Aiwiel

Elf of Rivendell

Aiwiel was a High Elf from Rivendell. She often journeys south to Eregion to wander for a season among its ruins, listening to voices from the past. Aiwiel knows that locked inside the ancient stones dotting the landscape are the memories of many who lost their lives in the war against Sauron, and that many birds still sing songs that were taught to their kin long ago. She knows that because her brothers worked those stones, and she and her sisters taught the birds their songs. When they sought the Havens long ago or died in the war, Aiwiel has no kin still living in Middle-earth, and she desperately clings to what memories she is left to mourn. Aiwiel is soft-spoken, wise, and wary of any wanderer she might encounter in the wild. Visiting the ruins, she spends long days sitting against half-crumbled walls of stone, or listening to the song of the birds. What she hears she keeps for herself, but she won’t refuse help to travellers who show respect for the past and who are not out to depredate the land of its hidden treasures.

Burzash of Carn Dûm

Gundabad Orc Officer

Burzash was a Greater Orc Warlord who was among many of his kin that are being drawn out of their lairs in the mountains to journey north towards Carn Dûm, Burzash is not satisfied leading only his own tribe. Moving across Angmar, Burzash has set his will to dominating lesser Orcs and uniting them under his banner. He is a fierce creature, commanding and merciless. Gathering Orcs, Goblins and Hill-men to him, he moves across the Grey Waste, slaughtering those who do not bow to his will. He typically travels with a large warband composed of Goblins of Carn Dûm, Hill-men of Rhudaur, and reinforced by a pair of great Mountain-Trolls, whom he had attracted to his service under the promise of war and slaughter. The entire warband counts as Bloodthirsty and are a Vengeful Band.

Having recently come into manhood, Bradan has been charged by his chief tain with the exploration of the lands north of the borders of Dunland. Though he speaks only a few words in the Common Speech, Bradan is curious when he encounters strangers. Typically, he observes them from a distance and retreats if he falls under their gaze. Bradan doesn’t know why his chieftain is seeking news from the north, though he suspects that his lord is reporting to a greater, unknown master.

Bloodstump the Hunter

Hill troll born of hope

Bloodstump the Hunter was a Hill Troll chief who led the Hill-Trolls that pursued and slew Arador, chieftain of the Dúnedain, in T.A. 2930. A cruel and evil creature, Bloodstump didn’t need a reason to hunt for man-flesh, but he started to relentlessly prey on those dangerous little creatures that came hunting so far north after a visit to Mount Gram. The Troll entered the Orc-fastness following a strange urge his dull senses could not explain, and emerged from his depths wielding a great black mace, a dreadful weapon forged in Carn Dûm when Angmar threatened the North.

Armed with that strange gift, Bloodstump began his pursuit of the Rangers. On one fateful eve, his war-band encountered Arador and his men. Bloodstump cannily let other Hill-trolls rush forward at the onset of battle, and closed in when the tall Men were wounded and exhausted and their bright swords dulled. The great Hill-Troll chief and his bodyguard threw down the last of the Rangers and captured their chieftain for sport, thus securing Bloodstump’s fame. Bloodstump’s own limbs are hale and frightfully hearty slabs of flesh hard as stone.

Berk the Gatekeeper

Stone Troll Deviant

Berk the Gatekeeper was a Stone Troll who lived somewhere near the Great East Road. Signs of his territory are plain to those who look: beech trees and pines knocked over or torn from their roots and scattered along the road on a stretch where the hillside rises up to the north and drops steeply to the south. Berk sometimes piles up the trees across the road as a barricade to force travellers to stop and move them. When Berk’s luck holds, their work lasts till dark, or even better the travellers camp there for the night, and he can emerge and pillage.

Berk is quite proud of his scheme. He is even prouder of his home: a Troll-hole where the three Trolls lurked before they got themselves turned to stone a few years ago. Berk is a Greater Stone Troll. He does not always tend his gate and sometimes when hunger drives him he ranges far from his Troll-hole in search of fresh meat. Without a hiding place to retreat to, he will exhibit Great Might in his fear and anger.

Damron

Elven Smith of Rivendell

Damron was an elven smith who lived in Rivendell. In the year T.A. 2951, a deep change seems to have been brought upon him. This occurred when the young man known as Estel reached the age of twenty and his true name and ancestry were finally revealed to him. Damron was previously charged with the keeping of the shards of the great sword Narsil, and he was the one who presented them to Aragorn, as a token of his identity as the true Heir of Isildur. No one knows what Aragorn told Damron upon receiving the precious heirloom, but the young man seemed transfixed as he uttered a few words to the Elven-smith. Since that day, Damron has devoted himself to the art of mending and restoring ancient devices and weapons, abandoning all other pursuits.

Dreorg the Wargling

Dreorg the Wargling was once one of the Hill-men living in the vale of Gundabad, to the east of the Misty Mountains. Long ago there was a chieftain-priest of the Gundabad Hill- men named Dreorg. Dreorg was a master of the sorcery by which some Hill-men leave their bodies and take the shape of wolves by night to hunt and slay. As these things go, Dreorg’s rule was overthrown. As his rivals battered down the door to his hall, Dreorg fled his body and his spirit joined a Warg-pack nearby. As a spear plunged into his heart, Dreorg’s spirit seized onto one of the wild wolves and refused to depart. The two spirits struggled but Dreorg proved to be the master. Many years have passed. Now Dreorg is a Warg chief, master of a band of cunning wolves filled with malice who moved West into Eriador. They know their chief is slightly mad — sometimes his snarling seems to be two voices vying with each other — but he is wise and vicious and boundlessly cruel, which gives them all strength.

Erestor Nolpedáro

Erestor Nolpedáro probably the most prominent individual in the household of Elrond, second only to Glorfindel. He is counted among the wise, and he is the chief of Elrond’s personal counsellors. He is also a scribe and an illuminator of manuscripts – many books and parchments kept in Rivendell have been written and decorated by the skilled hand of Erestor, but his cunning was not limited to that. In a small building filled with glass vessels of many shapes and sizes, Erestor prepares miruvor, the precious cordial of Imladris. The wise Elf distils it using more than one hundred herbs and plants, in a formula known only to himself. The counsellor of Elrond leaves the House of his Master twice a year for several days, when he goes about the mountain dales to search for the ingredients he needs. Actually, Erestor concocts several types of Miruvor, and is always eager to experiment with new substances and processes. The most popular is his travelling cordial, a strong liquor to be drunk in small sips and known to invigorate the heart, body and spirit. Another is a medicinal tonic used by Elrond when his skills as a healer are required. This version of the cordial requires a more complex preparation, and a much longer ageing time. Another simpler version of the drink is a less potent spirit, served at the high table in the Great Hall at the end of most meals. Some among the Elves of Rivendell say that all versions of the cordial of Imladris share a fundamental constituent: a small measure of a nectar distilled of old from flowers that once blossomed in the Undying West. This is said to be a bright yellow liquid contained in a crystal vial, kept safe in Erestor’s most private reserve. It would be a great misfortune if the invaluable substance would run out and found to be irreplaceable, or be lost or stolen.

Lindir

Lindir is the seneschal of Elrond, entrusted with the stewardship of his household. He is certainly the most familiar face to all those who enter the valley, as he is usually the first individual they encounter on their arrival, and the last one they see upon leaving. Lindir seems to possess the uncanny ability to be found wherever his help is required, and whenever he is looked for. Guests who think that Lindir is just the butler of the house should think again, though – the soft-spoken Elf is among Elrond’s most trusted friends and his personal squire in times of war. He used to leave Imladris on errands and missions, but has refrained from doing so since the Lady Celebrían was seized by Orcs in the Redhorn Pass and he failed to rescue her before she was harmed by her captors. When he is not attending to his services, Lindir dedicates himself to the construction and perfection of musical instruments. Probably the most accomplished luthier east of the Sea, Lindir also possesses a most musical voice, but he is not easily persuaded to sing in the presence of listeners.

Gishak Gashnaga

Gishak Gashnaga was a Greater Orc who was thought to have been defeated in the North Downs. Hailing from Mount Gram, he was the only survivor of the Orcs’ encounter with the Rangers. Protected by darkness, he was able to crawl away, and found refuge among the ruins of an ancient hill-fort in the east of the North Downs. There, he found a complex of tunnels to hide in, and now plans to attract more of his kin there, to establish in secret a camp of Goblins and Orcs. Under Gishak’s command, these foul creatures would plague the land for years to come.

Kyna of Enedwaith

Kyna was an adventurous young woman. She was one of the Wild Men of Enedwaith that rarely travel inland as far as Tharbad. Boasting her desire to fish in “unchallenged waters”, she leaves her village for weeks on end to reach the crumbling town. The ruins fascinate her, and she often spends more hours exploring them than tending to her duties as a huntress and f isher woman for her people. She knows the fens west of Tharbad quite well, better than any other of her kind. Though she is curious regarding the travellers who pass through the realm, she is wary of the many threats that plague the waters surrounding the Greyflood.

Mad Ostley

Robert Pugh lotr

Mad Ostley was a white-haired and wide-eyed man of Bree. For years he has travelled into the Barrow Downs seeking treasure and riches, but with each failed excavation he returns to the civilised world a bit more unhinged. In the past few years he has taken to rambling in quiet whispers to himself about “dead kings” and “cold hear ts.” While the locals regard him as someone who has “gone cracked looking for trinkets,” there is the occasional hint of wisdom in his words. He still journeys out into the Barrow Downs each spring, never returning with anything more than madness in his eyes.

References

Sambrog

Sambrog was the Wight-king of the Barrow Downs and all blighted creatures who dwell in that land. Whether he is the corrupted spirit of the last King of Cardolan who was entombed in the Barrow-downs before the Great Plague or the malicious spirit of some fell captain who once served Angmar, none can know for certain, for his name has been lost to the past. Now he dwells in the greatest tomb of the Barrow-downs, where his vile will sets all the lingering dead that dwell there to an evil purpose. The few who have laid eyes upon the Wight-king describe an ancient skeletal warrior clad in broken armour, bearing a cracked shield and wielding a tarnished black blade. His eyes burn with a frozen light and he moves with the slow certainty of death. By his dark will all dead things of the Barrow-downs are driven forth, a mockery of the armies of Cardolan that once made this realm noble. He is a terrible foe in battle, his very presence spreading corruption, and even the Rangers of the North would not dare face him openly. He leaves his hidden tomb only under the cover of darkness, though in recent times he has become more restless and driven. None know to what evil task he has now been set, only that he seeks to bring all that was once living or might be slain into his growing army.

Radgul the Orc-Chief

TCG Orc chieftain

Radgul a wily, sneering, and deadly old Orc who was the chieftain of all the Orcs of Mount Gram. He held designs on greater things than his own mountain. Radgul and his Orcs are removed by a hundred miles from Mount Gundabad where Bolg ruled, and the Orcs of Mount Gram never made it to the Battle of Five Armies. At the time, Radgul considered that an insult, but afterwards he was happy to have missed the debacle. He only wished, in the secrecy of thought, that Bolg’s army had been destroyed even more thoroughly so he could march on Gundabad and take the throne for himself.

Radgul wouldn’t have to think hard about sticking a knife in Gorgol and all his Gundabad rivals, too, if the opportunity came up. What’s more likely to foul things up for Radgul is his old grudge against Hobbits. If any Orcs of Mount Gram spy even a single Hobbit near the mountain, the Orcs will take it as a warning of war and Radgul will be right at the front, preparing to march on the Shire even though such a march will scatter his followers and leave them vulnerable to threats from every side.

Radgul is patient. He knows Bolg’s offspring Gorgol covets the throne. but he knows Gorgol remains a laughingstock after his headlong flight from the battle. Radgul is not in any of the factions of Mount Gundabad, but he doesn’t need to be. He is counting on Gorgol’s ambition to cause just enough strife that the next time there’s a crisis, Gundabad’s tribes will make a meal of it and Mount Gram’s tribes will step in to do things right.

Of course, Radgul and his servants watch it under cover of darkness, slipping between the shadows cast by massive stones that have been worn into odd shapes by the progress of years, ready to ambush any travellers. The gully itself winds to and fro, with several pathways that separate from the main cleft only to double back, go in endless circles or lead to dead ends where would-be assassins wait for easy prey.

Some say that it was true that Ulfúr slew a fellow minstrel, though the cause was disputed.

Éoheort son of Éobrand

Resting Rohirrim Man

Éoheort was the son Éobrand. Born in T.A. 2935 in the Eastfold town of Aldburg, he was the eldest of four children and grew up learning the ways of horsemanship from his father, a gifted horse-herd that bred many of Aldburg’s valiant steeds. He learned the way of the sword and shield as a boy, and he was gifted with a horse of his very own on his 12th birthday. Éoheort named him Ethelwine, meaning “noble-friend” in the tongue of his people, and horse and rider soon became like brothers. When Éoheort came of age in T.A. 2951, he entered the service of Esmund, son of the late Third Marshal of the Mark, Edwin. Wishing to do his part in defending his beloved country, he joined with Esmund’s éored, knowing that it was the most renowned and active of the Eastfold. On more than one occasion, Éoheort rode to the far reaches of the Eastemnet with the éored to guard against invaders and outlaws and in T.A. 2953 he accompanied the éored to Edoras, where he witnessed the crowning of Thengel.

During his years of continued service in the éored of Esmund, Éoheort grew to become a valiant and fierce warrior, never shying away from the battle-fury that comes upon the warriors of the Mark. As a reward for his deeds, he was given a helm crested with great plumes of horse hair, and he pledged to lead his fellow riders through a bold example. In T.A. 2957, Éoheort’s younger brother Éomód, a rider in a smaller éored of the East-mark, was killed by orcs while patrolling near the borders of the White Mountains. Stricken with grief, Éoheort returned to Aldburg to mourn the passing of his brother, all the while swearing vengeance upon the orcs that felled his kin. With the blessing of Esmund, Éoheort and his younger sister Éohild, a shieldmaiden, took a company of riders from his éored and rode down the orcish host, slaughtering them upon the plains.

In the years since his brother’s passin, Éoheort continued to ride in the Éored of Esmund, now with his sister counted amongst the riders. As Thengel King strives to redeem the honour squandered by his father, so does Éoheort strive to gain renown, slaying those who threaten the Riddermark. With sword in hand and Ethelwine to carry him, he rides each day with a determination worthy of the songs that fill the halls of Edoras.

Bodidbras Bolger

Adam Driver Hobbit

Bodidbras Bolger, nicknamed Skinny or Bodi for short, was a Hobbit of the Shire. While being called Skinny, Bodi can really ‘pack it away’, as they say, apparently without any impact on his waistline. He earned the nickname Skinny less for his profile than for his astonishing ability to hide all that food away in a hitherto undiscovered second stomach. Bodi’s parents told him early on that if wanted more food he was going to have to cook it himself, so he did, and discovered that he quite enjoyed the kitchen. Although not rich, he did eventually inherit enough that he never really had to work, and in looking for some way to “make himself useful” he decided to write a cookbook.

A decade later that cookbook, which at that point was titled “An Encyclopaedia of Recipes of the Northern Kingdoms”, had grown to several volumes and contained as much history, biography, herb-lore, artwork, and etymology as it did actual recipes. Bodi recognized that the information available within the Shire was limited, and that in order to “complete” his project, he was going to have to venture beyond the safety of his lifelong home. He is no great traveller, and most certainly not an ‘adventurer’ but duty calls, and so he set forth on his ‘Research Expedition’. Equipped with writing materials, a few favourite pots and pans and knives, his trusty sling, and a map of the lands East of the Shire, he set forth to discover, document, and devour recipes past, present, and future.

Arinbeorn the Tall

Arinbeorn was a Beorning slayer. He believes that he is called “the Tall” by his fellow Beornings because of his imposing stature, but those same friends could tell you that the nickname derives more from the improbability of the tales he tells in his booming voice, the embellishments growing with each re-telling. As a boy Arinbeorn loved the winter, because that season afforded the most opportunities to hear the tales and songs of elders. He memorized all of them, but most of all he loved the tales of dragons, and he decided that one day he would kill a dragon. To this end he put forth all his effort, constructing and defeating elaborate mock dragons in the woods, practicing lightning quick spear attacks, seeking out imagined dragon lairs in the nearby hills, trying to build up an immunity to fire, and pestering any travellers for news of dragons. Arinbeorn was one of the few of his people to have believed the stories of a dragon on the other side of the Mirkwood, and it was with regret bordering on despair that he learned of the death of Smaug. He felt cheated, but in the last few years, he has convinced himself that there are yet dragons remaining in the world and that he will still have his chance. In fact, he has already composed the first few stanzas of an epic song about the deed.

He arms himself with long-hafted axe, dagger, and spear. His hound companion, Wulf, is never far from his side and though only 28 summers of age, his skin, like that of many Woodmen is showing signs of the many days spent in the Wilderland – ruddy, tanned, and weather beaten.

Alun, known as The Sparrow, was a Woodman of Wilderland. As a child, he lost his parents, who were killed during during an orc raid just before the Battle of Five Armies took place at Erebor. Sparrow's father was a Warden of his people as well. From his death was recovered his long sword, a rare item for a Woodman of Wilderland. Sparrow in some sense hungers for his father's sword and the skill to use it. He longs to wield the sword as once did his father in the defence of their people. While he had kin to look after him, he spent most of his time at Rhosgobel under the care of Radagast and became the Sparrow, gifted with the ability to talk to birds. Enchanted by the tales and songs of his people, Sparrow finds himself following, more and more, the teachings of Radagast. Among the many lessons, Radagast taught Sparrow people not only needed a strong- arm to safeguard them, they also needed protection from the physical ailments and blights leftover by the Necromancer to haunt the inhabitants of Mirkwood. Now Sparrow's tutelage under Radagast was more than just songs, history and healing. He's one of Radagast's sparrows, although of the two-legged and upright variety most certainly bound to the earth. Now Sparrow is still a young man of twenty or so; and, despite Radagast's wonderful tutelage, he hungers for a bit of the heroic.

Calára Airalassë

Red-Haired Elf

Calára Airalassë, known as Lára Redleaf, was a a distant descendant of Fingolfin and thus has a rightful claim to Ringil. Her story is an exploration of the hope that appears even in the darkest moments, that any wound may be healed in time. descends from Írimë of the House Finwë. Írimë, it is said, took to exploring the Helcaraxë, finding in glittering ice both danger and beauty. When she returned to warmer lands she wandered, finding many scattered bands of her people and immersing herself in their cultures. It was in this way that she met Díriel, son of Amras, far removed, and they fell in love. Their union was the start of healing rifts opened between the Elven peoples long ago, when Elf turned upon Elf in the Kinslaying, beginning the mending of House Finwë. They had a daughter named Yávindë, who remained in Middle-Earth even after Írimë and Díriel returned to Aman following the War of Wrath. In Yávindë bloomed the fire of Nerdanel, it seemed, for she was given to adventure, driven by a thirst for knowledge. Yávindë pursued arts most commonly practiced by men, and she was especially skilled in the use of swords. Yávindë had a daughter of her own named Alyára, who was soft and delicate in every opposite way to Yávindë. Alyára was a songstress with few equals, and in her music would blossom visions of past glories, triumphs, tragedies, and echoed most keenly the Music of the Ainur. It is said of the two that they were night and day, summer and autumn, fire and soothing water.

Stories sung and spoken in the halls of Rivendell tell of a fateful encounter between a band of Elves and several terrible Trolls. Yávindë drew her blade and would have struck down the Trolls, but Alyára was first to act. She broke into a song so bittersweet and pure that even the Trolls wept and none in either group could shed blood that night. It is said that those Trolls never again harmed a traveller, and even that Alyára would sometimes visit them when traveling to share stories. Both women travelled between Rivendell, Mirkwood, and Lothlórien, though Alyára, like her mother, preferred to spend her days in Lórien. Alyára herself had a daughter named Calára (Írimë's great-great-granddaughter), in whom was reborn the adventurous spirit and insatiable curiosity of Nerdanel and Yávindë, but also the kind heart and thoughtful ways of Alyára. Her hair is red as the eaves of Autumn. In her youth she took her name from ancient Quenya and kept it ever after; elders still scarred by the Kinslaying might have bristled, but to many, it was simply an oddity. Unknown to Lára, however, it was a sign of things to come. Destiny calls even those too distant to hear its words, and her role in Middle-Earth is to be a healer of old wounds. The scarred house of Finwë, torn by the tragic acts of Fëanor, must be mended again. Part of her destiny is in finding Ringil and taking it up, redeeming the legacy of the Noldor and of Fingolfin himself.

Curulon son of Curunar

Curunar, son of Curunar, was one of the Dúnedain that lived in the land between the rivers Bruinen and Mitheithel, known as the Angle.

Biography

Jerome Flynn lotr

Born in T.A. 2894, he grew up to become Ramger of the North and inherit the duty of his father. As a boy, Curulon learned the skills of woodcraft and tracking from his father, and trained in the way of the sword and bow. As he came into his own, he became known for his keen sight and skill in battle. Curulon saw the reign of three Chieftains of the Dúnedain. First, Argonui served as Chieftain and it was during his reign in T.A. 2911 that the Fell Winter began. Curulon joined the Rangers and the wizard Gandalf in gathering food to provide the Hobbits of the Shire, saving them from starvation. Argonui’s death came in T.A. 2912 and his son, Arador, became Chieftain. It was during his reign that Curulon was sent to join the Rangers guarding Sarn Ford, on the river Baranduin at the far southern borders of the Shire. Arathorn II became Chieftain in T.A. 2930 after his father’s death at the hands of Hill-trolls.

Arathorn’s rule was short, as he was killed by orcs in T.A. 2933. His son, Aragorn II, became Chieftain then, and as was tradition he was sent to Rivendell, his name hidden from the Enemy and Curulon remained at Sarn Ford until T.A. 2941, when he was tasked by Halbaron, leader of the Rangers in Aragorn’s absence, with tracking the Company of Thorin Oakenshield as they journeyed to the Lonely Mountain. Curulon came to the gates of the Elvenking’s Halls shortly after Thorin’s Company, having learned of their road from Beorn the skin-changer, who had received him in his home. Thranduil welcomed Curulon to his halls, and offered him food and shelter. It was here that he met and befriended Nidhiel, a skilled Elven archer and hunter. Sensing the Shadow that fell over the Greenwood, Curulon sent word to Halbaron of his findings and took to traveling the southern road through Mirkwood. He came upon a nest of spiders, and soon a pack of orcs moving towards the Hill of Sorcery.

In November of T.A. 2941, Curulon spotted the host of orcs of the Misty Mountains and Grey Mountains moving through the forest, and he began to follow them. His skill of woodcraft kept him from their sight, and soon he guessed their destination. Curulon joined with the united armies of Men, Elves, and Dwarves and fought in the Battle of Five Armies, his blade felling many orcs and wargs. Curulon joined Thorin and his Company in their charge, alongside the many Men, Elves, and Dwarves, his friend Nidhiel among them. Despite the many losses on all sides, Curulon survived to see the Great Eagles, led by Gwaihir the Windlord, and Beorn the Skin-changer arrive and turn the tide of battle. Victory was secured by the Free Peoples, and Curulon joined Nidhiel in one of the many hunting parties that went in pursuit of the fleeing orcs.

After the battle and the crowning of Dain Ironfoot as King under the Mountain, Curulon knew that the Shadow still lingered in the North and orcs still dwelled deep in the mountains, and that his skills could prove valuable to the Free Peoples. Deciding to remain in Wilderland, Curulon took refuge amongst the Woodmen of Mirkwood, taking the name Hafgrim son of Hord, a hunter descended from the survivors of Dale when it was razed by Smaug.

The Woodmen came to know him and soon they called him Hafgrim the Watcher, or simply The Watcher, for few amongst them could match his keen sight. Curulon soon befriended the Woodmen’s patron, Radagast the Brown, and he revealed his true self to the Brown Wizard, though it was unlikely he had truly been hidden from the eyes of a Wizard. The Elves of Mirkwood, too, knew of his true identity and Curulon spent many days hunting orcs and spiders with Nidhiel. For many years, he has travelled beneath the trees of Mirkwood and along the shores of the Anduin, tracking the movements of orcs, spiders, and other foul things. He has made his home in Rhosgobel, dwelling amongst the Brown Wizard and the Woodmen there, though he spends much of his days in the wilds of Wilderland.

Alette of the Buhr

Alette was a fair-skinned, fire-crowned, emerald-eyed Beorning wanderer who was one of the People of the Buhr of Maethel, a town that lies at the confluence of the River Rushdown and the River Anduin, and had as its origin a trading-town and outpost of the Men of Gondor, who in the days of the Kings would come north on their barges to trade for the bounty of river and forest. Those days are long-past, and now the folk of the Buhr live in wooden huts and long halls below the crumbling stone towers and villas that the Men of the South raised, and the Éotheod maintained, but that none know now the secret of their making. Her father was Rook the Hunter, who would range up and down the river and forests and even into the marshes, and bring forth game. The hides and food obtained thus served to make comfortable himself and his daughter, and they were content. They might have lived there all their days, and Rook had grand-children to dandle on his knee as his hair turned white. When summer came to Buhr Maethel, Alette rethatched the roof, and after much consideration, slaughtered one of the billy goats.

Now there was no word of her father, not even from the night-walkers and skin- goers, who would look at her with their bear- eyes and shake their shaggy heads at her. By Autumn, Alette harvested her garden, carrots and cabbages and roots of all sorts to see her through the winter. And she went down to the river with the other women, with nets and salt, before it became too cold to work the waters. On the third cast of her net, among the good swift wriggling trout, there was one of her father's three short spears, lodged amongst broken tines of a set of antlers. Alette laid the spear aside, and finished gutting and salting the fish, before wrapping it in a soft cloth and going back up the hill. She would need the fish for the long and lonely winter. When spring came, Alette set out with her best cloak and her grandsires long-spear, which her father had rarely touched but was all now she had left to arm herself with. It had a good steel head, dwarf-make, and would suffice. She came after some time to the home of Amfossa the Trapper. Once spring turned to summer, Alette was laying beneath a willow tree, debating the various merits of the Carrock against the Old Ford, when a blue-banded, sharp-billed bird alighted above her.

Fall came, and Alette returned to Buhr Maethel, wiser but no less lonely. Though she was offered a goodly price for it, two fine ewes and a honey-hive of bees, she spent the months of snow and ice curing and sewing the last of her father's leather into a fine corslet made for a strong young women who perhaps had more determination than sense. In the spring, she meant to set out again, and her story might have gone much differently if not for a chance-meeting with Hwalda the Hunter. This was the Year of the Battle of the Five Armies. Though it brought peace and plenty to Wilderland and the Dale-lands and even to Mirkwood, it was considered something of an inconvenience to the Woodmen who had shepherded their wagons and pack-horses the long and weary leagues north of the forest, only to discover that there was no now Lake-town at which to exchange the bounty of the forest for leather and wine and other fine things, merely a great horde of Dwarves and Elves and Men, and an even greater horde of dead Orcs upon the field.

But there was a third Hoard as well, a Dragon-Hoard, and that meant gold. As she sat upon a stone on the edge of the field, watching the murders and clamours and unkindnesses feast on orc-flesh, the great Chief of her people, Beorn the Skin- Changer, settled down next to her. Alette considered this for some minutes, and then opened her mouth to speak and he held out his hand. In it was another of her father's three short spears, the wood stained dark and black with blood. Beorn had torn it from the stomach of a warg during the battle. Alette accepted it with something approaching gratitude, and the Great Bear left her to her thoughts amongst the birds of ill-omen. After some time, Alette rose up, shook the dust from her boots, and aimed herself towards the camp of Bard the Bowman and his host. Her purse was full, as was her heart, but it had occurred to her she might be at this for some time.

Regnald the Fox

Sean Harris lotr

Regnald, known as the Fox, was one of the Wood Folk that lived in Mirkwood during the Third Age. Born and raised in a hamlet on the Dusky River called Woodman's Ford, Regnald was barely three summers old when the Wizard Radagast brought a foundling girl name Dagmar to his mother, who was currently nursing his newborn baby brother Alwis. Despite their initial misgivings, his parents accepted Radagast's word that the child had no evil in her and agreed to raise the girl as their own. She was, according to the old wizard, a special child and perhaps destined for great things.

As the three grew up together, they played with the other children at the pool by the little waterfall, just south of the village, and it was here that Regnald first noticed her affinity with the water and gave her the pet name of 'little otter'. These days, she is known among their people as 'the Foundling'. Regnald refuses to use the term and continues to address her as 'little otter'. He regards her as his blood kin, even if she is not and he is prepared to fight anyone who suggests otherwise. As a child, his mother would often send him into the woods between the hamlet and, nearby, Rhosgobel.

Never once did Regnald fail in his duty to his family, even if it took him three days. He was a determined boy and would not return empty handed. His parents, Acbold and Heledwis, grew used to his going off for days on end. They recognised his love for the woods and soon gave up on forbidding him to cross the river into the wilder parts of the forest. Now grown up and the name suits well with his russet brown hair and beard as well as his guile, he never failed in his duty as a boy and he has sworn that he will never fail in his duty as a man to protect his people. He became a warrior of some skill, but is wise enough to realise that a dead hero is no hero at all.

He firmly believes that the Free Folk of the Wilderland must unite to have any chance of survival. The shadow over Mirkwood has rescinded but only fools believe that it is anything more than a breathing space. He has travelled to Dale to seek the patronage of King Bard. So far he has failed to gain an audience. The King is ever surrounded by an army of scribes and counsellors who have constantly barred his way. He is currently at Lake-town, awaiting the opportunity which will prove his mettle and draw the King's attention. He has been accompanied by Dagmar(much to his consternation). He knows that he should not worry about her unduly. She is a match for any young male warrior and he rarely underestimates her capabilities but he is her older brother and, sometimes, he just cannot help it.

Although competent with her spear, she prefers to solve problems in more subtle ways. Although still young she already thinks like an older and wiser leader, and masks her own intentions as effectively as she discerns those of others. Why she is interested in Adventures is her own business, but surely it must be for the benefit of her own folk. In the meantime if her goals coincide with those of strangers she is happy to be allies for now, although even if she tells herself that doing so is only a means to end her sense of loyalty may, over time, become a more important reason.

Medelon of Stanshelf

Medelon was a Dunlending of Dunland. Born in Stanshelf, he belonged to the Wulfings, the mixed- Dunlending folk of Stanshelf. A faction within the clan value their rohir blood above that of the Dunlendings and struggle to be considered one with the Horse-lords. Up to now, the King in the Golden Hall has not answered to their pleas for recognition. Medelon tries to imitate as much as possible those Rohirrim he sometimes meets in the Gap of Rohan, where he travels as much as possible, considering himself an errand knight that protects the borders of his realm. His chainmail and shield have the white horse painted on them, and Mendelon hunts orcs and even rogue Dunlendings that threaten the western borders of the Riddermark. But even after his years of unasked service to Rohan, the Horse-lords still consider him an untrusty Dunlending. However, it was Saruman the Wise, counsellor and friend of King Thengel, who approached Mendelon. The old sage told him that by lending a hand in the Wizard's plans, and proving his value, he would gain a friend who could speak on behalf of him and the folk of Stanshelf in the Riddermark King’s Court. Mendelon trusts the words of Saruman, and sees the logic in them. After all this time of ungrateful service to the Mark, Mendelon subconsciously begins to hold a grudge against the aloof Horse-lords he is not aware of.

Lodin the Half-Blind

Lodin the Half-Blind was a musician that can barely keep himself feed and sheltered. He spends most of his days wandering along the quays of the Merchant’s Quarter or playing outside the inns of Bridge Street. He knows tales of ancient heroes and lost treasures, and readily uses them to try and earn his keep. One of his tales speaks of a Dwarven expedition to clear the Old Forest Road that failed to return from Mirkwood. It is said that ancient arms and armour, exemplars of the Dwarven craft from before the coming of Smaug, were lost with them.
