Event Type: Military/Strategic
Age: 3rd Age - Ring War
Date: March 12, 3019
'[To] be sure Ents have played their part. And not only in dealing with... that accursed tree-slayer.... For there was a great inrush of... those vermin of Orcs; and they came over the River and down from the North....
'And these same foul creatures were more than surprised to meet us out on the Wold, for they had not heard of us before; though that might be said also of better folk. And not many will remember us, for not many escaped us alive, and the River had most of those. But it was well for you, for if they had not met us, then the king of the grassland would not have ridden far, and if he had there would have been no home to return to.'
