The mayor and his council organized a meeting two days after the battle to make plans to ensure this would never happen again. The city of Vaalnor was surrounded by huge cliffs. A plan was designed to carve a fortress out of one part of those cliffs. After 12 years of intense building the fortress was finally completed. It had cost huge amounts of human lives but finally Vaalnor could be rest assured that they would never again be overtaken by force. A professional army was organized and stationed all over Vaalnor, including an immense portion in the cliffside fortress.
