Quest Description:

Tobold Leafcutter's studies in the Bree Library gave him an understanding of some of the secrets the Barrow-downs holds. His concern grows with every new discovery within the Barrows.


Objective 1
The barrows of Taradan, Orron, and Ringdor lie in the northern Barrow-downs.

Tobold Leafcutter has told you that you should dig at the entrances to the barrows of Taradan, Orron, and Ringdor. To help in your digging, he has given you a blunted pick-axe to use. This tool will help prevent any damage the digging may cause to any lore-fragments you uncover.

Objective 2
Tobold Leafcutter waits for you between the Barrow-downs and the Old Forest.

Your digging at the barrows of Taradan, Orron and Ringdor has uncovered three fragments of lore, written on scraps of parchment. You should bring these fragments to Tobold Leafcutter.
