The Bearded Minstrel is a blog dedicated to preserving the storylines present in the Lord of the Rings Online. I have been playing this game for 10 years, and while I am something of an expert in Tolkien lore, I know very little about the stories Turbine and Standing Stone Games have written within this world.
As such, I have begun a new journey to tell these tales. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Ok, I'm just kidding. Obviously that is way too difficult to really discern and understand. Here is the break down on a deed/quest level:
* Note: If the quest objective is a ring and easily reached, it won't be featured here. Just open the map and run to the ring.
Deed: The Way Into Mordor
* The Durthang tower-top is accessibly only by going through Durthang proper. The guide to Durthang can be found here.
Deed: Forgeworks of Udûn
Deed: Forge-fires of Udûn
Quest: Lost Lore of Gorgoroth: Udûn
Pages 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,9,10,14 and 16 are in Udûn proper.
Pages 6 and 15 are in Anglach.
Pages 11 and 12 are in Durthang.
Page 13 is in Durthang Tower-tup and is at the very top of Durthang Tower.
Quests: Signal Flags in Udûn
The quests Whispers and Signs, An Answer Unspoken, and Advanced Signs are detailed below:
Quests: The Things They Left Behind
The rest of these are not 100% complete yet, if you find more information, please share and I will update accordingly.

New Region: Mordor (North-Western Portion Known As Gorgoroth)
During the War of the Ring, Gorgoroth was the location of mines and forges which supplied Mordor's armies with weapons and armor. Frodo and Sam looked upon Gorgoroth and passed through it on their way to Mount Doom.
