Very fair was her face, and her long hair was like a river of gold. Slender and tall she was in her white robe girt with silver; but strong she seemed and stern as steel, a daughter of kings. Thus Aragorn for the first time in the full light of day beheld Éowyn, Lady of Rohan, and thought her fair, fair and cool, like a morning of pale spring that is not yet come to womenhood.

‘Aged 28, but a timeless presence in the minds of those who had the honour of knowing this proud, handsome, and supremely intelligent being, mighty Uraeus has finally come to rest on the physical plane.

That night, you two went walking into the woods talking about everything for hours. 

“Danger Night”

Illustration and teaser for the penultimate chapter of my fanfic Over Earth and Under Earth. The chapter is mostly written. I hope to finish and edit it over the weekend. After that I’ll finish the next chapter of The Horse and his Doctor, and then it’s either back to OEaUE for its final chapter, or an update for Enigma.

The invention of the bow drastically changed the shape of not only warfare but the world. Introducing range to warfare and hunting the bow made for perhaps the most cutting edge peice of equipment in its time. Allowing archers of every culture to kill the enemy from a hundred or more paces brought both a safety and a lethality that had not previously existed on the battlefield.

In medieval europe the English longbow was the most lethal weapon on the battlefield. The Mongolian Short Bow was a hug factor in its conquest of the east, its horse archers being the best known to history. Even the Elves in LOTR showcase how deadly two bits of wood can be.
