'There...did you hear that, <name>? Those blasts you're hearing in the distance...it sounds like thunder down here, but it's actually one of those fool goblins playing with something new and dangerous.
'It sounds like something that mad, old Wizard up in the Shire might have cooked up, but I don't think he would be sharing it with the goblins. No, I'd wager Saruman is behind this devilry somehow. Anyway, goblins are nasty enough with their usual toys...I don't relish fighting them armed with whatever that is.
'Let us see if we can dissuade them from using it any more....'
The goblins in the Orc-mines seem to have gotten their hands on a new weapon that is even more dangerous than the fire-pots they had previously devised...most likely some new wizardry produced by Saruman.
Goblins can be found throughout the Orc-mines

Ondor the Dwarf is in the Orc-mines.
You should return to Ondor with news of your success.
