Timeline Event

Shagrat escapes the Tower of Cirith Ungol with tokens of Frodo's capture

Event Type: Military/Strategic

Age: 3rd Age - Ring War

Date: March 14, 3019


Shagrat could not both fight and keep hold of his treasure. He... leapt aside, and as Sam sprang at him..., he thrust [the heavy bundle] hard into his enemy's face. Sam staggered, and... Shagrat darted past and down the stairs....

Away below Shagrat went leaping down the stairs and out over the court and through the gate, bearing his precious burden. If Sam could have seen him and known the grief that his escape would bring, he might have quailed.
