Bestowal dialogue

'If I am to speak openly against Isengard, I need evidence that the half-orcs serve Saruman. We do not wish to kneel to Orthanc, but there is much fear of what will happen if we do not.

'With true evidence of Isengard's involvement in these attacks, I and many of my people will be free to speak our anger and deny Saruman the easy submission he expects of us.

'If you can find some sign of Isengard's involvement with the raiders in Nan Laeglin, that will give me all that I need.'


Half-orc raiders from the mountains have attacked a number of small farmholds around Nan Laeglin. Guladus Brehures suspects that forces from Isengard may be behind the attacks, but she needs evidence before she dares speak openly of it in council.

Objective 1

Half-orcs can be found throughout Nan Laeglin, especially where they have raided Uch-lûth farmsteads.

There must be some bosses driving the half-orc raiders into Nan Laeglin. It is possible that among them one may be carrying equipment with the sigils of Isengard upon it.

Guladus Brehures: 'Find evidence of Isengard's involvement in the half-orc raids, and I shall speak out against Saruman the White.'
You have discovered a helm of the White Hand
You have discovered a sword of the White Hand

Objective 2

Guladus Brehures is at the Brenin's Hall in Lhanuch.

Having found gear bearing the sign of the White Hand upon the half-orcs raiding Nan Laeglin, you may return to Guladus Brehures with the evidence she needs to speak out against Isengard in the Council of Brehur.

Guladus Brehures: 'This is it then. Now we know for certain that Isengard has set these devils upon us to force us to heel.
'Neither I, nor nay among my fellows who dare count themselves Men shall speak in favour of this emissary from Orthanc.
'I do not know what the future holds for us, Duvodiad -- it may be that in a season's time all of Enedwaith shall be burned and barren -- but at least we shall die as stalwarts and not as cowards.'
