|Walkthrough & Notes|
'I can smell death in the moss, as if it was plucked from an ancient grave. This stench of decay is not a thing from nature. I believe that the wights are to blame.
'Wights are the bones of the dead stirred by fell spirits out of Angmar and Rhudaur. The wars here long ago made Haragmar as ripe for wights as the Barrow-downs in the west. Return to Haragmar, the swamp in the east, and destroy these foul creatures.
'If there are wights, I fear there are other fell creatures haunting the swamp, as well. For now though, you need only concern yourself with the wights.
Your discovery of the wights in Haragmar, the southern reaches of the Red Swamp, alarms Radagast the Brown. He suspects the involvement of powers from Angmar.
Wights can be found deeper in Haragmar, the southern reaches of the Red Swamp, east of Ost Guruth.
Radagast sent you back into the swamp to defeat the wights that are fouling the land with their evil.
Radagast the Brown waits at the tower at the northern end of the main thoroughfare in Ost Guruth.
You should return to Radagast the Brown with the news of your battle with the wights of Haragmar.
