|Walkthrough & Notes|
'We have come to the crossroads, <name>, and sooner than I expected. I want to help the Prince of Rohan, for without his aid and that of his doughty warriors, my men and I would still be captives of the Falcon-clan. But we cannot abandon our journey; our duty lies with Aragorn, and we must find him in Rohan or die searching. We cannot stay to help Théodred with his battles.
'I want you to go with the prince, <name>. I want you to lend him your strength and your wisdom and your courage. You can travel south more swiftly than we can; even hale and hearty, our diminished number would take some time to make ready, and we are wounded and tired.
'Make your farewells with my kin, <name>. I know they will want to say goodbye. Saeradan is there, by the fire. He knows what I have in mind, though the others may not.'
Halbarad is at the camp in the Gravenwood, trying to decide how to safely proceed with the Grey Company's mission and how to help Théodred at the same time.
