    Sorry...I was brewing last night ;D and didn't have a chance to sign on. 

    An Elvish king named Farahin was once the king of all,
    He left no heirs to take his place when he was but to fall,
    Was known as wise and I'd say that's true since Gaelen he did snare,
    But Galen had not met me yet or it'd be me she'd pledged to care.   :-*

    Farin is a Dwarven smith
    His prowess is the stuff of myth
    The ring he made for Rosalin
    With friendly message deep within
    The black stone's depths it doth conceal,
    but Eolarin light reveal!

    His teeth were like swords
    His claws were like daggers
    Scales he had many
    And spines on his tail

    His color was Scarlet
    Spouting fire from his gullet
    What havoc did he wreak
    Upon all who could speak

    But Fesok he met
    The Iron Bearded King
    Fearless and strong
    With smarts come along

    Now Cos-domonhain stands
    Upon the great lands
    Where Redruin came
    To lose his great claim


    Man, this is getting harder!  I'll be away from the 'puter all weekend -- running away -- running up to Vintage Illinois Winefest!

    Have fun everybody!!

    (psst! Hey, Brew! Should I mention that Redruin has been used before? Naahhh...Tip's rhyme is so fine, I can't bear to tell him!)

    Elraen was once a happy young heart,
    Until Wrothgar's pits tore her soul apart.
    Her mind was gone; her spirit was dark,
    Her eyes without life or vital spark.
    When she left her love, his heart did break,
    And for him she did Galador mistake.
    As she drew her last breath, he came once more,
    And took her away to Elysia's shore.

    I'd let sleeping Raven's lie, Archer...his rhymes are stellar!  Besides, I think both of us have used names twice ourselves.   8)

    Orogond lie there counting star by star,
    He'd being doing the same all night so far,
    The sun was rising in the East don't you know,
    And he'd not slept a wink since he'd laid down low.

    He couldn't understand what kept him from sleep,
    But then he remembered...he'd drank far too deep,
    He'd been really tired, he'd felt almost dead,
    'til the kaffa from El-Morah's cafe' before bed.

    Tip: It's supposed to get harder! That's why it's fun! Have a great weekend--this rhyme's for you!

    (to the tune of 'Geen Acres')

    Greeeeeeeen Mountains are a place of fame,
    Monadh-ailan is their Elvish name.
    Peaks stretching out so tall and wide,
    Gotta get past 'em so all day we must ride!

    (da-dum-de-da-dum)

    Gaelen: 'Let's GO!'

    (da-dum-de-da-dum)

    Fima: 'This BLOWS!'

    (da-dum-de-da-dum)

    Eros: 'Nice grass!

    (Da-dum-de-da-dum)

    Fima: 'My A$$!'

    Gaelen: Shut up and ride!
    Fima: Goodbye, my backside!

    All: Green Moun-tains we are gooooooone!

    They're really not that hairy,
    Yet people find them scary,
    They do not like the sun at all,
    Some are big and some are tall,
    I think perhaps they're misunderstood,
    But please, not in my neighborhood.

    Now who's this I blabber on about?
    It's Olcas friend, without a doubt!

    Excellent job, Brew-meister! (ahem!)

    Fortress of Might, Walls of Stone,
    Realm of Great Learning standing alone.
    Your King has fallen, the Gates given way,
    Wrothgar's Legions advance on this dark, dark day.
    Fair Dardis is lost, Leiras, too.
    Baelta the Bright gave his life for you.
    The Light is extinguished for Evil cause--
    The Greatest Realm that ever was.

    Mother Rosalin, a river beauty she was, And Orogond's mom

    I'n baaack!! -- and I see you've all be pleasantly creative whilst I was away swilling the elixirs of the grape. 
    Weather did not cooperate but a wine, errr, fine time was had by all!
    Rainy in the morning but it stopped in time and it was just overcast in the afternoon -- kept it cool though. Came back with 2 1/2 cases to add to the cellar. Hmm, maybe buying a house with an 8x8 chilled wine cellar was NOT a good idea!   :D

    Yay! Tip's back and he's got wine!
    Party at Tip's house?  8)

    Salasin the Scholar--

    Learned hands and stony heart,
    Faced trial on the darkwater's night.
    The waves threw the vessel high and hard,
    At the mercy of the mountain's might.
    Some say Aontar drew the wave
    that bore it to the sand,
    For brave Salasin took his precious lore
    And founded Dun Arian.

    The Silver City prospered there,
    And there it stands today.
    As a monument to the knowledge
    Which none could take away.

    The ale it doth flow
    and the honey astound
    The Elves gather round
    and the stories abound
    As the sun peaks atop
    and Risolas comes round

    In the dry, parched earth of the Raavi-Shan
    was the thief they searched from dusk to dawn,
    just half a face was left of him,
    the ravens feast had done him in.

    A skin lay just outside his reach,
    perhaps a nasty lesson to teach,
    he died alone and thirsty too,
    but what else is a wicked Spider to do?

    Gaelen and Nelwyn came on him late,
    they cursed revenge they'd now not sate,
    but when done they'd no longer dread,
    the sight of Cuidag who'd lost his head.   ;D

    P.S.  Forgot to mention...WELCOME BACK, Tip!   ;)

    Ri-solas? Extra points for obscurity!!
     :D

    Brew--your rhyme is sublime! Cuidag was a scag.
    Dead is the best way he can be--as you let us all see.

    How's this for obscure?

    Aran is a friend long lost,
    Whose gruesome death came at great cost.
    For Gaelen's hair, like ginger-gold,
    Will never Orogond enfold.
    She tears it short with blade of steel,
    It frames bright eyes with wild appeal.
    But never will he lose his soul
    Engulfed in hair of ginger-gold. :-\

    Lost and shivering out of her mind
    Made mad by the evil she had bore
    The one the scouts they did come to find
    The one who was the loved of Galdor
    That love she had held did make her bind
    To Nelwyn's dear mate sweet Galador
    In the troop some kindness she would find
    and healing come from the Eolar
    Dona she was since being maligned
    In truth she was known an elfen star
    As Gaelen and Nelwyn would remind     
    And once again her mind would unbar
    She was to become desert enshrined
    Elraen's tale is one without par

    Alas, I have no such wit.

    So I will just watch and enjoy.

    Noooooooo!    :-[  :-[  :-[

    We didn't mean to get out of hand with the game -- c'mon back and play -- rhymes are NOT required!  ;)

    Okay Elraen was last up so I'll offer up

    Eadram

    A reminder -- all you need do is pick 3 letters in the last name and find a new name with those letters in it in order (do not need to be adjacent though) and you've done it.

    Take a shot at it Geoff  :D
