|Walkthrough & Notes|
'I will send word to Mathi Stouthand and Gailthin in Gondamon of Avorthal's safe return and to warn their masters. The Free Peoples of Ered Luin must unite if they are to drive Skorgrím and his goblin allies from this land.
'While Lord Dwalin and Master Dorongúr assemble their forces, I have an urgent task for you, <name>. The goblins have mustered in Rath Teraig, and if we are to have any hope of reaching Skorgrím, we must thin their ranks.
'Journey to the outskirts of Rath Teraig, the valley south of Gondamon, and speak with the dwarf there, Ingo. He will have more instructions for you. Aid him and Dwalin and Doronogúr may have a greater chance for victory.'
With the release of Avorthal, the threat of war between the Dwarves of Gondamon and the Elves of Duillond has been averted, but the dangers posed to both kindreds remain, embodied by Skorgrím's Dourhands and the goblin-army they have raised.
Make your way along the road toward Gondamon and turn south toward the valley of Rath Teraig. Speak with Ingólfr the dwarf at the barricade there.
Langlas directed you to speak with the dwarf Ingólfr at the outskirts of the valley of Rath Teraig.
