The Dreaming Dwarf
"I say again: show yourself to us, villain! Only cowards hide behind such a veil of deception!"

Background

A strange sorcery envelops the forgotten chamber deep below Gundabad. What secrets lie within?

Objective 1

  • Talk to Durin in the forgotten chamber

Durin stands in the forgotten chamber deep beneath Gundabad, boiling with rage.

Durin: 'Something is not right, <name>. Some servant of Mótsog the Traitor may lie in wait, seeking to harm us.
'Remain on your guard.'

Objective 2

  • Remain on your guard

Durin has asked you to remain alert for any sign of danger.

Durin says, "The statue of the Traitor is so life-like. Is this a tomb?"
Durin says, "I can almost hear him."
Durin says, "But how can I know the sound of the Traitor's words?"
Durin says, "The bearer of that voice died long ago!"
Durin says, "And yet I am put in mind of the Anvil of Winterstith, and of a voice that spoke through the ice."
Durin says, "It spoke of dwarves long-dead, and of great deeds."
Durin says, "It was the voice of a dwarf, not a dragon."
Durin says, "It was the voice of a friend, courteous but stern."
Mótsog says, "It was I who spoke to you, Durin my friend."
Durin says, "Fell sorcery!"
Durin says, "Explain yourself, villain!"
Mótsog says, "Sorcery, aye, but not of the sort you fear."
Mótsog says, "This is the work of the First Crafter."
Durin says, "Lies!"
Mótsog says, "I would not speak falsely to you, Durin, my friend."
Durin says, "And yet you bear the visage of Mótsog the Traitor!"
Durin says, "How do you know my name?"
Mótsog says, "I know you for my friend Durin, for I have seen you in all your guises during my long sleep."
Mótsog says, "Your outward form does not hide you from the sight of my dream."
Durin says, "You say you know me."
Durin says, "So too do I know you: Mótsog the Traitor, leader of the Greymauls, father of treachery."
Durin says, "Why should I trust your words?"
Mótsog says, "I have seen much you have forgotten."
Mótsog says, "I will show these sights to you, that you may remember them."
Durin says, "What do you think, <name>?"

Objective 3

See, then, what you have forgotten

Mótsog says, "This was to be your end."
Durin says, "Every dwarf knows the tale. But this vision is so lifelike..."

Objective 5

  • Talk to Mótsog

It cannot be denied that Mótsog possesses a curious power. How can he reveal these visions to you?

Mótsog: 'They called it Durin's Bane, but I knew it by another name, in another age. Long before the creature came to hide in this forgotten cavern I knew it as Askâdurs, and the memory of its scorching passage through my city in the heights is cruel.
'But that was long ago.'
