Whilst browsing the “One Wiki to Rule them All” (that’s dedicated to Tolkien clearly)

I discovered 3 fan made films, Born of Hope, The Hunt for Gollum & Halifirien.

Born of Hope is about Aragorn’s parents and how they came to know each other, marry and have Aragorn, including defending their town from orcs.

The Hunt for Gollum is basically about Aragorn and Gandalf trying to find Gollum and also tells how Gollum came to be in possession of the ring.

Halifirien is about a young boy called Eradur who must light his town (Halifirien) beacon as it is the last light in Gondor’s call to Rohan for aid and his decision on either keeping his sworn duty of protecting the beacon or helping his friends in battle.

Links to all 3 fan-made films are there c:

this post is great, but it will never match 

What is that?“ cried Pippin suddenly, clutching at Gandalf’s cloak. "Look! Fire, red fire! Are there dragons in this land? Look, there is another!”

For answer Gandalf cried aloud to his horse. “On, Shadowfax! We must hasten. Time is short. See! The beacons of Gondor are alight, calling for aid. War is kindled. See, there is the fire on Amon Dîn, and flame on Eilenach; and there they go speeding west: Nardol, Erelas, Min-Rimmon, Calenhad, and the Halifirien on the borders of Rohan.”

“See, there is the fire on Amon Dîn, and flame on Eilenach” especially; it’s a masterpiece of composition. Say it aloud. It’s not that the whole novel was meant to be read aloud - but some parts of it were. Feel the flash and the urgency here.

 And the names! the names, that even if you don’t really know the Histories of Middle Earth are redolent with age and history - this passage gives you all the space you need, to see the flames set against the darkness, sparking and crackling their warning from Gondor to Rohan. 


Western Rohan Scenery Porn and Tolkienite Notes, Part 2

The casual stroll from 85 to 95 continues! In this installment I gained a few levels and visited some new places, but I also played around with cosmetics because dat coif.


EDIT: Someone asked me a while back if we get the pretty flowers with every single level up at high levels, and the answer is yes, as you can see.
