On a Field of Red
"Fight onward! The battle is not yet ended!"

Background

The forces of Mordor prepare for a final attack on the fields of the Pelennor.

Objective 1

  • Talk to Horn and fight alongside him

You have found Horn in the midst of battle, but the bloodshed is taking its toll on him.

Horn: ' <name>, I have not seen you since the morning, and I feared the worst! We have a brief reprieve for now, but it will not last long. I have seen such horrors... so many good men lost...'

Objective 2

  • Talk to Horn and fight alongside him

You have found Horn in the midst of battle, but the bloodshed is taking its toll on him.

<If you completed Halros Should Go>
Horn says, "There has been so much death today. When will it be over?'
Halros says, "I will fight until my chief tells me to stop.'
Horn says, "My own King fell on this field, and now I have another.'
Halros says, "You will fight for him, I warrant, until this land is made safe?"
Halros says, "The time for such questions is over, my new friend! Our enemies try another assault!"
<If you completed Halros Should Stay>
Horn says, "So much death... The field is tinged red with the blood of my kinsmen!"
Horn says, "So many friends dead... and for what?"
Horn says, "Glory and honour? What good do they do the dead?"
Horn says, "Théoden is king no more... how long can Éomer hope to last?"
Horn says, "Our foes return! When will there be an end to them?"

Objective 3

  • Talk to Horn on the battlefield

You have fought alongside Horn, but the horrors of battle are taxing his courage.

<If you completed Halros Should Go>
Horn: 'This young Ranger, this Halros, is able to do his duty without questioning it? Did I ever have that strength? I know that is what is expected of me, and I came here to prove it, but...
'If I was more like him, would I be able to fight on this field without regret? It weighs me down, even as I know why I must fight. But so many have died, and still the hosts of Mordor pour onto the plain! I thought I could protect Nona and our child from harm, but I see now that there is no hope of that. There are too many evils arrayed against us!'
Your limbs are held by a powerful force, and you are unable to move!
<If you completed Halros Should Stay>
Horn: 'The enemies that pour forth from Mordor will not stop until they have slain every last one of us, <name>. They will not stop even then, for there is no mercy in their hearts. They will kill even women and children, the old and the infirm.
'I do not regret my decision! I will fight to make Nona and our child safe, and if I never see them again I will go to my grave knowing that I did what I could. I do not fight for glory or for honour. I fight for time, not for myself but for those I love!'
Your limbs are held by a powerful force, and you are unable to move!

Objective 4

  • Stand against the forces of evil

You have become held by a powerful and evil force, unable to move!

Crúmgam says, "Did you think the tide had turned?"
Crúmgam says, "The might of Mordor was not thwarted. It was... merely redirected."
Crúmgam says, "Kill them all."
Crúmgam says, "Ah, you show great strength of will. But it will not matter!"
You break free of Crúmgam's evil!

Objective 5

Crúmgam must pay for his crimes against the Free Peoples of Middle-earth.

Crúmgam says, "My death means nothing!"
Crúmgam says, "I have inflicted what hurts I could, and that fills me with gladness as I die!"
Crúmgam says, "Mordor and Sauron!"
Crúmgam has been defeated!
'Calenglad says, "<name>!"

Objective 6

Crúmgam has been defeated, but not without sacrifice.

<If you completed Halros Should Go>
Horn: 'I could not move, <name>'... it was fell sorcery, and... I was powerless...'
Horn's breath comes raggedly, and there are tears in his eyes.
'Halros sprang to my defence, and took the blows that were meant for me. He died in my place... there was nothing I could do...'
Calenglad: 'There is no time to mourn, <name>! We have to find Aragorn, for I fear he has gotten too far ahead and may become surrounded by his foes if we do not aid him!'
<If you completed Halros Should Stay>
Calenglad: 'There is no time to mourn, <name>! We have to find Aragorn, for I fear he has gotten too far ahead and may become surrounded by his foes if we do not aid him!'

Objective 7

  • Follow Calenglad

Crúmgam has been defeated, but not without sacrifice.

You have found Aragorn!

Objective 8

You have found Aragorn and the Grey Company on the battlefield as they prepare to confront Gothmog.#

Gothmog says, "You are a long way from home, Dúnadan."
Gothmog says, "Who are these others, and why have you come?"
Aragorn says, "These are my friends and my kin."
Aragorn says, "We have come by dangerous roads to put an end to you and your evil."
Gothmog says, "I am afraid you have wasted a journey, for I cannot be ended!"
Gothmog says, "My will is tethered to the pitiful Ranger Golodir, and to this world."
Gothmog says, "While he lives, I cannot be slain!"
Gothmog says, "What is this?"
Halbarad says, "You are a fool, no matter what name you wear."
Gothmog says, "Explain yourself before you die!"
Corunir says, "Golodir is slain! He came south to the aid of Aragorn, our chief!"
Corunir says, "He felled the Olog Thrúgrath, and died."
Gothmog says, "No... he suffered such grief... how can it be?"
Gothmog says, "How did he muster the strength to come forth?"
Gothmog says, "Stop... laughing...!"
Aragorn says, "Servant of Sauron! Hearken to me!"
Aragorn says, "There is no future for you, or for your master!
Aragorn says, "You know my name, and the name of my mighty ancestor."
Aragorn says, "So too do I know yours."
Aragorn says, "But hearken to me, Gothmog, and Mordirith, and Eärnur!"
Aragorn says, "I have come out of the years of darkness to defy your master and all for which he stands!"
Aragorn says, "Sauron will fall, and Mordor will perish, and you will know the darkness of true oblivion."
Aragorn says, "The dawning of a new age is upon us! Begone, for there is no place in it for such as you!"
Aragorn says, "Begone!"
Gothmog says, "Hsssss!"
Aragorn says, "Halbarad... my loyal friend..."
Halbarad says, "I am glad I was able... to see.."

Objective 9

  • Talk to Aragorn

Gothmog has fled the battlefield, leaving Aragorn and the Grey Company to mourn the slain he leaves behind.

Aragorn: 'There is too much sorrow on this field, <name>. Gothmog flees, and my anger will follow him, but this is not the day he will pay for the hurts he has caused us.'
Aragorn: 'Let us make for the city, <name>. I have lost too many friends today.'
