'<name>, if I may have a moment of your time, there is something that I have concerns about. One of my kindred, Golodir, once feared a Shadow in the North, a single banner calling the Orcs, Men, and all other evil around the ancient city of Carn Dûm. I fear that Shadow has arisen.
'The Orc-host swept through the North Downs so quickly that none had opportunity to determine their true strength. I wish to know if this is one Orc-tribe or many.
'I believe there are three tribes: One in the north-west near Fornost, one in the south-west near Trestlebridge, and the last in Dol Dínen, south-east of Esteldín. Bring me the banners that fly at the outskirts of these camps.'
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.
The banners of the Orc-tribes fly at the outskirts of their camps near Fornost at the Norbury Gates, near Trestlebridge at Nan Wathren, and Dol Dínen, south-east of Esteldín.
Daervunn fears that the Orcs of Angmar are united together for a common cause. He has asked you to bring him the banners from their primary camps to prove whether there is truth to this belief.
