|Walkthrough & Notes|
'In ages past, we were cursed by Iarwain Ben-adar for our inaction as the Red-maid slipped further from the gentle creature she was to the corrupt thing she now is. Until she is redeemed or removed from the world, we are cursed to wander these swamps, with no hope of rest.
'But we have no hope. She is too powerful, or so the men believe. I do not believe this is so. I must find a way to restore the men's resolve. I must find a way to restore their resolve. One of the Eglain, Hartrím, has gone to the place where she dwells. He goes to secure items lost as my brethren and I battled the Angmarim and Hillmen of Rhudaur: our shields. I believe they are still held by the Hillmen who worship the Red-maid and the brigands who have allied themselves with them.
'Perhaps you would seek Hartrím at the outskirts of Garth Agarwen and ask him how his efforts progress.'
The shades that wander these marshy lands were cursed to remain in Middle-earth, houseless and restless, until they either redeemed or destroyed the Red-maid of Agamaur.
Make your way to the entrance to the area known as Garth Agawen, north-east of the Eglan-camp, and speak with Hartrím.
Dannasen asked you to seek out Hartrím at the entrance to Garth Agarwen in an effort to discover if he has found any of the shields once used by Dannasen and his brethren.
The Hillmen of Rhudaur who serve the Red-maid and their brigand allies can be found in Garth Agarwen, the fortress of the Red-maid in the north-east of Agamaur. Hartrím awaits you outside the gates of Garth Agarwen.
Dannasen, one of the shades of Arthedain cursed by Iarwain Ben-adar, fears that the others have lost their resolve to break their curse, believing that the Red-maid is too powerful. To strengthen their resolve, Dannasen enlisted Hartrím of the Eglain to collect the shields they lost to Rhudaur long years ago. Hartrím, too weak to face these foes, turns to you for assistance.
