@Isolde Alarion No need for a horse, and added Mourgan already after we chatted. :D

@Nessa Saelind We still haven't gotten anywhere that would require peeling potatoes... :P

As in... use potatoes as ammunition for slingshot or catapult to throw at the enemy?

@Pele Alarion - like the scout's motto says: it's always good to be prepared :grin: And unless we are being attacked or attacking a large horde of wild hungry hobbits :lol: let's not catapult or slingshot potatoes just yet :lol:

Calling all Rangers who participated in the A Dangerous Threat / The Eastern Menace RPG threads to HQ!
Timeline: when returning home from said mission
For more info, read my post in the Ranger Commons

*pokes head in* Well, that escalated quickly. *puts healer's hat on* Might I gently nudge said rangers to drop by the Houses of Healing after the reports are made? To enjoy the serene atmosphere in the garden, have a cuppa and perhaps talk to a healer about what happened. *is subtle as an elephant in a china shop*

Some of us are already peeling those auspicious spud types at the Inn, @Nessa Saelind :tongue: But apparently I ought be taking Ilisys to have healers check up on how her fractures are healing, etc, since the initial mission is officially debriefing it's folks now ?

My apologies offered here too @Arnyn, for having dropped in a response to Faramir's rpg, right after the King's almighty entrance in the HQ. :googly: :embarrassed: I had to weigh up the change of mood/scene/time with the need to move on so that @The King in Yellow's Ranger can enlist in good time to join us ! :winkkiss:

I did leave out my planned barracks mayhem with the unleashing of certain untrained dogs, at least for now though, so as not to detract from the other goings on in the thread. There shall come a time for such shenanigans (once the king is not watching, Shhhhhh!). :grin:

@Tharmáras, you have until I finish my post for the inn. Then I'm heading that way !

I promise to get to that soon! I've been feeling barely motivated to do much writing (extreme lack of sleep and moving stress have taken a toll) but I should be able to write up somethin good and bounce my way over the RPG shortly
So what if it's evil?

Thanks for the epilogue, @Arnyn , and the chancd to recieve accolades now for the prior RP! I'll show up there as Beren. Is there a particular way you want us to appear in the headquarters with the captured Lieutenant who needs to be imprisoned?

@Nessa Saelind , so would I have two timelines in the healing house? 1. Beren there after the mission to see that Isys whom he healed can be inspected and so thst he can tell Nessa what happened? 2. Beren in present day for his absurdly late appointment about his PTSD and some more healing training with Nessa?

Okay, @Ercassie , I should be done by tomorrow afternoon and hopefully you won't be done by then with the inn so I don't have to write more :lol: :winkkiss: . I'm still anticipating our canine mischief in the Commons :smooch: 🐶. I'll be in two timelines there, Arynn's post-mission and present day.

@Nessa Saelind As in, a healer/psychologist, to mentally recover from the LT's baffling betrayal of the commander he seemed so utterly loyal to and in sync with? :lol:

@Tharmáras well yes... it's not because the RPG sizzled out that there can't be any recognition, right? And the Lt would be dropped at the dungeons first (there were plenty of witnesses after all, there is no discussion), so he would no longer be with the Rangers once they arrive at HQ. I will try and write an Arnyn or Kaylin post to lift the tip of the vail a bit more so you know what IS and ISN'T known from a witness viewpoint.

@Ercassie , that's okay. ;)

@Tharmáras - I am tempted to say that Beren has a continuous timeline :lol: in the Houses of Healing ever since a certain healer diagnosed him with PTSD and cajoled, bullied and blackmailed (not necessarily in that order) him to go to counselling for that :tongue: :smooch: And that he is a regular fixture at the HoH (and the nurses tease him relentlessly), when he chooses to come that is :lol:

@Arnyn - yes, that :lol: and for any other issues and injuries they may have. Promise we healers don't bite (much) :lol:

That lyric is one of many which best describe Beren's life, @Nessa Saelind .

Pele being the first woman to punch Beren would be hysterical, @Pele Alarion :lol: ! Maybe we can fit that into the whole 'Beren recklessly endangering himself to rescue Mourgan' storyline @Isolde Alarion is speaking or will speak to you about for Hunters and the Hunted RPG. Or maybe because Beren has to disobey orders to do it. Like *Punch* "That was stupid, we needed you in this other place! Glad to see Mourg's alive though!" kind of thing :rofl: .

@Arnyn , I'm starting to reply back to your prompt in the Commons! Beren (visiting his Northern kin in Eriador at times) knew Aragorn before the War of the Ring and fought along side him in Lone Lands RPs of mine in the Old Plaza. I'm going to show that in the Imladris Forum here on the New Plaza which is set in the Third Age. Hoping you could have Aragorn remembering/recognizing Beren in your next King post some way for continuity's sake, friend :smooch: !

P.S. @Tharmáras promise to use some of the funds to patch Beren up and have him looking all nice and pretty. Heck we'll even do dentistry work :lol: *someone should really fix me a cuppa coffee :lol: *

You are a clever opportunist, @Nessa Saelind . Morana needs to stop corrupting you. Beren will have to send her a scathing letter. Airien will send a makeup kit to clean up Bear's handsome bruised mug. Tooth-pulling in Middle-earth....the Valar will hear him screaming and Aman isn't even located in Arda anymore.

Airien using kohl for makeup was mentioned in the Masquerade when I described the Black Swan (she had done Mauya's makeup) so no worries about that; the Elf-lady is quite fond of kohl pencils :nod: :smooch: .

I love Quark, Rom, and Nog :rofl: !

@Tharmáras Err... I think insubordination would need more severe ways of treatment than a simple punch, in a battle situation that could put the whole company's lives in danger. *serious nod* But who knows... too much silliness and getting on nerves might earn Beren a punch. :tongue:

I'm done with my post for the RPG after spending the last full day writing it. I just need to edit the thing so I'm going to do that when I wake up. It's 6:13 AM and I'm just now getting to bed...Hul Gondor :headbang: :lol: :smooch: .

This would go swimmingly with the staff :lol:

"Let me see if I understood you, sire," Quintus de Scardena said slowly, measuring his words and looking at the King with a slight frown on his face. "You would request and require of us to lock the Master Healer in the Houses of Healing until she is healed? You are aware, Your Grace, that we are not an asylum?" he said perhaps a bit too sardonically, but the words were loosened and there was no turning them back.

If you ever want to RP this King sends all the rangers, including the Master Healer, to report to the HoH after debriefing so the non-ranger healers can check if everyone's alive, unspoiled and fit for duty :lol: that door is always open. It's so open that the door doesn't even exist :lol: But on a serious note, thinking about what happened on that mission and how it ended, it really would be strange if the King doesn't order some kind of psychological evaluation. *thinking face* Just how to fit that in a fantasy faux-medieval setting, I don't know yet. But I shall endeavour to find out. *puts that on the list of neverending, but nonetheless interesting plot ideas to peruse* Like I said above, the door for this is so open that you can't even see the existence of a door :lol:

@Tharmáras why is the men's quarter of the barracks so atrociously decorated? And who did that so I might have a word? :stab: Bust of Denethor the second of his name... Of all our beloved rulers and stewards to decorate the halls... *sighs* :lol:

BTW I'm counting down the days until someone calls someone son de la Fleeg :lol:

@Ercassie :winkkiss: and I make sure sure Nal and Beren are never boring...or bored.

Ensures that there will always be someone assigned to do the necessary chores like peeling potatoes and mucking out stables and things, after all. A little bit of infractions is thus essential for a perfectly functioning barracks etc. :grin:

@Tharmáras Well, since Nal and Beren are indeed a part of the military, they will have to learn that attention to detail is very important unless they want to die on the field of battle because they are disorganised and fail to follow orders. *wise nod* Let me just figure out how to enforce this actually... Hmm.

@The King in Yellow If you want to join the RPG, this is a good time to jump in, else your char will have to run to catch up. :grin: I figure you can post both in HQ to finish enrolment and in RPG.
