Update - 14 2019

I'll be chillaxing for a few days. I'll keep up with my current RPs but post frequency may be less than it has been. Thanks for your understanding.

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.

Discord: Arassuil#9382 (though I'm rarely on it seems)
Email: (should you wish to contact me outside of this site)

And now for a music break...

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 I keep using them in RPs. :D Maybe it will happen sometime in 2019.

Some Memorials...

My RP Repository Wall of Appreciation
This is my Wall of Appreciation of the people I have come to know since coming here to RPR. It’s broken down into a few categories....

In the OOC/IC list (people I RP with AND talk OOC with)...
My OOC list (people I only talk with and have yet to RP with)...
Abigail Austin

People who I've RP'd with but are no longer on the site (lined out):
  • Skifra (Runhild)
  • 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 goes into providing us this beautiful role playing site for us all to play in!

~ Starlight Diva ~ In Memory of a Good Friend who Passed away February 2019 ~
I created Starlight Diva in honour of a friend of mine who passed away in February. We had been involved in collaborative RP writing since 2000 after meeting 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 a 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.

It kind of hit me a bit hard, not like we were close in life or anything, but we were close in RP, and her character and several of mine had some intense RP in our stories. 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.

I'm getting long-winded here I see. So 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 this site!

In memory of my Cousin John - A Fallen Hero ~ 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

  • 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....
