Discalimer: All of Arda belongs to The Professor. I am just a visitor.
The great vale in the arms of the mountains lay littered with the bodies of the victors. Seldom had so bitter a victory been claimed, for they had gained neither their home, nor gold, feasting or song. Not even tombs for the dead could be bought with this win. Vengeance they had, but that was all.
Their fallen they stripped of armor and axe, that their enemies might have no more joy than they.
But before they could carried the weight of heart and iron home, the bodies they could not lay in stone were given instead to the fire.
