Thlim Echtel

Now marched these folk to a great playing of their flutes, and the crystal and silver of their array was most lovely to see amid the red light of the fires and the blackness of the ruins.“― J.R.R. Tolkien,  The Book of Lost Tales Part Two, The Fall of Gondolin Thlim Echtel or the House of the Fountain was one of the 12 noble houses of Gondolin, lead by the elf lord Ecthelion of the Fountain. They were said to find delight in silver and diamonds, and their swords were long and bright and pale. The People of the Fountain of the South, as they were also called, went into battle accompanied by the sweet music of their flutes.During the Fall of Gondolin in year F.A. 510, they were held in reserve by Turgon, who unleashed them after the Balrogs made a breach in the city walls. They made their entrance from the South part of the city and slew a great number of foes. As Balrogs and Dragons led an army who outnumbered them, the People of the Fountain began retreat towards the Square of the King. It is likely that the survivors of this House soon dissolved it after the death of Ecthelion at the Fountain of the King, since there is no mention of it afterwards. Third time remaking this. The previous one was all grey and moria silver was not a thing yet. While the old one was true to the silver, I never quite felt like it represented the house. Many people think it a mix of blue and silver and I go with that current too.
