Bestowal dialogue

"As days pass with no sign of the cold-drake, Vethúg Wintermind, King Thorin III Stonehelm has grown impatient and seeks to learn the truth of these matters. Unknown to the King under the Mountain, an unexpected return may prove a boon to Durin's Folk."

Background

As the North awaits the coming of Vethúg Wintermind, King Thorin III has received an urgent and unexpected summons from Ravenhill.

Objective 1

King Thorin III is at Ravenhill.

You have come to Ravenhill with King Thorin III and should now seek an audience with Dís.

King Thorin III: 'We have arrived, <name>.
'For many long years, even by the reckoning of Durin's Folk, Dís has been the Keeper of Ravenhill. Had Fili and Kili not met with their tragic fates, I do not know if she would have come to tend the peoples of Roäc. Such questions are best left unanswered, I think. Dís would not summon me without cause, and so I am curious to learn what matter could be so pressing. And perhaps of use to my kinsfolk upon the eve of battle!
'Shall we enter Ravenhill, friend?'

We shall know the truths beyond our sight, and be the better prepared for it!
