Gainesville Town

Prompt: Erebor: Refugee issues are our issues; their plight is our plight. Write a story or poem or create artwork that illustrates the situation of some displaced group in Middle-earth.


After Umbar, Belfalas's and Dol Amroth's lords debate: to Haradrim seeking shelter as ever happens after war on Harad's soil will they say yea or nay?

Then some say yea, for honor; others nay, we've no stake. Yea, for pity; nay, for peace at home. Yea they're useful. Nay they're poor.

Yea 'tis justice. Nay they're untrustworthy. Yea they suffer. Nay their suffering breeds strife among our enemies! Yea remember Amroth!

Finally, the Prince rules: yea when War outbreaks, these will flock to our banner.

'Yea, for fodder'? his son demands later. The Prince sighs.

Valar forgive me!


Builds off of Beyond the Quays of Umbar.

Gainesville Town lifted from the Indigo Girls song, Shame on you.

Remember Amroth!: Dol Amroth used to be Elven territory, so really, the entire principality of Men is an immigrant empire.
