 Post subject: Official: The Ride of Eorl
PostPosted: June 26th, 2007, 1:21 pm 


This is one of the slow-paced adventurous RPGs being run over the summer.

Here is the situation: Gondor has come under attack. Orcs have come down out of the Mountains, whilst, simultaneously, a fierce people of Men has come up out of the East. The marauding forces have overrun Calenardhon (the land that became Rohan), and the Steward of Gondor, Cirion, has sent north for help. Tidings of his need have come finally to Eorl, lord of the Éothéod. He has sent word to all his people to gather at his camp in preparation for the ride to Gondor.

Please answer his call, and join the ride to battle.


(remember folks, whilst you are free to pick a character, you should be one of the Northmen. I'm not aware that any elves got involved in this particular campaign ;) )


We'll all be part of the same company in the army, and the RPG will cover our adventures on the journey, and the final battle.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Character List

Darrell - Fastred
celestine - Olivia
Larael - Hathawyn
Elegost - Aldwulf
Murtagh's Misery - Thorontur
Elenya - Thire
Dark, Queen of Angmar - Dark
Will - Miriel

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Eorl looked out over the field in which his force was camped. There was a small scattering of tents, but not enough to make a dent in the ranks of any enemy. But more would come. In a few days, they would be ready to ride.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(As Tolkien wrote very little about this, there is a wide range for imagination, but please be aware, the RP has to finish by the 20th of September. I myself will play my own character, and will only include Eorl if I feel the story needs moving on.)

I'll join up then under my usual name. Obviously I'm a human, with some sword weilding skills. I think that's really all you need to know about me. I don't want to risk becoming Mary Sue-ish.. ;)


Larael rode into Eorl's camp early in the morning, just as the sun began to rise. Her family was quite aware of her absense and although they hadn't exactly agreed with sending her to help fight a battle, she was the best candidate in the family. Swiftly, Larael swung down from her horses saddle and walked into the still sleepy camp.

Ok, time we got this ball rolling. Hopefully, more people will join once things are started.

My Character's Bio:

Name: Fastred
Race: Northman
Age: 35
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Golden (like the Rohirrim)
Appearance: A little under six foot tall. Well built, not slender, but carrying little extra weight. Wears light ringmail, an open faced helm, and scale greaves. As weapons, we uses a spear, and a shortsword.
Other: He is in command of the company that all characters are a part of.

Fastred saw another new arrival come in on horse back. He strode up, and partially blocked the route further inot the camp.

'Good morning, friend. I am glad to see that you have answered the call of our Lord. What name do you go by?'

Appearance
Eye Colour:hazel
Hair Colour:Reddy-brown
Height:5'5
Other:Muscled, but not body builder muscled. Small scar above left eye and another scar on her neck.
Animals: Chonara, a roan mare.

Clothing etc: A green cape, black britches, and gray-green cotton tunic. Leather vanbracers and greaves, all embossed with styalized Dragons. Light scale mail shirt over top of cotton and wool tunics(dont want armour bites).

This is going to be fun!!

Dark slowed Chonara to a walk, they had been riding hard for two suns, and they were both tired. Dark dismounted and led Chonara into the sleepy camp, looking around for a stable.

Thorontur reined in his mare, Shekai, to a halt and dismounted. He undid her girth a little so she could breath easier, and went off in search of a stable.

[Changing my name to something a bit more Middle-Earth-ish. I am now Hathawyn.]

After tethering her horse in front of an empty tent, Hathawyn took a look around the camp. It definitely wasn't very impressive. But in truth, she hadn't expected much. Her stomach growled, but she ignored it. There was not time to be lost. She had to go see her commander. Following a lad who looked her age Hathawyn made her way to meet Fastred, who she knew to be in charge.
