War of the RingEdit
When Sauron was preparing to gather his forces to strike against the free people of Middle-earth, Abelard joined the Shire Company at Will Whitfoot's request and traveled a long journey to the south. Arriving to Gondor, Adelard participated in the Battle of Pelennor Fields where he slew several orcs that were retreating from the battlefield. He volunteered in gathering the wounded after the battle. He later fought in the Battle of Morannon against Sauron's forces and survived.
