|Walkthrough & Notes|
'I spoke briefly with Halbarad, and if I had business within Isengard before now I count it double. We must find if Lothrandir still lives within the Ring, <name>. Let Gandalf speak with Saruman for weeks, if that is his desire; my thoughts are of my kinsman. I have not seen him for many years, but Lothrandir has been a friend for longer than that and I will not abandon him.
'Let us ride along the road to Isengard! I am most curious to see what it is we will find.'
