|Walkthrough & Notes|
'You have done so much for me already, <name>, but there is still much that must be done if my son is to be restored. We have not had dealings with the dwarves for a very long time, and those are not pleasant memories.
'You were at Edhelion, I believe? You remember Skorgrím's final attack on the old refuge, yes? Dwarves are scheming and self-serving, not to be trusted!
'We must gather our strength to lay siege to the dwarves of Ered Luin and rescue Avorthal from their clutches, but only Dorongúr Whitethorn, the Master of Duillond has the authority to muster such a force. Bring him the news of my son, that he is alive, but a prisoner. We must strike at the dwarves before it is too late!
'Speak with Toronn at the stable before you go. He will hasten you upon your journey.'
The goblin Pampraush let slip the knowledge that Avorthal was not slain, but handed over to wicked dwarves. Cardavor was further embittered by this news and is prepared to declare open war against the dwarves of Ered Luin to reclaim his son.
Dorongúr Whitethorn can be found at the refuge of Duillond, north of Celondim.
While Cardavor is relieved that Avorthal still lives, he is prepared to wage war upon all the dwarves of Ered Luin to rescue his son. He has asked you to inform Dorongúr Whitethorn of Avorthal's captivity in hopes that Dorongúr will muster a force to reclaim the Elf-prince.
