|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Our captain, Faramir, is lost. All of our number became separated after he dealt a great blow to the Enemy's forces, and we only realized our loss after we regrouped here in the culverts.
'To my dismay, I was unaware of Faramir's ploy. It must have been a plan he put into action swiftly, but such haste did not lessen its impact. I heard a great shriek in the distance, like the deafening sounding of a Mûmak's trunk, but shrill as the pitch of a bat's cry. No sooner had the forces of the Enemy rallied to its source, and we were overwhelmed. We scattered, leading the foes with us, but we all made for the western gates... for our escape.
'I did not make it so far - great trolls blocked my advance, and I was forced to abandon my escape. I fled into the culverts and there I found the others. So it has been...
'If Faramir made it beyond the western gates, he may yet live, but that is unknown to us all. Damrod, one of my most trusted men, saw first-hand the fury Faramir loosed upon the Enemy. While he knows little else of Faramir's fate, all must be told of our captain's valour... especially if it may be his last.'
