'A palpable hit, and another! I find no joy in battle, my friend, but I find that I am uncommonly good at it, truly! I will use that skill to defend the men at my side, until my last breath is stolen by some lucky stroke!

'Many archers of Gondor and Rohan have already fallen to the arrows of Mordor; some of their quivers remain full, or nearly so. Go to the archery lines and look for our fallen unfortunates. If you return to me with a number of their full quivers I will be able to maintain my current pace, and continue to support Gimli with my bow.

'We are hard-pressed and can spare no man, but someone must go to the western hill and keep it from being taken! Can you go to the aid of Imrahil with haste enough, <name>? I know you can! Fight your way to the slope of the western hill, and help the Prince of Dol Amroth throw back the tide!'
