You have retrieved a piece of paper written by the hand of Saruman the White. As you read the scrap of paper, it becomes clear that you have waylaid a messenger of Angmar.

'...there is much more happening than even you can imagine, Mordirith. The Great Eye is upon us all, and all of Eriador will eventually fall. Perhaps it is time for the White Hand to join its power with mighty Angmar....'

Reading this grave news, it becomes clear that this must be shown to someone at Gath Forthnír immediately.


You have found a scrap of paper indicating that Sauraman and Angmar seek to form an alliance.


Objective 1
Talk to someone in Gath Forthnir who might know something about these pledges.

Gath Forthnír is in the eastern reaches of Angmar, beyond Rammas Deluon.

You have acquired information about Angmar's allies and plans. You should immediately inform someone at Gath Forthnír of this development.


Defeat Caran and loot the Scrap of a Half-orc Pledge from his corpse, to start this quest.

Now go speak to Brunfair at Gath Forthnir.

Also note, that all four Messengers of Carn Dum -- Caran, Fotath, Gordan & Ros walk the roads between Bail Catharnakh, Bail Dilas, & Bail Grundail in Himbar of Angmar. They have no fixed position, and are always mobile.
