Fate of the Simarils in the 5th Age

Recommended Posts

I liked the link, particularly San Tulkas.  Although weirdly the wikipedia page for Maglor in there says he cast himself into the sea based on the Lay of Leithian but the Silmarillion doesn't say he died at all.

Why not?

It diminishes the Silmarils to mere trinkets or novelties.  This is an artifact so potent that the Valar themselves went to war over them.  That destroyed a fair portion of Middle-Earth.  That one could be recovered by happenstance is just wrong.

I can see that. I just like the idea of the Silmarils being part of the overarching theme of Middle Earth’s history that pop up from time to time. A kind of Easter egg if you will.

Again, reducing them to “easter eggs” just seems wrong to me.

That’s what Galadriel’s phial is no? Sam explicitly points this out iirc

Exactly. That’s why I thought it would be neat if they were to show up in the Hobbit as well. Although I understand where Scott is coming from.
