There was a feeling deep down in my mind that Middle Earth as we know it was changing. I feared even that it may be the end. I, Pashraen, gathered in Moria’s 21st Hall with my lover Hesgarlaf, and many many fellow travellers anticipating that this particular chapter in our lives was over. The people partyed, and joked for many hours. I stayed for sometime but eventually fell in to a sleep. I have heard that terrible things were unleashed upon the Halls in those final hours, before the darkness came…….
It has been said that I slept for two, maybe three days. But soon the light returned to the halls, and gradually…… slowly but surely…… the people returned. The world feels somewhat different, but nothing has really changed. It is still a great pleasure to breathe in the air from these lands. And long may that continue.
