Bestowal dialogue

'So you are the mighty <class> of whom everyone has spoken so well! Word of your valour and courage has reached my ears, but seeing as I am a disbelieving sort, I would like to see if you are made for the sort of challenge I have to offer you.

'Many of us are hoping to thwart the Orcs from their evil intentions to attack the Golden Wood of the Elves. If you are truly all that they say you are, you will go and face the leader that stands at the heart of the Forges; his name is Kranklûk. I want you to defeat this Orc and bring me his brand as proof that he is dead.

'This will not be an easy task, nor is it impossible. Prove yourself in this challenge of mine, and you will receive a rich reward. Oh, and...there is no shame in bringing friends with you on this venture.'

Background

The Forges of Khazad-dûm, once a glorious smith-hall for the dwarves of Moria, have fallen into evil hands. The Forges now serve the Orc masters of Moria and are used to build all manner of weapons and war-machines for an assault against fair Lothlórien. Brogur and Bósi's dwarves, wishing to reclaim Moria, aim to prevent this at any cost, for they would see the Elves and dwarves reinstate old alliances for the good of both.

Objective 1

Kranklûk is in the Forges of Khazad-dum, south-west of Eilíefr's post at the Twenty-first Hall.

The dwarf Eilíefr has challenged you to make your way into the Forges and defeat the Orc who leads the rabble there, and then return with Kranklûk's Brand as a token of your victory.

Objective 2

Kranklûk is in the Forges of Khazad-dum, south-west of Eilíefr's post at the Twenty-first Hall.

The dwarf Eilíefr has challenged you to make your way into the Forges and defeat the Orc who leads the rabble there, and then return with Kranklûk's Brand as a token of your victory.

Eilíefr: 'A fine trophy! This Orc was too dangerous to be allowed to live, and I am glad to hear that he is gone once and for all.'

Eilíefr looks long at the brand you have brought him, his brow creased with concern.

'Kranklûk's brand still glows with a fell light, <name>. I do not think its master is truly dead....'
