Of Elmö

During the "Battle Against the Chalkotu" storyline in 2014, I added a paragraph just for flavor:

Quote
Xenograg's contingent...now numbered twenty-four. Xenograg had accepted six Eldicoreans into temporary service, including--scandalously--a young Eldar male. The elf was given the highest position of honor possible, that of Xenograg's personal bannerman.

It was a throwaway line solely for my own amusement. The elf was never mentioned again or named. Upon learning of the death of Teleperien's player, I looked for a way to "announce" the disappearance of her realm of Eldicor. Prior to that, I had been looking add new persons of hench to Xenograg's retinue. These two ideas came together for "Eldicor is Gone", and the latter idea launched in "Equerry".

For the record, the umlaut makes the correct pronunciation of his name "EL-meh". Blame J.R.R. Tolkien not me.  :D

"The stupidest creative act is still a creative act, and that the real gap isn't between the mediocre and great work. The real gap is between getting started and doing nothing. If you've created something, even if it's stupid, you've put yourself in a position to do more." - Clay Shirky
