OOC Thread: Dragontide & The First Gathering of the Five Armies

Welcome to Middle Earth.

All current role-playing will take place, here; record or post links to your die rolls, as well as anything you feel is relevant to playing your character in our present adventure, for ease of reference. All current Out-of-Character (OOC) discussions should take place here, as well, such as Fellowship/ Company planning. Please, keep your die rolls and short OOC notes in the main game thread; you may even use an OOC note to point to a topic (insert a URL into your post) or post elsewhere in this forum, as long as it is relevant to the on-going game.

Old adventures and OOC posts will go into the proper forum category area once the new adventure and OOC thread have been established. OOC threads MAY carry over to more adventures if I deem there is not enough in the current thread to separate it from a new OOC thread.

It would appear I have some that I either missed or did not address sufficiently; I shall endeavor to do so, now...

But all this is dependent on what the "Big Four" are going to talk about.
Honestly, I think this is going to be more about figuring out what just happened, and since you lot were there, it would only seem correct that you should be the ones to speak the most.

I think I may need to split the thread once more, hehe. We still have the coronation to go.
I will be splitting the thread before I go to write in it, again. This should affect NONE of you, unless you've not written in what is soon to become the previous thread. As I said, we still have the coronation to go. So, if you have been receiving notifications from the main thread and suddenly stop, come and check for the latest thread, alright?
 
NOTE: Gang, since the combat is done, please go to YOUR character profile (Click on the little man toward the upper-right of the dark brown bar -> In the tabs below the big User Control Panel title, click on the Profile tab -> scroll down on that page to Cbt Adv Dice: and, in the drop-down menu to the right of that, please click the arrow and reduce your CADs (Combat Advantage Dice) to 0? Thank you.

With our agreed upon escort of the nine riders of Mordor.. With a dragon.... And you can throw the one ring in there just to smooth things over.
ROFLMAO... if you're being escorted by the Nine, you're in for one hell of a stitch. The others already faced the Dragon, and The One Ring can't find itself, just now, LOL.

Yeah, but some OLD guy with a penchant for languages might have to build it from the ground up to find out what certain words mean, hehe.

I will just write some stuff if there is nothing from the crew, and hopefully your experience as a GM can craft it into a suitable story arch :D
Oh, thanks, make me the HEAVY, LOL. (OOC: Cracks fingers and neck bones in preparation!)

Do they? Do you? :)
 
we should be asking if there is a way to separate the being we are going after from this earth.
Is THIS your mission? LOL

These are not bad thoughts, Ellisidil, but they are in the wrong thread, hehe...

...especially last night with Summer MuMmers... I'll tell you about that, later...
Alright, a quick summary for Summer MuMmers... it's more or less a Vaudeville show in the Yucca theater in Midland, Texas. The first half is about prehistoric folk who have a bad guy hanging around who takes everything from them. Well, they go and accidentally discover popcorn as a food source. When they bad guy, Ned the Neanderthal, and his sidekick -whose name I am unable to remember, at present- discover the plan, they move to grab every ear of corn in the area in order to flood the market with popcorn, at extremely exorbitant prices. Through a series of misadventures, the good guys eventually win and put the bad guy away.

But, that's only the first half...

The second half continues with singing, dancing, and skits completely unrelated to the first half, many of which are a bit between Vaudeville and and actual Burlesque. Boob's and bodies all over the place, except nearly all of the women were overweight, a few of them very overweight. One show was called "You're An 8", in which a drunk guy goes in to use the urinal, and there's another guy next to him. In order to get his "junk" out, he has to ask the guy next to him to hold his drink. Then, his phone rings, and he asks the guy to hold something else I didn't see, but he actually reaches in front from the other guy's penis. Of course, this is just a joke, no nudity. Then there's "Mama", a Madame dressed like she's from Louisiana, who comes out to give advice to women about men, and there were three or four of those skits, funny. Probably the sexiest girl there was the card girl, the one who carries the cards announcing the name of the next skit -all in slinky red and black. There was also a skit about a cow singing Cuban Pete for a couple of Latino girls whose guys were not paying attention to them.

The absolute funniest part about the whole thing, however, was the popcorn. They brought out grocery bags full of popcorn and, though it was absolutely delicious, perhaps the best popcorn I've ever had, I only got to each about a sixth of a bag... because I was busy throwing the rest at other people, especially my Sarah, who kept trying to get it on my head, in ears, down my shirt, and I kept trying to do the same thing to her. It was amazing fun, but it sure did exhaust us, as well. Check out some Summer MuMers information, here.
 
Alright, let me try to finish answering the next posts...

Praying for your rest...
We forgot our Pillow's at my Brother-in-Law's house, so we had to buy some new ones... I think I got some okay rest, last night, but I'm still pretty spent, just now. Thank you, though.

Scumbag drivers are everywhere. Take a rest man.
You ain't kiddin', but yesterday was really bad. I'm not going to go into it, though, as it will trip my PTSD, LOL... no thanks... just suffice-it-to-say it was nasty.
 
Alright, let me get the main thread split, again, a final change to the XP record I keep on Excel, and write the next post(s). Again, the split should affect NONE of you.

so for clarification sake, we need to find out why this small wyrm made it thus far and back track to find out where it was sent from and that may provide some time for the wizards to find out what is going on with the wraith issue

So we're going back to where the dragon came from?

Sounds like fun. This group will need people of intelligence on this sort of mission...quest...thing.

You could correctly glean that information from what Radagast said... however... Winter is Here! :lol:

So I thought that might be it, but is there any chance we missed something? And I would make a suggestion, if I could, that we find a house to live out of for the winter, we can peruse the library here and ask if we could do the same in the lonely mountain...and if either of the kings needs us for something we could do our best to fulfill that request

That might indeed be something to ask the King about, while he remains...

My friends, it is my intent to move the game forward to the Coronation ceremony, tonight. I'm trying to get Ed's character involved, as well and, though he's told us he's patient and waiting for his time, I think it's rude to leave someone out for too long, especially when the story's not really advancing, anymore. Besides, my calendar is telling me we're at the 72-hour limit this afternoon :P . I hope all of you are having an amazing day, life is treating you well, and you're ready to move the story forward a bit more.

Ready to move on! Coronations are events that require (and inspire) songs! Hopefully Rosco will get a chance to add to his repertoire!

{grin!} Sure, come up with one or two... the actual coronation and dinner may not take all that long, but a little more merriment is normally welcome!

Ready to go.
I'm starting to feel much better, my migraine/nausea that has lasted for the last month or so has finally begin to diminish, so that is an answer to prayer.

Just a quick note Paul.
Are you playing that elves walk on snow rather than sink into it as per the movies?

Pete

Let's go somewhere in-between, hehe. Elves might sink down a few inches and, if there are only a few inches of snow on the ground their feet go to the ground, but they won't sink much more than that.
