Stirrings Within Helegrod
|Walkthrough & Notes|
'The keep of Helegrod has stood empty for years beyond count, <name>, but now it has become home to worm and drake, a vile warren filled with many clutches of eggs and guarded by the watchful eyes of the great beasts.
'Few of the Corcur or Angmarim that we have spied from afar seem willing to brave the stronghold. Perhaps the fire-breath of the creatures keeps the Men at bay, or they are under some command not to disturb the beasts. One of the Angmarim, a man of great importance, seems to have no fear of the worms or drakes and passes often through the doors of the keep. It is curious.
'But we do not have the time to muse on such things! Ormulf Worm-hunter, a dwarf of Othrikar on the North Downs, should be told of the infestation of worms and drakes that lurk now within the keep of Helegrod. He will know how best to fight the creatures. Go with haste, and leave the mystery of the Angmarim worm-friend to Greip and myself!'
Sigrun told you of Ormulf Worm-hunter, a dwarf at Othrikar renowned for his brave deeds against the worms and drakes that stalk the crevices of the North Downs.
Ormulf Worm-hunter is at Othrikar, far to the west in the north-central North Downs.
Sigrun has seen from afar that the keep of Helegrod appears to be crawling with worms and drakes and has asked you to consult with Ormulf Worm-hunter about what must be done.
