|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Auti and I came here despite our fellows' requests for us to stay, and I feel bad we left them behind. But, we didn't agree the area those Orcs were mining was the richest source of ore in the Redhorn. We thought the untapped veins in this cavern were more likely to produce mithril ore. I hope we find what we seek, or we may never hear the end of it!
'I need you to help me scout the hive for good prospecting locations. Knowing those locations will help, if we can someday clear the path through this hive.'
Two members of the dwarven fellowship out of Orc-watch left for the southern cavern of the Redhorn Lodes. They didn't expect this cavern to house such an impressive and imposing grodbog hive that may be more dangerous than the Orcs' mining operations.
Claw Hollow, The Chittering Hole, and The Great Hive have untapped deposits which seem to attract the gredbyg.
The gredbyg have grown out of control in the south of the Redhorn Lodes. Their hive is enormous, and was built upon many untapped deposits of ore. It is likely this tunnel could be the best location for mithril prospecting in all of Moria!
Kúli and Auti are camped on the northern edge of the enormous grodbog hive.
Kúli is interested in determining good mining locations within the hive. He is hoping that some day the grodbog hive won't be as dangerous, and that mining those places will be possible.
