|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Hullo there. Maybe you can help me out. We're in a bit of a bind here. This is the last farm in the North Downs -- all of the other landowners have been run off their places by the Orcs.
'I don't mind saying that the Orcs who've moved into the area are more than I can handle on my own. I've made ties with a few of them Rangers and been helping provision them for a good many years. It's about time they did me a good turn for it.
'Now, I don't know where he goes with it, but I take their goods to a Ranger who camps out near those old ruins to the north-west of my farm. Ost Lagoros is what they call it, I think. The fellow's name is Orthonn.'
Orcs have entered the North Downs from the north. The farmers of the region fled south, except old Gatson, who is determined to hold his land against the Orcs.
Orthonn may be found at the ruins of Ost Lagoros, north-west of Gatson's farm by the river.
Farmer Gatson told you that he has been helping the Rangers with provisions for many years and now expects them to help him protect his farm. He has sent you to speak with the Ranger he delivers the food to, a man named Orthonn.
Gatson awaits you at his farm to the east of Ost Lagoros.
Orthonn admitted that Gatson had provisioned them often, but told you that the Rangers did not have the numbers to defend the farms of the North Downs. He asked you to return to Gatson and exhort the farmer and his workhands to flee at once.
