Bestowal dialogue

'Welcome to Hobbiton, <name>. It's always nice to see new folk, and I think it's important to strengthen the bonds of friendship. I think you should call on Bounder Chubb in Needlehole and see if he has any work that needs doing. Needlehole has become such a busy place that it may require its own Shirriff soon!

'Needlehole is due north of Michel Delving, some distance past Little Delving, north-west of here. Don't be surprised if you find some dwarves there -- Needlehole is on the road to Ered Luin, and we've had more dwarf-traders coming through that way of late.

'You'll probably find Bounder Chubb on duty near the entrance to town.'


Shirriff Smallburrow believes you should become acquainted with the other Shirriffs and Bounders.

Objective 1

Bounder Chubb can be found on duty near the road leading into Needlehole, due north of Michel Delving, north-west of Hobbiton.

Shirriff Smallburrow has asked you to travel to Needlehole and offer your services to Bounder Chubb.

Shirriff Smallburrow: 'Please stop by Needlehole and introduce yourself to Bounder Chubb. Needle hole is north-west of Hobbiton, beyond Michel Delving and on the edge of the Rushock Bog.'
Bounder Chubb: 'Robin Smallburrow sent you? Hullo then. We may have a few things for you to do around here.
'These dwarves are mostly fine, steady, law-abiding folk, if a bit touchy at times, but some of them...well, let's just say a few of these dwarves are not good neighbours at all. Not at all!'
