Bestowal dialogue

"What secrets lie in the depths of the Mordath? The little Dwarf-king and his people will soon know more than they dared imagine! Ah, but what is this? Another dwarf stands upon the threshold...."


Deep in the depths of Barad-dûr, there lies a passage into the Mordath, the Black Pits of Mordor, through which Váskmun Greytooth intends to lead the Firehorns in his quest to reclaim the Dwarf-ring, Manthríf.

Objective 1

  • Talk to Gimli

Gimli can be found on the precipice within the abyss of Mordath.

You descended into the abyss of Mordath and have come to a ledge within depths of Barad-dûr. You should speak to Gimli and begin your search for King Váskmun Greytooth and the Firehorns.

'It is quiet here, <name>...
'If Váskmun and the Firehorns came to this place, they did so by another way. Knowing Váskmun, he probably marched his army right up to the gates of Barad-dûr!
'Hah! There will be no tale of proud dwarves this day, my friend. Váskmun's pride does his folk no good at all!
'Now, we must find some sign of him or his folk before we are discovered.
'Let us go!'

Objective 2

  • Search the depths of Barad-dûr for King Váskmun Greytooth and the Firehorns

Gimli can be found in the depths of Barad-dûr.

You are searching the depths of Barad-dûr for King Váskmun Greytooth and the Firehorns. You should follow Gimli and keep a keen eye on the shadowed tunnels of the Dark Tower.

Gimli says, Oh, I don't like the look of this at all....
Gimli says, We must find the passage into the Mordath, <name>, and we must do it swiftly!
Gimli says, This is Barad-dûr, after all! Váskmun and his folk may be the least of our concerns!
Gimli says, <name>, I think we have come too late....
Gimli says, Aye, the Firehorns have left a trail of dead in their wake....
Gimli says, This was a battle between warriors and scholars...these evil Men stood no chance of overcoming Váskmun and his folk.
Gimli says, The Firehorns came by this way, I think.
Gimli says, The trail of dead descends deeper into the caverns. Let us see where it leads!
Gimli says, By Durin's beard, what terrible works! What is this place?
The caverns suddenly grow wider, and you come to a room dwarfed by statues of Sauron and his servants...

Objective 3

  • Talk to Gimli in the Chamber of the Watchers
'What is all this?
'Váskmun and the Firehorns must have come through here... for the trail of dead has led us to this chamber. Hmmm...
'Look, the passage descends even further! Oh no, <name>, don't you dare think I've become jealous! Whatever this pace might be, it is no Khazad-dûm!
'Ah, but something here leaves me uneasy, my friend. Does it seem to you that that statue is looking at us?
'Because it sure seems so to me!'

Objective 4

  • Confront the glamor in the Chamber of the Watchers

The glamor can be found in the Chamber of the Watchers in Barad-dûr.

A glamor has risen from the statue of Sauron in the Chamber of the Watchers. You and Gimli must stand fast!

Gimli says, Sauron! No, it cannot be....
Remnant of the Dark Lord says, None may enter the Mordath unbidden!
Remnant of the Dark Lord says, Begone, dwarf!
Gimli says, Dwarf? I am Gimli, son of Glóin -- warrior of Durin's Folk!
Gimli says, And if I mean to enter the Mordath, I will!
Remnant of the Dark Lord says, As it was planned, the Dwarf-king leads his people into certain doom!
Remnant of the Dark Lord says, He shall not find the Ring he seeks, but he will find the Rings that were lost!
The glamor, one of the malevolent remnants of the Dark Lord, fades into the shadows...
Gimli says, It's threats to the very end, eh?
Gimli says, The Rings that were's some sort of trap, I think!

Objective 5

  • Talk to Gimli in the Chamber of the Watchers

Gimli can be found in the Chamber of the Watchers in Barad-dûr.

You have repelled the attacks of a glamor, one of the remnants of the Dark Lord himself, which warned of an insidious trap laid for the Firehorns and King Váskmun Greytooth. You should now speak to Gimli.

'Some kind of trap? I don't like the sound of this at all!
'We're going to need more than you or I if Váskmun and the Firehorns went down there, and if you ask me, we shouldn't wait around for those Eye-mad cultists to find us either!
'Let us return to the ruins of Dingarth, and tell Legolas and the Stout-axes of what we have learned!'
'I think we've seen enough, <name>!'
