|Walkthrough & Notes|
'I am afraid that speaking with the Gauredain is unlikely to buy us anything -- they are very nearly feral creatures, and the influence of the Orcs means they are unlikely to look upon Elves such as myself kindly at all.
'If they discover us here there is every likelihood that they will attempt to drive us out -- and while neither Longbough nor I would allow it, to have such bloodshed occur on our very doorstep would wound Lithuifin deeply, and I would not wish to involve him so.
'I would ask you to hunt down some small number of their hunters and warriors that have wandered south of the river -- not so many as to cause them grievous hurt, but enough to warn them that these lands are not theirs, nor are they welcome here. It would also be best if you could find one of their leaders, for such tribes are often deeply superstitious and the loss of such a leader can set them aback greatly in fear.'
Erchiel has asked you to defeat several of the Gauredain in order to frighten them and keep them from exploring further south.
Erchiel has asked you to defeat a number of Gauredain in order to instill in them a healthy fear of the forests.
The Gauredain she speaks of can be found in the forests north of the river that passes by the Eavespires.
Erchiel is at the Eavespires on the north-west shore of Lake Evendim.
You should return and tell Erchiel of your forays against the Gauredain.
