I am sad to hear that you cannot debate Snaga...but I can understand your dillemma as it is something I share. I have neither the time nor the talent to debate...so I will leave that to my other guild mates. If you want Aule...I'll take on the role of judge for the tournament and you can debate....I would be willing to do that if that will helps to bring our team to victory.



PS...Elberethians??? :confused: :rolleyes: That kind of jab was just petty. The Periaurs are too independent to be followers...and beleive me, I doubt I would be the object of their devotion.

Well,the things are becomming more and more interesting.GoO seems to be favorites for the Tournament,especially if Nom is the main representative,not a replacement.
Beleg is also a member of GoS so it depends on him,which Guild will choose him.
But also do not forget your talented Vala-Aule,he is sitting in the corner,waiting to be asked to represent GoP.

Elbereth,what is the situation with GoP's representative and his/her replacemnts.
As I can see you do not have muc opportunities :Aule,you,Legolam,Niniel,and of course Beleg(who should decide whether he will debate for you or for GoS if they invite him)

Although I am the Guild Leader, I am not responsible for the guild debates...I have left that responsibility to Aule, the Guild of Periaur's manager of debates. I am leaving him with the ultimate executive decision as to who should debate in this tournament.

If they are willing and able to debate, I would recommend Aule and Niniel to represent the team. Both candidates are strong and experienced debators of high calibre...and I have faith they will represent the guild well.

As for myself....I am not willing to throw myself into such a competion. As I have said earlier...I do not have the time nor the desire to join in a debate. And based on my poor showing at my last debate, I am sure my fellow guild members are relieved to hear it.

Elbereth: I really would prefer not to commit myself to this tournament, since I am going to become overloaded with work in March. But since no one else seems to be putting up their hand, I guess I'll have to do it.

We can help you Aulë... you can always ask us if we have any more arguments or if we can look something up for you if you don't have time... It's just I think that you are more eloquent than me when it comes to debating, you just know how to say things in a convincing way (more than me).

Wonks has volunteered to debate :)
Wonks shall be the #1 debator, and Niniel will be her replacement.

Yay! :D

I would like to ask Niniel to replace Wonks ASAP.

If GoP's member does not took part in the round I am afraid that their opponents will take the three points which are given for a win.

If there is a problem with Wonk and Niniel,you still have time to replace them.
Please do it as soon as possible.
