Thread: A meeting in Rivendell
<<         >>
He strung his bow as he ran toward the sounds, approaching the East Gate. Yelling out a word in a strange tongue, he fired off his arrow into the orcs ahead, as it arced down it flamed and with a huge explosion of fire landed in the midst of them, killing most of the twenty orcs. Drawing his blade as he ran forward, he slew those who were alive, still running through them with hardly a glance at the sprawled bodies burning. He saw that he was approaching the gate, and before he stepped out into the light he pulled his hood up over face. His keen hearing caught the sound of voices, and he stepped back into the shadows as he saw a dwarf come runnig through the gate, with some leaves in his hand. Following him back into the hall, he stopped before the dwarf reached some others that Fionwë heard. As they started moving again, he followed, always staying in the darkest shadows. They had no idea that anyone other than orcs was so close to them...
He said they were returning from Grey Havens, when his sister were captured in the Misty Mountains.
Let's do our best, Arath!
"i will guard us as we carry him"
Arath spreaded his dark wings to cover them
"i thank cloverless"
It's ever so dark now. Can't even see the next step. But what is worrying me is the sound of silence. I thought I heard fighting some minutes ago, but now it is utter silence!
Look, Arath, your blade is shifting colour again! We have to hide Turion behind this rock and prepare for fight! Remind me of getting more arrows as fast as possible!
I wish you could find us another dwarf or two, Thorin!!
"maybe we should look back a little"
BTW This is my post nr 2000!
"I Râd ui-renia lim a lim

Si palan-'wenniel nâ Râd,

A na-man hi? Ú-bedithon."
the party recognise the song, but cannot fix from where, either way, its fills them with hope and courage, then a voice, clear above the song says,
"im cariath i lond rath, mellyn nín"
the mist dissipates, and you feel Turion is at rest~~
Rafael were standing with the new blade in his hands; awestruck. His head bowed, listening to the unspoken words, the unsung song.
Turion's body laying peaceful behind the small rock.
Arath's blade is glowing blueish. They hear a battle-cry from the other side!
i could not connect to pt!! every other site worked! is this only on my com or on everyones
"Baruk-Khazad!Khazad ai menu" and charged the orc. His shout was magnified by the vastneess of the hall and it seemed to the listners that the dwarven hall lent potency to the dwarf's voice as he cried in the darven tongue.
"how many are there i see only twelve"
My new blade are taking it's toll. I believe we are crushing those yrch. But I don't understand why they don't try to escape! What is stopping them. Are they threatened from behind?
Let's press on!
"i'll do a frontal attack, Rafael flank them from the right and you arath flank from the left and crush them"
the problem is that i can't see my new avatar yet. And to think a 17yrs old kid like me having a beard like that.
Remind me to pick up arrows, Thorin, when this ordeal is done. I'm sure we may need all we can find!
BTW- I bet you started early growing that beard. It kind of makes you look older!
"Hey rafael don't forget to pick up arrows. Your quiver is nearly empty."
btw-this is a photo of gimli, not me. If i went to college with a beard like that, an armour and an axe they would kick me out
Look Arath, what I found. Those arrows are signed by you, these are mine, but look...!
This arrow is surely elven-made, but it doesn't belong to either of us, and if you look around there are several similar in the uruk-bodies.
I believe we have an unseen cousin nearby!
"well raffy when we reach more sure land you you teach me some bow work"
"we better reach the gate before nightfall or we'll have other orcs on us. Ifear the elf will proove a burden. We should have left him in the well. I cannot guard your rear against countless enemies. If we had someone else it would be easier to give him a decent burial but at least in the well no one would have dishonoured his bones"
Now come on Arath, let's carry off our fallen kind.
Thorin, why don't you scout out front! I trust our unseen friend to cover our backs.
"And don't make any noise"
"and take care of your rear not all enemies of the orcs are our friends. Till we are not sure who is following us we will have to be on our guard."
"even my quiver is half empty i will not suffer to take ork arrows"
arath mumbled a long phrase of elvish words and his quiver is refilled
"aha! you may keep those you found"
"show me those arrows rafael. do they have a signature?"
again!!!!! i couldnt connect to pt!!!!!! this is irrotating!!!!
nice avatar thorin
I do not know the signature, but you may. These arrows are made of an elf from Beleriand!
Take a closer look, Arath.
"interesting" he mumbled
"show yourself!" he yelled to the darkness around them.
"there is no need to hide we are your friends!"
arath turned to rafael
"that is if he is our friend"
"the orks are enemies of everyone thought the owner of this arrow has slain orks it does not mean that he is our friend.... or maybe some ork just scavenged this arrow from someone"
I do not believe it! I think it is a friend. He has helped us to fight these foes, but for the time being, he prefer to hide his face. I prefer to think of this elf as a secret friend.
Turion tried to tell me of his sister Mealwen, is her name. They lost connection. He was afraid she was captured. I didn't quite got his message, consentrating my mind on his healing. To me it sounded something like Missy Mona-something. I didn't quite get his meaning then, and I am trying to find a meaning now. Do you have a clue?
"but still i am afraid that this one is not on our side. some answer the call of the dark lord rather than the valar. i have been told that some of the moriquendi fight for the dark one.... i hope that this elf who hides in the mines is not one of them.... surely he can be of the same group that turion was but then why would he hide?"
Thorin! There is the entrance isn't it? Please lift the phial, so we can get a closer look!
(i also could not connect but that's because our cables were damaged by the earth quake which occured in indonisia)
(i also could not connect but that's because our cables were damaged by the earth quake which occured in indonasia)
I believe we can find a resting place for Turion while we're at peace, but let us hurry.
" i herd sounds of battel and came to assist you but i see that they have been taken care of my name is corgon swiftblade and i was traveling north to the mountans but if i may i can travel with you if you need the extra hand my blade and bow are at your sirvice" corgon says holding down his hand to thorian.
"hail my friend" he said
finally!!!! i was able to connect!
The heap of dead orcs are growing as Thorin, Arath and Rafael are entering the orc horde in their front, while Corgon and Fionwe join their forces from behind.
The orcs stumblin over each other trying to escape south are in a panick. It is a slaughterhouse.
The five warriors are pressing the orcs toward a cliff.
The five of them pushed harder, and then the orcs ran. Rafael cut to the side and headed them off, while Thorin took the other flank. The other three drove the orcs forward like a herd of cattle. Fionwë turned his face as he sent a blast of light harmlessly through the orcs, blinding them momentarily. Then they vanished over the cliff...
Rafael are studying Fionwe. So you are our backing, friend. I'm glad I trusted you.
I'm afraid that if Arath, Thorin and I had been taken by surprise of that lot, it had ended our adventure. You came also to our rescue Corgon, in the nick of time.
Did anybody make a foe-count. We must have killed more than five scores of orcs.
That sparkling sword of yours Fion, that's really something!
Your arrows told us that you are a Beleriand, but what were you doing in Moria's dark chambers?
And Corgon if you come from the Grey Havens, are you familiar to Turion and his sister?
"my friends save your greetings later we have a sadder business to attend to"
OOC: I've started a new adventure thread if any are interested.
Corgon, we will be happy to hear about Turion and his sister Mealwen, when we have laid Turion to rest.
