Bestowal dialogue

'I need your help! The Orcs have some foul magic that they hope to use against us! The other night I was keeping watch on this side of Cirith Núr, and I saw dark figures carrying a pair of crates out of Nan Wathren.

'I loosed a fire-arrow at them, to signal the town-guard. The arrow struck one crate, and those carrying it dropped it and ran. Soon after, there was a sound like thunder and a ball of fire! The others hastily retreated carrying the other crate.

'Can you imagine what would have happened if they had gotten that onto the bridge? We must learn what was in that crate! Would you go to the western edge of the Nan Wathren, search for this crate and find out what's inside?'


Aggy Digweed spotted figures carrying a crate out of Nan Wathren. To signal the guard at Trestlebridge, she fired a fire arrow towards them and struck the crate, which exploded in a ball of flame.

Objective 1

The crate was destroyed at the western edge of Nan Wathren.

Aggy Digweed, afraid that this new weapon may be the doom of Trestlebridge, asked you to look for the shattered remains of the crate.

Aggy Digweed: 'We must know what was in that crate! You should search the western edge of Nan Wathren for it and bring some evidence back here.'
Collected the crate contents
Aggy Digweed: 'Is this what you found in their camp? Here, let me examine it....
'Awful stuff! I've no doubt this stuff is dark magic. And knowing the Orcs, this crate wasn't the only source of this "Black-fire!"'
