Bestowal dialogue

'Ah, greetings to you, good Hobbit! I am Gufi, at your service. It is a great day to be a dwarf, I tell you, and I am privileged to see the retaking of Khazad-dûm in person!

'As we arrived here, I noticed the railway directly to the west. I sense that there are untapped mining prospects there, for the lodes of the Silvertine are the richest in veins in all of Moria, and likely in all of Middle-earth.

'Would you be so good as to scout prospective paths in the tunnels, and hang signs at any clear dead-ends so that we know where to start our search?'


Gufi is confident that the dwarves will be able to reclaim Moria quickly. He is eager to scout out potential mine-sites.

Objective 1

  • Scout dead-end passages (0/3)
  • Scout intact passages (0/1)

The railway tunnel is directly west of Gufi's camp, and can be reached by following the track directly there.

Gufi has asked you to scout the tunnel into which the rails proceed.

Gufi: 'There is no point proceeding until we have had a chance to scout out our best prospects.'
The rails stop in a dead end here
The rails stop in a dead end here
The rails stop in a dead end here
The passage is intact, but you note a sense of dread hanging about this particular tunnel

Objective 2

  • Post signs at the dead ends (0/3)

Signposts can be found in the rail-tunnels of the Silvertine Lodes near the dead ends.

You should hang signs where the rails lead to dead ends.

Objective 3

  • Return to Gufi

Gufi is at the central encampment in the Silvertine Lodes.

You should return to Gufi with the results of your survey.

Gufi: 'Dread, you say? Bah! A dwarf does not fear a little dreariness in a mine-shaft! According to you, that is the best and only road, and so that is where we will begin! I thank you for your report, <name>, however nonsensical its delivery!'
