It is the year 2946 of the Third Age, and the lands east of the Misty Mountains are a stir. From the cloud-shrouded peaks above the High Pass to the spider-infested gloom of the forest of Mirkwood, paths long-deserted are trodden once again. King Bard sees his new kingdom surrounded by good fertile land to be settled, but the Desolation of the Dragon left terrible scars on the world, and all the old maps were burnt. He needs heroes to go out and map the borders of his new kingdom, and an ancient Elven village lost in Mirkwood, Redvale.
The Fellowship of the Dales set out into the Wilds of Mirkwood, and encountered the tracks of a strange creature which had killed a bird. They also overheard a band of Goblins & Orcs who had come down from the Mirkwood Mountains. They were headed to meet with a “Dark Emissary” known as Nugragh. Mirel lead the Fellowship to the Elven King’s Hall, where they met with Thranduil of the Elves. Thranduil interrogated them for their intentions, eventually granting them passage to the land of Redvale, despite warning them of the Darkness which lies there. Neartho, Thranduil’s aide, sailed the Fellowship towards their final destination.
