Éadnes Andwiltan of Mirkwood - Peter C.

If you have a character in our game, you will find their journal in this area, as well as some stickied threads near the top of the list for songs and stories. As well Player-heroes (PHs), as they are called in The One Ring, have some basic information here concerning how to build them. A journal means you have the opportunity to develop your character's depth to help you be able to get into them, even in a slow-flow forum-based setting such as our game. Have fun with it... using your journal and helping the group with songs may even lead you to gaining experience for posting about them.

Thank you but I don't think I have the weight of Tolkien.
LoreMaster Note Yet, for all that influenced his writing, he was still a day-to-day person, like you or I. Have you read "J.R.R. Tolkien" by Humphrey Carpenter? I am a little more than halfway through the book -unfortunately, I'm a slow reader- and I find myself having a great deal in common with the man, and I think all common men would. I recognize parts of Carpenter's writing for what they are, not for what Carpenter makes them; for example, I believe the Professor suffered form Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, as I do, but he was able to bury himself in his profound Catholic faith, in all of the business he tended to day-after-day, in staying more clear of Edith and his children, despite how much he loved them, as he did, and engrossing himself in not only his own writing but in being constructive in the writing of others and other projects. I would not say that he hid himself away from everyone, but he also knew that, after the battle of the Somme, he would never be the same, again, and so purposed to work himself to death. What the author, and others around Tolkien saw as oddities of mind, memory, and thought I know under a different guise.

Just understand, my friend, your writing is superb and I always look forward to reading what you have to write. Thank you for sharing it with me, with all of us.

Available XP at present

Pete,

You have managed to earn quite a few experience points for expenditure, if you desire. You may increase one of the following and here are the things available for you to spend it on...
  • either Awareness or Lore to Rank 4, costing the 4 points you have in either skill plus 8 general XP, leaving 0 remaining;
     
  • either Craft or Travel to Rank 2 for 7 general XP, leaving 1 remaining;
     
  • either Healing, Persuade, or Search to Rank 2, costing 1 point in the skill plus 6 general XP, leaving 2 remaining;
     
  • Hunting to Rank 2 for 7 general XP, leaving 1 remaining;
     
  • either Inspire or Riddle to Rank 1, costing 4 general, leaving 4 remaining. Of course, you could increase both of these for 4 general each, leaving 0 remaining;
     
  • Dagger to Rank 2 for 8 general XP, leaving 0 remaining.
 
Again, you are not required to spend anything, this is just giving you options if you would like to.

Alright, my friend, I'll have to edit that in a bit later... likely late tonight or some time tomorrow. ~ DONE. I'll upload at the appropriate time.

LoreMaster Note Pete, Éadnes has 7 General XP available to use, as well as some Specific XP, and you can choose at least one of the following to improve...
  • Common Skills
    • You could use 7 GXP to improve one of the following to Rank 2: Craft, Hunting, or Travel, leaving 0 GXP
    • You could use 3 GXP to improve Courtesy from a half-skill to Rank 1, and/or Search up to Rank 1
    • You could use 3 GXP to improve Persuade to Rank 1
    • You could use 4 GXP to purchase Rank 1 in either of the following: Inspire or Riddle.
     
  • Weapon Skills
    • You can afford to improve none of these, just now.
     
  • Masteries
    • You can afford to improve none of these, just now, as most of them require 10 GXP to purchase.
     
  • Valor/Wisdom
    • You have 7 XP in Wisdom and could use 5 GXP to improve that to Rank 3, leaving 2 GXP. Of course, this would also allow you to add a new Virtue.
    • You have 2 XP in Valor and could use 6 GXP to improve that to Rank 2, leaving 1 GXP. This would allow you to select and add a new Reward.
     
  • Attributes
    • You can afford to improve none of these, just now.
 
Of course, you can also save your XP as General, if you're not sure what you would like to do, just now, or you could distribute points as you like to Specific XP for the next item(s) you think you might want to build up.

Hi Paul,

I'll leave it just now.
I will need to look up Rewards and Virtues to see what would fit well.

Pete

Hi Paul,

Looking through them, I am thinking of the virtue Gifted and raising my sword skill by one.
It seems to fit with the fact I have been doing more adventuring than story telling.

I like the Shadow Bane but feel it doesn't really fit with the character yet.

Pete

LoreMaster Note Okay, you are thinking of the virtue Gifted, or that's actually what you want me to update your sheet with?

Okay, cool. I'll get that done, next, then.

There was a bit of a problem with the Virtue and I sent you a PM about it.

LoreMaster Note Done... That was a nice choice, especially if you are able to do more hand-to-hand and/or with melee weapons. Your sheet is updated and uploaded... as always, if you don't see the change right away, just reload the page, and it should update immediately. :D
