Event Type: Genealogical
Age: 3rd Age - Ring War
Date: January 25, 3019
The final event in the Battles of the Fellowship at Moria; see that entry for an overview:
'There upon Celebdil was a... narrow space, a dizzy eyrie above the mists of the world.... Out [the Balrog] sprang, and... burst into new flame. There was none to see, or perhaps in after ages songs would still be sung of the Battle of the Peak.... I threw down my enemy.... Then darkness took me; and I strayed out of thought and time, and I wandered far on roads that I will not tell.'
