Event Type: General
Age: 3rd Age - Ring War
Date: March 6, 3019
An event in the aftermath of the Parley with Saruman in Isengard; see that entry for an overview:
And hardly had [Gandalf and Pippin] reached [Edoras's] shelter when the winged shadow had passed over once again, and men wilted with fear. But Gandalf had spoken soft words to [Pippin], and he had slept in a corner..., dimly aware of comings and goings and of men talking and Gandalf giving orders.

'At dawn three days ago, lord,' [Dúnhere] said, 'Shadowfax came like a wind out of the West to Edoras, and Gandalf brought tidings of your victory to gladden our hearts. But he brought also word from you to hasten the gathering of the Riders. And then came the winged Shadow.'....
'Then it was that Gandalf counselled us not to assemble in the fields, but to meet you here in the valley under the mountains. And he bade us to kindle no more lights or fires than barest need asked. So it has been done. Gandalf spoke with great authority. We trust that it is as you would wish.'....
'It is well,' said Théoden.
