So, yep, the ageless Dark Lord Sauron is back to try to conquer the minds and will of all creatures again. He is also trying to find his ring of power, which he can sense. He is currently posing as the Necromancer, a sorcerer taking residence at the previously abandoned stronghold of Dol Guldur.

Certainly not a friendly guy, he has more living enemies than allies, slaves without will excluded off course. He commands vast legions of orcs and other foul creatures who owe sole allegiance to him. He is also currently shapeless or better saying he can't assume a tangible physical form, but will take on shadowy ones which seem humanoid and strike instant terror on who sees them.

So who wants to share a thread with the Dark Lord in disguise? Post your ideas beneath!!!

Celeborn would likely recognize Sauron for what he is and go report stuff to his lovely wife-y. Plus, he might be dumb brave enough to try and deal with the Dark Lord by his lonesome >.>

Awesome!!! Thanks for the replies. Now to a little problem...

Well, not exactly a problem maybe, but I'm a newbie who doesn't know better so I'd like one of you to start the first thread for me. That is just so I know how to do it later by myself with the tagging and what not.

That being said, Sauron's power will grow much from now until the War of the Ring decades later, which means he is not yet capable of spreading his will throughout all the land, one place at a time, by the means of his fiery eye thingy, so, though he can sense the presence of his ring on a bigger radius because it is intimately connected to him, he can only truly interact with those who are either inside or reasonably close to Dol Guldur at the present moment.

I guess that helps in deciding where the threads would take place in the board even though there is no Dol Guldur forum, so I guess it would be in Mirkwood since the stronghold is said to be located in southern Mirkwood? I'm a little lost here, so help needed. LOL.

I also think that Sauron would, at first, try deceit on both Gwendolyn and Celeborn. It is good for him that everyone thinks he is a mortal man sorcerer for now. He'll want to reveal himself as himself at a later moment, once he is ready to take on the form of the great eye of Sauron, but that is for later.

As a first idea I think Sauron might try to fool Gwendolyn and scare her off with one of his pyrokinetic shows, while he might use necromancy on Celeborn as he is a more dangerous opponent due to being so close to the White Council. He wants to avoid direct conflict with the White Council at this moment.

So, yes, this is all I have for now, even because I'm tired. Thankfully it's Saturday tomorrow. Yay!!! I'll reply tomorrow morning to whatever I am given and am not against changing my mind as better ideas come up, so let's see what happens as it happens.

Is there still an interest to play with Sauron? I think I can start a couple of threads myself now, so whoever wants to reinforce or add a request, feel free to do so. *nods*

I don't suppose that if Celeborn is going to go poking around Dol Guldur he would allow his beloved (but altogether capable) grandson(s?) to tag along?

And yes, Dol Guldur threads should take place in the Mirkwood board.  In time, once there are several threads on the trot, I may create a board dedicated entirely to the fortress. :)

LOL. The more, the merrier. I'm up for Elrohir, Elladan and Celeborn to go make Sauron a visit. Maybe even join this thread before I reply there? Let me know what you decide.

A different thread for the four of us would work too. And it would also make sense that they would go to the fortress since Elrond probably mentioned his observations to his sons as to warn them and Gwendolyn probably did the same with Celeborn and Galadriel. So if this thread comes after "The Shadow Of The Past" it actually makes a lot of sense in many ways. LOL.

I have made the thread I told you I would, dear Marbys! Hope you enjoy it, sorry if I didn't give you enough to work off of. If there is anything you want me to add or maybe even change, let me know! ^^

Seeking Out the Name of Evil

Also, sorry if the name of the thread is lame, too. XD;; I am horrible with coming up with names...

I'll be posting for you soon, Loki!!!!

Sorry I took so long. Though still slow to type, I'm back to stay now.

That means plotting on this thread is open again to any and all who wish a close encounter with the entity which is the synonym of evil on Middle-Earth.

This Elf-Lord would very much like to plot with the Dark-Lord. Perhaps he can be investigating Dol Guldur, and they end up at odds with one another?

I'll be replying to the past thread between Sauron and Angolon tomorrow. Just getting my feet down again after my absence.

By the way, if anyone is interested in plotting new ideas or ideas that didn't actually turn into threads yet, post bellow. Unlike the Dark Lord, his player is all ears for past, present and future threads.

Sorry it took so long!!! :D Life got a little busy. ^^

Sauron and Bolg

I would imagine that since his father is working for The Necromancer, Bolg and Sauron might have a few interesting exchanges or encounters...maybe Bolg doesn't altogether trust The Necromancer to help him and his father get what they want - revenge on the Oakenshields - seeing as Sauron has "bigger fish to fry" in a manner of speaking. Or we could have a three-way PM session with Durano/Azog if you wanted to plan on RPing out that one scene from Bolg's history. :) Whatever you want to do!
