'I found this broken tablet within the crypts of the Lost Temple, Name, and it reveals more commands of the gaunt-lord Gortheron. The missing section seems to be addressed to Ferndur, for I see several mentions of the Red Cloud, but most of the directives for Drugoth are intact.

'Drugoth is commanded to go to Forochel, and to assemble an army of wights from Sari-surma, the Isle of Death, with which to sweep south into the populated lands of Eriador. Gortheron's displeasure is clear: it seems that his servant Ivar was given the task of raising an army of wights, but failed to do so, and now it falls to Drugoth.

'It was Drugoth that sought to threaten Rivendell with the terror of the dragon Thorog, and though he was cast out of the dragon, somehow Drugoth has returned. He has gone to Sari-surma in Forochel, and you must find him and end this scheme of his master.'


Elrond's examination of the tablet he found in the Lost Temple has revealed the objective of another of the Gaunt-lords.
