This is a thread for linking to helpful Silmarillion-related resources. Some of them are, no doubt, more useful for the art and music teams - but we don't have those, so neh.
Tolkien Heraldry - images of all of the known heraldic symbols of Middle-earth (including several Houses of Gondolin!); apart from anything else, it's just pretty.
The Encyclopedia of Arda - my go-to site for all my 'How do you spell Eglarest?'-type questions. Not complete, but pretty good for generalities.
Ardalambion - the Tolkien language resource. This is why I know Quenya - and Sindarin, now.
The Genealogy of the Elder Days - not compiled by me, but by Philosopher at Large - her site isn't there any more. This is every elf and man who can be placed in the family trees of the Silmarillion. Very handy.
~He came never back among the people of the Elves~
Take a look at The Annals of Arda It's pretty good on basic quick data. I used it a lot in the past. Decent time line info on certain characters. I don't like how some links produce a pop up but others don't but still a good site.
