Bestowal dialogue

'Well now, you can see that this place is in a state unfitting for a dwarf like myself: too many leaks and not enough production. Add to that all the toads and lizards skittering about and...well, I am sure you understand what I mean.

'I suspect that the toads and lizards are being pulled along with the currents and getting stuck in the pipes, gumming them up.

'Do me a favour and thin out their number here and in the Waterworks surrounding the Great Wheel, then return to me. We will see if we can get these pipes working as they should.'


The Waterworks is a site of importance to the dwarves who wish to remain in Moria. Once such dwarf, Foreman Indrith, has made it a mission to repair the channel there.

Objective 1

Toads and lizards can be found within the Waterworks surrounding the Great Wheel.

Foreman Indrith believes that the toads and lizards may be clogging the piping of the Waterworks.

Indrith: 'We have to clar the pipes first, then we can think about getting the Water-works up and running. I already sent a dwarf ahead to examine the workings, but we must keep our attention here for the time being.
'Do your best to rid the area of lizards and toads, and when you think you killed enough, return tome, and we will see if we can get the wheels working correctly again.'

Objective 2

Foreman Indrith can be found in the Wheel-house, beneath the Great Wheel.

You cleared a good many toads and lizards out from the Waterworks surrounding the Great Wheel and should now return to Foreman Indrith to inform him of your work.

Indrith: 'Good, good. We can now see if the Great Wheel is ready to turn on its own once more, then set about fixing these leaks.'
