'According to these plans of battle, sorcerers under the tutelage of Gorothul are seeking to draw fell spirits to the service of the armies of Dol Guldur. This is not the first we have heard of this, but it supports the words of Sulthel, a Malledhrim scout who passed this way when returning to Ost Galadh.

'This foul craft of the Enemy cannot be permitted. Travel south and east into the Ashenslades and seek out Sad Doldur. Defeat any of the fell spirits the sorcerers there have already bound to their service. Defeat too the students of Gorothul and seize the spell tome with which they work their evil.

'None of these sorcerers will have Gorothul's skill, but they will still be dangerous foes. Underestimate none of the Enemy's forces.'
