Bestowal dialogue

The man strains as he looks at you, clearly in pain from his wound.

'It is too late to save me, stranger, but...I am glad you have come. You can help us.

'But first, there is something I would have you do. I cannot...do it myself, and I cannot send Ránmald in her condition. My son lies behind us, dead in the snow, where he fought off Orcs so that these women could steal away.

'Will you lay him to rest? My sword is just here...I will not need it anymore. Lay -- lay it with him.'
