I’m on a mailing list for a major role-playing event currently being planned by a group of Tolkien fans. If you wish to help out in any way by making a suggestion or by offering more hands-on assistance, or if you’d like to get on the list for more info, email Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am writing to you because you have all expressed interest in the project that Craig and I are working on. A couple of you have e-mailed me, and others I have met at ringbearer. In either case, you know that we are working on getting a real LOTR-RPG together in West Virginia. Yes, we have a location! 🙂 Craig knows more than I do about this subject (which park it is, etc), but it will be in a woody gorge. Hopefully you won’t be able to see anything outside of it, thus enhancing your middle-earth experience.
We are currently working on a storyline, though. I recently spoke to Craig over the phone, and he expressed his main idea. It would take place after the hobbits ran into Gildor and the elves. Gildor has sent out the message to look for Frodo and his friends, and to help them in any way possible. You are the elves, and you must find Frodo.. however, it’s not so easy as it seems. We will set up people in certain locations, i.e. the Green Dragaon Inn, or the Prancing Pony even, etc. You must find these people, and they give you clues to tracking down Frodo. It will involve a LOT of trekking around…
Back to the storyline, that’s about all we have so far. We’re brainstorming like mad, though. Could you guys help us out? I know it’s an awfully busy time for most, and Craig and I are busy, too. We don’t know when this may happen, but we’re trying to get it to be September 22nd, of a year or more (depending on circumstance) from now. Maybe even Autumn of 2001.. how does that sound?? 🙂 Perfect prelude to the movies, and it’ll get you excited, all right!
We are quite serious about this, so if you can help us in anyway you can, you’re in! We need all the help we can get. Write back, please! Elen sila lumenn’ omentielvo!
No more $15/month plan for LOTRO later this year.
