|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Well-met, friend. You are a <class>, unless I miss my guess? I thought so. It is a pleasure to meet you. My name is Ramdir, and I am a Warden of Minas Ithil. We seek to keep alive the memory of the Tower of the Moon and the virtues that it represents. There are few of us left in these dark days, but that makes our charge all the more important.
'I have travelled with this band of adventurers ever since I met them at Cair Andros, to the south. Our goals are not precisely aligned, but I could not make the journey north on my own, and they professed a need for another protector on the road. I did not know how badly they needed it: they have not done the first thing for ensuring their safety at this camp! It is common cause enough, for now.
'Do you see the great rock out there in the water? It is called Tol Brandir by the Elves, but to Men of my kind it is the Tindrock. It is said to be unclimbable, but I worry that an Orc-archer could do some hurt if he managed to make it a perch. Swim out to the Tindrock and circle it once, looking for sign of an Orc-presence. It would make me feel more secure, friend.'
Ramdir told you how he came to journey with Hestil's group of adventurers-for-hire and wants your help to ensure their safety.
The Tindrock is the large rock located in the water at the top of the Falls of Rauros.
Ramdir asked you to swim out to the Tindrock, looking for signs of an Orc-presence seeking a foothold on the supposedly unclimbable rock.
Ramdir is at Hestil's camp on Parth Galen.
During your swim out to the Tindrock, you found evidence that the Orcs will be unable to gain a foothold on the steep rock rising above Rauros.
