Bestowal Dialogue

'You have told me much of this strange man, <name>, but most troubling is your description of his clothing.

'By your account, he bears a cloak that belonged to none but our captain, Faramir. If this man is Faramir, our cause is lost, and we should forge a new strategy to escape the city before dawn. However, if he is not - who would be so bold as to take up a mantle beyond his standing and elude the aid of his brethren?

'Search the southern ways of the city, on both shores of the Anduin, for his path would lead him either to the camps of the Haradrim or the ruins of the armoury across the Orkish bridge-rafts. Track him, and capture him if you must - for we must learn of his identity!'


Disturbed by the note you recovered and your sighting of a mysterious Ranger in the depths of Osgiliath, Mablung sends you to the streets above to track this elusive stranger.

Objective 1

  • Search Osgiliath for signs of the mysterious Ranger's passing

Signs of the Ranger's passing can likely be found in southern Osgiliath, especially around the wharfs and nearby ruins.

Mablung has asked you to pursue the mysterious Ranger you encountered in the sunken tunnels of Osgiliath. By the way he took to escape, Mablung suggest searching the wharfs and the nearby ruins.

BROKEN HORN "A broken horn that once belonged to Faramir."
As you examine the horn, the Ranger appears and dashes across the nearby bridge-rafts
TARNISHED NECKLACE "A dull necklace that once belonged to Faramir."
As you examine the necklace, the Ranger dashes up a nearby staircase!
CRACKED SHIELD "A damaged shield that once belonged to Faramir."
As you examine the shield, the Ranger darts out beneath the broken bridge and flees!

Objective 2

  • Return to Mablung and tell him of the Ranger's elusiveness

Mablung can be found in the culverts of Osgiliath.

You have lost the trail of the mysterious Ranger, and should now report his elusiveness to Mablung.

Mablung: 'This man bears a grave wound, and yet eludes us at every turn... what force could empower a man so?
'We must hasten our search, and work to corner this man - be he friend or turned foe.'
