When someone says fantasy we may all think different universes. Warhammer, warcraft, DnD ... But tracing into the origin of popular epic fantasy many come to the conclusion that the absolute classic and to some the pinnacle of the genre is none other than the works of Tolkien. In regards to that I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in joining a RP created in that exact universe.

 

As not to split up everything i will give you the general idea of the plot: Dorwinion is a land near the sea of Rhun where the estalings have their teritory for the most part. It's a land known for it's wine and with the help of some devide and conquer i've pieced together that the Avari elves (a subrace that never followed Orome) live there in a small amount. Not only that, two wizards that went to free the east from Saurons grasp remain unaccounted for. THis is where the story will take place. Some time after the hobbit and some time before lord of the rings. Dorwinion is peacful and prosperus however each day the closing estalings of Rhun threaten it's borders and seek to subjugate it before their dark lord. What is worse, the immortal lord of the Estalings seems to be gaining wealth even greater than that of the Vale of Dorwinion. In these times letters were sent out across middle earth, to individuals who would come to Caras Sant, the city of gardens and meet in the golden grape tavern. Council has been called in the elven court of the Avari, led by Nurwe, who was elected high councilor only after the previous one was slain on a peacful mission to Minstrand, the elves are supporting all out war against the estalings. So come, come to the land of wine and the Avari, the halls of the decadent wine-lords and rumor shadowed Avari, come save the east from the ravenous clutchings of sauron. They shall not pass.

I love Tolkien' works, so my answer should be obvious.

Huh two already. Disclamer: I will not tolerate new wizards or shitty elves. But regardless it's good to see some actually are interested.

Completely understand the wizard proclamation.
Definition of "shitty elves"?

Well most usually think every elf is legolas, they break lore, they don't use elvish, they think they don't die when they are killed and in general they think themselves sex machines.

I would be up for this, as previously discussed!  I'd probably use a human of Gondor or Rohan, if not a dwarf.  I do so love the shorter bearded individuals.

One thing that may be concievably problematic is that each individual will be asked to provide a reason why the letter was sent to him. since i cannot predict characters and make them fit.

Sorry, I noticed them, but was a bit scared off by the rules. It looks like you're wanting something very specific, and I fear being unable to deliver. I don't know elvish or dwarfish, and I'm afraid my character will fall into a category that you have a distaste for unintentionally.

It's not so much the language as it is the way they act. Quality is something that is a must but still. And if all fails there is always human.

Currently working on an Elvish Blademaster character. I have a particular style in mind, and wanted to make sure it fit together. I'll probably have a character sheet together later today or tomorrow.
I likewise was a little intimidated by some of the requirements like Mystic, but based on my understanding, I figured I could get by with what I do know and what can be googled.

I agree with what the others said. I think you're looking for something very specific. I barely remember what I read from the Hobbit and LOTR book that trying to remember the whole lore would be hard.

To be honest i'm not looking for anything too specific. I would like to form a logical and lore friendly story that encompases rhun and dorwinion, potentially going down all the way to Khand. THe rules are quite basic as far as i know. YOu can't have an elf that goes around hugging dwarves and stuff like that ... and the languages are not required i just noted that as a example.


Side note: the lore from the hobbit is the least necissary. Silmarillion and sons of hurin are much better. Unfinished works and the actual lord of the rings also take priority above hobbit. (reason for that being the hobbit was a children's book)
