|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Of all those that have suffered in the North Downs, it is perhaps the people of Trestlebridge who have suffered the most. They have stood firm against all Orc attacks, but their own numbers are dwindling. In fact, the mayor of the town, Lovelle Boskins, was recently slain, and his daughter, Nellie, now leads the people there.
'I would ask you to go to Trestlebridge and speak with Nellie. We will need her leadership at the Council.
'I will give you a word of warning: although her people have the most to gain from coming, Nellie will be the hardest to convince. The constant attacks will block all thoughts of anything but dealing with the immediate threat.'
To deal with the threat from Angmar, Halbarad has decided that he must call a council of the Free Peoples of the North Downs -- the Council of Esteldín.
Nellie Boskins can be found in Trestlebridge.
Halbarad warned you that Nellie may be so consumed with the defence of Trestlebridge that she will not see the importance of coming to the Council of Esteldín.
Halbarad can be found in Esteldín.
Upon hearing your message regarding the Council of Esteldín, Nellie Boskins ardently refused to come, saying that the defence of her town was above all other concerns. You should return to Halbarad with her answer.
