Chronicle Summary

Chronicle Content

The tales of  Mearhe, Wulf and her son Léofara shall forever stay with me. They will be told by a fire on a cold winter night in Rohan, they shall be sang in songs by a wandering skald in the great halls of Aldburg, or maybe they will be lost and forgotten as they should, because after all Mearhe was just a simple woman not worthy of tales. It has been a great pleasure to 'be' Mearhe even though her stories has brought almost as much sorrow as they did joy. To you reader, Thank You for  reading her stories.

 

A special thanks to 'Wulf' for standing by me. I own to him a great debt of gratitude. 

Iċ lufie þē !

May  Mahal  bless you and keep you always. Wes þū hāl!


As the storm clouds of war gather.
In the growing shadow from the the East.
The Riddermark is in the hold of a wizard's malice. 
Mearhe daughter of Rohan set off on the path before her.

 In a world of men - of Kings and Lords, Marshals and Riders, Mearhe, daughter of Éodain, will fight for her place among them. 

She will not let circumstance define her, for the spirit of this woman of Rohan is strong, and her love for her land is fierce.
