Bestowal dialogue

'Wild Men live here long time before others. Our land our own. I am called Khôr-buri-Ghân, son of headman Ghân-buri-Ghân.

Background

You have encountered one of the Wild Men of the Druádan Forest. Can he or his people be of help to you?

Man version?
'You are friend of Stonehouse-folk? Build walls, long time since they see Wild Men. In danger now.
Hobbit version
'Wild Men not know of hobbits. Soft folk? But far from home, perhaps hobbits more tough than first looking.
'You have welcome from Khôr-buri-Ghân, for time. If you prove false you will not live long in forest. You are no friend of gorgûn? Tell Khôr-buri-Ghân now.'
He waits for your answer

'Wild Men may know a way. Not Khôr-buri-Ghân's place to say. Come to Drû Bhûta. Speak to Ghân-buri-Ghân. He will speak for Wild Men.
'Drû Bhûta village to west. Must go north-west through rocks, across water. Then back south. Hidden path. Look for narrow path climbing south-west. Khôr-buri-Ghân see you at front of village.'

'Gorgûn think they win, but gorgûn wrong. Soon will see.'
Mân-weni-Mhên: 'Wild Men hear word of much from forest. Horse-men pass by, never seeing. They find gorgûn if keep going. Headman say not to interfere. Maybe will, maybe not. Wild Men do as Ghân say. Wise leader know when to fight, know when not to fight.
