I realise that this is the wrong section, but there didn't seem to be another more appropriate one. I have a question about the nature of first age elvish weapons and their glowing properties.
Please excuse my ignorance on the matter! Do elvish weapons only glow in the presence of orcs? or would they also glow in the presence of any of Morgoths creations?
I ask because it's relavent to my project here
, i'm looking into how i should portray the sword of Glorfindel.
