Bestowal dialogue

This tree-ish Ent has decided that he is curious about the creatures he saw -- hobbits whom you know to be Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took of the Shire. Ashlimb's inquisitive gaze speaks plainly: he wishes to know whither these hobbits have gone, and what fate they have met. Are they safe?

You find yourself wondering the same thing.

Background

Ashlimb has spotted two young hobbits whom you know to be Merry and Pippin of the Shire, friends you have met on your travels.

Objective 1

  • Find the Entwash and search for signs of the hobbits' passage

The hobbits walked south-west, towards where they believed the Entwash to be.

You should try to find the Entwash and search for signs of the two lost halflings.

You have come to the banks of the Entwash
Small Footprints: Found a hobbit-footprint in the mud

Objective 2

  • Find a sign of Merry and Pippin's passage

Signs of the hobbits' passage may be found along the Entwash heading north-west, deeper into the forest.

You should search for signs of the two lost halflings.

Hobbit Footprint: It looks like a pair of hobbits may have paused here to wash their cares away in the clear water

Objective 3

  • Find a sign of Merry and Pippin's passage

The hobbits walked north along the Entwash.

You should search for signs of the two lost halflings.

Hobbit Footprint: This footprint points away from the river now, following a low path through the wood

Objective 4

  • Follow the path through the forest to search for signs of Merry and Pippin

The hobbits veered north-east on the path running alongside the Entwash.

You should search for signs of the two lost halflings.

Crumbs: You find some crumbs. Only a hobbit could stop for a nibble upon the discovery of such a strange hill. Surely they climbed this....

Objective 5

  • Climb the hill to try to see if you can spot the hobbits from above

You have followed the hobbits to a strange hill in Fangorn that promises an overlook above the treetops.

Gandalf: 'Well met, <name>. This would be a surprising meeting, if I had not known that you would appear at this very spot around this very time.
'Come, let us speak at some length. Do make yourself comfortable.'
