When you opened Gift for a Master you found a letter. Reading it started this quest.


Terrible things have been happening in our little border town, and I am afraid that the mayor is powerless. I am not looking to start trouble for him, but the people here are frightened, and I heard your name from a few friends in Michel Delving...I thought I would write to you.

Might you come and talk with me?

Hal Gamgee


A hobbit penned a message that reached you. In it, the hobbit requested that brave souls make their way to the town of Oatbarton, north of the Brockenborings and bordering Evendim.
