|Walkthrough & Notes|
'You are fortunate. The creature which you faced could not have been a true Onod. [non-High Elf: You could not possibly have faced the might of one of the Old Ones.] [ High Elf: While you might have faced the might of one of the Old Ones, the light that shines within you should have made such a one desire not to fight.]
'[non-High Elf: Nor would you have to] [High Elf: Even so, you should not have found it necessary], for the Onodrim are friendly to the Free Peoples on the rare occasion their paths meet. The great forests are less-travelled now than they were in days past, and few now ever see one of the great tree-herds.
'A small company of Elves from Mirkwood came to Imladris to consult with my father. Perhaps one of them will know what manner of creature you faced. Speak with my father to arrange an audience.'
Elladan is greatly concerned about the evil that seems to grow from deep within the Trollshaws and knows that you cannot face it alone.
Master Elrond is at Imladris, far east of Elladan's camp of Thorenhad and above the Bruinen.
Elladan has asked that you speak with his father about arranging an audience with the visiting Elves from Mirkwood, who might have some experience with creatures of the manner which you encountered.
Legolas is in one of the guest rooms along the road that winds up the southern slope of the Vale of Imladris.
Master Elrond has told you of an Elf-prince named Legolas, currently staying in Imladris for a time. He hails from Mirkwood and may have some knowledge of the creature you faced in the Trollshaws.
