'We cannot grieve now for Laerdan, <name>. Amarthiel will not hesitate to make use of her newly-found knowledge. If only we had been able to seize the palantír in time, her search for Narchuil might have remained fruitless! Nay, there is little use in dwelling on the past. Take comfort in this, <name>: we know what Amarthiel saw within the depths of the seeing-stone, for she spoke of it when you and Laerdan entered Barad Tironn! Did she not speak of the wilderness of the Trollshaws? She has revealed to us her next movement, and if we act with haste, we may yet find Narchuil before she does.
'We have not the numbers to prevent her servants from leaving Evendim, but we can at least be alerted of their movements. Two of my brethren watch the roads out of Evendim, and they must be told what to expect: that Amarthiel may be planning to send her servants by various roads out of Evendim. Seek Torogethir at the Evendim Gate, north-east of here at the pass to the Fields of Fornost, and Galthoniel on a small rise overlooking the Barandalf, far to the south of here and east of the halfling-village of Dwaling. Tell them what we suspect of Amarthiel's plans, and that they are to send ravens to Tinnudir at the first sign of the Angmarim's movements.
'They are not to engage any such patrols in open battle! Go with haste, <name>! When our strength in arms is found lacking, information must be our greatest ally.'
Laerdan has been lost within the once-proud halls of Barad Tironn, and now the Dúnedain must prevent Amarthiel from acting on the knowledge she gained by her use of the palantír.
Torogethir is at a small camp just west of the Evendim Gate to the Fields of Fornost, north-east of Tinnudir. Glathoniel has a camp on a small rise overlooking the Barandalf, south-east of Tinnudir and east of the Shire-village of Dwaling.
Calenglad has asked you to bring news of possible movements of the Angmarim out of Evendim to Torogethir and Galthoniel, the Rangers tasked with guarding the road.
Calenglad is at the Ranger-camp on the island of Tinnudir, in Evendim.
You have told what Calenglad has guessed of Amarthiel's plans to the Rangers Torogethir and Galthoniel, and they will remain vigilant for any sign of Angmarim moving out of Evendim.
