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.
Denethor makes Imrahil promise to bring all of his mounted troops in Discovery. The 500 number I derived from Fonstad's estimation. He also brought 1200 foot. I'm assuming he left at least that many foot in Dol Amroth, perhaps as many as 2000, and he does have his navy to help patrol.
Thanks for the clarification. I totally forgot about the foot troops.
I'm very glad you like those two because I was worried they didn't sound Tolkienish enough, but I also didn't want to change them now that I've become used to them.
They don't sound like most of the Sindarin-derived names we encounter in Gondor in LotR, that's true. But I was recently reminded (through stories by Soledad and JunoMagic, I think), that M-e's population consists not primarily of descendants of the refugees, that in fact they are a minority, so there would be many naming-"traditions" other than Sindarin. So if Esteven's father is Haradric, and Liahan's ancestor's served ImrazŰr, that would make the names Haradric and AndŻnaic, respectively. What you and Soledad created of Haradric, and what little is known (and even less by me, hehe) of AdŻnaic, the names seem to fit in that pattern.
re: Elrohir. I like him as well, though he riles me a lot (along with your characters, I guess). But everytime I get really annoyed at him, he has an emotional or philosophical or just plain friendly phase, and I just have to forgive him.
