Thread: Travel to the stars
ok, i am gonna try to add to the story, I hope i don't mess it up. I am not as articulate as you are. In this thread Mellie is not a hobbit, she is human.
Mellie, walks outside with a cup of herbal tea that has a hint of strawberries in it. Mellie is rather short for a human, only about 5'2', with long blond hair, and green eyes. She is wearing a long green skirt that matches her eyes, and a cream colored blouse with green ribbons laced through the neck and sleeves. Her hair is tied back with a green ribbon that is identical to the ones in her blousse. She also has a long green sash about her waist hiding a pouch that has her gold and silver in it, as well as some other more precious items. She also has daggers carefully hidden within easy reach. When she steps out on to the deck she takes a deep breath and smells the wonderful scent of the the flowers, and wonders when the next time will be that she can enjoy such a beautiful morning. Then she spies k sitting above her in the willow tree. Well must her contact, and thinks to herself, so much for my last relaxing cup of tea. Mellie decides to get this thing started and climbs the tree and begins talking to K.
Good morning. This is a rather lovely morning isn't.
Yes mellie replayed in a sing songy voice.
K took a sip of her tea a laid back in her chair. Mellie waiching her. She was a pretty girl. Not like k. SHe seemed more of a doll and not one who could threaten. K eyed her and then began to speak.
I was suppost to meet some one here but they have not come. Are you interrested in travling or any such things of that sort. For if you are then you may come with me. I'm looking for people to help me on a quest. I will be straight with you. I'm saurons daught. I chose a path in the light. Mordor is no longer a threat put Now I wont back what is mine. Mordor was my home and I wish to return to it but bring splender and beauty with me. I need brave souls that will accompany me on this journy.
K took another sip after that mouth full of words and waiched as mellie tryed to swollow what was just said.

But her curiosity was raised now, Halo lent forward slightly to listen in. Maybe if the women were nice enough they'd let her tag along with them...

Mellie, then looks up and sees another stranger approaching, with a jangling backpack and a grey mouse telling him that he is hungry, and that they need to stop soon. Mice want to eat after they wake up. This mouse is now running all over the stranger pointing to the inn, and yelling at him to stop.
Sorry, Keeper of the Stars. Can you keep your signature to a maximum of three lines and no smilies please.

"Well thats something you don't see everyday." she commented.
As Halo sits there she realises that she's quite looking forward to meeting up with Mellie and K for dinner, they both seem nice, though K was a little quiet...
I have to go now but i'll be back for dinner.
Quickly k left her seat and traveled quickly down the path her feet hardly making a sound. HEr hair set off a silver gleam. K's mind was a buzz and her head ached. Disappearing into her quit little room. Her hands twiching uneasily. SHe strapped a pair of daggers to her thighs and sat in the darkness shinning her sword.
Up! She spoke in a swift commanding voices but not letting her voice get to loud.
It's time to ride halo. You have 10 min then i leave with out you.
K walked from the room as the sleepy halo woke up and snarled. Now it was off to get the rest of the party.
She, not knowing what K is up to but sensing something strange, feels compelled to discover the mystery behind it.
(Hope it's okay to join in?

Absent-mindly, she pulled some of her tip money out of her pocket and put in the beggar's bowl.
SHe walked alittle ways towards the stable to get her horse. HEr ears still picking up the once beggers musical voice and the feel of his energy. She tosed back her hair letting the sun shine on her china doll skin. She let it;s soft rays melt the coldness out of her.
She wistled lowly and there was a rustly. Sil Ninned back and k touched the blask mares main brushing it softly she looked into the horses eyes. Two glimmering pools of black looking back at her. The spirit in side sil was restless as well and as k prepared her for the ride.
Then her body slowly slumped to the ground.
I know the wizard you seek. He is the son of Radagast the Birdtamer. I also wish to find him. He owes me...well, let's just say, he is in great debt to me.
Beleg smiled and hoped they would believe him. He was tired of dancing around the truth with women.

"Thank you my friend....pray what is your name? and what do you know of this fiend then.
But suddenly he noticed one of the women, a waitress by the looks of her, crumpled on the ground.
"There is a maiden on the ground, there," he said, pointing. "Does anyone know who she is?" Being an elf, and seeing many things, indeed, he even saw the Kinslaying, Beleg was not overly alarmed at the girl. She had probable fainted.
"Who are you? What happened? I must have fainted."
As she gained her wits, she remembered the beggar and the strange site she had beheld. Then she glanced around at the others. Her eyes met with the former begger and she quickly turned and looked to the ground.
She wondered if the former begger knew . . . Best not to even think it for now.

Turning to the others, he said: "We should take her back to the inn to lay down."
"Well then, Venire," Beleg said, after the others sat silent. "Gwathon the Terrible lives in the ruins of Barad-dur. We can start out for Mordor as soon as possible."
Venire then stood and lit up a Lembas leaf rolled with pipeweed and walked to the smithy.
"Sorry I haven't introduced myself. The name's Beleg."
"Friend Forge how our you???" asked Venire
"Not too bad old friend..and you have arrived just in time there finished.."
"Excellent" roared Venire as he looked over the workmanship.
"Another fine job you have done Forge...once again I'm in yer debt..."
"It's always a pleasure do work on something different and if I need you I know where to find you."
"That you do and never hesitate to call."
"and heres your payment 100,000 gold pieces and keep the change Forge you have out done yerself this time."
So Venire left the blacksmith and slipped on his new weapons and walked back to the inn and now he was ready fo PAYBACK.
"Ah, do I hear talk of a quest to Mordor?" The voice was smooth and soft. Beleg scowled and opened his mouth to speak. The figure bowed to them. As he did so a few locks of snow white hair became visible, but due to the strangers hood that was all thet could be seen.
"May I have the pleasure of introducing myself?" he didn't wait for an answer "My name it Matthias, but I am somethimes known as Matti to my friends."
Beleg scowled a bit more, though he was more curious than angry. "So?" he asked, shrugging "Why should your name matter to us?"
The stranger smiled. Even though the strangers face was not visible under his hood, you could feel he was smileing.
"I have traveled far, but know Mordor like the back of my hand. Strangers in that foul land would not last long, especialy since the only safe way in is though the marshes. Allow me to be your guide there, for I too hold a grudge with that fiend Gwathon. I would be honoured to guide you to him. I know much of his home, for there is more to it than meets the eye!"Matthias pulled up a chair and began to explane about Gwathon's lair...
Ooc: Why? Cause K, Mellie and Halo seem to have rode off into the sunset, plus I wanted to play a boi for a change.
Also known as: Matti, Matt and Get Back Here With My Horse
Race: Drow Elf. Yeah, I know theres none of 'em in Middle Earth, but I just read my first R.A.Salvatore book an' now I'm hooked on the little b*ggers!
Skills: Tends to use two swords (one in each hand), a short sword and one of his own design. Handy with anything sharp and pointy really.
Weapons: Short sword, sword of own design (possibly made from Mithril, don't ask him about it too much, he's a bit touchy on the subject), various different knifes that he has hidden around his person.
Description: White hair, black skin. His eyes are odd; one is red while the other is violet. He tends to wear a long, black, hooded cloak. Under his cloak he wears light armor made from leather, which appears black at first, but if you look close enough its acctualy a very dark red.
Background: Matti doesn't talk about his past much. Though it is known his mother wasn't a follower of the spider-goddess, like most female Drow elves. He hates others of his kind and is scared of anything remotley like a spider. Its believed he was bought up by a horse-lord in Rohan. He also has friends in Gondor. Hes genuenly friendly and theres something about him that makes even foes like and trust him.

"But where" he pondered
"I shall remember it later on."
As he entered the inn he noticed a cloaked figure at the table talkin' to Beleg...."
"ummm who is this now." wondered Venire
" a friend of Beleg prehaps. But he never said anyone was meeting him....well I'll find out soon enough."
So Venire strided over to the table....
"So who do we have here" asked Venire
"My name is Matthias and I hope to be your guide through Mordor, if you all don't mind that is." He looked at Venire and the others, obviously looking for permission.
Venire looked at Matti for a long time, before nodding and sitting down at the table.
"Say, Matthias wasn't it? You wouldn't happen to know about that horse outside would you?" Venire watched Matti closely, but the man just shrugged.
"It arrived a few minutes after I got here." he awnsered "Bit odd though, I couldn't seem to focus on the rider. Everytime I tried to look at him my eyes lost focus and he went all blurred."
OOC: And he parked his horse on a double yellow line!
OOC: Sorry for the interuption, just ignore me, and carry on with your roleplaying.
Beleg didn't reply....and Venire turned his attention to Matthias....
"How many times have you been in Mordor and when was the last time????"
"And also what do you...." suddenley through the window came a bevvy of arrows....
"Everyone down" shouted Beleg....
"Is everyone ok"
"Only my pride is wounded friend" shouted Venire as he got up and jumped through the window and through away his cloak to leave his claws glinting in the sun....
He looked round and saw that the horse was gone and galloping east..."
"Beleg" shouted Venire "gather yourself and get Matthias I want this stranger alive.."
"Ya can't escape. I'll track you to the ends of the earth.."
Then the stranger turned and shot a smile at Venire...
"Fool" said the stranger as he stared at Venire
"You...." roared Venire
"I'll have yer head for this" shouted Venire
