Elrond and the Moon Letters  Empty Elrond and the Moon Letters

Post by bilbobaggins Thu Dec 08, 2022 4:44 pm

I will have an image or book cover created that depicts the scene where Elrond discovers and reads the Moon Letters on Thorin's map. I reread the section of the Hobbit that describes it, and Thorin, Gandalf, Elrond, and Bilbo were all there. But I must have missed the scenery where it took place (if it was offered). Also, from a quick read, I could not tell if Elrond was holding the map up to the moonlight sky or if it was on something he was reading off.

Is anyone familiar with this scene or any images that depict it?

lol, not planning on it Very Happy

In fact I might simplify it and only have the map itself with the moon letters glowing.

{{ Had to dig the book out for a double check, but its not specific about the location- all you can say for sure is it takes place in Rivendell and there is a clear light of sight to the moon.
PJ's setting was like all PJ stuff nice gone way too far. One moderate waterfall would have been nice, but no he had to make it like Niagra and have Elrond have some sort of special crystal moon letter reading table set up special Mad

If you want to keep it close to the book in tone Id make the setting fairly underwhelming, as the scene is not played for any big drama in the book. Id favour the scene either taking place on a balcony or in a hall with large open windows.}}

Great stuff, thanks for having a look. I agree with your advice. Im having trouble imagining it so it might end up a pretty simple portrayal.
