'I will send word to Mathi Stouthand and Gailthin in Gondamon of Avorthal's safe return and to warn their masters. The Free Peoples of Ered Luin must unite if they are to drive Skorgrim and his goblin allies from this land.

'While Lord Dwalin and Master Dorongur assemble their forces, I have an urgent task for you, Name. The goblins have mustered in Rath Teraig, and if we are to have any hope of reaching Skorgrim, we must thin their ranks.

'Journey into Rath Teraig, the valley south of Gondamon, and defeat as many of the goblins there as you can. If we can reduce their numbers sufficiently, Dwalin and Doronogur may have a greater chance for victory.'


With the release of Avorthal, the threat of war between the Dwarves of Gondamon and the Elves of Duillond has been averted, but the dangers posed to both kindreds remain, embodied by Skorgrim's Dourhands and the goblin-army they have raised.


Objective 1

  • Talk to Ingolfr outside Rath Teraig
  • Make your way along the road toward Gondamon and turn south toward the valley of Rath Teraig. Speak with Ingolfr the dwarf at the barricade there.

    Langlas directed you to speak with the dwarf Ingolfr at the outskirts of the valley of Rath Teraig.

    Objective 2

  • Defeat melee goblins in Rath Teraig (0/8)
  • Defeat ranged goblins in Rath Teraig (0/8)
  • Langlas has sent word to Mathi Stouthand and Gailthin to begin preparations for an assault on Skorgrim's goblin-army in Rath Teraig. As well, he instructed you to begin thinning the enemy forces there.

    Objective 1

  • Talk to Langlas
  • Langlas is at the hunter's lodge, east of Gondamon.

    You have prepared the way for the assault on Rath Teraig, as Langlas had instructed you. You should return to Langlas with news of your success.
