Eagil was reporting back to Lothlorien, he had little else to do. When they advanced at the orc's a black arrow passed trough his arm, and now it had worsened. The poison had been drawn forth, yet he was to weak to walk and was forced to stay in the feild hospital for another day.
He decieded that when he was able, he would take a few compainons and get fully restored in Lorien.
For now he would wait.

" cool" Farlain thought. Lothlorien is where my great cousin Gimli once trod, Farlain limped past the elves towards his horse. A black arrow of Morgul had pierced through his foot, He had followed Eagil since the elf was injured as well.

They rode on for another hour in the darkness. Necronum was unable to see the low branch ahead of him which threw him off his horse and held him in the air by his cloak. The others rode on for a few more feet before realizing what had happened. After they help him off the branch, he says only one thing before riding off again, "This never happened..." They ride quickly across a strip of land bridging the Deep Fosse to the north and into the Flets of the Galadrim.

Re: The Hammer of the Underworld (oh! I love it!)

*It was only her eyes that showed what she though. Looking to Necro. she tries to be heard over the sound of the horses.* How much farther tell we are there? *It was now too dark to keep up a good pace, only she could see well enough, but that wouldn't help the others much.* Perhaps we should walk if not make camp. We would not want anything else to not happen.

"We should before one of these trees 'mysteriously' hits you as well." They stop and make camp. "It is another twelve miles afore we reach our destination." Celegorm informed them. Necronum's eyes had turned red to compensate for the darkness. It would seem that seeing in shades of crimson was more efficient than pure black.

*Gracefully dismounting, Estelmeoi stretched tight legs and reached to pull her bag down.* Only twelve miles... this should be a good place to rest a while then. We don't want to look like common travelers when we get there. *Sparkling eyes glanced around looking for a place to set her things and tie down their horses. The air was calm and cool, bright stars could be seen in the dark sky and nothing felt wrong about this place. After seeing to their rides, she spread out her blanket, set her things on it and started to collect wood for a small fire.*

And then he ignited the dry wood with his LASER VISION! HAHA!

"It has been many a year since I was last here. I even wonder if they kept my things safe, for if they had I would wish to make use of them. I have not used Celestial Fire in battle for a long time, and I do not wish my armor to rust. However I doubt black steel is going to decay anytime soon." He lays back on the cold, hard ground and somehow finds comfort in this.

sounds like SOMEONE'S haveing fun!

You must remember though, I fight, but I can not be the one to take life... *Her eyes were staring to close as she fell asleep curled up on her bed. The fire now burned warmly and Celegrom was on watch.* Unless you want my healing to fade... I will not let you battle without me there... but I can not risk that fate while you still insist on fighting carelessly... You should know that much...

You're darn tootin!

"I shall endevour to keep you out of battle as much as possible. However, you are far too persistant to do so effectivly. I don't know why I still cling to my old posessions. The armor and weapons I have now more than satisfy me, and yet I still feel incomplete without my father's sword and the armor I was given on my twentieth turning, just days after I completed my training. But hopefully it will be returned when I request it." Necronum quietly falls into a deep slumber with his head rested against a rock and his body lying still on the cold, damp ground.

*Hmm which is faster to Lothlorien the woods or the plain?*Nah woods* Farlain stumbled through the woods hitting low branches, tripping over fallen logs. It was a nightmare. After walking for Days he walked by a camp. * Horses, Orcs don't use horses!* He walked in, and two swords were held to his throat, "Ehem You know curtesy is not stick swords at em but welcome them!" Still with swords at his throat he sat at a fallen log. " *Mumbles things god enough to have a head cut off* Stinkin Soldiers darn too protective if you ask me."

*In a voice that almost sounded like a growl...* "Who are you and why are you here?" *Her eyes flashed in the darkness. Had he been following them? Perhaps he was a... she pointed her blade at the vain in his neck.* "Are you a spy? Be careful what you say fool. It may be your last."

The tree reaches down it's mighty branch and catapults Estelmeoi a good fifty feet

Making no move to speak, he sheathes one of his blades and presses the edge of the other closer to his carotid artery. The sun begins to rise over the trees as his eyes begin to fade back to their normal, jet black color, and the sunlight shown off the threads of Mithril in his armour, creating a beautiful sparkling sight that warmed the air around it. The calm breeze blew his hair and that of his companions creating a very peaceful environment were it not for the situation.

WHAT?! ouch... sorry!

*She froze where she was. Speeking to Nec. in her mind~ "I am sorry my lord, should I try not to be what I am? If this is a friend he is safe. If not, do as you will."~ *She started to pull back to let him take charge. Breathing deeply of the dawn air and fealing the sun warm her, she started to think what would now need done. They where so close, yet this might have chainged things... she hoped not.*

Sheathing his other sword, he speaks out loud. "I refuse to kill something so weak and defensless. We should continue on while the day is young." He walks off and fetches the horses. He hopes that there will be fewer distractions in the future.

*Glaring for a moment, she puts her things back in her pack and prepares for another day of ridding. She wanted to say something, but was unable to get the words to sound right. She mounted quietly and waited for Neco. to take the lead. It was not a good time to upset him now, she knew that well enough.*

The begin to ride onward, the wind blowing at their backs, pushing them along their trail as it whistles through the trees behind them. Within hours they are able to see Caras Galadon in the distance.

*She had stayed silent all this time letting her mind wander over what she knew and what she had yet to learn. Somehow she felt that something would not go well, but hopped she was wrong. She looked up from her thoughts to glance at her friend. She had been the fool, could he forgive her that? Ah well, it was not the first time, why had she not remembered... They rode for a while still in silence... *

They rode into the pavilion, greeted by several Elves to took their horses to a stable and escorted them to Celeborn and Galadriel. Necronum approaches them solemnly as Celegorm rests on a knee as if he were awaiting something that would require him to jump into action. "Why have I been summoned? Is their a petty errand you will not stoop so low as to perform that you would call me forth?" Ignoring his attitude and snide comments Celeborn informs them of the situation, "I have called you here because I need you and a small group to find a certain artifact before Sauron does. Should he find this it will not matter if he has the ring or not he will gain enough power to take a physical form once more, and destroy the free peoples of Middle-Earth." Necronum was still not pleased. "Let me guess you need me to risk the lives of my men and companions to attempt to find this artifact under your orders? I will accept under two conditions: That it will be more than my resources used to recover it and that what is mine is returned to me." "Very well, there were others to undergo this with you anyway, but as for your... possesions, they are being stored nearby, I will have you escorted to them and have your friends here escorted to their quarters." With that they are led away and it is silent once more.

*It was hard for her to not wander away from her guide. This was a beautiful place to see. When shown to her room, she thanked the Elf and walked around looking at all that was there. The walls were mostly open to the air and as she stood gazing out, a lightly scented breeze brushed past her face making her close her eyes and breath in deeply of the peace. It would be some time tell their meeting, and the bed was soft and warm from the sunlight that fell over it. She had not slept like this before, only a shadow of a dream caused her to stir.*

He was now standing atop a white tower, contrasting heavily with his plated armor. It was solid, the breastplate was made up of interlocking plates overlain with a solid sheet on black-steel, with the pauldrons being large, round, thick, and a row of spikes ran from beside his head down towards the arm, stopping just before reaching a flat angle, and a single row of curved spikes running down his back. The gauntlets were much like the breastplate except they linked to the breastplate with a thin leather sleeve, reinforced with black-steel studs. His greaves were made up of several, thick black-steel cones that were stacked, upsidedown, locking downward to his boots and were elongated at their outside edges to form sharp spikes, and his boots were solid black-steel which connected to the boots with thick leather sleeve and reinforced with metal plating. Along with the dark color were red stains that were put at many areas that were it not obviously paint would appear to be blood. The single sword was long, a little under four feet and relatively thin. It was insanely sharp and the color of dry iron. The hilt fell back on its ends, providing a secondary blade over the knuckle, and was inset with a single, medium sized ruby where the blade meets the hilt. It's name was Celestial Fire, the legendary blade of Nùmenor. He stared over the city of Lòthlorien with extreme scorn and the memories of his past began to haunt him, bringing him to a mood of extreme hate.
