Thread: Notes for the Quest for the Straight Road - READ FIRST
<<                   >>
I had hoped Aelric would be back to take over his character again before we reach the island but if not......... lots of beasties to slay. Aelric suggests the beasties hunting orc are from before Sauron - evil nasty beasties. We need to research what sort there were at that time maybe.
There is really no need to 'be' or play a caracter, I wrote a lot for the "let's write a story together planet-tolkien" without having a caracter and it was great fun and a great challenge! This is generation two of PT-story making, still open for anyone who wants to write, but notes and story are separated (which they weren't in 'Let's write') and a mod is monitoring to make sure things adds up (in Let's write we came to the same mountain three times and one caracter changed gender and race several times because of misunderstandings.) Allyssa and I agreed on the rules when she started this story.
It is good to have neutral writers, because we get so involved in the people we create that the others are forgotten, and others may see things about them we don't. But if you want to create or adopt a caracter that will be ok too, of course.
And you ARE power mad, my girl!
And we aren't going to kill Roth yet, right? (Not that I have any problems with that. Oh boy - so so bad, Nil! Quit talking like that! You have a Council member here! )
Did my last post make any sense at all?? I wrote it at like 1AM my time and it just popped out and I let it.
I know we don't do Aragorn justice, not at all, not even close, hope Tolkien can forgive us. He shouldn't have been added in the first place at all, but he was.. And if he leaves he will have to take with him some of our precious caracters, oh no! Aaaargh, that is why we need Allyssa!! COME BACK ALLYSSA!!! Help us make the right choises! *looking towards Australia with big puppy-eyes*
Oooooh the pendant! Nice! What about Amas precious brooch, I'm sure she has it on her somewhere, will it have any effect? It isn't a weapon, and it has any powers it would be 'nice' powers I guess. Not sure if there are more healers in Amas family, at least not her parents but maybe grandma or something? I don't know, I'm going back to bed, tired.
And where did Moonstar (and everybody else) go?
And that is for everyone here doing exams. Sorry if I am impatient but I forget that some of you have exams at this time of year.
BUT - if you need a break from studying.......
Maybe someone will have to die in order to save the others........
Also, if the demon tries to corrupt Aelric, knowing him for a former servant of Sauron, we will see which side Aelric takes.
By the way, love your latest post, Vee!! Gives the first really clear look at what the spirit thing is. He wants to hurt Nil, though - bad, bad spirit! I'll try to post something as soon as I can.
As for the creatures, I hated that film but the shadow things were cool Doesn't seem very Tolkien though. What about a Wraith of sorts? I like Dragons but they are so passe dahlinks. Whatever they are, somewhere has to be something with the intelligence and/or cunning to control them and something that at least knows the Gem is powerful. Dunno.
And Nil, we spotted land two days ago and you have been asleep!!! We are all anxious to get ashore!
We could send out a reccie. Lay of the land and all that.
Star Trek reference.... hehehehehe!
And she might want to mention that he is is not dying and not so fragile as she was shouting he was while Aelric was beating him. It was just so the men would think Aelric was even more brutal that he was.
Me back, BAD BRUTAL AND BELLIGIRENT! Not me per se, the character - Aelric!
What have you done? Oh woe is me! All IS LOST ALL is LOST!
So i suppose i better post something today, just that i gotta catch up on so much stuff thats happened, and i imagine you've all had a hand in mutating my character into some chaos warrior, metal music luvvin god of EVIL!
And btw i was 31 years young yesterday, a pretty nuffink kinda year to celebrate. But an excuse to drink n be merry.
Sorry about Aelric - we just can't be evil enough can we? At least he can sing.
ok ok ok ... its time for Aelric to kick some bottom methinks. Is Roth dead yet? lol
I'll try to keep my end up though.
Going swimming in full armour isn't all that clever. Maybe he will loose his sword, he must realize now that the sword is a bit unhealthy for him now?
Oooooooh it's getting dark.....
ok, i don't know if i would be able to add things myself do to the fact that i don't have access to a computer all the time but if you guys wanted to take control of my character that would be alright with me.
first i have a question. did Manwe and Varda have any children? if so what were there names?
so here is my character:
her name is Daria daughter of Almatari Celebisilwen(that's a soft c not a hard c) who was an Eldar and her father was Adam son of Manwe and Varda. the fellowship meet her when they get to the island; things happen........
(Almatari was very powerful. she got her powers from her mother whom is a handmaiden of Varda in Valinor. Daria has never met her father or grandparents, nor has she ever been to Valinor. she was born on the island and raised there. her mother was born in Valinor but left when she became pregnant with Daria. which was seven years after Earendil and Elwing landed on Valinor; and she returned there five months before the war of the ring started. neither Almatari or Daria have seen Adam in his physical form. Almatari recieved a necklace from her father whan she was three years old and before she left for Valinor she gave it to Daria.)
If you guys have any idea what the necklace should be let me know and you can add it. If you have anything else to add let me know and add it.
well there's my idea, i hope you like it.
Anyone any ideas? Nil knows more about the island than I do.
I can't see how we can place another elf there without it being contrived. Also, another extremely powerful elf would be in competition (story wise) for Nil.
Oooooooh.. I want more people posting here but it would be good if someone were willing to take over responsibility (if that is the word) for one of the other characters (anyone out there interested?).
So how do we fit this new character in? Does Allyssa have any thoughts?
Thats my next character... lol
Such a powerful elf could just say. "Oh yes the Gem, here I'll fetch it for you."
The Numenoreans are gonna go nuts if we come with yet another elf, no ride back for us that is for sure! But a runaway human slave perhaps? Maybe the orcs brought some slaves with them to the island. She would hide for the Black Numenorians, but a bunch of free elves arriving would be like a gift from the gods for her, hope of getting off this dreadful island. Nilgaerien knows the island like it was, maybe Daria can show the way to secret hideouts where the shadow can't find them?
I wasn't suppose to post any of this, but I suddenly realized that I never made AmariŽ a half-elf, so she can't choose to be human can she? Hmmm... She could decide to stay with him, but he will age and then die and they will be separated for ever. At least they had some time togheter, maybe some kids too? Little Arkantos jr. Awww.... Anyway, it is about time she puts two and two together and finds out soon don't you think? Now that she knows the twins are alright and waiting for them, she has time to think about other things.
Wouldn't it make more sense if the Mother Shadow-spirit-thingie was on the island and baby-shadow was in the sword? Such a big powerful thing wouldn't have much trouble to take controll over Aelric, and it needs dark powers to do it's stuff. And if the shadow is the source of evil on the island... I don't know, got to get back to the books.

Actually its like a Dark reunion, Amarie, there are a lot of things i've only hinted at in regard to the Sword and its nature and the identity of the Spirit. It being obvious now that its a vestigal part of Thuringwethil's dark soul. And in answer to your notion of how easy it would be for it to take complete control of a Aelric, well i'll refer you to the time's on land when it has suited it to take some control, if only to keep alive its vessel and means of transport - its power is stronger over land, NOT sea, now that its so close to its ultimate goal - it has dispensed with subterfuge/stealth and now is the dominant consciousness in the Aelric corporeal vessel. That is not to say that it has TOTAL control, but it may as well be just now.
the shadow creatures is that they are 'children' of the sword wraith who was Thrangywhatsit the vampire
I have been seeing the sword as being a bit like the Ring, created by the dark lord to make sure Aelric didn't stay out of trouble, creating as much evil as it could through him. And it wanted to go to the island knowing it would start a war (against the elves and men the Dark Lord hated) if Aelric took the Gem. Not part of the Dark Lord like the Ring was, but depending on evil powers to work.
Then it got a thinking, self-aware, mighly vampire spirit inside it with some spirit kids on the island, and I found it odd that she wasn't strong enough on her own, but needed to feed from an evil source. But it if is just a part of her, then it makes sense.
Gonna be interesting!
