Bestowal dialogue

'There is no more leaving the city, <name>. The Morgul-host has surrounded Minas Tirith, and the Pelennor is filled with their weapons of war. They have not yet broken the gate, but there is still much harm they can cause even from their position beyond the walls. You must do what you can to help the city's defenders!

'The Council of Gondor is in disarray. Go to the Dome of the Sun and learn what you can do to help them communicate their resolutions. Lamlor, the Captain of Tidings, will need help to send messages throughout Minas Tirith.

'Ingold is atop the wall on the north end of the Third Circle, and will need your help to manage his fear and the fears of the men behind the walls. Terror will be the greatest foe of our guardsmen, and they will need to master it if they are to mount an effective defence!

'The armies of Mordor have been using catapults and other siege weapons to launch burning stones over the walls and into the city. Find Rathon, Warden of the Wells, in the Sixth Circle near the street that leads up to the Citadel, and help him extinguish some of the fires before they can spread!'
