Deed Lore

How strange...scattered throughout the warrens of Goblin-town seem to be a set of old, well-worn brass buttons, as if lost from a Hobbit's waistcoat. How in the world did such things come to be in these dark and twisted tunnels?

To complete this deed perform the following objective(s)

Find The stained button
A brass button stained with something... blood perhaps?
In any case, it certainly is not a goblin-relic – it looks more like something you would find on hobbit’s waistcoat...
Find The tarnished button
This odd little brass button is heavily tarnished and worse for wear – but it seems that at some point it would have set well upon a rather fine coat or jacket. How did goblins get this?
Find The polished button
This brass button is old and worse for wear, but it looks like some curious goblin has polished it recently. He must have carried it as a keepsake of some sort.
Find The scratched button
How odd – a brass waistcoat button in the depths of Goblin-town? The face of the button appears to have been heavily scratched, perhaps against a rock face at some point in the distant past.
Find The bent button
This bit of brass finery seems out of place in the dark warrens of Goblin-town. It also seems to have been bent, perhaps in whatever incident separated it from the waistcoat it once must have secured.
Find The shiny button
This brass button looks surprisingly well-kept, and you can still faintly see the etched design on it that marks it as being of Shire manufacture – but what hobbit in his right mind would venture into the depths of Goblin-town wearing a waistcoat!?
Find The broken cufflink
Interesting – this appears to be a cufflink that might have once been in fashion among the hobbits of the Shire, but the post has snapped, and it is of little value now.
Find The blackened cufflink
This cufflink looks like it might have once been a rather fine piece of jewellery – likely of hobbit-make – but it appears to have been badly marred and blackened when some clumsy goblin dropped it into a fire pit some time ago.
