|Walkthrough & Notes|
'As if we'd not enough to deal with here, it seems that a few of Rivendell's scouts have gone awry, somewhere east of here, up in the High Pass. A pair of them that passed through some few weeks ago said there were rumours that a new Great Goblin has arisen in Goblin-town and were going to see if they were true...and make trouble for them if they were.
'Well, there's trouble a-plenty up in these mountains without a pair of flighty Elves stirring up more, mark my words but go they did, and we've not heard aught from them since. One of my folk by the name of Eywind -- so they ought to be fine.
'Now that I think about it, Eywind is a bit of a hot-head himself. He went tagging along with the others as he fancied he would find a bit more adventure up in the High Pass, as he put it, so maybe it would be best if you did go take a look and see if they're all right....'
Vighar Roadwalker has told you of a trio of scouts sent forth from Rivendell and passed through his camp some weeks ago to scout the eastern reaches of the Misty Mountains, as they rise up into the High Pass. These three -- the Elves Nogmeldir and Glorwen and the dwarf Eywind -- have been tasked with determining the strength of Goblin-town, where it has been rumoured that a new Great Goblin has taken the throne, and may be preparing for war against settlements on either side of the Misty Mountains.
Find Eywind and his companions in the High Pass, through the passage that runs past Pinnath Fenui and through Cirith Daur to the east.
