Bestowal dialogue

' <name>! An icy chill grips my heart, and it takes all of my strength to stand here at the wall; my heart quails, and would have me fly from my post in terror!'

Ingold lowers his voice, and speaks in hushed tones.

'The Enemy has catapulted vile ammunition onto the city: heads they have taken from soldiers caught outside the walls, in the Pelennor, and Talath Anor. The barrage has caused men to cast down their weapons, fleeing from the sight of friends and family returned in this horrible fashion. I am not immune to this weapon of Mordor! I have recognized faces in that terrible rain: it was the fate of Barathant, <name>, and I wept to see it.

'Can you gather up the weapons and shields that were dropped by frightened men as they fled their stations? We need that equipment, and those men, if we are to stand against the armies of Mordor!'

Background

You have found Ingold engaged in the defence of the city, and he struggles against the pall of terror that has fallen upon Minas Tirith.

Ingold: 'Thank you for gathering up that equipment, my friend. Now we need men to wield them once again!
'I do not blame them for running. Evil are the sights of war, but this is worse than even a hardened soldier of Gondor could expect. But we must not give up hope! If the men who ran do not return and fight, they will prove great allies to the foes outside the city. Only by returning to their posts and facing their fears can they strike a blow against such evil!
'Find the men who ran, <name>. Tell them to return! We need every soldier of Gondor to master his fear and stand against the host of Mordor, or all is already lost.'
