stuff, initially for the questline, but I'm still not sure how it works.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:18:22):    You can kill mobs under the ship, or rares all across the island, and get stones, which are used for portals... and then you can use more stones to empower those portals or something? Not sure. Or maybe get a more powerful stone from the mobs from a portal, but have not seen any of those yet.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:19:06):    But I got what I wanted there, and finished the Broken Shore questline completely, which led into another class hall questline, where I got my classmount!
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:19:25):    In druid case, that's a new flightform, Lunarwing, a large owl-like creature.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:20:06):    Not sure if I like it, might go back to the old one. You can switch by talking to an npc in the class hall. I'll try it out a bit.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:21:04):    Also in the class hall, order advancement is done; I can now use 7 champions at once, and have a chance at getting double artifact power from certain rewards.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:24:27):    And finally, I got my missing leatherworking pattern from Black Rook Hold at last. Only one from 5-man instances remaining is Vault of the Wardens, so I'll keep doing that on mythic once a week, and maybe farm on heroic later on in the expansion if it fails.
Ar-Pharazon-V (03:24:45):    And that's my news for this week!
Ar-Pharazon-V (04:06:12):    Namarie, sending transcript tomorrow. And I'll really try to get it done tomorrow :) [Note: he did and early too!]
