Hillmen of the North
|Walkthrough & Notes|
'The Hillmen encamped at the eastern entrance of the Ram Dúath pass have me concerned.
'These are men who long ago foreswore their allegiance to Angmar, after the Witch-king was defeated, and have never united beneath a single banner since. That they should now serve under the banner of Angmar is troubling, but that they should guard the pass into Angmar is alarming.
'Before we can know best how to deal with them, we need to know their strength. These Hillmen often wear brooches by which they distinguish one another. Collect these brooches, so that I may determine what is the composition of their ranks.'
Hillmen from Angmar followed the Orc army through Ram Dúath into the North Downs and established an encampment near the head of the pass. These Hillmen serve to keep open the passage from Angmar.
The Hillmen are encamped near the mouth of the eastern entrance to Ram Dúath, north-east of Esteldín.
You should collect brooches from the Hillmen, so that the composition of their forces may be determined.
Melthindir stands outside of Esteldín, looking out onto eastern Nan Amlug.
You should return to Melthindir with the brooches you collected.
