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.
Nargil asked: In your universe are the beacons just to let the outlying land like Lossarnach know or do they go to Rohan like in the movies. And how does word get to Dol-amroth, it seems a bit far for Imri to get his army there in a day like Tolkien says.
They go almost to Rohan like in the movie-I used Fonstadt's map to pick the one I wanted Heth to live near. As for Dol Amroth, I think Tolkien mentions at some point another line of beacons that stretches west to Belfalas. I can't remember where I read that, but I figure they exist. It just makes sense-beacons are a lot faster than sending riders clear to the coast.
More random questions
1)Is there another chapter or another one shot that follows reparitions?
No. What you see is what you get there. Now some of the consequences might be covered in Silver Swan but I've not decided yet.
2)Do we ever find out who Boromi was to marry?
Haven't decided yet about that either. There might be a story there about the girl, or I might never do anything with it.
3)When Andra fights with two swords does he use Nightshade and another blade or does he have two that match? And does he have a normal straight sword as well as the scimitars?
I think he has another very nice scimitar to use when he fights two-sword with Nightshade. But I also think he can do it with straight swords, and he has a very nice one, and another almost as nice to pair it with.
Andra really doesn't spend his money on much but weapons, at least until he gets Brand.
Well, OK, weapons, massages, an instructor in mystical hand-to-hand fighting techniques from Khand and Haradric cooking when he can find it.
5)How did Imri get his ear pierced, was it back in his sailor days or did he get it done before then,
Good question! I think he did it before he was a sailor, because it looked dashing. Probably on a dare, when he was less than sober.
also does he still have it done in CMC or did he let it heal up after he gave Aisha the earing in Ultimatums?
He got another earring. He still has the pierced ear in CMC, though I've never mentioned it.
6)Do we get to see Andra and Adrahil's conversation after the last chapter of Ultimatums and will they ever go out to tea?
Not sure yet for the third time! It seems to be my week for it. I'll let you know. Sometimes things that happen off-stage just stay off-stage.
