"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
It had a perfectly round door like a porthole, painted green, with a shiny yellow brass knob in the exact middle. The door opened on to a tube-shaped hall like a tunnel: a very comfortable tunnel without smoke, with panelled walls, and floors tiled and carpeted, provided with polished chairs, and lots and lots of pegs for hats and coats – the hobbit was fond of visitors. The tunnel wound on and on, going fairly but not quite straight into the side of the hill – The Hill, as all the people for many miles round called it – and many little round doors opened out of it, first on one side and then on another. No going upstairs for the hobbit: bedrooms, bathrooms, cellars, pantries (lots of these), wardrobes (he had whole rooms devoted to clothes), kitchens, dining-rooms, all were on the same floor, and indeed on the same passage. The best rooms were all on the left-hand side (going in), for these were the only ones to have windows, deep-set round windows looking over his garden, and meadows beyond, sloping down to the river.
- J. R. R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

As the King of Rohan.Théoden was growing weak with age, and was largely controlled by his chief advisor Gríma, who was secretly in the employ of the corrupt wizard Saruman. In Unfinished Tales, it is implied that Gríma was accelerating the king's decline with "subtle poisons". As Théoden sat powerless, Rohan was troubled by Orcs and Dunlendings, who operated under the will of Saruman, ruling from Isengard.

When his son Théodred was mortally wounded at a battle at the Fords of Isen, Théoden's nephew Éomer became his heir. However, Éomer was out of favour with Wormtongue, who eventually had him arrested.

When Gandalf the White and Aragorn appeared before him , Théoden initially rebuffed the wizard's advice to ride out against Saruman. When Gandalf revealed Wormtongue for what he was, however, Théoden returned to his senses. He restored his nephew, took up his sword Herugrim, and in spite of his age, led the Riders of Rohan into the Battle of the Hornburg. After this he became known as Théoden Ednew, the Renewed.
I think my next work will be in Hornburg.haha

Ungoliant aided the evil Vala Melkor in his attack upon the Two Trees of Valinor, draining them of their sap after Melkor had injured them, extinguishing the source of light for the world. She also consumed the reserves of light from the wells of Varda. Afterward the light of the trees persisted only within the Silmarils of Fëanor. Ungoliant helped Melkor evade the Valar by shrouding them both in her impenetrable darkness, causing blindness and confusion amongst the hosts of the Valar that attempted to intercept them.
Melkor had promised Ungoliant that he would yield anything she wished in return for her aid, but betrayed this promise by attempting to withhold the Silmarils from her. This angered Ungoliant, who, having grown immensely powerful from ingesting the life force of the Two Trees, trapped Melkor in her webs. At this point he gave out a cry of such fear and intensity that it was heard in the depths of Angband, and the Balrogs rushed to the aid of their master, scourging Ungoliant with their whips of flame.
Ungoliant fled to the Ered Gorgoroth in Beleriand. At some point she gave birth to Giant Spiders, including the character Shelob in The Lord of the Rings. In The Silmarillion, it is stated that when she went into hiding her hunger was such that she would mate with spiders only to devour them later, with her offspring to be used as food once they were fully grown.
Shelob was an "evil thing in spider form...[the] last child of Ungoliant to trouble the unhappy world", living high in the Ephel Dúath mountains that border Mordor. There are numerous references to her being ancient, predating the events of The Lord of the Rings by many ages. Although she resided in Mordor and was unrepentantly evil, she was independent of Sauron and his influence.
This creature makes her first appearance in the chapter "The Stairs of Cirith Ungol", though she is formally introduced in the next chapter "Shelob's Lair" where the author says "But still she was there, who was there before Sauron, and before the first stone of Barad-dûr; and she served none but herself, drinking the blood of Elves and Men, bloated and grown fat with endless brooding on her feasts, weaving webs of shadow; for all living things were her food, and her vomit darkness." Her descendants (upon whom she would often feed) include the Giant Spiders who captured and were defeated by Bilbo Baggins's Dwarf allies in Mirkwood in The Hobbit.
Shelob's lair was Torech Ungol, below Cirith Ungol ("Pass of the Spider"). It lay along the path that Sam Gamgee and Frodo Baggins took into Mordor along their route to Mount Doom. Her spider-silk, which was spun in both rope and cobweb form, was strong and cleverly made, trapping those who walked into it. Shelob had encountered Gollum during his previous trip to Mordor, and he apparently worshipped her after his fashion. The Orcs of the Tower of Cirith Ungol called her "Shelob the Great" and "Her Ladyship," and knew of Gollum's relationship with her (they referred to him as "Her Sneak"). Sauron himself was aware of her existence, but left her alone, as she was a useful guard on the pass. He occasionally sent her prisoners for whom he had no further use.
Gollum led the Hobbits into her lair so that he could get the One Ring after she consumed them, as she had no use for it. After losing track of Gollum, the Hobbits realized that the tunnel was blocked by her webs. She cornered them, but Frodo used the Phial of Galadriel's light to drive her off. Frodo then used Sting to cut the webs and the Hobbits thought that they had escaped the trap.
However Gollum waylaid the pair and tried to strangle Sam, while Shelob stung and paralysed Frodo. An enraged Sam fought off Gollum and then battled Shelob desperately using his master's sword Sting. Sam first hewed off a claw from one of her legs and stabbed out one eye (the latter being the only soft part of her body). Then he inflicted a deep gash upon her body. Seeking to crush Sam, she instead impaled herself upon Sting. Shelob's rage was rekindled and she resolved to kill Sam, but he defeated her by unleashing the light of the Phial of Galadriel, which burned and temporarily blinded her. Shelob fled into her lair, significantly wounded. Her final fate, according to the text, will remain unknown to the people of Middle-earth。

the story of Pandaria Emperor Shaohao
here is the story:

The One-Way Journey

The time was ten thousand years ago, maybe more. Back then, the Well of Eternity was still there, and Kalimdor was still the Land of Eternal Starlight. The dynasty of Pandaren of Pandaria had lasted for years and generations that no one could tell.

The empire of Pandaren was built upon their overthrowing of the slavery of the Mogu. But still, it took a lot of efforts to remain peaceful with all the other strong and even aggressive races, which was a hard burden for the emperors of Pandaren.

Pandaren had great faith in Shao Hao, the crown prince, that he would be a leader of great deeds. The crown prince took training at Tian Monastery, which endowed him of the top-notch skills of a monk. Domestically he was benevolent to his people. Diplomatically he allied with other races - Jinyu, Hozen, Grummle and Yaungol - so they could make peace with each other, excluding the Mantid and the Mogu. He also shared a profound bond with the Monkey King, the leader of Hozen.

After crowning, he was referred as Emperor Shao Hao.

According to the old tradition, every new emperor needed to visit the Jinyu elder at Jade Forest who possessed the mystic power of fortune-telling by listening to the words of water. However, what was told to Shao Hao was cruelty and terror beyond his imagination.

Night elves would summon the Burning Legion, who would devour everything of Kalimdor, including Pandaria.

From that moment, the newly crowned Emperor Shao Hao realized his destiny. The throne was no longer an easy task for him. He had to search through his whole life with difficulties to fulfill it. All the glories and fortune of an emperor meant nothing to him. He had to set out immediately on the journey of the salvation of Pandaria.

This journey would be of all pains and no happiness. Should he fail, it would be the end of all.

Monkey King and the Sha

Many roads did Emperor Shao Hao took, many people did he counsel with. In this tedious and fruitless journey which seemed endless, he came to realize that the wisdom of the Celestials was essential to the puzzles. By himself he climbed up Mount Neverest, the highest summit of Azeroth in order to seek the counsel of Yu’lon, the Jade Serpent. Yu’lon did not seem to disappoint him. Shao Hao seemed to find a way to save everything – he was required to free all the burdens upon his shoulders, cleanse his body and soul, so he could be the one with the land.

But the wisdom of the Jade Serpent confused Emperor Shao Hao. What were the burdens that he needed to let go? How could he purify himself? And which was the way to be the one with the land? All these questions puzzled Shao Hao. No zen could help him to discover the secrets within.

Maybe it finally came down to his incapability? How did such an incompetent emperor deserve his jade throne? The frustrations and hopelessness depressed him. All the negative emotions became heavy burdens crawling on his shoulders. He felt like he was about to succumb.

Witnessing his bosom friend in great doubt, the Monkey King tried his best to help. He came to Jade Forest to whittle a strange magic visage out of bamboo in order to please Emperor Shao Hao. But the unexpected happened. The doubt of Shao Hao was absorbed into the mask, his doubt no longer linger. Yet another unexpected thing happened. After they buried the magic visage that had absorbed the doubt of Emperor Shao Hao deep into the earth, a monster that brought forth doubt showed up.

It was called Sha.

Just walking out of shadow, Emperor Shao Hao was confronted with the monster that the Monkey King created unintentionally. What was worse, they soon discovered that Sha could not be eliminated but controlled and sealed. Even for a strong warrior like Shao Hao and with the help of the Monkey King, it took seven hours to eventually have Sha controlled. Sha was sealed within the Jade Forest for real this time.

The idea finally struck Emperor Shao Hao. It came to him that what Yu’lon required him to do was to eliminate the negative emotions such as doubt, so he could one day gain the ability to save Pandaria.

The Seven Burdens

On realizing that, he immediately went to visit the Red Crane, and by the power of the mask that the Monkey King carved for him, he expelled his despair. The Sha of Despair held the dark power of devouring all the hopes. Shao Hao, the Monkey King and the Red Crane fought the Sha of Despair in the pouring rain for four days and five nights. Eventually they sealed it under the land of Krasarang Wilds.

With no hesitation, Emperor Shao Hao and his companions headed to Temple of the Black Ox on the Mantid Steppes beyond the Great Wall. This time they faced the Sha of Fear, who possessed even greater power. The Black Ox joined the three to fight. It took eight days for them to seal the Sha of Fear under Mantid Steppes.

After these battles Emperor fully understood the desperately evil power of Sha, and the countermeasure came to his mind. He gathered the best of all the best Pandaren warriors in Pandaria, and established Shado-Pan. Together, they reached temple of the White Tiger, the last station of the journey. With the help of the White Tiger, Emperor Shao Hao demonstrated the skills to yield and seal Sha, and successfully sealed his Violence, Anger and Hatred under this land.

Thus Emperor Shao Hao finally sealed all his negative emotions. The Pandaren of Shado-Pan had to become the undercover protectors of Pandaria, working on the controlling and sealing of Sha.

After he let go all the seven burdens, Emperor Shao Hao managed to purify all his body and soul. But time was ticking; the War of Ancient was drawing to a close. The foretold day approached. Yet a problem appeared. Should he save Pandaria, Mantid, the archenemy of Pandaren would be saved together. Pandaren and the Mantid warred now and then. Their hatred had lasted for millennia. The decision that Shao Hao was about to make suddenly became heavier.

So the Monkey King spoke.

He counseled with one fact. Every hundred years the Mantid would attack the Great Wall of Pandaren, this cycle was a part of Pandaria. There would be no fish if the water is too clear. Even the conflicts between the two races could not be mitigated; they certainly could not be separated. Pandaren could not be saved without the salvation of the Mantid. The Mantid defined Pandaren as Pandaren defined them. So Emperor Shao Hao understood the deeper meaning of the Jade Serpent.

He knew what he had to do, and the call was made.

The Mists of Pandaria

The Great Sundering began. The first irreversible destruction of Azeroth befell. In the eyes of all his beloved people, Emperor Shao Hao raised his staff, initiating the ritual.

The people of Pandaria looked at their beloved Emperor with full gratitude. While he was chanting, the whole of Pandaria separated from the main land of Kalimdor. It drifted off further to the sea. Silent and solitary.

Quietly, something began to condense in the air. It was the mists! The ocean around Pandaria swelled and shaped into a ring of impenetrable mists, shrouding Pandaria within. From then on, Pandaria was hidden in the Mists; the rest of the world could not bother it any more.

And an incident happened.

When all Pandaren were cheering, celebrating, and their eyes on the emperor, Emperor Shao Hao suddenly struck the ground with a clack.

The emperor who spent his whole life on saving his people fell.

Slowly, the body of the emperor seemed to dissipate. He became a mist, together with all the mists around Pandaria, the land that carried the people he loved.

This is the story of the last emperor of Pandaria. His legend ended there, ten thousand years ago.

He no longer exists by now, yet he is everywhere. He is a part of Pandaria. He is Pandaria. He keeps watching and protecting the people and the land that he always loves.

"Since the death of the Great Goblin, the goblins' hatred of dwarves had been rekindled to fury."The HobbitThe Clouds Burst

The Battle of the Five Armies was a battle waged between the Goblins and the Wargs against Men of Dale, Elves,Dwarves and Eagles on and near the Lonely Mountain

The three commanders agreed that the Goblins and Wargs were the enemies of all, and previous grievances between them were put on hold in face of the greater threat. They arranged their forces on the two spurs of the Mountain that lined the valley leading to the now-sealed off great gate; the only entrance to the Mountain. The Dwarves and Lake-men formed up on one spur and the Elves on the other, while a light rear-guard lined across the mouth of the valley to lure the Goblins between the two, and thus destroy them. Bilbo Baggins, while invisible due to the Ring, tried to sit out the battle on the spur held by the Elves.

Soon the Goblins and Wargs arrived (and now four armies were on the field), and at first the plan worked: they were lured into the choke point and took heavy losses. However, due to their superior numbers, the allied Free Folk did not hold the advantage long. The second wave was even worse than the first, and now many Goblins scaled the mountain from the opposite side, and began to attack the arrayed forces from above and behind, as the main wave pressed forward. The battle raged across the Mountain, and then a great noise was heard: Thorin and his twelve Dwarf companions inside the mountain had thrown down the stone wall they had erected across the mouth of the gates, killing many Goblins. Thorin and Company then charged out to join the battle, covered from head to toe in the finest armour and weapons contained in the treasure hoard of Erebor. Thorin advanced through the Goblins ranks all the way up to the gigantic Goblins that formed the Bodyguard of Bolg, whom he could not get past. The battle degenerated into a chaotic close quarters melee, no quarter asked or given.

As the battle was turning fully against the Free Folk, a number of Giant Eagles of the Misty Mountains arrived (the fifth army), led by GwaihirLord of the Eagles. Bilbo was the first to spot their entrance on the scene and began shouting that "the Eagles are coming!", a shout that was then continued among the other troops of the Free Folk. At this point Bilbo was knocked in the head by a large stone thrown by a Goblin from above on the Mountain, and he passed out. With the support of the Giant Eagles, the battle turned back against the Goblins. Then Beorn himself arrived at the battle, apparently having heard news that a large army of Goblins was on the move. This time he did not appear in his former shape of a giant Man, but had changed his skin to that of a gigantic bear. Beorn drove through the Goblin lines, but paused to carry the wounded Thorin out of the battle. Beorn then returned to the battle with even greater wrath and smashed the ranks of the Bodyguard of Bolg, ultimately killing Bolg himself. The Goblins eventually panicked and scattered, to be picked off by hunting forces from the victors later; many of the Goblin survivors died in the Mirkwood forest.
