Bestowal dialogue

'The main route between Carn Dûm and Ram Dúath, which leads to the southern lands, bears much Angmarim traffic. Messengers and patrols move along this path, winding through the haunted ways of Imlad Balchorth.

'Perhaps because of the dread of that place, the traffic through Imlad Balchorth is lightly-guarded. I would ask you to find the Angmarim patrols and messengers and waylay them, bearing back any orders they carry, along with any wealth in the form of pay-boxes they may be carrying.

'I know this speaks of mere brigandry, but on the one hand, the loss of those orders may delay war-like plans of the Angmarim and Orcs already in the North Downs...and on the other hand, without those funds, their trade with some of the less-reputable merchants of the south and east may be affected, and their own men may be unwilling to move if they are not paid. So in this case, to be a highwayman may not be such a bad thing.'

Background

Objective 2

  • Bring the orders and money-box back to Birgir

Angmarim patrols can be found on the roads in Imlad Balchorth, west of Myrkworth.

Birgir has asked you to waylay Angmarim patrols and recover any orders or money-boxes they may be carrying.

Birgir: 'Very good. If nothing else, this money allows me to offer you a reward! Perhaps more important are these orders. They could possess valuable information about troop dispositions in the North Downs.
'I will make sure to look over these orders and make sure they find their way to the Rangers of Esteldín.'
