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.
Isabeau wrote: 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.
Imrhiriel wrote: 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?
Not at present. That doesn't mean that it won't happen at some point in the future. But Liahan's very quiet and hasn't spoken to me yet.
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...
He's not that good a swordsman. He likes that blade because it's light and easy to handle in close quarters. Good for carrying between your teeth while boarding, don't you know....;-)
