'Some days ago our bravest scout leave to spy upon the Orcs as they travel through the pass.
'He sent message that he found something worse - a dark cleft filled with evil bat-creatures he has not seen before... but that is last we hear from him.
'Can you find our scout? See that he is safe? He had a small camp hidden high up along wall of the valley to the east - if he lives you find him there.'
Chief Tuokki has asked you to seek out one of the Earth-kin -- a scout who was sent into the next valley to spy upon a band of deadly bat-women who have made lair somewhere in the hidden clefts of the Ram Dúath. The Chief informed you the scout had a small camp hidden high up along the wall of the valley to the East.
- Earth-kin Scout: 'Chief Tuokki send you to help me? Could have sent someone bigger, I think... but I am hurt, will take your help gladly!
- 'Evil things gather here in Ram Dúath. More evil than Orcs, more evil than Men who serve dark lords. I shall tell you of them!'
