Morgul shaft [In reply to] Can't Post

Specifically using 'morgul shaft' as opposed to a generic poisonous shaft is, I think, a wise idea.
(a) Your run-of-the-mill orc can come by a poisoned arrow, whereas you need to be Bolg/boss status to get a MORGUL shaft;
(b) Thranduil will know that morgul anything = dangerous dark forces;
(c) Audience fears more for Kili's life when a dark word is name-dropped (remember in AUJ the audience was told how scary a morgul blade is).
