I'm not sure how much use the dead would have been

I'm not sure how much use the dead would have been [In reply to] Can't Post

In Mordor itself or close to Mordor. The main weapons of the dead were fear and dread rather than anything physical. This is fine with a surprise attack relieving the cities on the coast of Gondor. But coming into Mordor, they would have competition in the shape of the Nazgul who also use the same weapons. And, to be honest, in a greater manner. Once the eye was aware of the dead, it could even have used them, or have counter tactics. I don't think Mordor itself would be overthrown by a few dead guys!

    I don't think he could have taken them to the Pelennor - for several reasons. Silverlode Send a private message to Silverlode Sep 6 2013, 12:10am
