::shrug:: I don't really have any plans for Folcmund, actually. The way I do things is I give my characters a reason to be around, then work with whatever comes along as the story develops. []

He'd probably have a hard time reaching the Hornburg since there are Dunlendings all over the place down there. But if you want me to try...

If it should work at all, it would be in stages - B.&Co wants to go north, F. persuades them to try to go south, they go south for a while and then realise they can't, but at least they are far enough south to meet the dwarf.

It doesn't make a lot of sense to me, though.
Why would F. turn back when once he had started trying to get to his King?
We would have to get a good reason first.
What do you think?

Do you mean it makes sense to you?
Would it make sense that we have to give up?

Am is pretty likely to go wherever anyone else is going. After all, her other choice is wandering off on her own, without any direction whatsoever.... []

And Folcmund might then decide that since he can't join his King anyway, because of this obstacle which we will work out later, he may as well make sure that this little obstinate group that insists on going through enemy territory in times of war (i.e. through Dunland towards the Shire), gets through safely?

What about me 'n my doggie? How do you think we should "happen" upon B & Co or F & Co?

I have no ideas, but I want it to be sort of original... []

B & Co will finish our evening meal, then, and I believe Alcaira will have some comment on the facts I've given her. (It's funny this, I know nearly as much about her history as she does, because we both only know what my parents told us separately.)
We will then discover that the horse is back, and then settle for the night.
The next morning we will decide not to try to go through Fangorn Forest (which frightens us even more than the war), but to try to go through the Gap of Rohan.

I don't know which company Raedyn & doggie should stumble upon. Anyone else got ideas?

Edit:
We've also got Ilandra still stuck in the village. I've encouraged her to make an effort and get out, perhaps finding useful items on the way. She's got a horse, so she can catch up on us, even if we get a bit ahead of her.

I think thats what should happen also. Though this time I think "tomorrow" should be way shorter than the first day was! B & Co, F & Co and Raedyn & doggie should meet soon, hopefully before B & Co start off on their long journey. What do all of you think?

The Co half of F & Co thinks that this plan is a good one. If, in fact, these groups were not to meet prior to B & Cos departure on their journey, it could get pretty convoluted trying to bring them together at some point later on.

I would post, but I was waiting for a response. If one does not come soon, I'll probably post anyhow.

Also, how did we get to being called Co.? Now I have no name? What is this?! [] []

I sit for a couple of hours with my computer on stand by, with nothing happening TARP-wise. Then I'm invited for coffee and disappear for about an hour - that's the signal for the TARP activity to begin! []

Baru & Co are Baru, Alcaira and Elyaliel - that's why there is a whole Company. Then there are the other companies as well, only none of those have more than two people!

And when we start keyboard saving, it then boils down to B & Co []

Good to see you, Eöl! I'm going to be a bit busy myself over the next day or so, but hopefully we'll pull through. The good bit of being so separate just now, is that one group can be active while another is thinking ...

It really needs to happen before we get to the Gap of Rohan.
Perhaps it's better if Folcmund & Am and Raedyn & doggie meet first (leaves me some time tomorrow when I don't have to answer), and then they come upon Baru, Alcaira & Elyaliel after that.

Ilandra can choose whether she wants to meet the group of four or the group of three.

The group of four may already be on the day that is "tomorrow" to the three, there is no need to put in a night's camp if the story does not naturally lead into it.

That can work...if Folcmund & Am will actually start moving... []

Here's an idea: What if I don't tell you that I'm blind, then you find out some weird way?

Folcmund(angry): Hey! Watch out! You ran right in front of the horse! What are you blind or something?
Raedyn: Yeah, actually, I am...


[] []

Éomer, you and Andreth can decide how you want to do it...I have no ideas right now...

A pity about your sword, Eöl - but I like the irony in your telling about it!

Who is behind you? Or is that a secret for now?

I should try to post myself soon, and get my little group safely to bed (no, I won't tuck around them, though) []

It depends a bit on what you will do about these caves of yours. You may discover them, only to find that the entrance is blocked by the King being besieged by the enemy. Or you may just reach it before the siege starts - Eomer, would that be feasible?

We will not be able to explore them with you, I'm afraid - by the time we get there, the siege will certainly have started. So maybe you're on your way home, then, proud like anything on earth to prove your doubting comrades wrong.

If Eomer thinks it's reasonable (PM him if necessary), you could find the caves while we are gathering the group.

E.:
You could go into the caves - and then, when you were going to get out, find that a war and a siege had just started, and that you might have some trouble getting out.
