An echo of days past

“I do not think the wood feels evil, whatever tales may say,’ said Legolas. ‘[…] I catch only the faintest echoes of dark places where the hearts of trees are black. There is no malice near us; but there is watchfulness and anger. […] Do you not feel the tenseness? It takes my breath.” Legolas, Book 2: The Two Towers, Lord of the Rings
30584175The Eaves of Fangorn is but a remnant of the once great Fangorn Forest. Treebeard the Ent, oldest Shepherd of the Trees, is the keeper of this wood which once stretched from one edge of Middle-earth to the other. Here true Ents can be found, among black hearted and malevolent Huorns, which live in the northernmost parts of the forest. However, there is no malice in the air like that of the Old Forest in Buckland, rather a tense feeling of curiosity and wariness. This elf explorer has ventured into the wood and stands in awe at the sight of the ancient trees, who murmur and sway their leaves even though no wind blows through the canopy, and if she listens closely, the echo of words can be heard all around her44102775I have been exploring the first regions of West Rohan, and the foresty landscape of Eastfold got me inspired to make a themed outfit. West Rohan is gorgeous, I especially like the town of Fenmarch, at night time is a sight to behold! Also, my scholar has gotten her hands on the Walnut Brown dye recipe, I will experiment with this new color soon, from what I have seen on other player’s outfits, the shade of brown is deep and warm, more than walnut it makes me think of chocolate, haha ๐Ÿ˜„
