Bestowal dialogue

Elf or Man:
'Weapons of this make may have a long and storied history, <name>. Its tale grows ever with the felling of evil foes -- the more servants of evil this weapon cuts down, the more deadly it becomes.

'Only a skilful few can read the tale of a weapon from its craftsmanship. I refer you to one who can further aid you: the Elf Dithalion by the forges in Rivendell. He is wise and learned in many things, including the study of ancient weapons.

'If Dithalion cannot help you, he will surely know another who can descry the lineage and powers in a weapon of this artistry.'

Dwarf or Hobbit:
'Weapons of this make may have a long and storied history, <name>. Its tale grows ever with the felling of evil foes -- the more servants of evil this weapon cuts down, the more deadly it becomes.

'Only a skilful few can read the tale of a weapon from its craftsmanship. I send you to the one who can further aid you: the dwarf Wafi, in Thorin's Hall in the distant land of Ered Luin.

'Seek out Wafi by the great fires of the Forging Hall in Thorin's Hall. He can assist you in reading the lineage and power of a weapon such as this.'

Background

You have received a weapon from the Elder Days, discovered by the dwarves in a hidden cache, and you must now delve for its secrets.

Objective 1

Dithalion is by the forges in Rivendell.

Hundi bade you to show your new weapon to Dithalion, an Elf of Rivendell who will be able to help determine the intrinsic strengths of the weapon.

Hundi: 'Dithalion will be by the forges in Rivendell, <name>. It is a long way, but he may be able to glean some knowledge from your new weapon that will be use to us.'
Dithalion: 'You have come a long way to be here, <name>. What business could bring a valiant <class> such as yourself here to the Forges of Rivendell?'
Dithalion looks at the weapon and grows still, his eyes wide in wonderment.
'This is a relic of the Elder Days, my friend! Such a weapon has an unmatched potential to grow in power, its storied legend growing with your own!'

OR

Wafi is in the Forging Hall of Thorin's Hall in Ered Luin.

Hundi has told you to show your new weapon to Wafi in Thorin's Hall. Wafi will be able to help determine the intrinsic characteristics of the weapon.

Hundi: 'Wafi is in the Forging Hall of Thorin's Hall itself, in Ered Luin. It is a long way from here, but there are very few who can read the strengths of a weapons from its make, and Wafi is one.'
Wafi: 'You have come a long way to be here, <name>. What business could bring a valiant <class> such as yourself all the way from Hollin to Thorin's Hall?'
Wafi looks at the weapon and grows still and whistles his astonishment.
'However, my kinsman Rósar, the Forge-master, will surely have more to say than I, for his knowledge is vast and exceeds my own. Show him this weapon, and he will give you an assessment of its strengths and potential.'[confirmation needed]
