Bestowal dialogue

'Hello, <name>! Not getting tired so soon, are you?

'I know just the thing to liven up this banquet! I... just don't quite recall where I left it.

'Back when we were at Isengard, I packed away a bit of the Longbottom Leaf we found in the stores. After all, it's not like Saruman was going to use it stuck up in his tower!

'Anyway, I can't remember if I left my pipe-weed near the baths in the Great Guesthouse, by some of the horses in the High Stables, or over by the prow of Minas Tirith. It's got to be one of those!

'If you go find it, I'd be happy to share it with you. Why, I'd be glad to share every last bit of it tonight!'


With the One Ring destroyed and the Enemy undone, the Free Peoples of Middle-earth gather to Minas Tirith for a grand banquet commemorating the wedding of King Aragorn II Elessar to Queen Arwen Undómiel. Among the many in attendance, there sits a hobbit of some renown -- Meriadoc Brandybuck.
