Also, question: am I allowed in the gaming thread or should I wait it out?

Added in, near the start of the thread, explanations of some old rules references I might have left in in places.

Also added in the Animst spells, some of which are very kickass.

Also replaced the duff character reference for Adventurers (left the Ranger one in by mistake), and put in the proper one that the LOTR Hobbits wer all Adventurers. Not that a Thief is at all unsuitable, Zinky, but William was an Adventurer before on that basis. Happy with what you choose?

I am SO tempted to redo Ellothiel and pick Animist right now. Not like I am, as it stands, really particularly good at anything anyway...heh.

He would use elvish bow and staff as weapons, as well as soft leather armor.

How about this character? He would be a really young elf from Rivendell, kind-hearted, a bit naive and curious about the world around him. Perhaps a friend of Ellothiel?

Hmm, what kind of reason my character has to be at the tournament....

I can`t find the backgrounds of other elven characters, I assume we are on a mission together, sent by Elrond or Galadriel?

Lord no! Elrond has informally asked any Elves from Rivendell to act as Observers, but any Elf there has come to Arthedain for personal reasons. The number one hook I have for you is that King Arvedui has asked representatives from the free nations to come and see Arthedain's struggle first hand.

It is important that I specify that, because no Elvish nation is taking any official part in the struggle. As it stands, Arthedain is on its own.

Okay, so I am from Rivendell, Elladil is the youngest elf there and was really eager to learn more about humans. He still has the enthusiasm and drive to learn that most elves have abandomed long ago, since the fall of the Noldor kingdoms. So far he has mostly studied the natural world of animals and plants, now the time has come to see more of the world. Though would someone not experienced be sent alone?

I seem to remember the men of Gondor having come as a means of trying to unify the two nations?

There is a certain faction in Gondor interested in renewed ties. It's a very small faction but is boosted by the King being amenable to it.

It's always fraught, of course, because it is well known that Arvedui made claim to Gondor's crown.
