"Langhold is under attack by brigands, and worse yet -- their new Khundolar allies from the East."

Background

Langhold is on the brink of a worrisome attack by unified forces of vengeful brigands and blood-thirsty Easterlings, backed by Mordor.

Objective 1

Thane Utred of Langhold has a decision to make.

You should speak with the Thane of Langhold.

Thane Utred: 'These "Nazgûl" of Mordor cannot be so strong as to lay low a strong city such as Langhold, full of hale Rohirrim warriors and war-steeds. I will not let the brigands refute their exile while I live!

Cíllan says, "You need not fear for the safety of Langhold's women and children!"
Heburga says, "Father, let me stay and fight with you!"
Utmund says, "Me too, father! I am almost big enough to wield a sword...."
Thane Utred says, "My sweet children! I would not let you risk your lives for the world."
Thane Utred says, "The riders of Langhold will protect this city or die trying. That is our duty."
Thane Utred says, "But who will look after the other children while the men defend the town?"
Heburga says, "You can count on us, father!"
Utmund says, "I'll protect them too!"
Thane Utred says, "That is what I like to hear!"
Thane Utred says, "Take my war-steed, Cíllan. I know he will bear you all to Harwick safely!"
Cíllan says, "Farewell, Utred. I pray for a swift victory!"
