lindil has just left Hobbiton.
Looks great Fin.
ONe question comes to mind; what of the Tale of the Druedain in UT?
It is clearly 1st Age narrative but is equally clearly tangential to the Silmarillion and the great Tales. If it were included perhaps between Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth
. Appendix: The Tale of Adanel
. 21 Of the Ruin of Beleriand and the Fall of Fingolfin

but, as I wrote that I recall that from the clues in the text it really should be later as Orcs are all around Brethil, which I think is not only post Braggolach, but maybe post Nirnaeth as well. THe text may be more explicit, I will have to check.
But putting it any later would be I think extremely awkward as the events after the Nirnaeth all move very specifically towards the Ruin of Gondolin,Doriath and Nargothrond.
Great work, if others agree in principle a simplified version should be put in the intro thread to replace the old outline.
The dwindling Men of the West would often sit up late into the night exchanging lore & wisdom such as they still possessed that they should not fall back into the mean estate of those who never knew or indeed rebelled against the Light.
