'You think I should travel south with the Grey Company to come to the aid of Aragorn? He is my chieftain, and it is my duty to see that he comes safely to the end of his road, wherever it lies...but I fear for the folk of the Shire in my absence. How will they protect themselves from the evils that crowd their borders from all sides?'
Halros looks about his camp with new resolve.
Name. There is strength in these hobbits yer, and if they need to repel dangers from outside, they will do so. My fate must lie on the southern road. I will stand with Aragorn, and that is the way I will protect the people of this land.
'Thank you for helping me make up my mind, Name I will go with the Grey Company. The good folk of the Shire will need to do without my help. Can you travel to the inn at Brokenorings and tell my friend Lotho Sackville-Baggins that I will be leaving? He is visiting Brockenborings for a few days and showed some interest in my comings and goings.'
The Ranger Halros is having trouble deciding whether to stay in the Shire and keep watch over the hobbits or to travel south with the Grey Company.
Halros has decided to travel south with the Grey Company and wants you to tell his friend Lotho of his decision.
You have delivered Halros's message to Lothlo and should return now to the Ranger.
