Bestowal dialogue

'I have need of an adventurer, <name>, and it may be that you will serve nicely. My friend Frodo here will soon be leaving on an errand both urgent and secret.

'Hobbits are remarkable creatures, and Frodo is more remarkable than most -- he has stepped forward to accept a charge that would daunt even those counted most brave in all the annals of the world.

'Ask me not about his task! And do not ask Frodo, either. He may wish to speak of it, but it is better that he not do so. I do ask you this: speak with him and gauge his feelings. Much depends on his courage and good hobbit-sense, but I am loath to send him into danger if he is not prepared for what he may face. Speak with Frodo, tell him of your adventures, and give me your thoughts on his mood.'

Background

Gandalf the Grey is concerned for his hobbit-friend Frodo Baggins, who has agreed to undertake a dangerous task of great secrecy.

Objective 1

Frodo Baggins is in Bilbo's room on the first floor of the Last Homely House, in Rivendell.

Gandalf the Grey has asked you to speak with Frodo Baggins and gauge his state-of-mind.

Gandalf: 'Speak with Frodo and gauge his mood. Much depends on his good hobbit-sense, and I would not send him into danger unprepared for what he may face.'
Frodo: 'It is a pleasure to meet you, <name>. You are a friend of Gandalf? Yes, he is very mysterious.
'I am sorry, I'm not entirely myself today. There are a lot of things on my mind, oyu might say. This is a place of peace, and I know that Bilbo is very happy spending his days riddling in the Hall of Fire, but...it just feels like I am so far from home.
'Would you like to take a walk with me? The cool air will do me good, and I would very much like to hear about your adventures. Let me know.'

Objective 2

Frodo Baggins is in Bilbo's room on the first floor of the Last Homely House, in Rivendell.

Gandalf the Grey has asked you to speak with Frodo Baggins and gauge his state of mind. Frodo is waiting to take a walk with you in the cool air.

Frodo: 'A walk will do me good, I think. Are you ready to go? Rivendell is a beautiful place, and I have very much enjoyed walking its paths.'

Objective 3

Gandalf the Grey is in Bilbo's room on the first floor of the Last Homely House, in Rivendell.

You and Frodo walked the grounds of Rivendell, and he expressed his concerns to you. Gandalf is waiting to hear your opinion of the hobbit's state-of-mind.

Frodo: 'Thank you for the walk, <name>. I am sorry that I gave you no peace! You can tell me about your adventures another time... and perhaps then I can tell you about mine.'
Gandalf: 'Frodo remains as high in my esteem as ever he did, <name>, and I thank you for accompanying him. He is made of stern stuff, our Frodo, and his worries are natural. They will give him strength in hard times, rather than bring him to weakness. Frodo will be fine.
'I thank you, <name>. May your travels bring you out of danger quickly if they chance to bring you into it!'
