Bestowal dialogue

'Akashpug, the leader of Târ Stazg is no half-orc; he is one of Saruman's Uruk-hai, and he is more cunning and cruel than any other of his kind I have encountered.

'Already, he has brought up reinforcements from the South to replace those that were slain in our first assault on his camp. If we do not act quickly, he will soon be marching to Barad Morlas.

'Return to Târ Stazg, north-east of Echad Dúnann, along the mountains before the Redhorn Gate. Use the horn of challenge you find there to call him forth. If you are able to defeat him, the half-orcs will be thrown into disarray, and we will have time to prevent their march.'

Background

Your foray into Târ Stazg has had the opposite effect as intended: Târ Stazg is readying an assault against the Elves of Eregion.

Akashpug, Chief of Târ Stazg says, "More elf-rabble? Why didn't you wait with the others?"
Akashpug, Chief of Târ Stazg says, "We have our orders, we are to move against the elf-ruins before the week is out."
Akashpug, Chief of Târ Stazg says, "But if you insist on dying now, you may have your wish!"
Akashpug, Chief of Târ Stazg says, "Ah, time for a bit of sport!"
Akashpug, Chief of Târ Stazg says, "The General will avenge me!"

Objective 2

Palanaer is in Echad Dúnann, south-west of Târ Stazg.

You should return to Palanaer with news of Akashpug's defeat.

'We must now take thought on how to drive the remaining half-orcs from Eregion.'
