Bestowal dialogue

"Wynmar and his men brace for an Orc attack that threatens to be more dire than the earlier encounter on the hill, a mere taste of what is to come...."

Objective 1

Objective 3

  • See if Wynmar is ready to fight

Rothulf and Wynmar are at their camp in Thinglad.

Wynmar: 'I suppose it is time to let her go. I must. But...this all just seems so wrong now.
'Why did this happen, <name>? Have you ever felt this backwards sense that your life was fine until you met someone you could not have, then nothing would ever be as it should again?'
Wynmar says, "Yes...I suppose I must, Rothulf."
Wynmar says, "I fear that I will meet my death, by Orc or by this hole in my heart."
Wynmar says, "Bah! I will shake off such sobering thoughts for now."
Wynmar says, "<name> will help us get through this night, eh, Rothulf?"
Wynmar says, "What was that sound?"

Objective 5

  • Talk to Rothulf

Objective 7

  • See if Wynmar and Noriel need your help

Noriel and Wynmar are speaking quietly between themselves.

Wynmar says, "Noriel...! You came to help us."
Noriel says, "You fool! Do not stir -- you are poisoned!"
Wynmar says, "And yet I am happy. Is it not strange?"
Noriel says, "This is all my fault."

Objective 8

  • Ask Noriel if Wynmar will live

Noriel is tending to Wynmar's wounds.

Noriel: 'He is poisoned, <name>! I was coming to make amends for my coldness from our earlier meeting...if only I had been one moment sooner!

Noriel: 'Let us say our goodbyes, dear friend....'
