Where to begin? I've been scouting the lands of Enedwaith, just to the north of Dunland and Dunland itself. I've also been speaking to and fighting alongside the various clans who call these rugged lands home. It is a delicate affair since our aim is to pull these people away from the influence of Saruman, who has effectively declared his treason against the Powers who sent him to Middle Earth. Mithrandir is sorely missed by all of the Free Peoples in these perilous times. But enough of that, the "delicate" part of dealing with these clans is that although they have their differences and war amongst each other at times, they are united in their hatred of the Rohirrim, the Horselords who have ever been allies of the West. The Grey Company and I must choose our words and actions very carefully every second we are in contact with the men of Dunland, for one slip can bring everything crashing down into the hands of our enemy in Orthanc.
I leave this missive with a heavy heart and tired limbs (which is a feat for an Elf!). I will try to write more often and keep you abreast of the situation.
