...correct me if I'm wrong [In reply to] Can't Post

In the book the "Grey Company" of the North (Rangers) were the elite crack battalion of Dunedain. They were veterans of many wars and champions for light. Though they "might" have FEAR they could also be COURAGEOUS in the face of it. Remember that RANGERS in Tolkien world is an honor and title. They were more than branch of warriors for the wilderness (a brotherhood of war, so to speak). If Aragorn could take on the "Lord of the Nazgul" in face to face combat, who says that a few of the other of the "Grey Company" could as well.
Another point was that Dunedain were a blessed race of men that had strong minds and wills... They also gained / grew in courage as they aged (could be a long time).

Also to note that not all the Nazgul were natives to the West (Arnor or Gondor region). Some where agents of Sauron from FAR COUNTRIES! Remember that Sauron gave the rings to Lords and Kings of men from around the world.
Nazguls of Note: Witch King of Angmar (Numenorean); Khamul the Easterling,...
The other seven are given honorific titles emphasising aspects of how they are used in the game: The Dark Marshal, The Shadow Lord, The Undying, The Tainted, The Betrayer, The Knight of Umbar and The Dwimmerlaik.
