Objective 2

  • Hear Burnoth's tale

Hear Burnoth's tale.

Burnoth, son of Baldeg says, "Do you wish to know why it is that I believe we will have victory here?"
Burnoth, son of Baldeg says, "Madness though it may seem to you, I believe it is because I refuse to die so far from home."
Burnoth, son of Baldeg says, "We all have our reasons to live, and those things drive us to survive. For Hutha, it is the bond of brotherhood. For Léofdag, it is redemption. For Ulf, it is vengeance. For Reeve Ingbert, it is for honour and his people."
Burnoth, son of Baldeg says, "What is my reason, you ask? Perhaps you have heard me call my horse by the ignoble name of Prancey? Brynmód is his right name, but Prancey is the name given him by my daughter, Céolwen."
Burnoth, son of Baldeg says, "Not long after I came to Aldburg, I met a lady named Merewen, the daughter of one of Lord Éomer's counselors. We fell in love and were wed."
Burnoth, son of Baldeg says, "Merewen bore us a daughter...Céolwen is now three-and-a-half summers. I swear to you that I will not die in these lands, parted from them."
Burnoth, son of Baldeg says, "My life will end in Aldburg, beside my wife and daughter, be it in peacetime or in war."
Burnoth, son of Baldeg says, "Now you know all that is worth knowing about me."
Ingbert, Reeve of the Entwash Vale says, "Ho there, my friends! Is all in order?"
Ingbert, Reeve of the Entwash Vale says, "My men are prepared. One force awaits within the hall, another in the northern end of the city. They simply await your call."
Burnoth, son of Baldeg says, "Indeed, I was just about to send <name> here to check in with Ulf and Léofdag."
Ingbert, Reeve of the Entwash Vale says, "Good...if we survive this, there will be a feast in your honour!"

Objective 5

Hear Ulf's tale.

Ulf the Reaver says, "I told you of the day Lord Éomer found me, but I did not tell you "why" I was hunting Orcs near the Argonath."

Ulf the Reaver says, "Then ten years ago, I lost everything...."
Ulf the Reaver says, "Thane Gladsúnu of Gapholt called a weapontake to cleanse the Orcs of the Misty Mountains from the area...."
Ulf the Reaver says, "I joined the Thane's company of one-hundred and twenty men, and we drove the Orcs back into their caves...only we learned too late that it had been a trap."
Ulf the Reaver says, "The Orcs ambushed us within their caverns, and only twenty of us returned alive...though many of us wished we had not."
Ulf the Reaver says, "We returned to our homes to find them burnt to the ground and our families slain. My wife and sons lay before me, dead, in the midst of a dozen Dunlendings."
Ulf the Reaver says, "I do not remember what happened next...I simply awoke later amid the severed heads of the Dunlendings, with a large gash upon my face. Wigelm died then, and Ulf the Reaver was born."
Ulf the Reaver says, "I can only barely remember what my wife and sons looked like...all I know now is the desire to shed the blood of my enemies."

Léofdag, son of Winedag says, "My dear Fleda sees past my shame, and even stands staunchly in my defence with her uncle...I need not prove my worth to her."
Léofdag, son of Winedag says, "My daughters, however, must bear the brunt of my shame. They are both of marrying age, but no man will have them because of me."
Léofdag, son of Winedag says, "Léofwen, the elder, declares that she cares not and remains ever faithful to her father, but I have seen great desire in her eyes when she looks upon the children in the village."
Léofdag, son of Winedag says, "My younger daughter, Wynith, however, scorns me for her plight. I must prove to her and to the men of Aldburg once more that I am worthy of honour...as in my youth."
Léofdag, son of Winedag says, "Do you see this scarf I wear? It was given to me by my Fleda and is my most prized possession...I wear it now as a token of my oath to redeem my honour."
