6. Untitled - by Wolfwind

"Eärnil I [] laid siege by sea and land to Umbar <http://www.henneth-annun.net/members/resources/places_view.cfm?plid=234>,
and took it [] But Eärnil did not long survive his triumph. He was lost with many ships and men in a great storm off Umbar. "
*The Return of the King*, LoTR Appendix A, *Annals of the Kings and Rulers:
Gondor and the Heirs of Anárion*




Seventeen ships; all they had managed to salvage of the glory of Umbar.  He spat.  The enemy had left them little enough, but it would do.

The ship groaned under the fury of the storm; he ignored the crew's frantic work, turning his glass back to the distant ships.

"This is madness!"  His brother had come above, it seemed; no one else would think to protest their final chance for vengeance.  "We still have time to find harbor.  We will never survive this storm."

He lowered the glass at last and turned to smile at the youngster.  "Neither will he."
