-FR.RingGoesSouth “In no region had the messengers” (~p.3) – “but we must delay no longer” (~p.4)
– The scouts bring back disappointing news from their missions.
– The dead horses of the Black Riders have been found, but no trace of the Riders themselves or of Gollum.
– Gandalf is reassured that at least the Nine have been scattered and would have had to return to Mordor for the time being. However, they must not delay further, or else they might be pursued again.
