Bestowal dialogue

'Thank you for your aid, <name>. My kindred and I were driven from the Bounds of the Shire by the Nazgûl of Mordor. They pursued us eastward and slew many of us. It was my goal to join Amdir, but I have heard rumour of his fate in Archet. They say he was stabbed with a morgul-knife and led off by some evil men -- the ones who lent the Blackwolds aid. There are few left now with power over such wounds, and those that I know of dwell some distance from here. We must find Amdir, and quickly, if we are to save him.

'He is likely being held by the Blackwolds somewhere in the Chetwood. We must find a way to enter their lair and free him, but first we must find them. Speak with Constable Underhill...he may be of help. You can usually find him outside, near The Comb and Wattle.

'Once you have learned of the Blackwolds' lair and believe you can gain entry, return to me. Hurry, before it is too late.'


The stranger that summoned you was a kinsman of Amdir who is seeking the missing Ranger.

Objective 1

Constable Underhill can be found outside The Comb and Wattle Inn in Comb.

Toradan has asked you to speak with Constable Underhill to learn ways of finding the Blackwolds' hideout. He is certain Amdir will be found among them.

Toradan: 'You should speak with Constable Underhill near The Comb and Wattle. He may have some thoughts on how to discover the Blackwolds' hideout.'
Constable Underhill: 'Toradan sent you, did he? It's good to have the Hero of Archet on our side!' The hobbit lowers his voice. 'There's still a Blackwold agent in town. We think he's trying to rebuild the band from among the local ruffians and bullies. We need proof though. A letter or parchment would do, if it came from the agent himself.
'Many of the brigands hole up in Chetwood. Follow the road east, until you come to the guard-house, where Constable Wren is stationed. From there, head north and look for the brigands' watchfires scattered through the wood. Search their packs for signs of their summons.
'Let me know right away if you find anything... we need to know what they're up to!'

Objective 2

  • Search a Blackwold recruit's pack

Many of the scattered Blackwolds dwell in the hills east of Combe.

Following Toradan's advice, you spoke with Constable Underhill about the Blackwold brigands. The hobbit constable suggests that you search amongst the campfires of the Blackwolds to the east of Combe for one of the brigand agent's letters.

Constable Underhill: 'The Blackwolds have taken up residence in the Chetwood to the east. You had best begin your search there.'
You discovered a letter

Objective 3

Constable Underhill awaits your return near Combe centre, outside The Comb and Wattle Inn.

Searching through a pack found near a small encampment of Blackwolds, you found a letter from the Blackwold agent. You should return to Constable Underhill with the letter.

Constable Underhill: 'Hallo! What's this? Ellie Cutleaf! Well, I should have guessed. She's smart and disreputable, by all accounts... and she's just the sort who might led us to the Blackwold's agent.
'She won't lead you to this Amdir fellow, I don't think, but it's a start. We must gain access to the leader somehow. He'll have the answers we seek.'
