'Two young and headstrong youths of the Eglain, Elsa and Eriac, entered Agamaur with a small company. They sought to find the power behind the threat to their people, but if the Gaunt-lord Ivar has come to Agamaur, I fear they face a power they cannot overcome. They need your help.
'The Red Swamp is divided into two regions. The southern marshes, Haragmar, you know. Elsa and Eriac entered Agamaur, the northern marshes, through the Red-pass. It is a passage known only to the Eglain...and myself.
'I will accompany you, for the shadow that has come to Agamaur is too powerful for you to deal with alone. Gather allies to aid you, for there is no telling what evil awaits us in the swamp. Return to me when you are prepared to leave.'
Radagast told you that members of the Eglain, led by Elsa and Eriac, had entered Agamaur, the northern marshes of the Red Swamp.
Radagast the Brown is in the tower at the end of the main avenue in Ost Guruth.
Radagast the Brown waits to lead you into the passage to Agamaur, while you gather allies. When you are prepared to leave, you should speak with Radagast again.
Else is in the camp within the ruins.
You should speak with Elsa about your victory within Agamaur.
The Eglain and the shades of Arthedain have established a small encampment within the ruins. Elsa of the Eglain waits to speak with you.
Your battle against Ivar's dark-water was a victory, or so it appears. The Gaunt-lord retreated into the north, pursued by Radagast the Brown, and has not been seen since.
