    -----------------------------------------------

    Name: Plamaya (her family name is Carasylia, but she reveals that to none)

    Age: 17

    Gender: Female

    Race: Human

    Hometown: Not even she knows where she was born, but Plamaya was raised in Rivendell.

    Arms and Weapons: A sword is her weapon. She wears a shirt of mail under her clothes.

    Appearance: Is short, is very slim but not quite skinny. Is altogether small. Has very light, straight blonde hair and vivid green eyes. Always wears some kind of cloak with a hood.

    History: She was found as a toddler on the banks of the Bruinen just outside Rivendell. The Elves of Rivendell took her in and raised her. She learned in Rivendell how to use the bow and sword. Plamaya left when she was 15, hoping to find out something of her mysterious past. She traveled far and wide in Middle-Earth until she discovered that she was the last of a family called Carasylia. They had for ages past battled an ancient evil that awoke and took shape many times during Sauron's reigns.

    Personality: Is reserved and distrustful of most strangers because she is hunted by her family's enemy. Is very stubborn once you get to know her. Always stands by her beliefs. Always helps those in need. Will do nothing that might reveal her true identity except in dire need. Lately she has been feeling more and more like she has the weight of the world on her shoulders, and this stress is causing her to do crazy things at times.

    EDIT: Yay for the new and improved version of Plamaya's profile! :D

    Name: Maegelen

    Race: Elf

    Birthplace: Rivendell

    Appearence: A very lithe 6'4 elf he wears leather armor with Mithril studs poked into it for extra protection and leather leggings without studs over normal garb. On his back is carried a white orante bow and a quiver full of white arrows. At his side is strapped sword in a carved sheath adorned with gems.

    Animal: His steed Lightmane.

    Family: All have left for Valinor.

    Items: A finely tuned lute. His bow and arrows. And his mithril inlaid blade "Galen". A small Iron buckler adorned with leaves and trees of Mithril.

    History: Maegelen was never happy to stay in Rivendell with all of his family. He lusted to see beings of other races more than trees or other elves. After his coming of age he was constantly roaming gone for monthes on end experiencing the wonders that he felt the other elves just couldn't see. When in the halls of Rivendell his passion was composing verses of song which he took to the outside world performing for all whom would listen. When all of his family lef for Valinor he chose to stay unable to leave the beings he had grown so close too. So with only the family sword to remind himself of them he set off into the world where he eventually joined the Mithril Knights.

    I'd like to join, if that's OK.

    Here's my profile:


    Name: Kellivara
    Creature: Half-Drow/Half-Elf
    Age: 25
    Gender: Female
    Place Born: Menzoberanzzan
    Skin: oddly pale

    Looks:
    Hair- waist length, silver, more likely than not put up, slightly wavy.
    Eyes- piercing blue, the color of the sea. change to red and silver at times.
    Height- 5'9
    Other- scar behind right ear.

    Wepons: Sword, Bow & Arrows, Daggers at waist and in each boot, Throwing Stars and Knives, and staff.
    Magic? Yes/No: Yes. Kell can use many types of magic, but to be fair in the RPs, she can only use elemental/barrier magix and telekenesis.

    Family: My mother is an elf of the golden wood, my father was a high ranking drow. My mother, being ashamed, left, and I was therefore raised by my father.
    History: Born in Menzoberanzzan (home of the drow), trained from birth (as all drow are) to be a warrior.

    Personality: Keeps to her self most of the time. Likes to dress in black everything in order to be able to disappear into shadows at will (which she is very good at) and so as not to attract attention to herself. She is especially fond of her black cloak. She is extremely defensive. She never gives up, nor does she back down from a fight, and she will fight every battle to its bitter end. Her trust is hard-earned, but once earned (and kept!) you will definitely benefit from having her as a friend. And she will stay a loyal friend unless her trust is betrayed.

    Appearance: black drow cloak, black leather boots, black clothing, black gloves and guantlets, black mail

    OK.........THAT was a bit lengthly.....sorry.

    Hmm...I see that we have a lot of people involved in this one. I'd just like to peek in, my character doesn't necessarily have to join the quest. But here's the profile anyway:

    Name: Kailita

    Age: 15

    Gender: Female

    Race: Human

    Hometown: Aladanse, Magdala

    Arms and Weapons: Carries a pack of Kachita javelins on her back and a crossbow. Has only a few varied knives hidden on her person for close combat. Also carries a bag of herbs and various healing materials that is often slung across her back.

    Appearance: Wavy auburn hair that falls just below her shoulder blades, but is often pulled back with a scarf. Slender build. Brown eyes with tints of green. Skin darker than fair, but not quite tan.

    History: Kailita left home soon after turning fifteen, the age when children are considered adults in Magdala, wanting to find who she is and where she fits in the world. Her mother is a warrior, her father a healer.

    Personality: Is adventurous (or so she thinks) and friendly. Has actually seen very little of the world outside her human country. Has a kind, compassionate heart and wants to be helpful.

    Magic: None that she knows of...for now, at least...

    Eeeee! *Hugs and dances about* I know, I know, I joined, aren't you proud of me? :D (*is incredibly proud of herself*) I was looking at titles and I saw this one, and took a double-take...because, you know, it didn't exactly make sense if you're using the Kachitish word (Curse of Light?). But now that I've read into it, it makes sense (because it's Plamaya's last name - and there you have another Kachita word! ;) )

    As for where Aladanse is...I haven't the slightest clue, I just made it up, heh. Somewhere in Magdala, relatively close to the Diamond Palace. (Maybe I'll make that where Taryl lives...)

    (Oh, and I knew it was you from the beginning. ;) For one thing, you have a unique writing style...for another, you've told me your name here before.)

    Aw, crumpets, I was hoping to keep you guessing. :) I'm sure everyone else who reads this is very confused...just ignore us, we're ok. :D:D

    Kailita, do you know how to check your pms? I sent u one. (<whspers> and when we're on the forum, you can call me by my Kachitish name, but not my English one, okie dokie?) Most people round here call me HG....

    Tch, yeah right. Tee hee. But, yeah, don't mind us. :)

    Umms...no, don't know how to check my pms yet (I'm still such a newbie! I just joined today, feel sympathy for me!) (Ohmygoshness, LOL, I just realized that that the same abbreviation for Private Messages works for Pre-Menstrual Syndrome...*giggles, then gets a hold of herself* yeah, I'm all right, seriously...*grins*) Anyway...yeah, I still need some help!

    Oh, and as far as names go, it's a ditto. ;) Palinta or Kailita, both work.

    Palinta, you click on the button on the top row of buttons that's always there that says "user cp". Personally I find the user control panel to be the most useful part of the forum. :D

    Banshee, now would be the perfect time for you to introduce your character.

    Ok, from now on, can you guys call Elfhorn by his "new" (Elvish) other name Edhelras? Thanks, he is no different except for his name:)

    Edhelras means "Elfhorn" in Quenya or some Elvish language:)

    Everybody, I know how some of you love to use magic and all, but please, please, keep it to a bare minimum. Reading minds and things like that are really just not fair. I don't mean to sound bossy, but please, let's try to have this rp a little realistic and a little more true to Tolkien's work. Ok? Thanks.

    I know what you mean, I know a lot about the different magics that races use and Elemenal is restricted to all mage races most of the time. Elves would usually use elven magic. Elemental is a bit out of the question. It makes my sorcerer look like an elf if all elfs use Elemental. I mean I can understand if Kellivara uses black magic but all this other stuff is outragous.
