Here we see Lachwen Shimmerlight, dressed for the cold and wondering what the heck she's doing way up in Forochel. Surely those long-lost second age texts aren't that interesting!
Here's Lachwen looking a bit more typically like herself. I suspect if there were unicorns in Middle-earth, she'd probably be riding one. She's that type of gal.
And here's Lachwen's sister Rufaniel, looking stern and badass. I suspect Lachwen's just said something daft, and Ruf is interested in exactly none of her shenanigans.
I'm having a lot of fun with these two, and I have been getting the stirrings of ideas for a "Life Of a Bounder"-esque series of story posts with them, sometimes interacting, sometimes off doing their own thing. To do that, of course, I have to collect screenies, but I've got a fair number of Lachwen already and will pick up more with Rufaniel as she gets played. She hasn't made it to Mirkwood yet in-game, but when she does I suspect I'll pick up where Lachwen's tale once left off and start trying to blend them in.
I'm also jonesing to find a regular crowd to run with again. Back when it was Poppy, Pippin, Galdor, Nim, and me, running all over Angmar and Moria, those were fun times, and I want to find another group like that. Of course, they're all way up at the level cap, while I'm nursing a L50-ish and a L75-ish, but I'll catch up with time. :)
