Default Out of the East

Out of the East, his father had come, out of Rhun. From the one province that had carefully and quietly refused to send soldiers to serve Sauron. Along the southwestern shores of the sea of Rhun, they were also the first province to resume the trade with Laketown, Dale and Erebor and the Iron Hills. There was, by some tales, a little blood of eastern elves, or Avari as the Gondorians called them, said to be in the veins of the people of the Dhun province.

South and west his father had come, intending to travel to Gondor, but coming instead upon the land of Nurn, where the slaves, after the fall of Sauron, had risen against the orcs and now dwelt freely, farming to feed themselves and their families rather than the armies of their captor.

There in Nurn he had stayed a while before continuing towards Gorgoth, skirting the southern arm of the Ash Mountains. It was there in Gorgoth, which was already then less dark and barren than it had been, that being some ten years or so since the fall of Sauron and Barad Dur, there it was that his father had found the stone.
He had known it was something important by its strange smooth appearance, and had the warning from that Ulmo being not been enough, he would have guessed to be careful about touching it directly or looking too closely by the way the goblin skeleton was holding it and gazing at it.
This Ulmo had met him while he was in Nurn, on the shore of one of the main rivers that fed the Sea of Nurnen. It was on his instructions that he had gone to Gorgoth. He had said to look for a stone-like artifact, with warnings about looking too closely At it let alone touching it.
“Carry it in a cloth.” Ulmo had said.
Then he had had to take it to Gondor, from whom it had been stolen. If he could take it straight to the citadel in Minas Arnor, it would be best if the king was the first to see it.
“But if you pass through Ithilien, the Steward may perhaps have the strength and authority to use it, but the king would be better. The Steward definitely has the integrity to see it without using it if he does not trust his strength.”

Hmmm...so, my memory is failing me...this isn't about Tuor, is it?

No. A new character. Or 2.

And so he had carried it, covered of course, through the broken Isenmouthe, across Udun and through the ruins of the Black Gate. Orcs still dwelt in Gorgoth and Udun, but they were few and did not trouble an armed man in garb of Rhun. A few wild beasts however had thought he might make a meal, so he had made them his.
Leaving the broken Teeth of Mordor, he had gone west, away from Dagorlad and towards the northern reaches of Ithilien.
He had then headed south through Northern Ithilien, not turning aside at Henneth Annun to cross at Cair Andros, but continuing to the crossroads, for that was the gentlest road and Udun and Gorgoth had been dark and wearisome places to traverse. Besides which, the folk he met in Ithilien said that Osgiliath, while still under repair, was a sight worth seeing.
They also told him, once he had introduced himself and given his promise to cause no trouble, that while visitors were welcome in Ithilien and permitted to hunt to feed themselves, he was to take only what he needed and no more.
