Bestowal Dialogue

"Vethúg Wintermind - that is a name long-hated by the dwarves. He, the vile cold-drake whose frost once choked the halls of Thikil-gundu in the Grey Mountains, now comes to Erebor in vengeance. We have been granted little respite from battle, but we must stand against him or all shall be lost."

Background

After spending countless years within Thikil-gundu, Vethúg Wintermind, comes to seek a new vengeance upon Durin's Folk.

Objective 1

  • Talk to King Thorin III Stonehelm
  • King Thorin III Stonehelm must not be defeated

King Thorin III Stonehelm can be found before the gates of Erebor.

Vethúg Wintermind makes for Erebor, and King Thorin III Stonehelm has readied an army of dwarves and Elves to oppose him. You should speak to King Thorin when you are prepared to defend Erebor.

King Thorin III: '<name>...
'When first we tried to reclaim Thikil-gundu, we were overproud and greedy -- even by the measures of Durin's Folk! It mattered not to us if the Dragons had been sealed within the Anvil of Winterstith or if they had merely returned to the Withered Heath. Vethúg had long lain in wait within Thikil-gundu for the return of the Longbeards, and my folk did not know that when they closed the gates behind them, they wrought their own tombs. King Dáin was taken by surprise, and before he could raise his axe, Vethúg breathed a fell frost upon him. The ice encased him, and a swift gust of Vethúg's wings toppled and shattered our proud King. Frór sacrificed himself to save the few of us who remained to flee the gates of Thikil-gundu, but Vethúg had won his victory before the battle even began. We entered the Steel Keep in celebration... and we left it a broken people.
'This time, Vethúg will not take us by surprise. Let us join the defenders of Erebor below!'

There will be no rousing speeches or well-intentioned pleasantries before this battle, my friend. Vethúg is great cold-drake, and it shall take our combined might, mettle, and a fair share of good fortune to overcome him.
'Despite my misgivings, one of my scouts insisted upon remaining in the field. He is a brave dwarf for he knows that he may be the first to be spied from above by Vethúg.

When all hope was thought lost, a company arrived from Dale and the young King loosed one of the remaining Black Arrows of old at Vethúg Wintermind. It did not end him, but it pierced his wing and unsteadied him. Before a final blow could be struck, he took flight once more and fled Erebor in fear.
'Our foe is beaten... the day is won. There will be time enough to rest, recover, and grieve soon....'
