Twenty years after the events in Quest for a Beard 3
About this creation
Twenty years passed quietly in Rivendell and all was peaceful. Lothar and Liam RíMala grew into strong adults and became the best of friends; the inseparables they were called.
But one day all that changed; strange things lurked about in the forests near Rivendell,
and food supplies began to run low.
One day, not long after these things happened, an Elf warrior limped into Rivendell. Instead of standing tall and proud as warriors ought to, he looked wounded and defeated. Elrond soon accepted him into the Last Homely House and learned that his chargeís name was Isthmir.
One day Elrond walked into Isthmirís room
Elrond: Well Isthmir, I see youíre getting better.
Isthmir: Yes, thanks to your healing powers.
Elrond: Think nothing of it. But I would like to know more about how you got injured.
Isthmir: Certainly. It all started when a few other Elves and I left Rivendell, which we never should have done, but we were only a day out and going through the forest.
I was in the back and itís lucky I was or I may not have escaped, but our leader was hacking through some brush with his sword
when we were attacked by giant-giant- I donít know what they were; spiders I think I really donít know.
They killed my companions and wounded me but I outran them. If I had been farther away, I would have died.
Elrond: Evil of this sort has not been this close to Rivendell in three-thousand years; something must be done to stop it.
Isthmir: My lord Elrond, please donít run into this to hastily, I donít know what they were but they were far more powerful than any of our warriors.
Elrond: No, I will send out the best warriors we have.
Elrond left and sought out the best warriors to prepare them for their quest.
