    Southern Barrow-downs
    The Great Barrow


'The Age of the Elves is over, Darqflame, and now the time has come for us to pass into the West. But ere we come at last to the Grey Havens beyond the land of the halflings, we wish to do what little we can to help against the Shadow that is once again rising in the East.

'Long ago, the Witch-king of Angmar sent many fell spirits out of Angmar and Rhudaur to turn the Barrow-downs into a place of terror, and we sense that they are again stirring. We fear that more of these spirits have come with the intent of increasing their master's horde in Bree-land. We would have you enter the Great Barrow and send these spirits back to their master. The spirits will likely be found behind a door displaying a skull.

'You will find a southward pass leading into the Barrow-downs east from here. Othrongroth, the Great Barrow, is in the southern end of that dread place. You should not enter Othrongroth alone, for it is a dark and dangerous place. Take those you can trust.'


Three Elves are journeying to the Grey Havens and have stopped in Andrath, briefly sojourning in Bree-land to help cleanse the land of an ancient corruption before passing into the West.


Objective 1
Defeat fell spirits in the Great Barrow (0/15)

There is a southward pass into the Barrow-downs, east of Adso's Camp. Othrongroth, the Great Barrow, is near the southern end of the Barrow-downs. The fell spirits can be found within Othrongroth behind a door displaying a skull.

As one last favour before leaving Middle-earth, Aradia and her companions would like to help cleanse the Shadow of Angmar from the Barrow-downs. She has asked you to enter Othrongroth and send the fell spirits which dwell there back to their master.

Objective 2
Talk to Aradia

Aradia is camped outside the Great Barrow.

You should return to Aradia with news of your success against the fell spirits of the Great Barrow.
