'When hope was lowest, a red ray of the sun fell on the smooth rock face...
You stand at Erebor's secret entrance on the very hour of Durin's Day that Bilbo Baggins and Thorin's company did long ago. The secret door has long been removed, but of late seemingly plain slab of stone has been placed before it.
Step forward and see what becomes of it when the dying sun lighs it face.'
- 'Here on Durin's Day Thorin II Oakenshield King of the Longbeards son of Thráin son of Thrór unlocked this door,' the runes begin.
