Talk:Battle of Cirith Ungol

Shagrats had 80 orc under his Cammand and Gorbag had 40 I think in case you wanted to make a battle Info box Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

If you can just let me know where in the books that information is found I would be happy to add it. --Hyarion 20:23, 4 September 2007 (EDT)

I was wrong Gorbag had 80 twice as many of the orcs that went with shagrat who had 40 with him but more in the tower there we more the Chapter is The Tower of Cirith Ungol in The 3rd book. Shagrat survied and snaga was killed after the bad guys and also snaga said gorbags orcs reached the gate first so some could have got out and weren't seen by Sam however unlikely.

[edit] Suggestion for title

How about we call this the "Cirith Ungol riots" or "Orc-riot at Cirith Ungol", seeing as this was more of a dispute gone horribly wrong than a straight-forward battle? EldritchNexus 18:34, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

Disagree. On the basis that it would be harder to readers to find the article. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:50, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
A fair argument. Though don't we have redirect links for that? EldritchNexus 00:15, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
