Sarn Ford [In reply to] Can't Post

Even if (as Squire pointed out above) Aragorn wasn't himself at Sarn Ford when the Rangers encountered the Riders, he would have known the Rangers who were there, and would have picked up enough vibes afterwards to realise that these battle-hardened warriors had completely freaked out. And maybe, as you suggest, it had gone beyond that in one or more cases - either to a death from fright or to the Middle-Earth equivalent of continuing shell-shock. Plus of course Aragorn was familiar with the lore of Rivendell and of Gandalf, which gave him some insight into what the Riders had become (effectively, will-less but very potent extensions of Sauron's own malice) and what they would be capable of.
