Bestowal dialogue

Something must be done. We have no captain now and many lives have been lost. There are customs and rites to be observed - or are we not on the same perilous road he went down?

'We have no captain and so we will all stand about unless someone begins. Yes, there we have it.

'Will you help me once more, friend? Gather the men and what belongings of Lachír's you can find. We will meet on the high platform across the road. It is as good a spot as any.'

Coldan: 'Tales of Old Gondor, it was. Oft around a campfire he would read our of it. Do you remember? Such fine old kings and warriors. Their weapons bore names and their raiments shone. Their deeds were great, their words were poetry, and their deaths brought tears to the eye.
'Perhaps that is what old Lachír wanted for himself. In some way it was like that, was it not? And yet unlike, Makes you wonder if the men in those old tales felt themselves in a book... or felt something more as we feel now.'

Othras: 'It is too easy by far to forget the Lachír we knew, just as Mulnír said. The one who led us into battle and was ever our protector and companion. That Lachír and the one we knew here, who strayed on foot and reason from the path... from every path... I feel that they are the same man.
'For perhaps there was always some madness in his nature. Perhaps the dreams that lived in the old tales of Gondor led us bravely to war and then vainly, ruinously through the wreckage of Udûn.
'And before we condemn him in his memory, perhaps we should look within our own hearts and wonder what dreams and what in our own natures has been twisted and made monstrous by this place. Truly, perhaps it is only our humble stations that have kept each other of us from doing greater harm.'
Mulnír says, Truly this is a place of warping madness.

'If we wish to stay in good graces, we had best return to camp and see that all is returned to order. But that is on your own head, for I am no captain, not today and not tomorrow.'

'Please, accept our thanks. Do not you linger, either.'
