|Walkthrough & Notes|
'<class>, I beg your pardon, but I haven't any other to turn to in these dark times. Please, hear me out. Dwaling has never been a rich town, but we have always gotten by on our own. Many of the best glass-blowers in the Shire were found in these holes. My dad before me was a glass-blower -- best in the North and Eastfarthings -- and I learned the trade from him.
'Recently, things turned for the worse for our little town. What with all the wild creatures about, folk are plain afraid of the north bounds nowadays. Most of the folk have moved away and sold off their property after business stopped. A hobbit out of the Westfarthing sent letters and contracts up this way, purchasing holes and land until he bought up almost the whole town...that's when all the trouble began.
'I used to get white sand for my glass-blowing from a dear old friend who would travel into the Barandalf to the north-east of Dwaling, but he moved away not a week ago. If you would, travel up to the Sand Marshes and get me some. I would be deeply in your debt.'
Sand is needed in the art of glassblowing, and the white sand of the Sand Marshes is the best.
White sand can be found in the Sand Marshes north of Dwaling.
Mundaric Sandheaver has asked you to gather some white sand for him.
Mundaric Sandheaver is at Hob Hillbrow's home at the Bullroarer's Sward in Dwaling, south of the Sand-marshes.
You should return to Mundaric Sandheaver with the white sand.
