TIME - October 12 [In reply to] Can't Post

Today in Middle-earth.

October 12, 2941 (S.R. 1341)
1. They leave the river and ride to the Lonely Mountain.
(from Karen Wynn Fonstad, The Atlas of Middle-earth-no text)
..."The next day they set out again. Balin and Bilbo rode behind, each leading another pony heavily laden beside him; the others were... ...picking out a slow road, for there were no paths. They made north-west, slanting away from the River Running, and drawing ever nearer... ...to a great spur of the Mountain that was flung out southwards towards them.
...It was a weary journey, and a quiet and stealthy one. There was no laughter or song or sound of harps... ...the singing of old songs by the lake died away to a plodding gloom. They knew that they were drawing near to the end of their journey, and that it might be a very horrible end. The land about them grew bleak and barren, though once, as Thorin told them, it had been green and fair. There was little grass, and before long there was neither bush nor tree, and only broken and blackened stumps to speak of one long vanished. They were come at the waning of the year."

October 12, 3018 (S.R. 1418)
1. Strider and the hobbits make their way to Rivendell.
(not from the appendices)
..."I am afraid we must go back to the Road here for a while,' said Strider. 'We have now come to the River Hoarwell... ...It flows down out of the Ettenmoors, the troll-fells north of Rivendell, and joins the Loudwater away in the South. Some call it the Greyflood after that. It is a great water before it finds the Sea. There is no way over it below its sources in the Ettenmoors, except by the Last Bridge on which the Road crosses.'
...'What is that other river we can see far away there?' asked Merry.
...'That is Loudwater, the Bruinen of Rivendell... ...The Road runs along the edge of the hills for many miles from the Bridge to the Ford of Bruinen. But I have not yet thought how we shall cross the water. One river at a time! We shall be fortunate indeed if we do not find the Last Bridge held against us.'"

2. Glorfindel pursues three of the Black Riders then continues his search for the Company.
(not from the appendices-no text)
...Glorfindel raced behind the specters. Asfaloth's speed could easily have overtaken the enemy as they fled before the force they felt pursuing them, but the Elf sensed the urgency to return to his search for the Company. He felt the distressing call to go back; that time was running out. Asfaloth tossed his head and whinnied in protest as Glorfindel eased back and turned aside, loathe to break from the chase. Slowly he made his way along the road, searching the ground for a sign of Aragorn and his charge.

3. Gandalf makes his way to Rivendell.
(not from the appendices-no text)
...It was six days since the Black Riders broke off their pursuit of the Wizard. Gandalf made straight for Rivendell.

October 12, 3019 (S.R. 1419)
1. The remaining Fellowship moves on.
(not from the appendices-no text)
...Gandalf and the hobbits make their way to Bree after passing Weathertop. King Éomer and King Elessar guide their respective cities and their inhabitants through the aftermath of the War. Legolas and Gimli travel the lands after visiting Fangorn Forest. Saruman is busy remodelling the Shire.


I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
