Ruairmli (pronounced Roar-m-li) is a dwarf from Ered Mithrin, and a warrior dwarf at that. Whilst he may be skilled with the weapon of his choice (a hammer of sorts with a spike atop it) he is no stranger to intelligence and common sense. He is fully aware that strength as well as using his brain are the things that will keep him alive in a battle, and the day he subsitutes one for the other, or disregards one completely, he knows he will struggle deeply in the war. He has a fear of being alone, and so quickly finds friends to accompany him or vice versa, just so that he will never be alone at all.

Ruairmli likes to think he has many friends, simply because he's attached himself to so many people so that he may never be alone. Some may figure him clingy, but it's quite the contrary, whilst he fears abandonment, he knows that someday it will come to it and that he will have to deal with it one way or another. He has dwarf friends from many places, and is willing to make friends with anyone, including Elves should the occasion arise at any given point in his lifetime. He knows that Elves are a difficult species to befriend, but he does his best to at least try and make sure that he does not get on the wrong side of them, accepting that they are a much faster race when it comes to arming themselves and striking first. So for friends? He should have a plenty!

Being a dwarf, enemies come with the being, even if Ruairmli would prefer it not to. He is pretty sure that Elves are very unkind to dwarf peoples, and he knows for a fact that orcs and goblins have no clue what peace is; but this is when his warrior side comes out. He certainly doesn't mind the idea of having to kill a few dark creatures to get around in his life and to ensure that everyone is safe. He doesn't trust anything in the dark places, and will very rarely go there alone unless he absolutely must. He has never met a troll, but he certainly doesn't like the sounds of them and should they ever cross his path, he is sure that he would be prepared to either take them down or run very fast and very far.

He does not believe he is loveable, but much because he is not the type of person that people expect dwarves to be. Many of the dwarf women he has pursued has turned him down, and this has lead him to believe that he will never find love in his own place and thus, another reason why he is off adventuring and such. As much as he has his own goals, if he found his one true love along the way, then he'd have actually achieved an additional goal in his life. He doesn't know if he will live long enough to enjoy being in love, but he is certainly willing to give it a try should the right person come along and show him what he's missing!

Rian and Ruairmli

 Need to meet, clearly XD When and where they first run into each other makes a pretty big difference to their dynamics, so we're going to have to choose one...

A - In the Grey Mountains, somewhere between 2887-2920. Either i) when Rian's still a child (he could be put in charge of leaving her home if she's caught, though they wouldn't punish her due to being a girl?) or ii) after Kvas becomes a soldier. Ri doesn't like soldiers (minus Kvas, then) very much so it might be nice for her to meet a nice one. Though she'll probably dislike him on principle unless the Kvas link is figured out. And even then, she won't be very friendly.

B - On the road (2920-2935/7). i) pre Kvas-reunion. This is probably my least favourite option... While Rian's travelling. Still not fond of soldiers. But then she never really gets fond of soldiers. ii) Post Kvas-and-Rian reunion; Rian does a fair bit of travelling in the two years between meeting him again and settling in Ered Luin. They could meet then? Ruair could be one of the convincers to settling somehow? But since he's wandering, I don't know how...

C - While Rian's in Ered Luin or on one of her gallivants out (2937-).

Choose wisely, young one.

*ponders*

I like all the options... I do... So hard to choose one...

A - i) is probably a very good choice because it leaves them open to meet again on B - ii). With A - i) it gives Ruair a chance to prove they're not all bad them soldiers like and B - ii) he gets to be like "settle" and the reason he'd try to convince her is he needs someone to keep an eye on Kvas because he doesn't plan on sticking around.

I have an idea. We thread B - ii) and in it they recognise each other and reference that A - i) has happened? Or we can do both.

 Awww, daddy Ruair is adorable. So where would that be? If he knows Kvas is alive and in Ered Luin it'd have to be after their reunion, so also when exactly? Also she's gonna try and convince him right back. And probably call him old.

Ruairmli && Rian

I like the plan - we should thread B and that way we can jump straight in.

Daddy Ruair is adorable - even if he isn't really Kvas' dad xD I think he'd stick around Ered Luin for a while and then when he realises Rian and Kvas are, yanno, friends - he can safely say Kvas can cope without him and leave again. He's okay with being called old. So possibly the where would be Ered Luin and then when would be... a few months after he's decided to stop there - and the when... I've just realised they don't have a year for that thread. T.A 2903 is the year Ruair and Kvas meet the first time etc and I can't remember what year Kvas leaves Ered Mithrin for Ered Luin but we'll say two years after that Ruair comes around?

*Consults timeline notes* Rian leaves Ered Mithrin very early in 2920, Kvas is exiled that autumn and gets to Ered Luin in 2922. You just mentioned this in the cbox XD Anyways so - Rian takes a LOT longer on the journey than Kvas and their reunion thread is in 2935, and then she settles in 2937. So, somewhere between 2935 and 2937. She travels a lot in these years, though she also spends time in Ered Luin. At this time they could both be anywhere and don't have to be in the Blue Mountains - we can set it there if you want, I'm just giving options~

How's this for an idea - they meet early T.A. 2937, that way he can convince her to stay in Ered Luin with Kvas and MAYBE that then leads to her decision to settle? The idea that Kvas isn't going to have the people he needs? Then Ruair can fall off the planet for a couple more years. S'up to you though! Rian's yours and if she already has a better reason to settle then that's fine. But Ruair will be leaving Kvas even after a short reunion. Poor souls' best friend married his girl so he's a lonely man.

The road goes ever on and on etc.

Sounds good! Rian has reasons for settling, but as of yet not much of a catalyst beyond time passing. So I am all for Ruair being a decent part of the convincing.

 Why does he always leeeeaave HE HAS TO COME BACK OKAY 'Kay! So, early 2937, where? Outskirts of the Blue Mountains? They could both be heading in, or Ruair could be leaving as Rian arrives, or any combination? She sort of fails to go see Kvas in person when she actually lands. Rian is awful. Or anything? Gondor? And as for precise situation... *shrugs* One stumbles on the other's camp? IDEAS. They desert me.

I think it'd be awesome if the two met, if it was dark, when Ruair's on his way out. It'll be feelsy in an indirect way! he has to leave because if he stays in one place too long he starts to think about home and then it all goes to pot. So while he's on his way out of the blue mountains and she's on her way in?

Ruairmli & Féren
So a little birdy told me Ruairmli is sometimes in the Iron Hills...and I think it would be a most entertaining idea for these two to meet! They are the same age...yet Féren is already a high positioned general in the army...no dobut, however, that Féren would see potential in Ruair. He might even be around in the Battle of the Five Armies! Although that's up to you. Jusr let me know what you think of throwing these two together, Pip.

Ok, so it hits me that Ruairmli and Líknví have no threads and I think we should remedy this :)

Now, I know he comes by later to talk to Astir after Kvas' supposed death, and Lí will most definitely be there for that, but what say you another or so?

We could have him help her out as a tiny Dwarfling, or, hmm, how long exactly does Ruair stay in the Grey Mountains? Líknví's dates that I totally didn't have to double check, or maybe I did :D are 2886-2933 (granted she's a baby in 28 something :D

I suppose run ins in Ered Luin before all the madness would be plausible too but not sure.

Anyway, Grey Mountains I'm thinking he could just aid the child somewhere in there where she's old enough to be grabbing stuff for the house from the market and runs into trouble or such (it's easy to have happen)?

Thoughts?
