Even as he plummeted from the Bridge of Khazad-dûm, Gandalf the Grey hurled himself at his foe, the fiery Balrog. Plunging for an eternity to the uttermost foundations of the world, they hewed at one another; the demon's fire engulfing the Wizard while his silver blade rang again and again.
Through darkness they battled and fell, plunging into black water before emerging to fight on, ascending the Endless Stair to the very peak of Zirak-zigil, where, beneath the open heavens, fire would meet lightning and righteous light cleave shadow for the last time.
Seen from afar, the Duel of the Peak crackles and burns like a violent storm; fearsome elemental beings locked in a timeless struggle of life and death, order against chaos, hope against fear.
