Any Silmarillion Fans Out There?

trekqueen, of course! Anyone else?

I just poked my nose back in my old haunt, the Lord of the Rings Plaza. The incredible hive of activity has died down a bit in the waning of the movie buzz, leaving diehards and genuine Tolkien fans. Even in its fading days 7 years after its founding, the plaza is still a huge LOTR community with stuff for everyone from casual/silly fans to lore geeks.

There is one RPG which is a historical reenactment of the Flight of the Noldor, and they need more bodies. Bodies who know and love Elder Days. Bodies who don't mind the fact that it's a family-friendly site (no slash, sowweee) but are willing to play Tolkien straight up.

Fëanor is just about to be killed by Gothmog, as soon as the Balrog logs in, and the sons of Fëanor will hasten up. The GM is in need of Noldor accompanying Fingolfin (can't believe more people aren't hanging out with Fingolfin, Turgon and baby Idril), Sindar to meet the Noldor at Mithrum, all kinds of minor characters, and heck, even named characters... you might even be able to snag Glorfindel, TQ!

Note: the way the plaza works, you just have ONE account, then write NPC: Name at the top of your post (or something like that) if you've got multiple characters. Multiple accounts a no-no.

Interested? Here's the GM's summary in the sign-up thread where you can introduce yourself and ask/suggest a character to RP. Quite possibly, Aig would even be happy for you to offer to play some of the unclaimed named characters, though I don't know which those are.

The sub-forum where the RPG is being hosted is Undying Lands, where we tend to RP Valinor plus origin-stories of the beginning of Middle-earth. The RPG thread is "Destiny's Way".

I haven't warned the GM I'm recruiting, but he's an old hand, and I'm sure he'd be glad of new faces.

Note that I am NOT known as Auronlu there. It should be obvious who I am, but I try never to have my plaza username and this one directly connected, so that the young folks who look up to me as an example (and/or people who know me through the plaza and might be offended) don't stumble across my smut.

Feel free to pass this onto anyone on your Flist for whom it makes sense.
