King Váskmun Greytooth says, Exile? I do not understand.
Gimli says, It is a tale of dwarves, dragons, and days long ago. Do you wish me to tell it, King Váskmun?
King Váskmun Greytooth says, Of course!
Gimli says, Very well! I shall tell it as best I can!
Gimli says, For many years, even before the fall of Khazad-dûm, the dwarves dwelt in the Lonely Mountain.
Gimli says, When Khazad-dûm was lost, my folk fled to the Lonely Mountain and rebuilt our kingdom within it.
Gimli says, There sat the first King under the Mountain, and for many years, my people prospered.
Gimli says, But it was not fated to remain so....

Gimli says, Alas! With Erebor no longer guarded by a dragon, great armies gathered to lay claim to its treasures!
Gimli says, Although they did not begin the battle as our allies, Men and Elves alike aided my folk in repelling the Orcs of Dol Guldur!
Gimli says, The Necromancer's servant, Bolg, was defeated and Erebor became again a kingdom of the dwarves!
Gimli says, We learned in the years that followed that the Necromancer was Sauron himself, and in defeat, he fled back to this land!

Zôreth, Mistress of Lûghash says, Your dwarf friend told an interesting tale, Váskmun, and one that I know well.
Zôreth, Mistress of Lûghash says, Don't you see? It was the victory of his people that condemned you to the dungeons of Barad-dûr!
King Váskmun Greytooth says, You speak only lies, Zôreth! In truth, you abhor my people -- you never wanted to help us!
King Váskmun Greytooth says, Surrender Manthríf and I will spare you!
Zôreth, Mistress of Lûghash says, Will you now?
Zôreth, Mistress of Lûghash says, Take it! You won't get far before the Order kills you, and then it'll still be mine in the end!

King Váskmun Greytooth says, What have you done with it, Zôreth?

'For how long have you and Gimli consipred against me? Durin's Folk dammed my people! How do I know you did not find it in the Dark Tower when I asked you to search for it? Manthrift is mine!
'It is mine by right, and none shall stand in the way of its return! Not even you and Gimli!'

Her words still echoing in the heights of Lûghash, Zôreth falls defeated...

King Váskmun Greytooth says, Hearken to me, my brethren!
