'I have dispatched an emissary to the dwarf-city of Gondamon to relax the growing tensions between Elves and dwarves, but I fear rumour of Avorthal's captivity may prove too great a strain for her to ease.
'Journey north and west along the road to Gondamon and tell Gailthin what has transpired here. Together, you and she must learn the truth of Avorthal's whereabouts and rescue him, if indeed he is a prisoner of the dwarves. I do not wish for war until we are certain of his fate.
'If Avorthal has been harmed or we are unable to free him, I will call our warriors to arms; but not before.'
Dorongúr Whitethorn is willing to go to war for Avorthal, but only as a last resort. Suspicious that Pamprauth's news of Avothal's captivity may be a goblin-ruse, he wishes to first use diplomatic means to learn the truth.
Gailthin is in Gondamon, north and west of Duillond, in the low-lands of Ered Luin.
In the spirit of diplomacy, Dorongúr has asked you to carry a letter to Gailthin, his emissary to the dwarves of Gondamon, and bids you aid her in finding and rescuing Avorthal.
