"The world has changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost. For none now live who remember it. Darkness crept back into the forests of the world. Rumour grew of a shadow in the East, whispers of a nameless fear and the ring of power perceived its time had now come.
Glorfindel appears on a hill outside of Annuminas with the banner of Rivendell and behind him marches 3000 Elven warriors, the last elven army to ever rise in the North again.
These elves have postponed the journey across the sea to once again stand side by side with the Men of Numenor against the Cold forces that has risen in the north.
They march into the city and set up camp in the city square. Only Glorfindel proceeds into the upper Castle to meet with the commander of the Dunedain in the north.
