Welcome! This is a Lord of the Rings roleplaying game based on the trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien (book verse).

Unnoticed by most, things have been moving in the North. No longer content with merely guarding the good people of the North in secret, the Rangers have gathered to make their own move against the Sauron's forces..

Plot & Quick Links

Frodo and Sam failed in their quest to destroy the one ring. It is lost in Mordor, and the two Hobbits have no choice but to turn back.

The fate of Middle Earth once more is undecided.

Pooka -- they're not bad if people use them correctly/don't overuse them, but most peeps do just that.
Elladan -- Wow, that is a TERRIBLE idea. I can see why you dislike 'em!
Pooka -- I mentioned it the other day because I'd just called a site out on using it, for all those reasons. And told them that if any of that happened, I'd pack up and leave. Which, as I play two very important plot characters, would suck.. Because bugger pussy footing around the issue.
Pooka -- Sorry, had a couple of days where I was mega tired. Basically, it's short for In Character Chat. The idea is for them to be fun, often a little random and silly, though you may occasionally use them to establish past events/test a new character out, but that's supposed to be about it. They're usually done in a CBOX kind of setting. Except some people tend to just use them for everything in the end, so the following things will happen -- they'll stop posting in threads, site activity will drop until it's dead, and worst of all, they'll start using interaction on there and blurring it with actual posting and plots. The result often is that cliques form, people who don't post in there often have no idea what's going on, and people get left out/edged out big time. I've seen it happen before, which is why while I don't mind it for fun over instant messengers, I have massive issues about it being on sites. It can literally decide whether or not I join a site.
Elladan -- The suspense is killing me. What is it??
