Hall of Fire topic this Saturday. ROTK Book V Ch V: The Ride of the Rohirrim Can't Post

This weekend, Hall of Fire resumes chapter discussions as we examine the events of The Ride of the Rohirrim.

The Rohirrim -- secretly accompanied by a very unwanted-feeling Merry -- discover the road to Minas Tirith is barred by a strong force of orcs.

'Let Ghan-buri-Ghan finish!" said the Wild Man. "More than one road he knows. He will lead you by road where no pits are, no gorgun walk, only Wild Men and beasts. Many paths were made when Stonehouse-folk were stronger. They carved hills as hunters carve beast-flesh."

The Return of the King: Book V, Chapter V - The Ride of the Rohirrim

However, in an odd echo of Merry's own earlier change in fortune, another way opens when the Woses of the Druadan Forest approach the host of Rohan with news of the city.

Theoden accepts their help and the Rohirrim press towards Minas Tirith through a long-forgotten road that Gondor carved through a narrow valley in ages past. But will they arrive in time to save the city? And who are the mysterious, solitary denizens of the Druadan Forest?

Join us this Saturday at 6pm ET (please note the time change in the USA because of Daylight Saving!) in the Hall of Fire for what's sure to be a lively discussion!

Upcoming discussions:

March 22: Denethor and Theoden. A study in contrasts.
March 29: ROTK Book 5 Chapter 6: The Pyre of Denethor
