|Walkthrough & Notes|
'The water that the Orcs bring us comes from the dank pools that gather in the low areas of the mine. It is contaminated and poisonous, and those who drink it eventually fall ill, so we are left either to die slowly from the poison or more swiftly from thirst...an unpleasant choice of evils. Eventually, we just collapse from exhaustion or sickness, and the Orcs toss us into some pit to die.
'If you could find some source of fresh water in these caverns and get it to the exhausted miners, it would help restore their strength and purchase us some time to plan our escape.'
The slaves in the mining pit dare not drink the terribly polluted and poisonous water given to them by the Orcs.
There must be a source of fresh water somewhere in the Orc-mines.
Edhere has asked you to find a source of fresh water for the miners who are dying of thirst.
The exhausted miners can be found in the Orc-mines.
You should bring the fresh water to the exhausted miners as Edhere requested.
Edhere is in the Orc-mines.
You should return to Edhere and let him know that you have found fresh water.
