Bestowal dialogue

'Have you a moment?

'In just two days, I've lost nearly twelve barrels of ale to thieves. It's always the same! I find the barrel emptied with a great big hole bored into the bottom of it!

'There's treachery afoot here, and I think those dratted cave-claws are to blame again. Always sticking their noses where they don't belong!

'Knock on some of the barrels and give them a fright. That ought to drive them off!'


After discovering several suspiciously empty barrels of ale, Snállar hopes to uncover the source of theft.

Objective 1

  • Knock on barrels and drive out the ale-thieves (0/10)

Barrel-racks can be found throughout the Hall Under the Mountain.

Snállar has asked you to knock on various barrels of ale to try to expose the ale-thieves in Erebor.

BARREL-RACK "Barrels of dwarf-ale stacked on a wooden rack."
Knocking ...
You hear the calm, familiar slosh of ale within these barrels...
With a sudden crash, an ale-soaked cave-claw breaks out of one of the barrels!

Objective 2

Snállar can be found in the Hall Under the Mountain.

You have driven off several ale-soaked cave-claws in the Hall Under the Mountain and should now return to Snállar.

Snállar: 'Greedy little burrowers, that lot! Well, that ought to teach them not to meddle with our ales...
'And to think I'd considered requesting new barrels made of iron! Bah! It would turn my finest beers to swill!'
