Bestowal Dialogue

'I am glad you have come to the Cave of the Avorrim, <name>, for with the dawn came messages from afar, and one of these concerns you directly. The Lady of Lórien speaks in cryptic words, but I can discern enough to know that you will be able to interpret her wishes.

'Lady Galadriel speaks of a Gondorian man on an errand he believes important. It has drawn him into the Dead Marshes by the Battle Plain of old, and his feet are dogged by servants of the Enemy. The Lady of Lórien does not need to express her desire in words for me to know what drives this message: she does not want this Gondorian man to draw the attention of the Orcs to this place.

'The Avorrim keep several fast horses for their personal use, but none so swift as that cared for by our Master of Horses. Speak to him and ride to the Dead Marshes with all the speed you can muster, and hasten this Gondorian back to his home-lands before he causes great harm by his presence there.'


Dorthaneth has received word from the Lady of Lórien concerning an enterprising Gondorian in the Dead Marshes, and wants you to ensure he causes no trouble.

Objective 1

The Master of Horses is in the Cave of the Avorrim.

Dorthaneth has asked you to speak to the Master of Horses, who cares for the swiftest Avorrim horses.

Master of Horses: 'If it be Dorthaneth's wish for you to depart in such haste, I will not stand in your way. The steeds of the Avorrim may give even the fabled Mearas a close race, if you want to know my opinion!
'Ride swiftly, and at once, if it is the wish of Dorthaneth!'

Objective 2

  • Borrow the swift horse from the Master of Horses and ride to the Dead Marshes

The Master of Horses cares for a swift horse in the Cave of the Avorrim.

Dorthaneth wants to fulfill the wishes of Lady Galadriel, and has asked you to borrow a fast horse from the Master of Horses and carry out an important errand in the Dead Marshes.

A long journey of many miles finally concludes: you have come to the Dead Marshes

Objective 3

Artamir, son of Ilcamir, has come to the Dead Marshes on an errand, but Galadriel of Lórien fears his presence there may draw unwanted attention to those lands.

Artamir: 'Hail, stranger! It is good to see a friendly face in this inhospitable land! I caution you to watch your step, for I would not want to lose you so quickly beneath the mire... we have only just met!
'I am Artamir son of Ilcamir, and I call the White City my home. From where do you come, my friend? No matter your answer you are far from home in this place, I warrant!'
