Saruman appeared in the throne room. Melilraen tried to shoo him away with mocking him. It didn’t work.

“You sailed all the way out there?” The little girl stretched up on her tip toes to see over the wall, searching the horizon for the distant lands her father had returned from.
“Even further.  We sailed until Dol Amroth was just a speck on the horizon, and then we kept sailing.  Past mountains and old crumbling towers, and rivers that, had we followed them, would take us all the way to hidden valleys where elves live.”
Rose’s eyes widened.  “Elves?”  She turned her gaze from the ocean to her father, as he nodded sagely.  “What about dwarves?  Were there dwarves too?”
“I met some dwarves.”  Ercdryt struggled to suppress a grin as his daughter stared up at him in awe. 
“What were they like?”
“Short.  And… hairy.” 
When he left Dol Amroth, she was still a babe, quiet and sweet tempered.  The little girl he’d found playing in the streets, hardly distinguishable as a girl from the group of boys she tagged along with, had been a stranger to him.  If it weren’t for the grey doe eyes that met his now, the same eyes as her mother, he might not have known her.  
But she had grown up on tales of her father, and knew the man who rode up to her on the street, as if he’d been absent only days.  He’d taken her around the city, perched in front of him in the saddle, and she’d shown him all the spots where she liked to play.  Ercdryt had wondered at the change the years had brought in the girl, and she couldn’t help but remind him of his own youth, playing knights and corsairs and dreaming about distant lands.
“When I’m older, I’m going to sail far away too,” Rose went on, while her father smiled down at here.  “And captain my own ship just like yours.  And fight the corsairs, and see mountains and dwarves everything.”

Just a heads up for those that were waiting on sending in a submission :) It’s going to be super difficult voting on the pieces because they’re all so fantastic!

Best of luck to everyone!

Rivondir, wearing a new set of Gondorian armor, stands in Dol Amroth overlooking the bay. A warm breeze sends a shower of white leaves through the air, sets the bright blue banners waving, and fills the sails of a swan-ship heading out to sea.

Paying your home village a visit is in itself a very enjoyable activity, but Andre decided to add exploration of the Gondorian cities to her itinerary as well. She found that they used a lot of very pretty symbology, and generally were very noble people, but were humourless compared to the men of Bree and the hobbit-folk of the Shire and Buckland.
All they needed was one good practical joke! So she grabbed a horse from someone and left more hurriedly than is polite. Their sense of humour, unfortunately, did not improve.

8 hours later…. 
Thank you, Lotrogeek, for the fun and generous contest! (Also for giving me motivation to draw something really challenging! ‘u’ )

Hi i'm new on Tumblr, i often play lotro and i would like to share my screenshots with you ! Do you allow me and how can I do this ?

Hi and welcome to tumblr (and lotrogeek ^v^). We love receiving submissions from followers and sharing them with others! There are a few ways you to go about doing that.

  1. You can go to our submit page (http://lotrogeek.tumblr.com/submit) and change post type from text to photo and submit your screenshots that way.
  2. You can post them on your blog and tag it with lotrogeek if you want to make sure we see it and reblog it.
  3. Or you can just post them on your blog and tag with lotro. Normally, I’ll (mairontheadmireable) try to visit the lotro tag a few times a week to load up the queue. 

Can’t wait to see your screenshots (and any/everyone elses!)

A Minstrel’s correspondence

My submission for the contest (and my first tumblr post ever :) I hope the english is not too bad

Dear you,

after riding for such a long time, I reached western Gondor. You know me, so you will not be surprised that I am already helping the people in Dol Amroth. Sometimes I wonder how they would do without me to solve their troubles.

The city itself is gorgeous, so different from what I have seen before. Can you imagine that the streets are paved ? I think you wouldn’t like it but I still wish you were here. It even sounds different, you can hear the wind curling around the towers, the sea stroking the walls and the seagulls high in the sky. I met many interesting Gondorians and took a lot of notes in the library for you.

Despite the beauty I couldn’t bear to stay around so many people. I have set a small camp on a hill, where I wake up to the sight of the sea every day and remember Amroth and Nimrodel. I have found small villages, all with white stones and blue roofs. I hope one day I will be able to show them to you. They look so pristine, in valleys of pink and white trees, surrounded by cristal blue rivers.

I am in the perfect place for composing new ballads, but I am afraid I cannot find time for it. The more I travel, the more I see how the shadow is falling on all of us. I fought dead men and corsairs, drakes and tortues (don’t laugh, these tortues are ferocious) ; I won’t stop as long as they are lurking around good men. 

I won’t tell you about Edhellond, only that it has fallen and that I will make sure that the rest of Gondor won’t meet the same fate.

Tomorrow at dawn I am heading with some companions to the Crown of Tarlang. From what I have hear, this is a grim place and they will need me. Have no fear for me, for the men of Gondor are brave and strong.

           Your favorite minstrel (and her horse, he would like you to know he is as splendid as ever)”
