Voronwë, I have never started one at this site, but read all the ones you did start and I will be happy to take a whack at it. I have my LotR's book right next to me at work now.

Why don't I wait until say Thursday and then make the new thread?

If everyone is okay with that?

Cryptic, Voronwë—very cryptic. :love:

The two explanations for the Witch-King's departure aren't necessarily exclusive of each other. If he were dismayed by Frodo's resistance and also expected the wound to do him in, the logical thing would be to back off for a while to watch and wait. When his dismay wore off (and/or the fear of Sauron was put back into him) and he realized there was a real possibility that Frodo would resist the shard long enough to reach Rivendell, the plan changed.

I still like the explanation in the Russian apocrypha The Last Ringbearer. The Ring was just a trinker and the Nazgûl were sent to make it look important, to distract the powers of the West and make them fight over it. Any ill effects were psychosomatic.

The Elves were not the good guys in that version.
