Welcome all. I trust you can access your character sheets etc.
Thus far we have four players. a Dwarf and three Elves (an interesting group).
We are awaiting one more player who expressed a desire to join.

It seems that the sixth person is not going to join us. As a result I may start tonight. So if you need to make any final adjustments to your characters, please do.
But don't panic over gear and such, for there is plenty of time to get ready for the off.

To begin you are all aquainted and have had dealings with Gandalf in the past. You all have a backstory, so use this to cover the details. Although for all intents and purpeses you are beginning characters, you do have previous experiences, which is why you are known to Gandalf, you are not simply sword fodder as many starting characters are.

Bes: Please add you character details and those who have yet to fill out a character description, please do.

Unimportant it is merely the introduction, the real story begins with Part One; Many Meetings, which will be posted this evening.

The king keeps saying laddies so I assumed that Gwen wasn't present.

I think Gloin would say that sort of thing anyway. He's a hardy dwarf with poor manners.

Except that Bés has no score in Insight, I would roll for Encounter Advantage. Unless our Loremaster considers rolling a Gandalf on the feat die a success, in which case I have as decent a chance of success as I do of rolling an Eye.

At this point no rolls are needed as you have already been vouched for by Gandalf. Because of this Gloin, though obviously distrustful of Elves no doubt due to past experiences, will be as welcoming and pleasant to all. However when dealing with other Dwarves, who are not so bound by rules of hospitality,or in deference to wizards, I may require Encounter rolls. Remember some Dwarves, Balin for instance, have a very outgoing attitude.

As for Gloin's use of the term 'Laddies' when referring to you, it is not meant as a slight to Gwenhwfar, for it is impossible not to notice that she is a female, it is as Aerandir puts it, "He's a hardy Dwarf with poor manners" although Gloin would probably say 'Brusque manners'.

Did you notice that http://azrapse.es/tor/sheet.html has already updated for the Adventurer's Companion? I've skimmed the entire book already and plan to give it a comprehensive read over the holidays. Love everything I've seen thus far! ^_^

You will find the map of Balins intended route in the Maps thread.

Nah, use any colour you feel comfortable with except orange that's for OOC stuff. I like blue, and everyone knows Dwarves are odd folk ;)

I took an English course in Tolkien-online.  It was more a study of the author and the influences of his works than his works, but there was a survey of his literature as a reflection of his experiences.
