  • ​​Captain: This is a Light-forsaken land, isn't it? You can barely even see the sun! this howling wind cuts to the bone and you're not even shaking. Milord, are you alright?
  • Arthas: Captain, are all my forces accounted for?
  • Captain: Nearly. There are only a few ships that--
  • Arthas: Very well. Our first priority is to set up a base camp with proper defenses. There's no telling what's waiting for us out there in the shadows.
  • Arthas: Ah, a gold mine! We'll set up our base there.
  • Arthas: We're under attack! Take cover!
  • Muradin: Bloody hell! You're not undead. You're alive!
  • Arthas: Muradin? Muradin Bronzebeard is that you?
  • Muradin: Damn, boy. I never imagined that you'd be the one to come to our rescue!
  • Arthas: Rescue? Muradin, I didn't know you were here.
  • Muradin: Just the same, lad. I could use your help. My mates and I were attacked, and we got separated. I'd appreciate any backup you could give me.
  • Arthas: Of course, Muradin. Let's move.

  • Arthas: All right, Muradin. What were you doing up here, anyway?
  • Muradin: Well, lad. there's an ancient way gate that lies somewhere is this glacial wasteland. Supposedly, it transports you to a hidden valut where a runeblade named Frostmourne is held. We came here to recover Frostmourne, but the closer we came to finding the way gate, the more undead we encountered.
  • Captain: Prince Arthas, we haven't found any trace of Mal'Ganis.
  • Arthas: No matter. He can't hide from me forever. Captain, I want you to establish this site as our primary base.
  • Captain: Yes. Milord.
