2. Author's Notes

1 - I am not a Linguist. I do not even play one on TV. The character names were put together after an evening at Ardalambion and probably violate most of the rules of Sindarin & Noldor (Quenya) word-putting-together. Please let me know if they impede the flow of the tale, or cause confusion and chaos... wait... the last pair are what I wanted to do. The names were also created to separate the Noldor families in Rivendel from the house's commoners and definitely separate them from the native "hired help".

2 - The "Old Nandor's Tale" of the Trees alluded to herein is entirely "ficticious". I know that some Avarri saw those that followed Orome as deserters, but I thought that others would be in awe of them, and tales may have sprung up among the "backwoods Nandor" to explain it.

- I'll add more notes as I remember them!
