I haven't had the time to read it yet, but after seeing the pictures I can't wait to, it looks right up my street :P
Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf-women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for Dwarf-men.
Aragorn: It's the beards.

Well that was awesome. Best yet in quite a while I think! Every single article was fantastic.

The "first lesson" was so sweet! I loved the bracelet for Momma so much. :)
.... and I see that pick is in Odigan's etsy store. I hope one of our resident dwarves snags it.
I just might have to find myself some of that wool soon and try a shorter cloak - thank you Greg!
I feel the pain on researching Khuzdul: and I thought Westron had sparse sources! At least we're not doing Dunlenders.

Thetrade listing was interesting, but the inn listing is most welcome! I have to think most who've travelled the East Road would be passingly familiar with at least one of them - that does suggest a bit of thought. Which inns might each of our personas have encountered? (The Pony most certainly!)


Fantastic work everyone - thank you all for a pleasant nights reading.

I've read it now, more that once and it's brilliant as always :P

I can't help wondering, was this:

(As overheard at a trade forge in the Iron Hills)
“So you want to you say you're a Dwarf, eh lass?

Inspired by my back story? or is it a happy coincidence :mrgreen:
