Bestowal Dialogue

'It is true that none of our foes have yet made an assault against Tumladen, but I believe it to be only a matter of time.

'In the past days, I have seen the guards speaking to the people and abandoning their posts for hours at a time. And for what? To speculate about the fate of Minas Tirith and the truth of the battle of Pelargir!

'Such matters are not of their concern! If only they knew the truth, they would know how important it is that it remains secret! I have a mind to scold them for their foolishness, but instead, I leave this matter to you.'


After learning the secret truths of Aragorn's siege of Pelargir, Lady Terenis wishes to silence any lingering rumours and ready the defences of Tumladen.

Objective 1

  • Scold guards spreading rumours (0/3)

Guards can be found throughout Tumladen, especially near the refugees of Minas Tirith.

Her curiosity appeased, Lady Terenis has asked you to scold the guards of Tumladen that are spreading rumours about the battle at Pelargir.

Nosey Tumladen Warrior says, "I hear that the Steward sent his son back to Osgiliath! Would not such a charge be folly?"
Nosey Tumladen Warrior says, "What's the harm in a bit of speculation?"
Nosey Tumladen Warrior says, "Were not you there for the battle at Pelargir? Why keep such heroics a secret?"

Objective 2

Lady Terenis can be found in her hall in Tumladen.

You have scolded several guards and sent them back to their posts. You should now return to Lady Terenis.

Lady Terenis: 'I see how you look at me, <name>.
'You know that I would not be so easily dissuaded from my curiosity, and you wonder how I could be so bold to demand that others abandon theirs. You see, these men are not like me... and you would do well to remember that.
'They hold their position here to protect the people, not to spend their days engrossed in speculation.'
