|Walkthrough & Notes|
'The Longbeards of Othrikar had mentioned to us recently that their wayward kin, the Dourhands, have been attempting to open mines here in the hills of Nan Amlug. Now my scouts tell me that, despite our efforts, their work is nearly complete, and they are preparing to send shipments of iron north to their allies in Angmar.
'I need you to make a foray into Nan Amlug to attack the Dourhands in and around their mines, and do as much as possible to disrupt their operations there. The last thing we want is for Angmar to gain yet another supply of metals for their armies.'
Handarod is concerned with the growing threat of the Dourhands in western Nan Amlug.
Dourhands can be found throughout the hills of western Nan Amlug, north-west of Esteldín.
Handarod has asked you to disrupt the Dourhand mining efforts in Nan Amlug.
Handarod is at Esteldín in the North Downs, south-east of Nan Amlug.
You should return to Handarod and tell him of your battles against the Dourhands.
