Bestowal Dialogue

'It is good to see you again, <name>! I know that you have acquired some expertise in your travels. Tell me: what do you think of these fortifications?

'The Rohirrim claim that none can break the wall, and the Hornburg will be the safest place in all of Rohan. I have my own thoughts on the matter.

'Will you have a look around and tell me what you think?'


Gimli is interested in the stability of the fortifications at Helm's Gate, and wishes to hear your opinion.

Objective 1

  • Examine fortifications at Helm's Gate (0/4)
  • Examine the gate

Fortifications can be found around the gate at Helm's Dike.

You should examine the various fortifications of the Rohirrim.

The gate is well-kept and hardy, but could easily be crushed by enemy siege-craft
This fortification is strong, but it will not keep out a great host of fierce Uruk-hai

Objective 2

  • Tell Gimli your observations of the fortifications at Helm's Gate

Gimli stands at Helm's Gate in the southern Westfold.

You should speak with Gimli.

Gimli: 'Well? What do you think, <name>?'
You quietly relay your observations to Gimli.
'I could not have said it better myself. There is good, strong rock here, but it is not enough. I fear for these men, doughty though they are.
'Tonight I expect to make a great stand at the Hornburg, and if it is my last battle, I will take many an Uruk with me!'
