Captain Thorongil signaled for the bottle to be given to him. Although it appeared to be filled with wine, it truly held rock oil, which was crucial to his plan to burn the Corsairsí fleet in their berths. At the moment a small group of men from Dol Amroth were sailing a ship taken from the Haradrim into the bay and were preparing to set fire to it. Certain places on the hull had been weakened, which would allow it to be sunk in the center of the harbor mouth. In moments those braziers on its deck and in its holds would be tipped over, and its sailors would abandon ship to swim to a longboat already set in place to receive them. He himself would lead the bulk of Gondorís men in the expected battle on the wharves of Umbar.
Ah--there was the signal! It was time to fight!
