|Walkthrough & Notes|
'The Orcs' numbers are great, but so are their troubles. Surely, a leader of some sort must be among them, and it is he who must be found. Perhaps this Orc carries some sort of plan or orders, brutish as their kind may be. The forces of the White Hand chose a strange place to stage their assault of Byre Tor and the other halls of my kin, I am... curious... what their purpose here might be.
'I must admit, <name>, I am fearful that he may be guarded by the strongest of his number. If we are to learn the Orcs' purpose here, you must discover any missives he bears, but care must be taken, lest you lay down your life foolishly. I would ask that you lure him from the road into the shadows, for it is there his death might go unnoticed.
'Take heed of my warning, <name>. We would surely be lost already without your aid, and... be safe, friend.'
