'Between Ramdal and Gelion there stood a single hill of great extent and gentle slopes, but seeming mightier than it was, for it stood alone; and that hill was named Amon Ereb. Upon Amon Ereb died Denethor, lord of the Nandor that dwelt in Ossiriand, who marched to the aid of Thingol against Morgoth in those days when the Orcs first came down in force, and broke the starlit peace of Beleriand; and upon that hill Maedhros dwelt after the great defeat.'

JRR Tolkien: The Silmarillion: Chapter 14: Of Beleriand and its Realms

Hello,

I am a big fan of the role-playing game Middle Earth Role Playing (MERP), game that no longer exists for a long time, and I design adventures/scenarios written by MERP fans, for the MERP fan community.

I really like your creations, and I wanted to know if I could use some of your images to insert them in a FAN-MERP booklet, knowing that it is not at all for commercial purposes, but only for fans of this old role-playing game.

As I said : "made by fans for fans" 🙂

Naturally, I quote the author's name of the images in the booklet, in credits part.

And I add these informations : "This module is the intellectual property of the authors, art creators and designers. It is intended for private, non-profit use. No portion of this work or material derived from it may be used for commercial purposes without the permission of its authors, creators and designers."

Thank you so much!

Sincerely

The last Feanorian stronghold in Beleriad, from there they went to Doriath and Sirion. 

It looks very lonely, and unfriendly here. 

In some maps it looks like Amon Ereb survived the War of Wrath. And was on the western shores of Forlindon. 

I'm writing a fanfiction in Polish called "The Last Kinslayers" that's "Ostatni bratobójcy". I started that as a parody of Tauriel/Kili from the movies. That "couple" survived the Battle of the five armies, but their so called romance uproared the whole Elvendom. And who is better to end that perversion than the last kinslayers who dweal somewhere in Forlindon? And Amon Ereb is home of the last feanorian supporters who still live in Middle Earth.

Great landscape. The dark thunderclouds set an intense mood, a sense of foreboding. Very symbolic for this refuge of doomed people, facing a long inevitable defeat.

Very good to see you back my friend, hope you're doing well - it's been a while. And glad to see you like this piece, always a pleasure to depict something that others haven't before :D

reminds me of the crusades

Not a bad comparison to make, considering the less than savoury deeds committed by these folk ...

A wonderful piece. The colors are quite appropriate for the piece.
