Chapter 6: The Knowledge of the Onodrim
900 Reputation with the Elves of Rivendell
'While you were searching the stone-troll caves -- a productive search! Do not be dismayed that you did not reveal the Nazg?l's location! -- I received word from Barachen in the South Trollshaws. My brother dispatched him to watch over the lands south of the road, and it seems that duty has been rewarded.
'Barachen has reported seeing one of the wandering Onodrim. If this is so, older and wiser eyes than our own may have seen the passing of the Nazg?l and could tell us much.
'Travel west along the road that runs through the South Trollshaws. Barachen has scouts along the road, and one of them can direct you to his camp. Barachen can then tell you where to find our wayward Onodrim.'
While you were searching the caves of the Trollshaws for some sign of the missing Nazg?l, Elladan heard tell of one of the Onodrim in the wilderness that might know the Rider's whereabouts.
Barachen is at his camp south of the Great East Road that runs through the South Trollshaws. Scouts along the road can direct you to him.
Elladan told you that Barachen reported seeing one of the Onodrim somewhere in the wild and wants you to talk to him about it.
One of the Onodrim, a creature of ancient days, was seen in the valley of the giants south of the High Moor, high above the Bruinen. Barachen reportedly saw the Onod standing next to some mighty trees as he came south into the valley.
Barachen reported seeing one of the Onodrim somewhere in the Trollshaws, and Elladan thinks it possible that this Onod might know something of the missing Nazg?l's whereabouts.
Elladan is at Thorenhad, his camp among the Bruinen Gorges, north of the bear-dens.
Elladan will be troubled to learn the fate of the Onod that Barachen saw in the valley of the giants.
