"Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?" "A man may do
both," said Aragorn. "For not we but those who come after will make the legends
of our time."
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers
"The outnumbered attackers strove to cross the stream and gain a foothold on the far shore. Their enemies, both on the shore and inside the fort lashed together from fallen trees, fought back ferociously, with sword, spear, and bow.
One attacker, shot through the neck with an arrow, fell screaming and was carried off by the water. Determined to make the enemy pay for his death, his comrades redoubled their efforts. Blocking a sword and a spear simultaneously with his shield, one attacker drove the enemy back and finally pulled himself to the top of creek’s steep bank.
Without sparing a look back, he shouted over his shoulder, "We take them NOW!" to the rest of his force.
It didn’t matter that they were outnumbered, or that water, muddy banks, and strong walls stood in their way. They charged.
THAT’S Dagorhir. A game, a sport, a martial art…a chance to live an adventure."
-David (Graymael) Vierling
