On your marks, get set, GO!
Today, now that a few weeks have passed since the competition opened, I am pleased to share my selection with you.
It was with great pleasure that I discovered each of your 20+ creations to be more original than the last! Right now, I want to congratulate everybody. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us and thank you for taking the time to imagine all this. Bravo!
I, therefore, in my best conscience selected 15 creations that I most prefer. Here we go:

“The workbench of one of the greatest alchemist in Middle-earth with a very sad story:
Sálvakh was an Angmarim working in the Hall of Sinister Lore in Minas Morgul. One day he decided to run away for an unknown reason … Unfortunately in his escape he stole some books which, over the years, corrupted him in his house to the point that he stopped creating beneficial potions for favor those that cause harm.
Some say that he would be as powerful as Lhaereth the Profane (the originator of the Great Plague). Hopefully this is just a rumor …”
#9 – Lynariel
“The Witch-King seems pleased with Amarthriel’s She-Shed!! She has spent hours combining the darkest mushrooms from the deepest chambers with freshly killed turtle saliva to summon forth the fire-breathing warg hidden within the Geode of Moria.

#12 – Sotall
“In a hole in the ground, there lived… a witch! Legend has it that long ago a hobbit lass was forgotten by her neighbors. In the days of boredom that followed, she discovered an old book of spells. In the time since she has perfected the arts of levitation, making potions float across the room. She also created special long-lasting candles to light her spell-craft. She is still there to this day, waiting for someone to remember her.”

“Feathered grave robbers :D”

#15 – Vulpex
“In a hidden cave by a waterfall somewhere in Rohan, followers of the dark lord prepare to raise creature from the grave to aid them.”
