There is little time to mourn those lost at Pelennor, but Aragorn knows that some time must be spared to remember the fallen.

Objective 1

'This is never easy, <name>, but it is important. If we are to go on, we must take some time to remember those we have lost. These men died for Gondor, for Rohan, for every land in which dwell the good-hearted. We have constructed a great pyre, and by its light we will remember our fallen.
'Will you accept the task, and the honour, of lighting the pyre? Once it is burning we will begin.'

Objective 4

  • Listen to the record of the fallen

Listen to Éomer as he speaks the names of the fallen.

Éomer says,
"So many good men gave their lives to protect our lands from the Enemy."
"We are gathered here to remember those who gave their lives for us."
"Hear their names, and do not forget them!"
"Guthláf, banner-bearer of Théoden. Lift your banner high, loyal one!"
"Thane Harding, Aldor of the Eastemnet and Reeve of the Wold. Your son will be proud to hear of your courage."
"Elfmar of Faldham. You were an inspiration to every man of the Elfward, and to all who knew you."
Elfhelm says,
"My son."
Éomer says,
"Dúnhere, Lord of Dunharrow. We fought side by side at Riders' Stand, my friend, and I weep that it was to be the last time."
"Herubrand, Reeve of the Stonedeans. You put your faith in the words of Hildegard, and met your end with satisfaction."
Nothmar says,
"You fought valiantly until your very last breath."
Éomer says,
"Grimbold of Grimslade, doughty soldier and veteran of many battles. Farewell, my friend."
"Thane Torferth of Torsbury. Even so young, you had already accomplished much for Rohan and for Théoden."
"Fastred, Reeve of the Sutcrofts. We did not agree on all matters, my friend, but we shared a love of Rohan, and she feels your loss."
"Herefara, stalwart defender of the Stonedeans. The Helmingas know of your glory."
Nothmar says,
"The battle seemed endless, but still you fought on."
Éomer says,
"Théoden King, Lord of the Mark. Rohan has been restored to glory by your deeds! Farewell, uncle."
"We must not forget any of the other good men of Rohan who fell upon Pelennor."
Prince Imrahil says,
"Men from every reach of Gondor fought to defend their homes."
"Duilin and Derufin of the Blackroot Vale. They did not fear to face any foe, despite the danger."
Duinhir says,
"Alas, my boys."
Prince Imrahil says,
"Turgon, Captain of the South-gate. Long did you stand against the Orcs, even when all seemed lost."
Ingold says,
"A good man."
Prince Imrahil says,
"Hirluin, Lord of the Green Hills. You spoke seldom, but when you did you spoke with wisdom. We could use such words now!"
"Forlong the Bold, Lord of Lossarnach. Many were your deeds, my friend! May you rest easy."
"Forget not the many others who fought and fell in service of Gondor."
Aragorn says,
"My kinsmen came out of the North to the Pelennor in my service. Many will not see their homes again."
"Idhrenfair, you were no stranger to the dread of battle. I thank you."
"Halros, how long has it been since we shared a campfire on the Greenfields? Too long, my friend. You will be in my thoughts."
"Naeglanc, many were the foes you slew in my defence. I will not forget you. You have my thanks."
"Rest easy, Celairant. You lived up to your promise, and were a true Ranger of the North. I thank you."
"Nestadron, Ranger of the Trackless Wastes. Your wandering days are done, my friend."
"Mandan, few only could share your knowledge of plants and herbs. I will treasure your lessons on the subject."
"Golodir, the days of your sorrow are ended. Join your daughter in peace, and know that I will not forget your service."
"Halbarad, dearest and most true of friends. My heart was lifted to see you again on the road to Isengard, mere days ago."
"For you to fall when the aim for which you fought is so near... it is a grievous hurt. I have lost my right arm."
"Farewell, my friend."
