|Walkthrough & Notes
Captain-General Daerdan: 'A summons arrived here by raven this morning, <name>, calling you to the House of Elrond, far to the east. I do not know why Elrond Halfelven requests the presence of a halfling, but it must be for some errand of importance if he troubles to send ravens on the wing here to Echad Garthadir.
'It is most peculiar, <name>. Have your people had dealings with Elrond Halfelven before this? In any event, you will find the House of Elrond far to the east, in the hidden vale of Rivendell, beyond the Trollshaws.'
'Go inside and speak with Master Elrond in his library. I wonder on what business you have been summoned?'
Fimreg: '<name>, may I have a word with you? Master Elrond requests your presence in Rivendell on a matter of some urgency. His messenger did not reveal the reason for this summons, but said only that Elrond has need now of you. It is most odd for a halfling to receive such a summons!
'Travel along the eastern road beyond the Trollshaws to the hidden vale of Rivendell and speak with Elrond in his house.'
Nogmeldir: '<name>, I have a message for you: Master Elrond requests your presence in Rivendell on a matter of some urgency. His messenger did not reveal the reason for this summons. It is most odd for a halfling to be called in this way, and I cannot fathom the reason for it.
'Descend from the mountains and return to the vale of Rivendell that you might speak with Elrond in his house.'
Hobbits generally stay in the Shire, never wandering far from their homes, but occasionally there are...exceptions.
Elrond waits to speak with you in the library of his house in Rivendell.
Elrond Halfelven has summoned you to speak with him on some urgent matter.
Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, and Peregrin Took can be found in Bilbo's room on the first floor of Elrond's house.
Elrond has asked that you aid Frodo, Sam, and Pippin with their preparations. As you are of their kind, you may be able to lend them courage for the dangerous secret journey that awaits them.
Elrond is in the library of his house in Rivendell.
You have aided the hobbits with their preparations and should now return to Elrond.
