Probably not The Battle under the Trees... [In reply to] Can't Post

I know they're stretching time-frames and simplifying plots, but it's unlikely this will fit into even a tweaked version of the story...

The [Battle of Mirkwood] takes place at the same time as the Battle of Pelennor Fields in RotK, and really doesn't work unless paired with the easterling attack on Dale and Erebor. Which we obviously can't have before the Bo5A is settled. Unless it is semi-omitted altogether.

It makes more sense that it's just Azog still on the hunt, which leads him and his pals to the Woodland Realm. And looking at the signs, he has completely overtaken the role of Bolg, even in Dol Guldur (Azog even comes with the D.G. Lego set), so "technically" it could count as an attack from Dol Guldur.

I have no expectation of it being ordered specifically by The Necromancer though... He has no reason to show interest in The Company.


But eh, what do I know? They beefed up Dol Guldur to the point that there is actually a battle taking place there, so it would seem pointless to have the place just sit idly by...
