1. The Path Untaken - by Dwimordene
Dorothil walks the fading trail and his dreams walk with him, nightmare memories of changling wolves, and one more terrible than they...
A twig snaps. The patrol halts, stands stricken as into every mind come images unbidden—
—Orcs innumerable—mountains belching fire—living shadow—
Dol Guldur is years deep in darkness. Dorothil turns away, and to breathless companions says: "We will go no further. Gollum is gone. Today, the tower has won."
