|Walkthrough & Notes|
'<name>, I have received urgent missives from both the Queen Regent of Dale and the King Under the Mountain regarding the Weeping Warrior.
'In their own words, they delivered the same troubling tidings. If he has not returned to the Dale-lands himself, his agents must now work their ruin on his behalf. His Men of Mordor have gone to Esgaroth-of-old, and they to seek to unleash some new wickedness among the bones of Smaug.
'We believe that he seeks more of Smaug's bones for his supposed magics, but none of us know the truth of this matter. I ask that you go to Esgaroth-of-old and learn what plot Karazgar has devised for the peoples of the North.
'If you discover that Karazgar has returned to the Dale-lands, do not think to confront him alone! We have armies enough for a single Man, be he deathless or no.'
Upon the bones of Esgaroth-of-Old, the designs of Karazgar are at last revealed.
Esgaroth-of-old can be found to the east of Eryn Lasgalen on the banks of the Long Lake.
Thranduil has learned that Karazgar's agents have returned to Esgaroth-of-old, and he seeks to learn more of the Weeping Warrior's plot against the North.
Slain drakelings can be found near the bones of Smaug in Esgaroth-of-old.
You have discovered the smuggled drakelings laid bare in Esgaroth-of-old as a means to incite the ire of the Herald of Winter.
Karazgar might be found somewhere in Esgaroth-of-old.
You should search for Karazgar in Esgaroth-of-old. He might be found near the bones of Smaug.
The path of slain Men can be found along the broken bridge to Esgaroth-of-old.
You have not found any sign of the Weeping Warrior, but you discovered a path of slain Men leading down the old bridge of Esgaroth. You should see where it leads.
The cold-drake can be found amid the bones of Smaug in Esgaroth-of-old.
You have not found Karazgar, but a dying cold-drake stares towards the bones of Smaug from the old bridge. You should examine the cold-drake.
King Thorin III can be found in the Hall Under the Mountain.
A cold-drake has delivered a chilling threat against the people of the North. You should warn King Thorin III.
