' <name>, I have news of Radagast, but I must ask you once again for assistance here. The letter you recovered from Bleakrift speaks of the Orcs' true goals: taking control of Amon Sûl under cover of night and will move in a large group, establishing small units along the paths from that larger force.
'We cannot stand against the force when they are assembled, but we can once they are splintered. They wish to establish a base that will allow them a vantage over the entirety of the Lone-lands. We must foil their plans, <name>!
'Return to me when you are ready. Together we shall scale Amon Sûl and defeat Rigûl, their leader, before he can carry out his master's will!'
