    I think this Bain is the heir of Bard, slayer of Smaug. Dale should be the the landscape around Erebor and Esgaroth. The city we are now, should be the new Lake town, rebuilt after the last havoc of Smaug. Or did these people start to live somewhere after the ending of The Hobbit?

    Rather sure this time...

    That is a rather normal way to represent a King in the Tolkienian writings

    w00t. Somebody give Turambar a cookie. :D

    I would think they rebuilt Lake Town after the destuction, since LOTR does discuss Dale men.

    No shame reading it again... Everyone reads it from time to time. Even after all those years it's still great fun to read.

    Besides, we can keep those less familiar with Tolkien up to speed in this section...

    Okay, I changed my story, now in this castle I'll be in the cells, I was caught by elves wandering in mirkwood and aent to bain to deal with as I'm human. So they jsut shoved the crazy old man in the cells.

    the twist is i got on this side oft he misty mountain through moria (dont ask how, im an old man i dont remember how) so you can pick me up as a guide.

    Okay there are far too many inconsitencies with me being bungled in the dungeons so thats no longer an option.

    maybe I'll just fall out of a tree onto nik as soon as you guys set off.

    so he got some bad information, my guy's a nomad he's none the wiser, just trying to progress things, and think of how surprised he'll be when he find's out he's wrong...

    That wont help much, Toell is a bit to old to realise he cant fall off trees onto people not under them.

    Okay... I wanted some action in this RPG, so.. I introduced some action. Enjoy!

    If anyone is wondering, Tr****r was blocked, strangely enough... it was saying t r a i t o r.

    Edit:
    oh, and Karim is just an NPC I needed... I am not really controlling him.

    me too, so for the sake of us lets get it moving people, you probably need to be further from civilisation to meet toell.
