|Walkthrough & Notes|

Yet once that was done, his master desired greatly that you visit him again on the Peaceful Path, located in the Mustering Hall, east of Sulnul-dûm and west of the Stone Hall, here along Durin's Way. The entrance to the Peaceful Path is north-east of Buzun-ghâr.
'If you will allow me this, <name>, I must tell you that Bróin has not been the same since you returned him to us; it is no fault of his own, for he endured much in the watery den of the Watcher, curse its name, but the son of Brogur may be now a little touched in the head. And then to lose his cousin Bori to the forces of Mazog! It cannot have helped.
'Treat him kindly and with patience, <name>, but if the requests he makes of you seem a little peculiar, you will at least know the cause.'
