'Though it will bring him no solace, we must inform Captain Trotter that the orc-tribe he faces is part of the larger horde within the North Downs. The orders you presented me specifically mention the nature of the Orcs in Nan Wathren.
'They are savages. Their tribe, the Tarkrîp -- or Man-flayers -- wish only to taste the flesh of Men, they will not cease their assaults.
'Please, make your way south to Trestlebridge and inform Captain Trotter that he should send a courier south to my brethren in the Bree-fields, they may yet have strength or influence enough to aid him.'
While the Free Peoples of the North Downs were occupied with the threat of the Orc-army in Dol Dínen, they were nearly oblivious of the second host which marched west to Fornost.
Captain Trotter leads the people of Trestlebridge, along the Greenway far to the south of the Fields of Fornost.
The town lives under constant watch and fear that Orcs of the Tarkrîp tribe will return and complete their massacre and destruction of the town. Mincham's words may sway Captain Trotter to call upon the aid of others from the south. Mincham directed you to explain the true danger of the Orc-tribe facing Captain Trotter and the besieged town of Trestlebridge.
