    Laerdan (Rivendell)
    The Last Homely House


'The Last Homely House is fast becoming a prison to me. I do not feel welcome here. Yet on the other hand, I do not feel right leaving just yet. I fear if I leave these halls, I will never return, and I would not leave in such bitterness.

'Perhaps you would take up my search, until such time that I can leave here in good conscience? I know a dwarf who trades in the southern reaches of Forochel. Perhaps he might have some insight as to where you should begin the search.

'You can find Dáthi at Kauppa-kohta in Taur Orthon. He knows more about Forochel -- if such could be said about anyone -- than I.'


A shadow of doubt hangs over Laerdan, and he fears to leave Rivendell in search of Narchuil.

Objective 2
