Bestowal dialogue

"Suspicious of an unquenched fire in the distance, Faramir led Anborn and the Rangers to a campsite where they discovered neither Man nor Orc."


Anborn will not soon forget the doughty little Halflings who gave such cheek to his captain, Faramir.

Objective 1

  • Walk with the Rangers of Ithilien

The Rangers of Ithilien were patrolling to the north-east of Henneth Annûn.

Anborn is telling you a tale of strange travellers in Ithilien. You should listen closely.

Objective 2

  • Listen closely to Anborn's tale

The Rangers of Ithilien then spoke to the strange Halflings.

Anborn is telling you a tale of strange travellers in Ithilien. You should listen closely.

I discovered only a smoldering fire, and none nearby to tend it...
Anborn says,
"Here is the source of the smoke! Whoever or whatever made this fire will be nigh at hand."
Faramir says,
"Search the ferns, and trap it. Then we will learn what manner of creature it is."
Damrod says,
"And whatever it knows!"
It was then two small creatures leapt from the brush and raised their weapons against us!
Mablung says,
"What do we have here?"
Anborn says,
"These are not Orcs."
Ranger of Ithilien says,
Faramir says,
"They cannot be Elves, for it is said that Elves are fair to look upon."
Samwise Gamgee says,
"Hmph. Not fair to look upon, indeed!"
"When you’re done, maybe you should say who YOU are, and why you won't let two weary travellers get some rest."
Faramir says,
"My name is Faramir, Captain of Gondor. Ithilien has no travellers: only servants of the Dark Tower or the White."
Frodo Baggins says,
"We are servants of neither. And though Captain Faramir says otherwise, travellers we are."
Faramir says,
"Then declare yourself and your errand at once. This is no time for riddles. Where is the third member of your company?"
Frodo Baggins says,
"The third member?"
Faramir says,
"You know the one. The skulking creature, some stealthy breed of Orc perhaps. He gave us the slip by some trickery."
Frodo Baggins says,
"He is only a chance companion we met along the road, so I cannot answer for his whereabouts."
"But please spare him if you come upon him. He is only a wretched gangrel-creature under my care for a time."
"As for us, we are simple hobbits from the Shire, a land far from here."
"I am Frodo son of Drogo, and here is Samwise son of Hamfast, a hobbit in my service."
"We have walked far, our path taking us from Rivendell."
"We set out with seven companions: one fell in Moria, and the rest we left at Parth Galen."
"Our company consisted of an Elf, a dwarf, two more of my kin, and two Men...."
"...Aragorn the Ranger, and Boromir, who came from Minas Tirith."
Ranger of Ithilien says,
"Captain Boromir!"
Ranger of Ithilien says,
Ranger of Ithilien says,
"Captain Boromir!"
Faramir says,
"You came with Boromir, son of Denethor? That is strange news indeed, if true."
"What had you to do with him? Speak swiftly!"
Frodo Baggins says,
"Is the riddle that Boromir brought to Rivendell known to you?"
"Seek for the Sword that was Broken; in Imladris it dwells."
Faramir says,
"Yes, those words are known to us.’'
Frodo Baggins says,
"It is Aragorn who bears the Sword that was Broken. As for the Halflings in the rhyme: we are they."
Faramir says,
"That is plain to see. But what is Isildur's Bane?"
Frodo Baggins says,
"That is hidden."
Faramir says,
"We must learn more of this, but now is not the time or place."
"You were in great peril, and would have been caught in a hard battle had we not come upon you when we did."
"Mablung and Damrod will guard you, for your own good and mine."
"If I survive, I will speak more with you upon my return."
Frodo Baggins says,
"Farewell! Whatever you think, I swear that we are friends to all foes of the One Enemy."
"If my errand allowed it, I would wish to go with you and serve you in your cause, if we could hope to be of help to such doughty Men."
"Let the light shine ever on your swords!"
Faramir says,
"Halflings are courteous folk indeed, whatever else they be. Farewell!"
I will not soon forget those Halflings, for they were bold to give Faramir such cheek!
Anborn: 'That is all I have to tell for now, my friend.'
