|Walkthrough & Notes|
'You think I should stay here in the Shire? It is true that with many of the Dúnedain leaving, these lands will likely come under threat. Who will protect the Little Folk, these hobbits I have come to admire and cherish? They have a core of strength, it is true, but the shadows are lengthening and it seems to me that they creep ever closer to the Shire.
'I have walked of a time with Aragorn and the Wizard, Gandalf, at Sarn Ford, and they both spoke oft of their love for its people. I do not think they would wish the Shire to be undefended.
'Thank you for helping me to make up my mind, <name>. I will stay here and watch over the people of the Shire. The Grey Company will need to do without my help. Can you travel to the inn at Brockenborings and tell my friend Lotho Sackville-Baggins that I have decided to stay? He is visiting Brockenborings for a few days and showed some interest in my comings and goings.'
The Ranger Halros is having trouble deciding whether to stay in the Shire and keep watch over the hobbits or to travel south with the Grey Company.
Lotho Sackville-Baggins is visiting Brockenborings and can be found inside the inn there.
Halros has decided to stay in the Shire to keep watch over its people and wants you to tell his friend Lotho of his decision.
The Ranger Halros is at his camp in the Greenfields, in the north-east corner of the Shire.
You have delivered Halros' message to Lotho and should return now to the Ranger.
