Gandalf flees from Weathertop pursued by Nazgûl

Event Type: Military/Strategic

Age: 3rd Age - Ring War

Date: October 4, 3018

Description:

An event in the prelude to the Attack on the Camp at Weathertop; see that entry for an overview.
'At sunrise I escaped and fled towards the north. I could not hope to do more. It was impossible to find you, Frodo, in the wilderness, and it would have been folly to try with all the Nine at my heels. So I had to trust to Aragorn. But I hoped to draw some of them off, and yet reach Rivendell ahead of you and send out help. Four Riders did indeed follow me, but they turned back after a while and made for the Ford, it seems. That helped a little, for there were only five, not nine, when your camp was attacked.'
