Ahoy and everything

Ahoy wanderer. Since high fantasy was a major influence (obsession maybe?) on our younger days, let not the trammels of realworld rob us of those moments when Gandalfian staff and massive armies thrown against a Dark Lord made for a happy half-hour of blissful daydreaming.

The story can take any twist and turn as the author sees fit, as long as it remains aesthetically true to the setting and timeline (no bazookas please). The run-on will be carried forward on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. If an author is unable to post in his turn, please notify the next in line.
I think that’s about it. Forth Eorlingaaass!! 😛
