Scenic Tour: Dunland

Myndariel kind of skipped Mirkwood and Enedwaith. She completed the Landing Quests for Mirkwood and thought it a rather gloomy zone. With dark Moria still so fresh in her memory, she wasn't ready to face the Nazgûl in Dol Guldur. So she galloped off to Dunland, passing through Enedwaith briefly. She plans to come back and explore and make herself useful in both Mirkwood and Enedwaith later.

Dunland was just right for Myndariel. She worked her way through Volume III, Book 4: The Rise of Isengard, helping every village along the way, getting taken prisoner in the depths of Isengard by Saruman, escaping and then helping the Prince of Rohan with the Battle of the Ford (Volume III, Book 5). In the end, she was given the title of "Master of the Untamed Lands" for completing all the deeds asked of her. I really enjoyed the story and the characters involved, not to mention the quest rewards looking much better than at lower levels. Myndariel still can't believe Lheu Brenin and the people of Tûr Morva betrayed her, after she and the Grey Company did so much to help them. Elves live a long time, and she will not forget nor forgive their actions.
