"Long have Durin's Folk desired to look upon the halls of Moria once again, to reclaim their birthright from the goblins and Orcs who now dwell there. Has that time now come? Not even I can foresee their fate...."

Background

Workers of Bósi and Brogur's expedition have nearly unearthed the rubble blocking the Hollin Gate, and the time is nigh to enter Khazad-dûm.

Objective 1

Bósi is standing on the slope that winds past the small dwarf-outpost in view of the still pool.

You have come with Bósi along the winding path that runs up to the Hollin Gate, and he is waiting to speak with you.

Bósi: 'We will stop at the outpost here for a moment before continuing on to the gates, <name>. We will need to establish a camp once we are inside the mines, and I want to ensure that everything is prepared.
'You still have the pickaxes, yes? Good. Follow me.'

Objective 2

  • Follow Bósi to the small outpost

Bósi says, "This way, <name>."
Bósi says, "We will no longer need this outpost."
Bósi says, "After all, the Hollin Gate will soon be open!"
Bósi says, "Hail, my fellows! How goes your work?"
Expedition Guard says, "Greetings, Lord Bósi! We have been doing our best to support the effort, but..."
Expedition Guard says, "'Tis the wolves. We have heard them howling for the past few days, and it is unnerving."
Bósi says, "It will take more than wolves to keep us from Khazad-dûm."
Expedition Guard says, "You are right, my lord. I do not hear them now. Perhaps they will leave us in peace."
Bósi says, "It is quiet, isn't it? <name>, what do you think?"

Objective 4

  • Defend Bósi from the shadow-wolves

The small outpost along the path that winds up to the still pool in front of the Hollin Gate is under attack.

Bósi says, "To arms! We are under attack!"
Expedition Guard says, "That is not the last of them!"
Bósi says, "Do not rest yet, friends!"
Bósi says, "This must be the leader! Slay him, or we will not survive this night!"

Objective 5

Wárr is supervising work at the Hollin Gate, east of the small outpost and around the pool.

While Bósi helps make preparations at the small outpost, he wants you to deliver the repaired pickaxes to Wárr at the Hollin Gate.

Dwarf Craftsman says, "Pick up the pace. This waggon needs to be loaded within the hour."
Waggon-driver says, "Within the hour? Are we truly so close to opening the Gate?"
Dwarf Craftsman says, "'It'll be no problem,' you said. 'The wheels will be fine,' you said."
Waggon-driver says, "This is a momentary setback, that's all."
Dwarf Craftsman says, "A momentary setback? Look at it!"
Dwarf Craftsman says, "What do you think caused all that rubble to block the Hollin Gate, anyway?"
Dwarf Craftsman says, "I don't know. Haven't really thought about it."
Dwarf Worker says, "What is it you think you saw?"
Dwarf Worker says, "I'm not sure. Whatever it was, it's gone now."
Wárr: 'Very good. These pickaxes look to be in good shape, and will be a great asset as we finish unearthing the last of this rubble.
'You can leave them in that crate to the south there, right next to Lord Brogur.'

Brogur is in front of the Hollin Gate.

Brogur is waiting to speak with you about helping the expedition at the Hollin Gate.

Brogur: 'Those pick-axes will be a great help, <name>, even if you took your time bringing them here. Our workers are almost through the rubble already!
'Don't worry about that; what's done is done. I'm more concerned with this pool -- there's something about it I don't like. It makes me feel uneasy.
'Some of my dwarves have been casting stones into the water, and I'd appreciate it if you could get them to stop. It makes me nervous.'

Brogur says, "Tell those fellows not to disturb the water. It makes me nervous."
Rókur says, "I did not mean any harm, <name>. I will leave the water alone."

'It waited in the depths, watching as we strove to open the doors, and struck just as we were most vulnerable. Curse its foul hide for taking Bróin, and many other fine dwarves beside!
'They will be avenged, but for now we must retreat. We cannot hope to enter the Doors while it lurks before them.'
