Heraldry of Torgovann

Torgovann, the Forge of Starlight, is a High Realm of Athel Loren, ruled by Lord Daith. The Forge of Starlight is the domain of makers and craftsmen, of the artisans and smiths who create all Athel Loren's many tools of wonder and war. In the very centre of the realm lies Vaul's Anvil, the shrine to the Maker God, and every night, the beech trees of that glade bask in the light and warmth of the mighty forge-temple. Inevitably, the rippling heat from Vaul's Anvil draws forest spirits from the nearby groves, who watch the striking of hammer upon anvil with childlike fascination. Such creatures love the flame for the warmth and life it gives, but are also wary of it for the harm it can wreak if left untended.[1a]

Lord Daith, most celebrated of all the Elven smiths, is the master of this realm, and has been for as long as any Elf can recall. Indeed, some whisper that Daith is older even than Ariel and Orion, that he fled Ulthuan with the first colonists; others claim that it was he who forged Aenarion's Dragon Armour. For such to be true, Daith would have to be many thousands of years old — something that would be considered near-impossible in any realm other than timeless Athel Loren. If Daith is truly as old as the rumours tell, he bears little of his great age, for his aspect is that of an Elf in his middle-years. He is blind, and has been so for as long as any have known him, but none of this slows his craftsmanship at the forge. He performs his works by touch, and by the way hot metal changes the taste of the air. Nor does his lack of vision still his tongue, which is just as fiery as his forge.[1a]
