003-TA2946 end of year (1st Fellowship Phase)
After the wake, having slept in your rooms in the Guest-house, although it is still summer, you feel weary and start to wonder as to where your steps will take you next…  although you somehow know that you will be meeting soon, for you feel that your Company is formed and will gather to face the Shadow together.

OOC:  post here for what you wish to discuss IC as to where to go for the Fellowship Phases.  We will be having two of them, so you can decide to do things for a shorter period of time (till late fall, early Winter - the two phases then being end of Summer and Fall) or for a long period, meeting in early Spring (then the phases will be all Fall and Winter).
You will be meeting in Beorn's Hall or the Easterly Inn for the next adventure.

On the morning after the Wake, well, late in the morning - with people still snoring here and there in the Hall -, Ennalda comes to you:  "So, fellows, valiant Wanderers, what is the name of the Company you seem to have formed?"

OOC:  if you wish to find a name for your Company

As you think of the fact you are indeed now a Company, and that you all feel as though meeting again would be a good thing, even if you go your separate ways for now, you start talking of where your paths will take you for the following weeks at least.

Bern talked of having his spear forged anew, of returning to Dale to do so - but Brandoin and Bés had told him of their skills at the Forges, and the fact the Erebor has mighty smithing halls - so maybe all three would travel East through Mirkwood, in which case they could imagine Shalronel traveling with them to her kin's Halls at least…  and did Andwise not wish to discover Dale and Erebor?
Berengar looked on, and one could wonder if he would remain here, in his lands, to see to his family?

OOC:  to see where you wish to discuss going during your Fellowship Phases

Shalronel looks around at the group, "I do not know if we have discussed a name for the group." she says to Ennalda as she looks around at the group.  "I am needing to head back to my homeland for awhile." she says, wondering what the rest of the group wants to do.

As Shalronel stated she was heading back to her homeland for awhile, the rest of the group also spoke up, and soon, as Summer ended the Company parted ways.
Andwise packed his belongings, and decided to go West, to the Shire - your hearts hoped all would be well as the Hobbit left on his own for this long trek across the Misty Mountains, his head soon disappearing in the high grass South of Beorn's Hall.
Berangar was to remain in his lands, with his kin and his family, thus staying in Beorn's Hall for now.
Led by Bés, the remaining four of you - and Blackwing - set out North, spending a night at the Easterly Inn, where you saw Dindy and Agatha both, who seemed to be doing a bit better, before taking the road through Mirkwood.
Shalronel left you at the Eastern-side of the Forest, going to spend the Winter in her Kingdom, but making sure you all got fresh water and food.
Then you moved on to Lake-town, and from there up to Dale, where Bern remained…  as the two Dwarves headed on up to Erebor.

Andwise spent Fall and Winter in the Shire, being named Marshall, he spent several weeks of that "beating the bounds" and Orc-tracking.

Berangar remained in his lands, in dealings with Beorn's folk and even Beorn himself, regarding the matters that would see you all returning together as a Company in the Spring of the New Year.

Shalronel spent nearly all the time in the Woodland Realm, in the King's Halls even, except for a fortnight towards the end of November, when the Queen-mother Dieneryn asked her, in her role as an envoy, to take part in a delegation of Elves sent by Thranduil to Dale.

Bern spent his Fall and Winter in Dale, where, in the last days of November, came the fifth anniversary of the Battle of Five Armies.  For the first time since the grand victory, a great feast was held in Dale, the newly-rebuilt town.
Where King Bard hosted the celebrations.
People from all neighbouring lands are came to participate in the revels, as the feast had been arranged to coincide with local celebrations held for the end of the harvest season and the beginning of the colder months of the year.
It was a few days of great fun and joy and grand parties.

Bés and Brandoin escaped from their endeavors in Erebor to attend also.
Brandoin and Blackwing marveling at all the beauty in the streets, the fine festive arrangements, the food, the drink…

Bés, on the other hand, had come - in her quality of Grandmaster - with her father Balin, who was Dáin's Envoy from the Kingdom under the Mountain, and attended most of the Council of the North, though she was not to speak much, simply to observe.
Thus she met Shalronel, who was in the same position, accompanying Thranduil's Envoy from the Woodland Realm.
Meeting with King Bard, there was one more Envoy, the one from Lake-town.
This new Council of the North had met to debate matters concerning Wilderland. Shalronel and Bés attended most meetings, other than the closed chambers ones, where only Bard and the Envoys were admitted, and their feeling was that though important, for it meant the Free Peoples were still sharing information and good-will, it did not seem as many decisions were made.

Though Bern was not to attend this meetings, his new position as respected citizen of Dale made it so that he knew which groups were meeting, and the general drift of this Council.

Thus ended TA2946.

In the very early Spring of 2947, Brandoin and Bés set out together, to go see Bern in Dale, and find out how their friend was faring.
Their thought was that they might even travel across the Forest with him, towards the Easterly Inn.

In Dale, Brandoin and Bés were brought to meet with Bern, who, they found out, had joined the prestigious Royal-guard, and was one of the King's Men.
