Message 2562 : Protecting the Tower Hills (Antti)
Written on Mon Apr 22 14:49:26 2019
The Bree-folk called them Rangers, and knew nothing of their origin. They were
taller and darker than the Men of Bree and were believed to have strange
powers of sight and hearing, and to understand the languages of beasts and
birds. They roamed at will southwards, and eastwards even as far as the Misty
Mountains; but they were now few and rarely seen.
- J.R.R. Tolkien: the Fellowship of the Ring
Some of the hardened rangers have left the Bree area and moved to the Tower Hills.
Message 2560 : The Tower Hills and Elostirion (Rogon)
Written on Mon Apr 22 14:48:15 2019
The Tower Hills, or 'Emyn Beraid' in Sindarin, are a series of steep hills
located between the Grey Havens and the Shire. High upon the hills stand
three tall Elven towers, the highest of which is called Elostirion, which
holds the last PalantÝr free of Sauron's grasp.
The Tower Hills once marked the border between the Elven realm Lindon, and the
kingdom of Arnor. Today, much of it is wilderness, although one will find
remnants of the men of Arnor here still, small farming villages, herders, and
hunters. One such small village is the Black Hill Village, located at the very
northern border of the Tower Hills.
Recently there has been an influx of young adventurers into the area, as it is
located between the realms of Men, Dwarves, Elves, and Hobbits. Many of these
seem to stray from the Old East Road in their search of adventure, and find
themselves in Black Hill Village. The villagers seem to take the new arrivals
in stride as long as they behave appropriately and don't cause trouble.
The Tower Hills is a new superzone in MUME which offers inexperienced
adventurers of the Free Peoples a large number of quests, although
achievement hunters of any level may want to visit the area!
A big thank you to all the volunteers that made the Tower Hills a reality.
Related news: After the recent incident which caused the doors of Elostirion to
malfunction, they have now been repaired and pilgrims are once again allowed
access to the tower. The Elven Commander of the tower says that he will no
longer open the doors for people who insist of STANDING outside knocking on the
doors, or calling for them to be OPENED.
