Here is my version of Faramir

I always loved this character too. He had to live in the shadow of his older brother Boromir, but proved to be much wiser and stronger than him.

After the crowning of Aragorn, he and Eowyn rebuilt Ithilien.

He should work with or without expansion packs, but I do have all packs so far.

My sharing policy:
I've decided everything that I've made can be boiled, fried, folded, spindled mutilated...Whatever! My only stipulation is that everything stays 100% FREE. Beyond that, a little nod for credit is nice, but I'm not going to get worked up over it if you don't.

This works fine for my neighborhoods. It's a lot more complicated with my sims though. They are full of other people's work and there is a wide variety of terms of use among them. So you shouldn't repost them as is. If you want to take the sim face and slap different skin, hair, eyes, clothes on it... fine, have at it.

**Don't interpret this to mean you have the right to use the custom content I used without credit to the original creator though.**

Love Faramir too, but not that much in the movie (TT), he's better in the book (TT).
In the movie he's so mean and cold hearted, but in the book... well he's better there, more nice and he talks to the hobbits...

Your Faramir looks really lovely... I'm sure he's nice
Thanks, and keep up the good work!

All your LOTR Sims are wonderful but Faramir is magnificent. You have truly captured his character in this Sim.

Thanks all.

I didn't much like the way he was portrayed in the movie either. They should have stuck more closely to the book.

I love your Faramir! He's good looking and (again) pretty much what I always imagined he would look like. He's nice in books, but pretty stupid in the movie... I think this is more book Faramir... Thank you!!!

You can thank Phillipa Boyens for the way Faramir was treated in the films. I heard that the actor who played him, David Wenham, was was also displeased after reading the books himself, but it was basically either do it the way the writers wanted it or lose his job. I do like this interprtation of Faramir though. Good Job!

I can't unpack this one - it says I'm missing expansion pack data. I have Nightlife and Uni but not OFB so I guess doesn't work without OFB. looks nice though :-)

I went to Gara's site, and the section on Male is empty. How can I find the mesh? Can you possibly give a direct link to that specific mesh? If I could read Japanese, I would take more time than I already have to find it. I tried using Google search and the translation page, but I still couldn't find it.

Thank you so much.

Well, I did try again, but I still couldn't see anything under Male. It was blank. So, I viewed the source, saved it as an HTML document on my desk top, opened the page, copied the end of the URL and went to a different page (http://www.geocities.jp/garapon9/t001m01.html). That is the link I used to see anything under male. I finally found it!

Thank you for creating these. I loved the movies. (No, I haven't read the books. I just don't have the time. My husband has read them several times. My daughter has read them about 13 or 14 times.) I do enjoy your version of the characters. Thank you for putting so much time and effort into them.
