The Captain of Bladorthin is an NPC from whom you can hire units. He spawns in a Vintner Guard Camp, along with a Vintner Guard Captain, however, while the tent always contains a Vintner Guard Captain, the Bladorthin Captain will only sometimes accompany him.
Upon hiring a unit from a Captain of Bladorthin, the player earns the achievement "Order of Bladorthin".
Captains of Bladorthin will occasionally spawn in Vintner Guard Captain Tents, which are found across Dorwinion, forming the central component of Vintner Guard camps
Like most of the captains in the mod, the Captain of Bladorthin will not attack hostile players or NPC's unless provoked, in which case he will use his weapon to defend himself. Once he's defeated his attacker, he will heal very quickly -- as fast as hired units, in fact.
In order to hire units from this Elf, you'll need 250 Dorwinion alignment. Less than this will simply result in the Elf refusing to let you hire units. The units he has available for hire are (having more alignment than the basic requirement will result in lower prices):
|Unit||Unpledged Cost (Silver Coins)||Pledged Cost (Silver Coins)||Alignment Required (Dorwinion)||Requires Pledge (Dorwinion)|
|Bladorthin Warrior||50-100 ( to )||25-50 ( to )||+250||No|
|Archer of Bladorthin||70-140 ( to )||35-70 ( to )||+300||No|
|Dorwinion Elf Banner-Bearer||70-140 ( to )||35-70 ( to )||+400||No|
