'I spoke with the Halflings for a time, and they asked much about me and my brethren...'
Frodo Bagginssays, What are your names, and where are you from?
Mablung says, I am Mablung, and my companion is Damrod. We are Rangers of Ithilien.
Mablung says, We are descended from a long line of folk who called these woods home, and Steward Denethor has charged us with its protection.
Mablung says, We seldom roam this far within, but today we come to ambush the evil Men from Harad.
Damrod says, Curse the Haradrim! They are under the sway of the Enemy. Alas, I fear that Gondor will fall.
Damrod says, His strength and malice have grown great indeed, and there is little hope for Minas Tirith.
Mablung says, But we do not sit idle. The Southrons march brazenly and heedlessly upon our own roads to swell the hosts of Mordor.
Mablung says, They shall not pass unchallenged...not while Faramir leads our host.
Mablung says, His life seems charmed, as if fate spares him for some greater end.

'A great trumpet sounded as a Mûmak rushed forth, and in madness it slew all caught in its path...'
Damrod says, Mûmak! Mûmak! May the Valar save us and turn his path!
Samwise Gamgee says, An Oliphaunt! So they exist, and I have gotten to see one. What a tale!
Samwise Gamgee says, Well, no one shall believe me if I tell them.
Samwise Gamgee says, Phew. If that’s all over and done, I think I’ll have a sleep.
Mablung says, Sleep while you are able.
Mablung says, If the Captain returns, he will want to depart swiftly. The Enemy will pursue us when the news reaches him.
Samwise Gamgee says, Go quietly when you leave! No need to disturb me.

'I remained with the Halflings as they slept and awaited my Captain's return.'
