Careful. This link is DANGEROUS. Do NOT click it. This one, however, is fine.

I had the meaning of life in my signature, but it exceeded the character limit.

Gah, changed Fosco's fireworks to firecrackers because they're cooler to use

He just (mostly) needs to have a lot less influence. Friend to Gil-Galad? And a adviserto Elrond? That's taking it way too far.
Probably need to take out the bit about a blade forged in Valinor too. That means, more than likely, Feanor made it. OPness ;)

Hey Mike, will there be a stage where we find our own cool(er) weapons and name them?
Or do we have to create it now ;)

Yeah.. just have him be one of the minor Lords of Rivendell. Born in Lindon in the peace resulting from the War of Wrath ;)

As for the Hobbit.. he wouldn't be that well-armed. I'd also leave out the fireworks. I understand why you want to use them, but they aren't very realistic, and wouldn't help much in a battle to the death with some Orcs.

EDIT: You'll get a chance to pick up new weapons and gear at Rivendell. 'til then, you're stuck with your ordinary things. For you, I'd say just have him have a hunting bow and some arrows, having come to Archet for news (being a 'queer Took' 'n all) and getting swept up in our journey.

WoA has Hobbit Rocketeers... which is why mike_ has a grudge against them. ;)

I didn't know about them actually... just hate the idea anyway.

I've done the 'changes' to Fosco
I've just left him with the shortsword and short bow with 20 arrows
How about the Buckler? Does that have to be removed?
And can I add a Med Helm?

I don't want him to be the most useless out of all of us...

Oh, and will we get to participate in some big battles? ;)
Maybe we can add a sort of 'ammunition system' for range attackers, to make it more realistic
Along with a list of our current weapons and armor that can be updated as we go along :lol:

Yeah...no. This isn't Runescape (laughs at yoda). We will get to be part of some larger conflicts later on (I'll be damned if we aren't). Basically, you use logic with your arrows; running out when appropriate/dramatic.

Second.. no sword. He can get an Elvish blade in Rivendell, but not now. There weren't any in the Shire, except for a few decorative (ancient!) blades hung over fireplaces. No helm either. Very un-Hobbit-like ;) maybe way later on (depending on how his story goes) he could pick one up in some far distant country, who knows.

Hmmmm... You said that he was Elrond's thumb, JUST LIKE GLORFINDEL. :lol: Did you see the other errors I brought up? ;)

He was Elrond's left thumb. Elrond's left thumb was much less useful than his right :p. He was just overly willing to fight and Elrond gave him missions that would be suicidal to about 60% of the Rivendell warriors. Elrond had him challenged and tries to foster his abilities. Glorfindel just took everything that would kill everyone but Elrond.

Oh, and Elven, the sword was Belegind's father's sword. He saw the light and was one of the exiles. And yes, I'm going to make him born in Lindon in the early second age. And maybe just a FRIEND of Elrond, not advisor. A general, perhaps, but a lesser one. One of the minor lords in Imladris would be about fitting.

No, but Belegind gets missions that are really hard for him, missions that would be suicidal for about 65%-70% of the other Elves in Rivendell, whilst Glorfindel is off doing stuff that's way harder and suicidal for about 99% of the other Elves. Beleglind is in that 99%. I'm going to ESTIMATE that Beleglind was in the upper 20th percentile.

But what about Fobber Proudfoot (;) I edited my other post :lol:)?

Elrond didn't really have generals.. 'the strength of Rivendell lies in wisdom not weapons'. Glorfindel was the only real commander as such, doing what military errands were needed.

And you still have the not-true bit about Elrond calling for a conclave at Archet..

EDIT: /nitpick

EDITZ: Oh the irony.

EDITZ3: Yargh. Don't really like that Hobbit at all ;) do none of you know what one is?

I still say friend is rather far. Any friends would have been named.

Then how does it go? I'm just trying to put in how I'm interpreting things you say. You said everyone starts out there or something.

And why not have him be Elrond's friend ;)? His friends weren't necessarily named.

Not everyone.. that's just where Matias and I will start, and it would be best to join there too ;) some by coincidence, others on other errands (the Men riding up from the South, etc). Also, I posted a suggestion for you earlier but from the look of things I don't think you saw it :lol:

Yeah. We'll just run into you two (and anyone else with you) on the way, tell you what's up (to our knowledge) and head back to Rivendell. Bam.
