Re: OOC-Various messages
Well, if you do not want to gain reputation with your people, do not.
As for why a person might want to have a higher reputation, one of the reasons would be to have more responsibility.
For Shalronel, for example, it would be to be seen as getting things done and thus acquiring Standing with the Elf-king's counselors, getting to be trusted and become privy to the secrets of Thranduil's politics, maybe becoming a counselor herself…
For Berangar it could be becoming one of Beorn's Thanes and such.

As we talked about, I too find the pure translation of money spent to Standing not that great, but in game mechanics they mean it to represent an impact on your society (a gift to Thranduil, spending money to bring more wine in from Dorwinion via Lake-town, and, I guess, a symbol of how successful your mission went) thus I will try to use other elements to raise your Reputation (successful missions and such).

re. raising Standing with one's own Culture and not others, that is simple:  so long as you are not accepted by another Culture, they do not give you Standing…  but, if they take you in as one of their's, then your Standing applies there too.
(if you become Heroes to the Beornings, then they will trust you and see you as Respectable and such).

@all:  so, no one takes the money paid by the Hobbits (just tell me if you do)

@Bés:  do you take the Letter given by the Hobbits?

Re: OOC-Various messages
I think the word reputation is misleading a bit.
In my understanding Standing is your status within your culture, how much influence and connections you have.

Reputation is part of it but not all and we all start as people unknown and you'd may want to raise your influence prety much why people go to politics.

Bern will take the cash, there is no shame in being paid for your work.

I suppose Shalronel will take her share, so she isn't suspected of anymore "elven politics".

Re: OOC-Various messages
@Bés:  do you accept the letter for Daín - and/or - the payment for rescuing Dindy?

@all:  I might go with Berangar's idea from a while back, which would be to have a simple (not double) Fellowship Phase (a few weeks - fortnight/month - to spend AP and XP, as well as some Fellowship Phase things, but no far traveling) and then move on to an Adventuring phase in late Summer / early Fall, followed by the double Fellowship Phase for late-Fall/Winter

Re: OOC-Various messages
@Shalronel:  yes, you told me where you wanted to put your points.  Just need to wait for a Fellowship Phase to put all that into effect.

Re: OOC-Various messages
I would really really want to have a Fellowship phase so Bern could reforge his spear either in Dale or in some other place that has good metal working.

Ask one of the two Dwarf PCs to do it. We start with Craft 3, after all. ^_^

Re: OOC-Various messages
Thanks, Bés.  So, noted for all.

Also:  I had an idea just after reading Bern's remark, so I have no problem (the idea was about resolving a little timeline thing that had surfaced) with moving to the double end of year Fellowship Phases after the ceremony for Iwgar.

@Berangar:  are you okay with moving down South to the ceremony, or do you wish to set out after Shanker?

Oh, by the way, I received the big all in one book TOR rules today!

Edit:  I added a line to follow your Sanctuaries ; and a line under each character to track things such at TP (what you carrying, what you have stashed somewhere…) and Status under Fellowship, Characters...

Sorry, yes, Berangar will go south for the ceremony.  He doesn't really have a starting point to go after Shanker.

Re: OOC-Various messages
Will wait for Bés to read the last post, and have time to interact or not (so probably I will post tomorrow, Monday morning - Euro' time).

Re: OOC-Various messages
Just to let everyone know, I'll be flying over for Toronto the day after tomorrow, so for a few days I'll be offline (save my mobile). I'll be in vacation until the 12th (better assume the 14th) so my posting over that time would be limited somewhat.

Re: OOC-Various messages
Okay, Bern.
I'll put up the funeral and such before you leave, and then it will be Fellowship time, so not even needing to wait for you to post really.
Have fun and enjoy your holidays.

Re: OOC-Various messages
I posted before Bés returned, since Bern is leaving for some days.

And I am closing this thread, ending the First Adventure:  "Of Leaves and Stewed Hobbit", from "Tales from Wilderland".

Thank you!
