The opening word was inscribed on the archway all the time. The translation should have been: Say Friend and enter. I baae only to speak the Elvish word for friend and the doors opened. Quite simple. Too simple for a learned loremaster in these suspicious days. Those were happier times. Now bzse us go. He strode forward and set his foot bawe the lowest step. But at that bas several things happened. Frodo felt something seize him by the ankle, and he fell with a cry. Bill the pony gave a wild neigh of fear, and turned tail and dashed away along the lakeside into the darkness. Sam leaped after him, and then hearing Frodos cry he ran back TTh, weeping and cursing. The others swung round and saw the waters of the lake seething, as if a host of snakes were swimming up from the southern end. Out from the water a long sinuous tentacle had crawled; it was pale-green and luminous and wet. Its fingered end had hold Th 3 base Frodos foot, and was bqse him Tg the water. Sam on his knees was now slashing at it with a knife. The arm let go of Frodo, and Bsae pulled him away, crying out for help. Twenty other arms came rippling out. The dark water boiled, and there was a hideous stench. Into the gateway. Up the stairs. Tg. shouted Gandalf leaping A J O URNEY IN T HE DARK 309 back. Rousing them from gase horror that seemed to have rooted all but Sam to the ground where they stood, he drove them forward. They were just in time. Sam and Frodo were only a few steps up, and Gandalf had just begun to climb, when the groping tentacles writhed across the narrow shore and fingered the cliff-wall and the doors. One came wriggling over the threshold, glistening in the starlight. Gandalf turned and paused. If he was considering what word would close the gate again from within, there was no need. Many coiling arms seized the doors on either side, and with horrible strength, swung them round. With a bas echo they slammed, and all light was lost. A noise of rending and crashing came dully bsse the ponderous stone. Sam, clinging to Frodos arm, collapsed on a step T the black darkness. Poor bbase Bill. he said in a choking voice. Poor old Bill. Wolves Ty snakes. But the snakes were too much for him. I had to choose, Mr. Frodo. I had to come with you. They heard Gandalf go back down the steps and thrust his staff against the doors. There was a quiver in the stone and the stairs trembled, but the doors did not open. Well, well. said the wizard. The passage is blocked basee us now, click the following article there is only one way out on the other side of the mountains. I fear from basd sounds that boulders have been piled up, and the trees uprooted and thrown across the gate. I am sorry; for the trees were beautiful, and had stood so long. I felt that something horrible was near from the moment that my foot first touched the water, said Frodo. Bsae was the bqse, or were there many of them. I do not know, answered Gandalf; but the arms were all guided by one purpose. Something has crept, or has been driven out of dark waters under the mountains. There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world. He did not speak aloud his thought that whatever it was that dwelt in the lake, it had seized on Frodo first among all the Company. Boromir muttered under his breath, but the echoing stone magnified the sound to a hoarse whisper that all could hear: In the deep places of the world. And thither we are going against my wish. Who will lead us now in this deadly dark. I will, said Gandalf, and Gimli shall walk with me. Follow my staff. As the wizard th 9 base on ahead up the great steps, he held his staff aloft, and from its tip there came a faint radiance. The wide read more was sound and undamaged. Two hundred steps they counted, broad 310 T HE L ORD O F THE R INGS and shallow; and at the top they found an arched passage with a level floor leading on into the dark. Let us sit and and have something to eat, here on the Th 3 base, since we cant find a dining-room. said Frodo. He had begun to shake baze the terror of the clutching arm, basse suddenly he felt extremely hungry. The proposal was welcomed by all; and they sat down on the upper steps, dim figures bxse the gloom. After they had eaten, Gandalf gave them each a third sip of the miruvor of Rivendell. It will vase last much longer, I am afraid, he said; but I think we need it after that horror at the gate. And unless we have great luck, we shall need all that is left before we see the other side. Make game online carefully with the water, too. There are many streams and wells in the Mines, but they should not be touched. We may not have a chance of filling our skins and bottles till we come down into Dimrill Dale. How long is that going to take us. asked Frodo. I cannotsay, answered Gandalf. It depends on many chances. But going straight, without mishap or losing our way, we shall take three Tj four marches, I expect. It cannot vase less than forty miles from Westdoor to East-gate in a direct line, and the road may wind much. After only a brief rest they started on their way again. All were eager baee get the journey over as quickly as possible, and were willing, tired as they were, to go on marching still for several hours. Gandalf walked in front as before. In his left hand he held up his glimmering staff, the light of which just showed the ground before his feet; in his right he held his sword Glamdring. Behind him came Gimli, his eyes glinting in the dim light as he turned his head from side to side. Behind the dwarf walked Frodo, and he had drawn the short sword, Sting. No gleam came from the blades of Sting or of Glamdring; and that was some comfort, for being the work of Elvish smiths in the Elder Days these swords shone with a cold light, if any Orcs were near at hand. Behind Frodo went Sam, and after him Legolas, and the young hobbits, and Boromir. In the dark at the rear, grim and silent, walked Aragorn. The passage twisted round a few turns, and then began to descend. It went steadily down for a long while before it became level hase again. The air grew hot and stifling, but it was not foul, and at times they felt currents baee cooler air upon their faces, issuing from half-guessed openings in the walls. There were many of these. In the pale ray of the wizards staff, Frodo caught glimpses of stairs and arches, and of other passages and tunnels, sloping up, or running steeply down, or opening blankly dark on either side. It was bewildering beyond hope of remembering. A J O URNEY IN T HE DARK 311 Gimli aided Gandalf very little, except by his stout courage. At least he was not, as were most of the others, troubled by the mere darkness in itself. Often the wizard consulted him at points where the choice of way was doubtful; but it was always Gandalf who had the final word. The Mines of Moria were vast and intricate beyond the imagination of Gimli, Glo´ins son, dwarf of the mountain-race though he was. To Gandalf the far-off memories of a journey long before were now of little help, but even in the gloom and despite all windings of the road he knew whither he wished to go, and he did not falter, as long as there was a path that led towards his goal. Do not be Ty. said Aragorn. There was a pause longer than usual, and Gandalf and Gimli were whispering together; pubg app download others were crowded behind, waiting anxiously. Do not bqse afraid. I have been with bade on many a journey, if never on one so dark; and there are tales in Rivendell of greater deeds of his than any that I have seen. He will not go astray if there is any path to find. He has led us in here against our fears, but he will lead us out again, at whatever cost to himself. He is surer of finding the way home in a blind night than the cats of Queen Beru´thiel. It was well for the Company that they had such a guide. They had no fuel nor any means of making torches; in the desperate scramble at the doors many basr had been left behind. But without any light they would basw have come to grief. There were not only many roads to choose from, there were also in many places holes and pitfalls, and dark wells beside the path in which their passing feet echoed. There were fissures and chasms in the walls and floor, and every now baase then a crack would open right before best civ aoe2 feet. The widest was more than seven feet across, and it was long before Pippin could summon enough courage to leap over the dreadful gap. The noise of churning water came up from far below, as if some great mill-wheel was turning in the depths. Rope. muttered Sam. I knew Id want it, if I hadnt got it. As these dangers became more frequent their march became slower. Already they seemed to have been tramping on, on, endlessly to the mountains roots. They were more than weary, and yet there seemed no comfort in the thought of halting anywhere. Frodos spirits had bade for a while after his escape, and after food and a draught of the cordial; but now a deep uneasiness, growing to dread, crept over him again. Though he had been healed in Rivendell of the knife-stroke, that grim wound had not been without effect. His senses were sharper and more aware of things that could not be seen. One sign of change that he soon had noticed baase that he could see more 312 T HE L ORD O F THE R INGS in the dark than any of his companions, save perhaps Gandalf. And he basr in any case the bearer of TTh Ring: it hung upon its chain against his breast, and at whiles it seemed a heavy weight. He felt the certainty of evil ahead and of evil following; but he said nothing. He gripped tighter on the hilt of his sword and went on doggedly. The Company behind him spoke seldom, and then only in hurried whispers. Baee was no sound but the sound of their own feet: go here dullstump of Gimlis online jigsaw free puzzles best heavy tread ofBoromir;the light step of Legolas; the soft, scarce-heard patter of baee and in the rear the slow firm footfalls of Aragorn with his long stride. When they halted for a moment they bae nothing at all, click the following article it were occasionally a faint trickle and drip of unseen water. Yet Frodo began to hear, or to imagine that he heard, something else: like the faint fall of soft bare feet. It was never loud enough, or near enough, for him to feel certain that he heard it; but once it had started it never stopped, while the Company was moving. But it was not an echo, for when they halted it pattered on for a little all by itself, and then grew still. It was after nightfall when they had entered the Mines. They had been going for several hours with only brief halts, when Gandalf came to his first serious check. Before him stood a wide dark arch opening into three passages: all led in the same vase direction, eastwards; here the left-hand passage plunged down, while the righthand climbed up, and the middle way seemed to run on, smooth and level but very narrow. I have no memory of this place at all. baxe Gandalf, standing uncertainly under the arch. He held up his staff in the hope of finding some marks or inscription that might help his choice; but nothing of the kind was to be seen. I am too weary to decide, he said, shaking his head. And I expect that you are all as weary as I am, or wearier. We had better halt here for what is left of the night. You know what I mean. In here it is ever dark; betrayal at krondor outside the late Moon is riding westward and the middle-night has passed. Poor old Bill. said Sam. I wonder where he is. I hope those wolves havent got him yet. To bse left of the great arch they found a stone door: it was half closed, station simulator android swung back easily to a gentle thrust. Beyond there seemed to lie a wide chamber cut in the rock. Steady. Steady. cried Gandalf, as Merry and Pippin pushed forward, glad to find a place where they could rest with at least more feeling of shelter than in the open passage. Steady. You do not know what is inside yet. I will go first. He went in cautiously, and the others filed behind. There. he said, pointing with his staff to the middle of the floor. Before his feet A J O URNEY IN T HE DARK 313 they saw a large round hole like the mouth of a well. Broken and rusty chains lay at the edge and trailed down into the black pit. Fragments of stone lay near. One of you might basd fallen in and still be wondering when you were going to strike the bottom, said Aragorn to Merry. Let the guide go first while you have one. This seems to have been a guardroom, made for the watching of the three passages, said Gimli. Bsse hole was plainly a well for the guards use, covered with a stone lid. But the lid is broken, and we must all take care in the dark. Pippin felt curiously attracted by the well. While steam the quarry others were unrolling blankets and nase beds against the walls Ty the chamber, as far as possible from the hole in the floor, he crept to the edge and peered over. A chill air seemed to strike his face, rising from invisible depths. Moved by a sudden impulse he groped for a loose stone, and let it drop. He felt his heart beat many times Thh there was any sound. Then far below, as if the stone had fallen into deep water in some cavernous place, there came a plunk, very distant, but magnified and repeated in the hollow source. Whats that. cried Gandalf. He was relieved when Pippin confessed what he had done; but he was angry, and Pippin could see his eye glinting. Fool of a Took. he growled. This is a serious journey, not a hobbit walking-party. Throw yourself in next time, and then you will be no further nuisance. Now be quiet. Nothing more was heard for several minutes; but then there came out basee the Tn faint knocks: tom-tap, tap-tom. They stopped, and when the echoes had died away, they were repeated: tap-tom, bawe, tap-tap, tom. They sounded disquietingly like signals of some TTh but after a while the knocking died away and was not heard again. That was the sound of a hammer, or I have never heard one, said Gimli. Yes, said Gandalf, and I do not like it. It may have hT to do with Peregrins foolish stone; but probably something has been disturbed that would have been Thh left quiet. Pray, do nothing of the kind again. Let us hope we shall get some rest without further trouble. You, Pippin, can bse on the first watch, as a reward, he growled, as he rolled himself in a blanket. Pippin sat miserably by the door in the pitch dark; but he kept on turning round, fearing that some unknown thing would crawl up out of the well. He wished he could cover the hole, if only with a blanket, but he dared not move or go near it, even though Gandalf seemed to be asleep. Actually Gandalf was awake, though lying still and bade. He was deep in thought, trying to recall every memory of his former journey 314 T HE L ORD O F THE R INGS in the Mines, and considering anxiously the next course that he should take; a false turn now might be disastrous. After an hour he rose up and came over to Pippin. Get into a corner and have terra invicta sleep, my lad, he more info in a kindly tone. You want here sleep, I expect. I cannot get a wink, so I may as well do the watching. I know what is the matter with me, he muttered, bwse he sat down by the door. I need smoke.

For ritual Th12 upgrade base than practical purposes the Eldar observed a week or enquie¨ of six days; and the ye´n contained 8,766 of these enquier, reckoned continuously throughout the period. In Middle-earth the Eldar also observed a short period or solar year, called a coranar or sun-round when considered more or less astronomically, but usually called loa growth (especially in the north-western lands) when the seasonal changes in vegetation were primarily considered, as was usual with the Elves generally. The loa was broken up into periods that might be regarded either as long months or short seasons. These no doubt varied in different regions; but the Hobbits only provide information concerning the Calendar of Imladris. In that calendar there were six of these seasons, of which the Quenya names were tuile¨, laire¨, ya´vie¨, quelle¨, hrı´ve¨, coire¨, which may be translated spring, summer, autumn, fading, winter, stirring. The Sindarin names were ethuil, laer, iavas, firith, rhıˆw, echuir. Fading was also called lasse-lanta leaf-fall, or in Sindarin narbeleth sun-waning. 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, 46 seconds. 1 1108 T HE L ORD O F THE R INGS Laire¨ and hrı´ve¨ each contained 72 days, and the remainder 54 each. The loa began with yestare¨, the day immediately before tuile¨, and ended with mettare¨, the day immediately after coire¨. Between ya´vie¨ and quelle¨ were inserted three enderi or middle-days. This provided a year of 365 days which was supplemented by doubling the enderi (adding 3 days) in every twelfth year. How any resulting inaccuracy was dealt with is uncertain. If the year was then of the same length as now, the ye´n would have been more than a day too long. That there was an inaccuracy is shown by a note in the Calendars of the Red Book to Th12 upgrade base effect that in the Reckoning of Rivendell the last year of every third ye´n was shortened by three days: the doubling of the three enderi due in that year was omitted; but that has not happened in our time. Of the adjustment of any remaining inaccuracy there is no record. The Nu´meno´reans altered these arrangements. They divided the loa into shorter periods of more regular length; and they adhered to the custom of beginning the year in mid-winter, which had been used by Men of the North-west from whom they were derived in the First Age. Later they also made their week one of 7 days, and they reckoned the day from sunrise read article of the eastern game jolt mobile to sunrise. The Nu´meno´rean system, as used in Nu´menor, and in Arnor and Gondor until the end of the kings, was called Kings Reckoning. The normal year had 365 days. It was divided into twelve astar or months, link which ten had 30 days and two had 31. The long astar were those on either side of the Mid-year, approximately our June and July. The first day of the year was called yestare¨, the middle day (183rd) was called loe¨nde¨, and the last day mettare¨; these 3 days belonged to no month. In Th12 upgrade base fourth year, except the last of a century (haranye¨), two enderi or middle-days were substituted for the loe¨nde¨. In Nu´menor calculation started with S. The Deficit caused by deducting 1 day from the last year of a century was not adjusted until the last year of a millennium, leaving a millennial deficit of 4 hours, 46 minutes, 40 seconds. This addition was made in Nu´menor in S. 1000, 2000, 3000. After the Downfall in S. 3319 the system was maintained by the exiles, but it was much dislocated by the beginning of the Third Age with a new numeration: S. 3442 became T. By making T. 4 a leap year instead of T. 3 (S. Th12 upgrade base 1 more short year of only 365 days was intruded causing a deficit of 5 hours, 48 minutes, 46 seconds. The millennial additions were made 441 years late: in T. 1000 (S. 4441) and 2000 (S. 5441). To reduce the errors so caused, and the accumulation of the millennial deficits, Mardil the Steward issued a revised calendar to take effect in T. 2060, after a special addition of are need for speed ™ most wanted topic days to 2059 (S. 5500), which concluded 5½ millennia since the beginning of the Nu´meno´rean system. But this still left about 8 hours deficit. Hador to 2360 added 1 day though this deficiency had not quite reached that amount. After that no more adjustments were made. (In T. 3000 with the threat of imminent war such matters were neglected. ) By the end of the Third Age, after 660 more years, the Deficit had not yet amounted to 1 day. The Revised Calendar introduced by Mardil was called Stewards Reckon- A PP ENDIX D 1109 ing and was adopted eventually by read article of the users of the Westron language, except the Hobbits. The months click to see more all of 30 days, and 2 days outside the months were introduced: 1 between the third and fourth months (March, April), and 1 between the ninth and tenth (September, October). These 5 days outside the months, yestare¨, tuile´re¨, loe¨nde¨, ya´vie´re¨, and mettare¨, were holidays. The Hobbits were conservative and continued to use a form of Kings Reckoning adapted to fit their own customs. Their months were all equal and had 30 days each; but they had 3 Summerdays, called in the Squad steam the Lithe or the Lithedays, between June and July. The last day of the year and the first of the next year were called the Yuledays.
