|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Saeradan's word comes late to the Lone-lands. If Radagast the Brown passed into these lands then perhaps hope is not lost in this place. I have returned only recently from a journey in lands far to the east, lands held firmly in the grip of evil. When I returned from that journey, I learned to my dismay that evil does not stir in the East alone.
'Goblins now roam to the south, while their larger and more ferocious cousins among the Orcs spread through the Weather Hills like a festering plague.
'I must find the main body of the Orcs. If you will assist me in driving back the Enemy in these hills, I will begin the search for Radagast the Brown. What say you?'
Candaith, the Ranger who watches the Great East Road as it passed through the Lone-lands, has learned of an Orkish presence in the Weather Hills.
White Hand Orcs infest the Weather Hills, west of Candaith's camp.
The Ranger Candaith offered you assistance in finding Radagast the Brown in exchange for aid against the Orcs in the Weather Hills.
Candaith is at his camp near the foot of Weathertop, among the Weather Hills.
While you were fighting the Orcs, Candaith began his search for Radagast the Brown.
