Bestowal dialogue

After the great battle, we had much to consider, my friend.

'The Orcs claimed Bâr Aroth and from the north, the Khundolar struck and made inroads from Dagorlad.

'Where the rest that fled the battle have gone I do not know for certain, but I fear many may have found new refuge within North Ithilien.

'In these dark times, I count myself fortunate to have your trust and I give you mine in return.

'I would ask that you search the shores of the Anduin to the west, the hill-top to the north of Bâr Aroth, and the foot-hills of the Ephel Dúath, the Mountains of Shadow, for signs of our foes.

'When you have finished your patrol, meet me to the north at the old baths of Aelin Veren, and it is there we shall speak more on what is to be done in the coming days.'

Background

Although the battle is ended, Thurindol fears that the Enemy will soon muster more of his forces against Gondor within North Ithilien.

Objective 1

  • Patrol the hill-top to the north of Bâr Aroth
  • Patrol the foot-hills of the Ephel Dûath to the east of Bâr Aroth
  • Patrol the shores of the Anduin to the north of Osgiliath

Bâr Aroth can be found on a hillside to the north of the Cross-roads in North Ithilien.

Thurindol has asked you to assess the Enemy's presence in North Ithilien before you continue your journey to the refuge.

From the hill-top to the north of Bâr Aroth:
In the distance, you spy great black wings looming over North Ithilien...
From the foot-hills of the Ephel Dûath to the east of Bâr Aroth:
You discover the mangled remains of a Ranger who appears to have fallen a great distance...
From the shores of the Anduin to the north of Osgiliath:
The shore is littered with the bodies of Orcs that drowned while fleeing the battle...

Objective 2

  • Talk to Thurindol at Aelin Veren

Thurindol can be found at Aelin Veren.

You have scouted the lands surrounding Bâr Aroth and should bring news to Thurindol at Aelin Veren.

'While I am gladdened that many Orcs failed in their crossing of the Anduin, I fear we will not soon see the last of the Enemy's wraiths and their terrible, flying beasts.
'We shall have to use greater caution in our movements, lest we be discovered from above. For my part, I am glad that you remained hidden from their sight, my friend.
'I shall bring these tidings to captain Anborn at Henneth Annûn.'
