Short end to the chapter today, more important for the lands that Aragorn and the Grey Company pass through, and the fear that is brought before them by the rumor of the dead marching.
-Tarlang’s Neck: Pass between the White Mountains and a southern spur. We go that way!
-Calembel: Town on the way. Mostly deserted, with that war going on and all.
-Ciril: River running down through Calembel. Did you know that there are a lot of rivers in Gondor? There are seven main ones, in fact. SEVEN. Always seven.
We didn’t hear about these lands earlier when Pippin watched men marching in. We do hear about Lamedon, which our heroes have just passed through briefly, though their men were nondescript. Presumably, Calembel has sent some folks to help in the fighting, but it doesn’t sound like a very populated area overall, so I guess they weren’t that important.
Words My Computer Didn’t Like:
You know what else isn’t that important? This page. It’s just people walking, or fast animal walking, or something like that. And the days are getting darker until the sun disappears completely. They’re getting close.
No one dies today.
“But the next day there came no dawn, and the Grey Company passed on into the darkness of the Storm of Mordor and were lost to mortal sight; but the Dead followed them.”
