• A day for using one's sword, a battle day. "After Theoden gave his orders he stood in front of the group he was going to be leading. He faced them as stared at their faces. He could tell they were afraid, but so was he. Though a king could not show fear, so he said, "Forth, and fear no darkness!" Theoden moved down the line of soldiers as he continued, "Arise, arise, Riders of Theoden! Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered, a sword-day, a red day, ERE THE SUN RISES!!!" At this, all the soldier held out their spears, awaiting for the king. Theoden pulled out his sword and rode past all the soldiers, hitting their spears with his sword as he rode. "Ride now! Ride for ruin, and the worlds ending!" Theoden stopped and faced the enemy. After a moment of staring them down, "Death!!!!!" Theoden shouted, and the soldiers replied, "Deeeeath!!!!!!" They repeated this until the horn was blown yet again. "Forth Eorlingas!" Theoden yelled before he charged towards the enemy. No fear dwelled within the old kings heart, just courage and willpower. He listened to the many hoof beats behind him as the Rohanian's went into battle." Source:
