'We are close to finding out the intentions of the invading Orcs, friend. We need to learn what is written upon these pages. While there are none currently here in Esteldín that can decipher these notes, there is a Ranger in the North Downs who can.
'Mincham has long studied the Enemy and their Black Speech. Would you carry the orders to him at his camp in the west? He is encamped near the Fields of Fornost at the south-west edge.
'Hurry, <name>. Time is of the essence.'
A great host of Orcs spilled through Ram Dúath, driving the Men of the North Downs from their farms. Esteldín, home of the few remaining Dúnedain of the North, was spared discovery. It is from there that the Rangers begin to plan their counter-offensive against the black tide of Angmar.
Mincham has a small camp overlooking the Greenway just south of the Fields of Fornost.
Daervunn returned the orders to you and sent you to speak with Mincham, who is proficient in the Black Speech of Mordor, at his camp bordering the Fields of Fornost in the west. He hopes that Mincham will be able to translate the orders.
Daervunn awaits your return at Esteldín.
Mincham returned the orders to you and sent you back to Daervunn with his report.
