Current oddities [05 Jan 2003|10:55am]


Just a little tally of NPC's and ground additions to Dol Amroth that my mun has been keeping track of.

There's Ifriel and Hadril who are Elphir's peers. They're nobles and just generally show up the royal family in manners etc. Ifriel apparently spent time with Lothy growing up, and has the hots for Elphir. There's Cook who runs like kitchens like the captain of a ship. Under her are serving lads, junior cooks, dishwashers, etc. But she is most definitely in charge, and tends to treat the nobles like normal kids and not royalty.

I'm sure if there are any more Elphir will correct this in comments.

There is of course Dad's office which is now Elphir's, the great room or main hall, the gate house, the guard hall, the family corridor with all the royals rooms, the guest corridor, and of course the Queen's Garden.

The Queen's Garden is a container garden at the top of the South Tower that was made for Nimruani. It's the only place in the castle not acessible by spies.

I think that's it.

My mun keeps reading poems about the sea, in the correctmistaken belief I would like this.

I feel an urge to pine, except if I look out the window I can see it just fine.

I'll do it anyway.

Sorry this is a large file, but it's the only way to perserve some of the detail.

Found Fiction [08 Dec 2002|12:29pm]


I also found two stories written with Dad in them. No sex though, thank Uinen. Otherwise I would have had to boil my eyes.

When Daddy did good. :) [08 Dec 2002|12:07pm]


"But beyond, in the great fief of Belfalas dwealt Prince Imrahil in his Castle of Dol Amroth by the sea, and he was of high blood, and his folk also, tall men and proud, with sea-grey eyes!" --Return of the King

"...and last and proudest, Imrahil, of Dol Amroth, kinsman of the Lord, bearing guilded banners bearing his token of the Ship and Silver Swan, and a company of Knights in full harness, riding grey horses: and behind them seven hundreds of men-at-arms, tall as lords, grey-eyed, dark-haired, singing as they came!" --Return of the King

This is why mom loved Dad. Or it could be that he cut a dashing figure on horse.

Some boring stuff [08 Dec 2002|12:00pm]


Going through some role play sourcebooks and Tolkien sites Dol Amroth histories and came across some information. Just thought I'd share. :)

"Dol Amroth is the capital of Dor-en-Ernil and with Edhellond one of the most famous ports in Gondor. It was founded with the aid of the Elves in the beginning of the Third Age as Lond Ernil (S. "Princes Haven"). In 1640 T.A. about 10500 people live here, mostly Dunadan and some even with some elvish blood."

Found some city site descriptions too.

White Town
Surrounding the hallowed Cove of the White Ships, which serves as the cities war-barbor, the White Town is the home of the naval warriors and their families. It is also the center of the local woodcraft, sailmaking, armorer industries and the best place to look for skilled craftmen like cartographers. The most famous taverns are the The Turtle-fish and The lost Elf.

Middle Port
The Middle Port is renowned for its ship-building and fishing industries. Here, wrights trained in the ancient Elven shipmaking skills produce the finest sea-going vessels in all of Gondor: the famous White Ships. The Middle Port also houses a lot of related artisans as sailmakers, coopers, carpenters, ropemakers, etc. The major Guildhalls can be found here.

New Port
The New Port is Dol Amroths only open harbor. Larger than the other ports, it accomodates wharf serving visiting vessels and its warehouse and market are capable of handling the city´s tremendous volume of comerce. Inns and taverns are found serving those who wish to avoid the Gate Town or the high prices found in the Castle Quarter.

Gate Town
This is the eastermost and outermost district, lying on the low saddle just inside the main landward entry through the city walls. Being the dirtiest and roudiest neighborhood in Dol Amroth, it is still kept finer than the quarters in most other cities. It is the most colorful distric, but even here street crime is low. The most famous taverns are Arthoniels Tavern, The black Spar and the Sign of the Blind Voyager.

Old Town
The Old Town lays between the Gate Town and the Cliffs and overlooks the New Port. In this distric is the home of the best warriors school in Gondor: Archams School

The Cliffs
Above the Old Town and below the castle quarter is a large series of terraced buildings. The upper reaches cater to the castle garrison and contain numerous taverns and gaming halls. Here is also the Academy of Dol Amroth.

Castle Quarter
The quarter is located on the upper flanks of the Hill, just under the fortress. A short causeway and a pair of drawbridges join this destict to the castles outer bailey. Most of the wealthy make their home here. Also fine inns and taverns are found.

"The city and haven at Copas Haven East of the Hills of Tarnost at cape Belfalas in the province of Gondor; Dor-en-Ernil. The name Dol Amroth also applies to the land around the city and the bay Copas Haven. North-East of the city Dol Amroth was an old Elvish-haven, Edhellond, where the Elves from the Eastside of Hithaeglir could depart from Middle-Earth but it had been long time since the last ship departet from there ( T.A.about year 2000 ). The name of the land derives from the tale of Amroth and Nimrodel and people living there now had Elven blod in there veins. The tales also tells us that it was Sindar-Elves escaping from the sack of Eglarest and Brithombar at the end of the First age who established the haven of Dol-Amroth in Cobas Haven. ( Ut.) Edhellond had been there long before the Elves of Beleriand came down the coast."

I'm not the boy, despite what Elphir would have you believe.
