I'm level 27 and looking for Gandalf to be able to start the Vol. 1 Book 2 quest line "The Red Maid".
But Gandalf is nowhere to be found in the Prancing Pony.
I didn't finish Book 1 -- is that required?
I also checked my quest log and list of completed quests, and I'm not missing something there.
What could I be doing wrong?
