Glen Ilwine

Glen ilwineThe Glade-lord Súlor dwells in Glen Ilwine, a small holding in a ravine on the southern slopes of the Green-hill Country of Siragalë in Arthedain. It’s also called Thurbanan, “Vale of Hidden Peace.”

Fewer than thirty Siranna Elves live there, belonging to four families housed in three flets and four small woodcots. The community appears to have been almost swallowed by oaks, beeches, elms, and hazel, but the paths among the tangled trees are level and the interiors of the cots spacious. In the Glade-lord’s dwelling, Siranna hides and reed baskets mix incongruously with gold ornaments of Noldo fashioning, richly bound tomes from Númenórean times, silks from Harad and Rhûn, and small, fine sculptures beaten from Dwarven mithril and Arthadan silver. A grassy glade isolated high on a ridge above the ravine serves as a dancing ground and meeting place for the Elves and their few visitors. Only a few guests are privileged to see how richly Súlor lives.
