'Not many Elves pass through Dunland, <name>. I will not lead you false; for my part, there are three too many Elves in Tûr Morva right now.'
Evan studies you closely, seeking a reaction of some kind.
'I know what you think of my folk. You call us short-lived, cursed to a hard life in hard lands, while you enjoy many life-times of pleasure. But what do you know of us? What do you know of the history of my people? Ask those other Elves that came with you what they know of Dunland. I want to hear what they say.'
Evan of the Falcon-clan is mistrustful of Elves and wants to be sure you know it.
Elladan is south of the Brenin's house, by the ruins of the ancient fort near Tûr Morva. Elrohir is on a small rise overlooking the lake, west of the entrance to Tûr Morva.
Evan wants you to ask Elladan and Elrohir what they know about Dunland. He thinks they, and all Elves, look down on the shorter-lived races.
- Elladan: 'I will be honest, <name>. I do not know a great deal about Dunland or its people. I know they claim right to lands in the kingdom of Rohan and hold the Rohirrim as bitter enemies. They are organize into clans led by charismatic leaders. The Hebog-lûth, the Falcon-clan, does not trust Saruman, but it seems other clans in Dunland have allied themselves with the Wizard.
- 'Perhaps you should ask this Evan what he knows about the history of our people. I do not think he would do much better than I have done with his!'
- Elrohir: 'This Dunlending thinks we do not respect his people or their history? What history? The most note-worthy event I ever heard tell of was the Dunlending invasion of Rohan, which did not last long and eventually ended in defeat.
- 'You may not want to convey my opinion to this Evan, <name>. I am grateful that his clan resists the promises of Saruman, but I am under no bond to admire their histories.'
- Talk to Evan in Tûr Morva
Evan is just inside the entrance to Tûr Morva.
You have spoken with Elladan and Elrohir concerning their knowledge of Dunlending history and should now report it to Evan. You may wish to be tactful.
- Elrohir: 'I am glad that Evan's clan resists the promises of Saruman, <name>, but I will not pretend to care about the history of Dunland. That will have to be enough for him.'
- Elladan: 'I still think you should ask this Evan what he knows about the history of our people, <name>. Not much, I would wager.'
- Evan: 'Well? Did those other Elves know even the smallest thing about the history of my land and its people?'
- Evan listens to you tactful distillation of the Elf-brothers' answers.
- 'They know broad strokes. That is better than I expected. But they know nothing of the flavour! Spurned marriages, rebel armies, and finally a Dunlending power strong enough to avenge the injustices visited upon it by the King of Rohan! Do they know that might Wulf, son of the valiant Freca and greatest of all Dunlending warriors, claimed the Golden Hall and sat upon its throne?
- 'So much for the Rohirrim! Only through deception and with a small force could they remove Wulf as lord or all the land! The history of Dunland is a full one, and you Elves know little of it.
- 'But I am pleased to have taught you this much, at least: that there is more to know. Perhaps there can be an understanding between your people and mine after all. Go tell Penrod, to the north, that my previous misgivings have been lessened.'
Penrod is among the northern buildings of Tûr Morva.
Evan has decided he is not as angry about Elves as he once was and wants you to tell Penrod.
- Penrod: 'You spoke with Evan? Do not take his words much to heart. We do not see many Elves in Dunland, and some are rightly suspicious of such rarities.'
