I really want to play! Every time I log in and see other PCs my brain freezes. It's been like this for over a year. I think I have PTSD, playing-thain-shyness-disorder.

Anyway, happy weekend playaz x

Thain is, in Tolkien's works, a hobbit military leader.

It's not from Tolkien's works. "Thain" is an alternate spelling of "Thane" or "Thegn" which is a lower-ranked aristocrat/noble soldier in Anglo-Saxon England and the Scandinavian countries in I think the 8th-11th century or something.

Most of the non-Elvish words in Tolkien have a real-world meaning, I suspect. He was after all a scholar of Anglo-Saxon language and culture.

I was aware Thain meant something like minor noble, but that sounds a bit different from military leader.

Evil brings men together.
If it were not for evil, Paladins would be lazy fat drunk holy men.
Whenever I'm caught between two evils, I take the one I've never tried.
If you kill one person you are a murderer, if you kill thousands you are a warlord.
Mages stand behind others just long enough to gain the power to stand on top of them.
