The Quest of the Ringbear: Shorts cuts make for long delays   Leave a comment

Once again our brave hobbits are about. They enter the woods unaware they are being hunted by the Ringwraiths. Fortunately the great elven hero Gildor Inglorion is out patrolling the woods at the same time.

Gildor decides to meet the Ringwraith head on. A blood curdling cry alerts the other two as Gildor charges the first. Sam has also split off looking for trouble and watches in fascination as the elf charges the dread foe. Meanwhile Frodo and Pippin run for the exit.

Gildor resists the Ringwraith’s Transfix and charges again and again despite the Cry of the Nazgul. Another Nazgul spots the two fleeing hobbits and hurls a black dart at Pippin but misses. Frodo was just obscured enough by a tree to be invisible.

Gildor defeats the Nazgul who dissipates through lack of will and attacks the second. It attempts to Transfix Frodo but he resists and then Sam hurls himself at it. He takes a wound but has kept it delayed long enough for Frodo the Ringbearer to escape. Gildor attacks it and it dissipates having spent its power on dark spells.

One last Ringwraith chases futilely after the hobbits but Gildor blocks the way in the dying light.

Another victory for Good!
