News From Abroad

“A fair tree grows in Armenelos,” said his visitors. “It flowers in the evening. They say Yavanna grew the first of its kind in the likeness of Telperion, the Tree Bauglir destroyed. Galathilion, that one was called, and from Galathilion came the White Tree of Tol Eressëa, which is named Celeborn.”

“‘Tree of Silver’,” said Celeborn, amused. “An inventive people, the Elves of Eressëa.”

Nimloth.

Her screams echoed in his ears again, slaughtered amid smoke and stone trees at Dior’s side.
