|Walkthrough & Notes|
'What an excellent find, <name>. These folk from Angmar sound like evil foes, but at least we know what we are up against....
'The plans also show a map that points to the Old East Path, which is just near here. We all avoid that path save for Atli Spider-bane, a visitor from east of the Misty Mountains.
'Speak with Atli and learn what he can tell you about the path. We can use the path to our advantage if we manage to successfully scout it.'
The Blackwold-plans you collected reveal that the brigands, guided by the evil forces of Angmar, mean to attack under the cover of shadow by the Old East Path, which is overrun by spiders.
Atli Spider-bane stands outside the Hunter's Lodge.
You should speak with Atli Spider-bane and learn what you can about the Old East Path.
The Old East Path cuts into the large hill west of the Hunting Lodge.
You should explore the Old East Path to see how it can be used to get an advantage over the Blackwolds when they attack.
Jon Brackenbrook is at the Hunter's Lodge in the north-east corner of Archet.
You should tell Jon Brackenbrook of the dead end and the slaughtered Blackwold scout at the end of the Old East Path.
