The Role of the High King

The High King settle disputes between nations of the High King's Kingdom. Since all the nations in the High King's realm pay taxes and homage to him, he is also the one they look to when war threatens their collective hides (as it has been known to do when would-be conquerors like Modru or the Fists of Rakka or other followers of Gyphon try to subdue all). He is the one who suspends all intra-kingdom hostilities and commands the full of the nation's might to repel such would-be conquests. The High King's Navy occasionally takes on the Rovers of Kistan, though the Rovers are a particularly pestilent and persistent foe. So, instead, the High King sends escorts with merchant fleets. And remember, the first High King became High King by whupping the butts of those self-same nations one by one (a strategy we have seen here on Earth, principally, the Romans).

As to Elves and Dwarves, they nominally pay allegiance to the High King, though if push came to shove they would rally with their own against all who would do them ill. The Hidden Ones seem to pay allegiance to no one, though when the bad guys come to call, they will lend support to the High King, mainly by killing bad guys. Some disputes seem to never be permanently settled by the High King, such as the raids between Jute and Fjordland, but periods of peace do manage to occasionally intrude upon these kinds of feuds. So, the High King is the ruler of Kings and the protector of their collective realms.


The Elven Time of Madness...

...and history before the High King...

From the fragmentary evidence I've been able to find (pottery shards, scraps of songs, pieces of scrolls, broken statues, fragments of temple friezes, torn sections of tapestries, and the like), most if not all of the Days of Madness took place on Adonar, though there are indications that some of it took place on Mithgar (the construction of Caer Lindor seems to herald from that time, though other evidence says it came after).

I believe that Aravan was just a callow youth when he was first thrust into those wars. There are hints that Silverleaf was on the other side. Too, it seems that Coron Eiron took part in those wars.

However, the evidence is so fragmentary that I cannot say for certain that any of the above is either true or false.

As to how long Elves were on Mithgar before the first High King... if some of the Madness took place on Mithgar, then it would have been tens of thousands of years if not hundreds.

Trying to assemble that knowledge is extremely difficult, given the derth of reliable evidence. Much of what I have deduced, I've had to rethink due to later findings. You might say that for the most part I am basing much on conjecture, imagination, and whim, along with a bit of logical fabrication (in those places where there are gaps in the evidence ... and there are many, many gaps). Nevertheless, I try to hew to good standards.


Crossings Between the Planes

1) a ring of oaks in the Weiunwood
2) a circle of stones in Rell (Lianion)
3) a small mere in a small clearing in Darda Galion

1) a silver birch grove on Rwn (destroyed at the end of the First Era)

1) Somewhere in Gron in the Gronfang Mountains near Claw Moor/the Iron Tower.

I also know of a four other crossings (which appear in SWBF), but I'll say nothing about them at this time.

As for the locations of all the crossings, I have yet to discover a map or scroll or other document showing where each one is located.

The Lay of the Iron Tower

(Written by D. L. McKiernan - DD P#256-260)

From frozen north
Comes Vile power:
The Evil One in
The Cold Iron Tower.

His black Vulgs rave
Down through the Land;
Before their fangs
A bold few stand.

He calls the Hordes
Of evil kind;
By terror and fear
To him they bind.

The Swarms invade
To east and west.
The allies stand
To brave the test.

Dark Hordes come
Across the plains.
Many are felled;
Cold Death reigns.

Liege is slain
At the keep.
Few escape;
Many weep.

Challerain falls;
Winter is come;
Terror rules
The north Kingdom

The Hosts of the King
Are fettered in War,
As under the Mountains
Stride the Four.

The Horror is felled;
The Four win free;
To Larkenwold come:
The Land of Eld Tree.

South on the river
Ride the Four;
Then a swift gallop
To the Harlingar.

Vanadurin, Wellenen,
Fly toward the Wastes.
The Darkest Day comes;
Make all haste.

Wellenen and Elves,
Hold the way.
The Host races north
For the Darkest Day.

The Heroes come
To the Cold Iron Tower.
Nine are chosen
To assault the Power.

An arrow is loosed
With no chance at all,
Yet it fells the guard
Atop the wall.

The ravine is crossed,
The stone is climbed:
Eight go up;
One stays behind.

Under the wall
Crawls the one,
And wins to the tower
For the Death of the Sun.

The bridge is felled;
The iron teeth lift;
The strike force charges;
The horses are swift.

Swords are in
Among the foe.
Brave friends die;
Sorrow and woe.

Darkness falls;
The Doom has come.
The Fate of the world
Depends on the one.

Through the window slit
The Wee One tries;
Yet Myrkenstone
Traps Warrow eyes.

Evil chants fall
Upon his ears,
And Gyphon comes
From Beyond the Spheres.

Sped by the bow
Of the brave Wee One,
The red arrow is loosed
To strike the Myrkenstone.

The Myrkenstone dies
In a flare of light,
And the Wee One loses
His power of sight.

Yet Modru is slain,
And Gyphon cast below;
And the Dimmendark falls
To the Sun's bright glow.

The Hordes fall dead
By Adon's Ban.
And southward, too,
The War is won.

Many praised the victory;
Many mourned the slain;
Yet all prayed that nevermore
Would War come here again.

Yes once there was great Evil,
And darkling Shadowlight,
But thanks to many a brave one,
Outside the Sun shines bright.

The Loosing of the Red Quarrel

(Written by D. L. McKiernan - DD P#256)

Loose not the Red Quarrel ere apointed dark time
When through the gate His beauty shines
As the portal of Evil's coming ope's
To crush the good and dash all hopes.
His beauty shields vile as Moon shields Sun.
Destiny asks, "Strike which one?"
An Evil so fair, and an Evil in iron,
High in the tower in the Wastes of Gron.
Neither of the two Evils must thy strike claim;
Instead smite the Darkness between the same.
Loose then the Red Quarrel and free the light.
Loose then the Red Quarrel but lose thy sight.

Forever after. - Rime of Narok, Silver Call Duology
