|Walkthrough & Notes|
'When Fornost sent forth the call, Ost Heryn did not answer. She remained dormant, allowing the fortress of the North Downs to fall to the Enemy. That decision rested solely with its commander.
'He has paid dearly for his decision that day. His spirit stands before the doorway into Ost Heryn, ever watchful of all around. He has never been allowed to stop or rest. The more I watch him the more I pity him...punished for eternity for a decision made in a moment ages ago.
'I feel he has paid his due and wish to end his penance. For this to be done, I believe that he must share in the fate that Fornost suffered on that dire day: he must taste the pain of the defeat himself.'
