In a dream Ulmo spoke to two elves and bade them build hidden fortresses.

Who were they, what did they build?

Turgon and Finrod.
Turgon was to build Gondolin and Finrod Nargothrond. Each was later destroyed by the treachery of Morgoth.

Dagnir Glaurunga which means Glaurung's Bane could be added to that.

Lol, what a mess... Turoch, go ahead. Pallando, please in future, remember that to ask, you must first answer and recieve confirmation of answer. It isn't a free-for-all. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

However, if you want to ask your question without first answering (patience...!) you can start your own thread. Click on New Topic to do this.

Welcome though, all three of you.

Well now that you say that, I know that you're thinking of Melkor, but technically he wasn't a Vala anymore, or at least I don't think. Anyways, its Melkor.

Mea culpa! This was a prior to the First Age question.

Telchar was correct - It was 2nd Age in the Ages of The Trees, and referred to the chaining of Melkor.

Go ahead, Telchar - bring us back to the 1st Age.

Hmm this thread appears to be falling back into the mists of history. I hope Telchar forgives me for bursting in on his turn, but i'd like to see this thread have some more action. Okay here's a question for anyone who wants it. What king was called "he who looks afar".
