Protectors of Thangúlhad
"What was once an important fortification of the Enemy is now held by a small band of Elves. Unfortunately, the Enemy is marching there in force. Fortunately, some of the ballistae and catapults still function...."

The enemy leader is approaching: a fearsome Olog-hai. Rodelleth wishes to discuss the final battle-plan with you.

Mazaukal says, "Thangúlhad will be mine!"
Mazaukal says, "More will follow..."
Mazaukal says, "This cannot be..."
Rodelleth says, "Thangúlhad remains in the hands of the Golden Hosts and Dol Guldur remains within striking."
Rodelleth says, "It is a great victory and one you should celebrate long. Thank you for your aid my friends."
Rodelleth: 'You have aided me greatly. They picked an excellent time to strike, while our patrols were out. Were it not for you, this forward position would have been lost.'
