Grimbeorn says, "I thank you for gathering with me to feast and tell tales."
Grimbeorn says, "It is a tradition we honour, for Beorn himself had done the same and learned much from tales spoken over a feast."
Grimbeorn says, "Now let us eat!"
Sterkist says, "This food is delicious, Gírta."
Gírta says, "Now Sterkist, you should know I did not make this entire feast alone. We all helped, you included!"
Sterkist says, "Yes, yes, but it is still delicious!"
Gírta says, "Ha, ha!"
Grimbeorn says, "Perhaps a story while we eat, Sterkist?"
Sterkist says, "Certainly. Some have heard this one before, I think...."
Sterkist says, "Langhár and I left the company of the Elves in Felegoth."
Sterkist says, "But then, we were ambushed by the trees themselves!"
Sterkist says, "Langhár escaped but not before I was captured by the mythical Taurogrim!"
Sterkist says, "Thank the bees, Langhár and <name> came to my rescue when they did."
Sterkist says, "Else, that would have been the last of me!"
Grimbeorn says, "A fine tale. Hállkell, have you a story to tell too?"
Hállkell says, "Around the time Sterkist befell the Taurogrim, I too ran into trouble."
Hállkell says, "Elf traders and I were escorting supplies and provisions from the Beorning-lands."
Hállkell says, "We made it through the Forest Gate, but not much further!"
Hállkell says, "Spiders attacked the Elves viciously, tearing them limb from limb!"
Hállkell says, "I tried to fight them off, but I could not save my companions."
Hállkell says, "Then <name> rescued me from shock and escorted me back to Felegoth."
Hállkell says, "I am glad that <name> is here with us, that is certain!"
Grimbeorn says, "<name>, you have been quite the helpful to many in the North."
Grimbeorn says, "What say you Gandalf and Legolas, of <name>?"
Gandalf says, "My tales with <name> are numerous. Many I am not sure you would believe!"
Gandalf says, "I would much like to listen, rather than speak, this night."
Grimbeorn says, "You enchanted Beorn with your tales, I would very much like to hear one, Gandalf."
Gandalf says, "Oh very well, twist the old man's arm...."
Gandalf says, "On the march to the Black Gate of Mordor, I worried the Enemy at Minas Morgul would attack the Host from the rear."
Gandalf says, "I convinced Aragorn, the King of Gondor, and <name> here to delve into the Morgul Vale."
Gandalf says, "We stood at the very doorstep of Minas Morgul, upon the only bridge wide enough for armies of the Enemy."
Gandalf says, "Valiantly we fought foes and destroyed the bridge, to protect the Host as they moved ever through North Ithilien."
Legolas says, "It was not long after that the Easterlings prepared an ambush for all of us."
Legolas says, "If not for <name> spotting the ambush, the Easterlings may have been successful."
Legolas says, "We surprised the raiding party, fought valiantly, and got the upperhand."
Legolas says, "The road to the Black Gate was clear."
Gírta says, "Astonishing!"
Hállkell says, "I agree!'
Grimbeorn says, "A fine story! Now I know how Beorn felt when he welcomed you, Gandalf, and fourteen of your company into his lodge!"
Grimbeorn says, "What is another guest, so long as the tale continues? Ha, ha!"
Sterkist says, "Pass the taters please."
Grimbeorn says, "Eat, eat! I will ask for no more tales to be told at this feast."
Grimbeorn says, "Now, both Elves and Eagles work with us to protect our home."
Grimbeorn says, "Gandalf, Legolas, <name>, you are all to thank for making the Beorning-lands safer."
Grimbeorn says, "Thank you for a feast and a fine evening, each and every one of you."
