Bestowal dialogue

'After the Battle Under the Trees, many Orcs fled to the Emyn-nu-Fuin, cravenly hiding up in those hills from retribution. Even now they lurk in my domain. If I am to open westward trade once more, those paths must be made safe from the attacks of these Orcs.

'Will you patrol the way between here and the Vales of Anduin, keeping an eye out for any Orc?'
