Strider tells the player that they need to unravel the threads of the plans of the Captain of the Nine. There is a Blackwold camp just east of Bree where he believes that Amdir, a Ranger whose alligance changed to Angmar, and Skorgrím, leader of the Dourhand, went. He wishes for the player to help him and his company end Amdir's life at night fall.
At the camp Strider and the Ranger Lenglinn circle around the camp while the player and the Ranger Torthann attack the camp from the front. After defeating the brigands Torthann and the player encounters Skorgrím. After driving the dwarf out of the camp the party is reunited with Strider and Lenglinn. Togther they make their way deeper into the camp where they witness a Nazgûl changing Amdir into a wraith. The party manages to scare the Nazgûl away and then slay Amdir before the transformation could be completed.
