Posted by on Jun 12, 2019 in Podcast, The Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers, Tolkien | 0 comments

This week Caitlin, Rachel, and Emmy discuss The Two Towers, Chapter 2, The Riders of Rohan

Characters

  • Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas – the Three Hunters, the Fellowship leftovers
  • Eomer – The Third Marshall of the RIddermark, a man of Rohan.
  • Eothain – a man of Eomer’s company.
  • Arod and Hasufel – New horses!
  • Theoden – we only get a mention of him, but he is the King of Rohan.

The Journey

The Three Hunters run down from Emyn Muil and across the Eastemnet of Rohan back north towards Isengard, and end their journey on the outskirts of Fangorn Forest.

Here you can see the borders of Rohan as a whole.

I took a picture of the path of the Three Hunters in the Atlas, while attempting to avoid spoilers.
