Bestowal dialogue

'While you were gone, we lost control of one of our watchtowers, and the Orcs who took it renamed the encampment Nîn-stazg.

'These enemies are from Mordor, <name>. Mordor! I understand you have experience with such foes. I will go there myself and fight them, and I hope you will join me.

' mother wishes to say something. Well, please do not take too long. I will meet you out on the field of battle, my friend -- at Nîn-stazg!'


Machines of war are being constructed at Nîn-stazg, and their purpose is to lay Floodwend to ruin. Radwig wishes to go fight the forces of Mordor himself, but his mother is not thrilled with this idea.

Objective 1

  • Find out why Etta suddenly protests

Etta, mother of Thane Radwig, is in the Mead Hall of Floodwend.

You should speak with Etta.

Etta: 'Do not encourage him, <name>! Radwig is not warrior yet, and he endangers his life with such mad ideas.
'No, Radwig, you must not go to this Orc encampment.'
Etta says, "You shall not go out, Radwig. It is too dangerous!"

Objective 2

  • Hear Radwig's reply

The young Thane Radwig is in the Mead Hall of Floodwend.

You should speak with Radwig.

Radwig: 'Nonsense. My father would never have stood by while the forces of Mordor captured our defences. I will go and fight these Orcs. How else will I command the respect of my people?
'My mother cannot change my mind.
'I will see you at Nîn-stazg, <name>! I look forward to drawing my sword with yours.'
Radwig says, "I will go, and there will be no more discussion on the matter. Let us meet on the field."

Objective 3

  • Talk to Radwig at Nîn-stazg

Radwig wishes to meet you outside of Nîn-stazg, an Orc-encampment in the south-east of the Wold.

You should search for Radwig near Nîn-stazg, for he wishes to help you drive out the Orcs there.

Floodwend Guard: 'My lady Etta has sent us to protect the Thane. He should not go into battle, but he may observe the battle from here, should he wish it.'
Radwig: 'My…my mother sent these guards to keep me out of harms way, and now they will not let me anywhere nearer Nîn-stazg than this. So many Orcs! Yet I yearn to prove myself in battle….
Your heart goes out to this bold young man, but it is clear that this is not the time for him to be fighting.
He was brave for venturing out, but he is not ready, and he is of more use to his folk alive than dead. You tell him what you think.
You encourage the youth Radwig to remain safe with his guards, for these Mordor Orcs are fierce, and his people need him
Radwig says, "Thank you, my friend, for taking on this burden. I will remain here; I have not seen enough of war."

Objective 4

  • Destroy Siege Machines (0/3)

Siege machines can be found at Nîn-stazg to the south-east of Floodwend.

You should destroy siege-weapons that you find in the woods.

Radwig: 'I long for the day when I can fight my own battles without adults interfering….'

Objective 5

  • Return to Radwig outside of Nîn-stazg

Thane Radwig is in the Floodwend Mead Hall.

You should speak with Thane Radwig.

Radwig: 'It was a pleasure to watch you fight, <name>! I have never seen such bravery on the training ground. When I saw you fight, I imagined my father in battle, and it gave me heart.
'You were good to destroy those siege-machines. They would have done Floodwend much harm. The next time Orcs attack out lands, it will be me hewing at their limbs.'
