Bestowal dialogue

'I feel well-prepared for the journey now, <name>, I am ready for anything!

'I just need to pack up the belongings I will need and put a few things in order before I depart. Will you help me with these final preparations? It saddens me to leave the Golden Perch and her fine ale behind, but that is the life of an adventurer, is it not?

'Let us return to my hobbit-hole in Michel Delving!'
Bingo Boffin: 'I hope you will pardon the mess, my friend. I have had so few visitors lately, and I am afraid I have let the place get a bit disorganized. I will pack up my belongings, and clean up while I am at it!'
Bingo frowns.
'Do you know something? I had quite forgotten until just now, but I have borrowed a number of items from my neighbours over the years and never returned them! I should give these back before I leave. After all, you never know what might happen on such a journey!

You have returned the bucket Bingo borrowed from his neighbour Myrtle, and now she wishes to speak with you.

Myrtle Boggs: 'Bingo kept my bucket for so long, I though I'd never see it again. But now he sends you over to return it, and with no explanation.'
You open your mouth to respond, and she silences you with a curt gesture.
'No need to explain now, <name>. I know why Bingo is returning all of his borrowed items. He is leaving the Shire! Yes, Esmerelda Burrows told me all abou this little secret.
'I will not stand idly by! I wrote a petition to have Bingo put in the Lockholes to keep him from undertaking this foolish adventure, and many notable hobbits have signed it! Go speak with the mayor and see if he has ruled on it yet!'
Myrtle sniffs righteously, certain that her petition will succeed

Objective 9

Mayor Whitfoot is outside the Town Hole, sout of Bingo's hobbit-hole, in Michel Delving.

Myrtle Boggs does not approve of Bingo's adventure, and has started a petition to have him locked up in the Lockholes instead. She has asked you to see if the mayor has ruled on her petition yet.

Mayor Will Whitfoot: 'Yes? How can I help you? I do hope that it is a quick matter, for I am late to a dinner...'
You politely ask the mayor if he has ruled on the petition submitted by Myrtle Boggs. He sighs.
'If I had known the sort of complaints I would have had to deal with as mayor, I would never have accepted the office! Do this! Do not do that! Stop this person from leaving! Make this person leave! It is a constant din of noise, <name>!
'I suppose the dinners make it all worthwhile, but only just! I am not going to rule on this petition. If Myrtle Boggs wants to stop Bingo Boffin from leaving the Shire, she can lock him up herself! You take this petition and give it to Mr. Boffin, because I want nothing to do with it!'

Objective 10

  • Show Myrtle's petition to Bingo inside his hobbit-hole, in Michel Delving

Mayor Will Whitfoot has given you Myrtle's petition to give to Bingo, so the hobbit will know what awaits him (and that Myrtle might attempt to lock him up herself!)

Mayor Will Whitfoot: 'I am not going to rule on that petition. If Myrtle Boggs wants to stop Bingo Boffin from leaving the Shire, she can lock him up herself! You take this petition and give it to Mr. Boffin, because I want nothing to do with it!'
Bingo Boffin: 'What is this, <name>?'
You hand Bingo the petition and he reads it quickly, but instead of the crestfallen face you expected, the hobbit smiles brightly.
'Well, will you look at this? Myrtle Boggs obtained the signatures from good hobbits throughout the neighbourhood to have me locked up in the Lockholes. What a lovely compliment that is! My neighbours care so deeply about me that they are willing to go to such an extreme to keep me from leaving!
'I have to do something nice for Myrtle, <name>. Can you go to the statue of Marcho and Blanco in the centre of the town and pick some of the flowers that grow there to give to Myrtle? Tell her that I received her message as clear as day, and will return as soon as I am able!
'What sweet neighbours I have. Now I feel bad that I borrowed their items for so long without returning them!'

'Kind... thoughts...? I mean, yes, of course, I wish only the best for all of my neighbours, but still...'
Myrtle turns a bright shade of red.
'I will write ANOTHER petition! This one will be about... about something else... but it will be SERIOUS! You'll see!'
You leave Myrtle to gather her thoughts... and her signatures
