[Imagine Galadriel’s voice]
After the fall of Isuildur many believed the line of kings was tainted, although the ring was lost many searched for it wasting their lives away and neglecting their kingdom in the hopes of finding the ring of power and taking it for their own.
The Elves turned away from these Numenoreans in shame and many in the kingdom of Arnor rebelled refusing to follow their king any longer. Gondor tried many times to force the Dunedain as they now called themselves to submit, but they refused and scattered vowing never to follow the kings so long as they were tainted.
Their greed so great they ignored the threat from the East until it was too late and the shadow covered their lands. They were forced to constantly fight and hold back the enemy defending the free people of Middle Earth, but all the while they still searched for the ring.
It was of great surprise to all when Gilraen who had travelled to Gondor to help wounded soldiers in the war against Sauron, fell in love with King Arathorn the second and bore his only son, Prince Aragorn the second. But soon even she saw the corruption of the king, his greed and uncaring nature. She tried to flee with her son, but failed. Aragorn was torn from his mother’s arms and she was exiled. Gilraen returned to the North where she was cared for by her Nephew Halbarad before she passed away from grief, it was then that the Ranger took a vow to one day, somehow, he would change the kings of Gondor and restore them to the glory of the Numernoreans they descended from and his gaze turned to Gondor and the growing Prince.
So this roleplay can go one thousand different directions. But that basis of it is Aragorn changing from the corrupt and selfish nature he has developed from how he was raised and become the great and awesome leader he is in the books and movies.
So the other person in the rp can choose as their main character: Boromir, Faramir or Halbarad.
Anyone up for it?
