Bestowal dialogue

This horse was not lucky enough to survive his encounter with Núrzum, but his rider is not with him. What errand could have tempted a horse and rider to brave the frozen wilds in such a dangerous time?

You should search for the rider and find out what became of his errand.

Background

You have come upon the corpse of a steed of Wildermore whose rider is not with it. You should search for the rider, for he may yet live.

Objective 1

  • Search nearby for signs of the horse's rider

Signs of the rider may be found near the horse's corpse in the southern Whitshaws.

You should search near the wintry landmark for any signs of whoever braved such a dangerous errand.

Núrzum surely did this, likely throwing rocks at the fleeing rider

Objective 2

  • Search nearby for signs of the horse's rider

Signs of the rider may be found near the horse's corpse in the southern Whitshaws.

You should search near the wintry landmark for any signs of whoever braved such a dangerous errand.

Another rock was thrown, but no sign of the rider can be found here

Objective 3

  • Search nearby for signs of the horse's rider

Signs of the rider may be found near the horse's corpse in the southern Whitshaws.

You should search near the wintry landmark for any signs of whoever braved such a dangerous errand.

Another boulder...and nearby, a man sprawled in the snow

Objective 4

  • Search for the rider

Signs of the rider may be found west of the horse's corpse in the southern Whitshaws.

You should search near the smashed boulders for signs of what became of the pursued and fleeing rider.

You have found the rider, and he is dead -- another life taken by Núrzum

Objective 5

  • Pick up the messenger's missive

The message borne by the rider has fallen not far from his side.

You should pick up the message and see if you can bear it yourself, and fulfill the errand for which this poor man died.

Rider's Missive: SUMMONS: IMMEDIATE EVACUATION TO FORLAW
The Reeve summons all people of Wildermore to evacuate to Forlaw at once. You are in danger. The forces of Isengard storm the land, and a fell winter is upon us. You are no longer safe; make haste, and beware of the armies of Isengard, and of winter storms.
Gárwig
Thane of Forlaw, Reeve of Wildermore

Objective 6

Cyneberg has ridden on to the village of Dunfast in the central Whitshaws.

You should bring the missive to Dunfast and show it to Cyneberg, and hopefully evacuate the people there if it is not too late.

Cyneberg: 'Oh Dear. This is not good, <name>.
'Gárwig's missive came to Dunfast too late, I am afraid.'
