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 arrived at the ancient Elven site of Redvale, only to find the cast out adviser, Rycroft, at the scene. She and her men had been digging up the long dead Elf, Nestrien, looking for something. As the Party arrived, Arvelan’s presence (and his ancient Numenorean blood) drew dark spirits and a Barrow Wight to life. Fleeing from its terror, the Fellowship captured Rycroft and brought her back to the Elven King’s Halls to await a meeting with Thranduil.
