'We had no way of knowing the Gate would be in this state, <name>, and didn't think to bring extra pickaxes with us. Still, this area has many stout trees which should provide ample strong branches, perfect for pick-handles. We'll sharpen the metal heads ourselves and attach them to the new handles.
'I sent my son Bori to collect stones upon which we could sharpen our axes, but he has yet to bring me any. Gather branches from the bases of trees and help my son collect sufficiently sharp stones, and return to me when you have done both. Bori is probably wasting time with his friend Bróin at the stairs east of here. Those two care more for the spinning of tales than they do for working!'
Bósi has tasked you with collecting the materials necessary for producing new pickaxes to replace the ones broken by the dwarves at the Hollin Gate.
Thick branches can be found at the base of trees in the area around the Hollin Gate. Bori is likely talking to his friend Bróin at the stairs east of Bósi.
Bósi has asked you to collect thick branches with which to make sturdy pick-handles and to help his son Bori with the task of gathering sharpening stones.
Bósi is west of the stairs leading up to the fetid lake in front of the Hollin Gate.
Bósi is waiting to speak with you now that sufficient materials for new pickaxes have been gathered.
