A smaller moon covered in red rock and regions of paler sand. This moon is also known as Mórlach by the elves. It is said that Darkshoal was extracted from the gaping hole left by the removal of the Valar's** homeland in order to trap Daedelhach** within the moon.
Unlike Brightpool** which always follows behind Elsemar**, Darkshoal orbits Elsemar** after the same fashion as Earth's Moon. Therefore, whereas Brightpool at all times appears as a waxing gibbous moon, Darkshoal's 28-day orbit causes it to rotate thru phases like normal.
