Starting a new Middle Earth PBemail Roleplaying game "Shadow's Rising" Can't Post

This roleplaying game starts off with beginning non-canon Playing Characters.

It is late summer, the 28th day of the month of Urui or August as the Hobbits call it. In the year, 2990 of Third Age of Middle Earth. Circumstance or perhaps fate has brought you to be at The Inn of the Prancing Pony, in the Town of Bree, on this slighty cool breezy evening. Which only hints at The chilly winds of autumn that could be coming sooner then one might think. Soon harvest will begin in the surrounding bountiful fields of Breeland.

(It's been near fifty years since Bilbo Baggins had his great adventure with those Dwarves in the east and north, in TA 2941 An returned to the Shire. And almost thirty years before the events of (LOTR) The War of the Ring, will take place. In TA 3018-19.)

The rules used, will be the easy to learn Middle-Earth Adventure Game. Which can be found at the link below:

http://www.scribd.com/...-Adventure-Game-v4-0

Game focus will be on Roleplaying, rather then Rollplaying! I'm looking for 5-6 Players, to play no more then one each of the following Races: Hobbit, Dwarf, Elf, Half-Elf, remaining number will need to be Human. An no more then 1 of each Profession(Scout Ranger Rogue Warrior), an up to 2 Spellcaster/Scholar PCs. Each of a different type chosen between the 3 types, Mage, Healer or Seer. Player's choice of Race and Profession are on a first come, first choice basis.

When requesting to join the Group at the at this link: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/...p/ShadowsRisingMEAG/
List a first and second choice of Race/Profession for the Player Character you would like to play. Once the Player has been allowed to join and the PC's Race/Profession has been established. The next thing that you will need to do is go to the Files, click on Character Sheet and click edit on the Character Sheet provided for the Race of the Character you are going to play. Put your Characters name in the File Name in front of the Race and Profession (Example, Grimrock Ironfist Dwarf Warrior) Then fill it out using the Rules we are using for this Game. Then start working on a Background for why the PC is in Bree at this time.

Good Gaming,
The GM

An evening at the Prancing Pony! [In reply to] Can't Post

(A glimpse inside "Shadow's Rising")

You arrived in Bree earlier this evening and have taken a room for the night
at the Inn at the sign of the Prancing Pony. An have enjoyed a fine evening's
repast. A fine meal that hit the spot, indeed!. A Traveling Minstrel and her
Apprentice have taken up a postion to the left of the Great Hearth. They are
tuning up their instruments, preparing to begin tonight's entertainment in the
Inn's Taproom. You order a goblet or tankard of your favorite beverage. An
sit back and listen as they begin to play.

(Click here to see some of what you have seen since arriving at the Prancing Pony this evening.)

Shadow's Rising. Middle Earth Roleplaying [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for your interest. As of now we have all the players that we need. But, as it goes
in games like these. There could be someone who drops out. If such is the case I will put you
on the list for possible replacement.

Good Gaming,
Wulfnor
