Event Type: Military/Strategic

Age: 3rd Age - Ring War

Date: March 15, 3019

Description:

An event in the Battle of the Pelennor; see that entry for an overview:
... Frodo and Sam ... saw a shape, moving at a great speed out of the West, at first only a black speck ... above the mountain-tops, but growing, until it ... passed high above them. As it went it sent out a long shrill cry, the voice of a Nazgûl; but this cry no longer held any terror for them: it was a cry of woe and dismay, ill tidings for the Dark Tower. The Lord of the Ringwraiths had met his doom.

The Dark Power was deep in thought, and the Eye turned inward, pondering tidings of doubt and danger..., and for a while it gave little thought to other things; and all its great stronghold, gate on gate, and tower on tower, was wrapped in a brooding gloom.

'I'll give your name and number to the Nazgûl,' said the soldier lowering his voice to a hiss. ...

The other halted, and his voice was full of fear and rage. 'You cursed peaching sneakthief!' he yelled. ... 'Go to your filthy Shriekers, and may they freeze the flesh off you! If the enemy doesn't get them first. They've done in Number One, I've heard, and I hope it's true!'
