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.

Definitely. Andrahar's pretty open minded as well-at least where things other than Hethlin are concerned.

Maybe adding healers to the SK was relatively recent?

No, I think it's been that way for a while. Kendrion also served in a military capacity like Cuilast.

Plus, I just realized that their patrol area is probably much larger than Ithilien or Gondor proper - so there may be no reliable place to take injured knights to recover. (At least the Rangers had Henneth Annun.) All leading to more emphasis on care in the field for them?

Cuilast doesn't always go into the field with the Knights, though he will if they're going way off into Western Gondor or something. More often than not, they bring their wounded home to him. Liahan is not the only Swan Knight who knows a bit of leech-craft-they all get some basics as a matter of course. Liahan, like Mablung, is capable of quite a bit more.

Dol Amroth has a tradition of trying to retain the arts of Numenor, and the medical arts are certainly part of that. Kendrion was very respected in his time, and Cuilast is getting a reputation.
