Characters

  • Gandalf – OUR Wizard
  • Saruman – That OTHER Wizard. Has a seductive voice. 
  • Merry/Pippin – The best gate keepers there ever were. 
  • Aragorn/Legolas/Gimli – the hunters, just being there, representing the three races of Middle Earth (even though there are more)
  • Treebeard – In charge of Isengard
  • Théoden – King of Rohan
  • Éomer – Théoden’s nephew and heir.
  • Grima Wormtongue – a man with terrible aim

No maps this week as all the action takes place within Isengard. Once again. Two chapters in a row with no walking. Weird.
