Bestowal dialogue

(Elves only:) 'These Corsair raiders likely landed at the shore west of here, in Belfalas. I expect they have established a foothold in the old ruins on the coast. Your people once lived there, apparently, but that must have been a thousand years or more ago. You are the first Elf I have seen near Calembel for as long as I have run my shop, at any rate.

'If you are of a mind to deal with these Corsairs, those ruins would be the place to do it! I do not know if you hold any attachment for the place, but even I do not think the cruel folk of Umbar should despoil the old homes of Elves, or of anyone.

'I have not travelled that way since I was a young man, but I remember an overlook with a good view of the ruins. That would be a good place to survey the situation, and you should go there first.'

(Other races:) 'These Corsair raiders likely landed at the shore west of here, in Belfalas. I expect they have established a foothold in the old ruins on the coast. People say Elves once lived there, but that must have been a thousand years or more ago. No Elves have come near Calembel for as long as I have run my shop, at any rate.

'If you are of a mind to deal with these Corsairs, those ruins would be the place to do it! And while you're at those ruins, if you happen to see any old remnants of the Elves, bring them back to me and I will pay you good coin for them. The Elves won't be needing them, after all.

'I have not travelled that way since I was a young man, but I remember an overlook with a good view of the ruins. That would be a good place to survey the situation, and you should go there first.'

Background

Galengam believes the Corsairs must have landed at the old refuge of Edhellond, in Belfalas.

Objective 1

An overlook of the refuge of Edhellond, west of Calembel in Belfalas, would be a good place to begin your stand against the Corsair raiders.

Galengam has sent you to Edhellond to deal with some of the Corsair raiders.

Galengam: 'I have not travelled that way since I was a young man, but I remember an overlook with a good view of the ruins. That would be a good place to survey the situation, and you should go there first. Find it to the west, in Belfalas.'

Objective 2

Lathlorn is surveying the situation at Edhellond, from an overlook that provides a good view of the refuge.

Lathlorn:
(Elves only) 'If you are a friend, you are welcome to share my watch. I would be pleased to have your company, for Men of Umbar have brought their ships to shore, and threaten Edhellond. Our people have not inhabited the refuge for a thousand years, but if your heart is like to mine, we bear enough affection for places once dear that we cannot allow the raiders to remain.
'If their goal is plunder, they will be disppointed. The only relics that remain will be of historical value only. Any valuable artifacts or jewels were taken long ago.
'There are others of our people nearby. If you are a friend and can defeat some of the raiders throughout Edhellond, I will bring you to them. Return hither with any relics you find, and I will be doubly-pleased, for I do have an interest in curiosities from our people's history.'

Objective 3

Lathlorn has asked you to explore the abandoned refuge of Edhellond, defeating Corsair raiders and collecting any relics of historical interest.

Lathlorn: 'If you are a friend, you are welcome to share my watch. You are doubly-welcome if you defeat Corsair raiders throughout Edhellond, and return to me with any relics you find!'
Corsair ships have moored at the docks of Edhellond
The buildings along the southern court are intact, but empty
The tallest tower at Edhellond once kept watch over the sea

Objective 4

Lathlorn is on an overlook with a good view of the Corsair landing at Edhellond.

You have defeated Corsair raiders throughout Edhellond and collected a number of forgotten relics, and should bring them now to Lathlorn.

Lathlorn:
(Elves only) 'It always warms the heart to meet a new friend in these dangerous days, <name>. We do not have enough warriors to cast the Corsairs into the sea, but your efforts in the refuge have told them that even an abandoned refuge is never truly forgotten by our people.'
