She'd prefer to be a fairy, but please, use the names for whatever you want!! You might want to tinker with the spelling though, as she might come out as Fo ell a, rather than Fee ell a.

So how is it going? Have I been able to get those barrels on yet? By the way, I'd rather my beer didn't have names like Old Newtstrangler.... I'd like them to be called Beer and 3 day Beer. Beer you can drink like it was just coloured water (mainly that's because it is.... damn these pixie brewers) and 3 day because that's the home brew and that's how long it takes to get your sight back..... don't call it blind drunk for nothin'!

I don't do sweet sherry.

Sounds like it's going a blast.....

Ok. I will do what I can...

Troll - if Troll is a Troll, he is the only Troll left in the valley, and has an unseasy truce with the elves, because Troll and Trollbane darned near killed each other. They both collapsed in exhaustion, at the same time, and the other elves merely dragged Trollbane to safety and healing. They will not touch Troll because he fought well and with honour. So Troll stays at his end of the Valley, and they stay in their part of the forest. This is backstory, and will not be told in the story itself. (As far as I know so far...)
The other option is Traoll, a Hermit. Your choice. (I might actually put both of them in, just to conjuse things a little... we will see.) >:)

I have enough Invaders, and I really need Priestesses, Faeries, and Goddesses for the Valley.

Noreen, would it be ok to have your character be Queen of Faerie? But Maeve is almost too normal for that role... Can you come up with something else? Something Gaelli sounding is fine, but not too Shakespearian! She can be neutral at the start, if you like.

The story is actually being told from the perspective of the Valley people, and not much will be known about the Invaders until the end.

I will post a cast list, and the first part of the story, on this site: ~*hesperis*~ Sacred Dance, Sacred Music, and Sacred Story

But I might not be able to get it up until the weekend. I have another allergy treatment tomorrow, and will be gone all day.

Will post again when the pages are up.

AD&D style name: Queen Maeve of Connaught

Alignment - Valley, Neutral or Invaders: Invader
Possible description: Represents feminine power, a Goddess. Her name means "intoxicated woman," or "she who intoxicates"… known for her long golden hair, fiery temperament, and iron will. Often boasted that she could sexually exhaust thirty men each night. Not only a powerful leader, but also an expert warrior, hunter and horsewoman. Has animal attributes, in the form of a bird and a squirrel who perch on her shoulder. She is able to deprive men of their strength simply by her presence. No man in his right mind would upset Queen Maeve…

troll is more an identity than a definition although it could be both.

Subject: RE: BS: Fiction Casting Call
From: GUEST,The Celtic Bard
Date: 23 Jan 01 - 06:59 PM

Here's one. It doesn't totally describe me but oh well!

Name: Azyah Gender: female Preferred Race: elf Preferred Role: woman warrior Alignment: Invaders Description: She's tall and thin. However she is more on the quick side than on the strong side. She has blood-red hair and steel-gray eyes. She might have possible bezerker or bloodlust leanings (not that I'm that way in real life but I thought I would include some characteristics from my current GURPS character). She has a large magic broadsword with a secret name. If anyone else learns the name besides her, she has to kill them because then they could command the sword. The sword also has quick draw which means that all she has to do is hold out her hand and it's there (within reason of course). Plus it has a bunch of spells on it, such as dragonkiller, frost blade, etc. (add whatever you want). She also has a past which makes her do some stuff that normally wouldn't make sense (I'll leave that up to you).

By the way, I write short stories too and developing characters is one of my favorite parts. Normally what I do is focus on one character and just rip them apart; tear into their past, their personality, their motives, etc. Usually at this point, I like to tape myself doing this so that I can remind and listen to it again. Usually that will stimulate my imagination and get me thinking more about my character. I do the same with the plot. Just keep on writing and you'll get better.

Good luck.

Okay, Hesperis, here are some Elvenfolk:

AD&D style name: Hawkwynde Gender: Male Preferred race: Elf Preferred role: Scout, forest tracker, archer, magic-user Alignment - Valley, Neutral or Invaders: Neutral Possible description: Hawkwynde is typical of forest elves in many ways. He is slender, rather tall, angular features, and woodland garb. He is particulary skilled as an archer, and is a consummate guide and tracker. He will guide lost travelers through the forest IF he feels like it, and he senses that there is a good reason to do so. He defends the forest against intruders who would harm the trees or the animals. He has some spell-casting abilities...such as making the player forget that it's a game...among others. He can shape-shift on occasion, transforming into various animals.

AD&D style name: Vesperille Gender: Female Preferred race: Elf Preferred role: Woodland Elf and Dragon Charmer and healer. Alignment - Valley, Neutral or Invaders: Neutral Possible description: Mate to Hawkwynde, Vesperille is far younger looking than her true span of years, and is a skilled Dragon Charmer. She can talk an angry dragon into calming down and having a nice nap or a cup of tea...a very handy skill! She is also a good basic healer, using herbs and common sense, and is handy with most weapons, as are most Elves.

AD&D style name: Trollbane Gender: Male Preferred race: Woodland Elf Preferred role: Chief of local Elf tribe, uncle to Hawkwynde Alignment - Valley, Neutral or Invaders: Neutral Possible description: A very capable warrior Elf, who makes a specialty out of killing trolls and keeping them out of the Forest areas frequented by the Elves. Skilled with the use of all common weapons, but favours the shortsword. Is suspicious of humans, and not so inclined to help them as is his nephew Hawkwynde.

That should do for a start...

Veilebekk - don't worry, her gender is NOT going to be changed! Kinda hard to have a High Priestess who's male! LOL! Elven is a touch I didn't think of for that role, but I like it. Love your description. Veila Lindemere is her full name, ok?

If any mudcatters are wondering who all these guests you've never heard of are, they're friends of mine from another forum.

Meena - some people call me hessy. They say it's because it's close to "hussy". Am I supposed to take that as a compliment? I don't know...

LTS - Would it be ok to use "Phoel Dr'Lo" as "Phoella D'Hollow", a Temple Mage?

Will be posting a cast list soon.

I would like to be Gretchen Mire. She can be of any origin you like, although the goddess complex that prevails hopes she gets to be a goddess cos you said you still needed some. A nasty-ish one, but with some redeeming qualities (let me think about those). Or a mis-led one. Youngish. Perhaps a Morrigan figure? Gretchen Mire, goddess of war and death and disease and nasty insects and things that bite and fog and damp and cold. She will require sacrifices, and likes to lure lusty blacksmiths away from the safety of their nice warm forge. She has the voice of an Angel (the Angel of Death).

Change anything you want Hesperis. He can be a float on character if you like. I only based it on some of the facts of my ancestors because I think they are cool: Lonely castles on the moors, arguments and disownments by Lords and their sons, rebellion, beheadings...that sort of thing.

The main idea was a crotchety old Ghost that is sort of the protector of the clan. He could also act as a messenger/go-between between the worlds of man and faeiry.

Just thoughts.

It is your story.

D&D Basics:
Name: Tycho O'Rourke
Gender: Male
Preferred race: Human
Preferred role: Thief
Alignment - Neutral

Detail & Description:
Tycho is short, clean shaven, valley-born but neutral by virtue of his "trade". Tycho is "in commerce". He owns a mule, (Rufus), who he lavishes care upon. Tycho knows routes into and out of the valley that most others aren't aware of. Tycho is a reasonably accomplished swordsman and has no problem with backstabbing, either physically or politically. By habit he wears quality clothes and is always aware of his personal appearance. He frowns on any activity he deems "bad for trade".

Common phrases:
"I'll only say this once."
"You have a problem with this ?"
"Business is the life-blood of the community."
"Perhaps I could be of assistance in this matter ?"

JAB - I don't think I'll be able to use your ghost character as a full character. For one thing, there are too many real-life things about him. is it ok if I change a few things to fit him in this world?

This world is an 'alternate reality' of Eath, but it's not true DnD, either... I have mixed fantasy and prehistory for the basic idea. I let the Scotti stay in, and made the rest celtic as well, because I know more about Celtic peoples than about Hittites!

NightWing - Perfect! He can be the Hallmaster, and his Owl is WhiteWing.

Re: Trolls and orcs: I think I have enough of these with just Troll. They're rather secretive, and I don't see them as having mixed with other kinds.

I could possibly have a few isolated orcs fleeing from the invaders, and crashing through the Valley, but not as characters.

Dave - I could use another Gnome, and I need shopkeepers. What trade do you want to be in charge of? The Brewery is taken, but I could use a Baker. Whaddya think?

And that's the last Gnome needed, too. I need some human shopkeepers!

Elves so far - Selkie, Hawkwolf, Darkdancer Faeries so far - The Forest Pixie, Caerwyl. MORE NEEDED! (Queen and Consort, and Messenger.) Temple mages so far: NEEDED! (Jande, can I use Lyrra as a younger person, before she left her Temple? Say, 17 years old or so.) Goddesses so far: NEEDED!

Lawful or chaotic doesn't count here, alignment is Valley, Neutral or Invaders.

Well, here's a mage-type for you.

Tall, brown-haired and -bearded, both heavily streaked with gray. Wears many-times patched brown cloak. Almost always accompanied by his familiar, an over-sized Great-Horned Owl. ... Or perhaps he is a skin-changer and the owl his lover? ... None know his name, but he is welcome wherever he goes. Part of his magick is musical, and he sings at every opportunity. In a fine, rich baritone ... it has an odd way of carrying a long way, especially at night.

Och!

I'm James Corscaden Findlater, 7th and last Earl of Findlater, dead these many years and searching for my one true heir!

The Findlater's are proud to be of Clan Ogilvie. The chiefs of this clan derive their name from GilleBride, second son of Ghillechriost, Earl of Angus. The Barony of Ogilvie, in the parish of Glamis, in Angus, was bestowed on this GilleBride by King William the Lion about 1163.

Oh the time I have spent in the ruins of Findlater Castle waiting for the day that my son by Mary, whom I never claimed proper nor bestowed to him his birthright, returned from Americay. Every moment since I rue the words that sent him away from me, and turned Mary's heart to stone in my presence.

Och! the castle is a proper place for me on the barren north shores of Banffshire, near Cullen. My only companion is the Earl of Huntley, it's previous owner beheaded, when his clan rebelled against Mary and were defeated in the Battle of Corrochie. In ruins since the wind and rain provide us little comfort in our misery.

Even though I must return to the castle there are times when suddenly I am drawn away. Drawn to the valley to search for my lost line, and to warn those that I find of the treachery of those that come.

Like troll, trolls axe has no name or special powers. It is just an axe and a highly effective one at that, whether hewing a timber or shortening a life.

She *is* rather attracted to Temple's though... I think she might make a good agent/counter-agent? Whatever you want... Your story. ::grin:: (lovers are cool, too)(or is that... hot...)

I'd like to be Fergal MacIntosh of the Valley People, one-armed Poet/Warrior who lost his sweet young wife and two innocent bairns to a border attack by the hated Scotti, and has sworn vengeance in a blood-oath taken in the remote cave of the Witch Woman Cargalis. I wield a double-bladed beard-axe named Salloch, which warns me of danger, and glows like fire in the heat of battle. My brother, Conner, has aspirations to rule the Valley People after selling us out to the Scotti, but in the mean time butters me up, all the while hoping to steal Salloch while I sleep, lop off my head, and take it to the Scotti as proof of his devotion. I have a hunting dog, Duncan, who follows me everywhere and eats the livers of those slain by me in battle.

Oh, and all of the Valley Women are hot for me, as are most of the Scotti women, and I usually have one hidden under my kilt, which is why I'm called by the nick-name Kelmerdosh..."the One who Smiles All of the Time".

Hesperis: I offer my humble services to your venture allow me to introduce my alter ego for this. > >> Aidan the wanderer, warrior-poet and drunk on occassion. I would say I'm of the invaders but we have some of them already so I could offer my services to the valley dwellers for a nominal fee. If I can't beat 'em with a sword I can out-dirty limerick them. Blond hair blue eyes and i don't look like the warrior type. Fond of mead and wenches. Famous pick up line in the inns i frequent "I'm not the lad your mum warned you about, her mind int that disgustin' Love." Kindest reguards, Irish Sergeant

Can I have Amergin please? Micca could stop a moose at 140 yards with a fart, and even us Valkyrie Gnome maidens need a break now and then.....

Oh, and last orders are when Hell freezes over.....!

Being gnomish, pub grup will consist mainly of fish, caught by my little gnomish friends and rat, caught by my dwarfish lover, Duffle Halfpint. The cook says he's Druish, but I'd bet my tin bra he's Elvish....

Yours, Aethael Ever Ready - goes even longer than the Duracell bunny....
