Cologne!

Well I never.
My father was stationed there in the 60's. Apparently I visited but of course I don't remember.
My friend from Keele Uni lives there.
He runs a folk music business.
Apparently, the Broom Bezums are one of the bands he promotes.

As for ancestry Elaine and I are a mixed bunch.
My father is so Celtic (Ulster Scots) he can officially paint half his face blue and shout 'Freeedommmm!'
My mum is Anglo Saxon and derived from the genetic 'Eve' from mid Russia.
Elaine is a whole bottle of fun being partly from the Indonesian region, mixed with most of the UK.

I'm currently building new terrain for my Cthulhu Skirmish setting. I'm buying lots of odd figures so I can create a random encounter as players enter buildings. With the airships above ground and deep ones arriving from the harbour it will create one heck of a game. It takes me ages as there is only me making now when it used to be two.

As Paul said, I am his wife and we have four kids, who are 20 (Kieran), 21 (Samuel), 22 (Gavin), and (almost) 23 (Mary). We also have an adorable grandson named Logan who will be 3 in July. Gavin and Kieran live in Washington. Samuel is in the Air Force, stationed in Georgia. Mary is married to Matthew, who is in the Marines, and they are stationed in California. We have only been married since June 28, 2017. I work for Allstate Insurance.

I am relatively new to RPG's, as Paul introduced me to the concept when we met March 2017. This is the first time I have played online, and only participated in a few tabletop settings.

I've never been much for the Cthulhu setting; that sort of eldritch horror has never really interested me. I know, it's blasphemy... but, still, hehe.

She constantly underestimates her ability to role-play, though she's been very good at it, pretty much out of the gate. I would love to get us back into tabletop Torg Eternity, but we have to have folks close enough to play on the tabletop, first. I don't think that's going to be around here, as most of the folks here prefer Dungeons & Dragons, not even the D&D 5e version of The One Ring would work, reportedly. We may have to corrupt... I mean invite new people to role-play. :D

It's just occurred to me I've not allowed enough time for you guys to answer properly. However, please give an answer, here, if you're ready to go but not going to post anything, or post your next question/response in the main thread, please?

It's just that I started reading and then noticed the date... it's only been one day since I posted my last question. It's funny, I was telling Jacob to slow his roll, because he's extremely eager to join in on the game, and I need to slow MY roll. My apologies, all.

So I am doing some research and am wondering if anyone has seen or knows of a map of the lands to the south of Gondor? I have something floating around in my head, and also some maps to the East of and south of where we are now...the battle plains, thinking of something specific....

There are plenty of maps of the lands south of Gondor available online, just search for "Umbar" or "Harad".

I think we are asking the wrong questions, when I think of wraiths I think of the 9 ring wraiths, but remember, there is such a thing as barrow wights, they are similar in appearance and can be defeated by song, where as only specific types of weapons can defeat wraiths or oaths.

Just remember the 4 hobbits (happens in the future) are captured by a Barrow Wight and is defeated when Tom Bombadil sings his tune...

I understand what you're getting at, and you are correct but for one thing... bloody few people, perhaps less than a couple dozen, have ever had cause to see a wraith, and far fewer know the Ring Wraith's even exist. None of your characters would know of the Ring Wraiths, especially not this early in Sauron's preparations for the coming war.

I gotcha, but there are a few of us that encountered creatures that had the "dragon sickness" and this is similar, is it not? and that is why I am speaking up in here and not in the main forum
