Bestowal dialogue

There are enough supplies for a short stay, and you divide them among the rest of your companions.

Background

Your exploration of the East Wall will need to be comprehensive if you are to learn what happened to the Fellowship here, and if it is still in your power to help them.

Objective 1

  • Talk to Corudan in the shadow of the Argonath

Corudan is in the shadow of the Argonath.

You have divided up the supplies you brought from Lothlórien and should now speak with Corudan.

Corudan: 'I think it is good to help Framric while we can, but always keep your eyes open for the real reason we are here.
'As you pass southward through the woods of the East Wall, remain alert for a grassy lawn alongside the Anduin. That peaceful space is called Parth Galen, and it may be a good place to begin our search.'

Objective 2

The lawn of Parth Galen is south of the Argonath, on the south-western side of the lake of Nen Hithoel.

Corudan believes you should begin your search for the Fellowship on the lawn of Parth Galen.

Corudan: The lawn of Parth Galen is south of the Argonath, on the south-western side of the lake of Nen Hithoel. That may be a good place to begin your search for our mutual friends.'
A discarded pack in the grass catches your eye

Objective 3

A discarded pack lies partially buried in the grass of Parth Galen.

Objective 4

Somewhere within the East Wall, there are more signs of what happened to the Fellowship.

Tracks in the dirt reveal a great number of running feet passed this way!
A slain uruk in the southern part of the glade catches your attention

Objective 5

A great battle was fought at Dead Orc Glade... but not everyone came this way. Are there clues on the beach back near Parth Galen?

Sandy footprints lead down to the water!

Objective 6

  • Talk to Corudan in the shadow of the Argonath

Corudan is in the shadow of the Argonath, in the East Wall.

You have learned much about what befell the Fellowship, and should now return to tell the story to Corudan.

Corudan: 'It is a sad tale you wave! The burden our mutual friends bear caused some amount of discord among them, and they were splintered. It seems from the signs you read that one or more of them repented of their deeds and sought to repair the divide when the Orcs appeared.
'One halfling stayed clear of the fighting, and it seems another joined him. If they did not cross the river by themselves I cannot come up with another explanation. The two of them have now left the East Wall, heading east. You know the identity of these two, <name>: can it be anyone but the bearer of the great burden and his loyal servant? Only Galadriel can hope to see them now.
'I am uncertain of the path of the rest of the company, but my own reading of the signs has shown me something that seems fairly clear: three of that company have left for Rohan... on foot. I believe they pursue the other two halflings of the company.'
