Bestowal dialogue

'You there! I sent Vífill to cut a quarter-cord of firewood for Noglond, but he hasn't come back. See if you can find him.

'Just follow the road to the west. There's a clearing out that way where we gather our wood.

'Be wary though...who knows what's delayed Vífill.'


Grímkell, the commander at Noglond, sent one of his guards, Vífill, to cut some firewood and is concerned because Vífill has failed to return.

Objective 1

Vífill is somewhere in the firewood grove down the road west of Noglond.

Grímkell has asked you to go out and search for Vífill.

Grímkell: 'Vífill still hasn't returned from the firewood grove just up the road.'
Vífill: 'Ha! Well met! I was wondering when Grímkell would send someone. I was in the clearing, cutting wood for Noglond, when goblins fell on me from the shadows of the trees.
'I managed to kill two and wounded the last, enough to drive it off, but was wounded myself in the fight. The foul creature ran off to the south. Tell Grímkell what happened and to send help!'

Objective 2

Grímkell is at Noglond, east of the firewood grove.

Vífill tells you to inform Grímkell of the presence of goblins in the firewood grove.

Vífill: 'I'll be fine…leave me. Grímkell must be told about the goblins immediately!'
Grímkell: 'Goblins, here in the Vale of Thráin? Nay, that's not likely. Surely not!'
