'Thaliollang and Lagorlam are so intent upon vengeance against the Stone-trolls that they are blind to all other threats, and I fear they will not retain enough strength of will to fight the other dangers that lurk nearby.
'Orcs of the Tarkrîp clan have established a foothold in Nan Wathren, the valley to the south-west, and their scouts intrude further into Meluinen with each passing day.
'Slay any Orcs you find that have crossed into Meluinen, <name>, for they pose a great threat to Lin Giliath. You will surely find them south and south-west of here, along the line of the mountains.'
Meluinen is threatened by the presence of a large encampment of Tarkrîp Orcs in the valley to the south-west.
Orc-scouts have crept into Meluinen from the valley to the south-west of Lin Giliath.
Brethilwen has asked you to slay any Orcs you find in Meluinen, thus reducing the Tarkrîp threat.
Brethilwen is in Lin Giliath.
Brethilwen will be heartened to hear of your victory over the Orcs that had entered Meluinen.
