Shattering the Alliance
|Walkthrough & Notes|
'<name>, I have a task for you. The Orcs in Dol Dínen, to the south-east, are fortifying their position. They dig trenches, tear down trees, and are burning enough of them to cover the area in a heavy cloud of smoke and ash.
'One of our scouts, Elúr, has already headed southwards to scout. Would you be willing to join him?'
A great host of Orcs spilled through Ram Dúath, driving the Men of the North Downs from their farms. Esteldín, home of the few remaining Dúnedain of the North, was spared discovery. It is from there that the Rangers begin to plan their counter-offensive against the black tide of Angmar.
Ongbúrz Skirmishers can be found among the goblins who patrol the outskirts of the Orc-host in Dol Dínen, south-east of Esteldín.
Elúr told you about the skirmishers of the Ongbúrz tribe, and has asked you to slay them in hopes that the army at Dol Dínen will be deterred.
