Objective 1

Aragorn has agreed to tell you what he knows of Eärnur's last days.

Objective 2

  • Listen to the words of Aragorn concerning Eärnur

Aragorn has agreed to tell you what he knows of Eärnur's last days.

Aragorn says, "Every thought of King Eärnil was set to defending Gondor from the threat of Mordor."
Aragorn says, "He refortified the city, intending for Minas Anor to become an impenetrable fortress."
Aragorn says, "But for Men, even a long life must end. When Eärnil died, his son Eärnur ascended to the throne."
Aragorn says, "He was a grim ruler, but he intended to keep his people safe."
Aragorn says, "Minas Anor would be known by a new name: Minas Tirith, the Tower of Guard."
Aragorn says, "He longed for the recapture of every city and fortress Gondor had lost to Mordor's armies."
Aragorn says, "Perhaps that is why he allowed the messenger entrance to his halls."
Eärnur says, "Hail, guest. You are welcome in the halls of my fathers."
Morgul Messenger says, "Say you so? I do not feel it, O Great King."
Eärnur says, "Say on, then."
Morgul Messenger says, "I bring greetings from my master, he who is the Captain of Night and the Ruler of Iron."
Morgul Messenger says, "Know him too as the King of Minas Morgul."
Morgul Messenger says, "He has unfinished business with thee."
Eärnur says, "What business? I do not treat with such as he."
Morgul Messenger says, "Well does he know it! He saw you from across the field at Fornost..."
Morgul Messenger says, "...and you fled from him."
Eärnur says, "I did not flee!"
Morgul Messenger says, "It seemed to my master, and to all who saw it, that you fled in terror of his mighty presence."
Mardil says, "The king's horse was overmastered and bore him away, against his will."
Morgul Messenger says, "So you could not control your own steed, yet you think to control armies?"
Eärnur says, "I was not afraid of your master, then or now."
Eärnur says, "What is the message you bring? Deliver it, and then begone!"
Morgul Messenger says, "It is this."
Morgul Messenger says, "My master bids you return to his domain, alone."
Morgul Messenger says, "There he will do battle with you, sword to sword, with no one else to interfere."
Eärnur says, "And what stakes does he offer?"
Morgul Messenger says, "Should you triumph, he will quit the Vale of Morgul and the city that lies within."
Eärnur says, "And otherwise? I will not give him any of my realm, if that is his hope."
Morgul Messenger says, "Any? He has already taken some of your realm."
Morgul Messenger says, "You mean any MORE of it, surely."
Morgul Messenger says, "But why should he wish for that which he could take at will?"

Objective 3

  • Talk to Aragorn

Aragorn has agreed to tell you what he knows of Eärnur's last days.

Eärnur says, "So you have come back."
Morgul Messenger says, "The warmth of your hall has much waned, O King."
Morgul Messenger says, "I bear again my master's behest. It has not changed."
Eärnur says, "Why should our answer, then?"
Morgul Messenger says, "Time. It weighs on you. Heavy is every year that passes."
Morgul Messenger says, "You have had time to think upon your faint heart."
Mardil says, "No, my lord. Peace!"
Morgul Messenger says, "Peace, you say? I remember you from our last meeting, word-weaver."
Morgul Messenger says, "My master has spared a thought for you, too."
Morgul Messenger says, "For you I have a gift."
Mardil says, "Egalmoth!"
Aragorn says, "It was a corpse long-dead, its eyes glinting with profane malice, its flesh decayed."
Aragorn says, "But Mardil and Egalmoth were both of the House of Húrin, and were cousins."
Aragorn says, "In grief and disgust Mardil turned away, and he gave the messenger what he sought."
Aragorn says, "His silence."
Eärnur says, "This foulness will not stand!"
Eärnur says, "Run back to your master!"
Eärnur says, "Tell him the king rides at once to reclaim Minas Ithil!"
