Bestowal dialogue

'Hello again! The spring weather is pleasing, rain or shine, is it not? I see that you are still looking at the hedges of the maze yonder. Do you wish to challenge your own best time? That is an admirable goal; I do not think you are yet ready to challenge mine.

'I think a good compromise will be your running of the maze within twice the amount of time I was able to achieve on my best day. Ten minutes should do the trick. My five-minute record is not to be outdone, of course. I am willing to offer a fairer prize on this challenge.

'Don't forget to shout if you get lost and need me to come looking! I'll not think less of you -- some people get mighty lost in such a confusion of ways. But I'm afraid that you may miss the scenery and smells if you are able to carry on at a pace that will get you out so quick as this challenge demands.'


Gil Plover, the Maze-master of Bree, has challenged you to get through the maze before the time runs out. You must not tarry long within the hedge-walls!

Objective 1

  • Enter the maze

The entrance to the hedge maze is near the festival grounds in the Horse-fields, a distance to the north of Bree-town.

Gil Plover has challenged you to get through the maze, from start to finish, before the time runs out. The time he has allotted is twice the amount of time of his record run.

Objective 2

  • Find your way out before the time expires

The exit to the hedge-maze is around here somewhere...or is it?

You should try to find your way out of the maze before the time runs out. Gil plover got out in no time at all compared to the amount you've been given.

Objective 3

  • Talk to Gil Plover outside the maze in the Horse-fields

Gil Plover is standing near the hedge maze, which is very near the festival grounds of Bree-land, north of Bree-town.

You should speak with Gil Plover, for you can prove that you were able to best his challenge that you would not get through the maze in admirable time.

Gil Plover: 'Oho! You did not startle me this time, <name>. I had a bit more faith in you, though I feel secure in my own record. You will never beat that.'
