By the time that Bibo had the ring the nazgul were back. Besides,the books mention an endless storm (as in lightning) in the mountains surrounding mordor, and in "The Hobbit" the eagle's leader makes it clear that arrows can ill them with little trouble. Horde of orcs, anyone?

If it had been 58 word stories, they would have been able to have tea and cream-cakes... In fact, in the original they had crumpets but I had to sacrifice that whole plot addition to save 2 words I am afraid.
