Bestowal Dialogue

'Do you think he might have strayed near Giant Valley? I hope not, but we cannot strike that place from the list of sites to which he might have ventured... not without checking it first!

'It is fortunate for us that we have a friend in that valley, <name>.'

Background

Did Bilbo venture into Giant Valley, and if he did, did he emerged again unharmed?

Objective 1

If Bilbo strayed into Giant Valley, there may yet be a friendly face willing to help recover him.

Arifael may have seen our missing hobbit. The trick may be getting him to tell us!
Arifael: 'This dangerous place, little <race>. If you say hobbit came to Giant Valley, hobbit in big danger. Not all his kin friendly as Arifael.
'But I will bring you to giant-dwellings in Stonemere. Maybe save little hobbit, if not too late.'

Objective 2

  • Fight alongside Arifael and investigate Giant Valley

If Bilbo strayed into Giant Valley, there may yet be a friendly face willing to help recover him.

Arifael says, "Watch your head."
Arifael says, "Some of my kin followed Storvâgûn the Traitor to Helegrod, and left their dwellings empty."
Arifael says, "Rock-worms and wood-trolls move in. We move them out while we look for hobbit!"
Arifael says, "Let that be a lesson to all beasts: this be GIANT place!"
Arifael says, "Hmm... no sign of missing hobbit."
Arifael says, "Hobbit... missing."
Arifael says, "Sorry, <name>."
Arifael says, "I hear giant approaching! You better hide, <name>."

Objective 3

  • Hide in the dwelling just north of Arifael, and quickly!

You should conceal yourself behind the hide-covered dwelling just north of Arifael, and quickly!

Arifael says, "Hide in dwelling! Do not emerge!"
This should be safe enough. Stay inside, and do not come out!

Objective 4

  • Remain in hiding and listen to the conversation of the giants
  • Do not be seen by Mendorn

Mendorn has arrived and is none-too-pleased to see Arifael.

Mendorn says, "Arifael! What mischief brings you to my home?"
Arifael says, "Your home? You gave up this place when you fell in with Storvâgûn!"
Arifael says, "How does it feel to be Angmar's lackey?"
Mendorn' : 'Bah! You are not one to talk, Arifael."
Mendorn says, "Always friendly with little vermin."
Mendorn says, "'Arifael is our pet, that is what they say."
Arifael says, "Lies! Not true!"
Arifael says, "But I not side with evil folk."
Mendorn says, "What is that I smell?"
Mendorn says, "Did some tiny creature take Arifael for walk?"
Arifael says, "You smell rock-worms, that is all."
Mendorn says, "No. Not rock-worms."
Arifael says, "Wood-trolls, then."
Mendorn says, "No. Not wood-trolls."
Mendorn says, "I smell this, tiny pest!"

Objective 5

  • Talk to Mendorn
  • Arifael must not be defeated

Mendorn is prepared for combat.

Mendorn:' 'I will squash you into jelly, tiny pest, and then do the same to your pet! He may look like giant, but he not actual giant.
'On the inside, he small like you!'

Objective 6

  • Defeat Mendorn
  • Arifael must not be defeated

Mendorn is prepared for combat.

Mendorn says, "Die, tiny pest!"
Mendorn says, "I give up! I give up!"
Mendorn surrenders in defeat!

Objective 7

  • Talk to Arifael

Arifael is satisfied that Bilbo never came here.

Arifael: 'We put Mendorn into his place, and there he will stay! It will be some time before he dares fight with us again.
'I do not think he has seen your friend. Your Bilbo did not come this way.'
Mendorn says, "I not see anything like that."

MISSION COMPLETE!

Arifael: 'Return to Elves. Tell them Bilbo did not come this way. He must have gone somewhere else.
'Now so must you.'
