OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.
Isabeau wrote: As far as (1) goes, I'm thinking that it's close to Minas Tirith, but unpopulated enough that Halaran's obvious Northern accent, etc. will be accepted and not commented upon. I would think that if he were to settle in MT itself (unlikely, or in the surrounding area, word might get back to Denethor and he might be in for some questioning. But visiting every once in a while to buy supplies and trade furs wouldn't cause a lot of comment. He could keep a watch upon things. I suspect that his plan was that if the Enemy finally made his move, Halaran would summon an Eagle to let Aragorn know.
Sorry to share the obsessive little workings of my mind, which can be relentless until something is resolved 100%... all of the above makes absolute sense to me, because I do think that Halaran would correctly perceive Denethor as a potential threat in and of himself (although Denethor never knew who Thorongil really was, he did at least know that he was of the northern Dunedain, right?). OK, so the last little niggling thing I'm wondering about is the fact that at one point Halaran goes to MT to beg on behalf of all Anorien(ne?) settlers for aid against the brigands. So he was drawing Denethor's attention to himself. Just wondering why.
