O Pilgrim Grey!

In Reply To
Great update. We learn more from him than from anywhere else! Bless you man! Cool

Dear Ian is keeping in character, for it was ever the mission of the Grey Wanderer to bring tidings of rekindled hope to dwellers of distant lands:
“befriending all in time of need. Warm and eager was his spririt... Merry he could be, and kindly to the young and simple, and yet quick at times to sharp speech and the rebuking of folly; but he was not proud, and sought neither power nor praise, and thus far and wide he was beloved among all those that were not themselves proud.”
As it is in verse recounted:

Wilt thou learn the lore        that was long secret
of the Five that came        from a far country?
Only one returned.        Others never again
under Men’s dominion        and the Doom cometh.
How has thou heard it:        the hidden counsel
of the Lord of the West        in the land of Aman?

or, in a more modern style:

From Wilderland to Western shore
from northern waste to southern hill,
through dragon-lair and hidden door
and darkling woods he walked at will.

With Dwarf and Hobbit, Elves and Men,
with mortal and immortal folk,
with bird on bough and beast in den,
in their own secret tongues he spoke.

I just love an actor who lives his part. :)

…all eyes looked upon the ring; for he held it now aloft, and the green jewels gleamed there that the Noldor had devised in Valinor. For this ring was like to twin serpents, whose eyes were emeralds, and their heads met beneath a crown of golden flowers, that the one upheld and the other devoured; that was the badge of Finarfin and his house.
The Silmarillion, pp 150-151
while Felagund laughs beneath the trees
in Valinor and comes no more
to this grey world of tears and war.
The Lays of Beleriand, p 311
