    Do you think we should get involved in the war threads? I've been talking with Anamatar and though we really can't do anything until our leaders get back but we can get a head start to see if theres any interest in this. We could be brought up to speed to be in it and is a great opportunity for us. Guild members only vote here.

    Personally I think we should be in it, but there is still the matter of experienced RPGers, few of us are experienced enough

    No need to start a new rp or talk to Denge, leader of the Dark Legion! There is already a war starting, if you wanna join it is as simple as a few pms. No new rps needed.:)

    We meant our own private non war RP Anamatar. In addition to the war RP of course.

    Oh.:eek:

    Well what should I expect in a thread "War Poll" and the decision on whether or not to go to war....and seeing FREEDOM post in the Dark Legion thread saying he needs to talk to Dengen? No...I actually think he was talking about starting the war.

    I keep hearing all sorts of people talking about this war thing, but I have yet to discover where this(these) thread(s) is(are). And what would joining the war involve, exactly?

    The wars are a bit more than that, actually. They are a structured world: set about a thousand years into the fourth age. This is a war with good against evil, as always but it is not like a regular rp or how Tolkien wrote it, either. But that is hard to explain: it is a war: too sides to each battle. That should give you basic understanding. There are four or five major nations that partake in the war:

    Arnor: just about Arnor in the books.

    Gondor: same

    Arandor: the northern part of Gondor, between Arnor and Gondor.

    White Mountains: same

    Mournclaur: This is the dark forces. It is Mordor and the lands to the east and I think Mirkwood.

    It is the 4 previously mentioned against Mornclaur.

    In each nation there may be governors (the province of Mithlond in Arnor--if Mablung asked he might be the governor there. But since Mithlond is already claimed....).

    I think that is about it. As Mablung said, they are in the serious section, all threads start with a name in quenya "ohta -------".

    First we should figure out where we will be fighting and what sort of purpose we will serve. Then talking to Denegen would be a start.

    It seems you want to enter the war. You don't start posting. No...that is the one thing you can't do. First thing is, you need to decide what you want to do in the war. As I was talking to Mablung about, I would suggest taking the role of the rangers in LotR. Of course you would still be called the Mithril Knights but you would act as the Rangers did. Indeed, the Rangers are already in the war but they are not acting like the Rangers in the books. This is one possibility.

    You can also be elite soldiers of Gondor, or something. First, you have to decide what you want to do.

    The thing that can't happen, unfortunetly, is you guys getting land and starting a kingdom. Most, if not all, land is already claimed.

    Mablung, there is little need to talk with Dengen-Goroth as the Mithril Knights would not be fighting with him but rather against him.:)

    Guys we need to decide if 1) We want to be in this war, if so 2)what will we do?

    I think we should go with the idea of being as the Rangers were in the book.

    Give me your input.

    FREEDOM, please wait before you pm someone. Read mine and Nenya's posts in the Guild of Mithril Knights thread. Nenya will make things more clear in due time (I think so anyways....)

    But, for the sake of answering, you pm Ciryaher telling him that you would like to enter the war and what part you would play in it. But you can't then enter the war:

    then people will have to explain to you everything you need to know for this war. So it will take some time before the Mithril Knights actually enter the wars.
