'It is not like Avorthal to be late -- at least not without sending word -- nor to put aside his usual habits. Still, he has spent much time in contemplation in recent days.
'When Avorthal desires solitude for quiet thought, he spends much time beneath the white trees in this vale. Perhaps he is amongst them now, unbeknownst to anyone. Would you go there and find him? I would of course, but I shall not defy the will of the elves.
'Make your way into the vale of Nen Hilith and search for any signs of Avorthal. I pray you find him hale and hardy, but if not, perhaps you will find some sign of him -- even just his pack.'
Athal is now concered about Avorthal as he missed not only the meeting with his friend, but is late to visit his father, Cardavor. Before causing greater worry to Cardavor, Athal has asked that you search for signs of Avorthal at his favorite spots within the vale of Nen Hilith.
Deliver Avorthal's Satchel to Athal at Nen Hilith
You discovered a leather satchel near the body of a slain goblin. Unclear if this is Avorthal's pack you should bring it to Athal at the camp on the north edge of Nen Hilith.
Athal explained that Avorthal enjoys the quiet of the vale of Nen Hilith. He suggested that you search beneath the white trees for either the elf or his pack.
Bring the satchel to Cardavor
Cardavor is at Celondim northeast of the vale of Nen Hilith. Deliver the pack to him there.
You went to Nen Hilith and there found the dwarf Athal waiting for his friend Avorthal. After a short disucssion you went into Nen Hilith to search for the missing elf and discovered his pack alongside a fallen goblin.
The satchel is found in Tham Gelair at 29.2S, 95.5W on the floor near a dead goblin.
