Can Nazgul only be recruited into Shadow cities or strongholds that were ORIGINALLY aligned with Shadow? Just wanted to confirm this. Thx.

Ye there's that restriction but also as leaders of armies controlled by Sauron (as opposed to Easterlings or Saruman's forces) they're restricted to recruitment in areas Sauron controlled originally too.

Ahh - I see. But I thought there was something about them not actually being considered Sauron forces, but more generic or something. I'll need to recheck the rules to find what I'm talking about.

If you try to align the game with the story, there is no way that other allies of the dark lord can recruit the nazgul. It doesn't make sense. There are only 9 nazgul and they're only asnwer to sauron only. This explains why nazgul can only be recruited by the dark lord.

You're referring to the face that they can lead any Shadow army. This is similar to free peoples leaders, but the other two shadow factions have no leaders of their own, and rely on the Nazgul.

Isengard (and S&E, in multi-player games) Elites act as Leaders for movement and combat purposes while Saruman is in play.
