Stars and Holly

2105 0657 4909 1235 Ost-in-Edhil (S.A. 750 – 1697) was the capital city of Eregion, a region populated by Noldor and Sindar elves in Eriador. It lay where the rivers Sirannon and Glanduin met. First ruled by Galadriel and Celeborn, after they moved to Lorien the rule passed to Celebrimbor, grandson of Feanor. In time the Gwaith-i-Mírdain, a brotherhood of Elven craftsmen, was founded by him. In the year 1200 S.A. a mysterious craftsman named Annatar came to the city, offering his considerable talents. For 400 years the Jewelsmiths learned from him and together forged many Rings of Power. Annatar was, in truth, Sauron, who later returned to Mordor to forge the One Ring, thus the elves realized their foolish mistake of giving him trust. In 1695 the Dark Lord returned, laying waste in the region, as the recount of the War of Elves and Sauron stated. In 1697 Celebrimbor was slain and Ost-in-Edhil completely destroyed. What little was left, was a marred landscape, the only light that of the sun in the day and the stars shining at night, like a curtain over the ruin. Hollies still grew, but nobody lived there anymore. Buildings crumbled, all was silent, and the mythical forges silent…0000…this elf lady is a brave explorer. There is no dread to fear when the canopy above her head is so luminous and beautiful. Foes are nowhere to be seen as she proceeds through the innermost ruins of the elven city… but the Forges are lit. How could this be? Nobody is there, but the fires roar. Who lit them? A memory of the past, or a remnant in the present?454416-12 I love love love this armour set. In natural colours it is perfect for a silvan themed outfit, but in black, it is also suitable for a more “bold” theme, in my opinion. I actually like it more dyed black than any other colour, and I thought it fitting for the setting in the screens. I am slowly but surely collecting flowers for the new armour in North Ithilien, so I will hopefully be able to put some outfits together with the new pieces. In the meantime, vintage never goes out of fashion 😛
