Gilminuial is a Ranger ship which sails up and down the river Baranduin, providing supplies to the Wardens of Annúminas in the North. Yearly (around September 19) a great storm falls upon the ship and throws its crew and cargo overboard. The ship with Captain Aranhir blows on and is stranded within Barandalf. Further south, about the area of Buckland, the cargo is scattered along the shores and crew-members Argirion and Mindambeth are found safe. However, they are eager to hear from their captain and happily bartering stored items for cargo.


Event runs yearly around International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19th). In 2020, the quest is active from 18-20 September both days included.
