The Elf Maid Saga
Just thought I would post this for peeps to read.
This was a series of RP events I ran on the old EU Laurelin Server a few years back.
Let me know what you think.
The event started with a band of the Rangers of the North been called together at Esteldin where a sharp witted Burgler by the name of Khellus explained that he had been sent by Elrond with a quest of upmost importance.
It apppeared that an Elven maiden had set of from Rivendell recently with the intention of finding her sister who she had not seen since the 2nd age, and all Elrond could say was that she had seen a great evil awakening far to the north.
Unfortunatly she was waylaid on her journey and was taken by the vile Orcs of Dol Dinen where she was to given to Mordrith, with these vague directions in mind it was only by fortune that Khellus stumbled across her location as he stumbled through there camp.
So with there small band formed the group headed to Orc encampment where they fought to free the elf maid Angina, a task that was a success but at the cost of one of there companions, but it was only once they had fled to a small ranger camp south of Esteldin that the true magnitude of there task was laid before them.
It was only here that the maiden revealed that her sister was indeed Glathlirel and that she was the guardian of a terror deep within the halls of a place known commonly as the Rift, with time been of the essence and lacking the knowledge of the way the elf maid again turned to her saviours.
And so on a warm summers eve, the remaining eleven companions headed into the easten pass of Angmar on there quest to take the elf maid to safety, there journey was not to be an easy as they fought through the spiders and Orcs of Ram Duath and the Goblins of Bail Rova before they found themselves facing the uncertain terrors of Malenhad.
It was here while fighting a giant beast of the wastes that Edelhardt the brave suffered a grevious wound to his leg and was forced to stay behind with the Dwarves of Gabilshathur, yet fate blessed the band with a new companion a stout hobbit by the name of Tillia who bore a message from Elrond for Angina Maiden of Rivendell.
It was with this good fortune that the companions rode there fresh mounts north through the barren land of Angmar, where they finally laid there eyes upon there journeys goal, however there goal was blocked by an army of Orcs, giants, trolls and other servants of shadows.
It was while the firends planned there next route that a band of orcs who had been tracking them since Dol Dinen made there move to steal back the maiden and only through the daring of Gamric, Frol and Canraen was the attack foiled.
Now with a new urgency in mind the friends raced across the mountains slaying monstrous Wargs and vile Spiders untill they finally found themselves facing a large encampment of Trolls and Giants, it was here that Gamric the selfless led a gallant charge into the camp and though the fighting was fierce the enemy was slain, but at a cost.
Many of the companions had suffered grevious wounds and so to them did Angina revealed her gifts of healing and to a man they were restored as they finally laid there eyes upon the entrance way to the Rift.
