We added a long lost friend to this quest. His heroes made this work.

So Frodo chose the dead marshes route, Sam caught him up with help from Galadriel and Faramir (my heroes), with them came Eomer, Fastred, Rossiel(Liz); Idraen, Lanwyn , Legolas(Cullen), Elrond, Arwen and Thurindir(Mike). It was a long trek through the marshes, Gollum/Smeagal was tamed early, Treachery turned him back to Gollum and then he was tamed again. Through out we were engaged by the undead of the marshes, making progress difficult, we even had to deal with 2 Nazgul. In the end Faramir and Galadriel's archers proved to be decisive. Just as the party was nearing the threshold of being discovered by Saroun (threats in the 40's) Faramir and the Archers combined with others across the board to vanquish the undead of the swamps. Just as this was accomplished Smeagol pointed towards the mountains of Mordor and there was a path! Every one ran down the path hoping is would lead us to the end of the marshes and it did. Out of the Marshes we now are in the lands of Ithilien, but mass movement of Harad troops loom ahead of us.... (as a side note we quested for 64 among the 4 players, and we had Sulien(sp?) that could have made our margin of success even greater than it was). This was our 4th or 5th attempt (previous ones were with 3 players) and it really mattered to have 4 players to distribute the undead enemies around, With a fair amount of Ranged and a bit of sentinel it became doable but was tense through out.
