Bestowal dialogue

'That was a nice visit after all, <name>. Prisca eventually forgave me for whatever part I may have played ín Marigold's decision to become a hero instead of a stay-at-home hobbit, and I enjoyed spending time with my many cousins. I jotted down their names in the margins of my manuscript so I do not forget them. Once again I marvel at how Prisca keeps track of them all!

'My feet are ready to once again set foot on the road! I consulted the map, and it seems the town of Bree should be our next stop. Let us walk to the west-gate of that town and take in the sights for a short time only, and then we will continue into the Lone-lands... and further adventure!'

Background

The next step of Bingo's journey takes him to the town of Bree, where hobbits and Big Folk live together on the Bree hill.

Objective 1

The town of Bree is to the east along the road from Newbury.

Bingo is ready to continue his journey, and wants to walk with you to the West Gate of the town of Bree.

Bingo Boffin: 'I will meet you at the West Gate of the town of Bree. I am ready for our journey to continue!'
You have arrived at the West Gate, and Bingo has already made a new friend

Objective 2

  • Talk to Bingo at the West Gate of Bree

Bingo has made a new friend at the West Gate of the town of Bree.

Milo Goodbody: 'Welcome to Bree, my new friends!'
Bingo Boffin: 'I have never been to Bree before, but I always heard there was something peculiar about the hobbits who lived here. This Milo fellow seems to be perfectly friendly, though! He has invited us to the Prancing Pony for a brief welcome in the main room, and I have gladly accepted. It is good to make new friends!'

Objective 3

Milo Goodbody is at the West Gate of Bree.

Bingo has made a new friend, a Bree-hobbit named Milo Goodbody, and you should speak with him.

Bingo Boffin: 'Milo has invited us to the Prancing Pony for a brief welcome in the main room, and I have gladly accepted. It is good to make new friends!'
Milo Goodbody: 'Welcome, welcome! I was just talking to Bingo here, and he was telling me about this journey of his. What an extraordinary fellow! It is only right that he experience the finest tavern in all of the Bree-land, wouldn't you say?
'You'll find the Pony just up the hill, and I think it would be a fine opportunity for some rest and merriment. After all, Bingo's adventure will soon take him into the wild, and there will be few opportunities for such revelry! Speak to old Barliman inside the Pony, and he will ensure we are provided with aught we might need.'

Objective 4

You and Bingo have been invited to partake in the merriment at the Prancing Pony, and should speak to its proprietor, Barliman Butterbur.

Bingo Boffin: 'I will see you inside the Prancing Pony, <name>!'
Milo Goodbody: 'The Prancing Pony is just up the hill, and it is a place of much merriment, with fine food and drink and many good folk, both Big and Little. Speak to Barliman and he will make sure to take care of us!'
Barliman Butterbur: 'Welcome to the Prancing Pony, friend! Make yourself comfortable, and do not be shy! Mister Boffin has already found a table in the main room, and told me to expect you.
'Please let me know if there is anything I can get you, and enjoy the food and the drink and the company!'

Objective 5

  • Talk to Bingo in the Prancing Pony

Bingo and Milo have made themselves at home inside the commom room of the Prancing Pony.

Barliman Butterbur: 'Mister Boffin and Mister Goodbody are already in the common room. They did not wait for you to begin eating and drinking, but they said you would be along shortly so I thought nothing of it!'
Bingo Boffin: 'Ah, there you are! What a fine place this is, <name>! Have some food and have some drink, and sing a song or three! There is plenty of each, and we should all add to the din with our melodies!
'Milo has been telling me some of this town's history, and he says that Bree was founded by hobbits before even the Shire! I do not know if that is so, but he certainly believes it. He is a good fellow, but I think he is wrong on this subject. I do not know where hobbits come from, but there are so many of us in the Shire, compared to Bree, that I think we must be older.
'Eat, drink, and sing, my friend! This is no time for arguing, even if Milo is mistaken about his history!'

'Are you slowing down? Unacceptable! More food, more drink, and more song! We must not insult the proprietor of this fine establishment!'

'Oh, thank you very much, that's more than generous. It is an honour and a pleasure to serve such fine folk as yourself and Mister Bingo, and Mister Goodbody is a regular patron, of course.

Bingo shakes his head groggily.
'I enjoyed making some new friends, but I must confess that it is not the most auspicious beginning for our journey! I think it is best that we leave the town of Bree and its renowned Pony behind us, or this is as far as my adventure will take me!
'According to the map, there is another tavern just inside the Lone-lands, to the east. Let us travel to that tavern and find rooms for the night. No more merriment, for now! That has proved even more dangerous to my journey than the Barrow-downs!'

Objective 16

Bingo has decided that it would be best to continue his journey before spending any more time in revelry in the Prancing Pony.

Bingo Boffin: 'According to the map, there is another tavern just inside the Lone-lands, to the east. Let us travel to that tavern and find rooms for the night. No more merriment, for now! That has proved even more dangerous to my journey than the Barrow-downs!'

  • Talk to Bingo in the Forsaken Inn

Bingo is inside the unwelcoming common room of the Forsaken Inn, in the Lone-lands.

Bingo Boffin: 'I cannot imagine a more different common room than that of the Prancing Pony, <name>! This one is oppressive and unwelcoming, for certain! It may be just as well, for the revelry and merriment of Bree's renowned Pony threatened to stall my journey there for good!
Bert Bartleby has arrived outside Ost Guruth in the Lone-lands.
