The Tale of Years, Third Age up to 3017
Pages To Read:
-RK.AppB “These were the fading years of the Eldar” (~p.3) – “Gandalf visits Minas Tirith and reads the scroll of Isildur” (~p.9)
– List of literally everything that has happened since the end of the Second Age, when Sauron was first defeated. I could list them all here, but that seems a bit redundant…
Links to Other Content:
– Imprisoned, by LiigaKlavina. Way back on July 24 I described how Celebrían (Elrond’s wife) was captured, tortured, and eventually rescued mid-Third Age. It’s in the text again today; here’s a haunting picture of Celebrían in captivity.
– Mist Over Mirkwood, by Miruna-Lavinia. Great painting of Dol Guldur in Mirkwood by one of my favorite artists.
– Dol Guldur, by Angus McBride. Old painting of Gandalf, Saruman, Galadriel, and Co. going to drive the Necromancer from Dol Guldur. Remember this was before Saruman turned selfish and evil.
Notes: Obviously a huge amount of detail in the Tale of Years, but it’s good to at least skim it to get a sense of the huge time span that has passed since the beginning of the Third Age. Also good to bookmark this section for reference later. ~Tom
