Here you can find all narrative installments from the Dwarrowdelf cycle.
Author’s Note: Aragorn spoke in The Fellowship of the Ring of having passed through Moria once, and that his experience was “evil,” though he said no more. It is fair to assume he passed through Moria before Balin went there to establish his colony, since Aragorn specifically used the word “evil” to describe the place, and did not know of Balin’s fate at the time of the fellowship’s passage. Because of this murky history, I’ve sought a more creative means of telling the stories in this cycle, and the narratives herein do not follow, in terms of linear time, from the narratives of the previous cycle. Instead, it begins many years prior, when Aragorn is young, and freshly removed from the revelation that he is a descendent of Isildur; Elrond bestows upon him the shattered Narsil, and Aragorn carries it now, although, still rather hesitantly. I hope you continue to enjoy the story!
