Bestowal dialogue

'I have never seen such deep shadow as that which blankets the Room of Voices, and the fell whispers that still lurk there confound the mind and caused even my heart to quail. Some work of great evil must have been conducted there, and the memory of it has scarred that chamber.'

You tell Sigileth your belief that the spirit of Sauron spent the years following his defeat by the Last Alliance recovering in that chamber beneath the fortress.

'That explains the shroud that hangs upon it. Now he has fully regained his strength, his shadow will continue to grow, and fester.'

You explain, briefly, that Sauron has been defeated, and you came to Dol Guldur in search of the Bugdatish, an artifact prized by his Gúrzyul. Sigileth stares at you with wonder.

'Gurth dan i ngúdrim! I am filled with amazement, <name>. Perhaps the end of the Dark Lord will serve to lessen the shadow that lies upon the Room of Voices, rather than increase it! It is clear you have many tales to tell since battle drew us apart, but those can wait until we escape from the fortress. I am unfamiliar with the name Gúrzyul, or with this Bugdatish, but many are the relics that lie within Gostador. Let us search for these, and lay waste to any of Sauron's remaining servants. Then we will escape together.'


You have found Sigileth in a secret wing beneath Dol Guldur, and she wishes to help you complete your mission before the fortress is destroyed.

  • Defeat Orcs within Gostador (0/12)
  • Collect hoarded relics within Gostador (0/8)
  • Collect runed tomes within Gostador (0/4)

Servants of Sauron and evil relics can be found throughout the halls and chambers of Gostador.

RUNE-FILLED TOME "Evil runes fill the pages of this tome, but might signal something useful if studied by someone with experience of dealing with dangerous manuscripts."
HOARDED RELIC "Perhaps sensing that the destruction of the fortress is imminent, the Orcs have begun jealously picking up relics from every chamber."
Defeated Orcs within Gostador (12/12)
Collected hoarded relics (8/8)
Collected runed tones within Gostador (4/4)

Objective 2

Sigileth is in her hideout at the Sorcerer's Stores, in Gostador.

Sigileth: 'We have gathered a number of relics and tomes, but it will be up to others to examine them. Is one of these the artifact you seek, the Bugdatish? We will not find out here.'
