Epic Book 11 Walkthrough: Prisoner of the Free People







By Darkgolem

Book 11 is a very low maintenance, high movement book.  You finally finish with Evendim (more or less) and move on to the Trollshaws, after some running around.  You ultimately find out who Amarthiel is, and her origin, and find out while Laerdan is acting so strange.  It really is a great story, and it is amazingly well done.  You do need a small fellowship for one part, but most of this quest otherwise really only needs yourself .

When doing this chain, if you intend to do it all by yourself, make sure to give yourself some time.. it isn't easy to complete all of this, especially the end, in one sitting.

Chapter 1: Watching the Roads
Tinnundir
12.7S, 67.2W
Laerdan has been lost within the once-proud halls of Barad Tironn, and now the Dúnedain must prevent Amarthiel from acting on the knowledge she gained by her use of the palantír.
Talk to Torgethir

Talk to Galthoniel

Torogethir is at a small camp just west of the Evendim Gate to the Fields of Fornost, north-east of Tinnudir. Galthoniel has a camp on a small rise overlooking the Barandalf, south-east of Tinnudir and east of the Shire-village of Dwaling.

Calenglad has asked you to bring news of possible movements of the Angmarim out of Evendim to Torogethir and Galthoniel, the Rangers tasked with guarding the roads.

(Author's note: Torogethir is found at 10.3S, 60.0W, on the Evendim edge of the Fields of Fornost.  Galthoniel is found near the goblin encampment outside of Dwaling in southern Evendim, at 21.0S, 62.9W.)

2. Talk to Calengrad

Calenglad is at the Ranger-camp on the island of Tinnudir, in Evendim.

You have told what Calenglad has guessed of Amarthiel's plans to the Rangers Torogethir and Galthoniel, and they will remain vigilant for any sign of Angmarim moving out of Evendim.

Calengrad
Chapter 2: Mordrambor
Tinnundir,
12.7S, 67.2W
For Narchuil, you must learn what you can about the ring from Mordrambor.
Talk to Calengrad and confront Mordrambor about Narchuil

Calenglad is at the Ranger-camp on the island of Tinnudir, in Evendim.

Calenglad has decided that you and he may learn of Narchuil's power or history by confronting Mordrambor together, and such knowledge may aid you to recover it before Amarthiel does.

(Author's note: This is a non-combat solo instance, so just go ahead through it and watch the drama.)

Calengrad
Chapter 3: Cairns for the Fallen
Tinnundir,
12.7S, 67.2W
Calenglad fears for the resolve of the Dúnedain and has set them to gathering stones with which to build cairns for their fallen brethren.
Collect Annuminas City-stones (8)

Stones from the buildings of Annúminas can be found all throughout the great city and would be ideal for constructing cairns in memory of the fallen Rangers.


Calenglad has asked you to collect stones from throughout the streets of the City of the Kings with which to make cairns for Tadan, Colhamnir, and Carchammadel.

(Author's note:  Make your way by swimming to 17.1S, 70.5W, first west all the way, then south all the way from Annuminas.

Find stones at;
17.1S, 70.5W (two, on different sides of a dome);
17.1S, 70.7W;
17.0S, 70.5W has several near it, but also a few signature and normal Angmarim.  Frankly it is easier just to wait at the first to locations for stones to repop.)

Companies of Angmarim have been seen leaving Evendim and passing into the east, heading for the Trollshaws in search of Narchuil.

Calenglad has asked you to travel to the summit of Amon Raith and to look eastward from the heights.

2. Find the Summit of Weathertop

Amon Sûl, the great hill of Weathertop, is located in the Lone-lands.

Calenglad has asked you to travel to the summit of Weathertop and to look eastward from the heights.

(Author's note: Amon Raith is east of Fornost, en route to Evendim.  The horse route takes you right by it.  It is found at location 12.5S, 52.8W.  Once there type /look, then head to Weathertop in the Lone Lands, where you should do the same thing.  Weathertop of course is at 31.3S, 36.6W.)

3. Talk to Alphlanc

Looking eastward from the summit of Weathertop, you saw a company of Angmarim crossing the Last Bridge into the Trollshaws.

You have followed a company of Angmarim eastward, and they have reached the Last Bridge before you. You should travel to the Last Bridge and speak with the scout posted there for news of the Angmarim.

(Author's note: Alphlanc is at 33.4S, 23.0W.)

4. Talk to Candelleth

Echad Candelleth is in Tâl Bruinen, south of the Ford of Bruinen. Alphlanc told you to locate the path south along the banks of the Bruinen, and to follow the path until you come across one of Candelleth's scouts, who can further guide you to the camp.

Alphlanc has told you that the Angmarim company passed into Tâl Bruinen and wants you to travel to her sister Candelleth's camp in order to warn her of the danger posed by the presence of the Angmarim.

(Author's Note: Tal Bruinen is at 37.3S, 13.9W in the Trollshaws.)

Small ruins can be found scattered throughout the wooded hills and valleys of Tâl Bruinen.

Candelleth told you that the Angmarim seem to have a great interest in the various small ruins found throughout Tâl Bruinen. While you confront several of these searching groups, she will consider places where Narchuil may have been hidden.

(Author's note: Right outside of Tal Bruinen at 35.3S, 15.5W, at 37.2S, 15.6W, and at 35.8S, 14.7W there are the Angmarim you seek.  They repop very fast but are not close enough that, if cautious, they will both attack at once.)

Candelleth has decided upon several locations within the woods of Tâl Bruinen that might hide the ring Narchuil.
Investigate Eryn Singor with Lavanthir
Investigate Delossad with Muildir

Muildir is outside the narrow pass through the rocks to Delossad, south-east of Echad Candelleth. Lavanthir is outside the entrance to Eryn Singor, home of the Wood-trolls in north-west Tâl Bruinen.

Candelleth has told you of two locations in Tâl Bruinen that possess an unsavoury air: a set of ruins called by the Elves Delossad, and the home of the Wood-trolls at Eryn Singor. Two of her scouts, Muildir and Lavanthir, are investigating these locations, and she has asked you to consult them for guidance.

Defeat Wood Trolls in Eryn Singor (10)

The entrance to Bar-e-Therchir is somewhere within Eryn Singor, home of the Wood-trolls in the north-west region of Tâl Bruinen.

Lavanthir believes that the unpleasant air that hangs over Eryn Singor emanates from the cave of Bar-e-Therchir and wants you to find the entrance, defeating Wood-trolls along the way, and then return to him.

(Author's Note: You can solo past the wood trolls with caution, at the cave entrance at 35.0S, 16.9W by climbing the right-hand path as you move up the river.  Over a log bridge it eventually leads there. You don't have to go in, so you can make a run for it if the trolls are too much of a pain to fight slowly through, and you have your needed troll-defeats for the quest.)

Talk to Lavanthir

Find the South-west room in Bar-e-Therchir

Find the North Room in Bar-e-Therchir

Defeat Dag Taushakhu (2)

The Dâg Taushakhu live within the deepest chambers of Bar-e-Therchir, located within Eryn Singor, home of the Wood-trolls in the north-west corner of Tâl Bruinen.

Lavanthir has asked you to search the deepest chambers of Bar-e-Therchir to see if Narchuil lies hidden there and to defeat the Dâg Taushakhu.

Search for the keys mentioned in the diary of Sara Oakheart

Delossad is located south-east of Echad Candelleth, in Tâl Bruinen.

Candelleth is sure that she has solved the riddle posed by the diary of Sara Oakheart, believing that the place of which she writes, Sithad, is an earlier form of the name Delossad, the ruins south-east of Echad Candelleth.

3.  Examine unusual items within Delossad.

(Author's notes: This is a interesting, long, solo instance.  You will be going around, seeing ghosts of the past, and occasionally coming back from "flashbacks" and finding your self under attack from minor worms.  Make sure to backtrack, some items are found behind you, and you need to go around clicking glowies to progress.)
