|Walkthrough & Notes|
'What is it you wish to know?'
You ask the shade about an Elf named Magoldir who fought for the Last Alliance at the end of the Second Age.
'Was it the last?' he responds with a grim laugh. 'We called it the Great Alliance. It took years to assemble enough soldiers, from many different lands, and yet more years spent in fighting. We thought it was the end of the world; it seemed the war would last forever.'
He falls silent for a time, considering your question.
'I knew an Elf named Magoldir. He befriended my sons, if I remember aright, and fought alongside them during the Siege of Barad-dûr. And there was another, too: a <class>, the same as you, who adventured with my sons during the last days of the war. Yes. Let me tell you what I remember of this <class>, and through those words you may learn something of use concerning Magoldir the Elf. But before I tell you this tale, you will first need to recover something. The Orcs spent countless years delving in the muck of the Gladden Fields, and they brought the things they found to their various camps in the area. Go to the encampment southwest of here and retrieve a weather-stained coffer from within the camp. Its contents will refresh some of my memory, and then I will speak to you of the <class> who befriended my sons, and was allied with Magoldir the Elf.'
The shade of Isildur has agreed to tell you what he remembers of the Elf named Magoldir and the Siege of Barad-dûr that concluded the Second Age.
The shade of Isildur asked you to retrieve a weather-stained coffer from the encampment of Sharkey's Slough, southwest of Tol Send.
The shade of Isildur is waiting for you to bring the weather-stained coffer to Tol Send.
Elrond is on Tol Send, the Isle of the Flowers in the Gladden Fields.
Elrond examines the weather-stained coffer with some interest.
The shade of Isildur is pleased that you found the weather-stained coffer and brought it to Tol Send, and now wishes to tell you the tale he promised.
The Memories of the Great Alliance will allow you to experience the Siege of Barad-dûr at the end of the Second Age, as relayed to you by the shade of Isildur.
Ontamo is in Díngarth, chief fortification of the Great Alliance in Mordor Besieged.
