Thread: Notes for the Quest for the Straight Road - READ FIRST
<<                   >>
Anyway, what do you think Moonstar? You still wanna play with us? We're not so bad once you get to know us. We're quite nice really. Just very very fond of the story.
Why are Sperm Whales called such??? If i were a "sperm" whale i'd be pretty annoyed at having my brutal man-eating bulk compared to microscopic tadpole thingy - unless it was to denote the whale's excessively high virility - then i would be quite satisfied, though i would still smart at not being called a "killer" whale (the killer/orca has had no human deaths attributed to it in recorded history, yet the sperm whale of moby dick fame has claimed hundreds of human lives - all deserved in my opinion, self-defense!)
*large harpoon strikes deep into the side of the philosophising ex-whale*
PS... Moonstar - I am Bad, sowwy but I am, its genetic or contagious cant remember.
I'd love to have Moonstar join us, but without such a powerful character (but nothing at all against you, Moonstar! If I'm trying to be offensive, you'll know it. ).
Hey, does it look like Dauros is coming back anytime soon? Cause, um, well...I had an idea and Vee just keeps encouraging it and I'll be in trouble if he comes back suddenly and finds my implementing it....
I got plans for Nilgaerien, oh yessssssssssssssssss plans, evil, wicked, nasty most malevolent designs, Muahahahahahahahahahahaha!
And as for Roth, he most certainly getting his. OH YES .. no more luvvy duvviness,chatting and nattering your wittering wayz tut tut tut youz girlies , the BIG BAD IS BACK and HE GONNA UP THE ANTE ON NAUGHTINESS.
Oh and i just remembered that i'll have to be extra Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil to Amarie and Vaeltira when they try to thwart my masterplan for world domination. Oh joy of Joys!
You gotta wonder what strange little world our Lord Aelric inhabits.....
Mine has two moons.....
Oh and bye the way Amarie and Nil - Lord Aragorn 86 sends his love and hugs and says you must text him and keep in touch and you must force me (ha ha) to text him as well.
Well its not up to me, but for the sake of character balance, story continuity, and common sense i thik it kinda silly and will only encourage more folks to join in who want Drow/Uruk/Vampire/hybrids who have dragon blood and omnipotent Magicks, or somesuch.
Which is a good reason, I think, for people to post character bio and some info before they starte posting in the story thread.
*pokes Amarie in the eye and flees*
Does Amarie have fleas? No! Surely not!
The sword wouldn't have tossed Aelric out to sea unless it knew if it could get him to swim to shore.
Ok so things have a expectedly motored on somehat since i last posted. I better get a move on and kill Roth then!
I need to get a grip on the timeline because I have an idea but....
The timeline needs to be......
Roth and Nil were childhood friends.
Roth wandered off and was captured and spent time in Barad Dur
During which time he came into contact with the spirit guy whose name I have forgotten already
He was tortured etc.
About 18 months after that she married Aelric.
The spirit/sorcerer was tricked into putting the curse on them at the wedding.
The spirit was then trapped within Roth (although he had been influencing him for a long time)
Roth then 'escaped' taking the spirit with him.
This also explains why Roth can do magic on occasions.
Roth then led the orcs to Nil's village - guess who was responsible!
Nil went off to Lothlorien and Roth wandered....
The problem I have now is how many years would it be between Nil going to Lothlorien and now? Nil being an elf obviously lives longer but to coincide these events with Vael (race of Men and short lived) I need to decide roughly how old Vael can be so that there can be enough time for Nil to do all her stuff with Galadriel.
I am thinking that Vael, descended like Aelric from Numenor/Westernesse is reasonably long lived. She was young when she met Roth so she could be in her 50s or 60s and still look young. I know with elves we usually count in thousands....... but would 40 years be enough?
I want the spirit to torment Nil about the orc raid on her village.
I'd like Vaeltira to rescue poor, possessed Aelric.
About to post in the next 10-20minutes ok, if work doesnt interfere.
I'd like Vaeltira to rescue poor, possessed Aelric.
Aragorn, Nil, Ama and Vael joins hands, skipping and jumping and singing
We're off to save Lord Aelric
Umbars most grumpiest lord
Because we are nice, we do not think twice
The Sword Wraitht does hate us all
If ever, oh ever, a wraith there was
The Sword Wraith is one because,
because, because, because, because, because--
because of the horrible things he does.
Ok, go do something useful Ama, remember your hidious exam?
but Amalerie, you still cant spell Aelric AELRIC ...not Aerlic (Ear lick, ewww!)
Well my post is coming along and i've just slaughtered Roth, is that ok?
PS please fellow questoids, dont post anything just yet, i had to save the post prematurely, just to avert the log-out issue, got a bit left to do.
Was trying so hard to remember how to spell wraith, that I forgot to check the names.
Lord Earlick sound like a very interesting man, I hope we never ever meet!! *yuk*
Ah I see.... more to come........ phew!
Vaeltira is happy to rescue her poor demented husband.
But how and when?
Amarie: There are a couple of bits of Nil's bio in the notes but they seem to conflict slightly and I am not sure what the end result was......
Do what you want with Nil and the spirit...according to your post, Vee, where Roth and the thing were talking together, it wants Nil for something? But then Roth also made it promise not to hurt her (yeah, let's just see how well that promise goes). So, torture her with renewed memories, etc...just don't make her deathly sick or unconscious...she has enough of that for two lifetimes.
Conflict - er.... not sure now... saw a couple of posts from Nil about the character and wasn't sure which bits were still pertinent.
Or are they working together Vee?
I think we talked about this last week but i cant remember what we decided upon - if anything?
It would make sense if they were playing from the same sheet, otherwise there's gonna be too many elements working toward what ultimately is the same end.
Dunno - me confused now Too!
Maybe the spirit and the vamp can fight it out together...... whoever wins goes on to challenge the rest.
I have just added a bit to a previous post mentioning how whatshisname gave the sword to Aelric.
sorry about Daria. i've got her for another story i'm writing and just thought i'd add her. what i meant by the soft c is that it sounds like an s (more feminine) instead of a k. i'd love to still play if you dont mind. you could always use Daria as human if you want.
I thought you hated us and didn't want to play with us anymore.
I am glad Daria has her own story, she deserves that. And Daria the human is very welcome to join.
(And finally a caracter whos name isn't so hard to spell *hehe* )
Etharion is right, we need more writers!
Give us a little bio of Daria so we know who she is, so we don't treat her wrong when we meet her. Where she is from, what she looks like, how old she is, and if you have any idea where we will meet her. Anything you can think of about her. We wanna know.
Welcome to the Quest, Moonstar!
We don't know how the orcs got there either. I think it is possible they brought with them a slave of two or more, depending on how many orcs there are/were.
It is sad about Drogba and the dwarves, I almost paniced when I though Drogba died on the island. But it wasn't him. *phew* Maybe AmariŽ will start spending some time with Drogba now that she thinks/knows Arkantos is hiding something. And Drogba seems to have a way with women that poor Arkie-boy doesn't. But I don't know how to write for him.
Maybe if we give him a proper background, a little bit about his parents, siblings, how he came into Aelrics service, how they became friends.. (I wrote Aerlic again, but thought about Earlick and fixed it )
Someone pleeeeeeaaaaace adopt a character!!!!
Just added a bit more...tell me if you like it. Since Nil agreed to whatever she's supposed to do, Aragorn nor Amarie is going to be able to get a thing out of her about what happened - that sound okay?
Oh, and just for the record, I'm still ignoring Aelric, no matter what he threatens. Hehehehehehe....
Moving away are you? Tsk tsk tsk... Oh well, vacations are nice.
I am very happy to live in Rivendell, though if the Grey Havens became awailable I might move there. I live on the coast and the weather is often grey (hehe) and shipbuilding and fishery is very important around here.
handy to know what she looked like....
...and the bat-fell of Thuringwethil. She was the messenger of Sauron, and was wont to fly in vampire's form to Angband; and her great fingered wings were barbed at each joint's end with an iron claw.
Interesting. reading that piece of the Sil I see that Morgoth lusted after Luthien and was distracted by his naughty thoughts thus allowing her to blind him with a song of blinding power and he roamed to and fro, seeking her. Ahhhhh, bless. Morgoth in Love.
And what i typed/wrote earlier was pure gold! DAMMIT!
The sword is called the "the Claw of Thuringwethil" its hilt is wrought from her previous form(Iron claws), all that materially survived of her after the sacking of Angband. Errr. Mother?
Why did I not save it???
You want an answer?
btw is what I posted OK or has it messed your idea up?
I admit to watching too much Buffy!
I can take it out if you like or Amarie will....... power mad elf that she is.
Hey Aelric, you type just how you sound on the phone!
"Yes dear, it is me, but mommy has changed a little bit since she went away. I am now half man you see."
Ok... here is a scary thought that popped into my head, if Thuringwethil is the things mommy, who is the daddy? The spirit inside Roth perhaps? Roth and Aelric and the baby-bat, just one big happy family. Disturbing.
Lord Aelric is meowing??? You are a very odd little kitty, you must be related to my Blackie.
Are there more than one 'baby'?
OK the deal with these Vampire-wraiths is simple (uhm - NOT), ok from what i recall from myself and Veeeeeeeee's conversation last night (which isnt much) The spirit in Roth is a one time accomplice/follower or Thuringwethil and is a powerful Necromancer, he wants to be reborn in the flesh as does the Thuringwethil, but his designs depend upon the success of her corrupting the gem in the presence of living vessels, harnessing the darkling power of the corrupted gem they will be able to walk the earth in their primordial forms. The reunion of HER brood is necessary inasmuch as it will bolster her power (which is at the moment pretty fragile) and assist in the Sorcerer/Necromancer's spell/ritual in corrupting the gem.
And become a PT supporter yer stingy whatsit!
If that can be the kinda bare bones of the evil folks plots and plan i reckon we can embellish it either way as we go...
If you have a bettererest idea, i'm all orificeses or is that orifi?
Look i live in Scotland now, and i have come to appreciate their stinginess...heh.
Nah i would but my credit is non-existent, seriously a bank would nae touch me since i left University, no thanks to my Uni days of taking multiple bank accounts, credit cards, student loans et al. It's really that simple, i dont have credit, i no longer need it either!
Besides £1 a month is like the equivalent of six extra pints o lager i wouldnt have had a year, could make a hell of a difference!
Here you might get 3 if you are lucky!
Well I included a dwarf and Drogba in my latest post. Poor neglected Drogba, I am trying to adopt him. Nil seems to get the dwarf lingo a lot better than me, but I bearly know the language enough to write a proper post. To expect me to manage dialects as well is a bit much to ask.

Just imitation, my dear Amarie, just imitation. That's what makes it so much fun to have the password to your best friend's email - I come off sounding just like her! Way more fun to see me in person though, with all my different voices...
Ooooo - cool! Nil went evil for awhile (yeah, I know, not her fault but it's still kinda cool). My turn! I'll post now.
