Ok, if people need to research I'll need details of what they want to know about what; nothing to do with Elf graves, Darvan.

There isn't any action, Argentis. What do you want to do?

Fine, I'll do the graveyard curses Tpt asked for...

Or, if not, I'll give him a day to reply, then Darvan'll get bored and find someting else to do.

Okidokey, looks like we have our basic player pick, in which case this Sunday (hopefully) i'll start the dreaded process of equipping that I have been wanting to avoid, and I'll get that list for Vardalain too.

And boy, there is food being sold EVERYWHERE, Argentis. Let it not be said that the Kingdom of the North does not understand capitalism on a day like this.

In fact, everyone looks happier than you might have imagined, Argentis. You guess being at Baranar dented your spirits somewhat, but even so, you expected there to be more consternation than this.

Elothiel, you actually have received an invite to attend to a room at the Palace in order to receive your due hospitality.

Um, Darvan will go and ask the librarian about them, I guess. wink

And specifically if any were used for elves. But only if he gets a lot of information. If he gets none, or very little, he just lokos through whatever he is given.

Ok, well, if you are referring to the Downs, you are told, then the story is this.

This is to do with the great battle of Amon Sul (Weathertop), the final battle of the Witch-King's first invasion of Arnor, several centuries ago. This had taken a long time, and, through a variety of events, Rhudaur had been eaten away from the inside and taken over by Dunlendings. Cardolan was under invasion- this was back when Cardolan was a strong Kingdom like Arthedan.

Amon Sul was a natural fortress in a commanding position, and was also a home to one of the Palantirs. Each of the three human kingdoms of the North- the remnants of the Rhudaur, and the grand armies of Cardolan and Arthedain, drew up to fight the threat.

Ostensibly, anyway. In fact, the Arthedain army arrived early, stole the palantir, and buggered off before the fighting started. The Arthedanians say the battle was a lost cause and keeping the Palantir safe was the most important thing, but others never forgave them. The battle was lost and Amon Sul destroyed.

After the war, the remaining Cardolani nobility went and hid in the Downs to the west by the old forest- there, they buried their dead.

Now, in the end, the Elves intervened before Cardolan was totally wiped out. However, it never really recovered, and eventually the Great Plague killed the last of the true Dunadan nobility in Cardolan.

However, between the end of the battle at Weathertop and their final death by plague, by tradition the Cardolani buried all their noble dead in those Mounds.

Recently, however, it seems all transit to the Burial Mounds has been forbidden.

None- nothing to do with Elves.

It's banned on order of the King.


Well, you found one, Argentis!

Well, only if he knows you. Darvan will accompany you - but if he thinks he's the only person working, he'll give it up stick out tongue

The King is a tiny tad busy with a. the celebrations and tournament and b. the Traitor plotline (and also with being a King!), so you may have to make enquiries at a lower down level instead.

-

Good meat at a good price, Argentis. Not a sign of a collapsing Kingdom.

EQUIPMENT

Ok, here we go on this.

This was such a pain last time that I am not bothering with the full version this time- instead, I am using a massively cut-down version.

First of all, it is assumed that everyone has enough resources for the following:

Appropriate clothes
Food and other supplies to last a journey.
The means of making fire
The means of making camp
Any non-metallic armour, and a shield if you want it.

And then...

Any one basic (i.e. non-superior) weapon
And in any one scenario, if you have a weapon that needs them, sixty arrows and/or bolts, with a quiver that holds 20, or enough throwing weapons for 10 throws.

---

For better and more expensive equipment, you must save. For every background point you put into a money option, you get 20 gp. For every previous story you completed, you get another 20 gp.

Fornost is a sophisticated city with the great crafts of the Dunadan available, so you can buy lots here.

WEAPONS- Weapons with bonuses are of exceptional craftmanship

Battle Axe: 1.5 gp
+5: 13 gp
+10: 65 gp

Broadsword: 1 gp
+5: 10 gp
+10: 50 gp

Composite Bow: 1.5 gp
+5: 17 gp
+10: 85 gp

Crossbow: 2.5 gp
+5: 25 gp
+10: 125 gp

Dagger: .5 gp
+5 dagger: 3 gp
+10 dagger: 15 gp

Handaxe: as Broadsword

Longbow: 1 gp
+5: 10 gp
+10: 50 gp

Mace: As Broadsword

Lance: As Broadsword

Shortbow: As Broadsword

Shortsword: .5gp
+5: 3.5 gp
+10: 18 gp

Spear: As Broadsword

Two-handed sword: 2gp
+5: 20 gp
+10: 100 gp


ARMOUR- bonuses refer to well-designed armour that reduces the Manoeuvre encumbrance- it does not make them more protective! (THat's very rare)

Metallic greaves for arms and legs: 1 gp

Metal helmet: 1 gp

+5 soft leather: 3 gp
+10 soft leather: 15 gp

+5 rigid leather: 10 gp
+10 rigid leather: 50 gp

Chain: 4 gp
+5 Chain: 40 gp
+10 Chain: 200 gp

Plate: 5 gp
+5 plate: 50 gp
+10 plate: 250 gp


ANIMALS

Beast of burden (to carry equipment): 4 gp

Light Horse: 5 gp
Medium Horse: 6 gp
Heavy Horse: 8 gp

Lesser Warhorse: 20 gp
Greater Warhorse: 75gp

---

There we go!
