The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 143 - Done his time

21st July 2014 (19:22)

Melkor's is an evil laugh. But the Valar (except Ulmo) (and possibly Námo) don't realise that.

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 142 - Judgement Day

18th July 2014 (11:58)

I made a few last-minute changes to this one, which is why it's a day late.

Note that Melkor is being absolutely honest in what he says!

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 141 - Parole hearing

14th July 2014 (18:02)

The Máhanaxar, where the Valar hold council, is just outside Valmar next to the mound where the Two Trees are, so it's logical Melkor would be led past them as he's taken to judgement.

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 140 - Time's up

10th July 2014 (23:42)

Time to reintroduce a character we last saw way back in #67 - and the clothes he puts on we haven't seen since #7.

Nothing can possibly go wrong with this.

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 139 - Clan Finwë

7th July 2014 (18:09)

Lots more characters for you all to have to remember! \o/ Also lots of cute baby Elves.

I've designed Fingolfin's and Finarfin's children to be wearing their House shield on their chests (Except Galadriel who has it on her sash at her waist). Other distinguishing features are that Turgon and Aredhel both wear white, Finrod Felagund wears a miner's helmet, and (spoilers) you probably don't have to memorise what Argon looks like. :)

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 137 - Seven brothers

30th June 2014 (18:03)

At least they don't have seven brides. That would double the number of new characters you have to keep track of!

Note that I've designed Fëanor's sons so they all have a silver 8-pointed star embroidered on the front of their shirt; that way you can tell their family allegiance even if you can't always remember which one is which.

As a reminder: at this point in history Elves have a father-name and a mother-name, given by the respective parent. Later on in the story (and as such an anachronism at this point) they also have a translation or adaptation of their name into Sindarin. Thus Curufinwë Fëanáro (fathername, mothername) becomes Fëanor in Sindarin; Nelyafinwë Maitimo becomes Maedhros in Sindarin.

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 136 - The family way

26th June 2014 (17:21)

In an attempt to make the conversation easier to follow here I've colour-coded the speakers - Fëanor is blue, Nerdanel red, Mahtan black.
Maedhros, though technically present in the cartoon as well (kind of), doesn't have a speaking part.

Hyarmentir ('Southern Peak') is the second-tallest mountain in the world, in the far south of Valinor.
