Bestowal Dialogue

'My brothers Erchar and Herion are fine warriors, though a bit rash in their decisions.

'We defended Linhir valiantly but the constant watch left us tired. Like brothers often do, we fall to quarreling. I was convinced by Aragorn's word that defending Linhir would be the best use of our skills. Erchar disagreed and convinced Herion that staying in Linhir was a fool's errand. He wanted to take the enemy by surprise. In an instant of protest, both Erchar and Herion took their forces into the field.

'I am afraid they may have met with slaughter. <name>, would you ride out to the west and look for any signs of them? They may still be alive. Search for Erchar first. You will need to convince him to return before Herion will follow.'
