The Middle-Earth aesthetic | H a r a d


Harad, fully named Haradwaith, was the immense realm located south of Gondor and Mordor. The Men of Harad were called Southrons or Haradrim. Harad lay between the sea of Umbar to its west and Khand to its northeast, and was divided into two main provinces: Near Harad, which was the closest to both Mordor and Gondor, and Far Harad, nearest to the land of Umbar.

Maglor

Between the arms of Gelion was the ward of Maglor, and here in one place
the hills failed altogether: there it was that the Orcs came into East
Beleriand before the Third Battle. Therefore the Noldor held strength of
cavalry In the plains at that place; and the people of Caranthir fortified the
mountains to the east of Maglor’s Gap.

The Silmarillion aesthetic | The First House of The Noldor | Maedhros

But Maedhros restrained his brothers, and they departed from the council, and soon afterwards they left Mithrim and went eastward beyond Aros to the wide lands about the Hill of Himring. That region was named thereafter the March of Maedhros; for northwards there was little defence of hill or river against assault from Angband. There Maedhros and his brothers kept watch, gathering all such people as would come to them, and they had few dealings with their kinsfolk westward, save at need. It is said indeed that Maedhros himself devised this plan, to lessen the chances of strife, and because he was very willing that the chief peril of assault should fall upon himself.

The Maia Ossë kept them company while they waited, and became their friend. Later when Ulmo returned with the island ferry, the Teleri had grown to love the sea. Ossë convinced Ulmo to anchor the island in the bay of Eldamar, off the shores of Aman, and persuaded many of the Teleri to remain in Middle-Earth.

The Silmarillion aesthetic | King Elu Thingol


A King there was in days of old:
ere men yet walked upon the mould
his power was reared in cavern’s shade,
his hand was over glen and glade […]
Of silver grey his crown was wrought,
the starlight in his banners caught ;
and silver thrilled his trumpets long
beneath the star in challenge strong ;
enchantment did his realm enfold,
where might and glory, wealth untold,
he wielded from his ivory throne
in many pillared halls of stone.

(The Geste of Beren and Lúthien
by J.R.R.Tolkien)
