    NOTE: Frodo is like 100 somthing in the book...
    So, If you don't mind, could we stay more true to the book than what he looked in the movie...? Just a thought.

    Seek for the Sword that was broken
    In Imladris it dwells;
    There shall be counsels taken
    Stronger than Morgul-spells.
    There shall be shown a token
    That Doom is near at hand,
    For Isildur's Bane shall waken,
    And the Halfling forth shall stand.

    All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
    A light from the shadows shall spring;
    Renewed shall be blade that was broken:
    The crownless again shall be king.

    I haven't ever done an RPG before ... Hope this character hasn't been taken yet.

    Name:Elrond of Rivendale
    Age: over 6, 500 years ...
    Gender: Male
    Race: Half-Elven
    Bio: Born around 525 in Arvernien, Elrond is married to Celebrian, daughter of Celeborn and Galadriel. He was able to chose which race he wanted to belong to after the War of Wrath and instead of chosing to belong to the race of men, he chose to be Elvish. Elrond founded Rivendell (also known as Imladris) after Sauron's invasions in the Second Age. He granted refuge to the mother of Aragon and is "foster father" to him. His daughter, Arwen is in love with Aragon. Known for his great wisdom, he is keeper of the ring known as Vilya.

    I'm definetly going to join!

    Name: Nevatar
    Age: 1,050
    Gender: Male
    Race: Dark-Elf
    Bio: Abandoned at birth, he grew up in a home he did not know of, for he left to go to Middle-Earth. He did not see the " Light of Illuvitar, therefore he became a Dark-Elf. He works for both sides, right now working with Saruman's Uruk-Hai army, but is beginning to doubt Saruman......

    I thought I'd add my weapons.

    Weapons: Elven bow, Gondorian sword, ( got it off some dead soldier) Elven hunting knife

    Now, you're probably all wondering where Tolkien mentioned a Dark-Elf. Tolkien mentioned them in The Silmarillion. The only thing about them is that they ".. did not see the Light of Illuvitar."
    We'll go by the Everquest description, where they all have grey skin.

    uh, the person that is playing as Aragorn got the age wrong, he is 87. That was bugging me ;) :p


    Name: Eomer
    Age: 27
    Gender: Male
    Race: Human
    Bio: 18th King of Rohan, lived 2991 TA-63 FA, reigned 3019 TA-63 FA; son of Théodwyn and Éomund; nephew of Théoden

    Éomer, whose father Éomund was the Marshal of the Eastfold of Rohan, lost his parents early in his life, and was taken into the personal care of King Théoden, along with his sister Éowyn. He and the slightly older son of the King, Théodred, soon became good friends, even though Gríma Wormtongue, counselor of Théoden, tried to convince the King that Éomer was only after the throne himself and would be a dangerous imposter to his son. These intrigues of Wormtongue made life for Éomer and his sister harder than it would have otherwise already been.

    So, when Éomer became Third Marshal of the Riddermark already in 3017, he most often took his leave to hunt down the gathering enemies and orcs with his fellow soldiers far away from Edoras, where the King was sitting and being made to believe those very orcs were his allies. With the death of Théodred at the fords of the Isen, Éomer practically became the highest military leader of the Rohirrim, and the military head of command.

    By the time members of the Fellowship of the Ring entered Rohan, Éomer's fate became intertwined with theirs: the sortie of Uruk-Hai from Isengard under the lead of Úgluk was surrounded by Éomer and his men, and wiped out entirely, giving the captives Merry and Pippin the chance to escape.

    After that, they came across the three hunters Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas, who were pursuing the orcs as well, and like Aragorn seemed to perceive the valour of the towering and flaxen young Marshal, so Éomer proved his sense when he realized the noble honesty of Aragorn and the importance of his errand, when he aided him and gave them three spare horses from his éored.

    For that, he was imprisoned back in Edoras at the command of Wormtongue, for disobeying the orders of the King. But when Gandalf the White came to Meduseld shortly after, and healed the King from the shadow that had passed over him, Éomer was freed, and Théoden acknowledged his actual loyalty to the King and to Rohan, and rode to defend Helm's Deep, where Éomer had the actual command.

    Éomer drew his sword Gúthwine ('friend in battle') together with Aragorn both there in the victorious charge beyond the Deeping Wall, and later in the daring charge of his first éored into the Pelennor to turn the tide.

    With his last words, the fallen Théoden named Éomer his successor there, and he started a new third line of Kings of the Mark.

    After the downfall of Sauron, Éomer married Lothíriel, daughter of Imrahil of Dol Amroth, who, like King Elessar, was one with whom he had went throught the hardships of the War of the Ring and so had become friends. Though the reign of Éomer was peaceful and prosperous for Rohan, these three often went to war even beyond Rhûn and Harad to purge the last remnants of the armies of the Dark Lord, and bring peace to those wild countries.

    His last days of life Éomer spent with his old friend from the Shire, Meriadoc Brandybuck, who was called Holdwine among the Rohirrim. When he died at the respectable age of 93, in the 63rd year of the Fourth Age, and started a new line of grave mounds in Edoras, Éomer, then known as Eadig, 'the happy', was succeeded by his son Elfwine, who was able to continue his father's good reign and was soon called the Fair.



    Hope that's good enough :D

    Read The Fellowship of the Ring again. Frodo IS 50 years old. The only reason Aragonr is 87 is because he is one of the Dúnedien (Did I spell that right?), Men blessed with long life.
