Bestowal dialogue

'A trail, <name>! Red flowers leading a trail through the snow...do you think these are the footprints of blood?

"Blood-red footsteps
Upon snow coloured black,
Where the Dour King walks
to take back his throne
and finish what was begun."

'We have black snow and the body of the Dour King has been moved, leaving the fell flowers as footprints. Something evil is at work here, and I am sure something evil was at work when he sought our relics for immortality.

'We must follow him again. My brother is scouting for signs as well -- seek him as you search.'

Background

Red flowers have grown around Skorgrím's crumbled grave and around the place where he fell. Elladan believes that the flowers could possibly be what Elrond saw as blood-red footprints in his dream and will lead to Skorgrím's body.

Objective 1

  • Explore the gate at the Silver Deep Mine's courtyard

The "Blood-red footsteps" begin at the Silver Deep Mine. Elladan suspects that they lead to wherever Skorgrím now lies.

You should follow the red flowers to their end, examining each for signs, for they grow where Skorgrím's corpse corrupted the land as he was moved over it.

Elladan': 'Head first to the Silver Deep Mine and be sure you follow the red flowers wherever they lead. Be careful, <name>! I suspect a great evil is afoot here.'
The trail of "Blood-red footsteps" begins at this spot

Objectives 2 to 5

The "Blood-red footsteps" begin at the Silver Deep Mine and grow along the road. Elladan suspects that they lead to wherever Skorgrím now lies.

You should follow the red flowers to their end, examining each for signs, for they grow where Skorgrím's corpse corrupted the land as he was moved over it.

You have found another flower along the trail

Objective 6

  • Follow the trail of red flowers down the road

The "Blood-red footsteps" begin at the Silver Deep Mine and grow along the road. Elladan suspects that they lead to wherever Skorgrím now lies.

You should follow the red flowers to their end, examining each for signs, for they grow where Skorgrím's corpse corrupted the land as he was moved over it.

The trail of flowers has led you to a dark dwarf-keep

Objective 7

An unfriendly-looking keep now stands before you.

You should scout the keep, for the trail indicates that Skorgrím's body may have been moved here.


Dwarf version
Tryggwi: '<name>! I did not expect to see you here. I asked to speak with the Steward, and the Dourhands directed me here. This was once a great storage-house of Thorin's...I don't think I like what the Dourhands have done with this place.'

Elf version
Tryggwi: 'Hail, Elf! I see that you are one of the company that arrived last night when we did. I wonder if we seek the same thing. I am here to find out what has become of Gormr. You seek Skorgrím, you say? The Dourhands are his descendants, but Skorgrím is long dead.
