Book I - Oath of the Rangers
Elrond received a mysterious message from Galadriel, telling him to gather the Rangers of the North and send them to Rohan to help Aragorn. The player is summoned to the Last Homely House and given a list of Rangers to recruit: Radanir, Candaith, Saeradan, Halros, Halbarad, Calenglad, Lothrandir, Corunir and Golodir.
Book II - The Ride of the Grey Company
The Grey Company starts its journey south and arrives in Enedwaith. Halbarad has crafted fake copies of the Ring of Barahir, in order to buy Aragorn time, in case one of the Grey Company gets captured. In Enedwaith, they discover an old and confused Dwarf, Nár, father of Ollfardh and companion of Thrór. To everyone's amazement, he knows about the secret road the Company is planning to take.
Book III - Echoes of the Dead
While investigating who can be trusted and who can't, the Rangers receive word that there is a band of Oathbreakers from Erech in Enedwaith. An attempt to remind them of their Oath to Isildur fails horribly when Candaith is killed. Halbarad wants to lead the company on to Dunland, but as they leave Nár, the Dwarf reveals Saruman the White had a hand in these events all along.
