Bestowal dialogue

"Skorgrím's Dourhands have taken refuge from the wrath of Dunn's Folk within an ancient dwarf-hold high in the passes of the Misty Mountains. There, they plot their return, unless an end can be put to their scheming once and for all...."

Background

With your help, Glóin was able to obtain the key-stone to the secret entrance leading to the inner keep of the dwarf fortress located in the pass of Gabilazan. Alongside his son, Gimli, he has asked you to go into this keep and put a stop to the Nazgûl and Skogrím.

Objective 1

Speak with Gimli to begin your foray into the dwarf-keep.

The dwarf-keep in the pass of Gabilazan might be both the last hiding-place of the Dourhands led by Skorgrím and the Nazgûl you have pursued through the Trollshaws and into the Misty Mountains.

Gimli: 'Skorgrím must think that the walls of his fortress will keep him safe, tall and broad as they are, but he does not know about the key-stone you recovered.
'We will fight our way through his remaining defences, and perhaps I will give him one chance to come out of the main gates of the keep to face me in combat. He has no honour, so my challenge will probably go unanswered. It is just as well, but my axe is anxious for the chance to end this fool Dourhand!
'Are you ready? The Dourhands cannot hope to stand against us!'
Gimli says, "Your doom has arrived, Dourhands!"
  • Assist Gimli
Gimli says, "Let us rest here a moment, and then we will see about ending these villains!"
Gimli says, "Giants! This may be a harder fight than I thought...."

Objective 2

  • Talk Gimli

Speak with Gimli to continue your foray into the dwarf-keep.

The dwarf-keep in the pass of Gabilazan might be both the last hiding-place of the Dourhands led by Skorgrím and the Nazgûl you have pursued through the Trollshaws and into the Misty Mountains.

Gimli: 'I am ready to go on, if you are as well. I will challenge Skorgrím to come down, and if he does not, we will seek out the hidden door.'
  • Assist Gimli
Gimli says, "Let us see now what Skorgrím has to say."
Gimli says, "Skorgrím, you cannot hide here forever!"
Skorgrím Dourhand says, "You are a fool, Gimli, son of Glóin! You cannot hope to pass these strong walls!"
Gimli says, "So be it. If you won't come down, Skorgrím, we'll come up!"

Objective 3

  • Talk to Gimli

Speak with Gimli to continue your foray into the dwarf-keep.

The dwarf-keep in the pass of Gabilazan might be both the last hiding-place of the Dourhands led by Skorgrím and the Nazgûl you have pursued through the Trollshaws and into the Misty Mountains.

Gimli: 'It seems these Dourhands were not expecting us to come in by the hidden door, <name>.
'This is amusing, but I tire of dealing with lesser Dourhands. Let us find Skorgrím with no further delay.'
Gimli says, "They haven't thought to guard the hidden door. That will be their undoing!"
Gimli says, "I will use the keystone to open the door!"
Gimli says, "Time has been cruel to this mechanism..."
Gimli says, "Now to find the Nazgûl and Skorgrím!"
  • Assist Gimli
Gimli says, "It's time we finished this. The Nazgûl and Skorgrím have nowhere else to hide!"

Objective 4

You have made your way deep into the dwarf-keep. It is nearly time to confront the Nazgûl and Skorgrím. Speak with Gimli to begin the final battle.

The dwarf-keep in the pass of Gabilazan might be both the last hiding-place of the Dourhands led by Skorgrím and the Nazgûl you have pursued through the Trollshaws and into the Misty Mountains.

Gimli: 'Skorgrím has nowhere left to hide, <name>, and I think he now realizes it. His doom stands outside his door, and he has no chouce but to face it!
'Are you ready for battle?'

Objective 5

  • Defeat Skorgrím

You have made your way deep into the dwarf-keep. It is nearly time to confront the Nazgûl and Skorgrím. Speak with Gimli to begin the final battle.

The dwarf-keep in the pass of Gabilazan might be both the last hiding-place of the Dourhands led by Skorgrím and the Nazgûl you have pursued through the Trollshaws and into the Misty Mountains.

Gimli says, "Come out, you villains! Your day is done!"
Nazgûl says, "Who dares intrude upon these grounds?"
Nazgûl says, "Thrice accursed fools! I shall tolerate your hounding of my steps no longer!"
Nazgûl says, "Skorgrím! Deal with these interlopers and then bring your men to Helegrod."
Skorgrím Dourhand says, "As you command."
Skorgrím Dourhand says, "You have gained entry through some dishonourable means, Gimli, son of Glóin."
Skorgrím Dourhand says, "You shame the Longbeards with your sneaking and crawling! Begone!"
Skorgrím Dourhand says, "I will finish you myself!"
Skorgrím Dourhand says, "My masters will torment your shades!"
Skorgrím Dourhand says, "The doom of the north will fall upon you!"
Skorgrím Dourhand says, "You may wound this body, but this body is nothing to me!"
Fell Spirit says, "This vessel has served our purposes well, but now its time is past."
Fell Spirit says, "Yes, I am close now. Very close to my objective."
Fell Spirit says, "And now to my final task!"
Gimli: 'You fought well, <name>, and we have put an end to Skorgrím's menace! I am troubled by the escape of the Nazgûl and the apparition that appeared upon Skorgrím's death, but there is nothing we can do about that right now. At least we have paid the Dourhands for their treachery! Ha ha!'
Gimli: 'It was a good battle, but I think it is time to leave. I am ready to journey back to the guest rooms at Rivendell when you are.'
