"i guess its time we move opn again. There's the gates," he said pointing to a dimly lit outline to the far north of the hall.
"we should move on quickly so that we may reach azanulbizar before dusk"
"anyone care to help me carry turion"
"how long wil it take us to reach lorien," the dwarf asked as they moved towards the gate.
I'm sorry for your loss Corgon. But we have to do this cermony swift.
Even if we don't know if Mealwen is still alive I for once will go in search for her. This will be my quest now.
I wonder if we will part here, or if anyone will join me?
Turning to rafael he said:
"But where shall we look for her?" the dwarf said pointing to the wide land from their position in front of the east gate of moria.
Easy, my true friend Thorin! We'll let Turion go and then we take time to a Council. We are in a hurry, but I like us to know the wheres , the whys and we aught to ponder a bit how to to things.
hold my friends I i will ask my dragon sprit as to what path to take and she will have the final say."
*gets down from the saddle and kneels on the grond and closes his eyes and stays as such for sevrel long minutes then rises and gets back on his horse.
it is desided " he says I ride with you let us be gone from this uneartly place."
"let us find a peacefull place to lay turion"
The story so far as i remember it goes like this
our small party left from eriador and travelled throught moria so they could reach mirkwood in a attempt to spy on dol-guldur... but in moria we encountered fionwe and turion who sadly died but not before telling us that her sister and he had been captured...... and now we stand outside of moria...
Welcome Etharion. So you are also an elf from Beleriand, I see you have a mighty bow and a full quiver. We will very much welcome your head and your hands. In our quest for Turion's sister Mealwen, we may need every warrior who are willing to help us.
That much said, Etharion, I am proud to say that we all have proved our worth with weapon.
Corgon, do you know if it is possible to get more steeds anywhere?
What I do know is that I am glad we are sharing side!
Thorin, is there any possibility that you could find another dwarf or two to join in? That axe-swinging moves of you are amazing!
I understand Thorin, that if we can come back later with an army of dwarfs and elves and free Moria for goblin, yrch and cavetrolls, there are dwarfs willing to bring Moria back in shape.
Will you please use your magic to call us horses, Corgon. Lets hurry for Lorien!
he mumbled the words that rafael and thorin had heard in moria and suddenly corgon quiver was full.
"there you go" arath said pleased that he had once again succesfully cast a spell.
turning then to rafael
"three oaks shall do" he said.
"do you wish to join me in this ceremony rafael?" arath asked turning to the others.
"if it would be possible could you stand a little while over there for this ceremony i am about to perform is secret know only to a few who survived the fall of a city of old" arath said.
"as for a steed i need one not" arath said slightly spreading his dark wings.
I need a mount, but I don't quite now about Etharion and Thorin?
"the deed is done turion has departed and his remains are safe" he said.
"now then are we off?" he asked.
I study the letters ingraved in the blade Turion left me :ADERTHAD; "REUNION" it sure has a story this blade!!
She is lost somewhere in the Misty Mountains, but where?
Corgon, do you have any bits in this puzzle??
His friends began looking at him funny, so he explained, "I am of pure Numenorean blood, as it was before the arrival of the shadow. So I possess all the graces and blessings in their fullest, that they once possessed. I shall far outlive you, Thorin, unless death overcome or prophecy fulfill. This ring only aids me in controlling my ability of true sight, it does not grant it to me." As he spoke, a great white stallion came galloping up to them...
"as for the orcs of the mountains. do they keep her in moria or their other dwelling... what is it called for i do not know." he said.
"o for my adventures now the sorrow finally catches up whit me i shall go to the grey havens!" he said laudly.
Arath made his mind in moria the long dark had reminded him of the horrors of the iron prison that was long ago. Also he felt great sorrow for burying turion. He had done so many times. Too many. He felt tired to all that was middle-earth and longed to see sea and the white shores of aman.
"No, they keep her in the northern Misty Mountains, near the dreaded Angmar," he said, thinking of his own lady, who had been in similar straights. "Her situation is much like that Elrond's wife was in, only they do not poison her for fear of her dying. They will not allow her to be taken from them, rather would they kill her first, but it is not hopeless. We can not take her from them by open force, they'd threaten her life, but we can do it by stealth."
Fionwë paused, and looked at them, "I can not tell you anymore right now. Another time I can look further into their plans and designs, when we are closer, this distance is wearing me out. And yes, even though we met by sheer chance as it would seem, I will still go with you in this quest. I am not one to abandon those in need of help, even less so when help is needed most, nor abandon my friends. My own quest can wait, especially since this involves someone from the Grey Havens; I would be churlish to leave this poor lady in the hands of the orcs."
"your gift exceeds my own for i too can look in to the minds of others but a distance like this...." he said.
"so be it we ride to angmar!" arath yelled raising his sword.
"shall we ride to the redhorn pass straight or may we visit lorien?" arath asked.
This steed you've found me is a blessing.
But Thorin is scouting out our surroundings, we'll have to give him time to return.
"lead the way ill follow" arath said and jumped to the sky.
Can anyone of you soothsayers see him? Is something amiss?
We can't leave without showing him our route. And I do not know if we shall press on mounted with him on foot. I know that he don't ride well, but he can double with me!
If the four of you start I'll wait half day for Thorin. I can't spare more time than that, but he is part of our brotherhood, so I owe him that!
"we should wait for thorin or must we hurry?" he said.
I have laid out instructions to Thorin. I've told him that we will wait for him in Lorien a day or maybe two. He is told that our elven guard will know that we are waiting for him. They will safeguard him to us.
He has been out of reach so long that I am afraid that something's amiss. What really worries me, is that none of us has been able to mind-reach him. It is as something or someone are disturbing any communication we try to establish outside elven minds!
Lead on, we cant stay any longer! We ride on!
Rafael drew his blade and bow. He's gear are in perfect condition.
I'm ready for what may be! Lead us on, Fion!
" thank you my friend." corgon said and turned to flowin " I will return with my findings as soon as I can m'lord." and bows to him as well then turns and jogs up the trail a short ways the turns off the trail and dissapers into the woods. and all becomes silent from his steps.
Etharion was sitting on a fallen log on the edge of a small copse of trees, in the middle of the plains between the Misty Mountains and Mirkwood.
Looking over his map, he decided he'd camp here for the night, and wait out this storm that was brewing overhead. So after lowering his equipment to the ground he gathered some wood and started a fire, preparing to make supper.
"go on he said. Dont wait for me. I`ve found something interesting. Expect me when you see me"
With that he ran back in the direction he came from.
" orc's about a two miles up the rode at least 50 and they travel with cave troles and worse a drake." we must deside our actions quickly I for one say we fight." he says stagering to his horse and draws his sword.
He holds Corgon shoulders and while he makes the prayers, the wound starts to inflate, the bleeding has stopped.
What do you say Fion? Wouldnt it be nice if we find a nice place to ambush this party. I do not like that dragon though.
Is it it possible to lure those trolls off the track and get rid of them, without getting the dragon's attention?
A dark column of it was raising towards the south. He decided to investigate this more closely..
So he started packing his camp up with haste. A few minutes later, he had everything in his backpack, and was carefully strolling through the tall grass towards the source of the smoke..
