Interesting idea, perry, but what's the objective? For the Shadow to eke out a military victory in one or two turns before the ring goes ploink? For FP forces to hold out long enough for Frodo to do his job? Where would you put the FSP on the Mordor track?
Also, I think Umbar and other parts of Harad would still be under S&E control. Aragorn with Dead Men took out the Corsairs in Pelargir (and the Southern Fiefs?) if I'm not mistaken, before they could join the battle of the Pelennor Fields.
;)This will be an entirely military scenario. FSP is on Mordor Track step 5, but riddled with Corruption. The hunt pool will kill them if they go further. Now the freeples need a military victory in order to relieve the FSP from the burden of the Eye, thus enable them to destroy the ring.

SCENARIO SPECIAL RULES
VICTORY CONDITIONS: No side may gain a Ring Victory. Only Military Victory is possible.
SHARKEY: As submitted in the "Minion Boosts" thread: Sharkey may be mustered instead of a Nazgul in a normal SP mustering action. Sharkey is placed with any Isengard army. He functions with Leadership 1 for movement and battle purposes and has no special abilities. Sharkey is affected by FP Combat Cards as a Nazgul. Once eliminated, he may not be replaced. Use the Saruman miniature to portray Sharkey.
IT IS TOO HEAVY: The FSP may not move further on the Mordor Track. The FSP does not gain Corruption, due to not moving on the Mordor Track.
Interesting Scenario - looks like it might be fun. Just a note - Merry should be in MT, not Dagorlad. Merry stayed in Minas Tirith to recover from his wounds and did not march with the armies of Gondor to the battle of the Black Gates.
