Outline-Proposal update


A Few Notes.
+++This outline does not as yet reflect the group consensus on all
points [or on very many] it is primarily the opinions of lindil who
loves lists and such.

+++ I have endeavored to include such decisions as the group has
made [esp. in following the X versions of chapters and subchapters
for the Early Silmarillion.

+++Even where not specifically mentioned it is assumed that All
relevant Annals abd versions of the Quenta Silmarillion of IV,V,X, and XI will be consulted.

+++I have begun [but not completed using the abbreviations used in
the thread of the same name-so check there for resolution to any
obscurities.

++++ [chapters listed from 1977 Silmarillion { aka. &quot;77}&quot; are
brackeeted]&quot;and in time the 77 chapters will be replaced by an
entirely new system based on the final revisions of Morgoth's Ring
and War of the Jewels.

++++ all of the chapters not listed would still need to be compared w/
the many versions in the History series.

++++ Below however I list the major texts [or parts ] which I
think[at this point at least] can [ or should] be inserted in whole or part into the
respective chapters.

++++This is by no means an exhaustive listing ,just a framework to
hang further ideas on -or take them off. I am sure there are alot of
things I havn't caught yet so... Please feel free to monkey around
w/ it and put up a new one.

++++ This not an outline that takes the more radical far reaching
ideas of Myth's transformed into account . The thread of that name
covers some issues ,

Perhaps an outline similar to this w/explanations of the changes
involved in a MT versionof each chapter will appear at some point in
the future.
so here isLindil's 'OLD STYLE' SILMARILLION outline as it stands now:

==================================

I have incorporated an edited bit of a note from Durelen that goes
into the idea of the reworking of the Akallabeth , and a history of
the 2nd and 3rd ages.
<blockquote>Quote:<hr>

'&quot; The second book should [be] everything that occurred during the
Second Age in ME(insert The Druedain here) take most of the
chapters from UT.&quot;<hr></blockquote>
==================================
Comments on the outline, possible revisions and omissions from
the 'additions ' are of course most welcome.

Lindil is often found on posting on the New Silmarillion Canon Forum at the Barrowdowns discussion board. 'The dwindling Men of the West would often sit up late into the night, and awaken early before dawn- exchanging lore and wisdom such as they possessed , so that they should not fall back into the mean and low estate of those , who never knew or more sadly still, had indeed rebelled against the Light.' </p>
