|Walkthrough & Notes|
'There is something strange here, <name>. While you were gone, one of my men and a few of the Dunlendings were taken away...not by the Orcs, but by a Man.
'He wore strange raiments, marking him as a person of some station, but I do not know whom he served. He was looking for the strongest and healthiest of the men among us. For what purpose, I do not know.
'They were taken away to the north, and the Orcs laughed cruelly as they left. You must find out where they were taken...and what fate could possibly be worse than to die in this dark pit.'
More slaves have dissappeared of late. It seems that some mysterious Man has come through the deeper tunnels, and each time takes a few of the hardier slaves away with him. To what fate, no one can tell, but given the laughter of the Orcs and their deference to this figure, it must be an evil one, indeed.
The missing prisoners and the Man who took them might be found somewhere in the Orc-mines.
Edhere asked you to seek his missing companions and the Man who took them.
Golvorn's captives are in the Orc-mines.
You have defeated Golvorn, a strange and powerful Man who claims to have served Saruman in some fashion. What fate he intended for the slaves he took is unknown, but you can at least free them now.
Edhere is in the Orc-mines.
You should return to Edhere and let him know that Golvorn's captives have been freed.
