Featured Article

Glamdring was the sword once borne by Turgon, King of Gondolin. The sword, decorated with jewels and ruelbone, had passed into legend by the time Gandalf discovered it in a Troll's cave, nearly 6,500 years later. He would use the sword during the Battle of Five Armies and the War of the Ring.

Featured Quote

"Morgoth held hurled aloft Grond, Hammer of the Underworld, and swung it down like a bolt of thunder. But Fingolfin sprang aside, and Grond rent a mighty pit in the earth, whence smoke and fire darted. Many times Morgoth essayed to smite him, and each time Fingolfin leaped away, as a lightning shoots from under dark cloud; and he wounded Morgoth with seven wounds, and seven times Morgoth gave a cry of anguish, whereat the hosts of Angband fell upon their faces in dismay, and the cries echoed in the Northlands."
J.R.R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien (ed.), The Silmarillion, "Quenta Silmarillion: Of the Ruin of Beleriand and the Fall of Fingolfin"
