This weekend, Hall of Fire rejoins the action of the Return of the King. Events are moving quickly – Sauron is on the move, and the muster of Rohan must occur soon if Minas Tirith is to stand.

But Aragorn fears it cannot come quickly enough. Using the Palantir, he dares a perilous mental battle with Sauron to gain vital intelligence that sends the Dunedain of the north racing toward Pelargir.

RoTK Book V, Ch 2: The Passing of the Grey Company

Leaving Merry with Theoden, Aragorn decides the company must travel the Paths of the Dead – a name as ill-omened as Cirith Ungol. Join us this weekend as we explore this extraordinary chapter.

Upcoming Discussions:

March 8-9: Isildur
March 15-16: RoTK B 5, Ch 3: The Muster of Rohan.
