Bestowal Dialogue

Treasure Lost, Treasure Found
"Did Theodore Gorse come this way? And if he did, can you and Bingo bring him to safety?"

Background

Bingo has entered the lair of the mighty Draigoch in order to rescure Theodore Gorse... if it is not already too late!

Objective 1

Bingo is inside the entrance to Draigoch's Lair, hoping to rescue Theodore Gorse before it is too late!'

Bingo Boffin: 'Oh dear... look at this poor fellow! This is not a safe place at all, <name>. It seems burglars have come in here from time to time, and any that did not fall prey to the dragon's fire may have met their end at the hands of those they brought with them! When treasure is involved, good friends can become enemies over the distribution of even a single coin.
'But it is the dragon we should worry about for now!'

Objective 2

  • Follow Bingo deeper into Draigoch's lair
  • Bingo must not be defeated

Bingo is inside the entrance to Draigoch's Lair, hoping to rescue Theodore Gorse before it is too late!'

Bingo Boffin says, "Haley, I think you should stay up here and see if Theodore comes in this way."
Haley Meadowsweet says, "All right, Bingo. If you're sure."
Bingo Boffin says, "It could be that he has not arrived yet. It would not surprise me if he dawdled!"
Bingo Boffin says, "<name> and I will go see if he is already inside!"
Bingo Boffin says, "This way, <name>!"
Bingo Boffin says, "Look out! This place is full of bugs!"
Bingo Boffin says, "Look at all this treasure! But there are so many bodies, too."
Bingo Boffin says, "Watch your step here, '<name>."
Bingo Boffin says, "More bugs!"
Bingo Boffin says, "I hope Theodore is all right. He is a likeable fellow, in his own way!"
Bingo Boffin says, "Careful, '<name>. There is another steep slope."
Bingo Boffin says, "These bugs are getting even larger!"
Bingo Boffin says, "That one was pretty scary. Do you think the dragon will be that big?"
Bingo Boffin says, "Watch your footing again, '<name>. It's pretty steep!"
Bingo Boffin says, "Get ready!"
Your luck has held so far. The Dragon is asleep
Bingo Boffin says, "Oh my."
Haley Meadowsweet says; "I see Theodore! He is down there, on the far side of the dragon!"

Objective 3

  • Bingo must not be defeated

Haley has followed you to a ledge overlooking the sleeping dragon.

Haley Meadowsweet: 'I could not wait any longer, <name>, and it is a good thing I followed when I did, for you seem to have no way of descending from this ledge to the floor of the lair. How can you rescue Theodore if you cannot get down to him?
'Well, I have a coil of rope. I will tie it to a rock up here, and we can descend to the floor of the lair to save Theodore! We will have to be very, very quiet, so use caution!
'Now let me tie this rope!'
Haley uncoils her rope and ties it securely to a rocky outcrop

'The Rothstone will be safe here, <name>. May it give this dragon all the misfortune it can produce, and leave me and Haley alone!
'It is a funny thing, but I look around at all this treasure and I find that I don't desire even the smallest portion of it. Perhaps I am done being a Treasure Seeker after all. You did not need to come in after me, but I am touched all the same. I surrendered one treasure, but I found another treasure all the same: what good friends I have!'
