Bestowal Dialogue

'I am afraid that speaking with the Gauredain is unlikely to buy us anything -- they are very nearly feral creatures, and the influence of the Orcs means they are unlikely to look upon Elves such as myself kindly at all.

'If they discover us here there is every likelihood that they will attempt to drive us out -- and while neither Longbough nor I would allow it, to have such bloodshed occur on our very doorstep would wound Lithuifin deeply, and I would not wish to involve him so.

'I would ask you to hunt down some small number of their hunters and warriors that have wandered south of the river -- not so many as to cause them grievous hurt, but enough to warn them that these lands are not theirs, nor are they welcome here. It would also be best if you could find one of their leaders, for such tribes are often deeply superstitious and the loss of such a leader can set them aback greatly in fear.'

Background

Erchiel has asked you to defeat several of the Gauredain in order to frighten them and keep them from exploring further south.

Objective 1

Erchiel has asked you to defeat a number of Gauredain in order to instill in them a healthy fear of the forests.

The Gauredain she speaks of can be found in the forests north of the river that passes by the Eavespires.

Erchiel: 'You will not have to search far for the Gauradan that roam these forests.
'I fear that it is only a matter of time now before they discover us here at the Eavespires, unless you can deter them from coming south of the river.'

Objective 2

  • Talk to Erchiel

Erchiel is at the Eavespires on the north-west shore of Lake Evendim.

You should return and tell Erchiel of your forays against the Gauredain.

Erchiel: 'It seems you have fought well against the Gauredain, but from your descriptions of their savagery I realize that I have been hasty and foolish myself...
'Forgive me. I have fought a great many battles and lost many things I have cared for and become something of a creature of habit. they way of the sword comes to my hand and thoughts as readily as breathing, and I fear it may always be so. I have misjudged the Gauredain -- they are feral and brutal perhaps, but unlike the craven Orcs and goblins, it seems they are yet unbowed and carry a great pride with them -- they will not be cowed by such an assault.
'I will consult with Lithuifin on the matter, for he is gentler and in his own manner a more clever Elf than I, and certainly his mind is less clouded with thoughts of glory long lost. We will speak again shortly when I have had more time to consider our next course of action.'
