Away to Valinor!

Postby Kortoso » Tue Feb 13, 2018 4:46 pm

Well, I have chosen to retire in Thailand and I am leaving next week.
What of the Ranger Kortoso? Could he have been invited to join the Elves in Valinor?

There's little enough need for fantasy there. I will be living in a 700-year-old walled city among a people magical (or strange and enchanting anyway). The mountains nearby haunted by the ghosts of tigers and black panthers. This is the land from which the Oliphants come! (They are calm and friendly when not being prodded to war.)

I will stay in touch with my Ranger brethren, but I will be living in this new land for the foreseeable future.
There are no safe paths in this part of the world. Remember you are over the Edge of the Wild now, and in for all sorts of fun wherever you go.

Good luck from me also, that sounds like a new adventure!

What a remarkable adventure Kortoso! I am so happy for you and I admire your courage and intrepid spirit! I salute such a gallant and adventurous brother in arms and pray the Valar guide your every step! Namarie!

May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.

Good fortune. I lived in Thailand for some years back in the mid-70s. Loved it there.
