|Walkthrough & Notes|
Captain-General Daerdan: 'A summons arrived here by raven this morning, <name>, calling you to the House of Elrond, far to the east. I do not know why Elrond Halfelven requests your presence, but it must be for an errand of some urgency if he sends ravens on the wing here to Echad Garthadir.
Elf, High Elf: 'I do not begrudge your people their long lives, <name>, but I wonder if you would tell your master not to forget the Race of Men. We are strong and stout of heart, though we live for a shorter span. Some would say we burn the brighter for it.
'You will find Master Elrond in his house in Rivendell, of course.'
Dwarf, Stout-axe: 'Does the Elf-lord have need now for the strength of the dwarves? That friendship has waned over the years, has it not?
'You will find the House of Elrond far to the east, in the hidden vale of Rivendell, beyond the Trollshaws.'
Nogmeldir: '<name>, I have a message for you: Master Elrond requests your presence in Rivendell on a matter of some urgency. / Elf, High Elf: His messenger did not reveal the reason for this summons, but its importance cannot be questioned. / Dwarf, Stout-axe: His messenger did not reveal the reason for this summons. It must be important if Master Elrond requires the presence of a dwarf in his house. Take no offence! I merely mark it as unusual.
'Descend from the mountains and return to the vale of Rivendell that you might speak with Elrond in his house.'
Barbethnir: 'Master Elrond wishes to speak with you, <name>, about a matter of some urgency. / Elf, High Elf: I do not know what it might be, but I understand that it affects our people directly. / Dwarf, Stout-axe: What matter concerns both Elves and dwarves, I wonder?
'Go inside and speak with Master Elrond in his library.'
Fimreg: '<name>, may I have a word with you? Master Elrond requests your presence in Rivendell on a matter of some urgency. / Elf, High Elf: His messenger did not reveal the reason for this summons, but it must be important. Our people know that Elrond does not call us to his haven without need. / Dwarf, Stout-axe: His messenger did not reveal the reason for this summons. Perhaps Elrond has need now of the strength of the dwarves? That friendship may have waned, but let it not break forever! There are too many evils abroad for dwarves and Elves to meet in anger.
'Travel along the eastern road beyond the Trollshaws to the hidden vale of Rivendell and speak with Elrond in his house. It must be important.'
The shadow of growing evil threatens even the safety of Rivendell, and all of the Free Peoples must come together to defend against it.
