'So, <name>, we now know whither the Company has gone. They have surely passed into the long dark of Moria. May the Valar guide their steps, for it is said Durin's Bane dwells there still...though none can say for certain, as no one in this age has ever laid eyes upon it.
'Here, then, is the last task appointed to us: we must confuse their trail, so that the Enemy cannot be prepared for their passage. Speak again with Ruidhriel and Limlaer...they will know what to do.
'If you have forgotten, Ruidhriel is encamped near the Burnt Tor to the north-west, while you may find Limlaer along the road to the south-west.'
While the Company did try the Redhorn Gate, they were forced to turn back. Neither was there any sign of their passing towards the Gap of Rohan, leaving but one direction open to Rinneldor's mind: Moria.
Ruidhriel is encamped near the Burnt Tor, north-west of Echad Dúnann. Limlaer may be found along the road, south-west of Echad Dúnann.
Rinneldor has asked you to once again speak with Ruidhriel and Limlaer to learn what must be done to confuse the Company's trail.
Rinneldor is at Echad Dúnann, south-east of the Burnt Tor and north-east of Limlaer's post.
You should return to Rinneldor with news of your successes.
