Mirkwood

Once a fair name it had
In those days all was glad
Morgoth’s power was over thrown
And little evil was known
But evil soon returned
As the elves quickly learned
In their dread
Many elves fled
Across the sea
To peacefully be

But Thranduil still held the throne
In his halls of stone
Away with evil they did
And no more they hid
It was renamed wood of the green leaves
And many new homes were built in its eaves

Artisans' Corner

Serveanthesia began to take the silver and heat it, and started the long task of pulling it out into wire that she could use to create designs with. The silver had finally
reached a good diameter where she could begin to shape the rough outlines of a lamp. Heating the silver once more where she would make the bends, she
hammered the metal until she had the basic frame, a hexagonal base with six thin, yet strong rods of silver coming up from each bend with a second frame going
about the six bends at the top. She wove another gold strand about the silver frame, giving it support as well as brilliance. Each time the gold wrapped around the
frame, a diamond was held between the gold and the silver.

Carefully, Serveanthesia looked at each one of gems that was placed in the center of the room. She chose countless diamonds that were perfectly clear. These she
would put on each of the side panels to help scatter the light. As she kept looking, she found several emeralds, sapphires, rubies, several pearls of varying sizes and
a few other varying precious stones. Of these, she decided to use the pearls for the roof of each lamp and set aside the gems that would be integrated into the
design. With thousands of different designs for the doors running through her head, Serveanthesia sat down and began sketching each out in its turn. She finally
finished the sketches, five in total, and returned to her frame. She had chosen the sketch that featured a swan on the door of the lantern. It would be made as an
outline using the silver wire and set in the center of the panel with a single emerald for its eye.

Taking another piece of silver, she heated and pulled it into a wire as well. She hammered and bent it into a rectangle that fit snugly, into the frame, yet was loose
enough to swing out as a door. She took the silver wire from before and began to make the rough outlines of a swan inside this panel. Hours and hours passed and
she finally grabbed the emerald. Carefully drilling a small hole in it, she positioned the green stone to be the swan's eye. She had finished the lantern door. Standing
back to admire her work, she smiled, and returned to the lantern. There were the crystal sheets that she found in the corner of the tent. She cut them to fit into the five
other panels of the lantern. Then, she etched out a star in the
center of each crystal pane. Each panel was then put into the lantern, including the door with its hinges.
The top was a hexagonal pyramid that’s top was flat. She fashioned this out of six sheets of silver that she inlaid with gold in various designs. The top was crowned with an
edge of pearls with one great one in the center. From that one pearl, a thin, yet strong chain came out for it to be hung on the ship. Satisfied with her work, she wrapped it
carefully, in cloth and went in search of Cirdan.

Artisans' Corner

When asked to peruse through books of learning, that is oft forgotten, you seldom expect to find that plants such as those that grow within your garden may actually
have some benefit to your health. Filled with knowledge from my reading, I made my way into the gardens of Rivendell to see what I could discover.
I found several plants, which can be placed into the category of first aid plants – these are those, which you can carry with you when on a trek in case of injury.
I must stress however that they are not cure-alls, but they do however do a lot of good. Both of the recipes this month can be made in advance and carried with you
– but they are also able to be made en-route.

A cure for Bee Stings and other Injuries of a similar nature
Three Thumb-sized leaves of Bee Balm
Three leaves of Savory
1 once of beeswax

Tear the leaves and stew in enough boiling water to cover them until the water has cooled.
Strain out the herbs, and leave the water to reduce by half.
Meanwhile crush the leaves into a paste, and mix this with the water.
Melt the wax and stir in the herb & water mix.
Pour into a seal able container and leave to set.
Rub into the skin around the Sting and leave. The pain should wear away within moments, and the swelling within a few minutes.
This mix can be stored and kept for use in emergencies.

Disinfecting Wounds 4 cloves Garlic, crushed
2 leaves Lemon Balm, torn and steeped in water
2 sprigs Thyme, torn and steeped in water
1 measure Brandy

Bring the Brandy to the boil, and add the crushed cloves and the water from the Lemon Balm & Thyme
Leave to cool, strain, and place within a bottle or similar
Apply by soaking linen in the spirit and swabbing the wound in question.
((If the patient is in a shock, a half-measure of this spirit will soon sort them out! *grin*))

Part the Something or Other

There Pippit came from England cold,
Still lost Elves wandered under leaves,
And where the mandarins and maces rolled
Elrond started wondering
He peered into the minds of Elves
Creating strategy and semi-tidiness
Upon her head was now frown
The name of “pruneface” ever following
