Elendil’s Sword and a Pub Crawl

Filed under: Geek Stuff — britinla @ 9:52 pm

It has been a busy week for my dwarf in Middle Earth. The Spring Festival arrived and among the activities on offer he was invited to join the Shire Inn League. No dwarf is going to turn down a free beer, or in this case forty two free beers as he raced around the Shire to seven taverns and knocked back six at each location. By the end, the screen was blurry and he was swaying back and forth. Despite the challenges, he completed the quest and is now a member of the Inn League. Having obtained that honour, he acquired the title of “Inn League Sage of Fine Spirits”  by sampling twenty-three brews from as far afield as Michael Delving and Rivendell.

The Spring Festival also brought gifts in the mail which included a rather dashing corsair’s hat which you can see in the pictures below. Whilst in the Shire, he also helped a local baker collect pies from a tainted lot without having them nabbed by passing hungry hobbits.

On a more significant level a group of us went to the long lost tomb of Elendil to retrieve a gem that was needed to reforge the blade that was broken. This was the last step in a long series of quests that we have been following since Aragon requested our aid. This final step was a great challenge, but finally we triumphed and brought the gem back to Rivendell. We were present as the sword once called Nasril and now known as Anduril was made anew at Elrond’s forges. Without our aid this mighty blade could not have been forged.
