Welcome to the Quenta Silmarillion, sit yourself down at a table and hear the stories of old.
The Silmarillion-Club is a group on deviantART centred around the early events from the world created by J. R. R. Tolkien: from the beginning of time up to the ending of the II Age of Sun, described in The Silmarillion, The Unfinished Tales, The Children of Húrin and The History of Middle-Earth.
This club is not associated with the Lord of the Rings movies or upcoming The Hobbit movies. We do not accept art based on the movies (movies fanart).
Deviations based on the Lord of the Rings books will not be accepted either, unless visibly relate to events or characters from The Silmarillion.
