Minas Tirith

Post  Yrobryn on Tue Jun 09, 2009 12:40 pm

Minas Tirith, originally named Minas Anor, became the heavily fortified capital of Gondor in the second half of the Third Age. It was originally built to guard the former capital of Gondor, Osgiliath, from attack from the west, but became the capital when Osgiliath fell into ruin following the Kin-Strife and the Great Plague. It is often referred to as the White City and the City of Kings. The Rohirrim sometimes translated this into their own language as "the Mundburg".



Minas Tirith was surrounded by the Rammas Echor, a large ringwall encircling the Pelennor Fields. This wall was built by Ecthelion II but proved no match for the Orc legions of Mordor. The city itself lies on a hill beneath Mount Mindolluin. The city is divided into seven one-hundred-foot high levels, each surrounded by white walls. The gates connecting the levels do not lay behind one another in a line, but face in different directions. A spur of rock, whose summit is level with the city's uppermost tier, juts out from the front of the city in an easterly direction, dividing all but the first level into two. Finally, within the seventh wall, is the Citadel with its White Tree of Gondor in the Court of the Fountainandthe White Tower, where the surviving Seeing Stones of Anor kept—three hundred feet high, so that its apex is one thousand feet above the plain gleaming when the light shone on it. Upon the saddle between the city and Mindolluin are the Houses of the Dead—tombs of the Kings of Gondor and their Stewards. The main walls of Minas Tirith were of great height and marvellous thickness, made from a material alike to that of the tower of Orthanc: hard, dark, smooth, unbreakable and unconquerable by steel or fire.

Gates

Post  Yrobryn on Sun Jun 14, 2009 7:34 am

All of a sudden, an horse could be seen comming from Ithilien's direction.
A few minutes later the horse was at the Gates of Minas Tirith, on top of the horse could be noticed a man.


Open the Gates! there is a man on the Horse a Guard shouted not recognising that the man was one of the scouts that left 2 days before with 8 other

As the Gates open some guards pull the horse inside, taking the man out of it

The Dark Tower has risen again! said the man several times with pain in his voice

People around started talking to each other, some begun to freak out, a guard tried to calm down the citizens just before ordering a soldier to transmit the news to Yrobryn and the others Captains of Minas Tirith.

Daëron was taking a walk. When he passed by the gates he heard the scout talking to the guards and he heard what he said.

This can't be happening, Oh no, what i sensed was real! - said Daëron very concerned - What will we do? What will happen to middle earth? Will the Dark forces rise once more?

The people applaude, scream, cry, shout and weep, for Yrobryn, for the dead...

Yrobryn turns to Finwe once more

You can rest here before returning to your afairs, you can stay in the guesthouse if you wish, make yourself at home my friend, i must rest now for a while, have a good night.

Yrobryn turns and walks to his home, as he arrives he goes to his own forge in the backyard, and resumes his work. He was working on a bow, a unique bow made of a piece of wood from the white tree of kings that stands in the last level of Minas Tirith, in the courtyard.
Without finishing it he goes to bed and rests for this night, this bow would have to take much more time to finish

Daëron's house

Post  Daëron on Wed Jun 24, 2009 4:22 pm

Daëron was sleeping and having a strange dream, where he saw many orcs, elves and man in a battlefield, there were few stading, there were orcs, some trolls, Yrobryn, Finwe and Daëron. Daëron suddenly woke up and leaned forward.

What was that, was it some kind of vision? Does it mean anything? Daëron, at the end of his sentence, laid down again and tried to sleep
