"Amdir's defeat shattered the back of the Blackwolds, but pieces of the mystery remain unsolved...."

Background

You have travelled with Constable Underhill of Combe into the cave that the Blackwolds once used as a hideout.

Objective 1

Constable Underhill travelled with you to the cave hideout of William Skunkwood, the former leader of the Blackwolds in the area of Combe. Skunkwood is dead, as well as a good many other brigands, but you must be certain they have not begun to muster their strength again.

Constable Underhill: 'Goodness, this place is quiet as a tomb! I wish we could just say all was peaceful and leave, but I suppose we need to do a better job of it than that.
'All right, no use putting off what must be done. Come along! And make sure you have your blade at the ready, in case we run into any trouble.'

Objective 2

  • Defend Constable Underhill

Constable Underhill travelled with you to the cave hideout of William Skunkwood, the former leader of the Blackwolds in the area of Combe. Skunkwood is dead, as well as a good many other brigands, but you must be certain they have not begun to muster their strength again.

Constable Underhill says, "Careful now friend. All manner of things could be living here now!"
Constable Underhill says, "Hold a moment, I have the key right here."
Constable Underhill says, "I hope that was the last of them..."
Constable Underhill says, "Let's press on!"
Constable Underhill says, "That looks to be the last of them!"
Constable Underhill says, "Let's press on!"
Constable Underhill says, "I hope that was the last of them..."
Constable Underhill says, "Let's press on!"
Skorgrím says, "Fool, you should choose your friends more carefully!"
Skorgrím says, "The White Hand will not have you, Blackwold!"
Skorgrím says, "Amdir was just the beginning."
Skorgrím says, "You have one chance to beg my forgiveness...."
Constable Underhill says, "Quiet...I see something ahead...."
Constable Underhill says, "Let's wait here a moment, and see what happens...."
Skorgrím says, "This is your last chance."
Skorgrím says, "Swear fealty to Angmar once more!"
Blackwold Leader says, "Never!"
Skorgrím says, "Then die!"
Blackwold Leader says, "Aaah!"
Dourhand Turncoat says, "My lord! Intruders!"
Skorgrím says, "What! Deal with them!"
Constable Underhill says, "Oh dear...."
Constable Underhill says, "Check on that poor man!"
You have protected Constable Underhill

Objective 3

  • Speak to the brigand

In one of the deeper chambers of the Blackwolds hideout, you encountered the mysterious dwarf threatening a brigand. The dwarf gravely wounded the brigand, then fled, commanding his dwarves to attack you.

Constable Underhill has asked you to speak to the wounded brigand.

Constable Underhill says, "I'll follow after that strange dwarf fellow!"
Constable Underhill says, "Now, let's see...."
Blackwold Leader: 'Ye couldn't have come a moment earlier, could ye? Afore that dwarf stuck me through, maybe? Oh well, suppose that's just the way of it.
'First it was that Éogan, saying that if we pledged to Angmar, we'd be made rich. Well, when that all fell apart, a few of us decided we didn't want anything to do with Angmar anymore. We started talking to some new fellows, men who came up from the south. An ugly bunch, they were, but at least they didn't seem likely to go raising fell spirits or some such on us!
'Seems though Angmar didn't like the prospect...of us leaving them. That...that dwarf came along, and you see how that ended. Now, I suppose the Blackwolds are at...their end....'
Blackwold Leader says, "Augh...."

Objective 3

  • Speak to Constable Underhill

The dying brigand revealed that the Blackwolds were being paid by both someone from the south and agents of Angmar. When he tried to reform the band without allegiance to either, the Pale Dwarf struck him down. You should speak with Constable Underhill about this.

Constable Underhill says, "Bah!"
Constable Underhill says, "I've no idea how he escaped this place! We'll never follow him now!"
Constable Underhill: 'Well, it seems that strange dwarf escaped. How he got out of here is a mystery to me! And from what you said of the brigand's tale, that dwarf was the one we should have been worried about, not these Blackwolds.
'Well, I suppose the Blackwolds are truly broken now...but for some reason I still don't feel safe! Well, there's not much more we can do here. You'd best take tidings back to your Ranger friend in Bree.'
Constable Underhill: 'It's best that we leave this place.'
