    Barnavon Mine


'You know by now that Saruman of Many Colours seeks to sway the clans of Dunland to wage war against the Horse-lords of Rohan. Here in Barnavon, my people -- the People of the Ox -- have pressed the last remnant of the Boar-clan into service in the mine, extracting ore to make weapons and gear for Saruman's allies.

'It is an abuse that Madin Brenin will come to rue, I believe, for it goes against what his grandfather stood for when he granted refuge to the Boar-clan. However, should the mines cease to be worked, it will go poorly for the Turch-luth -- the Boar-clan. We have received word of troubles there, and the miners are frightened. If something is not done soon, I fear the backs of the Boar-clan will feel the Brenin's wrath.

'The Barnavon Mine is the second place where I asked you to seek for signs of Warg-riders...will you help with this?'


Word has come to Barnavon of troubles at the mine.
