'Your efforts are well known amongst all here in Esteldín, <name>. I am hopeful that you will assist me with a small task.
'Long ago, when I journeyed abroad, I taught Asikko, the chieftain of the Earth-kin the Westron letters. In return, he offered to write me a book describing their leatherworking methods. I need this book to fulfil a promise I made to a man in Trestlebridge as I came north from Rivendell in the guise of a common leatherworker. I promised to make for his people armour suitable for use against the Orcs.
'Will you go to Asikko and ask for the book? The Earth-kin are encamped north-east of here. Just skirt the hills northward from the eastern entrance to Esteldín.'
When Gondranc of Esteldín was journeying north from Rivendell, he had promised a man of Trestlebridge that he would assist them by providing armour for use against the Orcs.
Asikko is at the Earth-kin camp, found by skirting the hills northward from the eastern entrance to Esteldín.
In order to fulfil his obligation to Trestlebridge, Gondranc has asked you to obtain a book of leatherworking lore promised to him by Asikko, chieftain of the Earth-kin.
