Bestowal dialogue

'I had hoped we would learn something of Narchuil that might aid us in finding it before the Angmarim, but that hope, like so many others, has been dashed. We have been delayed by Mordrambor and must now follow Amarthiel's forces eastward, where I had hoped to stay before them.

'No matter. There are many tall hills between here and the wilderness of the Trollshaws, and if we must follow, we will do so knowing what to expect. You should leave Evendim heading east and pass through the Fields of Fornost. A short distance north-east of Trestlebridge stands the great hill of Amon Raith. Stand at its peak and look eastward. If you see the Angmarim ahead of you, continue to Amon Sûl, which is called Weathertop by many, in the Lone-lands, and do the same: look eastward from its summit.

'I am worried that the Angmarim may attack villages along the way. By scouting their position from the heights, you will be able to learn of their progress and follow them wherever they are headed.'

Background

Companies of Angmarim have been seen leaving Evendim and passing into the east, heading for the Trollshaws in search of Narchuil.

Objective 1

Amon Raith is a tall hill in the North Downs, south-east of the Fields of Fornost and north-east of Trestlebridge.

Calenglad has asked you to travel to the summit of Amon Raith and to look eastward from the heights.

Objective 2

  • Look to the east atop Amon Raith

Amon Raith is a tall hill in the North Downs, south-east of the Fields of Fornost and north-east of Trestlebridge.

Calenglad has asked you to travel to the summit of Amon Raith and to look eastward from the heights.

Far to the east, a cloud of dust marks the passage of the Angmarim

Objective 3

Amon Sûl, the great hill of Weathertop, is located in the Lone-lands.

Calenglad has asked you to travel to the summit of Weathertop and to look eastward from the heights.

Objective 4

  • Look to the east atop Weathertop

Amon Sûl, the great hill of Weathertop, is located in the Lone-lands.

Calenglad has asked you to travel to the summit of Weathertop and to look eastward from the heights.

Far to the east, a company of Angmarim crosses the Last Bridge

Objective 5

Looking eastward from the summit of Weathertop, you saw a company of Angmarim crossing the Last Bridge into the Trollshaws.

You have followed a company of Angmarim eastward, and they have reached the Last Bridge before you. You should travel to the Last Bridge and speak with the scout posted there for news of the Angmarim.

Alphlanc: 'You are seeking the Angmarim that passed this way not long ago? I saw them coming from a great distance and managed to hide myself before they arrived. I feared I would be found, for at the head of their number marched a man of great evil; a Black Numenórean, if I do not miss my guess. It seemed to me that he stared right at my hiding place, but at just that moment he was interrupted by some thought that caused him to turn and gaze off into the distance to the west; I know not what it was, but he shortly resumed his march, and the company passed into the east.
'Your face tells me that you have had dealings with this man, and the memory is full of sorrow. From what I overheard, it seemed their course lay to the south, among the cheerless lands of Tâl Bruinen. My sister Candelleth has a camp in Tal Bruinen. To reach it, follow the road east of here until you are nearly within sight of the Bruinen, and you will come to a dirt path that winds southwards with the Bruinen to your left and a tall rock face on your right. Stay on the path, even as it crosses streams and winds through the underbrush, and you will surely come across one of Candelleth's scouts, who can guide you to her camp.
'Tell Candelleth of the Angmarim that have come to the land of her watch. Tell her, as well, to be wary. I fear to think what errand could have brought this Black Numenórean so near to Imladris.'

Objective 6

Echad Candelleth is in Tâl Bruinen, south of the Ford of Bruinen. Alphlanc told you to locate the path south along the banks of the Bruinen, and to follow the path until you come across one of Candelleth's scouts, who can further guide you to the camp.

Alphlanc has told you that the Angmarim company passed into Tâl Bruinen and wants you to travel to her sister Candelleth's camp in order to warn her of the danger posed by the presence of the Angmarim.

Candelleth: 'You bring warning from my sister that the Angmarim have come to Tâl Bruinen? Her warning is welcome, but my scouts have already encountered the Enemy.'
'Do you know why they have come to this place? Can you tell me what brings them to these woods, so far from their evil homeland?'
