Then tonight, Dooley posted in his journal that he didn't really know what happened when he was KO'd, just presumed that it was Roland's actions. So I started a private conversation with Sauron's mun (who also plays Eowyn) in the chat.
> In as Dooley isn't quite sure how he got back, want to joint plot a possible reason?
eowyn> uuuuh maybe.. lol, what's the plot reason?
> maybe they were attacked as they entered and Dooley's horse ran for it... but Roland wasn't as lucky, perhaps?
eowyn> awwww poor Roland
> You want to kill him or torture him? We can go with either...
eowyn> uhmmmm- whatever you want
eowyn> Sauron goes both ways
> Torture, but everyone thinks he's been killed. No chance in hell of rescue.... Damn, I'm just going full out for the angst, ain't I?
eowyn> lol- yus, but angst is fun!!
eowyn> i always do that to my charries!
eowyn> "no.. no dont rescue her... let her be tortured and maimed!!"
> true, but there *are* limits. One of the reasons Vinca's going on that quest - to try and pull herself back together.
eowyn> yah, thats why wyn is opening up an ice cream store!
> Cool. So Roland's stuck in Mordor's equivalent of The Pit of Despair and everyone think's he's been killed.... How should we post this?
eowyn> mmmm i guess just posts (story or non, either way works) in both people's journals
> Ok... is Sauron the type to send a mocking note by orc messenger?
eowyn> of course
> Something to Dooley, along the lines of how killing *him* would have been too easy, but killing his friends...
eowyn> *grins* *nods*
> and maybe including a tattered wraith cloak, just for kicks
eowyn> a bit of blooooood?
> do nazgul bleed? if so, go for it... Meanwhile, I'm gonna have to get a 'bloody' icon for the boy.
eowyn> lol, well everyone drinks nazzie blood
> I thought it was nazzie horse blood....
eowyn> well, ecy drank actual nazzie blood that one time but.. yah
eowyn> I'll include nazzie horse blood
> best 'bloody' shot I have of the actor [Michael Praed] is where he has the typical trickle from the corner of his mouth after being punched. Is that good enough, you think?
> *shakes her head* I know where to get a better shot for 'locked away', but it's barely bloody and I haven't made an icon of it yet.
> I can do that tonight, though. You post the message sometime tonight, and I'll have Roland's side posted by tomorrow.
> and the clamming has been sorted out. I love this group!
*For those of you reading who don't take part in interactive fiction or RPGs, clamming is the act of writing/portraying the thoughts, words, or deeds of another writer/player's character without their permission.
