Disclaimer: Not mine, except for the new name for the settlement, which means "City of the East" rather than "City of Death" (Ost Guruth) LOTRO's original name for it.
Ost Rhúnen, which had been known as Ost Guruth in the time of the Stewards, was no longer a crumbling ruin but a thriving town. The travelers were welcomed at the entrance by Hana, the headman’s daughter, who led them back to her small, tidy inn.
The Brown Wizard was a fine establishment, added onto the old Lore-tower. The tower room still belonged to Radagast. Eventually Elanor encountered the ithron himself, tending a baby rabbit as he entered the kitchen.
“Miss Gardner, a pleasure.” Radagast bowed to the tweenaged lass.
Flustered, Elanor hastily remembered to curtsey. “An honour, my lord.”
