Bestowal dialogue

'Greetings, [name]. I fear that with all that has been happening in recent months we have been remiss in our own defence...just recently a small group of Orc-scouts were slain by our Rangers on the very doorstep of Esteldín. I need not tell you that it is only the secrecy of Esteldín that protects it from the full brunt of Angmar's assault. We cannot take any further risks!

'I need you to patrol the lands immediately surrounding Esteldín and report back to me with any movements the Enemy makes.

'I would stay clear of the large Orc-camp at Dol Dínen if I were you -- we have already lost too many scouts there, and I cannot afford to lose any more.'

Objective 5

Handarod is at Esteldín in the North Downs.

You should report to Handarod and tell him what you have seen during your patrol around Esteldín.

Handarod: 'So, we continue to be surrounded by enemies -- though the enemies that most concern me are those who lie to the east of us, as the Orcs continue to stream down out of the Ram Dúath.
'In time, they will find us -- I only hope we are ready by then.'
