According to a poem, read by Aragorn earlier, what is the name of the stone at which his party must stop to meet the Oathbreakers who dwell along the Paths of the Dead?

Back at Edoras, Théoden is reunited with his sister-daughter Éowyn. He and his men intend to make their way towards Gondor to join the great battle against the hordes of Sauron, but in due time. Unfortunately, however, a messenger from Gondor arrives with news of Denethor's desperate need for immediate assistance. An arrow of what color has been sent to Edoras, to emphasize the grave nature of the situation?
With the hastening of the mission, Merry and Éowyn both find themselves in the position of having to see the Riders of Rohan off, while they remain behind at Edoras. This situation suits neither of them well, and both resolve to make their way furtively to the war in Gondor. Éowyn disguises herself as a Rider, and takes the as yet unaware Merry along with her. By what name does Éowyn call herself?
At Minas Tirith, Faramir has returned to update his father of the situation on the battlefield while Gandalf and Pippin look on. Denethor is rather displeased with Faramir for several reasons, but finds him wise at least to have avoided the same mistake that befell his brother Boromir, that is, attempting to acquire the Ring of Power.
With Faramir off defending Osgiliath once again, war approaches Gondor. The forces of Mordor begin by breaking down the walls of the Pelennor, after which they make their way towards Minas Tirith. They are led by the Lord of the Nazgûl, the Captain of the Ringwraiths; ancient King of which region?
The final straw of Denethor's sanity is plucked when Faramir returns, having been struck by a Southron dart. When Denethor sees his son's body, sickened by the evil poison of the black dart, he insists on locking himself away, concerning himself no longer with the war at his city's gates. He tells his men that they should follow whom they will, even if it be Gandalf, to whom he refers to with what derogatory name?
The wicked swarms of Mordor approach the outer gates of Minas Tirith, but find them nearly inpenetrable. Nearly, I say, because there is one device in their possession which may effectively burst through the mighty outer portals of the city. What did the smithies of Mordor call this device (a massive battering ram)?
On their way to meet the deadly foes of Gondor, the Riders of Rohan make their way through Druadan Forest where they encounter the men of the woods. What is the term used to describe these 'wild' men?
As Minas Tirith is being laid siege, the Riders of Rohan finally arrive to join the battle. The Riders are of course led by King Théoden, who rides upon a horse that proves to be his bane. What is the horse called?
Who came to Théoden's aide, killing both the Lord of the Nazgûl and the beast upon which the Witch King was mounted?
