Ancalagon the Black and others in the War of Wrath and Smaug in the Battle of Five Armies, but if you include single combat as a battle then Glaurung v. Turin at the Crossings of Teiglin and Scatha v. Fram.

In the days of which Steward of Gondor did three great fleets (long prepared) come up from Umbar and Harad?

If any of you guys out there want to play you're more then welcomed to join.

In which battle did Thorin, son of Thrain, gain his nickname.

Groin, you are soon going to find out that you should not have done that.

Battle of Azanulbizar. He used oaken branch to defend himself when he lost his shield there.

Rats! I'm always screwing up!

I checked, and this thread has been stagnant since 2006, and the rules say anyone can post a new question.

By the way, you got it right, Legate!

Let's try this: Someone decided to stand with certain faction in a certain battle because of the sympathies with their leader and also because he could easily retreat if he stood with this faction.
My questions:
Who?
In what battle?
With what faction did he side?

Who? Brodda, Ulfing Chieftan.
In what battle? Battle of Unnumbered Tears
With what faction did he side? Morgoth and his followers.

Brodda, in sympathy with his leader, Uldor the son of Ulfang, sided with Morgoth and his minions against the elves and other free people's of Middle Earth.

Only thing I dont know about is the easy to retreat bit.

Who? Turgon of Gondolin
In what battle? Battle of Unnumbered Tears(i beleive)
With what faction did he side? with his brothers.


Turgon remained passive for awhile, during this battle he chose to come out but in the rearguard, when the battle turned he easily retreated back into Gondolin.

Nope. Though your reasoning is very good, Gil. But I can maybe add that the person, though one of the named reasons was the possibility of an easy retreat, did not in the end use this possibility, i.e. did not retreat.

Who? Maeglin
What battle? Fall of Gondolin
What faction? Army of Morgoth


Maeglin sided with them so he could obtain his passion, and with Gondolin surrounded he could easily escape if he allied them, but alas he was cast over the side of the walls to his death.

Good, Nerwen. You are right, of course (and maybe you are even right).

The high ideals of First Age were nice, but you can all see, it was far simpler

Please continue the thread, Nerwen.

Not the last battle against the WK, i.e. Fornost, by chance? The Gondorians won there, although they were in Arnor.

At least once You can be happy. Hmm... that's very vague, could be many things in that case.

But what about the Battle of the Camp, where the Easterling Wainriders were defeated? It took place in the North Ithilien, while the (later victorious) Gondorians came from the South.

It wasn't. I had to look it up

Okay, so what to post? What about this:

There are many battles commemorated among the defenders of the West (and Beleriand). Once in a while some Gondorian Steward or Elven Lord could rise up at the table and say "Today, we commemorate the 1000th anniversary of the Battle of ..." But what about the other side? Did the followers of the (Great) Enemy commemorate these things? We don't know. But what we know is that they remembered them. And we know of at least one such an event that was remembered under different name than in the Western World. Now what I want from you is to give me that name.

Well, all I can think about is the conversation between Gorbag and Shagrat.
Let me get the quote.
Ok, here it is:

So the Orcs refer to the Siege of Barad-dűr as the Great Siege.
