Parallel with Osgiliath [In reply to] Can't Post

Welcome back, Phantom!

Tolkien seemed intent on having both high capitals fall into decline (if not disrepute; I can only imagine seedy pawn shops left over and red light districts).

Either Fornost or Annuminas were referred to as Deadman's Dike in Bree, meaning no one but ghosts haunted the place, but Rangers went there. What Rangers actually did there isn't clear to me. Did they walk past abandoned buildings and feel sad and reverential? Or did they maintain little homes among the ruins? I suspect the latter. The old and sick among the Rangers had to live somewhere, so maybe they occupied a tiny space there. Mere speculation.
