|Walkthrough & Notes|
'We face many fell foes in this dark place. Though the strength of the Enemy is weakened, so, too, is it strengthened by the discovery of this great ruse. Now, we learn that the dark tower standing amidst the forces within the forsaken valley to our south teams with enemies long kindling flames from a place I shall not speak of.
'It falls to you, <name>, to gather your allies and make an assault on Barad Gúlaran, to stand against the horrors awakened within the dark citadel. One horror, Wisdán, once a man in service to Angmar, sacrificed his life to watch over Barad Gúlaran. Lore-masters dispatched from Esteldín brought us all we know of him and Barad Gúlaran. Little is known beyond his service to the Witch-king and his close ties with the Shadow in the North. It is possible that he is a sorcerer, like a few others within Barad Gúlaran.
'He must be slain, <name>, lest his darkness be used to spread evil towards the south to become the bane of all. Gather your allies together and enter Barad Gúlaran. Return to me when you have done the deed, and I will see that the Council's gifts are bestowed upon you.'
Long ago, a servant pledged himself to the Witch-king's cause. Hes service lasts to this day, and his dark embrace on Barad Gúlaran brings terror into the hearts of those fighting to unseat Shadow in the North.
Barad Gúlaran rises out of the center of Nan Gurth, south and east of Gath Forthnír.
Uidon directed you to enter Barad Gúlaran in search of Castellan Wisdán. You are to slay him and return to Uidon for your reward.
Gath Forthnír is north-west from Barad Gúlaran.
You entered Barad Gúlaran and after some time found and defeated the Castellan within his chambers. You should now return to Gath Forthnír, the hidden refuge in the north-east area of Angmar, and inform Uidon that you have defeated Castellan Wisdán.
