In T.A 1975 a group of hobbits departed to join the battle of fornost. tought defeted they were never seen again. But in truth they fled from battle into the misty mountains. There they found a cave and started their own town. But they quiikly became noticed by the many goblins and orcs in those mountains. So the highlings “as they called themselves” became the center of the goblins raidings. That combined with the skill to survive the misty mountains made the highlings exeptionaly skilled in battle (for hobbits). Another thing that makes these diffrent from other hobbits is that they wear shoes to withstand the mountains colds. They generaly wear warm clothes made from the pelts they gather from their hunting preys. The warm clothing and shoes quickly make place for bare feet and lighter clothes when they enter hotter area’s.
The Highling clan remained isolated from the other races and hobbit for a long time. And during to the harsh conditions they did not have much time to teach their children how to write and read. Because of that all, knowledge of their own lore disappeared after a few generations of highlings, exept for some story’s told by the elders.
The highlings choose a king or queen among theirselves by skill and knowledge. Currently Ridogo has that honour altough he’s woundet after he ascaped his prison in goblin town.
during Ridogo’s captivity Tillianna (his daughter) took it apon herself to take over his tasks to protect her clan. She changed the defensive tactic her father used for years to a more offensive ones. In the hope of finding her father she arranged raids and scouting party’s. this is when rivendel was discovered by the Highlings. Unsure of who and how these elfs are the stayed hidden for the first few months. But then Sanilla came in contact with an elf named arwen, after a 2 day talk Sanilla aranged a leeting between Lord Elrond and Tillianna…. to be continued
