Frideric asked me to meet again with Candaith. Once I reached his camp, we exchanged news and I was informed that Orcs were threatening the North Downs. Candaith asked me to travel to Esteldin and speak to a ranger named Halbarad.
It is a long journey from the Lone-Lands to the North Downs, I rode back through the Midgewater Swamp to Bree. I stopped for a short time there to re-provision and then started North along the Greenway all the way to Trestlebridge. Once at Trestlebridge I was able to rest for a short time before I continued my journey to the heart of the North Downs, Esteldin.
Halbarad told me that word has spread regarding my assistance to the rangers in the South and asked that I assist them here.
