Highlight catch-up

Sorry for not doing some of this sooner. It's too hot for much computer work.

Artifacts
+ The Ring of Barahir - It's serpant design is based on the badge of Finarfin and his house. Graham Lockwood also provides links to where you can buy a copy of the ring from the films (seen on Aragorn's hand).

Influences
+ The Desolation before Mordor - From letter 226 of Tolkien's letters:
  "The Dead Marshes and the approaches to the Morannon owe something to Northern France after the Battle of the Somme."

Storytime
+ Shire Murder Mysteries: Death of Heir - Chapter 14 has been teuncily posted.

Did you miss the Friday highlights?
