Bestowal dialogue

'Ah, <name>, I need to speak with you. I have heard of your adventures at Carn Dûm, and I am concerned. Besides your strange encounters with her during your travels, I have never heard of this Sara Oakheart, and I am troubled by her.

'There are few now in this age who have even heard of the palantíri, much less be concerned enough with them to steal them. Moreso, they have now become dangerous, for Sauron possesses the Ithil-stone, which he has certainly bent to his will.

'Return to Golodir at Gath Forthnír and help him search for Sara Oakheart and the palantír. I fear that only evil will come of these events.'

Background

Mordirith, the False King, has been defeated and sent back to Mordor houseless, but the mysterious Sara Oakheart stole the palantír Mordirith had in his possession. This greatly concerns Gandalf the Grey.

Objective 1

Golodir is at Gath Forthnír in Angmar, far to the north of Rivendell.

Gandalf the Grey has instructed you to return to Gath Forthnír and help Golodir to search for Sara Oakheart and the missing palantír.

Gandalf: 'Lend your aid to Golodir at Gath Forthnír. The valiant Ranger has a mighty task before him.'
Golodir: 'Gandalf sent you to help me search for Sara Oakheart and the missing palantír. The search will be short indeed, for she has, after a manner, been found…though it is still good you have come, for the manner of her discovery concerns you deeply.
'I discovered this note in Carn Dûm, left seemingly by her. She requests your presence in Barad Gúlaran. What it is that she wishes of you, I cannot imagine. I suggest that you go and find out, but tread lightly and with your hand on your weapon. If she seeks you at Barad Gúlaran, the place where the Witch-king studied his terrible arts, she is not to be trusted.
'You will find Barad Gúlaran in the centre of Nan Gurth, an evil valley haunted by wights and other dread creatures. Go and bring back the palantír.'

Objective 2

Sara Oakheart is at Barad Gúlaran in Nan Gurth in Angmar. Barad Gúlaran is located in the centre of a series of bridges that surround it like the spokes of a waggon-wheel. Sara Oakheart was seen by the tower located at the most south-easterly of these bridges.

Sara Oakheart has been found outside Barad Gúlaran. Golodir has told you to be careful.

Golodir: 'Barad Gúlaran is located in Nan Gurth, in the centre of a series of bridges that surround it like th spokes of a waggon-wheel. Sara Oakheart was seen by the tower located at the most south-easterly of these bridges. Find her and retrieve the palantir.'
Sara Oakheart: 'I am glad that you have come, <name>. The time has come for us to discuss several things. You have been most helpful in many ways to me and my friends. We have much to talk about very soon.'
