The Warband of Imladris are a rank 10 Kinship who hail from Rivendell. They are chosen from the elves who dwell within the Vale and from certain rare individuals from the race of men. The warband follow an elven way of life under the patronage of Lord Elrond. They honour the last Alliance of Elves and Men often spoken about by Lords and Ladies of Rivendell.
All classes are welcome in the kinship, all that is asked is that your background is justified. The varied backgrounds from the two races can often lead to some very original roleplay.
Our role is to be able to have immersive, enjoyable roleplay with our characters not only as they go about the work of the Lord of Rivendell but also as they explore Middle Earth.
With the destruction of Eregion the White Council decided that it would be abandoned in favour of Imladris (Rivendell). Near the end of the second age the Last Alliance of Elves and Men was formed and the combined army departed from Imladris led by Elendil and Gil-galad. In the battles that ensued both Elendil and Gil-galad were killed in the Siege of Barad-dur, but both Elrond and Cirden who were stood at their side survived.
Elrond returned to Imladris to dwell with his family, look to the defence of his people and the security of the Vale.
In the year 2851TA Gandalf meets with the White Council and Elrond decides send riders out to gather news from across Arda. Thus the Warband we know now is formed led by the Lady Elisbeth Starfire. Given to her command are two warriors the first being Tagos a young warrior skilled with sword and bow who came to Imladris from the fringes of Mirkwood. The second was Khalis Imieran a young promising warrior who had ridden with Elladan for many years as one of his company. The three gathered a few others to their warband and were sent out on many varied missions by the Council of Elrond in service to Imladris. In time Elrond saw the need to encompass menfolk in this unique group to enable them to fulfil their role more effectively. Thus the warband came to be a group honouring the last Alliance of Elves and Men.
