Blackbow and the Ithilien Rangers

 February, 25 2006

The place to discuss this eternal WIP. Also a good place for Ranger questions. Suggestions upon ways to get Faramir's shirt off in the next chapters are also appreciated.

That makes sense, Rebecca, but then the Swan Knights have Cuilast

Obviously I'm totally guessing about all of this but the point I was driving at earlier is that perhaps there were no healers in Henneth Annn because it wasn't an area that a healer would be willing to work in. Or at least that was part of the reason (Denethor's neglect aside)? If my assumptions about healers not shedding blood, etc. are correct, the lack of a healer in HA is explained by the conditions a healer is able (or willing) to work under -- Ithilien was too dangerous for anyone, even a healer, to go about unarmed. The Swan Knights' usual stomping ground does not include places where one must be on constant high alert against orc attacks. A healer could go about with the Swan Knights unarmed and be reasonably safe. Not so in Ithilien before the Ring War.

It's perhaps related to the point I was trying to make about Andrahar's judgement of Hethlin for failing to keep Imrahil safe in the orc attack. When orcs are involved the dangers are not comparable to those posed by brigands or pirates.
