Bestowal dialogue

'The Orcs of Mazog son of Bolg currently rule Khazad-dûm. If we are to make headway there, we must truly put great fear into them. Hysing and Gúthi are working on a plan to do just that, but for the time being, we only need to do enough to make Mazog feel threatened.

'The Ghâsh-hai are a powerful force, as their number is many, and they are skilled in battle. I wish to fool Mazog into believing they are launching an offensive into Zelem-melek. This will take some work, but I believe it will succeed. The clearest signal of fire and flame is that of burning wood. If Mazog sees an advancing army of flame towards his position, it may give him pause.

'First, we need to gather up wood for bonfires. There is not much down here, but much of the scaffolding is old and falling apart. If you search around the tunnels east of Hadâd-mezer and Bhraf-ru you should find ample wood for our task.'


The dwarves are planning to trick Mazog into believing a massive Ghâsh-hai army is mobilizing from the Flaming Deeps.

Objective 1

Scaffold-pieces can be found in the tunnels east of Hadâd-mezer and Bhraf-ru, both south of Anazârmekhem.

Gapi wants you to gather fallen scaffold-pieces with which to make campfires on the borders of Mazog's territory.

Objective 2

Gapi is in Anazârmekhem, north of Bhraf-ru and Hadâd-mezer.

Gapi will want to get his hands on the scaffold-pieces so he can begin setting up the campfires.

Gapi: 'This will do perfectly. There is enough wood here, and it is dry, so it will burn well. Mazog will tremble when he sees all of this ablaze.'
