Book 6: Act 3 - Breaking of the Fellowship

It is the year 2946 of the Third Age, and the lands east of the Misty Mountains are astir. From the cloud-shrouded peaks above the High Pass to the spider-infested gloom of the forest of Mirkwood, paths long-deserted are trodden once again. Busy merchants carry their wares to new markets, messengers bring tidings from foreign realms, and kings send forth armed men to extend their influence and the rule of law. Some say that a new age of freedom has begun, a time for adventure and great deeds to reclaim glories lost in long centuries of oppression and decline.

But adventures are not really things that people go out and look for. They are dangerous and rarely end well. While it is true that a handful of valiant individuals set out to make their mark on the world, for others it seems that adventure chooses them, as though it is the path they are fated to tread. They are restless warriors, curious scholars and wanderers, always eager to seek what was lost or explore what was forgotten. Ordinary people call them adventurers, and when they return successful, they call them heroes. But if they fail, no one will even remember their names...

Borir walks over to greet Finn. Holding his favorite tankard in hand and overhearing their recent conversation, he asks, "She talks to birds?" The dwarf starts to chuckle, "You can say...." He pauses for a moment, then continues, "... she's a bit bird-brained. Hahaha." Borir slaps his thigh as he rolls in laughter, careful to not spill a drop of his ale with luck of the tankards cap sealing in mostly shut.

Rathar felt something lift in him when the elf appeared, whether it was something to do with the mystique of the elder children, or simply visitation from a companion, he was not sure.

The Woodman smiles a weak smile as she speaks, ignoring the whisper in his heart to stay, to avoid such danger again, then swiftly he puts his hand on her shoulder and says, "We go."

Varuthil smiles briefly, then says, "Good, we will set out in the morning. Let us enjoy the Woodmen's hospitality for the night."

By morning Rathar's spirit is high, to wander the eves of Mirkwood once more in the company of the elven woman Varuthil has brought strength to his legs. The pair set out at dawn, and after many miles, and surprisingly nice weather they reach the Easterly Inn...
This fellowship phase has come to an end. I'll get posting the new Adventure Phase right away.
