|Walkthrough & Notes|
'We must not rely solely on the strength of the walls, <name>. We must ensure that the people are strong as well. It will not be long before the Enemy is arrayed before the walls, and in that moment the city's defenders will need courage with deep foundations. There are some folk with whom you should speak, my friend; unresolved matters may linger, and cast hearts into confusion when the end approaches.
'Day to day affairs in the city are managed by a group of officials that comprise the Council of Gondor. They meet in the Dome of the Sun on the Sixth Circle. Introduce yourself to the doorward and do what you can to aid the Council.
'I came here in the company of Peregrin Took, hobbit of the Shire. He is now a Guard of the Citadel -- the less said of that, the better -- and I expect he could use a friendly word from you, <name>.
'I spoke with Lord Duinhir of the Blackroot Vale a short time ago, and it seems that his sons left the city without his permission, and indeed against his direct command. I understand you met Duilin and Derufin during their ill-advised adventure. Find them within one of the taverns in the lower circles of the city, and perhaps something can be done to sootheir father's temper.'
