The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 210 - Stratagems

7th May 2015 (17:07)

And we're back!

In case it's not obvious, the labels on the map are C = Círdan, T&M = Thingol and Melian, D = Denethor.

When Beleg says "The orcs aren't very observant" you have to remember he's saying this from the perspective of a First Age elf , not a mere mortal...


Part 210: Stratagems



Next time: Part 211: Dulce et decorum est

Chibis by the now-dead website formerly known as tektek.org
Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series.
Questions and comments welcome!

"Melian, you're a Maia... don't you have access to 9th level spells and stuff? I was thinking maybe some kind of magical... bustier, or bodice? Something like that?"

I temporarily freaked out here because I was thinking "Wait, I didn't post that one yet!"

Part 214 (I'm a little ahead of myself in making these at present) will have almost that exact dialogue: "Melian, you're a Maia." (But without the D&D references, of course; he then says "Can't you do something?)

"I can throw my halo like a chakram. Would that help?"

I think that description suits her daughter better - or it will do in time...
