Instead of Minas Tirith being attacked by the hordes of Sauron, they are attacked by the Night King and his Army of the Dead The forces of Minas Tirith have knowledge of the strengths and weaknesses of Wights and Others Round 1: No dragons, no Gandalf Round 1: No restrictions
Powerlvlsrbullsh1t , question is minas tirith able request assistance from their allies such as the elves from the woodland realm and Rivendell, the dwarves from erebor, or the forces from Rohan, or the army of the dead? Also how big of a force are we looking at from the knight king some speculate from that what I have heard their were at least 60k of Sauron forces.

Falbium, The only assistance that Minas Tirith will get is that the Riders of Rohirrim will arrive to assist, either if the situation in Minas Tirith becomes dire enough or after two full days of fighting, whichever comes first.
The army of the dead is sizably larger, estimated to be around 100k strong, but about 99% of those are undead human Wights with little to no weapons and armor and are completely braindead. There are some stronger units, like undead giants, but those are extremely rare. Leading the forces are the Others (also known by the show canon as White Walkers), who are actual warriors with armour and weaponry made of a unique substance that shatters ordinary weapons like ice upon contact. The leader of the Others is the Night King, who can oneshot a dragon if he lands a spear of ice on them and who rides an undead dragon, though this dragon has been restricted in round one. The only permanent way to put these things down is with fire or to fully dismember them so that they can no longer fight, and everyone killed by a wight or Other is resurrected as a member of the Army of the Dead.
Powerlvlsrbullsh1t, hmm well with knowledge minas tirith definitely can hold their own for a while. Also since wights are pretty much brain dead do they have any means to breach the gate of Gondor because if you remember it took quite a bit of effort in Mordor side to do it. And once the riders of Rohan show up they do to them what they did to Mordor forces lol also from what I know don’t some humans in lotr tend to be superhuman. So Aragorn could most likely defeat the more powerful the undead army. As for round two I don’t see Gandalf the white having much problem with the night king and the dragon even Gandalf the grey took care of balrog though with great effort and a battle that lasted a long time and the white is more powerful. I can also see him calling for the aid of the eagles for the battle. But tbf I’m not very knowledgeable about got and I know the live action of lotr also doesn’t 100 percent portray everything and book versions of characters tend to be stronger than their live action counter parts.
The Night King is also very durable. He fell from cloud level down to the ground and took no damage. Then Dany had Drogon hit him with dragons breath that was blowing through stone building with ease but all the Night King did was smirk at her.

Zero, I would honestly call both of those outliers, especially the dragon fire one. That one literally doesn't make any sense, and perfectly demonstrates how garbage the writing for season 8 was. The entire reason Valyrian Steel is one of the few things that can destroy a White Walker is because they were forged in Valyria with dragon fire. If they showed the dragon fire not affecting him to be indicative that the Night King is above that weakness, that might have been something, but Arya literally just stabs him with Valyrian Steel and he dies immediately. So is he or is he not immune to fire?
Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...

Dream: ...to the 2000s series.

Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.

Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.

Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.

Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.

CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys

Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.

Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
