OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.
Not ignoring everyone, I was just trying to decide how I felt about saying anything. I'm not unaware that I've not updated in a good while now and I'm also aware that folks have been waiting patiently for years now (Was it really 2002? I thought it was 2003!). I'm a bit afraid that if I spill the beans I won't want to finish anything. But in the interest of giving something back, I did post part of the answer back in March during B2MeM. If you read the last three chapters of Dwimordene's excellent story Armageddon Will Not Be Televized (http://www.silmarillionwritersguild.org/b2mem2010/viewstory.php?sid=12&textsize=0&chapter=6) you'll have a least part of the answer to the question.
Some folks have already read my stuff there. For those who didn't, B2MeM was really cool this year-they had designed a questing game involving Morgoth's return and the battle at the end of the world. There was role-playing as well as writing and you could take literally any character in Tolkien's canon or an original character of your own. I played Imrahil and Dwimordene played Halbarad. There were tons of Silm Elves, a reformed first-age vampire, a hobbit from the Seventh Age who was apparently living in a national park in America and many others. Imrahil went on a quest to the Valar to speak for Ar-Pharazon and the Numenoreans shut under their mountains. Halbarad was involved with a Haradric waif from the Seventh Age and kept be-bopping back and forth in time and getting shot. In the link I've given you, Imrahil gets sucked into one of Halbarad's time trips and they end up in Umbar (Amber) in the Seventh Age.
Not meaning to be coy here, and I've discussed with Una about her posting her story that has been sitting around since about 2003 and answers the question, but I think she would like to do some re-writing before she does.
