    I’m launching a call for help to ask for a name for the new category for the forum, that i plan to create to regroup all elements related to MERP matters which are directly linked to Mithril figurines.
    As I told in the Prancing Pony, I’d want an entry in a read-only forum, for each MERP character in the whold mithril range, with exhaustive information about each of the Characters.
    Moderator for this category would be, if he accepts, Gavin, who has all the material and references to help in this matter…

    Now the problem is to find a proper name for this category… with a “construction” similar to the other categories’ names :
    “some place of…” “Middle-earth Location” or
    “some place/belonging of…” “Middle-Earth character”

    But for this occasion , since it is MERP, the location or character would have to be a specific MERP name

    What do you think of “The Dark Archives of Er-Murazor”
    (for Info, Er-Murazor is the true name of the Witch-King in the “extended MERP universe”)

    I’d be honoured, Master Gildor.

    How about…the most outlandish of all MERPy stuff.

    “The Court of Ardor”

    :)

    (I’d actually planned to do a Cyradon version of that supplement at one point)

    Why not, I did not know about Ardor, it seems a bit “short” for a title but if people like it I will put this name :)

    Please don’t hesitate to post your comments and ideas for the title, this is your forum as well as mine :)

    but Minas Tirith is not MERP specific… :(

    I don’t do MERP, but ‘The Court of Ardor’ has a nice sound to it ;)

    Court of Ardor…

    Lovely name.

    Possibly the ultimate avatar of everything that was wrong and over the top and gonzo about MERP when it got going.

    Imagine, if you will, a coven of ancient Noldo with lots of names with mysterious Xs in them, who were in the thrall of Morgoth and were setting out to destroy the sun itself. And all from a dark citadel in the utter south of Middle Earth in a place called Mumakan.

    I’d love to reuse the name for something else though. It does sound lovely and evocative.

    Agree with Dave (on both counts). It “sounds” Tolkienesque enough not to offend anyone.

    ok for “court of Ardor” then :)

    an adjective for “Court” ? Royal? Dark? whatever (to have a longer name)

    The High Court of Ardor?
    The Library of Ardor?

    I have no particular preference.

    Why does it need to be longer? Court of Ardor works just fine.

    The category is now created, I have put Gavin moderator of this category.

    I will copy the articles you provides , Gavin, in each corresponding section.
    You can already see all the missing references I need, and anyway, all MERP figurines are mentionned and organized :)

    Only you and me can post on this forum but everybody can see it :)

    Done the first few updates. More coming this evening.

    The eagle eyed will notice that I am using Chris Seeman’s Mithril writeups in Other Hands as a source of background information. Indeed, Seeman’s notes (being better researched, more linguistically accurate) will automatically trump a MERP source.

    so there.

    :D

    I agree!
