Sam finds water along the Road to Barad-dûr
Event Type: General
Age: 3rd Age - Ring War
Date: March 21, 3019
An event in the prelude to the Destruction of the One Ring; see that entry for an overview:
All [their water] would long ago have been spent, if they had not dared to follow the orc-road. For at long intervals on that highway cisterns had been built for the use of troops sent in haste through the waterless regions. In one Sam had found some water left, stale, muddied by the orcs, but still sufficient for their desperate case.... There was no hope of any more.
