Update - 1 Dec 2019

Due to some recent events, I have re-evaluated my presence here on RPR and I have made some adjustments on how I participate. It's all about writing roleplay and stories, and character development. Public participation will be limited. Write On Everybody!

Timezone: I reside in Australia in the UTC +10 Timezone so my hours on RPR are quite out of sync with both North and South America, and Europe where all my writing partners reside.

A bit about me...
I'm a full-on J.R.R. Tolkien Middle Earth freak, with much of my online RP experience having been set in Middle Earth starting in 1999. Before that I did tabletop D&D using the TSR 2nd edition rules. I've also been involved in some World War 2 gaming/rp mixes.

My RP style is that of a collaborative writer. I consider my RPs as 'stories' (as opposed to being a 'gamer' playing a 'game'). I've written short stories based in my own fantasy world, historical fiction, and some fanfics based in Tolkien's Middle Earth and Glen Cook's Black Company worlds. I have been, and currently am in longterm RPs on another site and had successfully written to a close a five year mash-up RP of the two above worlds. RP and story writing is what I do as a hobby.

My original reason for signing up to this site was to get all my various characters I've created over the decades a place to live. I'm also working on getting all my stories organised and archived, and will be posting some of them in the respective character pages. I figure this will be a life-long project as I have reams of notebooks I need to review and scan. I had a cabinet full of floppy discs, burned CDs, thumb drives, and such but have archived them on an external hard drive and backed it up on a cloud.

I do plan on consolidating my Tolkien character pages into one character slot here, but it hasn't happened yet.

Some Memorials...

The Fallen
  • John Roby Wolf ~ In memory of my cousin - A Fallen Hero ~ August 23 1945 - November 20 1967 ~ I made this character as a memorial to my cousin who was Killed in Action in Vietnam. One page of the profile is dedicated to the memory and gathering of all I can on him and the battles he was in between March and November 1967
  • ~ Starlight Diva ~ In Memory of Jessica 'Raven Tinuviel' Davis ~ January 1 1970 to February 24 2019. ~
    I'm in a "cheery" mood tonight. I got word that a dear friend I worked with for a time in the late 1990's and RP'd with in the 2000s has passed away after a battle with ALS/MND. We had quite deep talks back in the day and she told me of her heroin addiction as a teenager.

    She said this song by Black Sabbath was spot on when it came to opiate use. She was one tough woman. Having a daughter at age thirteen, addiction, rehabilitation, single motherhood, yet always seemed to have a positive attitude and was quite an outwardly happy person. Rest in Peace Jessica 'Raven Tinuviel' Davis - January 1 1970 to February 24 2019.

    I created the character Starlight Diva in honour of her. We had been involved in collaborative RP writing since 2000 after we found each other on a site called DarkStarr. Her username there was Starlightdiva, and over a few weeks there we got into a bit of an erotic orgy RP with a few others. It ended as quickly as it began, and we chatted in an OOC thread and we found out we were registered on The One Ring, a Tolkien-Middle Earth site created in the heady daze of the Lord of the Rings movie-making at the turn of the century. There, she was known as Raven Tinuviel and I was my Ranger character Halasian. We started and wrote many a Middle Earth-based RP story there. I last RP'd with her there in 2007, and I lost touch with her completely in 2009 when she quit answering emails.

    It was only by chance that I got an email notification from The Land of Rohan message board we both had frequented back 'in the old days' alerting me that she had posted anew. It turned out it was her granddaughter logging into her account telling people she knew that she had died. The news kind of hit me a bit hard. It wasn't like we were close in real life or anything as we only shared the same employer for a few months. But we were close online after that and close in RP. Her characters and several of mine had some intense RP in our stories. I sent her granddaughter my condolences and shared some stories with her about our time together online. When her granddaughter asked me if I had memories and saved stories I would share, I spent some time going through my collected files. I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to RP stories, and my computers and storage drives and my long-running email address are a bit like when Gandalf went into the depths of the library archives of Gondor in the Fellowship of the Ring movie. Anyway, I found some long forgotten gems, and it got me in touch with some other co-writers that were in some of our group RPs, and some of the original threads were found on some of the sites that hadn't ceased to exist over the years. (It was good to see that our mutual friend 'Hunter' had revived one of the stories on The One Ring and is finishing it)

    Starlight Diva is my way of honouring my dear friend. She is a work in progress, and I will be updating her page regularly as I have time to go over all the stories and the planned stories we had written over the years. I have based Starlight Diva's initial histories to one of the first things she ever shared with me on DarkStarr when she wanted my critique of her character bio. It was not set in any fandom and was quite detailed. She took parts of it and adapted it to her Middle Earth character, which I will be writing as one period of time in her list of outlines. I will not be roleplaying with this character though. She is strictly a shrine to my dearly departed friend and role playing partner and a place for me to write and hold to her memory. She would have loved RP Repository!
My RP Repository Character Showcase and Wall of Appreciation

Here is a link to my 'Featured Character Showcase' thread which I update every time I randomly find a character I like. I'm behind on writing Kudos, but will eventually have one for every character on this list.

This is my Wall of Appreciation of the people I have come to know and write with since coming here to RPR.

These are the wonderful people and characters I've written RP with here on RPR:
People who I've RP'd with but are no longer on the site (lined out):
  • Lady of Gondor (Scarlett Heart and Annie Hood)
  • ElenaPeriwinkle (Freya DiSilvestro)

Each and every one of these people and characters have made my time on RPR a blessed experience.

Lastly, I give the biggest appreciation to Kim for her dedication and hard work that she puts into providing us this beautiful role playing site for us all to play in!

My 'Friends' Policy
After some interesting happenings, I've cleared out my friends list by 80%. If you find you have been removed and would like to know why, send me a message and we'll talk about it. Also, If anyone wants to send me a friend request, please message me first. Let's talk. Maybe we will find common interests and maybe start an RP. I will no longer blindly accept cold-call friend requests.

Rave Reviews

  • In part of Shadow's words: This is over due. so here we go! Shadow is one of those rprs who I love to read about his past experiences in rp. Especially for Lord of the Rings. And his OC's for Middle Earth are a fantastic read to me! Heck, all his OC's are a ball to...

  • So far, I've really enjoyed RPing with Dunedain-Ranger. We have great OOC communication that has led to a smooth first few posts to our RP. It's been fun to get excited about our ideas together and jump into an RP with open minds about plot and where things could go....
