    The Story
    In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in The Hobbit. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Game
    Basically, you play out the three books/movies over the course of the 3 RPGs. The good guys fight the bad guys and vice-versa. You journey through Middle-Earth. The way I see it, we can do 1 chapter per week. I'll post the Chapter and a summary, and then we'll play out the events.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Characters

    Good
    The Wise Old Wizard - Xanatos90
    The Wayward King -
    The Skillful Elf -
    The Confident Dwarf -
    The Ring Bearer -
    *The Ring Bearer's Friends -

    Evil
    The Dark Lord -
    Orcs,Uruk-Hai, etc. -
    The Nazgul -
    The Evil Wizard -
    The Jealous Guide -
    *Trolls, Goblins -

    Characters marked by a asterik (*) will be played by someone whose character does not take part in the events of that scene. For instance, if it is the fight between Aragorn and the Hobbits against the 9 Nazgul, I could play the Hobbits, because Gandalf is not present in that scene.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To join, copy and paste the character section and post it with your name beside the character you choose.

    Non-player characters. Basically, they're just there. The GM of the RPG takes care of them and any actions required by them.

    One question:

    Will it follow the same exact storyline as the books or movies?

    Not exactly, I suppose. But it will contain the same main events, characters, and outline as the story.

    Characters: Re-revised
    Good
    Gandalf - Xanatos90
    Aragorn - Darth-Inferno
    Legolas -
    Gimli -
    Frodo -
    Sam -

    It will be a lot easier to let the forces of evil be NPCs, due to their vast amounts and minor rolls. If more people want to join, I might add a Hobbit or two. Once we get to The Two Towers, I will add Theoden and whomever else seems necessary.

    I suppose I'll be Legolas just so I can knock the crap outta people with arrows.

    Gimli certainly kicks some butt on the video games. I got back into playing the Two Towers one Xbox, and he cuts a path right through the sea of orcs. [face_devil]

    If you mean The Thrid Age, I didn't really like that game.

    Can I add Arwen and be her?
    If not, I want Sam, as he is the real hero throughout the course of the movies.

    I just thought of something: What about Elrond? He plays a large part and should be included.
