Bestowal Dialogue

"Gwaihir the Windlord and his noble subjects have come to the aid of the Host of the West!"

Background

The Eagles have come to the aid of the Host of the West, and the tide of battle has turned.

Objective 1

Aragorn is on the slag-hill as the Battle of the Morannon rages all around him.

Aragorn: 'Gwaihir and the Eagles will keep the Nazgûl occupied, but the battle still rages on the ground, <name>! Let us press the advantage given to us by our winged allies and set the Orcs upon their heels!'

Objective 3

  • Fight alongside Aragorn at the Battle of the Morannon

Aragorn is on the slag-hill as the Battle of the Morannon rages all around him.

Aragorn says, "The tide turns in our favour!"
Mithrandir says, "<name>, to me!"

Objective 4

Mithrandir is on the slag-hill before the Black Gate.

Mithrandir: 'Do you sense that? Something is amiss, <name>, but I cannot discern what it might be. Some new artifice of the Dark Lord may be revealed to us!
'Stay near to me!'

Objective 5

  • Remain on your guard!
Éomer says, "The Nazgûl flee from battle? What can this mean?"
Aragorn says, "Sauron has summoned them back to Mordor. But why?"
Mithrandir says, "Stand, Men of the West! This is the hour!"
Mithrandir says, "The Ringbearer has completed his Quest!"
Mithrandir says, "Gwaihir, to me!"

Objective 5

  • Talk to Mithrandir on the slag hill

Mithrandir is on the slag-hill before the Black Gate.

Mithrandir: 'Frodo has fulfilled the Quest of the Ring, and he may still live! We must act quickly, <name>, or he will never come alive from the Black Land. If Gwaihir and his brother will bear us into Mordor, we may yet come to Frodo in time!
'Gwaihir, Lord of Eagles! Two times have you borne me, my friend, and this will be the last and the most needed! If your brother Landroval will bear <name>, we will have the best chance of finding Frodo before he is overcome!
'Fly now to Orodruin! Fly now to Mount Doom!'

Objective 6

Landroval has set you down upon the slope of Mount Doom while the Eagles circle the Mountain and seek for Frodo on the far side.

You found Frodo and Sam... they are alive!

Objective 7

You have found Frodo and Sam on the slope of Mount Doom, but you do not have long before the slope will be engulfed in flame!

Samwise Gamgee: ' <name>... is that... really you...?'
Sam looks at you with bleary eyes; his exhaustion is apparent, and he seems to disbelieve that you are really standing here.
'We can't... go any further... We got this far... but...'
Sam reaches into one of his pockets and withdraws a small item. He presses it into your hand.
'Where there's... life... there's hope...' he says.
Samwise Gamgee says, "Where there's... life... there's... hope..."
You have obtained the Phial of Galadriel

Objective 8

  • Walk to the edge of the outcropping… there is little time to spare!

You must stand on the edge of the outcropping if Gwaihir and his kin are to see you!
