Third son of Tâlm, Bâli  (ca. SA 1565 -1714) never recovered from envy of his brothers, the High-lord Rôn and King Bân, who despised their wavering young brother. Untouched by the desire to rule Rûrîk, Bâli instead concentrated upon forging strongerand lighter weapons, but success eluded him, as did a wife. He died alone at 149 years of age in mid-Second Age.


The Spelling of some Names was altered to move away from pseudo-old Norse Names, which represent the Language of northern Rhovanion and would have been unknown to the eastern Dwarves.

Original forms:

  • Bain - Bân
  • Balin - Bâli
  • Róin - Rôn
  • Thalin - Tâlin
  • Ruuriik - Rûrîk
