Princes of Dol Amroth

 February, 25 2006

Questions about the life and times of Imrahil and his family can be asked here, including questions about Ultimatums, Kin-Strife and the shorter stories. Discussions about Brand can go either here or in the Best-Loved Son thread, since his stories sort of overlap both cycles.

Since Brand is not a lord of a major region, he's probably one of a bunch that Aragorn could have chosen from. It's actually probably merit/birth in his case rather than merit/land.

I think a pool of possible candidates for a few of the seats is very plausible, and to choose Brand, especially if he has earned it, seems reasonable.

I contemplated at one point having Brand end up with Starfall, the Numenorean blade, but I'm thinking that Andrahar might petition Imri to give that to Liahan, whose family is well-pedigreed but not well-moneyed. He's a swordsman worthy of a blade like that.

I have a soft spot for Liahan (starting with his name ;)), and I'm glad to know he is so well regarded. Actually, if I may state a wish for a future story: You have given Lorend his story, do you have any plans for writing one for Liahan?

And strangely enough, the mysterious Elven blade ends up with Erchirion. And saves his bacon on a voyage that I might end up writing closer to Halloween.

I know it's silly of me, but somehow I have problems seeing Erchirion as a swordsman. He must have sufficient skills, sea battles are not always fought over distances, what with boarding etc., but I have this impression of him that he is not especially coordinated, and I'm very curious for this story that will correct that impression...

Elphir will in the long run, suffer a bit from being a pale imitation of a very extraordinary man. Though he's never a whiny jerk like Daerlath, even on his worse day.

Yes. Elphir is a perfectly fine man of his own, and he has inherited most of his parents' considerable skills and qualities. What he doesn't have is Imrahil's flamboyance and his "pirate streak".
