*Elrond gracefully enters Rivendell's commons, flanked on each side by his strapping young sons. He throws a casual glance about the immediate area, and let's loose his long rehearsed welcome for all those present.*
Elrond:: "Ah yes, Friends, Allies, Free Peoples of Middle Earth, welcome........ to Rivendell. Also known as Imladris,
Karningul, The First Homely Home, The Last Homely Home by the Sea, The House of Elrond Half-Elven, The Hidden Refuge, etc. Please find your way over to the council chambers as there is much to be discussed. Erestor, my chief counsellor, will be provided the refreshments."
Elrond:: "On your way over be sure to check out the shards of Narsil and the statue of Gilrean. The council will begin shortly, if you have any questions ill be at the 26th waterfall from the right of the west wing. Again, welcome, im pleased that many have decided to make the journey, as all our fates, regardless of race, are bound by the issue at hand."
