New! The Kin-Strife of Gondor ~ The Reign of King Castamir by Hanasian, Elora

Rated R
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

Of all of Gondor's long history, no chapter is as tragic or as brutal as the Kin-Strife. The Kin Strife effectively started with the death of King Valacar in the year 1432 of the Third Age and ended some 16 years later. Castamir, claiming his pure Numenorean bloodline and a descendant of the Royal line, overthrew Eldacar, the rightful heir of the throne of Gondor, but who was of mixed Gondorian and Rhovanion blood.

This tale is but one of many, and tells of some of the people who got caught up in the dark and brutal civil war in Gondor. and,begins with Castamir claiming the crown of Gondor from the defeated King Eldacar.

~ ~ ~

This is a Gondorian tale co-written by me (Hanasian) and my wife (Elora).
Unless stated otherwise in the chapter notes, the Prologue and the odd-numbered chapters were written by Hanasian, and the even-numbered chapters were written by Elora. I would also like to thank my wife Elora for her editing and taking the rough edges from my writing.

Feature Forging for Protection and Defense by Larner

Rated PG13
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

He studied in Tirion in the forges of Mahtan and Lord Aule himself, but followed his chosen lord to Middle Earth to find his destiny.  Perhaps his most memorable achievements were the forging of a particular suit of armor, and his advice, supervision, and participation in the reforging of a famous blade created by a greater smith than he was himself.  Was it worthwhile?  Can he ever look to accept forgiveness for his part in the rebellion of the Noldor?

Inspired by the armor worn by Elendil and Aragorn in the PJ LOTR movies.  Beta by Fiondil and Soledad, with my profound thanks.
