The hosts of Valinor marched out to wage war for the sake of the Elves. The world trembled during this War of Powers and the face of the earth was changed as the Siege of Utumno dragged on. The Elves were frightened by the furious effects of this conflict. Eventually the Valar were victorious and stormed the dark and icy stronghold. Tulkas the Steadfast captured Melkor and bound him with the great chain Angainor which Aulë had forged. The Dark Ainur was taken to Valinor for trial before Manwë Súlimo, king of the Valar. Whilst Utumno was utterly eradicated, Angband was not entirely cleansed. Because of this, some of Angband's well-hidden caves and pits escaped detection, and in these dark places of the world the evil creatures of Melkor survived.
