"the area"? [In reply to] Can't Post

Azog's scouting party spots the dwarves somewhere in the wilderness along the Great East Road between the Shire and Rivendell, an area it does not seem to me they should naturally be in. I thought orcs generally live in the mountains somewhere. I seem to recall that Gandalf also mentions their presence (in one of the White Council conversations) as an example of how things are not as they should be, along with Trolls coming down from the mountains, when Elrond speaks of the 400 years of peace. That this is not in fact an odd coincidence is further supported by the suggestion in the film that these orcs are looking for Thorin/his party specifically. My recollection of the dialogue is that the orc who finds them says something to the others along the lines of "We have found the dwarvish scum, tell the Master" (suggesting they were looking on "the Master's" orders, and for these specific dwarves).
