The Best Laid Plans.....  by DADGAD

Dead Unlucky

Dromond Serpentís Fang, near the mouth of the river Anduin, March 8 3019

Whatís that, Scythax? Not still going on about ill-luck and fate? Look, just because you couldnít beat Gondor in your day doesnít mean thereís a curse or anything. Of course Iíve heard of your Thorongil. But that was 40 years ago. And no-oneís heard of him since have they?

Heíll be long dead by now, or at least in his dotage. Whatís he going to do, eh? Suddenly reappear? Will he attack us with his walking sticks? Or come back from the dead? No, I know, heíll bring a whole army of ghosts down on us!

Just get on with it, you stupid old man. Do as youíre told, if you donít want to end up dead sooner rather than later. Steer us to the shore and weíll attack.
