|Walkthrough & Notes|
'While we pushed through the fiends and the fog, we lost a few people. Some headed deeper into the mists of the Barrow-downs, and we hope they survived to reach a safe location in the south.
'Others were stricken with a terrible pox. One of these men was not as ill as others, but being sick, he offered to take word back to Bree requesting help.
'I fear that the disease comes from the crawlers and rats infesting this land. If this is true, then we shall need to clear a path through the Barrow-downs so we have a safe path out. If you are willing, kill these creatures but be wary, their bites and even their flesh may cause some vile illness or disease.'
Guides out of Bree fear for their wards as the terrors of the Barrow-downs are now unleashed in the north. This unexpected course has forced them to drastic action.
Crawlers and rats can be found throughout the northern Barrow-downs and these vermin are likely carriers of disease. You have been asked to kill these creatures so that the refugees hiding at the camp between the Barrow-downs and the Old Forest will have a clear path to follow when they leave.
Sal Haywood believes that you can help her create a path for the Bree-folk to follow when the time comes for them to move. She asked you to rid the Barrow-downs of many of the vermin therein.
Sal Haywood rests with the others at the makeshift camp between the Barrow-downs and the Old Forest.
You fought and slew a good number of the disease-bearing creatures that make the Barrow-downs their home. You should return to Sal Haywood with the news.
