A guess...Is it Aragorn, with the Grey Company, on the Paths of the Dead summoning the oathbreakers to the Stone of Erech?

Wait - were the elves present in both the book and the movie? (Was it even in the movie?)

Edit: Was there more than one elf present? (If yes, see above question, if not, please ignore [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] )

Question

On the assumption that you are not counting Elladan and Elrohir as Elves, is it the passage through the Paths of the Dead?

Is it RotK ? - Yes

As for your question The Saucepan Man: I have counted Elladan and Elrohir as Half-Elves, so the above question "Was more than one Elf involved" may be answered with Yes or No, but I actually did not consider Half-Elves to be Elves in this game, when I answered Alatariel's question.

So here are the correct hints so far:

Is it an event? - Yes
Does it happen in RotK? - Yes
Were Hobbits involved? - No
Is it Aragorn summoning the oathbreakers to the Stone of Erech? - No
Was more than one "real" elf involved? - No
Is it the Three Hunters' chasing Merry and Pippin through Rohan? - No
The battle of Pelennor? - No
Were Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli involved? - Yes
Were Orcs involved? - No
Was Gandalf involved? - No
Was Boromir involved? - No
Are there people of Rohan involved? - No
Is it the passage through the Paths of the Dead? - No

And because the matter of Elves and Half-Elves is a tricky one:

Were Half-Elves involved? - Yes

EfR

Ah, I thought as much. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Is it when the Corsairs are repelled at Pelargir by Aragron and co with the help of the Army of the Dead?

If not, is the Army of the Dead involved in the event?
