After having spent months in some ruins on the shore of the lake Nen Harn on the eastern Breefields, a desserted but beatiful place north of Chetwood, the Eored is stirring. Rumours of the Gap of Rohan having been closed by orcs have reached captain Thraindir from a small expedition that was to escort the Rohirrim woman Cymaru, once cooking for the Eored in their camp, back to the Mark. The news is very disturbing and Therowan, son of Erkenbrand, decides that the Eored should return to Eregion and get a full update on what have passed during the adventures in the north-east. In the morning mist the men of the Eored, ranks filled with joining exiled kinsmen having been driven from Edoras and other corners of the Mark under the spell of Gríma Wormtounge, mount up and prepare to return.
The fifth event in the Rohirric campaign. The event will start Monday February 16th 2009 at 1900 hrs GMT and 2000 hrs CET (central european time) in Ost Guruth. There will be a Gamemaster at the Event.
The growing Eored (Rohirric: a standrad 120 man strong cavallry group) consists of men and women of Rohan*, that for one reason or another, and for a longer or shorter period of time, have individually decided to join together in a larger force of the finest cavallry that can be Mustered in Middle-Earth. Some are exiled kinsmen, others have left Rohan for adventures or even love. Common to all members of the Eored is their deep interest in the wellbeing of the Mark, their wrath against the treachery of Saruman of Isengard and the urge to slay all Orcs of the White Hand that threatens the loved ones back home.
Allthough every member have not decided to return to Rohan just yet, they are all anxious to join together when the need is undisputed. And now it is. A traitor from the Mark, as blond and blueyed as any Horselord, have secretly been working as a messenger and agent for Saruman. He was uncloaked some time ago but managed to escape and havent been seen since. Rumours have reached Bree that the Gap of Rohan has been closed by dunlendings and orcs (the two archenemies to the the horselords)in an unlawful alliance.
Currently the force is being led by Therowan, son of Erkenbrand who is Lord of the Westfold. He and some of the men are not exiled from Rohan and consider to return to the Mark to see where they may be needed the most. Others are exiled however and they fear what would become of them if they return. All, however, feel the distance to the rolling hills of Rohan being too far away and too threatened. The camp north of Bree is abandoned. The Eored rides east. Towards Rohan. Towards the Mark. To get there they must pass through the Trollshaws, and the dangers from elves and trolls alike. And then coming into Ergion new dangers, yet unknown, may await them...
How many will stay the distance? How far will they come? What say the elves?
Son of Erkenbrand
The Muster of Rohan is an attempt to join Rohan characters from different kinships, backgrounds, goals and dreams into a slowly growing group of Rohirric characters to enjoy the game in a roleplaying fashion. The attempt to get rohan people together is why the name 'Muster of Rohan' was used in the first place.
The longterm goals are to ensure bonds between the Rohan characters from different kinships as well as between 'us' and non-rohan characters that chose to interact with us (which we like very much). Every character doesnt have to join everytime. Some dont enjoy it and never return, others become the closest of friends. Eihter way, these characters life once crossed paths in Eriador where they stayed for so long.
Previously we have met some of the Hobbit community. This time I hope we might meet some of the elven community for example in Gwingris where we will be around 2000 hrs GMT.
Feel free to read one or two descritpions of earlier events (links to the right). To try and get rid of the 'classical lotro looks' we will use round shields. Those who have other shileds - even 'horsehead decorated' ones - will get replacements as long as there is enough in stock.
Please bring a spear for the charge!
