The leaders of the armies gathered in the tent of Aragorn and made plans how to go further. They decided to take the greatest part of the army to attack the dark land in the next time and let the rest to help building up a temporary defence line. The army they gathered was less then 7000 men, 3000 Rohirrim and 4000 men from Gondor. Then they began their march to the black gates of Morannon. Gandalf hoped that Frodo and Sam had enough time to reach Mount Doom and destroy the ring. They all knew that their army was no match for the Dark Lord but they hoped to take his attention from his own land.
