The Hands of a Healer
"A great effort has been expended to find kingsfoil for the wounded, but now their survival depends upon Aragorn's healing skill."


Aragorn's skill at healing will be put to the test in the Houses of Healing.

Objective 1

Aragorn is by Faramir's bedside in the Houses of Healing.

Aragorn: 'Let us see if Faramir's condition has improved, <name>.'

Objective 2

  • Remain alert in the event you are needed

Aragorn is by Faramir's bedside in the Houses of Healing.

Aragorn says, "I crushed some of the kingsfoil leaves and cast them into steaming water."
Aragorn says, "Let us see if the healing odour refreshes Faramir's body and spirit."
Ioreth says, "I would not have believed the weed could smell so sweet!"
Ioreth says, "It puts me in mind of the roses of Imloth Melui, when I was young."
Ioreth says, "Kingsfoil is well-named, for what king could ask for better?"
Faramir says, "My lord... you called for me..."
Faramir says, "What does the king command?"
Aragorn says, "You know of me?"
Faramir says, "I do, my king. I want nothing but to climb from this bed and serve you."
Aragorn says, "You will serve me best by resting awhile, and having some food."
Aragorn says, "You have walked in the shadows for too long, and are weary."
Faramir says, "I will rest, if that is your command."
Faramir says, "But what man could lie idle when the king has come again?"
Aragorn says, "Farewell for now."

Objective 3

  • Follow Aragorn to Éowyn's bedside

Faramir has recovered, and now Aragorn goes to see if Éowyn's condition has improved.

Ioreth says, "A King, just as I said! Did you hear that? The hands of a healer, I said!"
Prince Imrahil says, "Your healing-skill is to be commended, Aragorn."
Aragorn says, "It proved sufficient for Faramir, but Éowyn's suffering is of a different sort."

Objective 4

  • Remain alert in the event you are needed

Aragorn is by Éowyn's bedside in the Houses of Healing.

Aragorn says, "Éowyn's suffering began before ever she faced the Witch-king, Éomer, did it not?"
Éomer says, "I do not know why you ask this of me, Aragorn."
Aragorn says, "Her unhappiness was clear to me at the moment of our first meeting."
Éomer says, "She tended to Théoden in his growing despair and sickness, it is true."
Éomer says, "That unhappiness was ours to share."
Mithrandir says, "But not entirely, Éomer, for you had deeds of arms and the riding of the free fields to occupy your mind."
Mithrandir says, "Éowyn did not, though she was your equal in spirit and courage."
Éomer says, "Mayhap I should have known, but I did not. I weep that this was to be her lot!"
Aragorn says, "I may be able to cure the hurts of her body, and draw her back from the darkness."
Aragorn says, "But if she wakes to that old despair, there is no healing I can give that will cure her of it."
Aragorn says, "Éowyn, daughter of Éomund, awake! Your enemy is gone and will trouble you no more!"
Éomer says, "Éowyn, Éowyn!"
Éowyn says, "Éomer, my brother. You live? They said you were slain..."
Éowyn says, "No, it must have been the voices in my dream that said that was so."
Éowyn says, "What of Théoden? Do not tell me that was dream as well, for I know it was not."
Éomer says, "The Lord of the Mark is dead, but he bade me give his farewell to Éowyn, dearer than a daughter to him."
Éomer says, "He lies now in the Citadel of Gondor, as befits the great honour with which he passed from this life."
Éowyn says, "I am glad to see the House of Eorl restored to its glory."
Éowyn says, "But what of Meriadoc the Halfling?"
Éowyn says, "You must make him a knight of the Mark, for he is valiant beyond measure!"
Mithrandir says, "He lies also in this house, and I will go now to him, but Éomer will stay yet awhile."
Mithrandir says, "Speak no more of war until you are restored to health, and renewed of hope!"
Éowyn says, "Health I may yet have, if there is an empty saddle for me to fill. But hope? I do not know."

Objective 5

Aragorn has gone to Merry's bedside to see if his work has aided the hobbit's recovery.

Objective 6

  • Remain alert in the event you are needed

Aragorn is by Merry's bedside in the Houses of Healing.

Peregrin Took says, "Is he going to be all right, Strider?"
Aragorn says, "He will be fine. I came in time, and have called him back."
Aragorn says, "The wound he suffered will heal, and I know there is strength in his spirit."
Aragorn says, "Master Meriadoc... your friends are here, and they wish to see you."
Meriadoc Brandybuck says, "I am hungry. What time is it?"
Peregrin Took says, "It is past supper-time, Merry. But I am certain they will let me bring you something!"
Mithrandir says, "I am certain as well, and it is said I know a thing or two."
Mithrandir says, "Indeed, for this Rider of Rohan I believe nothing will be held back."
Mithrandir says, "His name will be held in high honour within the city!"

Objective 7

  • Talk to Merry

Merry is still in bed, but he seems to be recovering.

Meriadoc Brandybuck: 'It is good to see you again, <name>! Do you remember when we crept to see Théoden's war-council in the Drúadan Forest? It feels to me as if that was years ago, but it cannot have been. I have been caught in a terrible dream, but already the memory of it is fading.
'I think supper will be just the thing, and afterwards perhaps a pipe. No, not a pipe. I don't think I will ever smoke again. Théoden was sorry he would not be able to speak of herb-lore with me, smoking our pipes in comfort and peace. I will never be able to smoke without thinking of him."

Objective 8

  • Comfort Merry

Merry is still in bed, but he seems to be recovering.

Aragorn says, "And why should you not, Merry?"
Aragorn says, "Light your pipe and think of him, for he kept his oaths and proved a great king."
Aragorn says, "He would be glad for you to think of him over a pleasant smoke, I think."
Meriadoc Brandybuck says, "You may be right! Thank you, Strider!"
Aragorn:' 'Thank you for all your help, <name>. We have done much good here, and there is more to do before I can rest. But I am glad that some of the evils that befell us upon Pelennor have been remedied.'
