Objective 14

You are held in the grip of a dream.

Familiar faces have emerged from the fog of sleep.

Sam: 'What is it, Mister Frodo? You do not look well, and have not since we came back to the shore. That shape won't be coming back, I wager. Legolas saw to that with his arrows, he did, and a good thing it was, too!
'You clutched your shoulder when it appeared, and looked to be in a great deal of pain. Are you sure you are feeling all right?'
Sam says, "I am worried about you, Mister Frodo!"

Objective 15

  • You are held in the grip of a dream. Listen to Frodo Baggins on the banks of the Anduin

You are held in the grip of a dream.

Familiar faces have emerged from the fog of sleep.

Frodo: 'I am fine, Sam. I felt a chill in my heart, and the pain in my shoulder reminded me of… well, it is gone now, nothing more than a passing memory. I think we will be fine for a while. The Orcs that attacked from the other shore were dismayed by the fall of… whatever that shadow may have been.
'And yet, every paddle-stroke on the River brings us further south, and as it does my heart sinks southward still. Tonight the bow of Legolas saved us, but for how long will our fortune hold?
'I am sorry, Sam. I do not want you to worry.'
Frodo says, "I will be fine, Sam. Whatever that creature was, it is gone now."

Objective 16

You are held in the grip of a dream.

Familiar faces have emerged from the fog of sleep.

Merry: 'How are you feeling, Pip? When that winged shadow came out from behind that could, I thought we were done for. I was wrong, though! Thank goodness for the quick wits and quicker bow-strings of Elves!
'I don't want to think too much about that dark shape, at least, not tonight! Maybe the memory will be less frightening in the daylight tomorrow.'
Pippin: 'Gimli says that shape we saw in the sky was a Balrog. You don't think it was, do you, Merry? I didn't get a good look at it, but that's what Gimli said. A Balrog, he said. You don't think it was, do you?'

Objective 17

  • You are held in the grip of a dream. Listen to Aragorn on the banks of the Anduin
  • Listen to Legolas on the banks of the Anduin
  • Listen to Gimli on the banks of the Anduin

You are held in the grip of a dream.

Familiar faces have emerged from the fog of sleep.

Aragorn: 'In your hands, the bow of Galadriel is deadly indeed, Legolas! The entire company is in your debt. Did you mark how the shadow's fall dismayed the Orcs on the far shore? I feel they will not attack us again tonight.
'My guess is that our clever waterman set them on us. We have evaded his tricks thus far. May our fortune hold!'
Legolas: 'Our journey leads us from danger into greater danger! To have lost Gandalf, to be pursued by Orcs from behind and to paddle into them ahead… what awaits us further down the river?
'And Gollum is still behind us. If he were not so cunning, perhaps I could catch him with an arrow, but it seems he has learned something about staying alive.'
Gimli: 'It was a good shot, Legolas, I will give you that. But up close? Nothing can best an axe in the hand of one of Durin's Folk. If that winged shadow had just come a hair lower I would have proven it, and you would have saved an arrow!
'Your gift has proved useful, I grant that, but when I can make use of the Lady Galadriel's gift to me you will see a thing of wonder and beauty!'

Boromir says, "I will take the first watch. The little folk need their rest."
Boromir says, "They have been through much tonight."

The creature Gollum stares past you with its eyes like lamps, but even in the grip of the dream you feel a chill at the thought you might be seen.
'Are you a nice fishy? Tasty? We need to keep out strength, gollum, gollum. We can't take the precious if our handses are too weak to wrap and squeeze… we needs our strength.
