Battle at the ruins of Niniathen

Erebor Dwarves versus Mordor Orcs

The Elven ruins of Niniathen lay at the southern east edge of the Mirkwood forest.
The Orc armies of Mordor march north to harass the northern Kingdoms of Men and Dwarves.
Dwarf Lord Furlin not willing to wait set forth  to engage them at the ruins and Send their enemies running back to the black land of Mordor.

but they are fearless and charge the troll losing only one of their number
