As for the son's ages, if I managed to get this right according to the info on Tolkien Gateway Borlad is the oldest, Borlach is the middle son and that would make Borthand the youngest son. I think @Tharmáras said he would take him. All the lads are married to the joy of their mother so their wives and children will be with Bahar, Bór's wife, at the settlement.
Incidentally, we also don't have any clue what their pre-Elven names were, do we? It just hit me that when it says he was given the title "the Faithful" after his death that probably is just talking about the name "Bor," isn't it?
All that being said, I think I'm going to open in the midst of a wolf-hunt. That way it can still be tied into the agrarian / food shortage side of things -- the wolves threaten livestock -- but also lead into a planned orc-trap.
Regarding Bór's name, I know he was given the title of "Faithful" posthumously, I don't really remember if Bór was his name, or just the name elves decided to call him. That's the name he entered into history with, but if you want to give him another name that he would leave behind when he leaves behind his old country I am totally for it
I'll be taking Borthand, the youngest, @Androthelm . Yeah there's no telling if they had names prior to their service with Maedhros and Maglor. We'll have to make up the ages since we're only given death dates. I'll make Borthand 32 if that's alright with you and Nessa.
@Tharmáras all right. I'm giving you a mention in the wolf-hunt, since the sons are all there.
So if Borthand is 32, then Borlach would be 34 and Borlad 36 if I did the math right *insert math lady gif* Now, that I got that sorted let's sort wives and (grand)kids Don't at me here, everyone's got their own priorities
That would be great actually. If it is alright with @Fuin Elda of course. I am going to have Gorgol and Emeldir separated in my next post; with the Orcs rallying once again to their commander and Brina the family leader gathering to Emeldir with the remnants of her kin. You could have Morwen's father, Beren, Morwen @Tarawen, and Beorian @Nessa Saelind arrive in time to help push back The Butcher's horde to buy everyone enough time to carry out their retreat.Tharmáras wrote: ↑Wed Dec 30, 2020 9:14 pm @Annúnfalas an @Fuin Elda , y'all let me know when you both would like for me to post as Morwen's dad who's with Emeldir by the Whitehorn longhouse, getting the chieftess retreating toward her castle. In that same post I'll have Beren, Morwen (@Tarawen), and Beorian (@Nessa Saelind) character being attacked so we can fight there a bit before the evacuation toward Mount Foen.
I was only planning on featuring Brina, in one post - but since that has not been the case I am going to find her a model (I already know who I can use) and make her an icon. If that is okay with you @Tharmáras. Brina the Unarmed, who was named that because Gorgol cut off her primary sword hand, is an ancestor of Elegost Whitehorn and his older brother Elendol. Two Dúnedain rangers of mine that will be roleplayed in my upcoming RPG - The Chronicles of Ergoth.

I'll tag you in my next Himring post coming up for you, Celebrin, as well as Lantaelen and Tarawen and Laintaen !
@Ta'leus Shieldsong , like Celebrin said, AoA will never die ! Its eternal life is due to largely in part to the committted activity of its few members. We've always had a small group of members. We need you and I'm glad you're here . Right now we're still in the beginning of the RPG ; we will reach the middle part when Beren (me) meets Lúthien (Moriel). At the moment, the Bragollach War has just started; the Northern regions of Beleriand are literally aflame and the minions have begun assaulting Elves and Men. We can help you start NPC creation (if you have a primary Plaza Elven character living during this time, you can write him or her as well) and if you want a canon character to play, just look here and let me know who or what you want, friend. https://lotrfanaticsplaza.com/forum/vie ... 8938#p8938
I recently posted as Aredhel for Moriel and Rivvy. The next post I make for be for Cassie and Frost concerning the Gondolin emergency council Turgon calls after speaking to Thorondor.
Galdor the Tall is currently 38 years old; he will soon become Chieftain of the Third House in this RPG when Hador is killed. Galdor will die seven years after the Dagor Bragollach in this RPG when Morgoth sent a great force against Hithlum. If you like, you can have Galdor alerted by the alarum bells ringing in Eithel Sirion Fortress; he can see a field of flames burning beyond the walls of the citadel. Have him ready himself for war; you can have Galdor meet his father, King Fingolfin, and the elven commanders in the council room of the tower. Galdor can see Eärcolanté - an Elven cavalry captain, Rivvy Elf's NPC - collapse due to his burn wounds.
Casting call, folks:
So far no one has chosen to play Belegund's unnamed, unseen wife. Tolkien did not mention when she died. Maybe @Nessa Saelind would like to volunteer and could write her off at some point. Maybe sometime before or after her daughter dies of a broken heart on Haudh-en-Ndengin, the Hill of the Slain, in Anfauglith in Masters of Doom; the mother could have survived the murder of her husband and the death of her child. I strongly suggest the mother lives beyond Dorthonion so that way we can see her raise Rian into adulthood and because Tolkien said many women & children left Dorthonion with Emeldir.
Belegund's sister is named Beleth. She is currently 38 years old and has no death date. It is assumed that Beleth was married and had descendants from her unknown children; her only known canon offspring is Beregar, a nobleman of Númenor and the father of Erendis. Perhaps you'd be interested, @Annúnfalas ? I know you love the ocean and here is a sea connection.
Hareth, daughter of Halmir Chieftain of the Haladin, is currently 35 years old and living in Dor-Lomin. She is married to Galdor the Tall; she is the mother of Hurin and Huor who are presently being fostered in Brethil by their uncle. Tolkien didn't give her a death date. Hareth would be 52 years old by the time of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad and the occupation of Ulfang's Easterlings in the Masters of Doom RPG....could have some great drama with her there and we could possibly write her off during that time, killed by one of the evil Swarthy Men. Any takers?
I would be delighted to roleplay as Hareth as well, should it please the TR.

Gwendolyn's parents - Clara and Jamie (he's at the Pass of Sirion now, fighting along side Tharmaras and soon Earmana & Annunfalas) - live in the Vales of Maglor. Gwendolyn goes there with Emeldir's exodus so she would know Elegost and Elendol during the passage. Gwendolyn's husband, Nathaniel Galerida, will be reaching the Vales of Maglor with Cassie's character, Mads, inevitably. Nathaniel is the ancestor of Khallador who Elegost knows in the modern day . Presently, Clara is visiting one of Cassie's characters in Hithlum by way of the Darthir Pass Tolkien mentioned in Unfinished Tales so the family will see your characters through that route, too, when they settle there !
Hareth and Beleth (including her husband and child who you can name) are all yours! Cassie and I have Elves - Ospiel and Laurielote - who try helping the Edain of the Third and First House during the occupation in the next RPG (this is being hinted at in the Narn Cûminya short story she and I are writing in the Ever On RP though we get the tail end of it) until they are forced to flee Hithlum. Maybe they can help Hareth in some way we could plot, at least Laurielote. We'll think up stuff for Beleth and her posterity leading up to Erendis' father in the Second Age as time goes on !
Well apparently I am a very good wife (someone needs to alert my future husband of this fact ) so yes I will gladly write Belegund's unseen and unnamed but very good wife. Who will most likely not have a name beginning with a B because there are too many humans with B names running around Beleriand at this point in time And I'll have to adjust my expectations about raising a daughter who chose to die of grief *grumbles into the void, such a waste*Tharmáras wrote: ↑Mon Jan 18, 2021 5:42 amSo far no one has chosen to play Belegund's unnamed, unseen wife.

Since no one has taken Galdor the Tall in all this time, I claim him.
I'll update the Dramatis Personae in Imladris Archives to show which characters Ta-leus, Nessa, and Erica I have mentioned above.
Thank you! This historically hysterical circus is in town 24/7 for everyone's delight and amusement Oh and I need to send you the final update about who's who in Bor's household as soon as it's completed so you have that list as well. *writes a post-it note, slaps it on the laptop*
Looking forward to seeing Bor's household staff .
